RIP Mace. :( Dead in the Framework, braindead in the real world, dead is dead. You will be missed.

YES DAISY GETS HER POWERS IN THE FRAMEWORK, I'M READY FOR THIS

 

lol at Jemma's explanation of whether or not Coulson and Grant Ward were friends or not.

 

I bet that somehow blue soap, which we're all dismissing as a joke, might actually not be a joke.

Is Agents of Shield even canon at this point?

I'm stupefied by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend second season series finale. How did such an emotionally affecting episode, one that could maybe redeem the whole season, end in such soul-crushingly terrible two minutes? Rebecca should have gotten her shit together over this Josh thing by the mid-finale... of the freaking first season, but now we will get 3 seasons of it. Oh joy.

 

I stayed for Rachel Bloom's charm and the musical numbers, not sure if that will be enough for me next season.

 

I don't quite follow. The stakes are entirely inverted now. Also, Rebecca is not a healthy individual, that's part of why this is engaging and fascinating.

It's part of the reason I haven't seen anything beyond the third or fourth episode. I can only stomach a cast of characters who continually or almost exclusively make unhealthy decisions so much before I get frustrated with them.

Fortunately for Tele, he enjoys nothing more than watching young people suffer.

There's actually a few pretty-well adjusted characters who're used as good counter-points to Becks (and others), but if you only lasted a few episodes, I can't remember when their relationship became prominent. As for Ms. Bunch, it's one of the few (maybe only) shows that deals honestly and believably with forms of high-functioning mental illnesses like depression or bipolar disorder.... in a musical/comedy format, no less.

Which is great and fantastic and all and I like it in theory. But it doesn't make me want to watch the next episode when I finish an old episode or go back to it really.

Characters need to evolve, and it doesn't need to be for the better. Just don't regurgitate the same thing over and over again. 

 

They are stretching this Josh story far beyond the reasonable. Reversed stakes won't make much of a difference, Rebecca will surely engage with other men, leave them for Josh, split up for whatever reason, then move on from him, looping back to the beginning. It happened multiple times, and it will happen again.

WTF?  I just read his Wikipedia. So basically he was probably a serial killer.

Personally, when I was younger I enjoyed almost any film.


Then I watched a lot of the classics and saw what films can be like, so the average film these days does not do much for me.

I miss the days when 102 Dalmatians was a good time at the movies.
