2020.09.17 23:20 Papaya_Exciting Do you think the concept of Casa Amor is problematic? Do you think Casa Amor should change?

I'm currently watching Mercades's interview on After the Island and I haven't made up my mind about any of this, but I do think it's pretty clear that the Casa Amor contestants are generally the most sexualized contestants that appear on the show. This season's Casa Amor really rubbed me the wrong way because of the way the girls have described feeling like they were "strippers on a bachelor party" or "playthings." I also felt that way while watching, and noticed how the vibe in the villa and the vibe in Casa Amor were complete opposites.
Contestants come on the show and need to turn someone's head to make it into the villa and sex appeal is probably the easiest way to do that. It's also clearly not the only way people get in, for example, Kaz (UK S4) and Ovie (S5) and Molly (S6) seemed like they were picked not only because they were attractive, but also because they were able to form a strong enough connection with people in the villa.
Do you think the power dynamic that Casa Amor creates inherently breeds an environment that encourages bad behavior (from both contestants and viewers)? If so, do you think that there's anything that production should change about it? Was this just an issue because it was the first US season to have Casa Amor?
I've seen several UK seasons but never seen one that gave me the same bachelor party vibes that this one did. I feel bad for the Casa Amor contestants in general because they're rarely as liked as the original contestants since they're barely shown and they're introduced as people that need to compete with existing islanders.
Haven't clearly made up my mind about anything, just curious about what you all thought about everything :) Can't wait for tonight's episode!

2020.09.15 19:50 monet-star07 Caleb doesn’t really like Justine?

So even after last nights episode with their date, people still think that Caleb is playing Justine. I watched Murad Merali’s video of the Casa Amor Recoupling and he was saying that he still doesn’t have the best feeling about Caleb bc of the past LI couples (Yewande and Danny) and many people think he is going to pull a “Greg” and just take the money, so he is using Justine bc she is the most liked by America. But i started thinking how would he know if she was the most liked. Alex from LI Season 1 said that they have to stay in a hotel for 2 weeks prior to going to the villa without their phone before going into love island (they have a “babysitter basically”) and this year they obviously have do a 2 weeks quarantine probably without their phone. Calvin and Caleb entered the Villa Day 5 which means they were quarantined at the same time the OGs were. So Caleb wouldn’t really know how much Justine was liked by America. People also say he isn’t genuine because he didn’t choose her for the date and then when Rachel and Kiersten stopped talking to him he went to Justine. It’s love island and we didn’t even see the full date. also the parts we did see both of the girls basically talked about how they were in a great couple and its love island so pursuing your options is suppose to happen. its not like he told Justine a week later that he wanted to get to know her, he told her legit the next day. People also say that he is really into Kierstan but after their conversations when he first came in the villa, we never saw them together again. Justine and Caleb were still getting to know other people which is probably why they didn’t choose each other during the recoupling. 
In the interview with Rachel and one with Tre they both said that Caleb and Justine talked a lot. Rachel said she felt like she was in a Thruple bc they would talk on the other side of the room then come and talk on her bed. During Vegas night you could see Justine and Caleb in the background talking. Now its coming out that at Casa Amor he made sure that they knew he was going back to Justine. They all said they talked to him and got to know him and he still went back to Justine. he did say he didn’t want to like Justine just bc she was the only girl he was attracted to in the Villa. a lot of people are also saying that he didn’t offer her to move in 1. its been like 2 weeks but if they wanna work on the outside they obviously have to talk about that, 2. he from Oklahoma and she from Jersey so duh and 3. she never said she was moving in she said once the relationship gets strong enough she it wouldn’t be a problem. But anyways, I was a little iffy at first but after last nights episode and seeing ex- islanders talking about how genuine he was I do think he is starting to actually like her. Plus CBS is messy so if he was playing her and told someone it would have been aired🤷🏾‍♀️

2020.09.13 17:30 albinobunny91 It seems like they drag out the Casa Amor segment?

