Guilty Crown. Maaaaaan, Guilty Crown. My feelings on this show are somewhat well documented, and as you might understand picking just one moment from this colossal trainwreck is a nigh impossible task. I could list all possible ones, but that would just read like a breakdown of the entire plot.
By what criteria do we judge a suitable moment from Guilty Crown. When it jumped the shark? But was there ever a time when it wasn’t flying high over the ocean? Its most offensive scene? Offending what? My morals, my intellect, my very being? Its dumbest bit? See my arguments above against listing all possible moments.
No, I had to go a different route. This crowning moment is chosen not for its stupidity or offensiveness or anything like that, for there were plenty worse, but for being the one moment where I lost the ability to even articulate any thoughts or questions regarding the staff’s creative decisions. Other times I could at least see what they were trying to accomplish, or it was so obvious that they had no idea what they were doing and were just pulling whatever they could out of their arses. This one scene though… this one scene.
