    I just finished watching BBC America’s Copper, and its reason for cancellation was total bullshit. 

    “After 23 episodes, with Lincoln dead and the nation starting to heal, it seems a fitting moment to conclude this American story.”

    Okay, NO. First of all, you’re lying because you had some serious cliffhangers in the final moments so you obviously intended a third season. Second, if you really wanted to stand by that statement and end it where it was, it should have ended with the three main characters returning to New York or on the train. The last 5 minutes should have been scrapped.

    and THIRD - Lincoln’s death and a nation “starting” to “heal” is the time to end a story??? No fucking way. These characters have a fuckton more healing to do and a fuckton more shit to get wrapped up in (which they were in those 5 minutes, especially Corky). The plight of African Americans, both born free and freed slaves, the prejudices against Irish immigrants, the corruption of politics and society both during and post-war…there is SO much more and it DOES NOT END with the start of Reconstruction!!!!!! If anything, that’s something to explore! Something we don’t talk about!!!

    Ugh. Sorry. I really liked this show and I recommend it. I loved the history in it and all the different people and the different types of drama. I’m just so mad that it ended.

    If you can’t find a place on your blog for Patrick Stewart in a bathtub dressed like a lobster, then your blog probably doesn’t deserve such majesty anyway.

    Imagine this:
    Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
    Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
    Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.

    Imagine this:
    Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
    Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
    Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
    In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
    Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
    In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
    In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.

    Imagine this:
    Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
    Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
    Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.

    Imagine this:
    Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.

    Imagine this:
    Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
    who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
    and swallows men whole.