Is it me, or does it feel like this Casa Amor stuff just won't end?
Usually it feels like it's maybe 3-4 episodes, but this has been gone on and on! And I don't even care about the outcome anymore, because now I'm used to it. It's not shocking anymore.
Could it be, because this season is so short? But in that case, even more of a reason to shorten CA down, so more people can come in.

2020.09.09 07:13 Amatahara On The Reaction To Mercades

Listen I get it, she's aggressive, openly sexual and going after Johnny (A.K.A: one half of the current top power couple), but ya'll need to quit this shit about her looks and calling her a homewreckesleazy/cringey/gross. She's been on screen for less than half an hour and she's doing the same shit that Kirsten, MacKenzie, Lauren, and others have done before her just in this season. Just two episodes ago we were all going fucking ham about how hot Kirsten was when she was grinding and twerking during the slide challenge, but Mercades licking creme off a guy is too much?
I mean calling her a "bargain bin Cely", ugly, and desperate as if going all in and getting to the villa wasn't THE EXACT reason they're in CASA AMORE (you know the place where bombshells do ~anything~ to turn loyal couples heads).
Christ y'all please take a step back and examine ya'll-selves.
Just had to get that off my chest.

2020.09.09 04:21 Calinks I don't know what's wrong with me, I'm disappointed in damn near all the Casa Amor people.

I'm just watching the episode now so maybe they will stir things up but I feel like they really dropped the ball by not bringing in enough serious bombshells into both Casa Amor's. Of course, everyone on this show is attractive, not being a beauty snob here and I don't have 10 percent of the looks these people have lol.

Just saying, I am used to seeing nukes dropped into Casa Amor, guys and gals that will push the right buttons. The people they have brought in don't seem like serious competition. Maybe I'm wrong, I have watched the damn episode itself but to my eye, I don't see many of these people causing a stir.

Maybe I just think people from the UK are way more attractive or something lol, I don't know but there are always some big movers brought in on those seasons. The closest thing we have gotten to a bombshell this season is Lauren and she stirred things up. I was hoping for a lot more of that.
My taste are not the taste of the castmates though so as long as these new people cause some real drama and make hard choices happen, I'll be happy.

2020.09.07 23:01 Coldcoffees Pre WWE RAW Discussion Thread! - September 7th, 2020: Labor Day RAW!

Welcome everyone, to Monday Night RAW!


RAW Preview

By Cageside Seats because WWE.com doesn't have one today for some reason.
The Headliner(s)
As of Monday morning, WWE hasn’t released much information about the Labor Day edition of Raw. They’re asking if anyone can stop Randy Orton ahead of the Clash of Champions rematch with WWE champion Drew McIntyre he just earned by pinning Seth Rollins last Monday, but that seems like an odd question given we just saw the Viper take loses at the last two PPVs. Sure, they’re referring to the punts that put McIntyre in the local medical facility two weeks ago and not getting beat by the champ and Keith Lee - but still. What do they think Randy is, RETRIBUTION or something?
That lack of information, and the fact that in putting out two events over the last three weeks WWE’s given us reason to examine & re-examine everything about their shows, did make one thing clear. Raw would benefit greatly from a reshuffling of its roster.
Lee’s arrival helped, and The Limitless One could be Rollins’ new dance partner with Rey Mysterio out. But especially on the men’s side of things, it feels like we’re watching many of the same feuds we’ve watched since WrestleMania. It shouldn’t take personnel changes to transition out of stories, but that looks like what it might take to get them to stop booking matches between Angel Garza & Andrade and Street Profits for the latter’s Raw Tag titles.
Fortunately, everyone from the dirt sheets to Triple H has said a WWE Draft/Superstar Shake-up is coming this fall.
New match-ups will only take us so far. We’ll probably tire of a Big E/MVP program if they run it for six months, just like we did the Apollo/Crews MVP one. But once we get to the end of the year, it’s Royal Rumble season. The Road to WrestleMania gives new motivation to old rivalries, and voila, we’re through another year of the longest running weekly episodic television show in history.
Pass some time thinking about who you’d like to see move from NXT and SmackDown to Raw while we run through the rest of the red brand’s affairs.
The title scene
From the way last Monday played out, it looks like Raw Women’s Champ Asuka’s next challenger could be Mickie James or Natalya. Either would make for a good one PPV program while the newly solo Peyton Royce is built up... or while we wait for one of the four women in the new WWE Women’s Tag title championship program to refocus on singles glory. Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Liv Morgan or Ruby Riott would all make logical opponents for the Empress.
If I were new United States titleholder Bobby Lashley, I’d stick to Raw Underground. The Hurt Business always gets to be badasses in Shane McMahon’s worked shoot lair. When MVP, Lashley & Shelton Benjamin are upstairs, they take losses. Down below, they dominate the same guys.
He’s got his baby back! Here’s hoping R-Truth’s 39th run as 24/7 champion is a long one.
Other stuff to keep an eye on
  • Mentioned them briefly in the top section, but we may have actually seen some development with RETRIBUTION last week. The rabble-rousers broke up the tornado tag between long-time rivals Montez Ford, Angelo Dawkins, Andrade, Garza. They beat-up a game Zelina Vega, but may have sparred Angel’s amore Demi Burnett. Hmmm...
  • In addition to business being good for The Hurt Business, Raw Underground was also good for Riddick Moss and MMA Horsewomen Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir last week. It was not good at all for the heartbroken Billie Kay.
  • One-eyed man Aleister Black continued to target Kevin Owens, costing KO a chance at a Clash of Champions title shot. If I were Black, I’d want a piece of Rollins. But I am looking forward to KO vs. Aleister when they give us an actual match.
  • Are we finally about to see Dominik Mysterio work with someone other than Seth?
Three weeks until Clash of Champions!
What are you looking forward to on Raw tonight?

