I don’t understand
People saying they don’t watch the get down because
- It’s not their kind of show
90 % of things I watch are Sci-fi, Fantasy and crimes fighting stuff. The get down isn’t my kind of show either, but I still watched and loved every minute of it. That’s how good that show is. And it’s only 1 season of 11 episodes man, 11, you can binge watch show like supernatural, and criminal minds (don’t get me wrong I also watch and love those shows) that have 12 seasons with like 22 to 26 episodes each, but you can’t survive 11 episodes?
- They don’t understand what they saying (yes, I’ve heard that)
News flash, there is a thing called subtitles you can put on. You can also find it in diverse languages, it’s 2017 if you don’t have Netflix, don’t tell me you don’t know some other sites to watch it. Hell, if you really wanna watch it in English, find someone whose English is better than yours and watch it with them or watch it more than one time it’s 11 episodes bruh. English is my third language man, I watched it 2 times with subtitles on and I understood everything just fine
- It’s not good LGBT+ rep
Let me tell you something, I watch a lot of shows and have a lot of ships, and in all my years of shipping, before I watched the Get Down, there was only 2 others ships that I could kinda see myself in. Do you see the problem?? I’m a black bisexual girl and in all those tv couples I could only see myself in 2 of them? And even then, only when I watch Dizzee a black bisexual character in an interracial relationship with Thor that I really know that I really want something like what they have. When someone ask me what kind of relationship I want for myself, I won’t have to hesitate because I got the perfect example of what I want. Maybe they don’t kiss on screen, but the magic with them is that you can feel their love for each other without them saying a single word, they just glow when they are around each other. It’s fucking surreal man, and I fucking want the same thing and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
In other words, stop making up weird excuses and go watch that piece of art
