The Chemistry Of The MCU

Firstly it’s not something I usually comment on but I feel it is a big part of the success of the MCU and how it works so I thought it is important to address it.

One of the things that isn’t talked about is Superhero/Supervillian chemistry in films. “Wait what it’s talked about a lot, what rock have you been living under” yes this is true it is talked about a lot but only through the lens of how these relationships work well in movies but then they compare it to other films with great chemistry that are not superhero films. What I’m actually looking at is there is a unique protagonist relationship of chemistry that only works in superhero movies and only works in this genre. It’s unique.

The reason it’s unique is because you can’t compare it to any other genre that yields strong chemistry mostly in a realistic environment, superhero films live in an unrealistic universe that defies logic but tries to assimilate itself into the realities of “this is normal” there for the chemistry between characters are sharing strong bonds over a fictional unrealistic scenario that connects the two. How on earth or space does an actor/actress draw from experience when there is no relatable experience like what they are going through. Sure there are close substitutes you can take from real life and it’s by that of which most “chemistry” in these films are viewed.

Historically most chemistry in superhero movies failed. This is because it’s hard to draw bonds in a fictional reality. That’s why the MCU has mastered this technic and keeps you engaged and watching these developments. But I can still be critical on it. Even the MCU is flawed in parts but it’s outweighed or manages to fix those relationships much later on.

For example the chemistry between Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr’s – Spider-Man and Iron-Man mentorship. It is a great example of chemistry done right. But Ironman himself is also a victim of failed chemistry to.

Looking back at Ironman 1 – You have the relationship with Obadiah Stain, James Rhodes, Pepper Pots, Yansin, Jarvis and Happy Hogan. Out of all these relationships the only one bit of genuin chemistry was in Robert Downey Jr’s Ironman with Jon Favera’s Happy Hogan. Everyone else was just playing there part in the role they was given. But despite the failed chemistry it also kind of worked. The isolated Tony Stark is only thinking of himself, and thus is the start of his journey as Iron Man. In fact the brief moments of happy hogan relates mostly to friendship more so than Tony Starks friendship with James Rhodes. Not a problem with the actor as I thought he played the role well. Just a shame they didn’t keep the actor.

Over the series of Iron Man films and of course the presence of Ironman in avengers and other marvel films is where the chemistry with other characters like Pepper Pots and of course Spider-Man occurs. So even though the chemistry wasn’t originally there, marvel fixed it.

Now as we know when chemistry doesn’t work the actor gets replace but with the exception of Jim Rhodes who the original actor did get replaced. None of the other characters did. Hogans relationship with stark grew and keeps growing beyond Ironman death. You see this in Spider-Man Far From Home. He has truely become Peter Parkers guardian. Because Tony may have asked him to, maybe because the chemistry with Jon Favera and Robert Downey Jr now includes Tom Holland.

The best way to look at this is via Faveras cooking show where he invites Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr of which they talk about how Holland was cast. However it doesn’t always work out so quickly looking at Pepper Pots and Tony Stark. The entire films revolve around there relationships of getting together and growing respect for each other but they felt further apart than together – this is probably a studio decision to focus more on Ironman adventures rather than his relationships. But with pepper and starks chemistry didn’t come until Avengers Endgame. The scenes of a troubled Tony trying to solve timetravel and pepper seeing Tony and acknowledging Tony for who he is was probably the best moment the two actor/actress shared since the beginning. Again it took a while but they got there. They fixed it. But you look before that. Pepper is very independent. I hope to see more of Pepper Potts because I feel there is more to her story.

Then we get to WandaVision – absolutely love the show but the biggest problem I had with it was “where did there relationship come from” it felt so alien even in the marvel films. You have him created them after that he expresses a strange interest in her. I believe the reason is that between the mind Stone and wanda’s reality alternating powers there was a connection that excited them both. But it’s never fully explored “maybe a season two of WandaVision storyline” and this is my point. The chemistry between Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany is amazing is Wondervision. I was hooked to that show. Because of great chemistry.

So now that we have talked about marvels success let’s talk how it doesn’t work in other movies. I want to split this into two categories – other Marvel non-MCU universes like Fox’s x-men or daredevil then the second categoric is Dc comics/ independent comic book stores made into films like The Mask, Spawn, Dredd etc.

