  1. Reaction to casting Leslie has been mostly positive or at least hopeful from my general impressions. I hope they will hire more Black people for the writers room. One moe:
  2. A few congrats/welcome posts from the official social media:
  3. I can't say anything about its artistic merits, but The 100 backdoor pilot aired yesterday, and its ratings numbers are worse than the Canaries backdoor pilot. However, Arrow always had higher rating than The 100 anyway. Of course, I have no idea how much that factors into CW's decisions.
  4. Yes; also this. But I hated it even before the casting news.
  5. Also, I wasn't aware of this: https://www.oprahmag.com/entertainment/tv-movies/a33235786/baker-and-the-beauty-canceled-latinx-tv-shows/ I did mostly enjoy this while it was on, and was disappointed that it wasn't renewed. 😞
  6. Washington Post article about diversity and racism in TV writers rooms, with quotes from several writers:
  7. The entire situation with the previous lead actress leaving and bringing in a new character has been (will be?) messy; However, this makes her the first Black woman to lead a superhero show. Sorry, scratch that -- I was reminded of Regina King in Watchmen. So Javicia Leslie is the second. She is still the first Black woman to play a comic book character in the titular role. (Regina's character was not in the comics.)
  8. I'm hoping that Brandon gets to be a superhero too; but yes, Congrats to Javicia!!

  10. So now, she's the first Black woman to lead a superhero show, if I'm not mistaken. [ETA: I was mistaken; Regina King in Watchmen was the first.] I also wanted them to just recast Kate Kane, but I'm not upset at this casting. Helps that I know her from GFM. I was not expecting a Black actress, honestly. I for sure thought it would be another white actress or someone brown-ish at best. Hopefully, with a slightly older actress they re-write that "Ryan" backstory that was with the casting description. There are still episodes of God Friended Me up on CBS's website; but I don't know if that role would really show how she would do in this show, as the lead.
  11. I actually did want one of the cast from God Friended Me to show up on one of the DC shows, but I wasn't expecting Javicia!
  12. Ha! I like it, though. Whether she becomes an athlete or not.
  13. I hadn't heard of that, but I don't think it's the same.(?)
  14. New Netflix show: Trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX-QbcXyZug&feature=youtu.be
