So, I realize this sort of comment brings out all sort of blowback, but what amazes me is that there are virtually no women on his new show. For awhile I was obsessed with this and tracked the number of minutes a woman was on screen, even in crowd shots, and it never topped 5 minutes. And experts in whatever geographic area he is studying? 0 women ever. What surprises me, is that this not remarked upon….by anyone. In all the dissections I have read about this latest show of his, no one has mentioned this. Do a mental experiment- if the next show was 50% female- how would it change for you?
