honestly we're 4 episodes in and only 4 more to go and possibly have to wait till 2021 for season 3, like the 2 year wait for season 2.
um im not sure this is everything im finding wrong so far but im going to list it anyways and tell me your thoughts if you'd like, just please dont insult me or write responses that make no sense cause that wont get us nowhere
first off and this is the main reason I am mad, this season is apparently about war.....we waited 2 years for this war but its just more talking and recruiting for war, we have very little action. Like these so called gods, why cant they go into combat and fight? That is literally what I expected the premise to do, actually fight. This is coming off as more of a political debate about why you should choose each side, im sorry but thats not fun to watch, at least not for me it isnt
two, there are plot holes im sure, like im not even going to get into why I really hate the mythology cause im sure I will face backlash simply cause it was in the book and they incorporated that but a plot hole that came to mind, why did mr world betray tech boy? I dont get it, if anything mr world should be going after new media cause she was going to allign with argus, all tech boy was try to fix the mess and he just got betrayed, like i dont get it. If someone can explain to me what I am missing, please feel free to. Why would mr world who maybe all powerful but still has only 2 gods working for him, not he only has one, thats pathetic. There is no reason that betrayal should have happened. Im kinda wanting tech boy to get his revenge on mr world now.
i still dont like the old gods, wednesday, chernabog and nancy are flat out douchebags, mr ibis, osiris, the jinn, iktomi, mama ji and bilquis are useless, mr wood is nowhere to be seen, they are as useless as the new gods but at least with the new gods im not getting that vibe of they are evil, they need to be stopped, at least I'd be able to understand the old gods POV, but no, its just wednesday is a jealous old prick and is mad people in general dont care for him anymore. Im still team new gods btw to anyone who is asking me but im not impressed by them at all this season.
what happened to mr town? Wasnt he supposed to be a recurring character or was he killed by laura when she kicked that metal door down on him and the train blew up? Is this because of the convoluted drama that happened BTS in the writers room for season 2? Maybe he was intended to be recurring and they changed their minds.
these gods arent acting godlike at all. Dont get me wrong, the best scene IMO and it was a boss move is when mr world got his revenge by unleashing his hunter mr town on the old gods to assinate them, that was cool. But it begs the question, and goes back to my earlier point, if these gods are so powerful, why cant they just snap their fingers or wave their hand or whatever and be done with it and win this war? What is preventing them from getting into actual hand to hand combat?
the lauras coin storyline takes up a big chunk of this show so far and is still looking to get resolved just so mad can get his coin back. Like I like mad and I like laura but this is ridiculous, what does this even have to do with the overall plot that isnt even that great?, they are supplementing it with this coin story and its boring. You know, maybe if the gods went looking for this coin for luck to help them take control of everything, then I'd understand, but that isnt what is happening.
and finally, i dont care if its from the book or not, why is wedneday being so mysterious and secretive to shadow? Why cant he just tell him why he really wants him, I mean really wants him? Even shadow knew last episode that wednesday was hiding the truth. And I dont need to read the book, I can already tell you that more than likely wednesday is shadows actual dad and shadow is a demigod but he is more powerful than either side and they want to use him to take over and win the war. Im not saying I am 100% right but I am pretty sure I am 99% right.
I get why you’re frustrated with season 2. I’m little anxious to see more action thIs season, I thought the old gods had the country by the balls when the spring was taken. The best answer I can on why they don’t simply just do away with the new gods with the snap of their fingers is because of the loss their followers over the years, which left them nearly depleted of worship. Therefore, they couldn’t simply do as they please as before in the past. Besides, all the old gods we’ve seen are not all gods of war or death like Wednesday, mama hi, and chernobog, so fighting probably wouldn’t do them much good.
i kinda get that but IMO it shouldnt be called a war then, it should be a war of words, i was expecting this to be an action packed show and its not so far
Believe me, you not the only one who wants to see some action
thats just the main thing that makes me upset but there are other things that makes this currently my least favorite fantasy show on tv
Yea the lack action is everyone’s main complaint on, but I’m enjoying it since I like mythology, but supernatural helps me get through the week.
i dont even like the mythology though, its such a convoluted mess
Please keep it civil.
That was civil. I stated simple facts. If one refuses to embrace characterization and story telling then this isnt the show for them. All of his complaints are tied into two factors, a lack of instant gratification and parts that are there due to major future plot points.
^^That's fine to discuss as long as you both stay away from personal insults and attacks.
