Hannibal (TV series)

Mason: Hello my name is Mason Verger. I have peeled off the entire bottom half of my face yet I can still perfectly pronounce every word, even though my inability to pronounce certain letters was directly mentioned in the source material. This is my story.

re your tags: I obviously can’t watch it but the summary does talk about “grown men and women”

yeah, ive read it. its been a while since ive followed a bunch of dramah about it, but im finding it ssssomewhat safe to say the part about the ladies is included to turn it into somewhat less of a sausage fest?

afaik (and as far as im able to remember to begin with, which aint really all that far) theres been shittons of discussions about this and not all of these were supportive and/or enthusiastic, pretty much like in all other fandoms anyways. theres been so much shit going on ive literally spend the last 15 minutes (….why?) trying to find a post that more or less sums it up, but theres just too much of it and it probably intertwines a lot with the already existing issues and recurring fandom fights anyways. 

The film was received mixed reception from the fandom and negative reception from critics, and some felt the film focused too much on certain aspects of fandom and ignored other facets, including the lack of criticism of the fandom by others, and the significant portion of female adult fans, occasionally named “pegasisters”. Other fans felt that the documentary made the concept of being a brony mean that one had to be “treated like a misunderstood taboo to the rest of the world”, and countered that they have openly expressed their appreciation of the show without any backlash from friends and family. […] 

Mike Sauve of Exclaim! states that film, while showing some of the more touching aspects of the fandom, “plays like an infomercial for [My Little Pony], fawning over its creator and voice talent”, and that it does not address the subculture of bronies who sexualize the cartoon.

its probably the shortest, but most descriptive summary there is, or at least the shortest and most descriptive summary thats easily found (on wikipedia, that is). eventually a documentary about basically everything and its respective mom can be well-done, but that naturally depends on which aspects youre trying to cover and how objective youre attempting to be about them, which the (mixed) reviews dont portrait as too well-excecuted. of course as a fan youd like to see your favourite show to be portrayed in positive ways, its probably some sort of natural reflex (hey, who wouldnt automatically want to do that when its about your favourite thing?), but producers of documentaries about those fandoms should imho try their respective best to get a certain distance between the topic and themselves. sometimes people dont seem to be aware that youre able to criticize and praise a thing at the same time and while you dont necessarily need to make a 100% objective, scientific report on the state of bronies and their ~culture~ (its called fandom, get over it), it might have been wise to include problematic parts about the thing as well. 

eventually it all depends on what your target demoghrapic is supposed to be, and if you claim to make a documentary about a thing, but leave out certain (problematic) aspects and people participating in the thing your target demographic will change from “general audience” to “the people that are featured most of the time and those who wish to hear positive remarks on the thing”. this is absolutely not a surprising turn of events and you either feel fine doing a documentary that makes a lot of people feel good about themselves, but lacks a critical approach, or you sit down your ass and make the changes that are needed to turn it into a product more suited for the more critical audiences as well. 

tl;dr: everything went as expected. 

with that said, female fans might have been left out, because the target audience is supposed to be female anyways, albeit not adults? regardless, if you claim to make it about male as well as female fans, include equal amounts of both.

Yeah I couldn’t be arsed to dig further into this, the title alone amused me well enough

ugh speaking of documentaries

I watched one about zombies a few days ago and it was titled “Zombies - die Wahrheit über die Untoten”

I kinda expected a little history lesson with the roots in voodoo and then how portrayal changed in popular media which WAS touched upon but the main feature of this “documentary” somehow was fear mongering on how a “zomie killer virus” could potentially ttly happen

so in the end it was just “omg much new sickness every year” fear mongering which had nearly nothing to do with zombies but used them as a platform

"The HIV-1 eradication approach faces several significant challenges before the technique is ready for patients, Khalili says. The researchers must devise a method to deliver the therapeutic agent to every single infected cell. Finally, because HIV-1 is prone to mutations, treatment may need to be individualized for each patient’s unique viral sequences."

and here’s the crux
