    The Netflix show “Spirit Riding Free” is grinding my gears for partially that reason. The other reason is that they’re lazy writers, but the setting is at least partially responsible for that. They want to set it vaguely Old West-ish, but it’s not really working. They could really up their game by making changes like setting it as a SPACE western (like Firefly), and maybe that would open up enough writerly opportunities that I wouldn’t feel obligated to yell at the screen every 5 minutes for all their lazy and ahistorical horsepoop.

What do you think?