Fox’s x-men gave us our first true look at a superhero team up and I consider it a precursor to how MCU is successful. But the problem with the X-Men films was that it didn’t acknowledge chemistry. And only acknowledge our chemistry with the character on screen.

In the first film there was chemistry between Wolverine and Rogue – she found a protector and he found someone to care for. To fight for a good reason. Where not talking about a love story of lust. But one of two lone wolfs finding a partnership. Like a bromance or an adoptive family much like The A-Team. But fox didn’t explore this so it’s isolated to the first film and barely mentioned in later instalments. In fact they cut a Rogue rescue scene in a future film. Fox cared more about your relationship with the character – this is why the most popular was followed. The x-men franchise had you hooked on the life of Wolverine. Second to that was Charles Xavier and Magnetos relationship which is another chemistry that worked but again lacked to cover. But I’ll come back to that. The x-men franchise failed and got worse because those in power was looking for the next bigger and best story they knew the fans wanted certain things but they was misinformed even in that. So what we got was a disconnected future. Looking at Apocalpyse and Dark Phoenix they failed because in Apocalpyse the story basically says that the original films didn’t really exist because timetravel in the Earlier instalment got rid of it. Then dark Phoenix was supposed to be an apology to the dark phoenix we got in x-men 3. Nobody asked for that.

So it’s lack of chemistry especially in the later years was the downfall of its franchise. It birthed the era of superhero teams. Without them you wouldn’t have the MCU but it’s also a tale of if you fail to miss chemistry it will destroy your franchise.

Moving on to non marvel products. I have already got a post on how DC works better as single films rather than its own MCU. There is also examples of bad chemistry but I don’t want to cover this as I feel I would just be covering old ground. Instead I want to look at The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen. It was a failure much to how DC failed. See you have a group of historic characters “historic in a fictional sense” like Jeckle and Hyde, Nemo and Dorian grey. The film just didn’t no how to connect any of them, there was no chemistry because the characters are far too different. See someone who is a vampire has no shared experience to someone going through a Jeckle and Hyde moment. Vampires enjoy their transformation it’s more of an addiction where as Hyde was basically the Incredible Hulk the first Incredible Hulk really Jeckle had no control over Hyde and was scared what Hyde would do. Again no connection no relationship no chemistry. It’s because of this film Alan Moore the creator of the comic books didn’t like movie adaptions. In fact when you read the comics there is greater focus on chemistry between them all and all of that was left out of the film. But they did get it right with Watchmen. Watchmen is an example of great chemistry that went nowhere. At a time when they got it right they got it right to a franchise that birthed a solo film. So we never expected to see these characters again. There would be no sequel. In fact the future television show they made felt hollow because it’s not the original cast.

Superhero chemistry is far more complex to achieve as I have shown above. It’s hard to master, requires a lot more elements than just two characters working well together.

But then not only has the MCU done this well not only can they do it they can also fix it. This is a model that other films should adopt. This way we would get a far greater relatable movie than something that gets overhyped and becomes a flop.

There is no Zac Snyder cut of a marvel films and I mean that figuratively as zac Snyder never did a marvel film at least I don’t think he did. But there has not been a much better directors cut. Proof that MCU is doing it right and DC is failing.

My advice to DC abandon your JLA universe and just focus on the one good franchise you have Batman. And maybe Wonderwoman

The Problem With The Future

Lockdown, lockdown, release on delay. Please help my film make money I pray.

Is film dead? Of course not, but how we make it is. See the problem with the industry is that it acknowledges the existence of the future of online streaming but they are trying to push their square business model into a pyramid hole of online content and hoping as it doesn’t fit that one day it will.

See the viewers are really in control, I miss blockbusters the art of going to a place to pick out a movie was based on which poster or movie trailer you saw that enticed you in. Or the random blurb written on the back of a well artistic box that makes you rent it. Then you have cinema where we had no choice but to watch what they say is on. They had control in those days but when online streaming happened they got rid of the rental and pushed more on Cinema. Then Boooom Covid-19.

The streaming services victorious battle much like the Betamax and VHS war and also the Sony Blu-ray HD disc war – online rules supreme. But they don’t have the control anymore, we do. We don’t have to watch what we don’t want to see. We can be critical we can be decisive and we can tailor make our lives. WELCOME TO TGE FUTURE. And that is what Hollywood and all studios don’t seem to understand. Because with the likes of YouTube and other online uploading social media outlets we create the content. Not them. Sure they have tried to get involved but there bubble has shrunk. They have become extinct and the only people who don’t seem to know it is them.

