Clinton supporters are like really obsessive Buffy
fans. They don't understand how everyone isn't watching their show. It's because it's about a girl, isn't it? Dude, there's a MESSAGE in this one. The "high school is hell" metaphor is a good starting place, but look at the amazing ways that was expanded upon. There's a clear five-season arc. There's a plan
. This show single-handedly (okay, with Dawson's Creek
) supported the WB for YEARS. When you take everything else away, their heroine is right there, simultaneously being a strong character and a strong female role model. This show not getting an Emmy nom is a TRAVESTY.
Obama supporters are like Browncoats. They can't believe the way that TPTB at FOX can move around the schedule, screwing with Firefly
's chances of success. Haven't people paid attention? This show is amazing. It's a new and inventive melding of genres that's never been done before. The writing is new and inspired, and there's a sense of fighting against outrageous odds, and yet succeeding through honor and virtue. You can't blame the fans for being militant supporters, especially not by the time they actually get a MOVIE out of the deal; they have done the impossible, and that makes them mighty.
(For the sake of everyone involved, I am not going to explain how Nielsen ratings, time shifting, cities not getting the WB, and illegal downloading can translate to the political process. YOU ARE TOTALLY WELCOME.)Context
