Didn't the Chinese government just flat-out BAN all fantasy/sci-fi elements from television and film last year?
I believe it was reported in the west under the headline of "China bans time travel" ... even though focusing on "time travel" is typical media stupidity when the much bigger picture is the fact that the entire genre of Chinese mythology is now HISTORY because of this.
Probably why there have been no fantasy series released in over a year now.
So how are they even allowed to air ZJZ's JTTW adaptation at ALL now?
And as for ramifications as they pertain to the future, that means you can forget about any more Chinese Paladins.
Plus, considering what the Chinese government is trying to censor, I am also wondering if this extends to the wuxia genre as well. If not now, it probably will.
Seems like China is just trying to get rid of all stimulating entertainment, period ...
... wouldn't want the population to get any ideas about rising up against the oppressive censorship and [sarcasm]wonderful[/sarcasm] socialist values.
