Alright, let's do this... #introductions
Hi! I'm Alahmnat. I'm a mid-30s web developer, aspiring game designer, and D'ni historian. I make no apologies for my bad/dad jokes and puns. Also I'm an arctic fox :)
My pronouns are they/them, but I won't be mad if you use he/him.
Also I can totally see why it would piss off authoritarian parents and people who think puberty is shameful, or turn off all the self-righteous killjoys who have forgotten they were ever kids. If you can’t relate to this movie in *some* way, I question if you’re even from this planet. What a great film.
Dogs in Space spoilers
I actually really appreciate that Kira was ultimately wrong about humans in the end. She had *every* reason to believe what she did; that we’d sent her—and by extension, the rest of the dogs in the show—off into space and abandoned them, because I mean, *gestures broadly*. She spent the entire season as a jaded sardonic cynic that kinda has you nodding along with her the whole way, because if she *had* been right about what happened to her, it would have been perfectly in line with our track record. It is NOT hard to make us look bad as a species.
But she *was* wrong, and not only that, she was wrong about her *own human*, and she got to go home at the end of the season to see her again. I really hope she comes back to the M Bark, though. It may have been iffy for a bit near the end, but I think she’s a good dog at heart with a lot understandable trauma to work through, and the Pluto crew has been a good family for her.
Side note: I don't think I've ever *actually* had fever chills before last night.
Do not recommend.
Obviously there’s a certain degree of nostalgia baked into that sentiment as well, but I think radio stations that start playing Christmas music on October 1st sure as hell aren’t helping any. No holiday can stand up to that kind of abuse without breaking.
