There’s a TV show on called Ninja Pandav, the existence of which was revealed to me by a review I read in the Indian Express this morning. While potentially as brilliant as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (which I can’t wait to read) I can safely say, having seen a few youth-oriented Indian fantasy serials a few years ago, that Ninja Pandav would be just the kind of rubbish that would make me regret having a TV connection (and I haven’t had one in about two years) BUT that’s not the point here.
In her review, the Indian Express TV critic disliked two things about the show.
1. The kung fu was stolen from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
2. The plots of Ninja Pandav appear to be copied from the stories of the Pandavas in the Mahabharat.
Which means, essentially, no matter how bad the entertainment, the criticism is generally worse.
I worry about the world sometimes.
