Hear ye, artists: We all do that thing where just because everyone else likes something, it doesn’t mean that we are going to. In fact, if something is hyped up, or seems mainstream, we are instantly snarkified. I’m absolutely guilty of this: see – Juno, Beginners, Pho.
But lately, I’ve seen 3 hyped up things that I’ve genuinely loved for their various great characters and heart-warming purposes. I tend to either like or not like things, and these 3 really sucked me in emotionally and kept me there: The pilot of Smash, The Descendants, and The Help. I just LIKED them and I DON’T care who knows it!
