Look I was the whiniest bitch when Shadowhunters first came out. I was– and still am– a die-hard fan of the books, and everything about it upset me: the crappy effects, the awkward script (unironic use of “come at me bro), the acting, the adaptation, the fight choreography- I complained about EVERYTHING.

But by now, I’ve realised something. Yeah, it’ll never win an Emmy, it’s never going to be the slickest show out there, but you know what? I don’t care. I do not care. Because honestly, which other show is going to give us FOUR poc lead characters? Which other show is going to give us a healthy interracial relationship between two men– one gay, and one bisexual– as one of the show’s central relationship? Which other show is going to give us a healthy, realistic sibling relationship as a central relationship? Which other show is going to give us healthy platonic relationships between two girls, two boys, and between girls and boys? In which other show is the showrunner going to listen to his fanbase and decide to make a lead character canonically PANSEXUAL? Which other show has a cast that is so happy and supportive of each other, so fond of their fans, and so supportive of every single ship– canon or not– from the show?

And it’s not the book adaptation I hoped for, but I still have the relationships I loved from the books– i.e. MALEC– as well as awesome new ones from the show (SAPHAEL). It may have chopped and changed the characters, but it also gave me new ones (like queen Lydia Branwell). Also: so? many? amazing? interracial? ships?

And you know what, I trust this show. Sure, it may not be the most intellectual thing I’m watching, but it’ll also never throw in needless shock value deaths, it’ll never employ racist or homophobic undertones and tropes in its writing, it’ll never diminish its minority representation to play into tropes.

So yeah, I’m done being cranky and negative about it. Because this show is fucking revolutionary. It’s healthier and more representative than half the ~smart, groundbreaking~ shows out there, it’s a healthy, positive fandom, it’s a breath of fresh air. And I am more than willing to let go of my initial misgivings for all I get in return. I love this show for the positivity and example it sets. I love the cast, I love the fandom, so I’m in. I’m in I’m in I’m in.

Though please, for the love of the Angel, may the writers never again use "come at me bro” unironically in scripts, because, ~seriously~ guys.

Chrysler’s 2011 Super Bowl Commercial Wins Emmy

Chrysler’s 2011 “Born of Fire” commercial featuring Eminem, his award winning song “Lose Yourself,” and the 2011 Chrysler 200 was recently awarded an Emmy by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for “programs and individual achievements.”

The highly acclaimed 2011 commercial, whose tagline was simply “Imported from Detroit,” was unveiled at the 2011 Super Bowl.  The commercial helped kick off Chrysler’s comeback as it rose from the ashes of bankruptcy.  It also helped spark interest in the newly revamped 2011 Chrysler 200, and brought light to its community roots in Detroit, the Motor City.
