Everything is connected. Nothing is also connected.
Интересный пост на тамблере про проблемы Малека (здесь), местами сильно не согласна, но есть отдельные хорошие моменты:
2. Lack of screentime
If you’re not a malec fan or simply don’t care enough about them to want equality for them, the go to comment is; “this show is not about Malec”. Granted you got me there. But that doesn’t justify the lack of screentime. Now Todd has planned himself in the corner that tough choices have to be made
They only have so much minutes bla bla bla, BULLSHIT. Todd simply has different priorities. Every ep in S2B has started with “My name Clary Fray”-
Let’s be real, that is atleast a good minute of airtime that gets spend on shit the episode doesn’t need.
He can’t say he believes screentime should go to Clary, Simon and Jace even if the episode could easily miss the scene since it adds nothing, so the answer is even golden scenes have to be cut. Don’t get mad please, it’s a hard job….
Ehum NO, it really really isn’t. It’s about pacing, which sucks in this show, it’s about priorities which in this show don’t focus on Magnus, Alec, Luke or the rest. It’s about not adding more characters to an all ready full show.
They make the weirdest choices when it comes to malec, the scenes are short even when the moments are important, because everything else is apparently more important
, hey not my words anymore, they are officially Todd’s now.

3. The equality issue
Arguments like “this isn’t the malec show” are fucking rude. Equality has nothing to do with turning Shadowhunters into the Malec show. If you believe this to be case, then you are not an ally and are (sub)conciously homophobic. Some lgbtq+ people even believe this to be true and honey, sorry to tell you but that is some internalised homophobia you’ve got going on there.
Equality simply means an equal treatment. Not give them 50% of the show’s time and Clace the other 50% cause well, there is also Izzy, Simon, Luke and Maia. This is not about some weird ass division of time. It’s about the Quality of the time they getting and the imbalance compared to the heterosexual pairings.
... They are catering to you, with the bare minimum because well, you will accept it, praise it, maybe complain but hey we’ll watch again next week, cause TODD keeps making promises it will be better. Will it though? No really? Cause if you keep watching, you keep defending the show, you keep having a whiplash from going between “OMG I CAN’T EVEN” to “WHAT IS THIS SHIT” why do they have to change how they treat Malec. Equality is a serious issue, but an issue this show doesn’t take seriously. And apart from a tweet, nothing indicates this will change in the future.

4. Lies from TPTB
... then there was the MalecMania. Oh Boy was the fandom hyped and with good reasons and Oh Boy was it a big let down to the point the fandom roared with anger. Then he promised he would work on it, this was during the filming of 2x13/2x14. Not all scripts had been written yet and they definitely weren’t filmed yet.
So why is he tweeting that he’s working on it now not three weeks ago. Don’t you mean you worked on it, keep a look out for this improvement? That is what you promised in the first place. But now this promise seems to have been moved to S3. And when S3A doesn’t deliver will he move the promise to S3B? He is a master at baiting the fans with Malec and for some reason the fans seem to not comprehend that they are being baited. So he can problably move it forever and nobody would object, cause he promises too change people! Give the show the benefit of the doubt….
Okay? But seriously for how long?!
And how many lies does he have to tell before he loose his credibility. Mind you a lot of tweets ended up being deleted from his timeline as well, things spoken without thought and no intention to realise these comments.

The show needs to address serious issues with the gentle care they deserve instead of using them for drama plotdevices. Alec’s suicide was a big thing, but thrown aside just as easily. Magnus his traumas are also pushed aside somewhat for storylines that require less screentime and care but are given double of it. Even Izzy who tried to kill her brother hasn’t really dealt with what drove her. The show touches on a lot of things with the other characters only to never really expand on it, for the sake of drama. And it needs to stop doing that.
The show needs to start showing things instead of telling me things. I don’t want to hear Izzy went to meetings, I want to see her there, so I can hear why she felt the need to take Yin Fen and I can see her struggle.The same goes for Alec and Magnus, a lot is told but never shown. I’m tired of hearing about it, I want to see it. If I have to see every single thing about Clary, Simon and Jace, why can I not see these important moments from the other main characters. Especially if they are so linked to the storylines they are suppossedly telling us.

As for how the fandom acts, they rant and then watch the show hoping to not boycott it and lose Malec. Cause they are still important, with the whole stupid directing, writing and homophobia they get. Everyone hopes they will change things at least for the money. Everyone wants to believe 218 is gonna be good and they will get equality, even if the writers threw some scenes there to please the fans and not because they realized their shitty actions. They reacted awful after 207 and they had time to change things for 215 if they cared, but they still prioritized the love triangle.
They can do better, but they will not, unless they fear losing the show and something tells me they know they most likely will get season 4. Cause after 207 it was so evident they knew they had season 3 in their hands.

@темы: Shadowhunters, think of me when you shoot your arrows, мысли вслух

Если мне гугл правильно перевел, то вот это просто в точку:

William Ulfvaldr, ага, это про то, что нужно про серьезные темы говорить нормально, с уделением им должного внимания и экранного времени, а не использовать их только ради драмы.
Мне особенно еще понравилось про всю ситуацию с непрекращающимися обещаниями Тодда, исполнение которых он каждый раз перекладывает на будущие серии, а фандом иногда радуется, иногда ругается, но все равно смотрит. И руководство это устраивает, потому что аудитория не редеет несмотря ни на что, следовательно и менять ничего не надо, можно спокойно продолжать кормить людей "завтраками". Что, возможно, если бы они висели на волоске с продлением-непродлением, вели бы себя по-другому.
Ну и старая песня о все том же: недостаток экранного времени. Что темп слишком быстрый, что странные приоритеты относительно персонажей, что продолжают добавлять все больше оригинальных и просто новых персонажей и сюжетных линий, когда не могут и не успевают прописать уже то, что есть.

Возникает вопрос - зачем? :facepalm:
странные приоритеты относительно персонажей
Да, мы будем смотреть 10 минут ходящие по кругу диалоги, но сцену малек обрежем :susp:
с непрекращающимися обещаниями Тодда
Которые нужно всегда делить на 10 :-D
