The Loop (TV)
Do you like this video?
- Audience-Alienating Premise: Kirk Cameron drugs and kidnaps children to work on his farm and entertain his disabled sister.
- Glurge: The parts that don't feel like Nightmare Fuel sure are, especially the scenes with Violet and Princess.
- Narm: Violet's jealousy meltdowns over her brother's growing romance with Carrie are a mix between this and Nightmare Fuel. While they are a bit unsettling to watch, they're also so ridiculously petty and whiny you can't help but roll your eyes.
- Purity Sue: Violet. Inspirationally Disadvantaged, her loneliness drives her brother to criminal acts to make her happy, and her hugs can cure an abused little girl's sadness. Her only flaws (if you can call them that) are being just a little selfish and demanding now and then and being clingy towards her older brother because he's all the family she has left.
- Snark Bait
- Unfortunate Implications: A white guy kidnaps a black kid to work on a farm, in a movie made in 1991. Who thought that was a good idea?
- Unintentionally Unsympathetic: We find out that Will's birth mother gave him up for adoption because she was blind, and Will cries while Carrie reads out loud a letter she wrote to him. But after the illegal, creepy shit he's pulled, are we really supposed to feel sorry for him?
- The Woobie: Princess comes closest to this trope. She acts like a cutesy sad little moppet, but we see her being abused, and her only escape from such a home life is being kidnapped and tricked into thinking she's dead.
