Mordecai is the bigger simp. No questions asked. If anyone tried to say anything about Finn and how 'but much princess bubblegum' is full of horseshit. He was a child when his 'simp' tendencies arose. So by that logic, he was simply having hormones and growing up. Meanwhile Mordecai is 23 years old when the show starts, meaning he only got older from there. And yet he constantly was simping. He should've learned that this shit ain't right when he was in high school, but he didn't apparently. Instead, he killed his long time best friend because Rigby wanted to make a point to Mordecai about how he should've been bros over hoes, not simping for Margret. But Mordecai doesn't care for that, choosing instead to continue simping. There is a scene that when I first saw, I didn't really care for. But ever since seeing the light and how much of a simp Mordecai truly is, I can't let go of. In the episode Pink Sweater, Mordecai is dealing with a rejection from Margret and is under a depression. Now, some would say that he still wrong for him to be sulking/simping, but I give him the benefit of the doubt. But what I cannot forgive is when after he finally lets her go, and he is doing laundry and finds her sweater, the first thing does is sniff it. This right there is maximum level SIMPING. This is not a debate, this is a realization. Mordecai is one of the biggest simp alive, the only other one being Morty from the fucking Pickle Rick Show

Well, the show had problems from the start. It couldn't get out of the trap it made for itself (sitcom but the story has a clear goal from the start) and lot of the comedy relied on subverting personality traits of the (one-dimensional) main characters which made heavy stuff harder to sell to the audience. Still liked it, but that was several years ago when I was somewhat younger.

>Probably an unpopular take but Westworld was a gorefest fantasy that they decided to make into a pseudophilosphical dialogue with events outright contradicting actions within Seasons.
The first season was the one that was heaviest on philosophy though. Part of why season 2 was awful was leaning into the violence and the confusing plots. The show as a whole has been heavily re-written so parts of it are contradictory for that reason. You can tell which parts of the first season are from the pilot because the hair and makeup is different and the budget was much lower, and the "high minded" questions about consciousness were there from the beginning. It's just a Bravo Nolan project so you gotta have some dumb action too. But supposedly that's meant to lure in the average viewer who wants sex and violence.

The first season is confusing on purpose because it's trying to take the audience along with the robots figuring out what's going on. The second season seems like it's confusing to stop reddit from figuring out the plot ahead of time like they did based on the clues and foreshadowing in season 1. The third season is much more straightforward, probably because they realized being confusing for its own sake is dumb. Also season 2 had serious continuity problems. They're not really doing anything about the cringy Nolan writing though.

The show is not exactly subtle about being anti-capitalist, so there's that.

 No.3528

Interesting, because I've been rewatching season one of Westworld and honestly, it was easily the best season. The stage presence of Anthony Hopkins certain helped but the plot had a superb mix of being straight-forward enough to follow with relative ease, while still giving you riddles and philosophical stuff. I really liked how they used the theory of the bicameral mind to hypothetically bootstrapping consciousness on the robots as an emergent property of the hosts "hearing" their own program code to the point where they'll eventually have to do introspection and therefore becoming conscious. I think the theory of the bicameral mind is flawed, especially from a Marxist standpoint (and Ford says it outright to Bernard that it's debunked too) but it actually makes a lot of sense with regard to the emergence of consciousness in an AI. It's coherent, it makes sense. The allegory with finding the path to consciousness as the center of a maze is also done pretty well. I'm not some liberal redditor but I do have to say that Westworld season one was probably one of the best things TV will give us. Shows rarely manage to mix in plot and characters that keep you invested, philosophical stuff and nuts for you to crack without it all being too convoluted. Just compare this with the absolute shitfest that was Star Trek: Picard that worked with a similar theme (probably ripped off Westworld, considering how Kurtzman rips off stuff all the time).

I also give them credit that they managed to do all this with the obvious ridiculous set-up with a theme park where people can play cowboy. Western crossovers have always been on the humorist side, so it wouldn't take a lot for it to feel silly if you don't hit the tone all the way through.

The problem with the center of the maze is that once you are there, the show is stuck between a rock and a hard place. They basically decided to get characters back into the maze again, which makes you immediately less invested, because you already heard the story about robots becoming conscious. To mitigate that, they ramped up the fantastic elements (Maeve getting some capeshit type superpowers and the weeabo stuff) and the riddles. If they really tried to make it overcomplicated so the redditors didn't figure it out (and didn't they anyway?), then that's absolutely retarded and fan service done wrong. It was impossible to follow at some points which is what nerdy screenwriters sometimes do when they lack substance, which they did at this point because season two has no coherent philosophical concept. The whole "actually, that guy was a robot all the time!" thing works once, but once you are pulling this off all the time you are lowering the stakes for audience investment, people actually being robots all the time obfuscates the actual difference between humans and robots. They were hinting at some darker things going on, with rich people wanting to live forever in the mind of hosts, secret weapons, or a plan to replace powerful people with copies controlled by whoever owns Delos. But they didn't follow through with that and resorted back to riddles. There are still some good episodes, episode four with the Delos now-robot guy being tested and the glycerin shenanigans by this bandit guy were some of the best scenes of the show. The episode with the native tribe was good as well.

Season three brings in the much-needed change of tone by ripping off Terminator a little bit, but that was probably necessary, you can't have another season in the park at this point. It's returning to the bigger questions such as surveillance capitalism, very overtly. The problem is that they still do this shit they did in season 2, having human characters turning out to be robots, having robots tested by other robots who are controlled by other robots. We see Charlotte Hale knowing she's a robot, and knowing that Dolores put a mind of someone in her we probably know, but then for the rest of the episode we see Tessa Thompson playing her heart out which would be amazing, but don't know who is actually in her, so we don't know what to do with this. I feel like the showrunners actually have some good ideas and plot lines, but for some reason have they have to do this narcissistic thing screenwriters often do, where they feel that they're smarter than their audience, so they have to write in an unnecessary twist. Westworld season three would work on its own - the plot, the characters, the social critique/philosophy - without adding the riddles and withholding information from the viewer. I also heavily dislike what they're doing to Maeve, she is a great character and Thandie Newton is incredible to look at for her age, but they are giving her this stupid arc where she only wants to be reunited with her daughter in some form of digital heaven. This is stupid, if Maeve was really conscious she would know how the affection for her daughter was just a remnant from a former narrative, she comes over as a very rational voice of reason, so it's out of character to fall for that. Furthermore, I'm going to be mad if that Serrac guy is actually just some projection of that Skynet AI - they would actually revert expectations when Serrac is really just Serrac and not some holographic projection, robot, or whatnot. Because when they are setting up Serrac vs Dolores, it's basically AI vs AI with humans out of the picture, and who really wants to know the outcome here anyway. Oh, and one last thing before I'm done here, it's inconsistent that the big secret is to figure out how to transport a human mind into a host mind without breaking the mind, when characters we believed to be human turned out hosts all the time. Also, wouldn't that be like dying anyway? It would still all fade to black for me, right? Even though when there is now a copy of me.

Walking dead was always kind of shit though. It kept me watching in the earlier seasons with the cliffhangers but I never liked the characters, they were all douches. Rick never stops being this cop asshole, Daryl is just fan service, Carol is a completely psychotic bitch, Carol is the kid everyone hates, Glenn is just bland, Maggie is an incredibly condescending know-it-all, Andrea is the woman everybody hates, etc. while they kill off characters that are tolerable all the time for the shock effect.

At least Westworld has characters - in my opinion - that are likeable.

Has there ever been such a gigantic drop in quality as it happened after season four of Games of Thrones? It's incredible how they ruined it. Although I was incredibly annoyed the Harry-Potterfication of the show due to being so enormously popular (as someone who has read A Song of Ice and Fire since being kid), I'm still kind of enamored with the first four seasons, despite some problems there arising as well.

People should never stop bullying the retards in pic related about it, but it's also sort of GRRM's fault for being such a lazy fat bitch.

Yeah, I also like Westworld overall. The 2nd and 3rd seasons overall are bad to questionable IMO but the first season was some well done scifi. It's a good mix of raising questions about technology and society but also an interesting story. Honestly they could have ended the series there and it would have been fine. But I don't know maybe in retrospect the second season will be better, if they were setting up things that don't pay off for a while. It certainly has potential.

