Re: WANDAVISION (SPOILERS, SWEETIE!)

What sucks for me is that those goofy comedy/social awkwardness moments hit my anxiety dead on. Stupid generalized anxiety disorder. I actually find the intrusions of the weird and other-ness comforting. So far the show has been hard for me to watch, but things seem to be escalating in that regard, ...

Re: Trump/Republican Coup Thread

Hang on... Does this mean that 186 representatives are OK with Trump behaving like he does??? What the actual fuck? What is WRONG with these people? Tribalism? That and threats -- both physical and to possible re-election in the future. Mostly, they say, the former. To which AOC and other democrats...

Re: Wonder Woman 1984 Discussion Thread (spoilers)

I recently saw a video regarding what may have happened, and it may be that the 'end' of the DCEU project/Snyderverse caused a lot of reworking/rewriting, later on, so whatever it was going to be was changed time and again, and what was left was a mess. Regardless, I am curious to hear what happened...

Re: Wonder Woman 1984 Discussion Thread (spoilers)

I think this review points out the problems with the film rather well. I haven't seen it yet, and this review has got me in the "Yikes!" side of how things have been done. Which sucks, I like the character, I liked the last film (flawed though it was). But this just sounds... repugnant.

Re: BBC America Greenlights "CSI: Ankh-Morpork"

Indeed. From what little I've read of the series, making a "faithful" adaptation that's also enjoyable would be pretty difficult. A lot of the humor of Discworld, for me at least, comes from the asides and background details rather than the events themselves. ... And now I'm picturing a D...

Just some notes, because I love how this has gone so far. Well, there's also the tradition thing. Slayers may be expendable, but at the same time, the Council probably has strong taboos against killing them (and humans in general). Especially as Watchers who have actually worked with a Slayer may of...

Revamping Buffy Season 8: Slayers Around the World and their Organiation

I've been thinking of Buffy as of late, and I wanted to at least work out in print/spitball some thoughts on Season 8 through 12 of the series (the comics, for those that don’t remember). They do have their shining moments, and some nifty ideas, but they also have quite a few (big) stumbles. For tho...

Re: DC Animated “Justice League DARK”… and its crushing disappointment. [SPOILERS]

I think the fact that they thought to incorporate elements from godddamn "Future's End" - one of the worst crossover stories DC has ever produced, tells me exactly how bad it is without even seeing it.
