I’ve been rewatching the Walking Dead lately on Netflix. It was a great show the first few seasons, then it became excruciatingly slow-moving with just barely enough action to keep me watching. I stopped watching altogether around season 7 or 8, so I’m now rewatching to see how it ended. I now remember why I quit watching. It’s one of the 1000+ shows nowadays that must prove its “art” and hipness by telling the story out of chronological order. Leave show at cliffhanger, now rewind, fast-forward, return to cliffhanger, rewind again, now go into hyperspace, cue the dream sequence, now do a whole episode of some character having hallucinations, and so on. Wait, we need our Emmy nomination, so put in some scenes unrelated to the plot as filler–let’s see, a gay sex scene so our unwoke viewers know gay people have sex, oh, and delay the cliffhanger with some flashbacks to characters that died 3+ seasons ago. So brilliant! So original! So cutting edge!!!! 🙄
I know this is intellectual art that we hick rubes are too stupid to understand, but isn’t it bad enough we have to put up with nonstop woke preaching in every form of entertainment nowadays? Can’t we just once watch a typical sequential story that builds suspense with climaxes, allowing us to escape from our daily lives and simply be entertained?!
The owner of Bud Light (AB InBev), the mainstread media, and most of the corporate world are all still in shock at how much sales and the Bud brand have suffered from a small transgender ad campaign. In isolation, yes, it would indeed be an overreaction. In a normal world, I doubt it would have even been noticed or cared about by beer drinkers. The ferocious reaction is a result of so much more….it is the dam bursting from years of Woke culture being shoved down our throats in virtually EVERYTHING we see in our daily lives — movies, TV, comedy, streaming series, education, “news” media, PC corporate policies, sports social justice rants, advertising, divisive politicians, and on and on. People are sick of it! And that includes much of the Left, who often believe the nonstop PC wokeness bombardment distracts from the issues they really care about. The backlash is a message — enough already! I, like 90% percent of people out there, don’t give a sh*t how people live their lives. Let me live mine without being preached to every waking hour!
