Ripper Street’s been cancelled?!
Damn. Well, I’ve got a lot of conflicted feelings about this. On the one hand, it’s a bloody shame, because despite its flaws I did really love it. The acting was great, the sets and costumes were great and the characters were (at times) really awesome. On the other hand, they were seriously messing shit up this season. Between the fridging and putting on a bus of no less than three important female characters, the constant use of minorities and the continuity problems, it’s no wonder they didn’t and I quote “bring the audience we hoped”.
Here’s to hoping we’ll see the actors in new stuff soon enough.
Ripper Street’s been cancelled? Huh. Well at least they can stop assassinating characters I like now. Although I’ve been done since I looked online after Bella died and the tag was full of people screaming about Bennet’s feelings. I was going to strikethrough that as a sarcastic aside but I actually think it bears saying. When they kill off a main character and people are more concerned about their husband’s feelings then something is very fucking wrong.
On the other hand Rose did beat a guy with a poker, so that’s one good moment this season.
lmao, that was dreadful wasn’t it. I remember one person who had liked the “you are all overreacting about this whole gay thing, it was totally normal for them to kill them all because victorian times sucked” post was up in fucking arms over Bennet’s manpain. Like, who cares that all the gays die, as long as my hetero white dude gets to be happy.
I’ll be honest with you, I purposely never got attached to Bella because I figured she was an obvious foil for Rose, but she turned out to be pretty cute in season 2, in fact, having a cultist background could have made her a wildly interesting character (moreso than Rose even, whose background is still limited to ‘prostitute’). To have her commit suicide solely because Bennet ‘loved Rose more’ (something which was NEVER indicated, in fact, the only thing they’ve done this season is have one drink together) and not for instance, because Bella tried to kill a room full of people or because she ‘abandoned’ her daughter is fucking ludicrous.
Rose did beat a guy with a poker, and escaped her captives for a change. That was nice. Again, it’s not like there was NOTHING good about Ripper Street, it’s just that went in a weird ass direction and stopped connecting the dots this season.
the 90s really were the golden age of television. I mean, what more could you want?
like do you see where I’m going with this
