I saw a True Blood
episode this week and it's all about vampires, fairies, shape-shifters, ghosts and werewolves.
I mean what's the point of even still having human characters in this series?
Are the humans in the latest Underworld
series real characters, or just a plot device?
OK, they feed on us, and we're like rebellious cattle, but being simply human is just becomes boring.
Then we had aliens in V
We also had many zombie flicks.
The humans are always at a major disadvantage, and often I think their survival is simply to keep the stories going.
Most of these monsters are so powerful that a single group could wipe us out.
It's never explained why they don't do this, or whether humans have some special quality too.
We can die and they're virtually immortal?
Our mortality is supposed to be an attraction?
Sometimes we're the hunters; and sometimes we're the villains.
Often we are the hunted.
Why would any human not want to turn into one of these creatures?
I mean being human and mortal is just boring.
Perhaps some of these programs want to poke ironic fun at politics.
Humans and various monsters become minorities.
Often a good monster saves the humans.
These programs can make one frustrated, because humanity seems to be kept for practical or unexplained purposes.
Humanity is portrayed as rather useless.
I want to be a fairy, but I cannot.
I want to be a vampire, but I cannot.
I'd love to be a werewolf, but I cannot.
Fantasy is good, but arguably this is fantasy portrayed in a very realistic setting.
Maybe we just exist as food?
Or maybe we get power from our weapons, like in Avatar
Clearly these films are all fantasy.
But it's a continual fantasy subject that makes me unhappy with being human.
Why can't I be a werewolf that lives with a ghost and a vampire?
Being human is underrated these days!
