Because. Seriously. You know what the world needs? A shitty Wonder Woman TV show where she has three love interests. THREE? FUCK, LETS SHOVE SOME MORE MEN IN THIS SHOW THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT A FUCKING AMAZON WHO FIGHTS CRIME. I DON'T THINK THERE'S ENOUGH MEN. WHY, WITH ONLY THREE MEN WE MIGHT THINK THAT WOMEN COULD DO THINGS ON THEIR OWN OR DON'T NEED TO THINK ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS ALL THE FUCKING TIME OR EVEN - GASP AND FUCKING SHOCK - MIGHT WANT TO FUCK OTHER WOMEN.

I shudder to think what the show will do when it has to touch upon such thorny topics as Wonder Woman and feminism. I keep having horrible acid flashbacks to the Wonder Woman animated movie - which was not as bad as I feared it would be, but still REALLY FUCKING BAD - and wanting to violently punch things. I don't care how fucking hilarious Nathan Fillion was as Steve Trevor (very hilarious, I must admit), his prominent role in the story was still fucking bullshit, as was the development of their relationship. Diana was apparently so hard up for sweet sweet cock that she'll go head-over for any ol' asshole who crash lands on her island regardless of how blatantly disrespectful he might be. HOW ROMANTIC...if you're the type of person who likes Twilight. I also don't see Superman needing Lois Lane's extensive, direct, physical help in the climactic battle of any of HIS movies. And if a movie written by Gail Simone and directed by a woman STILL CAN'T LET WONDER WOMAN BE A HERO ON HER OWN WITH NO PENISES INVOLVED AT ANY POINT, I do not want to see what's going to happen with a series for network TV.

And I'm not holding my breath for the casting job either. They say they want "late 20s to 30s" but somehow it's going to be Jessica Alba in a star-spangled bathing suit. Or it'll turn out to be Katy Perry for no raisin and then I will have to actually set the entire production on fire with my mind.

Man. I don't even LIKE Wonder Woman. I just want there to be a show where a woman can be the lead and the hero and get shit fuckin' DONE and the male characters will be minor supporting cast who get to stay in the fucking kitchen and watch while she fuckin' takes care of business. ALSO NO FUCKING ROMANCE. I like relationships between characters. I do. But every time a female character gets a boyfriend, suddenly shit is all about them so you know what? This time, lets just not. At all. It doesn't need to happen every time. Fandom will take care of that shit anyway, you don't need to worry your pretty little head over an actual romantic subplot. Just toss a few suggestive scenes in for a couple characters and let it go.

I can only recall the series through my nostalgia filters when I watched it as a kid so from what I remember; the first Digimon series was a fucking awesome tale about of a bunch of kids getting trapped in a mysterious world and how they deal with it.

The second series was just crappy, suddenly everyone was older, which I frankly didn't mind but all the new ones WERE ACTING EXACTLY LIKE THE OLD GUYS WITH A FEW DIFFERENCES. Also that younger girl who was more interesting the first series, somehow became a one dimensional wallpaper. There were just many under-developed characters,under-developed plots and..and..WHAT THE FUCK WAS UP WITH PAIRING WITH MATT WITH SORA WHEN TAI RISKED HIS ASS TRYING TO SAVE HER AND MATT/SORA HARDLY INTERACTED WITH EACH OTHER? HOW??!. Also, when they revealed that the main bad guy from the previous show was the final villain, it drove me nuts, I actually shut off the tv then.

Also at the end everyone MARRIED EACH OTHER AND HAD KIDS, THAT LOOKED LIKE EXACTLY LIKE THEIR PARENTS BUT WITH A FEW DIFFERENCES THAT IMMESNELY CREEPED OUT MY 10 YEAR OLD MIND AND THEY WERE SENDING THEIR KIDS INTO THE WILD THAT NEARLY KILLED THEM WHEN THEY WERE KIDS. ALSO NOW THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS WERE NOW EVEN OLDER AND WE CAN'T HAVE ANOTHER AWESOME SERIES BECAUSE THEY ARE NOW MUCH OLDER.


So yes, that's most of what I remember from Digimon. I don't really plan to re-watch it thought since I want to keep that 'nostalgic image' in my mind safe for now.
