"we can do anything." Except write a decent how without fucking with a known property. Why not just write an original cartoon with an Indian and or gay character. And this "tied to her whiteness" is utter, racist bullshit. If you get your head out of your ass and stop looking at everything through the lenses of race, gender, sex, orientation, politics, you just might be able to write a good story that stands on its own. Then your characters can be whatever.

I couldn't finish the trailer. I'd still watch it with the race swapping if it was a good show, but the characters are unlikeable. They tried to do an edgy ideologically correct show, and the characters come off as entitled bratty assholes. I think it's a little too close to reality for comfort, people don't want to watch someone just like how they actually are, they want to watch an idealized version of what they think they are.

A quote from Mindy Kaling why they race swapped Velma:

"We were really inspired by Into the Spider-Verse — it's animation, we can do anything. The essence of Velma is not necessarily tied to her whiteness. And I identify so much as her character, and I think so many people do, so it's like, yeah, let's make her Indian in this series."

The narcissism. I'm voicing her so she's gotta be like meeeeeeeee. There was also some other quote where she says Velma has always been a LGBT icon. No she hasn't. It was just a stupid joke everyone made back in the day based on the fact she was a frumpy nerdy chick, like how people joked about Shaggy being a stoner. She wasn't written/created to actually be a dyke.

There was a time when you didn't need a driver license. Later driver licenses were required. Driver licenses then needed a photo. Later you needed a written exam. A driving test was then required. Later you needed a medical test. A car inspection was required. Later you needed liability insurance. Driver license fees increased and fingerprints were required. Soon DNA samples, microchip implants, and vaccines will be needed to get a license.

Your life is over. The US is finished. There is no hope.

The USA is a bankrupt warmongering police state.

The elites have crossed every line and Americans didn't even shrug.

You are under house arrest. You can't work, go to school, start a business, go to church, buy a gun, protest, vote, or travel.

You are being unconstitutionally wiretapped 24/7.

The government can torture and extrajudicially assassinate you.

The border is closed and the world is a global police state.

The globalists will steal everything you have through taxation, forfeiture, inflation, fees, and fines.

Everything is illegal. The government and illegal immigrants don't obey the law.

Soon there will be mandatory virus testing and mandatory vaccines with microchip implants. Cash will be banned. Concentration camps will open.

Everything you learned is useless now.

There was a time when only murderers and thieves went to prison, but now everything is illegal and everyone is a criminal.

Jailing killers and robbers with Christians, business people, and gun-owners doesn't make the unethical more moral.

When everyone is criminal, society is weakened. Prison is just a university for crime that teaches you how to scam, bribe, look for loopholes, and game the system.

Americans have completely lost their minds.

Americans scream that the minimum wage must be raised and then Americans are baffled why prices rise and businesses close.

Americans beg for a trade war and Americans are shocked when prices rise and exports fall.

Americans say that the US should start wars and then Americans are puzzled why the debt rises, refugees increase, terrorism happens, and the police state grows.

Americans insist smoking must be illegal and then Americans are stunned when prisons become overcrowded.

Americans used to hate Nazis and Commies, but now Americans have now become Nazis and Commies.

Americans used to hate North Korea, but now Americans say that the USA should become North Korea.

Americans used to love personal responsibility, morality, balanced budgets, peace, and freedom, but Americans now love disgusting dependence, immorality, debt, war, and tyranny.

Freedom is the absence of government.

Law and order in a free country means that you'll go to jail for theft or murder.

Law and order in a police state means that everything is illegal and the government controls you.

American soldiers died fighting Nazis and Commies. Now Americans have become Nazis and Commies.

Nazis and Commies think that they only possible solution to any problem is force, but Libertarians think problems can be fixed by persuasion.

Nazis and Commies think anyone who insults their dictator must be executed, but Libertarians ask what's wrong with free speech?

Nazis and Commies lose their minds when someone wears saggy pants, but if there is no victim, there's no crime.