The bicameral mind thing was probably the best aspect of it IMO. I read the actual book years ago and the way they present Dolores' perspective is very in line with that idea of cognition, particularly the journey to consciousness. You don't often see scifi go out of its way to explore how differently AI would think from humans, except robots not having emotions or something basic like that. The rest of the philosophy was pretty shallow but that gives people a bunch of different jumping off points to go deeper, which is probably best for a TV show.

>I'm not some liberal redditor but I do have to say that Westworld season one was probably one of the best things TV will give us.

Within capitalism, maybe. I still think The Wire is top TV though. That's pretty thoroughly exploring real politics and while you have cop protagonists they're not very sympathetic. Westworld has potential to be GOAT television but it has some glaring flaws like nobody understanding combat tactics and HBO-itis where you have to say fuck every other line.

>I also give them credit that they managed to do all this with the obvious ridiculous set-up with a theme park where people can play cowboy.

Constantly grounding it in video game logic is probably what makes it work tbh. "What if video games, but in real life?" is extremely played out in internet humor, but the show is more asking what happens when people internalize video game logic and then apply it to "real" people because they're just NPCs to them.

>If they really tried to make it overcomplicated so the redditors didn't figure it out (and didn't they anyway?), then that's absolutely retarded and fan service done wrong.

I don't think anybody predicted the major twists in season two, and unlike season one there was almost no foreshadowing or hinting at them. They also make little sense given the characters' motivations (more than one major twist happening because a character completely changed their mind about something at the last minute). Some of the convoluted plot does relate to the themes but it's handled in a needlessly obtuse way.
>I feel like the showrunners actually have some good ideas and plot lines, but for some reason have they have to do this narcissistic thing screenwriters often do, where they feel that they're smarter than their audience, so they have to write in an unnecessary twist.
I think they flat out said they are writing for the audience that wants to figure out the puzzles, which tbh is kind of avant-garde these days. From what I've read they are pretty humble about not being able to fool people, since they didn't expect people to figure out any of season 1 and they figured out absolutely everything.

>The whole "actually, that guy was a robot all the time!" thing works once, but once you are pulling this off all the time you are lowering the stakes for audience investment, people actually being robots all the time obfuscates the actual difference between humans and robots.

One of those reveals actually undercut a really great and subtle thematic development in season one about human perception vs robot surveillance. I'm talking about Stubbs being aware of the romantic connection between Bernard and Theresa, despite all the digital evidence being deleted. Small moment but the theme is totally invalidated when it turns out he was a robot all along.

>They were hinting at some darker things going on, with rich people wanting to live forever in the mind of hosts

They did develop this somewhat. The conclusion was just silly with why it didn't work. I thought that they did have some great existential material with the various eschatological views, like humans wanting transhumanism and some hosts wanting to escape to an afterlife, and Dolores wanting to escape/destroy the park. They didn't develop it enough though, and gave way too much time to goofy plot twists.

>There are still some good episodes

I agree, but the season as a whole was very weak. Shit, the episode focusing on Akecheta could have been a standalone short film, for how much of it happens prior to season 2's events.

>having robots tested by other robots who are controlled by other robots

That's explicitly commentary on the nature of AI today, and how machine learning works. Nolan refers to it in one of the after-the-show things they're doing now. It's an example of rehabilitating season 2 for me. The epic bacon plot twists of Bernard re-creating Dolores and vice versa reflect learning algorithms and the fact that humans don't really know what is happening under the hood with AI anymore. In the context of surveillance capitalism and big data, this is extremely relevant. A lot of people (me included) expect a big reveal this season to be that Rehoboam is actually a very "dumb" AI and its decisions are terrible but it's too stupid to realize it and humans have no idea how the AI works but trust it because reasons (probably the thing about the part of the brain that makes you believe in god). And even if Serac is part of Rehoboam, he's definitely physical rather than a projection. They made a point of having him shoot a guy in the last episode.

>I also heavily dislike what they're doing to Maeve, she is a great character and Thandie Newton is incredible to look at for her age, but they are giving her this stupid arc where she only wants to be reunited with her daughter in some form of digital heaven. This is stupid, if Maeve was really conscious she would know how the affection for her daughter was just a remnant from a former narrative, she comes over as a very rational voice of reason, so it's out of character to fall for that.

I'm not sure Maeve is actually that motivated by going to robot heaven. That works in one episode to get her to the Forge, but it turns out to be a ploy to get information from her. After that, she seems more interested in escaping her current predicament than being with her "daughter." She was willing to an hero before she was offered salvation, and seemed to me like she was more accepting of that as a means of escape more than reunion.
Also, a big point of her character is that she chooses to care about her connections to other people/hosts, unlike Dolores. Dolores is individualistic, using people instrumentally to her benefit. She softened on this after she drove Teddy to suicide and will probably change more after interacting with Caleb, the token good human. Maeve OTOH is constantly concerned about the others, even to a fault by letting the Shogun World hosts "freely" choose to stay in the park without really understanding the choice. This gets into a whole other thing, where it seems like they're making the major characters allegorical for major socialist tendencies (but that's a whole other post).
Caring about her daughter is one of her defining traits too. It's what causes her breakdown/transfer and her return to the park.

>Also, wouldn't that be like dying anyway? It would still all fade to black for me, right? Even though when there is now a copy of me.

GoT probably has the widest range in quality of any show ever. The drop was pretty smooth I'd say. Season 1 was consistently good with several GOAT scenes, but over time the average quality just kept going down. The material really doesn't suit adaptation. It gets too complicated. Too many plots intersect so you have to start cutting things for time. You can't maintain the coherent storytelling and themes when you change it around so much.

On a lighter note, Westworld mocked Dumb and Dumber in a cameo recently.

>This is the hobby board.

On a leftist website. Mindlessly "binging" on TV shows is not a hobby. Unless you also think laying on the ground motionless, drooling is also a hobby? Because the same level of thought is required to drool on the floor and watch TV shows, so why not just do the former and save yourself some money? You'd probably be better for it because your head wouldn't get filled with shit.

>Binging has no criteria for how long or how much time is spent.

Wanna state some other obvious things? No word has a strict "criteria" because their meaning depends on context. If I say "small elephant" and "small pencil", you don't actually think that both the elephant and the pencil are the same size – "small". I wouldn't be surprised if you did, honestly. So when you say "binge a TV show" everyone knows what "binge" means from the context. You trying to weasel out of it by claiming "binge" can mean anything isn't going to fly here you fucking post-modernist.

>And "productive" is a very easy and capitalist high horse you can climb up on to rage on others.

Oh is it? So I guess when Marx says
&lt"For labor, life activity, productive life itself, appears to man in the first place merely as a means of satisfying a need – the need to maintain physical existence. Yet the productive life is the life of the species. It is life-engendering life. The whole character of a species, its species-character, is contained in the character of its life activity; and free, conscious activity is man’s species-character. Life itself appears only as a means to life."

>Look at that stuff this dude wrote >>3535 Just because he is not earning a paycheck for writing that shit does that mean he is wasting his time?

HA! I got you now you fucking liberal. "Getting a paycheck" is not how you determine something worthy of pursuit, because then the person giving you that paycheck is the one deciding what is "wasted time" and what isn't, and why should that person have more of a say?

>Since according to your narrow definition of "productive" you are a hypocrite for posting here.

You don't even know my "definition of productive" or even if I have one, yet you project your liberal sensibilities onto me. And who says I come here to post to "waste time"? I enjoy arguing and putting retards like you in their place. It brings me joy, and helps me hone my own arguments and beliefs. I know why I do this, do you know why you "binge TV shows"?

>Everybody needs time off to do recreational activities.

Ah yes. LEISURE TIME. WE MUST ALL ENJOY LEISURE TIME. I'm gonna be physically ill.

But you don't say why you watch TV shows, either because you don't know, in which case you're an ignorant fool spewing bullshit on the internet, or you do know, but won't say, in which case you are a coward at best and wrecker at worst.

Say it. Voice your predicament.

YOU HAVE TO BINGE TV SHOWS BECAUSE THE CAPITALIST MODE OF PRODUCTION LEAVES YOU SO TIRED AND EMPTY THAT AFTER YOU HAVE EXERTED YOUR CREATIVE AND PRODUCTIVE POWER FOR THE PROFIT OF A CAPITALIST YOU ARE BUT AN EMPTY SHELL THAT CAN ONLY LAY ITSELF ON THE COUCH AND WATCH "ENTERTAINMENT" UNTIL YOU GO TO SLEEP AND RENEW THAT ENERGY WITH THE FOOD YOU HAVE EATEN SO THAT ONCE AGAIN YOU CAN SELL IT TO A CAPITALIST.

