Seriously? They went there?  
I was leafing through On Demand's listings on cable a few minutes ago. HBO has a whole bunch of episodes of a fairy tale show called "Happily Ever After" available, and I was browsing the summaries that On Demand provides, just out of curiosity.

Is it just me, or is describing Hans Christian Anderson's "Steadfast Tin Soldier" as "heartwarming" kind of ... insensitive?

If I hadn't seen the really dark humor On Demand uses in their FearNet blurbs, I wouldn't think it was deliberate. As it is, though ... man.

At least they didn't say heart melting.

People can't say "tragic" when they talk about fairy tales. They can't be tragic, because they're fairy tales. Much like comic books can't be "legitimate works of literature."

These generalizations are, of course, horseshit.
