The Wheel of Time S02E05 720p WEB-DL x265
There's a beautiful painting hanging on the wall. It's been admired by tens of millions of people. The painting depicts men and women working together on an epic scale and there's not very many paintings like it. A corporation decides to recreate the painting and so they hire someone who professes to love that painting. Once he gets the job, the hireling decides he needs to change the painting. He rejects the classic work of art and picks up a paintbrush. What he creates to replace the original resembles the original painting only by name. He removes all colour from the painting, instead painting the entire thing one tone. All shading and depth of field are removed in favor of flatness. The subject of painting changes. The interior logic of the painting shifts and no longer makes sense thematically or practically. This hireling revels in causing pain to those who enjoyed the original. He even plans on removing subjects from the original painting and anticipates enjoyment at the cries of outrage from actual fans. This new painting isn't like the original - and most people knew to expect that. What isn't expected is that this new painting actively disrespects the original while being a painting of extremely low merit on it's own. If you're going to remake a masterpiece, at least make sure the new painter has a modicum of skill because otherwise you'll be left trying to claim a rudimentary, primitive scratching on canvas is a masterpiece.
