HBO ANNOUNCES CONFEDERATE, A NEW DRAMA SERIES CREATED BY DAVID BENIOFF AND D.B. WEISS
Hard pass / seems like a terrible idea
On paper this sounds bad, but I'll reserve judgement.
Interesting premise. I wonder how it will come across.
Horrendous idea helmed by the worst possible people for the job.
Benioff is a great writer but this shit sounds rough. I guess we'll see...
I'm into these kind of things. I was pretty into man in the high castle
RIP HBO's mentions. Horrifyingly tone deaf.
i hope this gets cancelled and we won't have to have this thread
With the Spellmans involved as head writers and executive producers, I have an inkling of a notion of a thought that this could be not totally tone deaf and in poor taste, but either way it's still not a good look for HBO to allow the two white dudes who consistently mishandle rape on GoT to do this.
Can we just stop fantasizing about the South winning the Civil War?
this is a very bad idea
do...almost anything else, benioff/weiss
So this is basically like The Man in the High Castle?
In a broad sense yes. They are both Alternate History about what would have happened had the outcome of a war been different. But I wouldn't think the plot lines would be very similar, considering it's WW2 vs the American Civil War.
