brooklyn theory


In sitcoms, even the guy who serves your coffee is a comedy genius. Every third line is a punchline, and every routine task turns into slapstick shenanigans. You can hear this reflected in the audience, who are rarely able to contain themselves in the face of such hilarity. It’s a world full of laughter and fun!

First, while we the viewers have the benefit of hearing the laugh track or live studio audience, the people actually living in the sitcom do not. They hear nothing but the endless silence of the void. You may have seen this clip in which the audience is removed from The Big Bang Theory. Without the canned guffaws, each quip is met with a dead silence oozing with bitter contempt:

Nobody here finds anybody else funny. Rajesh spends the clip making sexist demands at Penny, who is clearly not amused, and her justified denial results in the comeback, “Looks like somebody’s been taking bitchy pills.” Without the laughter you realize that’s not a joke – that’s just being an asshole.

Even the friends from Friends – ostensibly a show about six people who enjoy hanging out with each other – are revealed to be sad, miserable dicks without the laugh track.

6 Horrible Implications Of Living In A Sitcom Universe

My thoughts on the "Get Out" scene.

I think…🤔

Harry described Magnus is like a cat, in his movement and flow. Which is how I think the show is somehow incorporating “Chairman Meow.” The “cat” isn’t there, but it is. I always see Chairman Meow as Magnus’ internal dialogue of self. Examples: He doesn’t date anyone who his cat doesn’t like or the “over the top” birthday party he had for Chairman in the books. It’s loving the cat is to “find” the love in him. It’s a self-esteem thing and it’s reflective.

Think: His eyes, his superior complex (which he uses to deflect the hate and the discrimination–you got to have a strong personality to deal with the abuse), his sass…his independent, his orphanage background, his loyalty…etc…I have a cat, myself. I adore her, but she got some attitudes…if you know what I mean. Cats!!! They have these fascinating personalities. Good, lovable, and wicked at the same time.

When cats are wounded (either in the wild or domestically), they would hide. They are naturally…the hunters by character, not the prey. When they are weak…they are vulnerable. It’s not good to appear “weak” for cats. Because you’re will get eaten or dethroned. So they hide, until their strengths is restored and they come back like nothing has happened. I can imagine this is Magnus his entire life.

Trust was broken at an early age for him. If you guys know the books. It’s very dark. His mother’s suicide, his step father tried to kill him, having to kill to survive, and to be controlled and to live with the very individuals who wants you dead (he lived with the silent brothers when he was very little)…and all those lovers…how many actually loved him…enough? I just throwing random contents out there.

Now, being wounded by a greater demon is going pull Magnus back to that dark place. He told Alec, that it has been a century since he open his heart to someone. That’s a long time. And that’s a big deal. So after the switch, Magnus will go lick his wounds…quick…because people need him. There’s a war going on. I always think the reason why he so willing to help others so much…is that internal fight he has against the concept that he was born evil. That you are defined by your nature. Think socially, how many social stereotypes we place on people because of their appearance, relationship, religion, sexuality…and genetics. Shadowhunters are infamous in reminding Magnus how “little” they think of him.

But it’s not going to work this time. The wounds are not healing. The pain isn’t going away. He can drink, laugh, sass, and dance it away (basically…he will be hiding away)…then he will realize how much of an act he has to perform just to survive…just to accept his life.

He will act like nothing hurts, but it does. Very much. You can hint all this “pain” in Harry’s interview.

So Alec is going to show up with the possible “papers.” The Downworlders’ regulations and he going to ask Magnus to sign and to encourage other Downworlders to sign also. “Don’t you trust me…” as Magnus replied. This is going to piss Magnus off. I want him to be mad. Unfortunately, for Alec…he is the Messenger. To Alec, it’s not a big deal…not yet…because he hasn’t seen the other side. He thinks it’s something that will keep the war in control. To stop more problems from happening. To know who your allies and enemies are. Think about the US and Britain’s views on immigration right now. “Let’s keep them in order” attitude to prevents “things.” But what it is…is a wall. To remind Magnus…that Downworlders will always be beneath the Shadowhunters and the Shadowhunters can and will determine the meaning of “freedom” for them. They are not equal. Doesn’t matter how much you help them, doesn’t matter that you love one of them…it’s just doesn’t matter. Here’s the man you love with papers to tell you…that’s we own you.

He’s going ask Alec to leave. This is another wake up call for Alec. Sorry, he kinda needs it. He needs this challenge. The world is so much bigger that his Shadowhunters’ upbringing.

But this all my assumptions.

It’s going hurt…no matter what actually does happen…but I do not think that it will tear them apart but actually bring them closer. Relationship does takes efforts.

I really excited for their character developments. As individuals and as a couple.

I’ve had a real hard time motivating myself to like do creative shit because like

the fucks the point, like it’s always been *for me* because that’s what a creative venture should be for but after a certain point of effort like

I’ve now spent two weeks writing a fiction thing that’ll be read by maybe four people?  If I’m lucky?

Let alone the like, article I took 6 months to write that idk how many people read? Probably less than 20?

And then I hear podcasts led by people with recognizable names and i find out that they’re as old as me or younger and it’s like what the fuck am i doing? I’m never gonna be a cool brooklyn leftie so my theory stuff’s never going to reach a wide audience, so why even spend time on it?

Here’s what I think Jake and Amy might be going for in Season 4 (or something like that)

First, let me present the evidence:

Season 01 Finale - “I kinda wish something could happen between us. Romantic-stylez.”

Season 02 Finale - “So, a lot of change around here, huh?”

Season 03 Finale - “We should move in together”“I love you, so much”

Okay, so as we can see the show has been consistent on giving Jake and Amy one big step at each season finale. First, s01 finale was Jake finally telling Amy how he felt, big step. Then, in s02 finale they shared their first kiss(es), big step. And now, s03 finale they’re in a serious relationship and decide to move in together, big step.

Now, following that ‘big-step-pattern’ what do you guys think they’re going for in the S04 finale?

Right now we don’t know where they stand because of the witness protection cliffhanger (I personally think Amy is not with him, but she knows why he’s away), but I’m sure that regardless of how this plot-line resolves, they will be (still or again) together by the end of next season.

So this might be a long shot here, but they will most likely take another big step by the end of next season and I think the logical way to go would be getting engaged.. Maybe even married already, since there’s also a pattern of big steps mid-season for them (s01 ”you’re not allowed to fall in love with me”“won’t be a problem”, s02 “did you [like me back]?”“yes, maybe, a little”, s03 “I love you”“I love you too”).

Anyway, this is one big ramble just to say that I firmly believe Jake and Amy will be either engaged or married by the end of next season, so brace yourselves.

ps.: sorry, gifs not mine, I just googled it.
