What's something from a movie, TV show, book, any form of media, that you wish you could wipe from your memory and see for the first time again? An unexpected twist, or a really good joke, or whatever?
For me it's the episode of How I Met Your Mother where Ted gives his very first lecture as an architecture professor
to the wrong class.
Got me so hard. 😂 Perfect comedic timing to maximize the impact. I'm so glad I got to watch it unspoiled (being a late adopter of the show).
The last couple of episodes of Devilman Crybaby. I was completely floored by how beautifully done it was.
Also the entirety of Mirai Nikki (and the additional OVA which completes it as it is the manga ending). I can't think of another show that puts the middle finger up to the 'be a better person and everything will work out in the end' ideology quite like this show does. I love when characters are rewarded for making pragmatic (yet morally questionable) decisions instead of being punished for it because: karma. 'Do the right thing no matter what and I'm sure everything will work out in the end' is an unrealistic ideology and I wish it was more mainstream for media to show characters making selfish (but cleverly selfish) decisions and it working out for them. It's been a while and top of my list for a re-watch actually.
