But I’m soooo sick of seeing people hating on COLIN. Like it’s HIS fault Hook is popular. Like somehow he did some kind of voodoo or something. Really? Get over yourselves. SORRY people respond to him and like him. SORRY he’s a fantastic actor who’s doing a lot with the storyline they’ve given him. IDK what your problem actually is — except, maybe you’re IDK, JEALOUS? — but it needs to stop.
Look, I know you want to bury your heads in the sand and pretend that things that are BLATANTLY OBVIOUS don’t exist, but here’s the facts, cupcakes.
- Hook has ALWAYS been meant to be a love interest for Emma. Since Colin got HIRED. BEFORE that even, they were auditioning YOUNG, HANDSOME MEN for the role (Gil McKinney was up for it, as well!).
- Emma Swan in THE MAIN FUCKING CHARACTER. Her love story is going to be a BIG PART OF THE SHOW.
- Ergo, HOOK, being, ya know, HER LOVE INTEREST, is getting a lot of buzz. AS HE SHOULD.
As for media attention — the network isn’t in charge of the media. The media locks in on whatever it wants, whatever it thinks is going to generate hits on their websites/sales of their magazines. People. Like. Hook. Nobody is doing some kind of evil magic here, people like the guy. So yeah, the media is going to use that. Why the fuck woudn’t they? Hell, even people like you, hating on him, are still TALKING ABOUT HIM ENOUGH TO KEEP GENERATING BUZZ.
No one fucking complains when they write articles about ANYONE else, and it’s like you honestly seek these things out, because they DON’T really focus on him this crazy exorbitant amount. Regina/Lana Parilla gets a LOT of focus too, ya know. But casual viewers, who aren’t on sites like Tumblr or Twitter, don’t really seem to notice anyone being ~spotlighted more.
You’ve decided to make him your number one most hated, and in doing so, you bring all the stuff that IS written about him to your attention and then whine about it. He’s a series regular. He’s Emma Swan’s love interest. He’s a big deal. Either get used to it, or find a different show to watch, because I honestly don’t know what you want here. Literally, if it was ANY OTHER CHARACTER, you’re fine with it. The second it’s Hook, suddenly the world is ending, and that says more about YOU than it does anything else.
No one else on the damn show seems to have any problem with him or his character or storyline, and if anyone should be annoyed, it would be them. But they all seem to love it and him. How ‘bout take a page from your so-called “favorites” and just be gracious for once? Instead of a group of embarrassing, whiney, entitled brats? Because that’s what you act like, and it’s humiliating to be associated with some of you.