2020.09.06 22:05 yousing65 Casa Amor on Monday? (Predictions from first look not spoiler)

The first look has been released on the app and based on how Love Island UK does things, this feels like the kind of episode that comes before Casa Amor.
My Reasons:
1) This episode is the glow/neon themed night where Arabella and Tom got dumped in S5 UK. This may mean nothing because it's not consistent across all seasons or may mean producers are copying S5 UK's format.
2) Tonight is the dumping where the girls in the top 3 couples pick a guy to be dumped and the guys in the top 3 couples pick a girl to be dumped. This form of dumping always happens before Casa Amor in the UK seasons.
3) This season is shorter than UK and if Love Island is supposed to finish by the end of September, this probably the right time for it.
I love casa Amor so I'm excited and hoping that it starts tomorrow or at least by Tuesday!

2020.08.27 17:55 AlsoIHaveAGroupon What are your favorite shows that are completely forgotten?

With the end of Corporate last night, nobody apparently cared, and probably no one ever really will. I thought the show was hilarious, dark, and occasionally all-too-real. But for whatever reason, it never caught on. And Comedy Central hides their shows on their own website, behind a cable login wall (that doesn't even include all the major cable providers), so it's doomed to be forgotten.
And it got me thinking about others. I'm not talking about the usual list of overlooked shows (Firefly, Terriers, Deadwood, Party Down, Pushing Daisies, Better Off Ted), or even the deeper cuts from those lists (Wonderfalls, Bored to Death, Moral Orel), though those are all great. I'm talking about the shows that are either completely forgotten or that were never well known to begin with.
Difficulty:
Some examples:
Big Time in Hollywood, FL (2015, Comedy Central) - Two twenty-something aspiring filmmakers are about to get kicked out of their parents' house with no money. Jobs would distract them from making their (terrible) movies, so they come up with a plan to tell their parents they got mixed up with a drug dealer and need money to pay them off. That goes terribly wrong, and they end up at various points mixed up with real drug dealers, on the run from the cops, covered in blood, making a movie with a monkey. This was from the same people who made the hilarious youtube series Next Time on Lonny (which has vanished from the internet, as far as I can tell), and has the same sense of humor. It ran a full season and stands on its own just fine, but I'm still amazed that no one was watching. Streamable: Comedy Central, but I think everything after the first episode needs a cable login, or you can buy individual episodes wherever you buy those things
The Lost Room (2006, Syfy) - Technically a miniseries that would have been turned into a full series if it was a success (like Battlestar Galactica had done before), this only lasted three 90 minute episodes (which it looks like they've now broken down into six 45 minute episodes). It was about a cop (Peter Krause) chasing a set of seemingly random objects with supernatural powers (Warehouse 13 would eventually do a lighter take on a similar concept). There's a lot of mythology that never gets explored, but it was a good ride while it lasted. Streamable: On Amazon Prime but leaving soon, and individual episodes available for purchase.
Line of Fire (2003, ABC) - A series that showed both sides of a "war on crime" effort between an FBI office and an organized crime outfit. David Paymer is an odd casting choice for a mob boss, but somehow it worked. This was Rod Lurie's show before he created Commander-in-Chief, where he made headlines for getting fired and the show going from biggest new hit of the fall to cancelled after season 1 in his absence. Streamable: Nowhere by subscription or for purchase that I can find, some episodes are on youtube
The Inside (2005, Fox) - Keeping secret from her colleagues that she was the victim of a violent crime as a child, a new FBI Agent (Rachel Nichols) joins a unit pursuing violent criminals. But her amoral boss (Peter Coyote) knows her secret, and exploits her experience to get inside the heads of the criminals they're after. This one premiered a few months before Criminal Minds, and I thought it was the better show, but clearly audiences thought otherwise. Streamable Nowhere by subscription or for purchase that I can find, some episodes are on youtube
