The tmnt 2012 tv series ( and others beyond ) to lessen the romance

The reason why, I wrote this, is not to remove the romance, or to only talk about how you would normally see fans upset because they like a character. It is asking for it to be lessened, because, besides how it may make some who don't like it feel, it'd be interesting to see how a show and its characters would be if the characters were given more development in something different, not romance, since romance is already so well known in many tales, why not give other kinds of love, like the kind between friends some more time? I'm asking,  " Why can't there be a way to please everybody?"   I don't understand how if something in a tv show or book ( like tmnt ) is offensive to some people or if the company gets sued, that's when you might see changes, but if fans complain because something in the show bothers them, they're ignored. That's sad, especially when its for the whole audience. Its good that the ones in charge care about how we feel, but not only the majority, the minority of the audience should get some time to be Iistened to as well. I know that it maybe hard to convince the companies why some things should or should not happen, but you should at least try. Even if nothing happens, keep trying because it hasn't happened yet. If you stop, you won't know if it will happen. Besides, if you keep asking, it may show that its worth the time, but if you give up, others might think you lost interest and say, " Why bother listening when they've stopped?" If its worth it, we have to show it! If enough of us REALLY want this, we have to say something. Do something. We have to repeat what it is we're talking about, because it's not fair that some people can enjoy it and others can't. Some fans like some of the characters themselves, so when love interests come along, that takes away the freedom, for some people, because the guy/ girl the fans like is now interested in someone and that can hurt some fans.  Sure they can choose not to watch or watch the other series or read the other books, but what if they want to continue? They want to watch it too, it's harder for them sometimes, since they may prefer watching action or seeing their favourite characters having adventures, not being paired with someone. When these fans complain, I don't think it should be ignored, because everybody's feelings should have the time to be listened to. You don't know all the reasons why they're protesting. It could be hurting, the characters changed too fast or too much. Its all the show is about now. Its used so often. They miss how it was, it's uncomfortable to watch and its not as entertaining. The way the turtles get treated, sometimes they get returned feelings, or it looks the look, then there's drama and the girls being involved, hurts them.  The way the crushes were handled, how suddenly some of their behaviours change, almost like, they're not acting like themselves or they like the girls almost immediately after they meet, because they're supposed to like them.  Sometimes tv characters are relatable and sometimes they mean a lot to people. That might be why some may even be thinking of not watching the show anymore and that makes me sad, because its a great show and if people don't like it as much, it doesn't look good for it. I know that not everybody likes it for the same reasons, but why can't there be a way to give everyone what makes them happy? If there was a way, no one would need to complain and everybody would have something to call their own. Sure you can have fan fiction where you're the love, but after its over, it still might not be enough when you go back to the series and are reminded of it again. Romance is okay for some stories, but aren't you tired of it being in nearly everything? There are a lot of TV shows, reboots, stories that have romance, why can't there be something new, or why aren't other kinds of love and other development explored as much? Why don't we ever get to see what it would be like if main characters stayed single or were not interested, or if they date, why not have that they yes, have their romance, but if it doesn't work out, or after a while things and feelings change, show what it'd be like if they were now friends? It could be some interesting development to see how that would be handled. It's like every character is the same: Comes into the show, meets someone, likes/loves him/her. Don't you want to see something else? Like more development of characters individually, watching them grow stronger, better and thinking about everyone else they care about like family, instead of pairing development, where they're focusing on a crush, how great they are, if they will like them back, impressing them, then if they do, how they're together and if you hear of one, the other comes to mind as well. Sure they can be strong together, but it seems like they're not that much of individuals like before and all they do is focus on each other. Not everyone or every character is the same or needs a partner. People can be happy by themselves too and the movies and series can still be as entertaining. Why can't the turtles each have a best friend who's a girl? I mean, for the people who like the couples, they could still be happy, because best friends are close. It looks more like the kind of relationship that's best known in the show is the dating kind. Yeah, they're teenagers and yes the family relationship is also there, but the romance seems to get more attention. Why can't we as the viewers, see all sorts of relationships in the show? See what it'd be like if characters had more to their personalities, instead of every time or most times the crushes are seen in the show with them, they have romantic moments? Besides, once you hear the word "relationship", some people might assume it means dating, but there's other kinds, its not for only one kind. It's okay when some things don't change, but when a story is told differently, don't you feel more excited, curious and it sparks your interest faster when it takes a new turn? There has to be more to the show, something that both people who like romance and don't like it, can enjoy. Maybe if there was a way to make it a little more personal, or had more variety, so that everybody can like it equally. Some fans probably can't say anything except by mail if they don't have computers, but there has to be some who do and can do something. Talk to your friends and family about it. Make videos, Facebook, for examples. The show is for all of us to watch and enjoy, right? So why should this be ignored? Why not give this some time to think about? If we don't enjoy it, we should speak, or it might not change. It is not just a tv show to some people. Besides the romance looks rushed, unnecessary and for money. We know it takes money to make the show, but if people enjoy it, wouldn't more money come? Its entertainment, it should be fun. Who knows, speaking out could be helpful to the people making the show, the show itself and to us, especially those of us who want to say how they feel but can't or are scared to. Do it for them, for you, for everyone, because if some people can do the examples mentioned earlier and get it in the TV shows, they had to have good reasons, so why can't this be one of the good reasons too? Why can't we ask too? We care about the show too, we want it to be more exciting to watch too. We actually all have the same thing in common, and that's, we're all asking for what we want to be put in the show, because it would make us happy. True it wouldn't be fair if we got what we wanted and those who like romance were left out. That is why, there should be a way to give everybody what it is they're asking. Please, tmnt fans reading this, if you want something to change in the 2012 show, whether its the romance, or development of characters, or because its boring, say something. We need you to help make a change to get the show as fun as it was before.
