How do I reach this point in life
THE LAST EPISODE OF FUTURAMA 1999 - 2013
Futurama has made me cry on multiple occasions and this is one of them.
I would just like to say fuck you to everyone who made me feel inadequate growing up and ruining my self esteem for years. You all suck and I’m glad I don’t talk to any of you any more.
I feel like a lot of people forget Piper is the main character of the show.
Yet in Season 1 she was the least interesting to me. I like her more in Season 2 but that doesn’t mean she’s even close to my favorite.
"In a lot of ways Piper was my Trojan Horse. You’re not going to go into a network and sell a show on really fascinating tales of black women, and Latina women, and old women and criminals. But if you take this white girl, this sort of fish out of water, and you follow her in, you can then expand your world and tell all of those other stories. But it’s a hard sell to just go in and try to sell those stories initially. The girl next door, the cool blonde, is a very easy access point, and it’s relatable for a lot of audiences and a lot of networks looking for a certain demographic. It’s useful." ~Jenji Johan, series creator (source)
Piper Chapman’s status as main character is a half-fiction concocted by the show’s creator to get racists to try the show. Her tendency to fall out of focus is wholly deliberate.
My favorite part of season two was the lack of her.
as a parent it is your god damn fucking job to look after your children stop treating your children like they are burdens
you signed up to have a child, the child did not sign up to have you as a parent
keep this in mind. do not expect your children to immediately give you back all the things you give them. they are children. love them. cherish them. treat them well.
