…I just finished watching it – took me all of three days basically.
I want to start by saying that, despite the things I am about to say here, I really do like the show: my heart has been broken more times by this than any other TV show I know, and I really care about the characters, even the ones I didn’t think I cared about I ended up caring about after they died. It’s truly a credit to the writing that I ended up having feelings about certain people. You know who I mean.
However, something about it bothers me, extremely much so. Not so much that I’ll stop watching (again, I stress, I care about these characters and want to see them survive) but enough to make a blog post about it and structure a final paper on it.
Granted this comes out of an East Coast liberal college education, so if you know what that entails and you have automatically disengaged from this because of that then feel free to stop reading: everything I’m about to say is nothing you haven’t heard before, whether it be about video games, movies, or other TV shows and you disagree with it being a problem. I won’t sway you, nor am I trying to. I’m merely stating the things that I see that bother me, personally, in the writing of this (otherwise great) show.
