this is i think one of those cases where they should just do
Game of thrones
Curb your enthusiasm
There are more but I wont drag it all out in one post haha
Also, I'm aware there's some tack in my list, but lets be honest, tvs full of tack, just that these are the ones I find more tolerable.
you part of the crew getting mad over fake characters casting?
I don't even know how to respond to this. If you wanna defend that casting choice go ahead.
Is anyone ever going to touch resident evil and actually not completely fuck the source material? Doubtful.
tv really is transcending cinema at this point
I'm trying to see why it matters whether or not the racoon city pd cops or whatever they were called, are white or not. Pretty irrelevant from my memory
Lance was cast as Albert Wesker dummy.
like it matters now ya fucking goof? "STARS POLICE ARE WHITE AND SHOULD BE BECAUSE"
Loving the Loki miniseries so far, might be the best thing to ever come out of the MCU.
He's the main antagonist of the entire franchise, not just some cop or minor character.
Anyone watched that"handmaids tale"? If so what are your thoughts?
My wife watched that shit and my thoughts are mostly…this is awful feminist propaganda dogshit dressed up as sci-fi for housewives… and I call it the handjobmaids tale because I see her physically cringe every time.
Feminism is triggering to folks 'round here.
I still need to watch that, but I'm so bad with shows. I only just finished season two of Stranger Things last night.
when it’s the only substance to the show, sure it is.
i’ve taken to watching stuff while i work from home, mostly comedies so i don’t need to actually concentrate that hard. binged the entirety of after life which was a pleasant surprise. it isn’t one of the funnier things gervais has been involved with, but it may bring the most pathos. it’s obviously a tribute to groundhog day and references it constantly, but i interpreted it as an apology from gervais for being such a dick over the years, taking characters that would normally be the butt of cruel jokes and giving them a lot of dignity and genuine pain etc. it doesn’t always get the tone right and there are a lot of incongruous juxtapositions between the maudlin and mean which didn’t work at all, trying to have and eat the cake as though the show is embarrassed about its sentimentality and has to undercut it (which is in keeping with its protagonist i suppose, but i think the show is generally not supposed to be mirroring that headspace but commenting on it). i also don’t like when he throws his little hot button topics in there so he can sneak in one of his opinions, like there’ll be dumb convos out of nowhere about what trans- means and stuff like that, feels very shoehorned in. but there’s also a lot of really well pitched and acted slice of life stuff that caught me off guard, it’s really sincere and generous toward characters when you least expect it, even some that most shows would reduce to pure gimmicks. i especially loved most stuff involving the ‘sex worker’, not sure i’ve ever seen that archetype portrayed quite like that before. i’ve only really seen that actress on panel shows before but she totally nails this. nearly all the side characters are remarkably well acted actually, it’s almost like watching mike leigh at times.
there’s even an arg character who says “the man who’s tired of the anus is tired of life”.
If you're being super reductive.
Or you could call it a fairly cohesive vision of a dystopian near-future where human fertility has declined and the ideas of the religious right are taken to the extreme, with caste or feudal type social hierarchies and the commodification of women's reproductive rights.
I'm hardly the biggest fan of the show but saying it's "just feminism" is like saying The Wire is just about race.
Man you really nailed how I feel about the show (warts and all). Reading this even makes me appreciate the show more than before, haha.
