i really wish people in the tvd/to fandom would stop stanning any character who comes under criticism. Instead of mindlessly defending and “loving” a character how about you actually listen to the arguments against the character and look at the character’s actual storyline and how he or she is portrayed? You most certainly do not love the character if you accept everything about the character and believe you are somehow superior to the people who dislike this character.
I really wish people watching both the vampire diaries and the originals would stop claiming they hate julie plec while condoning everything she writes by giving both shows ratings.
It still annoys me how people continue to generalize specific fandoms. Well i’m sorry if the only reason you can fathom for people not wanting to watch a spin off plagiarizing multiple shows is that they must obsessive shippers. good job on the terrible judgment, you must be so proud of yourselves.
It’s funny how people criticize the vampire diaries for being based on ships and fanservice but watch the originals and claim it’s an original serious drama. based on its short run, the originals has yet to come up with any original storylines and yet viewers are shipping everything.
OH WAIT WHAT’S THAT? two characters in the same room. Shipping it! it’s so otp even though it has more problematic and abusive aspects than the ships i criticized on the vampire diaries.
But I suppose the “mature” viewers of the Originals are watching because of the better writers. Never mind.
Petition for people to livestream the next episode of the originals if they want to watch it. I just think that if a majority of viewers dislike the show then actually show the producers that bad writing can only be endured for so long. This is not hate, if i wanted to post hate about this show there’s nothing stopping me. It’s just tiresome seeing so many people being convinced to watch and blog about the show they clearly aren’t the biggest fans of. the show won’t improve if it retains the same number of viewers. the ratings need to decline for CW to make necessary changes. at the moment, the show is currently about an explainable loophole pregnancy, a former villain who cries 95% of the time onscreen, terrible influences for young girls watching it, and hypocritical characters attempting to disguise themselves as loyal and decent. And of course racism and misogyny is the foundation that it’s built upon. again, this is not hate. It’s just a brief reiteration of the writing flaws pointed out by many others, and these flaws are still present yet ignored by the fandom. Please stop ignoring the problems. You’re encouraging the writers to ignore the writing problems, therefore you’re encouraging them to not do their job properly. When someone provides a service, the consumer (in this case the viewers) doesn’t expect to be insulted by other consumers for disliking bad service. And that’s what the fandom has been doing. they’ve been insulting viewers who rightfully criticize the show. the show has been basically spitting in viewers’ faces and it’s not held liable for bad service. Don’t watch the next episode live or if you must watch it then live stream the episode online. also don’t watch on hulu.
