I got lucky & found them pre-game. Airports would often have them at eye level when I was younger. Same for the Metro series actually... hmmm...
the whole "get woke, go broke" thing is 100% true. Why? Probably because its woefully apparent when a product is pandering.
It's funny, show-runners(not necessarily these
show-runners) openly deride those who speak out against "recasting" and act as if they are morally superior, even though their pandering attempts to buy brownie points are so transparent it becomes downright insulting to those who don't mind minority characters - or even prefer them. So first they insult one half of the audience by pulling a bait & switch on popular characters, then they insult the other half by acting as if "representation" is as simple as ticking a checkbox. No-one is happy and the show-runners act as if it's our fault. I really want this show to succeed but I'm trying to temper my expectations; I've been let down too many times lately.
