Time to jump on the bandwagon: the live action PowerPuff Girls show is bad on purpose. It's not a mistake, this is intentional. It is bad by design.
You can sell a good show. You can sell a bad show. But you can't sell a mediocre middle-of-the-road show. For all intents and purposes this should be a forgettable single season reboot, because nobody asked for it and it's going in a totally different direction than the original show intended, but the studio realizes that if they double down and make it super shitty then a ton of people will hate watch it. It will become a meme, garnering endless free publicity from people complaining about it and dissecting each set photo and making YouTube essays for every episode. Hell, I'm not even gonna watch it and I'm still talking about it (in front of my high-single-to-low-double-digit audience); I'm a nobody, but this is exactly what they want. I get it, I'm not immune to propaganda.
They can make more money if it's bad than if it's just boring, so why not pull out all the stops? Balls to the walls, make it crazy, go big or go home! It won't be good, so they pretty much HAVE to make it bad, at any cost. Riverdale started as their attempt at making a serious Archie Comics adaptation, and now it's become ironic, dark and gritty on purpose, that's the joke. PPG will be no different; ironically bad is still bad, and my complaining is only feeding into it. Ignore me, "Old Man Yells at Clouds."

Dear God, this stuff is terrifying. How has the CW not been sued for negligence?
“A crew member got third degree burns all over his body...we witnessed his skin fall off his face."
What the fuck is going on over at WB?
