I’d like to see shows where people have healthy, supportive relationships with each other, especially romantic partners and families. I know that every relationship has problems, but I’m tired of every relationship I see in pop culture devolve into infidelity and backstabbing and doubt. Why can’t the writers have conflict come from something else and let some characters just have each other’s backs? [Except for you, United States of Tara, xoxox for a family and marriage that avoid this tired trope.] Related: why are so many story conflicts based on people just not talking to one another? I know that people don’t communicate perfectly, but when they never talk to each other directly and then have horrible things happen on multiple occasions because they don’t ever converse and share information, I begin to think the characters are stupid and the writers even more stupid.
why can’t we have a show where sisters actually get along and care about each other.
why can’t we have a show where one sister isn’t demonised and the other isn’t turned into a victim and a saint.
why can’t we have a show where a married couple is actually happy and you know, TOGETHER, without freaking drama?
