listen if midnight mass wasn’t your thing i get it if you thought it was bad and hated it cool but if you genuinely think bly manor is mike flanagan’s best work... i think you’re just a lesbian. and that’s okay! i’m just a lesbian too! i mean bly is my favorite work of his, but anywhere near his best? come on... it’s ok to admit your biases.
