Page 1 of [VIDEO] A League of there own (tv series)
Adore the movie so looking forward to this august 12
Feels like Amazon Prime is ramping up on new interesting series. I think in recent years there's maybe been one show on it every 6 months that turned my head from Netflix, but now suddenly there are multiple ones.

Well after watching the 1st episode I was really impressed, they seemed to get exactly the right vibe but having just finished episode three and that's me done, they have for me made some catastrophic changes to the characters and therefor the story, they dropped the sister so no dynamic there, introduced the black woman for the sake of introducing a black woman, the coach so perfectly played by tom hanks is an asshole with no redeeming qualities and the biggest mistake and unforgivingly so for me is turning it into a lesbian drama again to make it hip and trendy, the players are just annoying, the main lesbians are in a relationship cheating on from what I could gather decent men which makes them thoroughly unsympathetic and while they have obviously put a lot of cash into it I think they have missed the point by a long long long way
I don't think I've seen the film since I saw it at the cinema, will prob give this a miss then.I think "adult" programmes need to look at "kids" programmes to introduce same sex relationships etc.
I guess part of it is how many kids these days are blase, don't care about same sex it's normal to them, where as for us it used to be front page news if a person was gay, now you have daytime radio/tv personalities etc talking about their same sex other half.
a couple of the kids' programmes have same sex relationship, but it's done the same way as opposite sex, i.e. a girl likes a girl, they act awkwardly, have a hug, then a small kiss, there's no drama about it being same sex. it was funny, 'cos there was a story in the newspaper "BBC children's programe shows lesbian kiss" shock horror, disgusting etcI think the bbc actually only had a handful of complaints, said it's just a reflection on society etc.
So I mentioned it to the girls, they said, oh yeh, girl 1 and girl 2 are now seeing each other, and they went back to whatever they were doing.
When you see them on screen it's not like you see anything more than boy girl couples, i.e. some hand holding, and maybe a small kiss on the lips.
But yeh, some programmes seem to be waving the "look at us, we're inclusive" flag, and have to shoehorn things in.
I was thinking about a similar thing the other day, when they had to force a woman to be a strong role model, and it didn't really work, but films like Star Wars, and TV shows like Buffy, always had strong female characters, but you didn't really notice at the time or care, and again in Buffy, same sex relationship was there, but not an issue.
I think I just went off on a tangent, sorry :)
