I tried watching Defiance. I mean... I watched it all the way through... not like I couldn't finish it or anything.
It's... what it is?
Like I would have been more into it a few years ago maybe? But now it's like, we have to call cops 'law keepers', and no one makes money they 'earn', and there's two/three new alien languages and, like, six species, but everyone has only two genders and guys are fighting over girls and by the end of a two hour pilot episode we have two husband/wife 203 kid families, one boy/girl marriage, and the two "main" guy and girl characters are making eyes at two other girl and guy characters.
Like, it's really neat that you had a shiny ball that blew stuff up and maybe laser knives, but I almost couldn't see any of that past the rampant heterosexual coupling.
It's the future for fuck's sake. There has been no development in sci-fi shows where they break boundaries and I'm like like 'why...???'.
Does everyone have to be straight and attached? Double whammy overload.
And mostly white? They went out of their way to make whiter aliens.
I could also do without whiny teenage type angst and diary writing. Or we could just make the show about her leaving the town to go to Antarctica, cause that seemed like a good plan.
Actually, I could do without whiny town/people/government type angst too.
I think this will be my 'why am I watching this, all I do is complain' show now.
Why can't we have a fun sci-fi show... maybe about a pizza place or something? I don't know.
Also watched the mtv movie awards. Most of it was terrible. But I've never really listened to Tom Hiddleston talk before... and he's like really british-y? Like polite and proper and I kind of want to be like ...'oh honey, don't look at Seth Rogan taking his pants off... let me take you to a nice awards show instead'... he also hugged children, and now I feel like protecting him from the terribleness of america. idk.