That is why you "binge watch TV". And the fact that you try to obscure this on a leftist board, only shows you for what you are: a reactionary wrecker.

>Some people choose movies and television. And some of us choose to discuss said movies & tv on forums. Deal with it, twat.

>every board and every thread can't be about organizing no matter how much you whine.

You have compartmentalised your life, like a good little worker-slave. Yes, let's keep the "just for fun" stuff away from the "serious" stuff. Are you even reading the shit you're writing? Where did I say "organising" is the only thing you can do?

I don't care what you do for enjoyment, but don't pretend that capitalist TV shows are something to discuss, except mentioned in a long list of things that "keep us down".

I'm not perfect either, I actually started the Star Trek thread. I can rationalise it and say I did it because Star Trek is more "leftist" than other shows, but that would be lying to myself, and it would be counter-productive. I know I did it because Star Trek is different to me than other TV shows because I watched it during my most formative years. But that only explains why I did something, not why I continue to do it. Writing these things to you helped me realise that some of my own actions did not contribute to my development and growth. Therefore, I can stop them. Sure I can rationalise further that I was talking about the liberal ideology in modern ST, or the dialectics in the old ST, but ultimately, I'm just discussing a TV show, a piece of pop culture. Yes, I wasted time on it, time I will never get back, but I won't continue wasting time on it, and that's an improvement in my eyes.

You, on the other hand, attempt to rationalise your behaviour because you are afraid of change. Leftism to you is basically the world as we have it now minus a few things. You want things to remain largely the same. I guess that's fine, but don't call yourself a leftist, you have many places on the internet where you can talk about TV shows with other liberals.

>whine

>keep crying in the puddle, cunt.
Look how you rationalise away criticism as "whining" and "crying". I guess when the worker says he wants more money he's also just whining or complaining? Now you will tell me how arguing that people shouldn't binge watch TV shows and arguing for better wages is not the same thing? Yet they both concern our immediate, material conditions. The worker's life would be different if he made more money and your life would be different if you didn't spend time watching and discussing a TV show.

>Calling everyone that disagrees with you a lib over A FUCKING TELLY thread is pants on head levels of retardedness.

I do agree with you that the terms "free time" and "work time" as opposites are nonsense. It makes people miserable.

But there's not a lot wrong with binge watching a show every now and then. Particularly if you can also critique and analyze its impact on society. I know TV is subpar compared to literature but that's more or less the same as being a literary critic. Both are fairly useless.

Also, binging doesn't necessarily mean that you'll stop being productive. You can waste only a couple of hours watching a show, instead of a whole day, and then go back to doing something better with your time.

Oh, and another thing. TV is just another medium. You can use any form of entertainment to do good or bad.

Its impact is the reproduction of the current social order as part of the superstructure. What's there more to say?

I don't have a problem with rape scenes per se. There's plenty of room to discuss how rape is portrayed, but there's nothing wrong with it in and of itself. One of the prerequisites IMO for handling it well is to acknowledge that what's being portrayed is rape. A lot of the discussion of the topic is based around people failing to understand what is and is not rape. Seems like it's easy to handwave something that's clearly rape as "magic sexy fun time" if the framing of the scene doesn't have SEX CRIME emblazoned on a marquee.

>>3680
>Mind control and all that potion shit is all r*pe too.
I agree.
>That episode where they killed babies and that asshole kid tortured those brothel girls was the last straw.
Maybe it's not for you, then. GoT is certainly flawed in how it portrays sensitive subjects, but the shock value does have a purpose (at least in earlier seasons), which is to combat the romanticizing of feudal society. Fantasy in particular tends to portray feudalism as idyllic, which it very much was not. The thing that really bothered me about this >>3673 is that GoT at least understands that rape is bad, and the complaints about it tend to stem from "it made me uncomfortable" (which it should - it's rape), while a rape scene that's not played for drama or shock is ignored. The complaint isn't about the subject matter; it's about being confronted as a viewer with the moral weight of the subject matter.

I think the bigger picture of this attitude is directly holding television back from making truly challenging art (that and the need to please the audience to make money).

 No.3702

>>3681
Rape scenes in GoT were mostly just gratuitous though. Like, it's that the writers/GRRM needs something horrible happen to a character, so he just has them raped. It barely influences their character development.

ASOIAF/GoT goes overboard with its grimdark shit sometimes. It's "hard fantasy" or whatever, because contrary to popular belief, people in the Middle Ages and under feudalism weren't monsters. Fucked up shit did happen, but things like rape and all that was looked down upon very much so. The only real fucked up shit happened during sieges. For example, what the crusaders did in Jerusalem when the first crusade concluded left an impression in the Islamic world. The memory of that bloodbath was one of their main incentives to get Jerusalem back.

 No.3703

As I said above, when things like LotR romanticizes feudalism, things like GoT or partly also the Witcher go into the complete opposite direction by romanticizing feudalism too, just in the opposite direction, Gothic Romance sort of thing.

>because contrary to popular belief, people in the Middle Ages and under feudalism weren't monsters.
Sure, but it counterbalances the narratives that only focus on the most upright and noble people. And ASOIAF/GoT has plenty of virtuous characters too. Part of the point is that they tend to lose because they're easier to predict and more fettered by a moral compass. Usually (especially toward the beginning) the series is deliberately contrasting idealized views with the Machiavellian reality of noble politics.

>>3703
Maybe romanticize is the wrong word. The point is they're portraying strife as a major part of the world, and suggesting that it's not a setting where you'd like to live. When the dominant view of feudal society is something like LotR, grimdark shit balances the genre as a whole.

 No.3716

>Usually (especially toward the beginning) the series is deliberately contrasting idealized views with the Machiavellian reality of noble politics.
GRRM, despite his liberalism, is certainly somewhat based in that regard ("I'd like to see Aragorn's tax policy and his policy on orcs as a minority"). I especially like book four, when they explore the suffering of the peasants and the smallfolk. Septon Meribald's speech is pretty amazing:
>Ser? My lady?” said Podrick. “Is a broken man an outlaw?” “More or less,” Brienne answered. Septon Meribald disagreed. “More less than more. There are many sorts of outlaws, just as there are many sorts of birds. A sandpiper and a sea eagle both have wings, but they are not the same. The singers love to sing of good men forced to go outside the law to fight some wicked lord, but most outlaws are more like this ravening Hound than they are the lightning lord. They are evil men, driven by greed, soured by malice, despising the gods and caring only for themselves. Broken men are more deserving of our pity, though they may be just as dangerous. Almost all are common-born, simple folk who had never been more than a mile from the house where they were born until the day some lord came round to take them off to war. Poorly shod and poorly clad, they march away beneath his banners, ofttimes with no better arms than a sickle or a sharpened hoe, or a maul they made themselves by lashing a stone to a stick with strips of hide. Brothers march with brothers, sons with fathers, friends with friends. They’ve heard the songs and stories, so they go off with eager hearts, dreaming of the wonders they will see, of the wealth and glory they will win. War seems a fine adventure, the greatest most of them will ever know. “Then they get a taste of battle. “For some, that one taste is enough to break them. Others go on for years, until they lose count of all the battles they have fought in, but even a man who has survived a hundred fights can break in his hundred-and-first. Brothers watch their brothers die, fathers lose their sons, friends see their friends trying to hold their entrails in after they’ve been gutted by an axe. “They see the lord who led them there cut down, and some other lord shouts that they are his now. They take a wound, and when that’s still half-healed they take another. There is never enough to eat, their shoes fall to pieces from the marching, their clothes are torn and rotting, and half of them are shitting in their breeches from drinking bad water. “If they want new boots or a warmer cloak or maybe a rusted iron halfhelm, they need to take them from a corpse, and before long they are stealing from the living too, from the smallfolk whose lands they’re fighting in, men very like the men they used to be. They slaughter their sheep and steal their chickens, and from there it’s just a short step to carrying off their daughters too. And one day they look around and realize all their friends and kin are gone, that they are fighting beside strangers beneath a banner that they hardly recognize. They don’t know where they are or how to get back home and the lord they’re fighting for does not know their names, yet here he comes, shouting for them to form up, to make a line with their spears and scythes and sharpened hoes, to stand their ground. And the knights come down on them, faceless men clad all in steel, and the iron thunder of their charge seems to fill the world… “And the man breaks. “He turns and runs, or crawls off afterward over the corpses of the slain, or steals away in the black of night, and he finds someplace to hide. All thought of home is gone by then, and kings and lords and gods mean less to him than a haunch of spoiled meat that will let him live another day, or a skin of bad wine that might drown his fear for a few hours. The broken man lives from day to day, from meal to meal, more beast than man. Lady Brienne is not wrong. In times like these, the traveler must beware of broken men, and fear them…but he should pity them as well.” When Meribald was finished a profound silence fell upon their little band. Brienne could hear the wind rustling through a clump of pussywillows, and farther off the faint cry of a loon. She could hear Dog panting softly as he loped along beside the septon and his donkey, tongue lolling from his mouth. The quiet stretched and stretched, until finally she said, “How old were you when they marched you off to war?” “Why, no older than your boy,” Meribald replied. “Too young for such, in truth, but my brothers were all going, and I would not be left behind. Willam said I could be his squire, though Will was no knight, only a potboy armed with a kitchen knife he’d stolen from the inn. He died upon the Stepstones, and never struck a blow. It was fever did for him, and for my brother Robin. Owen died from a mace that split his head apart, and his friend Jon Pox was hanged for rape.” “The War of the Ninepenny Kings?” asked Hyle Hunt. “So they called it, though I never saw a king, nor earned a penny. It was a war, though. That it was.”
In feudalism, despite the constant feuding and quarrelling, armies would actually seldom clash in a pitched battle: The stakes were too high. One loss in a battle and your entire reign would collapse and your house would be annexed. So often you had armies kind of playing cat-and-mouse for a while, trying to destroy the enemy's economy: That means, burning a bunch of villages and crops, then return home. The church always hated that, which is how we got week-long holidays, during those "peace times" feuding was forbidden.

