Well thank Apollo for that! It seems like a sarcastic/exaggerated headline, but it’s pretty much true:
New guidelines issued on March 31 discourages plot lines that contain elements of “fantasy, time-travel, random compilations of mythical stories, bizarre plots, absurd techniques, even propagating feudal superstitions, fatalism and reincarnation, ambiguous moral lessons, and a lack of positive thinking.”
“The government says … TV dramas shouldn’t have characters that travel back in time and rewrite history. They say this goes against Chinese heritage,” reports CNN’s Eunice Yoon. “They also say that myth, superstitions and reincarnation are all questionable.”
I feel relieved that the Chinese people are being protected from these dangers by their government. What a thoughtful government they have.
Crap your hands!
