I’ve been watching this show called Carnivale and the protagonist is this teenager named Ben Hawkins who has maybe divine healing powers and he’s the definition of a protag who gets dragged screaming and kicking into his destiny. Anyway, 95% of the time its Ben like “Fine. Magic is real and this carnival is run by demons or something. Please just give me a straight answer about this.”
Everyone else: *absurd bullshit and sexual innuendo*
Ben: *through his teeth* Please. Give me. A straight answer.
Everyone else: *vague mysticism and thinly veiled threats to kill him*
