One of the most interesting and unexpected comments I’ve heard about Purgatory, USA is that it is retropure. What does that mean? As my brother told me, “My sixteen year old son has never seen a show like this. It’s very retro. It’s so sweet, like Leave It To Beaver or the Andy Giffith Show. A sweet show with a message learned at the end.”
I never even considered that. Amazing that today’s youth have never been exposed to simple, sweet shows that are not laced with sexual innuendo, dysfunctional marriages and gutter-like morals.
That’s a sad state for American TV. But, it does give Purgatory, USA a unique place in the entertainment spectrum.