How do people feel about The Witcher series? Liberals hyped it in extreme proportions, I've watched the first season and while it wasn't bad, it wasn't very remarkable either. The actors did a good job but this whole season felt like exposition/prologue to the actual story they want to tell.

I agree with this, A Feast for Crows is almost a fantastic book just by itself and the series as a whole is really a criticism of feudalism and a deconstruction of high fantasy tropes.
The grimdark rape and murder stuff is highly overblown. I think this is due to the popularity of the TV Show and the kind of marketing HBO used to sell it (this isn't your average pussy fantasy story!!!).
Ultimately I just kind of wish they had never adapted the books into a television series so the world at large wouldn't really know of ASOIAF and make presume what the series is like despite having never read it based out of their outrage towards the show, which is terrible.

It's not surprising that Dumb and Dumber struggled with putting Feast on television the most, they pretty much outright skipped it. Of course, it's harder to put on screen because it has a lot of travelogues, and more nuanced storylines with a lot of atmosphere, so I guess it flew right past them.

In ADwD I liked the Reek/Theon chapters, because the Boltons are GRRM's best villains imo. They pretty much failed on that delivery too in the show.

To be honest, I feel like GRRM doesn't really want to finish the story. He is tired of these characters and has entangled so many storylines now that it will be a clusterfuck to have the threads coming together (just look how much of a shitshow it was in the show) and his "gardener" approach has come to a dead end as I think he struggles how to end the story.

I cannot recommend F is for Family enough. It's the closest thing to a marxist tv series there is right now. Created by Bill Burr and Simpsons veteran Michael Price, based on the former's childhood in a 70s working class irish-american family, it explores the themes of working class consciousness and solidarity, as the father character is promoted to a middle management position at his airport baggage-handling job, having to choose between siding with his striking workmates, or act as a scab on behalf of the CEO and owner. Family life is realistically and humanely portrayed, as well as the adverse effect of economic hardship on interpersonal relationships.
I would also recommend Ramy, an interesting series about a second-generation religiously observant Egyptian immigrant, and the conflict between his quasi-secularized milieu and false consciousness-driven desire for authenticity. Has some idpol and postmodernist elements, but on the whole an engaging and interesting watch.

Fucking how? It was never about "technology bad". The episodes featuring technology do not put into the forefront and only speaks of the misuse of technology and over-exposure to it, especially under capitalism. Black Mirror has some unique ideas and has some old ideas, but the point was never that it was 100% original but that it was focused on dysptoic themes and thought-provoking material. Shock factor is an expected part of such a Cyberpunk-focused series

Also what makes Black Mirror so good is that it’s a cyberpunk aesthetic updated to fit cyberpunk actually crafted in the 2010s, Black Mirror is a proper cyberpunk story, whereas contemporary hard genre cyberpunk still imagines the future as imagined in the 80s, Black Mirror is more perfectly how we imagine the future might be now. Really the only issue with Black Mirror is that it arguably isn’t dark enough as the present and our own future trajectory is shaping up to create an even worse future than the one in Black Mirror.

Black Mirror is basic as shit and Charlie Brooker has zero understanding of the technologies he portrays. It's so bad at times it's unintentionally funny. At its very best the technology takes a backseat to the speculative fiction and it's more about the development of social systems. The "concerns" that are raised about technology are always completely retarded with no understanding of how and why things would be implemented in real life, and the social criticism is only better than this because humans have a history of profoundly stupid social construction.
>over-exposure to technology
What does this even mean?
>>5572
Black mirror feels more like alternate present or very near future than cyberpunk. Cyberpunk is generally set after ecological collapse, peak oil, and so on. Black mirror is maybe 5-10 years into the future where neoliberalism is still functional.

Reposting because people seem to be autists who can't use catalog:

The idea of ‘revolution’ and ‘revolutionaries’ put forward by Mr. Robot is ludicrous … In general, the series appears to have little interest, despite the references to inequality, in the conditions of wide layers of the population, much less any conception that masses of people will take part in the process of changing things. This is a ‘revolution’ carried out by (and presumably for) a layer of disgruntled computer engineers and other professionals.

The creators’ conceptions have led them from outrage to pessimism. It is no doubt true that a cyberattack like the one depicted in the first season would likely bring about little more than increased state repression. But insofar as the show creators continue to identify these actions with “revolution” while refusing to see an alternative, they end up condemning the entire notion of revolution itself. Taken at face value, the show depicts “revolution” as a cure worse than the disease, one that, at best, is the product of misguided naiveté; and at worst, inevitably leads one down the road of violence and treachery.

More than a few retrograde elements accompany all this, including the sympathetic portrayal of the FBI and an undercurrent of anti-Chinese chauvinism.

It's wish fulfillment for millennials who were radicalized by #OccupyWallStreet and The Arab Spring. Putting aside the hacking segments (which have been rightfully praised for their technical accuracy), I think the psychological aspects are the best of what the show has to offer. What social commentary exists was already quaint by the time Season 4 aired. It's gonna be a favorite for college students majoring in media studies for many years to come.

I think one aspect of Mr Robot that isn't talked about nearly enough is the subject of waning US hegemony and the dollar's collapse as the world's reserve currency. In the backdrop of the show, fsociety's 5/9 hack wipes out all debt records held by E Corp, and causes a global recession that accelerates the world's adoption of their digital currency, Ecoin. There's a proposed accord to cement this decision, with China's signature being the deciding factor. The main villain of the series is a time-obsessed, trans woman hacker who moonlights as China's Minister of State Security, and is the reason why E Corp's CEO has his job in the first place. She is also the head of Deus Group (a la Bilderberg) who is heavily investing in a secret project that has something to do with time. It is unclear why this project is so important to her, but it is later revealed in a flashback that she is traumatized by the suicide of a lover after witnessing her forced marriage. For some reason said project requires access to resources found only in the Congo, which somehow isn't possible without China's complete annexation of the region. The agreement goes through: nations adopt Ecoin as the world's reserve currency at the expense of Chinese annexation of the Congo.