And there are tons more I miss and no one ever talks about them. Jeremiah. Jon Benjamin Has a Van, The Loop, The Riches, The Middleman, Kings, Michael & Michael Have Issues, Almost Human, Help Me Help You.

2020.08.03 03:24 soulsides L'Immortale...a few thoughts (spoilers)

This is an addendum to my previous post about S1-4 of Gomorrah
The surprise that Ciro isn't dead would have been more impactful had I not already whipped through S3 and S4 in a literal matter of days this past week and therefore, it never settled in for me that he was gone. I could imagine it'd be a much bigger surprise if you had watched S3 in real time and went through S4 still assuming he was dead only to discover at the end of 2019: psyche! They don't call him the immortal for nothing it would seem.
Does it feel a little Hollywood to bring him back from the dead? Yeah, sure. I agree with people that it seems like a cop out but at the risk of being cynical, Ciro is the series' main character (1a to Genny's 1b) and Marco D'Amore, from what I gather, is extremely popular and has a lot of influence within the series, having directed several episodes of the show and more importantly, directed and co-wrote L'Immortale. The odds that he was going to permanently exit the show was always unlikely and frankly, I think S4 partly suffered for Ciro's absence (though that season had a lot of problems on its own, independent of Ciro being, apparently, stuck in Latvia the whole time).
Ultimately, as I'm already feeling like the series ran on fumes in S4, I'm totally fine with Ciro being miraculously back in action for S5. Again, I wholly agree with fans who feel like this cheapens S3 but at this point, my expectations for the show are low enough where I'm like "ok, whatever, sure."
*L'Immortale" was...ok. Like others have noted, it felt more like a super-sized couple of episodes from the regular series vs. A Movie Event. The scale of it didn't feel particularly cinematic and both the flashback and present-day storylines also felt rather small stakes.
I didn't find the Adventures of Young Ciro to be that compelling. I never watched Gomorrah and thought "I wonder how Ciro grew up as an orphan." I just didn't need his backstory, least of all four seasons deep into the series. In contrast, I would have gladly watched a movie or series about the rise of the modern Camorra, where we follow the machinations of the younger versions of The Wizard, The Saint, Don Aniello and Pietro Savastano. Who knows...maybe that's what a future series could be though the production costs for such a period piece would be sizeable. The vintage Italian sports cars would be sick though!).
The Latvian Adventures of Old Ciro was...ok but the problem is that we already saw him go through something similar at the beginning of S3 during his ill-fated Year In Bulgaria. The movie was more fleshed out but at its core, it's still the basic idea: how does Ciro come to terms with his sins and grow from it? His actions in Latvia weren't that fundamentally different from any number of things he did during S3.
On that note, I do appreciate that the writers - least of all D'Amore himself - haven't given Ciro some kind of magic arc where he's now a hero of sorts. However the series ends, he won't find true peace, let alone happiness. But they do want to show that Ciro has grown through his self-inflected wounds which is what made his sacrifice at the end of S3 so meaningful...and why Genny's abandonment of his "lemme go legit" ambitions by the end of S4 so doubly tragic. (Now that I think about it, I'm even more pissed at S4).
Latvia was another way of showing that Ciro has learned from his past. He's not a good man but there's some compassion within him that allows the viewer to continue to be invested in his arc.
As for the end scene...first of all, it's not clear why Don Aniello is dead. That needed more context for me. And much as I like fan service, I didn't need to see Genny and Ciro reunited here. I would have much preferred to see Ciro show up in S5 out of nowhere and surprise Genny but whatever. It's done. Bring on S5 now.

