  1. I agree with you there - there are many different groups of people that have been discriminated against over history, and you can never really know what another person has experienced. But when we're talking about Kevin, from what the show has portrayed he's not in any group that has been a part of systematic discrimination. I don't think he's going to have or really understand that experience, regardless of what other trouble in his life he may have. I say that as a Kevin fan! I think ageism has been mentioned, but that also affects women more than men in Hollywood, and I don't think he's old
  2. So the definition includes "marginalized groups such as racial or ethnic minorities". Of course women are marginalized. Racial and ethnic minorities are an example of marginalized groups (as indicated by the "such as").
  3. No, they don't. Definition of micro aggression: a statement, action, or incident regarded as an instance of indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination against members of a marginalized group such as a racial or ethnic minority. Kevin certainly has trauma/issues carried over from his childhood as a result of Jack and Rebecca's mistakes as parents. They are valid, and they've affected him. But he hasn't experienced micro aggressions. White people aren't marginalized. Men aren't marginalized. Kevin is a white man. He's not a part of a religious minority, he's straight, he's cis-g
  4. I think they were concerned about the out of norm meetings. I found it quite funny when Philip mentioned that all of the children phoned him up to ask what was wrong and why she was meeting with each of them. I'm assuming he let them know there wasn't anything to concerned about. But it's quite sad too, to get a lunch invitation from your mother and wonder what the real reason is. It must have been incredibly rare for her to spend time with them just because!
  5. I think it was her own car. They showed her singing while driving back.
  6. Super later but I've only just got around to watching. Tbh I was also wondering this lol - and I thought maybe menstrual blood. The Haruspex said you use what you use to create life, so sperm for men and an egg (menses) for women would be my guess.
  7. The Spectres aren't Dust, but they must be attracted by Dust (which seems to settle on adults only per the experiments in Season 1). Children don't attract as much dust and are free from attack until they grow up. Mary was told to go Cittagazze by the Angels, which are different from Spectres.
  8. It was a short conversation he had with Lee in the show that's expanded in the books - but since he wasn't able to find his way back to his own world, he became a scholar in Lyra's and has been traveling on expeditions / studying etc. The first episode of the show Asriel references him as another scholar of Jordan college whose expedition was lost.
  9. Yeah, most of the show wasn't bad - they kept the supernatural elements subtle and focused on mystery solving until the end. But the last episode was a disappointment. I wish they'd just done a traditional mystery. I don't they would've needed to change much to keep it real.
  10. For what it's worth I think this is much better than the CW's Nancy Drew. It does have the friends chipping in to help, but the focus is definitely on the Hardy Boys solving the mystery. Haven't really read the originals though apart from a couple, so it very well could be "in name only," - but as a mystery show it's not bad, and the kid playing Joe is pretty great. I believe the mom was a journalist. If anyone else is watching - are they implying that Jessie & Trudy are in a relationship? They're not actually doing anything that friends wouldn't do, but I got a vibe between them that
  11. Fair enough! I never read the books that I can remember, might have been only 1 or 2 if I did, but I read most of Nancy Drew! The CW show was a disappointment.
  12. I don't think the following explanation about Boreal/Cittagazze/Spectres is a spoiler, but is technically from a conversation that takes place later in Book 2 than what we've come to so far in the show.
  13. Is there something wrong with the listed actors? Or just that you don't recognize any of them? At first I thought maybe the 70s, but I think I read somewhere that it was the 80s. The grandmother is Laura's mom. I actually initially thought Trudy was Laura's sister, then realized there were all staying in Fenton and Trudy's childhood home. I'm enjoying it so far - it's certainly way better than the Nancy Drew reboot on CW! Some parts are a bit silly, but it's entertaining enough. It reminds me of Home Before Dark on Apple TV, but with less of a focus on an adult storyline. The kid
  14. I agree, and I think it stuck with him. I believe he brings it up during his phone conversation with Kate. He says something like "I know Randall had it tough being the only black kid at that school, but you can't say mom and dad didn't do their best."
