That\'s So Raven on Family Channel

Can you not sit down and watch TV with your children after dinner without something that just does not sit well with you (I mean, aside from your dinner)?

The kids watch Family Channel in the evening. Usually Lizzie McGuire and then That's So Raven. So, it's on. Now, Jess doesn't always watch but he was tonight.

It's a cook-off that the father is entered in and Raven is his assistant. They have mushrooms laid out on the counter (there are two chefs making the same thing) and the father says, "you're highly allergic to mushrooms, don't touch them" and then he throws them out.

Well, in a small food fight that ensues, the competitor's daughter throws mushrooms at Raven and they end up in the stuffing which she has to taste. She doesn't know that they're in there.

She disappears from the screen for a minute and comes back up with her cheeks swollen probably ten times their size and her hands swollen up the same as well. Her father says "this is worse than last time, we have to get you to the hospital".

She says to her father that she'll be okay, that she was fine last time in five minutes, and he wants to win the competition, doesn't he? And they go on to finish and win the competition with her all bloated (and her bloated hands actually help them win).

I know. I know. It's helps to educate. But it reminds me of that movie that we were posting about just recently where things are done in poor taste for comedic reasons.

I just ended up having to tell the kids that obviously that's not how we would deal with a reaction, that while she was completing the competition and dancing around she could very well have been dead.

Actually, I'm really quite ticked off. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img]
