Terminal List. It's not "woke" nor "anti-woke". Its just apolitical.

Wntrlnd:
So I saw this article on Variety about Chris Pratts new movie "The terminal list" https://variety.com/2022/tv/news/the-terminal-list-creator-fights-woke-critics-1235337305/ which I figured might interest the members of the RPGsite.

According to the shows creator, a former Navy Seal, critics hate it because it's not "woke" enough to which he replies that while it's not woke, neither is it in any form "anti-woke" either. He just wanted to avoid putting politics into it.

I think he raises a point. Why is it impossible to just be neutral? To just make a good movie (or series) nowadays without (having to) inject politics in it.

Oh, you sweet summer child.

The very same people who mocked G.W. Bush's "If you are not for us, then you are against us" order their entire worldview around that exact principle.  Any media that is not woke is considered to be promoting the status quo (or at least ok with it), which makes it anti-woke.  So the woke have set up a Manichean dualism, where you are either an ally or an enemy.  No neutrals are allowed...

Skullking:
Because, in the eyes of Leftists, 'silence is violence'. Either you agree and are an 'ally', virtue signalling as required or you are literally (sic) a Nazi.

oggsmash:
Its not an accident all the news stories on the series are broken and broadcast on Fox news.....  The creator of the show is PLENTY political, just not in the sense of solely right and left.  He is more or less representing a newer populist view, and that IMO is worse than anything republicans have ever put forth and is far more terrifying to leftists.

Ruprecht:
The show was pretty good once it gets up and running.