It’s sad news for us because the era of wanting to make a Hollywood film one day is a dream we inspire to. But that barrier is gone now. We are free, we can do it ourselves and we can get famous without them. However that last part relies on you doing or creating something that will be found and makes you famous. It’s still not an instant success thing. But that’s my point. That is the future of media. Self created content. That we control.

Now although studios don’t seem to know this, doesn’t mean the actors/actresses don’t know this. In fact they are very clued in on this future. If I was to list a few names let’s look at them. Kevin Smith famed for clerks mallrats and other films a cult iconic film maker was unaware he was able to do his own online thing and boom there it is. And he is thriving on YouTube. But then we look at the other spectrum John Krasinski of The Office and Jack Ryan fame. Started good news something I forget it’s name but I watched a few and through video call was able to create pretty much what something like Saturday night live did. The era of studio and high costs are gone. Media is liberating

So if it’s free to make how do they make money. Well that’s a good question but that’s where sponsorship comes in. The production can be small cost for a larger payout by sponsorship. That’s where the future of the business is. And there are good examples of where these productions grow from that. YouTube channels like Good Mythical Morning and Modern Rogue are setting the way forward for shows with the power softly in the hands of its creators. And not investments of big budget films.

The online world is only still beginning – we need to have a new vision and all us old dogs. Those that yearn for times gone by should yearn for times yet to come.

Enjoy the future. And to quote Captain Planet – The Power Is Yours

The Future Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

How much life does the MCU have left on the big screen? This powerful machine that was created between Marvel and Disney has been a staple of the 10’s and now we are in the 20’s (Albeit a bit of a rough start) the question is, when will this fade end? how will it end? what is there ultimate endgame.

Not that i would want it to end, i have enjoyed this journey through so many films they have achieved something amazing in such a short period of time. Its masterful and something that is ingrained into history of film making.

Now the interesting thing about the MCU is that it breaks alot of rules. All models that exist successful or unsuccessful franchises have nothing to compaire to the MCU. Franchise either die or die then reboot and at a stretch die-rebirth many years later. But MCU doesnt fit into this, the core source has been going since the 60’s and still going strong. The films have an infinity of storylines and material to keep this fresh for many many decades. Yes i said decades.

But it is unlikely that we will see this, trends occure because of th people keeping focus and well the MCU achieved an impossible with Infinity War and Endgame. They created the ultimate end to something but it wasnt the end. Now we enter into Phase Four which we can only speculate where this is going. Now 2020 could be damaging towards the interest but in a time when people needs focus they are looking at this more than every. The expectations are high for the next chapter in this fable.

So when does all this end? if there is anything to look towards, i would say the MCU is its only model and they already gave us the three phase approach, so what we can expect from Phase Four is set up for Phase Five and Phase Six which we know this is where they are heading.

The question is, by time they get to Phase Six will they continue the franchise? will there be interest and what would it look like? I find it very unlikely that when we get to Phase Six ending that we will see a Phase Seven. This is mostly because of two things, the people that are making the films probably at this point would of worked on the franchise for over 20 years so new blood would be promoted and with that comes unease. Secondly by time they get to the end of Phase Six, what franchise would be left to follow. All the big hitters would of had their story told, we would be introduced to the X-Men, Fantastic Four, probably Namor – what comes next?

You could look at something revolutionary like some of the lesser known characters of modern era being promoted up to the big leagues, but this is happening now with the likes of Ms Marvel. So really there is no vision of what a Phase Seven could look like.

In theory, Phase Six is the perfect time to end it. It gives the oppertunity to end this shared universe and they could then focus on smaller groups of stories splintered off not worrying about having to co-exist for a shared overal story arch. Plus by 2030 roughly when this phase will end its the right age for actors like Robert Downey Jr to reprise his role as Iron Man to have one last tip of the hat.

Ok seems bleak but it feels right to end it at Phase Six, i would love to see this go on and on until we reach Phase one hundred. but it wouldnt be benificial and like what Harvey Dent said in The Dark Knight you ether die a hero or live long enough to become a villain and if this franchise continues it will become hated. So really the best business plan they could have is to make the ending of Phase Six thee end of this.

So where would you go in a post Phase Six era?

