I can't help but compare things. I just watched the first season of True Detective and was blow away with how existential it was. Then I watched the last episode of the Chronicles of Boba Fett (stay with me) and was so disgusted I turned it off before the show ended. Yeah, I can hear you saying it is an unfair comparison - one being a scifi show for kids and the other being a violent mystery horror for adults. But bad writing is bad writing. You can write well to a younger audience (or nerds).
This isn't a one shot deal either. All kinds of trashy writing as been coming from Disney as of late. The Hawkeye series was just unwatchable. Wandavision was starting to get Twilight zone good before it fell back into comic camp. And the What If series was just terrible. Making matters worse, I decided to go back and watch the first seven seasons of Supernatural and was blow away by how good it was. Yeah, the series faded after that but I can't fault the early writing on that show. I keep waiting for a new series to come out that will impress we. I have a feeling I'll be waiting a while.
