“Teen Wolf is the kind of show that not only gives its adult characters purpose, it also suggests that there are real-life consequences to being overly focused on epic supernatural problems. Like how Scott’s failing his classes. Stiles’ dad just got fired. The town’s leaders get regularly overthrown by a powerful upperclass (in this case, Jackson’s attorney father seemed to be the orchestrator of the Sheriff’s dismissal.) All these bummers not only ring true, they raise the stakes while simultaneously keeping things grounded. See what I’m saying? The writerly decisions this show makes have become downright refreshing.”—[x] (via forthesakeofyourwolvelihood)
Whenever someone talks about playing video games when they’re stressed out, it always ends up turning into a conversation about the Trauma Center series and why NOT to play any of them for stress relief. And then it turns into me talking about how Trauma Team was totally more realistic with it’s ninjas, superheroes, ghosts, jello blood, talking-to-the-dead phones, and school buses crashing through the second floor of a mall.
