On the one hand Iíd say Netflix still hasnít learnt how to merchandise its shows, but on the other hand, Stranger Things.

Animated shows often have trouble merchandising, because shelf-space in toy stores is expensive and so is producing toys.

I was given to understand that at the very start of the show, GRRM gave them a very rough outline for the entire story. However, they were still working with GRRM for the early seasons and then at some point, I think they had creative differences with him? Like they wanted to take the story in a different direction. It's not like GRRM couldn't have stayed on board with the show when they ran out of books and consulted, but he didn't and I think he's made it pretty clear he didn't like what they ended up doing. I wouldn't assume at this point that what happened in the last few seasons is accurate to GRRM's plan for the books.

GRRM said he didn't want to write any material that wasn't in book form, so he ducked out after Season 4.

did catra really need a magical cat familiar? Like, she seemed like she could handle poo poo pretty good on her own before.

Catra's familiar was part of her healing process. Someone who knew her only after she started to work on being a better person and loved her, showing just how far Catra had come from her bad old habits.

Dunno, felt more like circumstances once again twisting around someone who had fundamentally not changed. Feels less like Catra reached across and more like the entire world fell rear end backwards and they were all literally imprisoned in a space with Catra. Catra dosn't develop so much as she is given a figure who shows how she 'really feels' she isn't really forced to communicate honestly or actually do much differently.

So you missed her self-sacrifice to save Glimmer and Adora, huh?

Has there even been anger about S5 among the usual suspects? I remember the kerfuffle when S1 came out but now all I'm seeing on the internet is a lot of love (and some disagreement on how well some of the arcs were executed).

Which is pretty :3:

The usual suspects didn't watch the show. Their anger is performative, not real.

Which works a lot better for heroin than it does for religion. Especially religion as an adult. If she'd had the same kind of relationship with the Horde as Adora and it just sorta "worked" for her, even if it wasn't perfect then the metaphor of protestantism/religion would work just fine. But she knew the Horde was dumb and evil. She laughed when Adora tried to "reveal" that to her.

Religion does brainwash you, but you have to be open to the brainwashing. It doesn't chip control you -- unless she had a protracted adolescence and Horde Prime has been her parents the whole time? I could see a foster child narrative working here -- it feels really grainy to me because of Hordak and Shadow. But Shadow as an abusive foster parent and Horde Prime as a super lovely biological parent who swoops in to gently caress poo poo up is a believable take.

Anyway, chip control works way better for addiction since that's what addiction is like. Spinnerella tanking her marriage because of a slip-up and a hidden condition makes way more sense if she's a junkie than if she suddenly "got" religion.

You remind me of the guy who went nuts on the circumcision argument on the Silent Hill Wiki, likely due to some personal trauma.
We've heard your argument for why you think it's a heroin metaphor. Others have disagreed with it. You don't have to keep insisting your argument is right. Nobody wins that debate.