2020.08.02 09:58 jibramango Season 3 Casa Amor

Lol this was pretty awesome for being the first season to introduce this but they are dumping people left and right. They just finished recoupling after Casa Amor and then two episodes later there’s another dumping and basically eliminated four out of the five Casa Amor people. I feel so bad cuz they barely made an impact compared to season 4 and 5.

2020.08.02 03:47 soulsides Just finished bingeing S1-4...a few thoughts

Quick context: I watched the original movie years ago. I knew about the series, heard decent stuff about it, but I found the movie so bleak that an entire series didn't feel that compelling.
But then I watched ZeroZeroZero, realized it was the same author behind both, and figured "well, Saviano certainly has an idea for detail, let's give Gomorrah a shot." I basically ripped through all four seasons in the past week or so and whistle. That was a helluva ride.
Coming from an American POV, Gomorrah is only vaguely comparable to shows here like The Wire, Sopranos or Breaking Bad. By far, the biggest difference is that Gomorrah doesn't have a classic protagonist or even anti-hero that conforms of American narrative tropes. Sure, someone like Tony Soprano and Walter White do some Truly Awful Shit but nothing that rises to the revolving door of (take your pick): fratricide, patricide, murdering civilian women and men (including kids), pregnant women, etc. Gomorrah, as I assume Saviano intended, is relentless in how it portrays the utter amorality of its main characters in their pursuit of powecontrol.
The first two seasons were excellent in setting up the chess pieces and letting us into how the game played out in all its sprawling complexity. I can't say I always understood some of the key plot points (nitpicks below) but if the goal was to take you inside the rat's nest of the Camorra...bravo, it did that.
Season 3 is where the wheels began to slip off and Season 4 just ended up being a disappointing slog. The fundamental problem as I see it is that Gomorrah ran out of storylines and instead, has been forced to recycle the basic tensions and relationships. I'm not trying to be snarky here but imagine a drinking game with any of the following storylines meaning you have to down a shot:
  • Family disagreements that then test family loyalties that then turn to lethal betrayals.
  • Alliances made and then broken.
  • People double or triple-crossing one another.
  • People rising to power only to lose it
You'd be very drunk, if not alcohol poisoned, by the end of a single episode, let alone entire season.
(This is to say nothing of scenes we see over and over, i.e. clandestine meetings between rival clan members or montages of drug production and/or dealing or people warily eyeing one another but opting not to use words to actually express thoughts)
I don't doubt that this is probably how things actually go in The System. The nature of how their organization works doesn't exactly promote long-term stability.
The problem though is that a good television series has to be able to move the viewer somewhere new and the nature of Gomorrah is that as chaotic as its world may be, it's also stuck in a viscous cycle where people's "poisoned" nature prevents them from advancing anywhere truly meaningful. The key characters can't leave Secondigliano or their underworld life behind. The end of S4 makes this point bluntly clear: the life is a prison of its own and no one - including us as the viewer - is allowed to leave it.
I admire, at least, in S3 the attempt to put some new players and settings into the fold by going into central Naples and broadening the world-building to include all this new cast of characters with (literally) colorful names: Blue Blood, Crazy, The Wizard, etc. And even though some of the core storylines made absolutely no sense to me (again, see my nitpicks below), it was still a fun ride to see Ciro and Genarro teaming up together again with Ciro trying to be a mentor a version of his younger self. I also enjoyed seeing Patrizia's ability to play all sides while concealing her own agenda. Frankly, had the show simply ended with S3, I would have been fine with it.
Alas, they gave us S4 which, right now at least, is where they jumped the shark, hard.