Singular franchise stories, meaning no more shared universe. Continue with characters that can provide a series of epic films.

Good example of this is Fox’s X-Men – wither you like them or not they have had a successful run outside of this MCU and infact because of this is probably how we ended up with the MCU in the first place.

as we know The X-Men are being introduced, so are Fantastic Four, they would only have a chance to breath in phase six before the lights go out. But this is Marvels future.

After Phase Six. The X-Men could continue the frachise on away from the likes of Avengers. they have alot of stories and shifting the focus from Avengers to X-Men makes sense.

Professor X is going to be a big part of this new world unlike the fox’s x-men world Professor X is the MCU is going to be a focal point of rights, of protection, of debate. Between him and MrFantastic and the Avengers whoever will be the voice of the Avengers going forward you needd to stand out. The X-Men can continue what the Avengers started and played through during the Phase one to three. But all the big hitters will be gone, and replaced.

So you will need something powerful to carry it and that is The X-Men Franchise under Disney. And moving away from a shared universe is not exactly what i mean – when it comes to the big story its focus should be on the x-men world but doesnt mean characters from all over the franchise could appear. Its just the focus shifting.

This is where i see the future of the MCU, it will still be the MCU but it will be more heavily focused on the x-men, and any story marvel releases outside of it would still fit into this world but would be more individual stories.

There is a future out there but it might not be the future you invision.

If Iron Man Movies was retold as if it was Batman

So as per my previous post. This is what a Batman film would be like it it used Ironman as a bases for a rebooted story FYI this is not a “they should make this film” this is just to show that if you totally rebooted Batman’s origin and updated what Batman is for the new age how someone like Batman could have an amazing Film Franchise

I titled this Batman: The Awakening.

Plot.

Bruce Wayne who has inherited the science tech contractor Wayne Enterprise from his father Thomas Wayne, is at a tech expo in Japan with his friend and body guard soon to join the Gotham Police Department Jim Gordon to demonstrate the new “Enhanced Tactical Suit” . After the demonstration, the convoy is ambushed and Bruce is kidnapped by The League Of Shadows, captured and imprisoned at the Leagues base “The Lazarus Pit” Dr.Crane, a fellow captive doctor, helps Bruce to concurs his fears and agrees to help him escape, The Leagues leader Raz Al Ghul offers Bruce freedom in exchange for building the tactical suitsfor the group, but he and Crane know that Raz will not keep his word.

Bruce and Crane secretly build a new type of tactical suit to aid in their escape. Although they keep the suit hidden almost to completion, the The League discover their hostages’ intentions and attack the workshop. Crane sacrifices himself to divert them while the suit fully charges. The armored Bruce battles his way out of the cave to find crane has been taken away to be killed, then burns the The Lazarus Pit in anger and flies away, crashing in the desert and destroying the suit. After being rescued by Jim Gordon, Bruce returns to Gotham and announces that his company will cease manufacturing tech for the government. Dr.Victor Fries his father’s old partner and the company’s manager, advises Bruce that this may ruin Wayne Enterprise and his father’s legacy. In his home workshop, Bruce builds a sleeker, more powerful version of his improvised armor suit as well as building a base of operations “The Batcave”. Though Fries requests details, a suspicious Bruce decides to keep his work to himself.

At a charity event held by Wayne Enterprise reporter Vikki Vale informs Bruce that his company’s tactical suits were recently delivered to the The League Of Shadows and are being used to attack Around the world, Bruce dons his new armor “Bat Suit” and travels to a small town where he tracks down some league members, where he saves the villagers. While flying home, Bruce is chased by two gotham police vehicles He reveals his secret identity to Jim Gordon over the phone in an attempt to end the pursuit. Meanwhile, the The League Of Shadows gather the pieces of Bruces prototype Bat suit and meet with Fries who has been trafficking the suits to criminals worldwide and has staged a coup to replace Bruce as Wayne Enterprises’ CEO by hiring the The League Of Shadows to kill him. In doing so Fries would be able to fund his research into cryogenics which Bruce’s father deemed a lost cause. He subdues Raz Al Ghul and has the rest of the group killed. Fries has a massive new suit reversed engineered using his cryogenic tech from the wreckage of the proto Bat Suit. Seeking to track his company’s illegal shipments, Bruce sends Rachel his personal assistant to hack into its database. She discovers that Fries hired the The League to kill Bruce, but the group reneged when they realized they had a direct route to Bruces weapons. Rachel meets with Agent Jon Johnson of J.U.S.T.I.C.E an meta human agency to inform him of Fries activities.

