The full name is “The That is like so bad Paradox“. It’s a little observation I made of the science fiction community. Can people hating something, make them like it? Thrust me, it sounds more complicated than it actually is. First of all, let’s start with Star Wars for once. In fact, I have a confession to make. I don’t hate Jar Jar Binks. I just don’t mind him. But most people hate poor Jar Jar with their lives. And in a way, that makes the Star Wars community closer to each other.Things to do with “Jar Jar Binks sucks” have just become part of some peoples’s everyday vocabulary. In case you still don’t understand what I’m talking about here’s an example:
There is a youtube video on Star Geek’s channel called “Top 10 saddest moments in Star Wars”. For a long while, the most liked comment was “The saddest moment is the appearance of Jar Jar Binks”. And so people got his joke and people had fun because of the fact that they hated Jar Jar.
Now lets go onto DC. Supergirl in specific. Everyone (including me this time) knows that this tv show is horrible. But the fact that it’s so bad makes people talk about it more. For example, fellow blogger, Fynm, has about five posts all about how bad Supergirl is. Would he have so many if Supergirl was actually a good tv show?
Now I know that there are lots of bad Marvel movies and comics, but I couldn’t find any good examples of what I’m trying to show you, so for today I will just skip Marvel.
So, all of this leads to a theory. In secret, do some sci-fi (and other genres) films on purpose put in these characters that they know people will hate, just to start all these discussions? I personally think that this is very plausible. Anyway, I hope that you enjoyed reading this post.
As usual, it would be very appreciated if you left me some feedback by commenting below or voting in the poll. If your really enjoying my blog, then a follow would also be great. Have an epic Friday and a happy weekend.
PS Don’t forget that Stan Lee’s Lucky Man is on tonight at 9pm on Sky1.