  • None of the new players were very compelling, least of all the Levantes whose family may have been twice as large as the Savastanos but they didn't even have half the charisma. Seriously, Lady Imma's outfits were more interesting than anyone in that entire clan.
  • Genny's attempt to go legit was doomed to fail. You know why? Because in every gangster story ever told, where someone tries to go legit, it ends in failure.
  • They already took one of the most potentially interesting characters from S3 out of the picture last season: The Wizard. I mean, that dude supposedly helped create the modern Camorra. We couldn't have had a few more scenes with him explaining how they set this whole System up?
  • Instead, we're stuck with Enzo's crew, who basically spend all of S4 taking one L after another, and Crazy and The Graduate who don't seem remotely convincing as a bosses. I'm pretty sure Malammore could have single-handedly wiped the brothers and their entire clan out.
  • Worst of all, they did Patrizia dirty on every level after patiently evolving her character in S2 and S3. First, they saddled her with a love interest no one was asking for and with whom she had no perceptible chemistry with. (This isn't a problem unique to her; the only couple I thought exuded actual relationship vibes was Pietro and Imma, perhaps because both are older, presumably more experienced actors.) Then they have her stuck in yet another plotline involving someone's family plotting against them. Then they get her pregnant, one of the laziest of all storylines. And in the end, what was it all for? Was she a victim of her own hubris? No. A master of her own fate who goes out in blaze of glory? Definitely not. A way to get Genny back into the game? Well, more or less, yes but for what exact reason again?
  • The one part I thought was truly new was the episode in London where Genny gets ripped off for a cool $20M by those grifters...until the grifters turned out to be pretty stupid too.
    S5 is delayed because of COVID but one can take some basic guesses at what the storylines will be given that two Levante brothers are still out there, The Graduate and Enzo are still out there, Genny is back (for...reasons?) and his wife is going to be very mad at him. The obvious wild card is whether Ciro will be back (I haven't watched The Immortal yet but plan to soon) but even if he is, I'm just assuming that somehow, someway, he and Genny will end up having to be on opposite ends from one another and if S5 is the final season, one or both of them will likely end up dead in the end, probably by each other's hand.
I mean, I'll still watch it of course. I just hope they can find a way to breath some new life into the show. And to be fair: most similar TV series like this also overstayed their welcome by at least 1-2 seasons. There's nothing particularly unique about the storytelling problems facing Gomorrah.
Ok, nitpicks from across the seasons:
  • Genny trying to get over on his FIL was inexplicably stupid. #1, he's your FIL. #2, you know he's connected to all kinds of powerful cliques. #3, he's your fucking father in law that doesn't yet have beef with you or his daughter. There's no way that doesn't end badly.
  • Why wouldn't Gege have gone back to Genny and said "your FIL knows what's up and he's threatening my family"? Him betraying Genny didn't make sense.
  • I'm not really certain what the point of Valerio's storyline was. They seemed to have a hard time pinning down who his character was supposed to be.
  • If you've just ripped off an Italian mob boss for $20M in gold...maybe you should leave town immediately vs. chilling at the crib?
  • Ciro's entire plan in S1 was just...not a good one. Also, they should have kept Comte around longer.
  • Also poor planning: Genny having Enzo's sister killed. There's gotta be better ways to go around sowing discord and dissension. I dunno, maybe Ciro and Genny are just really terrible strategists.
  • Bringing back Lady Annalisa in S3 didn't serve her character nor did her return really serve the plot. God knows the show could use more compelling female characters but she really was largely pointless in S3.
  • Lastly, why is Genny back doing gangster shit again? Because of the prosecutor? Because Patrizia got arrested? Maybe I missed some key explanations for his actions at the end there.
    Ok, thanks for putting up with this mini review/rant. Looking forward to watching The Immortal now.

