Velma: Purposefully a Shit Show?

So some of you have probably heard of this show. But I have a pet theory here that Velma is so OBSCENELY bad that I am now fully convinced that it was done on purpose. It's probably supposed to showcase front and center full modern gen. z woke bullshit. In that lense, things really start to click together. It's like Black Mirror, except for woke shows.

If I was to speculate further, perhaps it wasn't supposed to be like this at all, but some of the execs forced them to put in stuff they didn't want to and they were so fed up with this that they decided to make the most bullshit woke show to end all bullshit woke shows to ever hit screens. Risky as fuck for them to do this if this is indeed the case, but if it IS true, then Velma is secretly genius.

It's the current clownworld, where you don't actually know whether a thing is sarcastically hilarious, or seriously woke. Where Babylon Bee is writing news of the future, and the future will 360 their opinions to the new 180, claiming it's what they thought, or what happened all along. All in typical gaslighting fashion. Together with telling you what to do, but doing the exact same thing they're telling you not to do. It all makes for great division and demoralization, with people losing trust in "authorities" other than the ones who first lie to them, and/or the ones who's witch-hunting wrong-thinkers.

I don't think giving Velma the benefit of the doubt has any upsides, but may in fact make you think more serious woke stuff is actually based comedy, and so spread it for greater impact. I am a self-described cynic though.

Nah, I wouldn't spread this same courtesy to many other shows. Velma just has this... Undescribable quality where it really truly does seem deliberately written to be awful. I don't get that impression from the other shows.

No man, its intentional, Mindy Kaling the voice actress for Velma and executive producer of the show straight up put her agenda on this lol. for example Velma is now brown aka straight up Indian like her, and lesbian because of her constant need to be inclusive and have a gay main character to satisfy her own "bi-curiosity." I mean come on man Daphne is now east asian and Shaggy is called by his real name and he is black now lmao.

Haven't seen anything of it but have read the reactions
Writer is also the voice actor which makes it hard not to see it as a self insert into a boomer show to farm current age woke reactions with a skin color change to top it off

“It felt like what made it a kids’ show was Scooby-Doo. That coincided with Warner Bros. Animation saying, ‘Hey, you can’t use the dog,'” Grandy said. “So we were like, ‘Great, this works out well.'”

Guys, I'm telling you we don't really know for sure. I did some very cursory reading into the actress and it seems she has been pretty mum about her opinions in the past. (Could be very wrong here, so if so, someone let me know.) We cannot say for certain that this wasn't intentionally terrible. Even further, the actress has already written 5+ books, and if she was truly that astoundingly awful of a writer, then I'm sure it would have raised eyebrows by now.

If this was truly intentionally written as shit then hats off to these people, because they got free publicity like mad (negative publicity is still publicity) and now everyone and their mother knows about this show even if they have never seen it nor ever will. Or maybe it was all for shits and giggles and soon we will get the interview where they will go "Sike guys! Here is the real series, we actually got Scooby Doo!"

Yeah I'll buy into the idea... it's now the worst rated show in history, whatever that means in todays world. If it was on purpose they definitely achieved a hallmark.

I watched the first episode. It's bad, and it's intentionally the way it is. I don't think it's some sort of 4D chess move to show how dumb woke stuff is, but I think it's just an example of Hollywood giving roles and paychecks to people NOT based on merit. The show is a bad fan-fiction, with Mindy self-inserting herself as Velma. That's all it is. There is only a handful of people this show is for, and most of them is Mindy Kaling.

This, Mindy Kaling does this a lot with shows she produces, the some character tends to be self insert of herself in some sort of idealized fashion. More specifically if you are interested look at The Sex Lives of College Girls and Never Have I Ever where both of her self inserts are indian girls in what could be generally described as a journey of self discovery, sexual liberation, freedom etc. etc. Not to say all these shows are bad of course, but this is typically what Kaling does with her shows.
 

Alpha and Om3ga

Well, ofc. They did make it viral. People are talking about it after all, am I right?

Anything made in the last decade has been woke and even earlier than that in my opinion. Why? Cause it sells.

It's just that, as a kid, you don't reflect over wokeness or not. Kids today think "Velma" or what ever you called it, is perfectly normal. Just like you thought Scooby Doo was normal back in the days. Hint: It wasn't. Scooby Doo is literally a drug addict running around in the forest alone with his friends getting shot at by land owners. Sounds pretty woke if you ask me. Damn hippies.

Thing is, you don't reflect over stuff like that because as a kid you were guilable. As thing gets increasingly more woke, the influence it has on society how ever stays as detrimental as it has always been. Eventually another collapse like Egypt might be inevitable. Or society will just be in this dormant state since the leaders also feed everyone damn soy products to turn them into sterile gay frogs. Not a conspiracy. Wait for the bugs, they're on the menu soon enough. As a vegan, I won't be eating disgusting insects. But everyone will, because it will be in literally everything, pizza, cookies, etc. Everything we once loved will be destroyed/has been already. And you know what? I am fine with that. Bring it on.

James Bond as a tranny, cool bro. The little mermaid as a black lives matter activis, wow, amazing bro. Etc, etc. The most amuzing thing about this, is that people actually still care enough to buy these products. Why not just illegally download it if you really wanna watch it so much, seriously, people are so dumb. Why would I wanna watch a "movie" about someone I look down upon? It's not even a superiority thing, it's just the fact that it's not a movie, it's literal propaganda, anything else in the so called "movie" or "game" or what ever is just fill out for the actual propaganda. It's blantantly obvious and in your face, all the time. It's not so much, here take this subtle lie, more like: im gonna brain wash you over and over until you accept this. Guess what boo boo? You're exposed. My mind is to strong for that shit bro.

I have literally not watched any movie for the past 10 years. They're all degenerated, the subtle but still annoyingly present propaganda destroyes the whole so called "experience" for me, i rather just do something else. I truly believe movies/tv is bad for your mental health/brain in general. Same goes for too much internet. How ever I have good protection as my mind is extremely powerful and my third eye sees like everthing anyways bro.

Only movies I like are movies watched as a kid, because back then I didn't even understand the propaganda so I could focus on the actual cool stuff like Orcs, Wizards and stuff. Now you have to make your own movies in your own head. And to be fair, my stories in my head is better than any Marvel or DC movie. They got nothing on me.
