Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Okay no, someone launch me into space now before I have to see this become a reality. They are making a COMEDY PILOT on NBC based on Girlfriend in a Coma, WITHOUT THAT WHOLE TINY DETAIL OF THE END OF THE WORLD. WHATTTT. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? YOU CAN'T JUST CUT OUT A GIANT CHUNK OF A STORY LIKE THAT! I'm not saying that book is of Shakespeare level (though I did love it a lot more than I did Shakespeare when I read it in highschool), but if this is how we're gonna do things, why not just make a romcom by cutting out the tragic ending of Romeo + Juliet? Or a cheerful slapstick comedy version of The Old Man and the Sea that takes place in a desert with the old man played by Zac Efron? A dramatization of The Art of War MINUS THE WAR? THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN ALTER IN ADAPTATIONS AND THINGS THAT YOU CANNOT.
I DON'T WANT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE.


Lets talk about some better TV while I stew in rage. (Never let it be said I can't multitask!)