Fries scientists cannot duplicate Bruce’s exact suit programs so Fries ambushes Bruce at Wayne manor and takes the one from his suit. Bruce manages to get to his original programme now called “Alfred” to replace it. Rachel and several Justice agents attempt to arrest Fries, but he dons his “Mr Freeze” suit and attacks them. Bruce now as Batman fights Mr Freeze but is outmatched without his new Programme to run his suit at full capacity. The fight carries Batman and Mr Freeze to the top of the Wayne Enterprise building, and Bruce instructs Rachel to overload the power grid powering the building. This unleashes a massive electrical surge that causes Victor Fries and his Mr Freeze Suit to malfunction to fall into the near by lake the cryogenic cooler explodes freezing Victor effectively killing him.. The next day, at a press conference, Bruce defies suggestions from Justice Department and publicly admits to being “Batman.”

In a post credit scene Aquaman visits Bruce at home, telling him tha Batman is not “the only hero in the world”, and explaining that he wants to discuss the Justice League

The Problem With Batman On Film

The Problem With Batman On Film

Every now and then i look at a franchise especially ones that have failed at reboots and compaire them to successful reboots. Now that statement “Successful Reboots” seems like an almost Oxymoron given the history surrounding the notion of Rebooting a franchise. 

When you have an iconic character and multiple directors get a change to give their version of that character there is usually an angle, a clever look into a different side to something we thought we already knew. But once all those Angles have been exhausted there is simply nothing else to say about the character without it becoming just a cash cow.

For example… The character of Superman struggles to have a decent reboot because their is no way to really tell his story without covering old grounds. Hes an alien who looks like a human but has abilities that makes him like a super human… a superman. In my personal opinion everything you ever needed to be said about Superman stems from the Christopher Reeves run at portraying the character on film, that being said their was two notable exceptions which i refer to the “Louise and Clark tv series and the Smallvile tv series” because this pretty much covers superman at every angle and tv shows do play an important part in this on screen character.

This is why The Hulk has never been able to have a solo successful franchise movie, its been done, the only good use you have for the character is for him to appear in other franchises which they did in Avengers and other marvel property. Look at The Hulk film and The Incredible Hulk films they added nothing to the character as we seen it all from the made for tv movies that was made… or was it a tv show.

Anyway Batman! The problem we are now facing with Batman is that we have seen him at nearly every angle, We saw the introduction of a classic hero “The Tim Burton/and the other director” 4 film bonanza – we saw the sculted origin story of christopher nolans saga, we saw a terrible Justice League variant – Not Ben Afflecks fault more to do with the problem of putting a dark hero mixed into a ligh heros story. I’ll explain that later. We have gotham basically populating Gotham with its ethos. Whats left…? 

I saw the trailer to the Patterson Batman – to me, he looks fine as batman but as Bruce Wayne it doesnt feel right. I know why it doesnt feel right. The movie has fallen into the “DC Trying to do something like Marvel but this ultra-realistic connected universe is falling apart” scenario just doesnt work. 

But then i thought to myself, Well how do you make Batman interesting when everything has been done about him.

Simple, change his origin, change when its set, change the old style of what batman means and look at the world today and say to yourself how would Batman exist in a world today if it happened.

Its an interesting concept, you know who did it first? Marvel with Iron Man? the film was no surprise gonna be a hit not just because of its casting but also because they new had to put Ironman into the modern world. You could totally buy a Tony Stark doing what he did because it felt real. 

So what i did was, i looked at Wikipedia and took the plot of Iron Man and with a few creative tweeks changed the characters to Batman characters and ended up with a batman film that not only works, its completly different but very relivant.

Im not going to post the whole plot but i will try and give you the summary.

Bruce Wayne inherits his father business after his death, he is kidnapped by the league of shadows but escapes building a “Prototype Batman suit” Upon returning to Gotham he finds that his business partner working on Wayne technology “Dr.Victor Fries” tried to take control of the company so he could fund his research by the kidnapping of bruce wayne. However this war between business rivials leads to Victor going after Bruce and thus trying to steal his Batman suit design. Victor builds his “Mr.Freeze” suit that he could then sell to further his business venture into cryogenics. Bruce adopts the mantel of Batman and stops him.

