I have been thinking a lot about the TV shows about ‘White Men who solve problems BUT HE HAS PROBLEMS TOO!’ see: House, Lie To Me, Castle, Numb3rs, Chuck, The Mentalist, Shark etc (there are so many).
These shows are RIDDLED with problems so deep and hideous I’m not even going to talk about them BUT…
Something new occurred to me today and I can’t believe I have only JUST realized this, a lot of the main characters are single fathers to teenage daughters.
Every single one of these WMWSPBHHPT either has a daughter and an absent mother or is single with no children (in the case of the Mentalist they get the best of both worlds by refrigerating his wife and daughter, hurray).
Where the sons at?
Is it because the only stories being told about young men and older men is one of surpassing/overcoming the latter? Where as with a teenage girl, there are countless opportunities to reaffirm the father figure’s/male control and dominance over women?
Am I over thinking it?
Something just feels really really… icky.
uuuuuuuuuugh Castle… UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH *rolls eyes all the way out of my head and into space*
Castle is doing a bondage episode… stahp… just stahp… it’s already dead… iiiitt’sssss alreaaady ddddeeeeeeeeaaaaaadddddd!
NOOOOOO NOOOOOOOOOOO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! CASTLE DID AN EPISODE BASED ON MY FAVOURITE FIIIIILMMM! NOOOOOOOOOOO GET YOUR FILTHY MITTS OFF!
There is a special kind of acutely bewildering disappointment that is reserved for when you know a musical so well and are singing along to it and you’re about to belt out that great line and it’s building and it’s building BUT YOU COME IN TOO EARLY BECAUSE THIS IS A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT RECORDING TO THE ONE THAT YOU GREW UP ON AND YOU CAN’T FIND THAT ORIGINAL RECORDING ANYWHERE AND YOU ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT THIS MISTAKE AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL YOU DIE!
So… maybe I should cut back on tumblr.
I wanted to see the bottom of my garden from my window and instead of you know, moving my head, my finger started to scroll down.
Hu… turns out I’ve forgotten how to draw…
What even are people?
