Can I rant? Pls?
Okay. Ranting continues here because my friends hate me and don’t listen anyways.
I SWEAR, AS MUCH AS I’M PRETTY SURE FITZSIMMONS IS GOING TO BECOME A PREDECESSOR TO THE CIVIL WAR MOVIE, I WILL RAGE IF IT DOES
This whole AOS mentality of “you die or you’re a traitor” is annoying the life out of me. I’m still loving the show and the plot is thrilling, but in character terms, I’m really being stretched. The “no victories” thing is killing me.
With almost every new character either dying or becoming a traitor (looking at you, Mack, Morse, Idaho, Tripp, etc.), I guess they’re just pushing everything too fast. There’s no more positive character development. Simmons, Fitz, and Skye are pretty much going backwards on a development scale. Coulson and May (and probably Hunter) are my islands of sanity in a sea of plot-based frustrations, for now. I’m sure the creators will find some way to kill that too.
It’s simultaneously boring, and stressful, if you get my thought process, because the show isn’t going anywhere. There are no victories. If Fitzsimmons ends up being Civil War stuff, I will break something. They made the attachment to the Fitzsimmons sub-plot great. I love it. However, they’ve created too much to actually just rip it apart and “let’s leave it at that because reasons.”
In short, I guess I’m just not getting any fulfillment. Marvel better pick up the slack. I can guarantee they’ll probably lose some viewers if they don’t.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ll totally continue to watch. I love the show. It’s my life. Marvel’s just trying my patience. I should go jog this off.
