You endured through Dougie... you can certainly endure our constant invasion
But it's really annoying when those people always make wrong assumptions about the disappointed group. First they accuse us of hating the series because they think we're nostalgic and just want the old characters, and then they don't understand why we don't love the nostalgic scenes (like Ed and Norma), even though we've explained again and again that our disappointment with the show hasn't anything to do with nostalgia. And these lovers don't make sense at all, when they first say they are so glad that the new series is new and not nostalgic, but as soon as something nostalgic happens, they are completely over the moon.
Then they tell us, wanting the original Cooper back is an impossible and stupid wish, because Cooper must have changed after 25 years, and they criticize us for wanting that, even though most of us didn't expect the same Cooper and only wanted a functioning Cooper (besides, I mostly hated Dougie because the storyline sucked, not because of the character). But now we got the same old Cooper back and they love it despite previously claiming it would be stupid. But the disappointed group is the one that doesn't make sense? Why should we love having Cooper back if his storyline is still not good and just as dragging as the Dougie storyline?
It's just annoying that those people don't even try to understand what people dislike about the show or read our posts. They come across as very prejudiced, saying people here just hate the show because they want to hate it, which isn't true at all.
It's also very annoying that a lot of those people who love the show are only lecturing us about disliking the things that they love because how dare we dislike something that they find great? A few of the disappointed people around here have sometimes mentioned things they like about the show, but for some reasons these posts have been ignored by the lecturing lovers. Maybe because that were scenes they didn't like themselves? I was attacked because I supposedly hated the show for not being what I expected, even though I had stated a couple of times that I loved some of the unexpected stuff (like Audrey). It seems like some people only read what they want to read and ignore everything else that doesn't add up with their prejudiced opinions. So yeah, these kind of invasions bother us. I don't mind discussions with people who love the show and reading a different perspective on a scene that I disliked, but I do mind condescending, lecturing, hypocritical or insulting posts.
