Last Man Standing and the Manly Virtues

March 1, 2014

Just last week, an NBC article described Olympic gold medalist David Wise as living an “alternative lifestyle” for training for the Olympics as a young, married father. Not long ago, being a married 20-something father wasn’t an “alternative lifestyle.”

Turn on the TV in the evening and you will find a number of shows with men who eschew traditional family responsibilities. And conservative values are often the butt of the jokes. Well, for all of the conservatives out there looking for a comedy with a more traditional man as the lead character, check out Last Man Standing on ABC.
