Jo, 21, from Suffolk, England and recently ENGAGED! (i am still an emotional wreck!)
I rarely post original stuff, unless I feel like being personal/there is a big event happening.
Amongst other things I am a Nerdfighter, Wholockian, Bro, BeardLover, Homie, Nob4Lyf, Audience member, Klitznerd, Bich and many more so if you are curious just ask me!
OTHER PLACES TO FIND ME:
If you want to stalk me on other places then there you can find me on PokeFarm (username Jana Kennedy) and Skype (username Joanne_vs)
I survived the Fall Out Boy hiatus 2009 - 2013
Top left: A brilliant woman working to bring down an oppressive political party from within; struggling to put right a terrible tragedy from her past she was wrongly blamed for.
Top right: The man who saved his community from the zombie apocalypse and won’t ever compromise on its safety.
Centre: terrorist / freedom fighter / a true Prophet / manipulative double agent? We must find out!
Bottom left: the man who kept his community together, and stopped people giving up at what looked like the end of the word.
Bottom right: the young man whose life as he knew it ended one night, and in the face of horrors repeatedly risked his life to protect his people.
These are the villains of In The Flesh. They have real motives. They’re good at what they do. They always try to do the right thing. You’d only have to skew your perspective by one or two degrees and they would be the heroes.
The depth and ambiguities the writers and actors give these characters, when they could be so easy to simply hate, is just one of the many reasons this show deserves another series.
Its portrayal of discrimination is one of the most realistic I’ve ever seen in a piece of media (specifically when it comes to homophobia & mental illness)
Even when dealing with such serious subject matter it manages to strike a balance between tragedy and comedy so it’s not a continuous bombardment of depression & darkness
Several well written female characters. This seems like a baseline requirement for any show but it’s ridiculous how many shows and movies never achieve this. But on itf we have Amy; who is given her own narrative that doesn’t revolve around the main character, Jem; who we clearly see struggle with PTSD but is never seen as weak because of this, Maxine Martin; who could have been portrayed as 100% evil with no redeeming characteristics, but instead is a charismatic, complex woman who won’t let anything get in the way of her achieving her goals, and several other characters with memorable personalities.
A main character who is queer. LGBTQ+ representation is increasing in the media but all too often these characters are merely token secondary/minor characters or their entire character revolves around their sexual orientation. This is not the case with this show!
There is too much that can be covered in this show and so many questions that need answered for it to be cancelled now. It’s done so much good with just a mere nine episodes, think how far it could go with double that amount (or even more). We could discover more about the lives of other undead people, the changing opinions of the public, watch Simon & Kieren’s relationship evolve, FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH AMY DYER.
BASICALLY I’LL PROBABLY GO MAD IF I NEVER FIND ANY OF THIS OUT. THERE IS JUST TOO MUCH POTENTIAL IN THIS SHOW AND IT WOULD BE TRAGIC IF IT WERE WASTED.
remember how her insecurities (which she did have, because doesn’t everyone?) had nothing to do with her appearance and were more about her artistic failures, her ability to be a mom, her “annoying quirks” she thought Jackson would get tired of?
remember how even though she was often clumsy forgetful and disorganized she was still portrayed as a competent adult? remember how her decision to get married and have kids didn’t diminish her career as a master chef and entrepreneur? remember how she was a bubbly and funny supporting character without being shallow or unintelligent?
I think about this every time I see Melissa McCarthy
