No. I wasn't sure how they were going to stretch it out into multiple seasons but I didn't get past the first episode. I wanted to like it...That is so true. I did not get very far with the mist tv show.. did you enjoy it
I don't believe many people know why they hold their convictions. I don't believe many people have examined this about themselves. I don't think many people know why they care about what they care about. But people did support them, there have been plenty of films featuring homosexual characters and cross dressers. It isn't new, it's just being shoved down our throats now and everyone's acting like it was never this way before.agreed, its become a cardboard cutout of a trait that has become an attention harboring crowd pleaser. an embodiment of a stereotype ironically to please the people claiming to be against stereotypes. I don't know how people give in to an obvious attempt to capitalize off the attention given from spotlighting a minority group only after the majority of society is for them. Why didn't they support them back before it was legalized and much more controversial? No more questions, just buy the product.
I don't watch movies for their realistic representation of reality. I enjoy stories for the escapism. John McClane would not have survived the events of Die Hard, for example. Do you really like people focusing on those things or are you using sarcasm to vent your frustrations? We were conditioned in the past, we're being conditioned now. The entertainment industry has no responsibility to change America's attitude and I have not elected them to be my moral arbiter. I can recall a number of strong female icons and homosexual characters in movies for decades. Is it progress or are you being pandered to like everyone else in a demographic? And as an aside, referring to people who may not agree with you as troglodytes doesn't help maintain the image you are trying to present of diverse equality.or, and hang with me here, it could be they include characters of these stripes because thanks to the diverse nature of society, especially these days, having the whole bunch of characters be white and straight doesn't really reflect reality that much. i like how people love focusing on these characters as if it's somehow a bad thing for them to exist, given the glut of entertainment media that showcases white and straight. which is not an attack on white straight people before someone gets their knickers twisted. as for why not in the past, well, we can't exactly go back and change it, can we? the entertainment industry couldn't just overcome the attitudes in america regarding homosexuality overnight. they were operating in the same atmosphere that forced the majority of gay people to be in the closet for fear of retribution. you can choose to be cynical about it, and you can choose to view the very existence of a homosexual character as a negative (despite the look it presents), personally, i'll just be grateful that we've made enough progress that gay characters can just be in a movie/tv show without much fanfare outside of certain troglodyte hangouts on the internet.
