I'm Still Hooked !
7 May 2019 | by scottkurschSee all my reviews

Again I'm addressing the 1/10's Campaign. - I dunno. You know those negative "wounded" people who always have that "Us Against the World" mentality who always find a way to make it about somebody being "oppressed" ? I think maybe THAT'S what infected the user rating platform.

For example ---> "It's especially gross when (the tortured) are only bisexual characters (or even any other minority character for that matter, which it ALWAYS is lets be real) that the writers take so much pride in being "so progressive" for." Then they talk about how Clarke was supposed to represent the BISEXUAL community, but if these LGBT and minority characters are always going to be mistreated {by the writers}, then they'd rather have NO representation at all.

Awwww. Are you serious ? Really ? I'm blown away that so many so-called fans have made this show about societal social agendas. I get that certain people groups have been mistreated in life, gone through painful stuff, and yearn to have gratifying representation on television that they can identify with. That's understandable. But all this "lashing out" and attacking of a TV SHOW'S creator, storyline choices, and writers, is just a really bad look, not to mention immature, unfair, and IMAGINARY. -----> "The writers have to get off of their high horse and stop queer baiting."

I'm starting to comprehend what's happened here. When word got around that the "The 100" had strong Bi/Homo-sexual or minority lead characters or side plots, those groups "rallied" around the show, tuned in, supported it, and became invested in their story arcs. They were figuratively "rejoicing" for a "win for our team". They were happy they finally had characters on-screen they desired to identify with and fall in love with. THEN, when the story arcs and character developments didn't conform to THEIR ideas or meet THEIR expectations, they felt BETRAYED and lashed out in the manner they are accustomed to. Hmmmm.

Does that sound pretty accurate or plausible ? I don't know what to say except that's what you get when you make TV SHOWS about something more than just SIMPLE entertainment. Thankfully, The 100 survived the "Assault of the Scorned" fanbase exodus and has moved on for 3 more Seasons and likely a 4th (depending how this Season 6 goes).

Perhaps the writers "got off their high horses and stopped queer baiting" to achieve continued success. Perhaps they ARE aware of the IMDB controversy that was had Season 3. Perhaps "Perverse Instantiation" has a double meaning signaling the lessons that the writers learned in Season 3. I'll be starting Season 4 tomorrow. Peace.
