1. New Barney documentary to examine the 'human need to hate'

Barney the Dinosaur's Reputation era is here. Peacock has dropped a stunning trailer for its bizarre new documentary called I Love You, You Hate Me, which is about the "rise and fall of Barney the Dinosaur's furious backlash." Wait, did Barney get canceled and we completely missed it? The trailer begins with a lighthearted rendition of the Barney theme song before it warps into a nightmare version like something out of a Creepypasta, and Barney actor Bob West recalls receiving threats of "death and dismemberment of my family." Talking heads in the trailer recall there being violent backlash against Barney, with one mentioning rumors that "Barney hides drugs in his tail," and we even see footage of police cars and a man in handcuffs. Peacock says the documentary will explore this "Barney-bashing" and examine what it "says about the human need to hate." You've heard of Dark Brandon? Well, get ready for Dark Barney.
