Are there any franchises that so annoy and anger you that you wish it just fuck off already? I feel like I've moved beyond hating franchises for their content. Given that it's not real and you can ignore any parts you don't like, if you find a part of a franchise that really bothers ... just ignore it like an adult. Think of The Adventure of Charles August Milverton is dumb? Ignore it and go read The Valley of Fear instead. What really bothers me is that when a fandom is so massive and insular that it full of man-children that nitpick about 'muh continuity' with is completely meaningless and whose cultural knowledge barely extends to the 1970's. I wish those franchises would die so those fans would be force to find new entertainment (or maybe even learning about something real or a useful skill, but that's very ). Don't think of it as loosing your fiction; think of it as loosing your chains and being able to leave the cave and go into the warm daylight. Take capeshit, for example. It's fine with in small doses, but following and caring about the tangled soap-operatic plots that modern comic writers and scriptwriters is really exceptional. I like the first two/three Star Wars movies, but I don't like how for many a geek it feels like a replacement for an actual culture/religion. Some people need to just let go. The only thing worse is making a series of children's books your cultural/religious replacement. READ - ANOTHER - BOOK!!! I can't think of anything else that feel this way; they are easy enough to avoid. Yes, The Simpsons is now pale imitation of glory days, but I just don't watch anything past Season 13/14, so if it still profitable and some slow-in-the-minds like it, more power to them. I remember the day that finished the Garfield dictionary(!) and realize I was done with the strip. Still don't begrudge anybody who still likes it, and I give props for Jim Davis for keeping Garfield merch at a low burn and not whoring it out at max speed and, once it is done with, firing their creators like they are toxic garbage. And I get that The Big Bang Theory is a bad, even terrible show, but I can't bring myself to hate as many people do. I just feel ... nothing. I eagerly await your , and angry comments.
