    S03.E08: The Worst Possible Use of Free Will

    The show hasn't ever actually stated what set up the whole system, has it? The Judge is the highest authority we've seen and she's clearly neither omniscient nor omnipotent.
  2. Amen. Like, right now I could afford the $50 a month or so to hire a cleaning service to do my floors and a bit of scrubbing and dusting, and given the state of my home probably should. But having someone come in regularly to do that would just feel so weird and invasive.
  3. I suppose it's a question of one's goals. Aside from the paycheck, even the stuff people talk about as positives of a Hollywood career seem like they'd be horrible to me (fame, being on talk shows, having a whole staff of managers, assistants, and whatnot, constantly going to parties and industry events).

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    Hopefully that trend will continue and we'll get a wide variety of interesting treatments for super-heroism through a female lens. Certainly Valkyrie and the Wasp strike me as good candidates to be featured in their own movies once the Black Widow movie comes out, and Captain Marvel laid groundwork for a present-day Monica Rambeau story. I mourn the lost potential of Marvel not doing more with Lady Sif while Jamie Alexander was still primarily in their employ. Her guest appearances on Agents of SHIELD were highlights of that series, but I really think she could have provided the foundation for a good spinoff solo movie.

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    I don't think Marvel would be that quick to give up on their most historically popular character just because they now have the rights to franchises that have either failed multiple times in movie adaptations or have been largely played out with diminishing returns for years. Spider-Man has pulled in about twice the box office of the solo Iron Man movies, and the actor is a proven success in the role, as opposed to having to recast and hope for the best with the properties that have been recently regained.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I think that would be a bit too much to expect, and doubt Bucky himself would be all that broken up about not getting one.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Yeah, I hold Tony far more responsible for the other stuff he pulled in Civil War than his reaction to the truth behind his parents' deaths. That at least was an understandable reaction in the moment to a horrible loss, rather than convincing himself he could pay for his mistakes by declaring friends who disagreed with his views on oversight criminals and traitors.

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    I tried to watch it, but just couldn't get past Tom Hardy channeling Ratso from Midnight Cowboy.

    S04.E16: Hey World!

    I'm not sure that would even matter on a show where people get transformed into cats and puppets, and someone's raised from the dead by people singing Kumbaya. NATE: This explains a lot. It didn't make much sense when Behrad and I ended up dating despite us both being straight. ZARI: Trust me, it came out of nowhere when it was you and me too.

    Yikes! I guess I'm glad Dawber took that in the spirit of joking around rather than feeling violated, that could have been an awful situation for her.

    Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    I don't think I've ever heard a co-worker with any gripes about working with Williams, and you know he had to be exhausting to be around with all those frenetic improv riffs. That says to me he must have been genuinely nice and lovable enough to outweigh the annoyance factor.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Yeah, that's a job that just SCREAMS Black Widow to me. WTF were the writers smoking when they came up with that?
  13. Ah, that makes much more sense then! Given how closely the British press was following him back in his 10th Doctor days, I couldn't imagine how he kept a child out of the news.

    Joker (2019)

    I saw the trailer at the movies this past weekend, and immediately had a "hard pass!" reaction to it.
  15. I was surprised to find out that Tennant has an older child from a previous relationship—never heard a peep about that when he was on Doctor Who.