This is never brought up again except to pigeonhole fsociety into a compromising position for seeking to undo their 5/9 hack. By Season 3, civil unrest is clearly broiling in America: E Corp's headquarters gets trashed by protestors and 71 of their datacenters get bombed by Chinese agents. I'm mentioning all of this because the very idea of revolution in America coming from "outside agitators" seems especially relevant now, but it's presented so uncritically here it begs the question as to what Sam Esmail was thinking. For him, "revolution" can only come in the form of some hyper-compartmentalized, neo-blanquist group. This sentiment remains unchanged into Season 4, where the remaining members of fsociety rob Deus Group of their Ecoin and proceed to anonymously, evenly redistribute all of their accumulated wealth into the digital wallets of the masses. Indeed, "the greatest redistribution of wealth in history" is literally depicted as a walk in the park. Worse yet, the main character's actions are explained away as being a product of his dissociative identity disorder. That's right, revolutionary thinking is a symptom of mental illness, and there's a more liberal, bourgeois person locked away deep in our minds stuck in an endless time loop.

There's practically no social commentary to speak of, though. What little exists is used to shed light on characters' individual struggles, of mind and will. Like S4E07 where it's revealed that Elliot was sexually abused by his father, and that Mr Robot was his coping mechanism is great television, but that tells the audience nothing with regards to the world he helped create. His "revolution" happened numerous times throughout the show, but the audience is taught to ignore it so much to the point when Sam Esmail does bring attention to it, it feels highly disingenuous.

Why? Because the immediate reaction to anything remotely criticizing say, the riots of BLM or the very liberal and feels-ridden Trans-rights shills, is immediately screamed at in a literal shitfest of "Ur a NAZEEEE!!!" with a side of half-baked takes based on glowfag propaganda.

So spoilers, obviously.

So basically, the superheros are created by a drug that was developed by the nazis and Paperclip'd into the US. Turns out an Uberfrau that the nazis created is masquerading as basically the literal embodiment of the "sexy" alt-right, doing a Lauren Southern trip. Oh and a part of her backstory is that she literally drops hints that she killed a black guy in the 1960s for no reason, she is really like sus towards the one black superhero, and she thinks white people should be all turned into superheroes so we can proclaim our racial identity.
A subplot is also that she is shagging the Superman/Captain America hybrid who is basically meant to be the personification of American Paleoconservatism, so there is literally a bit where American Conservativism Personified is fucking a Literal personification of Neonaziism.
Oh yeah, and the intro to an episode shows a Polcel being radicalised to kill a shop owners because of the media cycle.

The Homelander is portrayed so much better than in the comics, and the actor (Anthony Starr) really does a good job - I think he really just represents Bush-era Republicans, who are completely reactionary but are not even aware of it (sociopathic traits), completely corrupt and with a "ends justify the means" mentality, but are now in the present day slowly losing their mass base, and the fact that Homelander quite literally has to hook up with a Nazi to connect to a specific audience again is very much on point.

Also, Hughie is probably the most relatable working-class main character I've seen in a very long time. My only gripe with the show is that it portrays the CIA as fundamentally a moral organization, but I guess if you're putting a comic by Garth Ennis (huge military fag) on screen you'll eventually have hick-ups like this.

Yeah agree with this. Also tbh the fact that the store-shooter has a fucking Funkopop of Stormfront is a really nice detail.
As for the cuck porn thing, yeah that did feel forced but it kinda works with Lamplight being a real fucking depressed loser who turns into a coomer.
>Also, Hughie is probably the most relatable working-class main character I've seen in a very long time.
I legit had not considered that, heh,
Oh also, the satire about the !NOT Scientologists is a good nod at how celeb culture feeds into that shit, but like, feels like South Park/Bojack/[insert other political cartoon here] has already done it better.

There's not much of a take, KOTH is fundamentally a show about a conservative family dealing with liberal interlopers, often the show vindicates Hank's more conservative views. A good example is Bobby becoming a Husky model, Hank is against it from the get-go while Peggy (performing as the progressive in the show) is supportive, by the end of the episode Hank removes Bobby from a runway show at a mall (lol) seconds before highschoolers throw food at the fat kid models (also lol). Obviously Judge isn't the only influence on KOTH, but episodes he maintains direction over tend to emphasize this theme. There are also general themes of differing viewpoints coming together, Hank and bobby slowly understanding eachother, and the show is pretty favorable to John Redcorn and racism in general. It really is the best western animated show ever created, I absolutely love it.

Idiocracy is absolutely based on a conservative talking point, the premise is the world IQ is dropping (which is a talking point today) and that will lead to a regression of tech/civilization. I kind of hate Idiocracy tbh.

So it looks like the Expanse is heading for a catastrophe like GoT. They only got renewed for another season which will be the last season, while still having more than three books to cover. Plus the actor who plays Alex got #metoo'ed for unsolicited dick pics and harassing female fans, so he won't be returning.

They gonna have to wrap it up and we probably never going to see the Laconian Empire uniting all of humanity only to be taken down by our heroes which is supposed to be the great finale of the book series. Fucking shame after they spent an entire season four on this single planet with no outcome other than Murtry being arrested. It's considered one of the weakest books of the series yet they spent an entire season on this while still having so many books in front of them. What were they thinking? This is just poor planning.

The USSR is gone, so they can now reflect on the Reagan era with a relative ironic touch. 80s nostalgia is pretty big right now, check out movies like Summer of 84 or Stranger Things (although the latter turns rabidly anti-communist later) or the latest season of American Horror Story. Many of the writers in their 40s today had their childhood in the 80s so it may also be a bit of nostalgia. Many liberals also had their "radical phase" when they were young, and waves of anti-communism do target radlibs, hippies, punks, etc. - you can literally see it now with the Republicans calling Kamala Harris a "radical Marxist".

Also, I think the Reagan era before Gorbachev had a sense of impending doom, a surreal sense of gloom as well, which is what many feel today too. In 1983 there was almost a nuclear war, and Reagan was willing to escalate things again after the relatively calm 70s, and nobody thought that the USSR was going anywhere and collapse in on itself.

Reposting from the bunker:
I finished Black Mirror a while ago, let it sit for a while, and now I'll post about it. Coming through with a hot take right out the door: its actually not THAT bad. So, here's how I'll do it, I'll go over episode by episode. Since I don't recal the names, I'll think of new ones for my own little joke (haha).

SEASON I:

Episode I: The Phantom Cameron
So I hear that the first season was supposedly good. Well, this first episode sucked dick. Well, not the episode, more so the libshit Sorkinite "muh decency optigz" writter did. I'm sorry, but making your piece of shit, ruling class, privilaged shitter PM fuck a pig live on air is funny. But now, the show goes on a moralist fingerwagging crusade about how le decent public would never want to actually see it and even the perpetrator kills himself in shame. Dumb. Also why the hell is the PMs wife pissed? The guy did it to save a life. Pretty understandable and forgivable imo. Idk, maybe its more moralism about how its bad to do this cuz you'll make the guy sad.

Episode II: A big amount of Labour Vouchers with Burger characteristics
Here we have to discuss an elephant in the room. Black Mirror episodes dealing with dystopias all have stupid premises. So, like this one: its about a post scarecity society that uses a fully planned economy based on pure Labour Time, but oh, arbitrarily the artisan entertainers are a ruling class (a ruling class that still labours), and the lower class is arbitrarilly put in hellworld burgerland living spaces. And the answer is simple - the writers are dumb ass libs, who don't know what the hell they are talking about. So the episode that, in fact, is a great critique of capitalism if you don't think about it too much, just becomes a mess on closer inspection. But aside from that, the episode is, as I said, good as an anti-capitalist piece: it shows commodity fetishism, the trend towards all culture descending to the lowest trash possible, the ability of the system to recuperate anything culturally as well as pointing out the bourgoise as the villains.

Episode III: That one film where they switch their phones for dinner and find out each others secrets, Silicon Valley edition
As I said in the title, its basically like that film which name escapes me that I described. Its the same "oh, is the secret better left burried?" plot. However it does something else. It lays out great criticism of the current day social media, where everything stays up forever. That is not how humans should function. What you did, what you said, where you've been, all that shit should bever be perfectly saved for eternity. And this episode critiques it, which I like.

Season score: 4/10

SEASON II:

Episode I: Attack of the Clones
Think I stopped watching half way through and went on /leftypol/ instead. Bitch basic is AI real plot. Nice exploration on how its important for people to let go, though.

