the new MacGyver

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

I have now seen all two episodes of the new new MacGyver! (PS Episode 2 even passes the Bechdel test!) The thing is, it’s kind of a weird show. Concept-wise it’s got some problems, and character-wise there is a whole lot of awkward happening. On the other hand, I watched TWO EPISODES, which is two […]

Friday fic rec

Friday, May 15th, 2015

I only just now realized that I opened my bag of crackers at the bottom instead of the top. And I’ve been eating them for… oh, probably half an hour. We definitely need a Friday! And a fun fic: where one starts from, by AlchemyAlice It’s possible this fic would be even more enjoyable if […]

quick thoughts on Daredevil

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

So I watched the pilot episode for the Daredevil netflix series. It was okay. Kind of bleak, I thought. (It is possible I am overly influenced by Dardevil’s appearance(s) in Spiderman: The Animated Series, which I watched an awful lot of in the 1990s. He was somewhat less than charming towards Spiderman.) The new series […]

Monday memorable quote

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

When we saw Jupiter Ascending in IMAX (awesome!), we also saw a preview for Furious 7. And I’ve been thinking about it a lot (because when presented with a popcorn-action-movie my first response is to overthink it). And it made me think of that one Wiseguy fic (which totally ends well despite the sad tone […]

1. Girl Scout Cookies: ordered. 2. Laundry: one load in the washer, one load in the dryer. 3. Breakfast: first or second? 4. Countable viewing: Agent Carter is playing in another tab as I type. [Thoughts on Agent Carter: I like it? But I’m used to the pace and reward level of reading fanfic. If […]

for the record

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

I solemnly promise to stream the first two episodes of ‘Agent Carter’ in a fully countable-by-the-network way as soon as they are available on hulu. (Until then, all bets are off.)

old news by now

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Sleepy Hollow is back! I have actually only seen the season opener, because I haven’t been keeping up. (The second ep should be up on Hulu by now; it’s on my list of things to see, at some point.) Anyway, the point is: tumblr has shown me pictures of the new character Nick Hawley, and […]

T-minus 7 days

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Packing Stage: I miss my things. It’s not like they’re gone; just in boxes. And those boxes are right here! But opening them up and taking stuff out feels like a step backwards. [On a note that’s only related to the title — I wish that show would come out on netflix. (Seven Days, in […]
