Have you seen all 7 seasons? I don’t want to spoil anything, but basically, spoilers for season 6 / early season 7:

I think Willow never has a moment of “I’m sorry and I understand why what I did was wrong” re: wiping Tara’s memory. What she did to Tara amounts to rape — she used magic to erase Tara’s memory in order to keep Tara…under her spell? The show doesn’t treat it as a big deal. Obviously, Tara is pissed off when she finds out that Willow was fucking with her brain, and their break-up gets a lot of screen time, but there was never any acknowledgement on the show’s part that (altering someone’s mental state) + (having sex with them) = rape.

And I never bought Willow’s penance. She goes to England to get better, but not to atone - to cleanse. They treated her addiction to magic as something worthy of rehab, but what about her addiction to control? Willow doesn’t just want to control the material world with magic; she wants to control people. And while she does show improvement in season 7, walks on eggshells, etc., it’s more out of a desire not to “overdose” on magic than it is out of some sense of contrition for being a terrible, terrible fucking girlfriend.

Some gifs I made of Weird Al’s Word Crimes. It’s a great video I suggest you watch it.

I love following people who are just getting in to the writing biz but It makes me anxious waiting for them to announce their next job. Not any where close as it makes them anxious… but I can only experience my own anxiousness.

So.

I will be writing a few episodes of the next Pemberly Digital show, Frankenstein MD. I attended one of the shoots this weekend, and everything (writing, acting, set, directing, cinematography, snacks) far exceeded my expectations. This will not be business as usual for Pemberly Dig. This is a horse of a different color.

If you loved LBD but lost interest in the company in the following year, don’t discount Frankenstein out of hand. This is going to be a very funny, very dark show, and I think a lot of you little sadistic spring chickens are gonna like it.

I am very excited about this show. In some ways it’s going back to PD’s strengths and in others it’s breaking entirely new ground.

((Ahh, was not expecting this post to get so many notes. I haven’t signed a contract with PD yet / am still in very early stages of involvement with the show, but I wanted to share some news with friends and stuff. This is just to say, I’m excited for the show, regardless of the role I’ll end up playing.))

hopefully you get the role of Frankenstein. But I guess doing some writing would be cool too. :P

I 100% back this up.

I was on one of the shoots for a bit this weekend and agree with everything Taylor said above. FMD shifts things for PD to where it’s almost a different tone altogether. It’s going to pull you in and you’ll have to fight HARD to get away.

And for my STEM friends who are worried, don’t be. Trust me.

exciting!
