I HATE BBC.
Clue as to why: I watched the Season 2 finale of their Robin Hood series last night.
First of all, how dare you, BBC?
Secondly…HOW. DARE. YOU.
I’m thinking out some posts about the show at the moment (because I do love it, despite my frustration at certain parts), things like a review of each season (like I did for Combat!) and a list of stuff/characters I love and all that jazz, but for right now, I need to rant. I really do.
OKAY. Rant time. In the first place, I hate BBC for creating all these bright, brilliant, beautiful and then sending them on their merry way toward doom, destruction, and depression. WHY? It tears me up inside – not to mention the characters. There’s Will and Djaq declaring their love for each other, thinking they only have a few hours left to live. (In fact, they ALL think they only have a few hours left to live which makes everything emotional and awful. And it doesn’t help that all these wonderful characters are played by amazing actors.) Or just…I don’t know! Everything about this show is tinged with sadness, basically!
And then once they do get to the Holy Land, Will and Djaq STAY BEHIND. Which they totally wouldn’t have done, in my opinion. And Marian dies which is awful and terrible and I’m tearing up just thinking about it. Stupid BBC. I cannot get over these feels. I’ll never get over them. AND CARTER DIES. Carter, who wasted so much of his life eaten up with hatred and the need for revenge and finally got over it and went back to serve the king, but instead gets killed by the sheriff and he doesn’t even get a death scene! Everyone else gets a death scene (or at least you see the characters grieving for them, like when Tom died). But not Carter.
Everything about the finale is terrible, and Season 3 (which I started today) does nothing to fix that, what with the entrance of Kate (UGH) and that horrid first episode where Robin yells at everyone and accuses Allan of being a traitor again (which reminded me of Allan’s death and made me cry) and nothing feels right. Not with Marian and Will (my favorite character!) and Djaq gone. The gang is broken up and Kate and Tuck certainly can’t make that right.
Don’t mind me. I’m just ranting and probably not making much sense either. Sorry.
If you’ve seen this show, let’s cry together. If you haven’t, DON’T EVER WATCH IT.
