The Machine's Game: A Game Theory Take on If-Then-Else (not as boring as it sounds, promise!)
Okay, so the title might make this sound like I posted a research paper on here, but I swear I tried to make my nerdy thoughts accessible. If-Then-Else was an amazing episode in and of itself, but when I kept seeing game theory in the episode, dork!me could not stop freaking out about what it meant for interpretations of the Machine, especially how it processes information and its relationships with humans.
you know what i love about daredevil? they did the whole dark and gritty thing without falling into the trap of being cynical or reveling in the violence of the world they created. a lot of ~grimdark shows leave me feeling frustrated and vaguely ill but daredevil doesn’t. yes, it’s dark and scary and violent, but it’s also about hope and faith and friendship and real heroes helping their fellow humans. the grittiness of the show emphasizes the importance of those things instead of mocking them as foolishly optimistic. it’s not “oh the world sucks and we all become monsters in the end.” it’s “the world sucks and our choices matter, we can make it a better place but how we go about doing that also matters” and that’s a really important difference??? ugh what a good show i’m going to rewatch it
Okay but why do the writers keep shoving in abuse storylines if they still don’t understand how to deal with them? Why are they ruining the only healthy parent/child relationship on this entire show just because Emma is the Dark One? And why in the hell are they acting like Regina and Neal are some wonderful people who have always been good and just misunderstood and ugh…
What is wrong with this show?
Why do you people keep torpedoing the fifth episodes? Is this a new dare or something to see how many people you can keep watching after abuse episodes?
