Yes, exactly. Art can’t possibly please everyone, and it smacks of entitlement to insist that a movie, TV show, or story of any time cater to one’s own preferences. Sometimes things don’t go the way you want, and the mature thing to do is to accept it. Express disappointment but don’t demand that it be re-done to suit your desires. You think the ancient Greeks passed around petitions to get better endings to their tragedies? I write more about this entitlement here —it seems to be a symptom of contemporary society.
