The “child with toys” analogy was the nice one. This is the less-nice one.
Steven Moffat is the kind of self-professed fan that acts like he knows better than showrunners of old. I’m sure many of you know fans like that from your other fandoms. Hell, you could BE fans like that from your other fandoms. I guess I’m kinda slipping into that role myself though, so I’m not gonna judge you for it.
But objectively-speaking, it is not always in a show’s best interest to bend over backwards to cater to some of their fans. Shows suffer when that happens. I’m not gonna name names, that’s up to you to do.
From where I’m sitting though, Moffat caters to no one but himself and if you’re on board, great, if not, fuck you.
…Also, just wanna apologize to the two followers I lost from the last post. And to the next ones that go after this, I’m sorry for this too. Still love the show! Agree to disagree?
