As for the new show...yeah, it ain't so good. Aside from the weaknesses regarding storytelling and whatever, the show is typical of what we're seeing too much of nowadays: folks altering source material to suit their political agendas. In other words, woke trash. Problem is, you can't bring up such criticisms without sensitive people accusing you of racism, among other bullshit.
Yeah, and it's another reason why I won't watch that show. I'm getting fucking fed-up of that woke shit, it's everywhere. Being force-fed with that, no thanks.
The perfect (worst) example I've heard about these past months was Netflix with their Resident Evil series, I laughed as soon as I saw some photos of Wesker.
This attack on wokeness does always come down to flat out intolerance. Words are deceiving and are helping a bunch of people smooth out the ugly truth of their emotions. What do you define by "woke" and if you say "pushing of a left leaning political agenda" (which parts?) keep going down that rabbit hole and distill what the wokeness of the show is. It will come down to there are some black and gay people in it.
