i feel bad for liking td sometimes bc it’s just so problematic in so many ways, but like, idk i feel like most ppl should be mature enough know to take it at face value. bc the concept is fun and the characters are interesting and i think it invokes nostalgia in a lot of ppl. i feel like the writers just got ahead of themselves lol. idk if you feel that, or if you have a similar take on it?
See i have a huge nostalgia factor for td cause as a kid i didnt rlly look at every problematic thing fresh wrote in that i can notice as an adult. I feel if u take in ur media critically u should feel free to watch it. There’s a whole lot of a trainwreck w td involving racism, ableism, homophobia, sexualizing teenagers, god the list goes on so yeah its sad that a show with an idea SO UNIQUE AND GREAT has to suffer from the writer’s lack of care regarding these issues.
However if you’re able to recognize that there are issues w the show i dont think you should feel bad for watching it. You know the show isnt flawless and it takes a real fan of the show to know and understand that. I think you should consume it critically. Most of us here can at least enjoy it for the potential it had rather than what the writers did to the series and the characters. It’s best to like take something and be like “u did bad so this is my show now” dghsdh like there’s great fan content and season rewrites that do much better justice to the characters than fresh couldve done so like. The fandom part of it is fun and good in that aspect if you’d rather associate td with that to feel better!
