This week, a lot of the news has been All Hillary, All The Time, but still I have some other interesting tidbits to report. Let’s get started:
It is a peak time to be a Marvel fan right now. Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming close to finally opening. Agent Carter was an awesome miniseries, and Daredevil is blowing up social media. I figured I would countdown all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe properties, including both the television and movie properties. However, this list only includes […]
Can we all go move to an island somewhere or something? Because the next two years with Republicans running the House and Senate are NOT looking fun. And it was a week of shitstorms and terrible people and all kinds of other assorted fuckery. Fun times! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
At the beginning of May, the axe dropped on my new favorite show, Almost Human. Fox killed another sci-fi show. Big surprise there. That makes three pretty good sci-fi shows in the last twenty years they have canceled, Space Above and Beyond, and appearing later on this list, Firefly.
This year’s TV landscape seems to be littered with bodies. No spoilers, it’s just that shows have killed a lot of people. We have obviously addressed some of these issues already on Persephone. I had a coworker remark that four shows she watched had deaths in one week, in mid-March I believe. Obviously, the grim reaper […]
While I was finishing up my final papers, the lady blogosphere was rockin’ it.
Oh dear. There is just so much wrong with the world this week. A little bit of good news, but a lot more that’s positively rage-inducing. At least there’s an awesome Stephen Colbert smackdown! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
That don’t bother me at all. Plenty of the news appetizers are quite bothersome, however.
I just cannot get into this show. I feel bad for saying that. I am the official recapper, after all. I gave myself five episodes to like it. This is episode four. My brain is realizing this is not a Joss Whedon show; it is a show with his name as a producer only. It […]
Forewarning to all reading this: I am in a DayQuil-induced haze fighting a mean cold, so much snarkiness abounds. I sat down hoping that this episode was going to be better than the second one. I knew there was a villain being introduced because S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Twitter and Facebook were all about the #Origin and #Villain. […]
The leaves are getting crisp. Giant men are hitting each other for fun. Jam is being made. It is fall, which to me means new TV shows and old TV shows. Well, it means TV in general. One of the best parts of TV shows are their theme songs. I love the intersection of music […]
After last week’s pilot episode, I kind of knew what to expect from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I knew it was going to be a superhero procedural with a Whedon twist. I knew that Marvel and Disney were giving them movie budgets for the whole season. It has delivered on that promise so far, albeit a bit […]
When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was first announced as an idea, this fan girl squeeed. A new Joss Whedon show combined with the Marvel Universe? That sounded like the best damn match made in heaven. After all, The Avengers was an awesome movie. A lot of people were wondering if this show was ever going to work. […]
With school starting and Labor Day weekend already gone by, it can mean only one glorious thing. The fall TV season is coming. Before, fall TV season used to be a much more anticipated event than it is now. With shows like Breaking Bad having summer runs, networks no longer put up crap in the […]
Growing up a fan of giant monsters and giant robots, I was excited when Guillermo Del Toro announced he was working on a mecha vs kaiju film. Del Toro is a fanboy at heart so I trusted he would take the source material and put his spin on it. His handling of Hellboy really spoke […]
