I see you reblogging crazy ex girlfriend all the time and it looks like a show I might like, can you tell me a little bit of what's it about? I trust your judgement cause you have A+ taste in shows (:

I appreciate how you said “reblogging all the time” and not “have utterly spammed my dash with this absurd-looking show, what the hell, Em?” and I thank you for the kindness. <33

The Netflix summary of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is “Still pining for Josh, the boy who dumped her ages ago, whip-smart lawyer Rebecca jettisons her New York life and moves to California to win him back.” Yeah, not exactly appealing. And also not really what the show is about. But I can forgive them, since it’s pretty hard to encapsulate what this show is in a brief sentence. Because yes, surface-level, it is a dark-ish comedy musical satire about a lawyer who quits her job literally just as she’s about to be made junior partner after a chance encounter with her ex and moves across the country to be with him and finally find true happiness, but it’s about so much more.

It’s about deconstructing tropes, particularly those found in romantic comedies, including, you guessed it, the “crazy ex-girlfriend,” and examining how said tropes normalize irrational, harmful behaviors and actions in the name of love, which, PS, is no guarantee of real happiness. Tropes and stereotypes get subverted and blown apart and shredded and it is fascinating because you never know quite what to expect. 

It’s about a woman who literally sees her life as a series of musical numbers, especially when her emotions are running high, which leads to pastiches of pretty much any musical genre you can think of. Boy bands? Done. Fred and Ginger? You got it. Big Broadway send ups? Yup! And no topic is off limits! In just two short seasons, we’ve covered the horrors women go through to get ready for a date, romanticized depictions of depression, celebrating being bisexual, falling for your sex buddy, intrusive thoughtsthat self-loathing feeling when you fuck EVERYTHING up, the truth about having big boobs, and the more joyful side of UTI’s. And that’s (literally) not even the half of it. 

It’s about people dealing with mental illness in a way that is brutally honest and sensitive but also funny at the same time. It makes the content approachable without diminishing the seriousness of the condition. (Speaking as someone who struggles with mental illness herself, I find these songs in particular to be both painfully accurate and remarkably reassuring.) And it’s about the long-term ramifications of growing up with emotionally abusive and neglectful parents. 

It’s about relationships of all kinds – romantic, familial, platonic. They’re complicated and messy at times, rewarding and emotionally fulfilling at others. And while yes, romance is a major plot point, we are constantly reminded that while yes, there’s romance and it’s a major plot point, the most important relationship in the show is between our lady protagonist and her female best friend. (Oh, but did I mention that the healthiest relationship on the show is between a bisexual man and a gay man? Because it is. And that there was a stretch of eps without a single straight white man? Because that happened.) 

It’s about an antiheroine who does objectively terrible things and who consistently makes awful life decisions, who’s impulsive and self-centered, but is still a good person just trying to find happiness, who is surrounded by similarly nuanced and beautifully flawed characters who are also at a crossroads in their lives and trying to figure out what steps they need to take to be happy. And while the situations they find themselves in may seem over the top, they’re also so relatable.

There’s a lot to unpack with this show. The content can be pretty heavy at times, and it can be painful to watch these people you come to love sabotage themselves and struggle so much with their dreams. But it’s also just such a smart comedy that thrives on taking risks, so trust me – you’ll be laughing nearly the entire time. And it’s so fantastical and absurdist at times (dream ghosts, anybody?) that it makes for great escapist TV and is literally the only reason I’m still alive and thriving post January 20, 2017.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is honestly like nothing else on TV, and you may be in a bit of shock when you first start watching. (Literally, my first time I swear I kept pinching myself and asking “is this an ACTUAL show I am watching right now what is happening HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?!”) But trust me – there are so many reasons to watch this show and it took all my willpower to not just scream incoherently in this response for 10K+ words. So go on. Give it a shot. I bet before too long you’ll be falling in love and singing right along with the rest of ’em.

hopefully i can make it on time to draw another watch dogs 2 fanart for DedSec Fanzine. *faint

Hi!
I’m a university student who’s looking for some international friends or just people to talk to. I’m shy at first but with time open up and go crazy. I like reading, watching tv and don’t have specific taste in music. Also taking pictures of nature, drawing, crocheting and researching weird things.
You can talk with me about pretty much anything but sometime it took time to respond.

Wow, the new season of Yuri on Ice looks really good 

okay, Mike Baxter is officially one of the most unlikable characters on TV right now for me

the man is a racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic pig with a mind so closed I’m surprised any oxygen can get in there. and he’s not apologetic about it. and he’s so fucking stubborn and self-righteous and always has to have the last word and just so much the rich white male of the middle-USA I’m surprised he has the family he has.

because with him as a backdrop, the four females in his life who are already sensible seem just that much smarter and sensible and wiser and just great human beings.

I know that I guess Tim Allen’s supposed to be the “star” of the show, but any show that has women like that makes me think the writers themselves want to laugh AT Mike Baxter, not WITH Mike Baxter.

so that’s what I do.

every time he makes a comment that makes him seem like a horrible person, I laugh at him. because the reality that anyone could be this screwed up in their views is absolutely ridiculous.

Can we just take a looky at this old scene again...

So to start us off…

These two decide to full blown charge on Gen. Are they planning on punching him? Restraining him?? What are you guys planning??? 


Regardless, Gen just extends that limb and grabs Ceylan’s hood


Oh no there he goes, throw that to the side, goodbye


Toxsa’s turn, here we go again, grabs the head band


But he just flicks it down


There they go, so much for brave warriors- GeN WHAT ARE YOU DOING


yoU CAN JUMP THAT HIGH? and still maNAGE TO LOOK MENACING?? ( he must do some crazy squats to just hella jump like that damn )


Guren you better watch out one of your future boy friends is FLYING


just kidding despite that crazy jump he must’ve missed the landing (any one else digging that cat-ear lookin’ hairstyle?)


OH WAIT HELLO WHAT

gEN DID YOU JUST KUNGFU SLASH GUREN’S ANKLES OR WHAT

Because theRE HE GOES

ansate replied to your post: blueandbluer replied to your photoset This…

the title alone made me grar, but I am working my way up to trying it. tumblr slowly gets its way.

the title made me grar, and gifsets make it look like the humor is sometimes sort of more unkind than is my jam? i don’t love shows when we’re laughing at a character who’s feeling awkward or embarrassed, and maybe i’m reading it wrong, but it looks like there’s some of that. but i know so many people who love it that i feel like surely it can’t be that bad.

I used to think the storm chasers on tv were crazy. Watching as a child on late afternoons I’d cover my eyes, with fingers just wide enough to see through, as men and women abandoned secure homes and drove into hurricane centers, tornado ravaged towns, horizons cut by lightning. Counting each of my own increased heartbeats per minute, I could only imagine how their own adrenaline coursed through their veins. Like falling with a cord attached to your hip or smoking for the first time or the aftermath of hearing yourself say the word ‘stay’ and hearing someone else say 'not tonight.' I didn’t comprehend why anyone would want to put their life in the hands of something so reckless, unpredictable, painstakingly destructive in every sense of the word. And then I met you.
