Childhood Trauma
17 April 2019 | by ploofnSee all my reviews

This traumatized me as a kid. In my eyes it's about the blissful innocence of youth and how that changes when you get older. Here it's expressed through blood and gore and creepy dancing, when the real life parallel would be being exposed and jaded to the horrid reality of life as you get older. War, sexual abuse, pornography, crime, all that stuff. To me it's about how sudden and crazy growing up really is and how you brain becomes screwed up as you age. When you're a kid being creative sounds wonderful, and it's mostly portrayed here as a wonderful thing until the end. They reveal the dark side that Sesame Street would never show you and that's continued throughout all 6 episodes. Creativity is usually great, but people like Osama Bin Laden or Ted Bundy had to be creative to pull off what they did. You can get creative with a gun and a bunch of weapons. It's incredibly well done in every respect.
