“What’s good, guys?! This is my first special, Bring Back Apu, and it truly is special to me. Because somewhere along the line, South Asians started trying to cash in on victimhood currency. Complaining about cartoon characters, people mispronouncing our names, and God knows what else.

But we were raised better than that. Our parents, grandparents, uncles and aunties taught us dominate everything we do, just like they did when they made it here. And it is our privilege to carry that tradition forward. So it’s time to end all the victim shit and taking our identity back.”

The Walking Dead – Season Ten…

Date: January 30, 2022

Is it just me not seeing it earlier, or did they do the genre leap in The Walking Dead with the beginning of season ten?…in the middle of the whisperers story arc?

Season nine, post Ricks departure, while obviously a soft reboot, still felt like it was connected to the previous eight seasons…or, that it was following the same basic formula, if considerably more shallow and maybe a bit too fanciful with it’s elevation of Judith…I enjoyed this part of season nine [all of the season, honestly]…but then came season ten, which I waited two years for…

…And I swear…they took a solid drama…and suddenly turned it into what I can only see as a young adult, fantasy action series.

I’m really conflicted here…because I am genuinely enjoying season ten…but I despise when a long established series does a major genre jump.

To my mind…this just does not feel like TWD…It’s like they took the surviving characters from the original series, as of season nine…and plugged them into a stylistically different show.

The box said “this is not TWD…this is something better”…and I cannot disagree more…What made this show smoking hot, was the human drama…The first two seasons are TWD…But they’ve kept slowly shedding away what made this series great…and they’ve kept losing their fan base, because of it.

I hate to see this…and it looks like they’re chasing after Z Nation [another series I love] a bit, too…as some of this season clearly could have been ripped from a ZN episode, if you ask me.

One thing you could previously depend on, is that zombies aside…the world and characters functioned normally, as you would expect them to.

It’s like the movie Batman Begins [best Batman movie ever]…Sure, there will never be a Batman, and if there were, he’d get himself killed quick…but Batman and stunts aside, the world it was being represented in was normal…It followed the laws of nature…

…In TWD season ten, we have a guy who can dig his way up, through the bottom of a covered grave…something that never would have really flown in this series, during the first nine season…or, eight, at least…

I’m perplexed as to whether the real change happened during season nine…or season ten was just a kind of “hail marry”, to garner a wider viewer base.

I hate the fact that they changed this show so much…In all honesty, it’s no longer the original series…and these dorks couldn’t even wait till the conclusion of the whisperers arc, to start anew…That sucks…

At the same time…if they fashioned an offshoot show like this, I would be totally down with it…but give us a dignified, consistent conclusion to the original series first!

Changing the model and tone of a show nearly a decade running?…Hell No!…

…Jeez I wish I weren’t still enjoying this damn show so much.

This is just confusing….because it’s unsatisfactorily satisfying…if that’s even possible.

…and they’ve even sunk to optics, which could have been ripped out of the movie 300…

…STOP IT!…JUST STOP IT!

I think I’m going to have to consider Rick’s exit in the helicopter, to be the true ending of the original series.

I finished season ten…I forget the actual episode…I think it’s one of the last three…holy hell…This is the first time I’ve ever watched a TWD episode, where I was left thinking that episode was straight up stupid.

How did this series fall so far, so fast?

The actors are fine…but the direction is a disaster.

Republican Party Rebrands Itself As The Pro Insurrection Party Of Trump…

“The Republican Party is officially dead. They are no longer the Party of tax cuts for the wealthy and small government – they have now made the decision that they are pro-sedition, pro-insurrection, and that they are all loyal to a single man named Donald Trump. It is truly astounding that the Party managed to sink itself in this way, but that’s what happens when you let the fascists take over. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

“The recent multi-pronged attack on Joe Rogan has been exposed as an organized hatchet job, likely coordinated by a Democratic Party-affiliated SuperPAC called Meidas Touch. The effort has sought to smear Rogan as a spreader of COVID misinformation and a racist.

Jimmy and comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the likely reasons why Rogan was targeted and why others with much worse records have escaped scrutiny.”

Trump Asked Michigan Lawmakers To Seize Voting Machines For Him…

“A new report from The New York Times this week revealed that Donald Trump reached out to lawmakers in Michigan to see if they could get local cops to go and confiscate voting machines throughout the state. Luckily, the state declined his request, but these stories are quickly adding up and showing us just how close this country came to having Trump become a dictator. Farron Cousins discusses this.

Matt Gaetz Warns Of Dangers Of Letting Sexual Predators Escape Justice…

“Matt Gaetz should have been looking into a mirror when he gave a rousing speech on the House floor this week about the dangers of letting sexual predators escape justice. He was speaking against a forced arbitration clause for sexually harassed people in the workforce, but his words also perfectly described the scandal that he is currently embroiled in. Farron Cousins discusses this.

“Clip taken from DarkHorse Podcast Livestream #114 (originally streamed live on February 05, 2022)”

…But twitter does the exact same sort of ostrasizing crap!

How does one participate in this, when they’ve been banned for life from twitter, for the “terrible crime” of being a decent human being?