2020.07.30 02:04 the_c0nstable The United Federation of Planets is perhaps the best setting in all of science fiction.

On the recommendation of u/Inignot12 and u/MrJim911 I am posting an argument I made here about what I like about the Federation and by extension its hopeful future.
This will be long, but I wanted to share one of the things I love most about Star Trek. With Star Trek Discovery Season 3 soon to drop, I wanted to take a moment and appreciate and explore just how unique and hopeful the United Federation of Planets is. Outside of some examples from literary science fiction, I can't think of many other works that look at humanity today say, "we're going to do better than that, and we can do that, because it's in our nature" and then imagine a world unequivocally improved on ours in every way.
Briefly for context, it is far more common in sf to imagine the future as a place where the powerful forever force their boot on the necks' of the powerless. I don't even have to list them, you all know these stories by name; they're often taught in English classes as saying something truthful about our future: a warning of the dark heart at the rotten core of human nature. Even if these fictional futures aren't run by post-apocalyptic warlords or fascistic empires, they're at the best immensely corrupt "democracies" (or overrun with malevolent amoral megacorporations) with out-of-touch bureaucrats making distant decisions at the expense of their free people, injustices often ignored, covered-up, or perpetrated.
So what does the Federation accomplish that is often treated as so routine and treated as matter-of-fact by its citizens (unless they're talking to outsiders) that you might not even notice during the course of a typical episode?
The Federation however, like all systems, is imperfect. It makes mistakes. The Maquis would likely disagree with many of the benefits I laid out. However, few of Star Trek's heroes would disagree with the philosophical core of their ire. On the contrary, it's often incumbent on the protagonists and individuals to hold the Federation accountable and demand it be better - that's true in each series thus far. It's that challenge and scrutiny that ensure that the Federation avoids the darker impulses inherent to systems and remains on the side of justice.
Why is this valuable? I think fiction has the potential to inspire us and can warp reality around it if enough people believe in it. I think a lot of sf assumes the worst in people, and people watch or read it, shake their heads in disappointment and disgust, and think "humans truly are the real monsters." This in turn leads people to cynical inaction, or accepting the injustices of systems as natural. The Federation boldly proclaims the opposite; that people are mostly decent, and thoughtful, humane policies and systems can direct or embolden that decency. It in turn says something truthful about humanity that often gets overlooked; People are, for the most part, pretty good and try to do the right thing. This is mirrored in the antagonists; the "enemies" of the Federation tend to be systems full of individuals convinced they are doing the right thing.
And we've seen Trek inspire people before. It's good for us to see characters living out positive lives in as just a system that can be conjured as possible, in the same way that it's good that we see them use technology in helpful, non-detrimental ways. Trek makes the case that technology can cure all disease, automate labor, be our friends, and make people's lives better. In turn, people have been inspired to develop technology to improve lives in ways that are routine for us now. I think the Federation is that same aspirational goal, in the form of systems. There's no reason for it to serve any less of a blueprint than the communicator was in inspiring the cell phone.
Is it realistic? I think studies suggest as much. There are real world theoretical policies that mirror what the Federation does. A Universal Basic Income is reminiscent of the Federation's lack of currency and providing for its citizens' every need. People don't starve because there isn't enough food, they starve because the system is unable to allocate enough food to them. The same is true of housing; in the USA, there are more empty homes than homeless people. That's a failure in allocation. Ensure that people are housed and that they have the basic income to feed and clothe themselves (studies show people use the houses as a base to find work and the excess income to improve their lives either materially or mentally), and you're well on your way to a civilization of happy, well-adjusted, boring nerds like in the TNG era.
So yeah, it's really cool we have this and that it's prospered in the public consciousness. That tons of creators and writers over several decades decided to collaboratively construct this future society. It's also just really cool that, for a genre so commonly fearful of making contact with alien civilizations, the future in Star Trek is one where humans (a species of social animals) use their main strength - being friendly - and venture forth to go out and make friends with thousands of alien species. It also shows us that part of the human adventure is building and crafting this world we can believe in; a Federation that each of us can contribute to every day.
TL;DR The Federation is a beacon of hope for us in the real world. If we can follow its example, we could make realistic strides in improving the quality of life for all people.

