The Pervasive Conservatism of Netflix's Archive 81

2022.01.17 07:13 Noonem The Pervasive Conservatism of Netflix's Archive 81

This weekend I watched the show and I haven't been able to stop thinking about the weird choices Netflix producers made when adapting this wonderfully weird podcast and how they've made it politically conservative and off-putting?
Spoilers for both the podcast and Netflix production
Most people are probably thinking I'm talking about Melody's character being turned straight, while I find that pretty shitty from the production team and it does kinda fall under this larger issue I have with the show, it isn't the biggest point. Honestly Melody's relationship with Alexa in the first season of the podcast is very background and it isn't really fleshed out until the later seasons, so I don't fault the production team for wanting to streamline it to make a more cohesive first season. Do I like the way they went about it? No, not really.
But My Biggest Issue is that the whole mythos of the show has been warped and reduced into this trite western Judeo-Christian battle between good and evil that... just goes against the whole idea of what Archive 81 is? As an adaptation I can forgive the details, the streamlining but to get rid of the fundamental themes of the original work? As a fan I can't see it as anything else but a bad adaptation. Archive 81 was about people who were grey, people who were trying to survive and live in a world where cosmic horror magic was real and dangerous and beyond unknowable and they made the show into a basic Christian narrative about satanic cults with a horrible rubber suit demon with a stupid sounding name.
With this comes with a whole slew of other issues and weird details that I don't know how to describe them other than pervasively conservative? Like Melody being made straight is an aspect of this but I find that part especially weird because of Mrs. Wall. An unhinged evil cult member whose partnesister killed themselves (great trope) and I can't help but to find that weird that she's the only actually confirmed queer character on the show while this aspect of Melody's character was written out for no other reason then to add some relationship drama between her and Samuel?
The first time I noticed this aspect of the show though and why it has ingrained into my mind and forced me to post on reddit was the plot thread revolving around Father Russo and Jess. A completely bizarre tangent where the messaging seems to be that "helping" (read: torturing) children who keep having seizures with "demonic exorcism" instead of sending them to professionals was ... the right course of action? Maybe I'm not seeing the nuance here but that's what I got out of it after the season was over. Because those who wanted Jess to get actual medical attention were clearly up to something and then later confirmed to be evil cult leaders (Samuel) or being manipulated (Melody, Annabel). The show never critically analyses this again, to the point that the only thing we really learn about Jess after the Visser fire is that she joined the Catholic Church as a sister and is on a mission somewhere? Which only makes me think that this is intentional and not just a weird part that the writers missed. Now, American (I'm Estonian) media does love it's Jesus warriors and it's so commonplace that I can ignore it. I mean, I think The Exorcist is a great movie. And maybe if I had never listened to Archive 81, and it hadn't become one of my favorite pieces of media ever, this show would work for me? It's not badly made or anything... well other than some stuff: like Kalaego looking bad or why didn't Melody just push the statue over and why didn't Melody just go down with the fire escape with but nitpicking stuff that's not really the point for me really but I kept noticing more and more these details that the podcast just wouldn't philosophically agree with.
Like the whole focus on family in the Netflix show. Both shows do actually deal with familial relationships but they go about it completely differently. The entirety of season 3 of the podcast is focused on a family but it's about how abusive family members affect these characters and just because there is a blood connection it doesn't have to mean that you should be trapped by it, that it should be your legacy. Which is the complete opposite of what season 1 of the Netflix production has to say. Family has become the motivating factor of nearly all major characters. It's why Melody's at Visser, in search for her mom. It's a large part of what motivates Dan to finish the tapes. Hell, not even Davenport is safe from this with him and Samuel being made brothers. For the Netflix show family seems to define you and make it so that you're a part of a certain legacy because of it. While in the podcast the message is that your family doesn't have to define you if they're fucking assholes.
There's smaller details that aren't that important I could keep going on about but this post is already getting a bit too long for me. I'm glad people are enjoying the show and it's unfortunate that I'm so disappointed because I feel like I'm pretty easy to please. I don't think I even hate the show and I might check out a second season but they did completely change what made the podcast such a wonderful experience for me and it isn't that the plot changed. The plot is maybe pretty faithful but it's like the story is being told by someone whose philosophy is so entirely different from the original that it's hard to even accept it as actually being Archive 81.

2022.01.17 07:13 nath707 regret giving money away

i have a friend who lived in my country for a small while but he moved back to the phillipines recently where they just had a huge typhoon.
his family home was badly damaged in the storm, and he was asking if anyone could give him any money to help him out. so i gave him a bit of money to help him out because i live in a first world country and felt like it was my duty to give back, especially to a friend.
now i just saw that this dude has bought an expensive ass cologne that i have been wanting myself for ages but have put off buying it because its too expensive and i can't really afford it..
i don't know how to feel about this at all. he barely even said thank you when i gave him money which i brushed aside because he just went thru a traumatic experience but this just rubs me the wrong way and i am very poor myself and don't have much money to my name.. idk

2022.01.17 07:13 Genderisanxiety How can I get my parents to use my proper pronouns?

So I (19 AFAB NB) came out to my parents as non-binary in late December last year and they generally understood it seems. No negative reactions, if a bit of confusion on what terms to use. For the first week after, my dad tried to use the correct pronouns (They/Them) and terms (ie: person instead of girl). However, it’s stopped being done and my mom never really even tried to start with. Idk if they just forgot because I didn’t ask for or do anything else to show I was “seriously non-binary” or if they think I don’t care that they use the wrong pronouns and terms (I do, it’s not debilitating, but it is always a snap of discomfort when I here it). I said I’d give them the rest of the new year as an adjustment period (for both them and my sake), but now I’m wondering if it would be alright for me to start correcting them, at least in private.
How can I get them to use the right pronouns and terms without seeming like I’m being a nag or too sensitive?
Side note: Also, I’m still too unsure of myself (through self doubt of validity and/or rejection) to ask about the possibility of a binder let alone a possible name change (even though I envy being able to create a mixed gendegender neutral body) because it’s not bad dysphoria. It’s more like I’m always forced to wear something that I don’t always want to wear, it’s fine on some occasions (like if I’m lazing around the house or want to wear a dress) but I’d rather have the option to change my body into something more neutral when I want to. Any tips on how to grow more confident in these areas?
