    S03.E08: AKA Camera Friendly

    Maybe it is just because I watched Foxcatcher a few week ago but wrestling coach is something that I now instantly associate with creepy. Also I had to laugh about how much media coverage The Masked Vigilante was getting as if any media outlet in the MCU would care. I doubt there is some newspaper editor saying how they are tired of writing stories about the Avengers and Spider-Man and Ant-Man and SHIELD and Daredevil. And when reporters are asked what else they have someone says they have a story about a woman who can jump off a bridge, and they decide to put that on the front page.

    S03.E08: Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt

    What is kind of funny is that everyone who is living in Joyce's new house will have gone into the upside down except for Jonathan. And the only other known, living person who has visited the upside down is Nancy (if you assume Hopper is dead).

    Probably except the leaders of Gilead are nothing if not giant hypocrites. I could see them looking the other way especially for aunts just so they don't have to deal with lady stuff.

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    Doesn't mean the Guardians couldn't show up in Thor 4.

    Yea I knew it was bullshit, unless of course Gilead had guns with so much power they can do that. Noelle asked her if she was ever married or something, and she said something vague about how their used to be someone in her life. Could mean she was divorced or I guess widowed or I guess just in a serious thing that never turned to marriage.

    Of course I underestimated the colonies. Although it seems like unmarried women who aren't Aunts/Handmaids or Martha's would be a pretty significant portuon of the population. If Gilead is actually at war with the US then liberating some colonies would seem like a great way to boost the population of anti-Gilead people. I also thought it was interesting that Lydia said she was with someone before but it didn't work out. Any guesses on what that meant? Divorced or just dumped? Also any guesses on where her school was? I saw some map that showed the whole US and said land of the free and I thought I saw something that said Golden Gate. Lastly I am really surprised that we don't see more outbursts like OfMatthew's. I mean we have only really seen her, Emily and the woman who blew up the handmaid centre do anything. But you would think with the trauma these women experience and how effective fighting back seems to be (she killed a guard with a pickle jar!) it would be happening all the time.

    No wonder other countries are scared of Gilead's military, they have guns so powerful that if you get shot with one it can knock you into some crazy backflip. Also when June was talking about the limited career choices for women in Gilead it made me wonder: when Gilead took over what happend to all the unmarried women who weren't qualified to be Aunts but too old to be handmaids? If only the ruling class has servants, they can't all be Martha's can they? Also I find it kind of funny that there is a grown man in Gilead who has risen to the rank of commander but still goes by the name Andy. Unless Andy Richter is a commander.

    Wait, I Think I Saw This Already: Remakes and Reboots

    I am right there with you, the only reason I knew it made 300 million was How Did This get Made. As far as a remake, people not really thinking about it maybe works in its favour since people will have forgotten the dumb sequels. Plus I imagine it would be a low risk high potential reward thing. Just get a basic script/ low budget, maybe with a CGI baby and get some hot comic to be the baby inner monologue like John Mulaney or Tiffany Haddish or (ugh) James Cordon. Then if it makes anything close what the original madw it would be hugely profitable.
  9. To be fair the Incredibles movies are supposed to be set in the 1960's so Bob having to adjust to being a stay at home dad works in that context.

    S03.E08: Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt

    I think the theory the kids had that the mindflayer survived in the world after the gate was closed was just a theory. I think in reality the mind flayer was able to come back because the Russians opened the gate. But since the kids didn't know that they just took a guess. Plus at the very end of season 2 they showed that the mind flayer was back in the Upside down not in real world Hawkins.

    S05.E03: Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too

    As much as I am tired of the brain/personality gets downloaded into a computer storyline (seriously so tired of it) the hardass version of Ashley Too was really funny. I liked the whole thing but I really enjoyed the first half, because the Ashley Too device seemed like something that wasn't too far off As for the second half, I am not sure why they needed to do the whole scan your brain for lyrics thing. It seemed unnecessarily and total bullshit. They were just cheesy pop songs, so get someone else to write them and say you found her songbook. Also why would you evem need the Ashley hologram to be motion capture?

    Wait, I Think I Saw This Already: Remakes and Reboots

    Reasons being probably something to do with the original making something like $300 million dollars in 1989. The domestic gross adjusted for inflation is higher than the last Ant man movie. For how simple a movie idea it is, I am surprised it hasn't come back sooner.

    S03.E07: AKA The Double Half-Wappinger

    I don't expect this to happen but I would kind love it if the Geri representing Sallinger storyline only lasted 10 minutes because Jessica theeatens to report Geri to the Bar association. I mean I am no lawyer but it seems like a massive conflict of intetest for Geri, who has served as Jessica'a lawyer, to be representing a guy accusing her of framing him. I used to really like Trish, even last season, but I really hope that this attention grabbing shit totally blows up her life and makes her a tabloid target worse than being a trainwreck child star did.

    The Stranger Things Wishlist: What We Want To Happen

    Some real mom parenting moments between Joyce and El next season. Because El needs it and I think Joyce really cares a lot about her. There were some great scenes of that back in season 1 when they built the sensory deprivation tank to find Will back in season 1.

    S03.E07: Chapter Seven: The Bite

    It reminded me of the pilot epsode of Lost where the castaways are looking into the jungle from the beach and the smoke monster is making noises and knocking down trees.
