Remember how we spent like 85% of season 1 hating on miss martian and her weird schoolgirl crush on Conner and her stupid “Hello Megan” and her general bubbly teenage girl stereotype personality even going so far as to join a cheerleader team called the fucking bumblebees and remember we hated on her being called like a powerful telepath and we were like ‘oh great she’s a mary sue now’ and then the show pulled a fast one on us and gave us a backstory that was compelling and tragic AND gave us a completely plausible explanation for her weird idiosyncrasies and remember how after we all saw that episode we sat there completely dumbfounded with nothing better to say than “well fuck.”
I’d never felt so played by a show like fuck the execution was flawless.
Anyway I’m watching YJ again and idk I like M’gann a lot more now
in the only good news of 2016, YJ Season 3 is happening!! So my roomie and I are making our way through the two seasons together.
We got through a few today and I was acutely reminded of what a big fuckin shitbaby Superboy is, what an enormous fucking shitlord Superman is to him, and how fucking accurate these teenage characters are. Now that I work with teens, like, every damn day, it’s interesting seeing how they stack up against actual teens. Turns out, they’re very close.
