->Thunt hasn't shown much ability to make the audience sympathize with the characters by fleshing them out (certainly not with the "main" group of characters), so his only recourse is to constantly shit on them so that the audience sympathizes with their plight. In fact, Thunt is so adamant on this tack that he pursues it even when it results in phenomenally bad narrative decisions, like killing off a main character [[DroppedABridgeOnHim for no reason at all and with no payoff]] or [[TheOneThatGotAway flushing several months of character development down the toilet]]... And if the characters keep getting the rug pulled out from under them, what reason do I have to remain invested in their plight?

->Making every hero on earth as dark as Franchise/{{Batman}}? That was your master plan? Great. So, after the audience gets bored to tears by every hero being just like every other hero, they'll be so depressed over how freakin' BLEAK they are, they'll KILL THEMSELVES!

->I would watch every episode, and afterward, I would just feel like I couldn’t sleep at night, it was so dark. I guess that was instructive to me. That show told me, “Be honest with your show, make it as dark as it needs to go, but you’d better find a way to leaven it with humor, otherwise people are going to want to slit their wrists after they watch it.”

->I think most of [[PostGrunge that music scene]] died through their own bloated, humorless self importance. They were all basically the bastard children several branches down the family tree of [[Music/IggyPop Iggy & The Stooges]]/[[Music/TheRamones Ramones]]/Richard Hell & The Voidoids/[[Music/TomPetty The Heartbreakers]] ... except they forgot that those bands were actually funny and didn't take themselves too seriously. They basically wrote 3 minute songs about [[OdeToIntoxication getting wasted]] and [[IntercourseWithYou farking]].

->By the mid-90s every video was like some afterschool PSA about childhood runaways, eating disorders, school shootings ... or childhoold [sic] runaways with eating disorders doing school shootings. They just opened the door for [[Music/TheSpiceGirls Spice Girls]] & Cali Ska Pop .. because people got tired of that depressing overwrought bullshiat on their radio all day.

->''[[Film/FantasticFour2015 Fantastic Four]]'' seems almost deathly allergic to colour. The film is dark and grim and desaturated. There are lots of browns and greys and blacks; the only blues that appear for extended periods of time are so dark as to practically be black. There are brief flashes of green, but even those are tightly regulated. There is apparently only so much colour that a frame of ''Fantastic Four'' can support.

->By the time you get to the game itself, it's just this ugly game filled with mean things that happen to people you don't care about.

->All that happens is that Picard discovers that if he grew up in a space mine, he'd just turn into a raging psychopath that pulls a spike through his guts. [[LostAesop Gee, how uplifting]]. But couldn't they've ended it like [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration the show]] ended? with a nice game of Pinochle? somethin' where ya ''don't'' feel like slitting your wife's wrists?\\\