Episode II: Crime and Selfies
Seeing S1E2 made me think this will be another shitty premise dystopia episode, but no. This one was great. Think me and the writter are once again on different wibe zones as they, I think, wanted to horify you with the plot twist and show how its inhumane or something, while I found the premise pretty cool. Punishemnt isn't for the criminal, and it isn't for justice, but it is to keep people from commiting crime, a reminder what will happen to you. And in all honesty, white bear park is a great tool for pubishment. Its not a death sentance, which is good, and it is awful enough to be a great deterant, while also providing entertainment. Cool stuff.

Episode 3: What if Cockshott was Blue and said bad things?
Disgusting, awful, Sorkinite vomit. Nothing but pure bile thrown at the working class and populism in general, not to mention it shitting on direct democracy. Also it was not funny in the least. The fucking epic bear jokes sucked dick and were utter cringe. Burn in hell.

Episode IV: I also played SOMA
Good half of it is just the same old boring shit about AI rights. Guess its cool how the sextip guy workes as a person whose only job was to make people into commodities. Rest of that concept just feels as if they went "yea lets just throw in this scifi concept and thats the plot". But then there is the secondary plot with the eye thingies. Once again, dumb dystopia, as in you'd never have all people transition to that, but I like how it once again critiques technologies making things too easy, as here it shows the bad results of a hasty, emotional decision over silly shit that ruined many lives. Also lmao at the ending, nigga got shadowbanned. Peak first-worlder problem shit. RIP to all my homies who fell victim to the reddit gestapo.

Season score: 3/10

SEASON III:

Episode I: Karen Strikes Back
Continiueing the shadowban thing, an episode purely about first world middle class petty bougie problems. I like this one since the tech here is purely complimentary. I love how it takes the piss out of hyper online retards. The main character is basically a standin not just for normie ecelebs, but twitter cloudchasers and your agent Kochinski types. Fuck them all, and bless this episode for letting me laugh at their bungles.

Episode II: Cyberpunk Epilepsy Moment
Following from last one, it does the same good thing of keepig tech shit complimentary. Instead it focuses on personal, human issues. Mainly those of allienation from your family, your home. I liked it, kind of touching.

Episode III: What if trollface made you do crime?
Probably same as the Crime and Selfies one. I just don't feel bad for the "victims". Fuck them all. However, sure, vigilante shit is bad, and culminating in murder was a bit much. But I also feel this was, once again, the Sorkinite writers atacking online hacktivists, and fuck that.

Episode IV: Cyber Heaven is Cool
I didn't get it but I liked it. Maybe there was nothing to it intended, but can't shake kf the feel that maybe the writter was moral fagging about "muh souls". Anyway, it was fun to watch, had an absolutely lovely ending, heartwarming to be honest, good episode.

Episode V: What if US marines had feelings?
Once again, retarded concept for dystopia. Oh, so its a eugenicist purge by technocrats? Yea cool, they totally care and would totally let all infrastructure get fucked, as well as having barely deffective labour force be destroyed. That aside, it was an interesting concept. But as I said in the title, the funny shit to me is that actual marines wouldn't need their nightmare glasses - they would do that shit for fun.

Episode VI: Judge, Twitter and Executioner
I guess the writter liked the Cameron episode so much, that he decided to repeat it, now with ebin beez and none of the charm the first one had by using no scifi tech. Oh and this time the guy who is mad at the public being un-decent is the bad guy? Make up your mind.

Season score: 6/10

SEASON IV

Episode I: Terky goes off
Fun, lighthearted but still exciting to watch episode. Absolutely great. The concept is fun, the villain being an ego-maniac PMC is fun, I feel no sorrow for him getting an aneurism and just, hell, why can't more Black Mirror be like this or the Cyber Heaven episode?

Episode II: Attack Helicopter Parenting
I liked this one. Its a solid critique, but not of tech, but of the concept of helicopter parenting, that just used tech in this example. Not much more aside from that though.

Episode III: Karen strikes again
These last few episodes had a really good thing about them - they didn't really tackle some sort of supper massive "tech bad" apocalyptic shit, and they were all great for it, because, I believe, the writers can't handle that stuff. This episode gollows this formula again. Its a rather simple, tragic crime story. At best it tackles the topic of running from responsibility, but that is such a fifth grade ethics class topic it doesn't really count. Tech just plays a maguffin role, its ok.

Episode IV: Horny Games
Once again a fun, rather lighthearted episode. I think I started getting the writters vibezone at this point, since I called the plot twist of it being a dating app halfway through. Slight minus for it once again hitting the AI joint.

Episode V: Bezos makes you his bitch
Matt once talked on Cushvlog how allegedly the dogs were originally planned to be human controlled. I feel that was a missed opprotunity. Now its another one of those bad dystopia scenarios - oh no Amazon drones ran amock! I feel it would have been more interesting if the apocalypse was just some sort of regional collapse, but Amazon just didn't gave a shit and still protected their warehouse or some shit. Now its just Terminator. Tbh it was a cool episode, actually exciting etc. Not bad.

Episode VI: Mysteries at the Museum
Great, fun episode. All of the little stories were enjoyable. Once again overuse of the AI topic. I liked how they examined how misery it self would be commodified. Not much of a grand idea for the episode, and its better for it imo.

Season score: 9/10

SEASON V:

Episode I: DudeBro love
I… don't know what this was about. Like, ok, so when your homie looks a certain way you want to fuck them… so? I just don't see anything here. This feels like one of those idea episodes, but there is nothing, and it is also rather boring.

Episode II: I want to speak to the manager
An anti-phonesbad episode. The main character fucks up and starts searching for who to blame. I liked how the CEO was some retard hippie who fucked off from the business and started lifestyleism shit. Not much else.

Episode III: Mid 2000's kids movie
Literally the title. The only topic really is that parents should interact more with their kids and that management interferance is bad. Asside from that its some shitty Alvin and the Chipmunks clone where the evil aunt wants to steal the golden cow and its to this brave teen hero and her toy to stop it, and it even ends with a musical number. Tbh I have no clue how a show that started with a libtard deffending Cameron's honor ends up with this.

Season score: 2/10

Why do people think Black Mirror is bad in the first place? Is it just being edgy on the internet?

My personal impression is that its a word of mouth thing about the show only being "tech bad". However for the most part it isn't that.
However I believe the problem, at least the one I had, with the show is that it sometimes tries to take it self too seriously, or tries to cover a deep concept, or at least thinks it does so, and bungles it. Hence why I think the more "lets just do these little cool stories that have tech involved" episodes are the best, like Season III and IV.

I watched that stand alone Black Mirror film two days back so I think I'm ready to culminate my little review of the series. So, without further ado…
Black Mirror: Obunglersnatch
First, I think I should state that I obviously watched a pirated 90min "packed" version. And to be honest I believe this made for a better experiance. Because in the end I think the "Choose your own story" is inherintly more entertainment than art. Also the fact that YOU are responsible screws up the story, as I believe here it works better when observed from the side.
So next question. What is the film actually about. I offer three possibilities. I'll present them in terms of likelyness.
1st. Its another Black Mirror meh tier shit of "wot if your Netflix was real peepo?". Its just more of the same, correct, but at this point just boring, comodification of man and missery. However, there is more than that. Themes that don't connect and details that point to something more.
2nd. Its a tortured artist story, how pressure, management, trauma fuck up a man, and, eventually, make him stare at the abyss and being noticed back. This leads to the confrontation of ones free will, or more precisely, the lack there of. However this is unacceptable to the artist. He MUST be controlled, he can't just not have free will naturally, right? And this leads, eventually, to insanity, letting the voices, ones uncontrolled ID for the lack of a better term, take the vengeance and desire it wants. But there is still more. Something stays the same in all the insane, paranoid fantasies - the fathers room.
3rd. Its all MKUltra. I love this twist. It makes sense, there is enough to see it coming, its a topic that is woefully underused. It makes sense as well. The guy was literally fed LSD and other test drugs daily for entire childhood. His life is a fucking lie, put together from missremembered false memories. And of course he goes mental eventually, especially when he finds the truth. All his insane alternate paths, all other possibilities - just retroactive false memories trying to recontextualize the truth. Yes, he has no free will - not just in the actual philosophical sense, but in his basic life.
So, in the end. Obunglersnatch… its great! Its interesting, it makes sense, it has layers, its fun to watch along and its deffinetly not just "le epic exsperimental film for vuewer choice". Probably the best the series was outside the insane trekie episode.bolshevikBolshevik

Was it rly that explicitly anti-communist beyond Erica's stupid jabs? It seems more Russophobic than anti-communist. You have to keep in mind when S3 was being produced Russiagate was at its height. Take for instance the town mayor of Hawkins "Larry" who is in league with the Russians. His campaign signs look a lot like Trump's. The show seems to have subtle political messaging but nothing too concrete.