Its basically the plot of Iron Man 1 but look at how cool Batman would be if we changed the narrative of how batman works. A modern Batman, a playboy millionare company owner who uses his wealth to undo wrong doings in his own company. Plus it gives Mr.Freeze a chance to come to the big screen in a way that you could actually think… “Well this isnt a giant silver tinsel christmas tree running around”

Further more, iron man 2 and 3 gives a even more exiciting way to introduce currently known characters in a very different light. The Joker as being an ex-Wayne enterprise employee. The Riddler being rejected years ago for help with his project only for it to come back and in the 3rd movie to create chaos. 

My point being is that Batman needs to shed its old and step into the new. Were not asking for Batman of the future/Batman Beyond – which they should make. But we need something that hasnt already been done. gotham is no longer gothic, technology is king in this current times so use it. Use the problems of this world to voice how batman would stand within it. and maybe just maybe if DC just saw the formula for success like Marvel did then we would of had a better Justice League creation.

If you want me to write out my full plot for a rebooted Batman film based on alot more complexities let me know in the comments and i will make it my next post.

So… it’s been a while

Yep, it has been quite a few years.. minus 2020 but nobody is counting this year. As time progresses and nobody seems to know what day of the week it is. Hence the Jim Carrey mood chart to remind you how you used to feel on certain days of the week.

Where do I begin. So I have a million thoughts to share with you all so expect more blogs. Once I can be bothered to write them. But wow 2017 to now a lot has happened.

So basically when I started Planet Nerdy it was a way to express my thoughts on how wrong the world is and here is how to fix it. These days nobody would listen anyway. But over the past three-four years I have had some challenging and tough times presented to me. Almost one after another. But maybe 2020 is a bizarre gift. A change to change all changes with handsanitizrrs at the ready.

If we ever go back to normal them f n ell there is a lot of backlog to watch. So to give you and idea of what my next post is gonna be about. Well let me give you the title.

Batman movie franchise. Do we really need another Batman movie and does anyone actually buy Patterson as Bruce Wayne? It doesn’t feel right and guess what . Here’s how to fix it.

2017

Looking back to when I first started this blog I didn’t really think I’d keep it going this long, after 5 years I realised I loved writing articles for this. But the past few years I haven’t had much time. 

Now I do so expect more articles coming soon.

Bring Back Community

When something is done right, don’t cancel it and listen to the actors. 

Admittedly I have only started watching Community but forgive me I have only had Netflix for two years and I’m glad I only just discovered it because I’ve watched a lot of shows. Alas I’ve seen all 6 season and there will be no more???

See the thing is, whenever a show is done great America has a habit of axing the really great ones and extending ones that should of finished already beyond a logical point. You only have to look at tv show friends to understand this point, this show was great but 10 season of will Ross and Rachel get back together… It had gone on too long. But that show had a logical ending point. 

Then I look at Big Bang theory, how I met your mother… All these shows which were great are now over done to the point were rewatching the same scenarios just new seasons. Yet the networks keep these shows running. Well how I met your mother ended a few years ago. But that is another case of not letting that show go. 

With community it’s different, it’s construct was brilliant and showed that people of all ages could hang out and have fun. Then the righting went weird. See you had a brilliant case and how they chose to develop them was sort of shocking. To the point Chevy chase left the show because of his characters development. I don’t blame him. He was one of the funniest elements of the show and they turned him into a villain the others wanted to ignore. Such a waste. 

The first season was great, you had Jeff who acted as the cool character of the group and shown he is also intelligent then they decided he’s going to be an emotional wreck one minute and on some occasions he acts like an idiot and not in the cool way he did before but in a vain narcissistic way. Slowly they were making him less cool. 

The only two characters who were great throughout was Troy & Abid but even in season four they messed with the dynamic by making a Troy Bretta relationship that just seemed uneasy. 

And the rest of the cast they just kind of changed to suit the story.

Ok a lot of negatives why would I want this show to return? 

Well it’s simple, this show could of been excellent but you need to go back to the start. When everything worked. This show hasn’t had a logical ending and you need to bring back Troy and Pierce… You could easily explain Pierces ressurection via some method like he wasn’t actually dead. 

We need shows like this, like Hannibal and so many more that got cancelled when studios just wanna make other less funny shows a syndication. 

Your research isn’t the demographic – we are the demographic
