Coach Markus Launching That Fire on King Bee
Great confessional as usual but one of your emailers (King Bee) made me unexpectedly Hulk out! Rarely, has a fan email had me so pissed off!!! What immediately dropped the match in the gas was his first comment; “The fans of this show are entitled to their opinion but holy shit their opinion is wrong!”. Since when did he become an expert on everyone else’s opinion? An opinion (by definition) is someone’s judgement not necessarily based on fact. Rog didn’t necessarily like the Jesus scene. His opinion. I thought is was fine. My opinion. Others thought it was great! Their opinion. You see how this is supposed to work?
“This whole show is a lame dick attempt at building flash, style and hype without any solid foundation.” Normally this wouldn’t bother me except for the fact that the author of the book Neil Gaiman has either helped write and/or given his approval on the scripts for the show. So, the “solid foundation” that is supposedly missing has helped create the fucking show! Plus, the creator or foundation or whatever you want to call him, cites this episode as one of his favorites.
Tangent Alert!!! (but stick with me)
There are 3 things that make me an awesome football coach. 1) I love kids 2) I love football and study the game 3) I made it to the highest level in my craft (Fly Eagles Fly) But every year, there are parents who think they know more than me. Only want to complain about how I SHOULD be coaching but never want to grab a whistle and get involved.
There are 3 things that make Neil Gaiman an incredible author. 1) He brought notoriety and relevance to a niche genre (Goth) 2) His Sandman comics helped turn comic books into “reading material”, not just kid’s books 3) His 100+ literary awards make him a master at his craft.
I am sure The King Bee is writing some kick-ass novel, that will win tons of awards, be turned into a TV Series and will unite all opinions on its greatness. Maybe they’ll even be a podcast about it. The funny thing is, I agreed with some (not all) of his points but I always get seriously annoyed when someone TELLS me what my opinion should be.
Us usual, you guys are the Shat! But that’s just MY opinion.