Almost everyone who enjoys western cartoons does. "90's cartoons" isn't just nostalgia, it was the renaissance before the digital industrial age started creeping in. Now anything that isn't pastel flat line-art all the way down is increasingly rare.
I should start looking at the indie scene more, like when animation studios get to make their own projects instead of commissioned work. Pic related; Boulder Media has a few short films. They did work on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, The Amazing World of Gumball (Season 1 only) and Wander Over Yonder (Season 2) before being acquired by Hasbro.

Those CN City ones were made by Animal Logic (Happy Feet, Lego Film, plus lots of 3D work for many famous films like The Matrix, Planet of the Apes, The Great Gatsby) so it's not some shitty hack. You'll notice the team at Animal Logic actually used season 1-like models for each show instead of the economized versions they tend to devolve into.

It's funny how Sons of Anarchy devotes so much time to meetings. And the motorcycle gang is the de facto police force in Charming at the beginning of the show, which really is not very anarchist considering they are a private club and not accountable to regular people. They do fight feds all the time and usually win in the end, and cops other than the one small town captain america wannabe are shown to be utterly corrupt verging on demonic.

It gets progressively stupider as it goes on though, FX gave Kurt Sutter way too much leeway to do whatever he wanted with it so the last season(s) have a bunch of extra-long episodes that waste time on nonsense instead of resolving the story.

I love that show, It feels like a unique sitcom.
Lois is the most REDpilled character on the show. She constantly shows disdain for pigs and reminds their kids about the difference between rich and poor.

My favourite episode so far is the one where the family gets stuck in traffic in the desert and dewey rides around town after his babysitter dies.

Anyone seen A Very British Coup? One of the most poignant, realistic and left-sympathizing dramas I've seen, clocking in at only about 145mins. Tells the story of a sort of British Chavez being elected at the dawn of the '90s, and all of the domestic and geopolitical implications that brings. Highly, highly recommended.

I really do love just how unapolagetically left-wing it is. Especially the last dialogue with Sir Percey. Its so weird especially knowing this was made in '88, but this would NEVER fly today.

What do you all make of the ending though? Did the election got cancelled by a military coup? Seems kind of hard to believe knowing how unsuspecting Perkins is and that no one arrested him, and that the news report is only reporting on "the yesterdays anouncment" as the second topic of the day.

Agreed on all points. I find it hard to imagine how this show would come over to someone who doesn't really have much knowledge of the nefarious role the intelligence services and - particularly in Britain - the civil service play in forcefully maintaining the status quo. Likewise the Americans' insistence on keeping military bases open and maintaining Britain's NATO membership presupposes a knowledge about the iron fist behind the invisible hand of American hegemony.

>What do you all make of the ending though? Did the election got cancelled by a military coup?

Yes, I believe so. From the sound of choppers flying around, to the announcement of "an end to the weeks of political unrest" to the intelligence services and the army watching menacingly as Harry delivers his final speech. It's the logical last resort after regular ol' blackmail, sabotage and smear campaigns didn't work, and rings true to many a real-world left-wing (but non-revolutionary) government.

>How many popular shows recently do self inserts? I know Gravity Falls is (hence the weak ending), but I didn't know Regular show was.
Depends on how tight your definition of a self-insert is.
For example, in The Amazing World of Gumball, Richard, Nicole and Anais are named after Ben Bocquelet's family (similarly to all the Simpsons except Bart being named after Matt Groening's family). I don't know if that would qualify. Danny Antonucci considers Ed, Edd and Eddy all parts of his personality, but I don't think that would count either. It would have to go beyond mere inspiration.
I say Regular Show with confidence because Mordecai is basically J G Quintel just using his normal voice with a bit of extra emotion. Commentary for The Power extremely-related. Plus Mordecai is an awkward art-school grad which I suspect is either JG or an exaggeration of him.

HAHAHA HOLY SHIT I just remembered. I haven't watched the new Powerpuff Girls (2016) which is apparently an atrocity, but it's believed that this guy, this crazy motherfucker, managed to self-insert himself as a romantic ship for a kindergartner.

Very hilarious. If you like video games or It's Always Sunny I think you'll like it. Rob McElenhy plays more of a Dennis than a Mack in it. I like that Ash is getting a career because I used to watch Hey Ash Watcha Playin back in the day. They kind of gave her a straight-man part in this one so she's kind of underutilized but I still thought it was cool she's in it. Cricket from It's Always Sunny is also hilarious as another eternal victim kind of character. I'd say he's kind of the second lead? Australian Asian lady is pretty good but also kind of another straight woman part. The fat White lady and the old writer guy and the Indian guy from community are also funny but they're mostly gag characters who show up, do a bit, but don't typically have much a plotline in the episodes. Black braids chick is the most under-charecterized, not much to say about her, she's like Ash but even more of a straight man.

 No.16008

>>16007
Thinking about it more, problem is too big a cast and too many straight men. Especially since they seem too afraid to make the women characters farcical enough. Really only the fat white woman is hitting the mark but she's only a gag character. Kind of like Dee In It's Always Sunny, but they made her funnier over the seasons. They should probably bump up the gag characters and deprecate the redundant straight men female characters. Fat chick and Indian guy have the funny sociopath angle going on like Rob, and Old guy has the Abe Simpson thing going. The other three women are kind of pointless and I dunno how they can really turn their characters around based on what they've already done. Australian Asian lady has some really funny moments as a foil but not enough.

That bit is one of the funniest in the whole show in my opinion.

Lois is based and I've seen many people on the internet with the most retarded takes on her. That because she's authoritarian and screams a lot, she's a "sociopath" or a "psychopath" and hates her children. But if you're not a dumbass you'll realize as you grow up that she's doing her best to raise them into decent people, as decent as they can be, despite her horrendous upbringing. She's able to overcome that out of her love for her boys (and maybe also resentment towards her own mother).

Hey friend! Yes I did watch the first episode, though I'm considering a rewatch. Anyhow to address you're and general points. I'm not sure we're supposed to like the TVA. For that matter Loki wasnt really supposed to be likeable until about Thor Ragnarok. About the erasing. I suspect maybe they're not straight killing people they don't like but perhaps resetting them to their OG timeline. Also, they did a bad job of addressing the Avengers transgressions. They mentioned the Avengers were supposed to have time traveled. Also, a friend told me since they put their infinity stones back, thus ensuring the proper flow of time they broke no time laws. About Loki and destiny etc, I like that the show is like loosely tackling the subjectivity of moral quandaries. But, personally I'm hoping these renegade Lokis aren't actually Loki's and maybe like Mephisto or something.

And they get to appeal to the small subsection of traditionalists also if they do this. Fucking corporate bastards think they're so clever.

Yep. I watched. The plots a little wonky. I just dont really get how variants work and it wasnt totally clear what Lady Loki did at the end. I believe she sent the charges to TVA to create fractures in time but it wasn't that clear. Yeah it's kinda weird Lady Loki is blonde i too like dark haired women better. Though, the lady Loki from the comics you're talking about I believe is actually Lady Sif with Loki's mind inside her. Comics, ikr?

Well it sucks that they're going to have to abridge the last season, but hopefully the season is good and that will be enough. It's like Akira movie vs the books.

I fucking love this show man

It rejects the individualistic, selfish Lokis and promotes the Loki to become a communal member and learn to trust and help each other.
Just because he is the god of outcasts doesn't mean he has to be alone. I relate so much.

The show is about change and how it is never too late to change your ways and evolve and that everybody deserves a chance to do so. I can't remember the last MCU media that had such a lefty message.

I hate the cunt that is the chief of the TVA, fucking absolute annoying lib. Muh institution, Muh stability, Muh authority figures must be protected!!!1

Yeah this was a great episode. Honestly some of the best MCU content in a while. I've been a life long marvel enjoyer but never cared for Loki. But since Ragnarok and this show he's evolved into less of sniveling, conniving bad buy and into a far more down to earth being just trying to get this shit together. Also I'm the same annon that said I wasn't sure pruned=death. So, called it. As for Kang he's the only logical orchestrator of this all. He's supposedly confirmed to be the villain in Ant-man 3 which makes perfect sense since Ant-man's been fucking with time too and his lineage as a marvel character has always been an omnipotent autocrat that exist outside of time.

