Season 3 started today. They replaced one of my favorite characters, Mr. World, played by Crispin Glover. Now, it’s Ms. World, played by a black woman.

I’m out.

I DGAF about that. What bothered me is that aside from a couple sequences, the overall show was no where near the quality we should expect.

The show was horrible. I do however care about changing fundamental characters due to social justice motivations instead of what's best for the story.

Mr. World is Mr. World. Glover nailed it. All of a sudden he was a she. And she is terrible in the role.

Next.

I'll watch the next couple at least. Ian McShane deserves at least that much for how well he's done with his role.

I thought she did alright and she was kinda smoking. Much hotter than Crispin Glover.

Agreed, maybe it will pick up steam.

I forgot about this show after season 1!

From what I'm seeing Crispin Glover is playing a different role in season 3? No idea who/why (trying to avoid spoilers) so I'm wondering if it was his decision to no longer play Mr. World? If they decided to drop him, why would they have him back in another role?

EDIT: Apparently Danny Trejo will also be playing Mr. World this season. I'm guessing this wasn't a SJW decision. Whether it's a good decision I have no idea, I have to add season 2 to my queue!

No idea what they're going for rotating through multiple Mr. Worlds. Having two specific actors / personas portray Mr. World seems like a direct foreshadow to a concept that book readers already know..

You can never have enough Crispin Glover weirdness. This should tide over anyone going through withdrawals:

That wasn't what I was referring to. But the fact you think she is hot is definitely debatable. Her face looks like something out of a wax museum or a cave man show.
