SO BASICALLY THE ONLY EMOTIONALLY SATISFYING SHOW CURRENTLY ON THE AIR
WHERE WOMEN HAVE AGENCY AND ARE TREATED LIKE THINKING, FEELING, WORTHY HUMAN BEINGS
IS ALSO A SERIES WHERE PEOPLE DIE HORRIBLY AND GET EATEN
what a time to be alive
BUT I’M CONFUSED, NO ONE ON BROOKLYN NINE NINE HAS EVER EATEN ANYBODY
lol i see so many posts that have the same basic idea as OP’s (swap out Hannibal for any other canon) it’s just like… guys. the shows (or movies or games or books) you want EXIST. they totally exist. they often just don’t have huge fanbases because idk apparently people are averse to googling for more than 5 seconds or taking chances on fandoms that currently don’t have an in-built, wildly talkative fan following.
not to mention the plethora of woman-prioritizing shows i’ve seen- some of which feature WoC- that get dismissed for flimsy “SJ” reasons
it gets to be like… god, if you want to participate in shows with a lot of tumblr buzz all the more power to you. but a lot of those shows are dude-centric and you know this. you know this every week you go in. the things you want are in existence out there. hell, every so often the shows you want get masterposts that gets reblogged like wildfire, everyone acts all excited and swears to watch… and then the next day nothing. it’s time to go back to dr who/supernatural/teen wolf/WHATEVER.
just… representation matters (and i’d give so much to see more PoC/LGBT/disabled/female representation in the most mainstream of mainstream media), but there’s not as much of a drought as you think there is. your progressive darling of the moment is not the only thing of its kind. it might be the most buzzworthy at the moment but it’s not the only thing, and the reason it’s not buzzworthy is because people aren’t willing to take chances and put their money (or views or gifs or WHATEVER) where their mouths are.
"Dad always said this town could wreck a person. It’s what happens when you’re playing a rigged game. I convinced myself ‘winning’ meant getting out but in what world do you get to leave the ring and declare victory? This is where I belong, in the fight. It’s who I am. I’ve rolled around in the mud for so long, wash me clean and I don’t recognise myself. So, how about I just accept the mud and the tendency I have to find myself rolling in it? My name is Veronica and I’m an addict. Hello Veronica."
Just letting people know - if you watch the Veronica Mars film, be sure to watch through the credits.
From artist Jay Sean, two fantastic teaser posters for the movie.
if ever again a greeting i send to you
short and sweet to the soul i intend
Where’s the bird, Wilson? I’m nearly bursting with Pirate pride here. Weevil want to punch a cracker!
In reaction to this public embarrassment for Veronica, a fight breaks out.

It’s also an important reminder that Veronica Mars could only be a female character. It’s not a show that would work if the main character was simply reassigned to a differently-gendered actor. Veronica thrives on that underdog status. She needs people to consistently look down upon her, in the most obvious literal sense as well as the conventional metaphorical sense, in order to be so effective. - TV’s Great Women