I seem to remember some disney guy somewhere saying the Defenders would show up in the Avengers movies. I guess they thought GOTG was more important. Oh well maybe the Defenders or something similar will get rebooted on hulu or D+ or something.

I'm sure the military entertainment complex has its claws in MCU like it does everything. But I'm not positive the show tries to do anything political. I mean it can't be easy to sneak politics into a show about demi gods fighting of a multiversal war to preserve a singular timeline.

>How do you think he is stronger than the infinity stones

I do hope we get less goofy versions of Kang. I want the more bellicose versions of him to be cold, stern and scary. As for the stones I guess they aint shit to him since like the show said he was still authoring all of time up until Slyvie kills him.

In that specific case, there were a collection of archived CN Flash games that had all their main assets (game files like code and images) self-contained, but a few were unable to launch. Sometimes they're site-locked (which is why BlueMaxima's Flashpoint has a fake browser included, to trick certain games into thinking they're at home) but this one was just not working. It loaded the loading screen and instructions, but then pressing 'start' did nothing.

When you have compiled code, you can decompile it, a process called reverse engineering. This is how game/software piracy is usually done, decoding part of the binary program back into comprehendable code (manually or automatically) and modifying it. Luckily for me, there are a lot of decent open-source decompiler programs for Flash .sfws so instead of literally messing with 1s and 0s, it will translate the file it into a readable code and show you each of the buttons, images, sounds, frames, with its scripts, animations, etc. You just lose all the comments (and in many cases, meaningful variable names), so "playerHeight = currentHeight + yVelocity" becomes "var1 = var5 + var7", but there are ways you can deduce the purpose of those mystery variables. Like if it checks if var1 < 1 to see if it triggers the "You Lose" animation, var1 is probably the number of lives left. It's like sudoku, the more gaps you complete, the easier it becomes to find the rest (unless you got them wrong). Fortunately, I think Flash games preserve some of the variable names, which made it much easier.

After tracing where the path the code takes after pressing start, it turns out the game was expecting to load an XML file with basic settings (time limit, lives, how many levels there were, is the character dead), but when you clicked start without it, these settings were unknown and the game wouldn't proceed. I just hardcoded some sane default settings (like not being dead when you start the game) and it worked without any issues.

In most real cases, it's harder than this. I've met people who reverse engineer ransomware to see if there are any mistakes in it that can be used to stop it, or to try and discover which group made it. At that stage, you might even find counter-forensic techniques trying to hinder reverse engineering.piratePirate

Honestly the best example I've ever seen of a writer going "yo so I wanna go to point C in the story which is super awsome but I am stuck at A, uhh… yeah fuck it lets just pull off a dozen deus ex machinas, each more shitty and dumb than the last to do it, who cares about the middle of the story anyway?"

Holy fuck, did you guys see the Season 5 finale of Rick and Morty?

 No.19990

I'm on mr robot's season 3 and it's unbelievably annoying how Elliot and some characters are trying to undo their whole anti capitalist act. If the show ends up with them undoing the damage they done to Evil corp, I'm going to pronounce this the shittiest show of all time.

just watched squid game on netflix. people in debt need money and rich porkies make them play children's game, except you die when you lose. one interesting twist is that the players can vote to stop the game if they vote majority, but it nulls all the billions of money they could get. in the first episode they successfully vote to leave the game after seeing the horrors. however, because theyre all so deep in debt, they return to their game of their own "free will". there's subtle copaganda, especially in the ending where the main antagonist tries to show the protagonist that nobody will help the homeless dude on the street, and at the last minute a cop shows up to help. funnily enough, i thought they were gonna arrest the homeless dude in a twist, but it's implied they "help" the homeless person. it's a weird ending especially when it shows the participants learning to value this morality through their own experiences after witnessing the violence they must do for the sake of money but overall it's a show that wants to prove that people will do the right thing.

I finished watching it too, I considered it a bit classpilled because as you say the people that designed and keep that fucked up game are extremely rich porkies that just want to make poor people suffer for pure fun, literally because they're bored and they see poor people like cattle or more precisely horses that they can bet on, it's also heavily implied that those porkies are actually the guys the game participants are in debt to, as in they make people poor and indebted on purpose to get participants for the game

It's also interesting to know that there were very defined and clear hierachies among the employees, as in lower rank soldiers can't even talk without the permission of their superior, it's a literal class pyramid with the VIP porkies on top.they were able to mantain the game running and with employees willing to kill people using pure economic power

also idk if it was unintentional or not but that the fate of the pakistani immigrant worker who spoke korean was sad b/c the guy who betrayed him was not able to fulfill his promise to take care of his family. it sort of makes sense in that life and death situation to only think of your family, but it seemed realistic unfortunately

this thread is cool like a branched off timeline

i've been posting on my alternate version of this thread on the other place

i bet there's a philosophical term for this
you cut off an organism into two and they both grow into different beings

are there any shows that explore such ideas?

Thoughts on Narcos?
I just finished the last season, and I don't really know what to think. I mean, it's entertaining and all but it is not exactly "redpilled" eye-opening in any way. Although I feel like the latest season did a better job at pointing the finger at the US and talking about some of the general structures behind it all instead of just going with the ol' explanation of the ungovernable banana republics and failed states and yada yada. But then again, what can you expect from a Netflix show mainly told from the POV of the gringo narcs? I suppose there's just always gonna be an innate hint of something reactionary in most, if not all, cop/crime tv series and movies - although I do enjoy that shit. Call it a guilty pleasure, if you like.
I guess at the end of the day it is "just" entertainment and not everything has to correspond to our values or world views for it to be enjoyable.
The subplot with the cop in Juárez was probably my favorite part, btw.

 No.21215

has anyone else watched picrel, "the longest day in chang'an"? it's about cops and terrorists in the tang dynasty
I liked it, but found the "medieval sci-fi" elements like the crude oil bombs a bit too much, and the way the cops consult the capital-C Card Index is also pretty obviously be supposed to be commentary on surveillance rather than something plausible in the setting
oh yeah, and the romance subplots were sort of forced

Its been a while since I've watched it but it didnt make much sense to me. I liked when he killed the pimp, I guess this made him feel like he could be a vigilante and save America from corruption or something.
Also the whole premise is totally inaccurate. White people never drove taxis

Oh wait, that was the end of movie.
First he attempted to assassinate a politician, considering he was a Vietnam vet who did the whole "Mohawk suicide mission" bit and just ran away probably says something about traditional masculinity or something. The pimp shootout was like his second plan, wasnt well thought out, and everyone clapped and loved him. If he had went through with his previous plans, he would have a bigger impact on the world as a whole, but would be lampooned by the media and thrown to wolves in prison.
Something about masculinity as a veneer and means to an end to his inner fantasies of being accepted by people he doesnt even know.
Scorsese is very familiar with themes of masculinity, I should probably watch it again

 No.21259

>>21255
>>21254
I don't think it's about masculinity really, I feel that's looking too deeply into the intent. The failures of his plans and their messiness is a depiction of reality, vigilantism isn't clean or usually very successful.

Except it was sucessful, in the end he was "heralded as a hero, avoided a prison sentence, and received a letter of thanks from the loli's dad, everything he could hope for in his fantasies

I thought I got the link from leftypol but cant find it
I watched a chinese tv show on youtube, "Minning Town", with english subtitle, about their poverty reduction program, where you basically follow a village over 10 years. Pretty good, doesnt shy away from showing the hardship and various problems, while still maintaining that hopeful note, and some very likeable characters.

NTA but: The original Bebop is nothing like the Liv Action. As for amazing, it's not, it's just pretty commonly known that live-action anime adaptations are shit and so people don't usually start a series from them.

The plot he's talking about is taken straight from the anime. Spike is a bounty hunter like Dog The Bounty Hunter.

Where I think they did go over the top is having him straight up execute people. That's a pretty grim choice for a hero, especially since they're not trying to play it that way. It's just like "of course the hero of our story would execute a man he has captive!" "What's dark about that?"

I'm watching RN, cringiest thing so far in the show was BLACKMALE by far.
