At the risk of repeating myself, America's mass shooting don't seem to be going away. So if this is the approach Netflix wants to take, they might as well shelve the whole damn thing now.

Except the Vegas guy wasn't a vigilante. He was just a nutcase who killed innocent people because he was a nutcase. Important distinction.

TV is pretend.  It's ok to watch people on TV pretend to do things that it's not ok to actually do in real life.

Rocketboy1313: You guys seem to be under the impression that they don't want to encourage gun violence and are bringing up how "GTA doesn't cause crime" or "Watching Batman doesn't make me jump on roof tops dressed as a bat".

HEY IDIOTS, it is not about ENCOURAGING violence.  They just know that a hero based around gun violence is not going to be palatable after real gun violence has left such a bad taste in everyone's mouths.

In much the same way you might not want to watch a movie about a plane crash after seeing a plane crash on the news.  IT SUCKS THE FUN OUT.


It doesnt suck the fun out. They are doing this because they might offend some assholes on twitter who have nothing better to do then be outraged at every single little farking slight.

If Netflix really worried about fools like that then they wouldn't release shows like "Big Mouth" or "Dear White People" whose whole thing is upsetting those dipshiats.

Feel free to whine about how Netflix is collapsing to some kind of unseen social pressure, but maybe think that an entertainment company might actually be more worried about releasing their show in a context that is conducive to enjoyment rather than in the wake of everyone watching videos of murder victims which has been dominating people's news feeds.


Mass shootings are background noise at this point. We don't go more than 6 months without one, and no one cares enough to figure out a way to get the weapons out of reach of the nutters.

So why delay a fictional entertainment show with guns and shooting in it when we're perfectly fine with real guns and shootings happening on a regular basis?

Right or wrong, a boatload of films were delayed or edited after 9/11.
This delay won't hurt anyone. I can't fault them for their sensitivity.

Yes, in the story about a TV show's release being delayed because the subject matter is too reminiscent of a recent mass murder... You are the victim.

Don't worry, I am sure the latest in a line of ultra successful TV shows that has already been filmed will not disappear.  Just like how any hope of effective gun laws will evaporate in about two weeks when everyone but the victim's and their families forget everything.

The industry did the same thing after Columbine.  There were alot of films and shows that got put on hold for a bit until things got sorted out.

It's easier to weather an accusation that you're more sensitive than you need to be than it s that you're totally tone deaf.

It is a cool iconic shirt. Yet, haven't you noticed the douchebags starting to lionize it  for being quasi- law enforcement, military.

I certainly understand why

I never stole a car in my life until I played GTA. I never shot at cops in my life until I saw The Shield. I never, ever robbed a bank until I read Superman comics. So yeah, we should be getting rid of more of this crap to stop Americans from acting like assholes, because we never acted like this before mass media was invented. Nope. No siree.

Why would they push it back?  This is clearly the farking American dream!   I mean, it must be, right?  Because if it weren't so then there would be some reasonable constraint in place to make it harder to just go out and get a hundred guns and murder dozens and dozens of people.  And, since no steps have pretty much EVER been taken, and the populace has never stood up to their elected representatives and MADE them make a change, then everybody is clearly alright with it.

I mean, look at Australia -- they didn't like it happening so they stopped it from happening.  Period.  Done.
The US clearly wants it to keep happening.

I wonder if that's a case of overthinking it though.  Like, if you're in the demographic that wants to watch a Punisher show, are you going to change your mind about it because of current events, or are you still just going to watch it because you were going to watch it anyhow?

I guess there's concern about people who wouldn't have watched the show ayhow being offended by it instead of just ignoring it, but man I hate having to lose something I enjoy because somebody else took offense to it.

Yep.

Because with the way this shiathole nation is now, if they're waiting a "respectful period" after the next mass shooting to release the show, it'll come out sometime in 2357.