Nazis scream solar panels must be illegal and Commies say solar panels must be mandatory.

Nazis say going to church must be mandatory and Commies say churches must be closed.

Libertarians say live and let live.

People once thought that more Americans would become Libertarians when the US became a police state, but now the opposite has happened.

Instead of embracing freedom, Americans love tyranny more.

Since the government has destroyed the economy, Americans accept welfare and think that the state is their protector.

Once tyranny and brainwashing wins, people love their chains and will never love freedom again.

Even if the US never had freedom, does that mean liberty is bad?

Did the USA have curfews, NSA wiretapping, checkpoints, forfeiture, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, torture, kill lists, no fly lists, searches without warrants, private prisons, mandatory minimums, 3 strikes laws, DNA databases, CISPA, SOPA, NDAA, IMBRA, FBAR, FATCA, TSA groping, secret FISA courts, redlight cameras, license plate readers, and Jade Helm in 1980?

Did Americans need a pilot license in 1920 to fly a plane?

Did Americans have gun bans, business licenses, Social Security numbers, sales, income, or property taxes in 1890?

Were drugs, alcohol, smoking, gambling, and prostitution illegal in 1880?

Whelp, you're entitled to like terrible. That's your right.

One thing name Hollywood usually can do is act better than most of this cast. Nori Brandifoot is the only engaging cast member because she's not hyper-focused on Galadriel and she's doing things one expects someone in her position to do. Elijah Wood was famous, so was Viggo and Sean Astin and definitely Ian McKellan.

Last time I checked, the British tradition of Elves included traits that made them less human. Race swapping them makes them more human, which isn't the point unless you're a driven ideologue instead of looking to tell the best story.

Things in Hollywood look the same for the same reason RoP sucks. Most productions are a money-grab where there's a giant pile of money and everyone is grabbing at it until the money's all gone. Whether that's salary or perks or press junkets. This bloated budget most likely caused everyone working on it to lose focus. When you work on creative endeavors, it is possible to get lost in endless retakes and developments, especially if you don't have a vision. Evidence suggests that this is the case. The only vision that I could see was the insertion of the message at the expense of almost everything else.

Galadriel grew up in a time where there was no death. Her character wasn't a warrior and they didn't bother to give us even a short montage of show her becoming one. She's just great immediately at everything, while at the same time incredibly dumb because she apparently had to swim thousands of miles back to shore. Which makes no sense. All could've been avoided, but I don't think they care about those details. Only the message matters.

The problem with Galadriel is she's not a character, she's a vessel for the message. It's not Tolkien's message. It's the producers who continue to insist it's Tolkien's.

It's an enjoyable watch.

Most of his takes on it are bad.

If you get loads of Hollywood actors in something they will just play their persona, not actually act. That's not what you want for a fantasy. Every successful fantasy show has mostly jobbing character actors or if there is a famous person they are not recognisable as their star self.

He doesn't get British traditions of elves. They can be bad and mischievous as well as being near spiritual beings. They aren't Marvel drones, they don't have superpowers, they live normalish lives but more refined. He's projecting his own beliefs and expectations onto something outside his frame of reference. Even if you argue it's bad from a story point of view, that is why you end up with everything ending up looking the same in Hollywood movies. They don't like nuance and think their way of seeing things is the only way.

I actually like how unlikeable Galadriel is. We get so many characters now who are just great because they are born that way is nice to have someone who's an arsehole and gets good through having a cause which drives them to work hard. I think he's missing the likelihood that she has actually fucked up and brought the evil back into the world so she is in part the anti-hero and not supposed to be all round amazing or even a decent person.

Really, they complain when we get female characters who just turn up and are wonderful then when you get one who's grey or mean or a fuckup they can't take it. They think it must be a mistake, women just can't be that way. Fucking niceguy simps.

The episode this depicts is called "Threshold."

One time he got a traffic ticket and the lady he came in and fired was the wife of the cop that wrote him the ticket.
