  1. Read them; they're excellent. I enjoy the show and I think it's a pretty faithful adaptation, but the books will give you a lot more information about daemons and the church, plus more insight into people's character (especially Lyra's).
  2. I dunno, they traded MK for Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, which is more of a side-grade than anything. They may get one good season out of this -- RAS's other shows started off strong enough -- but if it goes past that it'll devolve into a mess. His shows remind me of Ryan Murphy's in that way.
  3. This girl hated the movie so much she made a YouTube channel just to rant about it. She's super knowledgeable and this is an interesting, fun watch.
  4. I'm not sure how to feel about this one. I'm sure the writer was trying to make a point about how rape cases are difficult or even impossible to prove either way because they come down to "he said/she said," but even though the ending was technically left open to interpretation, I feel like we were supposed to believe that Alex was a dick but still the innocent victim of a couple of women pulling a scam. False rape allegations are so rare that I hate to see a plot with that outcome... I feel like it normalizes the idea that lots of women are faking this stuff to get back at men who they feel have wronged them. It's just not happening. I did really like the point about innocent people's lives being ruined based solely on allegations, and I'm also fine with ambiguous endings. I'm just not sure that rape was the best subject to use here.
  5. This is a good analysis from someone to whom The Ballad of Mulan means a lot.

  9. I thought this was okay. Visually, it was beautiful; I liked looking at it. Sometimes I felt like the story lagged, while other times I felt like too much happened too fast. The fifth battalion immediately went from not caring if Mulan died to letting her lead them. Xianniang sacrificed herself for Mulan after speaking to her only twice. I thought Mulan's relationships with her father and Chen were well-developed, though, and the fight scenes were great. Overall I don't regret watching it, but probably won't ever rewatch.
  10. I felt like I was the only person here defending Skye for a long time. I liked her immediately. I was never on the FitzSimmons romance train, but in my defense, neither were the actors; they did a few interviews where they talked about how they felt like they had sibling chemistry. I think the show ended up doing a great job with their story, but I was still disappointed that a good platonic m/f friendship turned into yet another romance.
  11. Me too. Javicia Leslie herself sounds awesome, but every other character and every storyline is so tied to Kate Kane herself, not to Batwoman, that I have no idea how this is going to work. Part of me wonders if Ryan Wilder will only be Batwoman for a while... if Alice will have a gravely injured Kate off somewhere captive/recuperating and she'll come back later, all healed up with a new face. Ryan Wilder could stick around as a main cast member, just not as Batwoman (perhaps as another recognizable comic book heroine -- I'm still holding out hope that Ryan Wilder is an alias). The showrunner has been clear that she doesn't want to kill off Kate Kane, but I don't know if that's because she doesn't want to add to the dead TV lesbian count or because she plans to bring the character back. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it pans out. I'll watch at least for a while, regardless, and I hope it's just as good as, or better than, season one.
  12. Please no! PLL was nonsensical enough; we don't need Riverdale fingerprints all over it...

    I knew I recognized him from somewhere but I couldn't quite place him. Andrew Keegan! I hadn't thought about him in ages. I was disappointed when I remembered these episodes were only a half hour each; it was a quick binge! I thought these final episodes tied things up nicely, although some of the resolutions felt rushed (e.g., Tabitha dumped Ben almost immediately after getting Moe's blessing, and Jillian got over not wanting to deal with Elodie's addiction incredibly quickly). I'm glad they got to write a satisfying ending for the series, though.
