- Anonymous said:The institution that awarded Steven Moffat a trophy for writing still thinks that "Modern Family" is the BEST comedy on TV. Boiled down, your argument is "Out of touch institution gives trophy to out of touch writer, so every single criticism leveled against him is now void." It's not terribly compelling, but as a fan of Moffat's writing, I'm sure it's what you're used to.

Yeah it is.
Well, OK, let’s fine tune it a bit. Being less misogynistic than the average showrunner is the same as being a feminist.
Look, some of...

OK, so to be clear here, I wrote six thousand words about Moffat and feminism that was based on a thorough evaluation of his entire quarter-century...
