I'm not a hater, I'm sure its a Good show for its audience, but being on tumblr during the peak of supernatural is the exact reason why I never seem to get into it. Too much fandom. Idk why. Was underwhelmed when I finally watched some episodes. And idk why but the prettier brother’s oddly deepish voice threw me off.
Seriously, I never see this, yet everyone complains about it.
I have literally never seen people complain about a villainous character acting villainous except second-hand “concerned parent” types.
Or what kind of evil, like Dr.Light going from silly supervillain to “the rape guy”.
I keep seeing this and wondering if its a strawman argument.
I myself have only been angry when villainous actions are ignored for a rushed reformation arc that sweeps the harm they have done under the rug. ESPECIALLY when they hammered in for the longest time with gratuitous gore or destruction for shock value previously
Only by being extremely cautious and scared and at times embarrassed myself throughout my childhood and teenage years have I been able to avoid seeing horrible videos that would have traumatized me. I have known that I'm sensitive to gore/blood since I was little, and while I as a small child happened to not escape - TW for descriptions of gorey things beyond this line - various movies with gore, cartoons with gore, games with gore, gifs (before the term gif was being used) with gore, that made me so unsettled I thought about them for weeks or months and gave me lasting effects, I HAVE managed to escape seeing some actual really fucked up things that other kids my age were looking at, f.ex the "surprise" style videos of baby chickens getting "made into chicken nuggets" is one I remember avoiding as a young teen among others, and appearently other kids were indeed making eachother watch real life videos of mutilation and animal abuse. I'm so thankful for myself that I had the guts to.. be scared of things and let myself avoid things that I didn't want to see. The people I hung out with were not like me, they enjoyed gore. The question could be asked, would I have become hardened by being put through it, or would I have been broken down? I remember when I was 7-9ish and had mistaken a horror movie for a detective show, and watched a scene that stuck in my mind for what felt like months. I was constantly nauseous and I remember adults getting agitated with me for not being able to be happy and talking about what bothered me too much. Was I protecting myself or was I making myself sensitive? Was I supposed to see worse things as a child, or would it damage me to unknown extents? Personally I feel that I would rather live without seeing what some others saw. And I'm scared for the generations younger than me. Will they get hardened or will they get damaged? How do we know
When Jane finally begged the professor to not take away all of her Teaching Assistantships as a way for this disgression, her mom accidentally leaves a drunken voicemail to this professor, on her phone, describing this man in the vilest terms, especially after he had actually decided that Jane’s track record was good enough to let her continue teaching.
the moments of grief on this show are just emotionally stunning like. these people are going crazy over the loss and there’s nothing to do but scream and lose all semblance of composure, and I can’t look away when it happens it’s just. riveting. devastating. overwhelming.

nomadland!!! i knew it was gonna be good but i didn’t expect to connect deeply to it, but it ended up really striking a chord with me. reminded me how much i appreciate films that don’t need intense conflicts to drive an emotional story
