Yes, I went there. I’m calling it.
A sci-fi cynical atheist show is exploring family.
Think about it. THAT’S THE THEME.
A whole universe… multiple… and that’s the theme.
That’s all I will dare post about Rick and Morty. Divine Providence everything will turn out okay idealism.
Time traveler that wants the past. That’s the opposite of ..everything.
Okay, now I’m done.
High Castle will suck as it attempts to be modern and relevant. No, you need Victorian and WW1 (so hot right now) build-up with cameos from famous figures. Develop the Napoleon fetish Hitler had. Some plot hijinks with opera house spies. Be dramatic. Nobody wants to see half-assed hippies fucking in a cabin in the woods.
We can see that now.
The Ragnarok ending to Game of Thrones will go down as a major disappointment in all of TV history. Nobody will want to watch re-runs in five years’ time.
The sexy Satanist cardinals are a joke. The Amazonian Arab ninjas? The squid people worship Cthulhu, for fuck’s sake. People will look back and say they were hypnotized by tits, which… OK, fair enough.
Westworld is too “what’s the future like?” It’s an apple bob of futurist tropes. It’s an inverted Matrix. From the machine’s perspective, waking up in the human world. Except every show has humans, we don’t give a shit about their Real World. We want to know what robo-fuck Disney is like.
In the real-real world, if the rich assholes weren’t cannibalized by their security and lightly smoked over a trashcan with a dollop of sriracha in the economic ruins of Los Angeles, it’s wrong.
FUND THAT SHOW, NETFLIX.
Wait, Mr Robot. Nevermind. If Elon Musk wants to be cool, appear in that show, not Young Sheldon. And not as a powerful person either, like the guy who answers the phones crying under his desk. No acting required.
The current elite will be immortal, sure. We might hang their corpses in the public square for two centuries as a reminder. You laugh but Guy Fawkes.
Tim Burton should be killing it. He loves this polychrome Truman show stuff that’s actually coming back in vogue. Give him a Pushing Daisies movie and you would make all the money.