2020.07.29 18:28 lordnastrond Buffy - what would you change?

Buffy is currently being re-run on TV in my country, and I am really enjoying it (its been a few years).
However, recently I have a bit of a habit when watching something where I say to myself "If I was the directowriter I would...." and have been doing that with Buffy (the blasphemy! I know!)
And I was wondering if you could go back in time and change something about the show - what would you do? There is no need to limit yourself to just one change.
For example: I would make The Watcher's Council not the Initiative the villain of Season 4. I think Buffy "quitting" the Council at the end of Season 3 nicely sets this up, the Council is presented as amoral enough to "remove" un-cooperative Slayers (I really doubt Buffy is the first), this would tie the season arc more thoroughly to the Faith waking up episodes as well as the appearance of the First Slayer in the season finale. I also think this would provide a villain more tied to the Slayer mythology, give the Council a chance to appear as the powerful, dangerous and intelligent faction they are described as, allow the writers to explore the history of the Slayer a bit more in the shows run, would provide Giles (and Wesley in Angel) more of an arc and would tie into Buffy's "growing up" arc.

2020.07.28 17:49 AtheistComic Infinity Dawn s01e01 Re-Release

Description:

The Dexter series is known for being at times one of the best dramatic series to have aired... but at its worst, the series died very early on due to changes in the way the story was presented. Showtime kept ramping up the campy feeling of the series, when in fact it deserved a much darker flavour.
Dexter lead Michael C. Hall said, when asked about the series finale:
"Liked it? I don’t think I even watched it. I thought it was narratively satisfying — but it was not so savory. I think the show had lost a certain amount of torque. Just inherently because of how long we’d done it, because of the storytelling capital we’d spent, because our writers may have been gassed... Maybe some people wanted a more satisfying -- maybe they wanted a happy ending for him, either a happy ending or a more definitive sense of closure." [sic]
This is essentially actor-speak for: "The show was so badly fucked, that by the time we finally finished, it had left a bad taste in my mouth."
Well. I loved season one and two. And season four. They were remarkable and sensible, for the most part. It was a mistake to have Dexter constantly narrating. It was a mistake to have him weakened utterly by Rita and the kids. So these elements are not going to be in this project.
We learn early on that Dexter is a total badass motherfucker in a geek costume. Like Superman, but without the moral dogma. And without kryptonite... well at least in this series the way they portrayed him -- his kryptonite was his family with Rita. And that's why this fanedit will attempt to remove Rita and her kids from the story. It's kind of an experiment. I'm not sure at this point how it will work out. So far it's great but I'm only on episode one and still editing through the first four episodes which will probably make up the first couple of releases.

Intended Changes:

2020.07.21 02:48 apologetically-yours Hitting a wall in season 2

I’m on episode 29 (about where Tom is thinking of leaving) and I just have lost interest. Usually I speed through the seasons, watching almost non-stop, but I am having a tough time with this one. I think it’s because I really don’t like anybody. At all. Generally I have a few people to root for but honestly, I am getting to a point where I just can’t be bothered.
I usually don’t need a cast of likable people to enjoy it, but this group feels different. Maybe it’s because the drama feels so repetitive? And I feel like nobody is really changing either. Big things happen and then people just go back to how they were. (I’m looking at you, Kady)
This is the first season I’ve watched without Casa Amor and I wonder if I just miss the big shake up that usually happens around this time. (For reference, the order I watched the seasons was 5, 4, 6, 3, and now 2)
What are your thoughts? Does it pick up? Am I crazy? Is everyone as unlikable as I think they are?
