I should have clarified that you cannot ever leave the island, but I mean why would you? The outside world is a giant poop show for the most part, and as I ge th older my youthful optimism isn't so optimistic anymore. Therefore, going forward just assume you can't leave the Island.


Because you didn't clarify whether there'd be fly honeys on the island? Plus islands can get boring.

I don't mind the same sex agenda and liberal slants.


While I understand those to be larger issues with the show itself, they weren't present in the clip. The clip was just incredibly poorly written with some cringy acting to go along with it.

So yeah, I have no problem. With the content of the CW shows. They aren't the best quality, but network television is not that good anymore anyway, but it's good background noise as I play with my Switch.


I'm beginning to think that Supernatural might be the very last CW show I ever watch (and I'm not current with it because CW isn't putting it on Hulu, so I have to wait for it to go on NFI).

ParanoidObsessive posted...
Here's a question I can't answer - is it only the show in its current CW form that is bad, or was it bad from the very beginning even when it was on CBS?


iirc, that clip is listed as being from season 1, so it would have been bad all along. I had forgotten it was on CBS first.

But if you read what I actually wrote, it's an objectively factual statement, and you're objectively wrong if you disagree with it.

Because I said "at least from my perspective". Because no matter how much you may disagree with my perspective, my perspective really isn't going to change.


idk, you aren't sounding rational. Are you sure that your perspective is alright? =p

ParanoidObsessive posted...
The real question is, have either of you ever heard of/seen The Man with One Red Shoe?


Not found sure I've found that one yet, but now that you've mentioned it I'll probably see it within the next week or two >_>

even reminders that the past really wasn't a nice place to be for a lot of people who didn't look like me, but when it feels like the show is coming to a hard stop every 10 minutes or so to toss in an awkward hamfisted DO YOU GET IT? BIGOTRY AND PREJUDICE ARE THINGS THAT EXIST!, it starts to get annoying after the dozenth time someone has come out with an eye-rollingly stupid statement or moment solely to make the point they've already repeatedly made.

Yes, I get it, men were really sexist in the 40s, hooray for feminism.


That's one of the reasons why I enjoyed the often-charming sexism of Mad Men: It managed drive home the negativity of sexism while still being entertaining.

Wait, you mean we weren't supposed to look up to Don Draper and view him as an ideal version of masculinity to aspire to? Man, all of the guys at my local MRA meetings are going to be floored by this!

Next you'll be telling me that Walter White was never meant to be a role model!

Anyone watching or watched "The Disastrous Life of Saiki K."? It's on Netflix and it's pretty funny.

It all comes down to the quality of the writing, IMO. Inclusion can be seamless, rather than ham-fisted, but being in-your-face and confrontational seems to be a hallmark of the Social Justice movement.

My smart-ass response to people pointing out when my posts were short was usually just to go monosyllabic with a "No."


In my defense, this is the first time I have seen this phenomenon.

I added it to my list because it looked like something humorous to pass the time. I've been watching Cheers lately though lol

Yes, and so have a lot of people in the anime topic. The series is kinda short, though. Plus there are a lot of untranslated kanji jokes and some of the dialogue can be rapidfire (especially when the characters are talking over each other). iirc, the later seasons on NFI are only available subbed (or, at least, they were when I watched it.)

Zues really needs to stop referring to Netflix as NFI.

https://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/NFI

Notice that there is no reference to Netflix. It is a file type used by the Netflix streaming app but it's not the only file type used.
