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.
