Monarch Legacy of Monsters S01E09 1080p WEB-DL DD5.1 x265
It seems that most TV show producers hired the same Gen Z or millenials than mainstream media did and they only know the mindset of california people who have no personality, suffer from some form of anxiety / depression and, more or less, have an insuferrable character. I don't know what's going on, honestly. Soon we'll have lead characters with a comfort peacock and they'll complain for 20 minutes, on screen, to a starbucks employee because they are out of oat milk. I'm not an American, so I have never witnessed such things, but I can imagine. The TV show is not bad in the way that the story is good, you learn more about what happened with the monsters and all, the filmography is decent, CGI okay-ish, the scenario ok, but it's kinda ruined by the lead character and the ones around her. It might be because most gen Z actors, besides a few exceptions, seem completely interchangeable, to the point that you could switch one between two episodes, and you wouldn't even notice. It feels like today's acting is like what Kpop is to music or what McDonalds is to food. It's bland, uninspired, unimaginative, and totally forgettable. It's too bad, because it could be a 10/10 TV show, especially since Apple TV produced a masterpiece like For All Mankind and very good TV shows like Foundation, Silo and severance (all have actual actors as main characters tho) and also because some TV shows starring only Gen Zs are absolute bomb, like the outer banks (pure gold), or even the wilds and yellowjackets (where only a couple characters are annyoing on a total of 20ish). It's time that millenials / Gen Z TV show writers / employees realize that the vast majority of the world's population doesn't need a therapy animal, doesn't have 10 type of anxieties, isn't unsure of who they are and doesn't have daddy issues. For that, it would be a good thing to start producing stuff outside of California, so that Netflix, Apple and Amazon aren't an echo chamber of a minority of the population. Kudos to Netflix and Amazon tho for releasing stuff produced in a lot of countries (india, S. Korea, France, Brazil, Spain, etc...), where you can find many quality TV shows with actual decent & likeable characters that you can relate to.
