Title Meaning

  • Don't Hate the Player, Hate the Brain - A lot of people have an anger towards Liv because of the way she acts when she's on different brains, the title means don't hate Liv, hate the brain she's on. The saying comes from "Don't Hate the Player, Hate the Game"[1], which means "If someone is good at something, don't hate them for it, hate the thing they are good at", however, here it means "Don't hate on the person who did something, but rather on the system that allows them to do what they do".
