currently watching season 4 of orange is the new black. good and hilarious. yes yes i know you said 5 is great. im not a premature ejaculator so i'll hold it till it comes.

also watching an old hbo thing on amazon about queen elizabeth the ancient one. with helen mirren in it. the story is so-so but she is so fucking good in it it's highly watchable.

also: 12 monkeys season 2. as terrible as season 1 but good to have on while trying to repair broken iphones lolololol.

(my super-ancient 4s is still rocking as my pomodoro timer though)

watching ENDEAVOR. which is a (50s?) period piece based on the young INSPECTOR MORSE. never seen morse actually, but i saw a bit of his successor, INSPECTOR LEWIS, which was okay

anyway, endeavor looks pretty well made! but as detective period pieces go so far GEORGE GENTLY takes the cake.

The National Parks: America's Best Idea

 


This stuff is on Amazon and just caught the first couple of hours of it. Mostly about Yosemite, Yellowstone and John Muir.

Pretty fucking great so far. Also depressing, because humans are utter shit.

This is great. And yes, depressing.

I've always liked Ken Burns. I've sat through Baseball and Civil War multiple times. I want him to do a series on the Beat Generation. I think that would just be awesome. Also, perhaps, boxing.

Supposed-to-be non-superhero comic-book television show, actually.

There are tons of smart superhero stories, but that's neither here nor there. Gotham, season 3, ends with the dumbest fucking shit ever. Holy fuck, so goddamn dumb I can't believe it. Seriously, I'd tell you to google it or something, but you probably need to have seen some of the show to appreciate just how dumb-as-all-holy-fuck that final scene is. Yowza.

Hey Symbols, are you still watching Doctor Who? Or did you give up before shit got fucking real?

Doctor Who is basically a superhero story, really. He's the British Superman: a god among men, with unthinkable powers that are purely mental instead of purely physical. An alien savior who reflects the ideal of humanity back at itself. Etc. And Doctor Who is smart AF.

Coo deal.
Where are you in the chronology? Have you made it to Tennant yet?

Some of the latter-day Tennant episodes are, in my mind, truly mind-blowing and brilliant. Not in a "The Wire" kind of way, of course, but in an exquisitely crafted HORROR kind of way (see episodes: "MIDNIGHT" (ohmigodmidnight!), "SILENCE IN THE LIBRARY.) Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the one-two lunch of "THE IMPOSSIBLE PLANET" and "THE SATAN PIT," which is not one of the later episodes, but still might be my favorite fucking thing ever on television... maybe.

Have you seen any of these?

The Doctor peaks with Tennant, but those who follow don't really slack either. The stories and overarching themes get more intense AFTER Tennant, actually, as "one-off" and standalone stories become less and less frequent during the Smith years. Oh, and production values go up as the audience got back into it. Some of those Smith episodes could almost work as movies. No shit.

Was Missy not INIFITELY better than the Master?
Was River Song not a total fucking badass?
I'd watch an entire show devoted to either of those female Timelords/half-Timelords. Absolutely. So what's the rub?

I guess I'd be a little taken aback if Clark Kent suddenly became, like, Chloe Kent, and Superman became a chick (we already have Supergirl and even Superwoman), but there's a lot more flexibility with the Doctor. Maybe that makes me a sexist (the taken-abackness) but I say nope.

I just laugh at anybody in fandoms that gets pissy about introducing heroines into sci-fi worlds. Same happened with Rey in Star Wars. Cause you can create a sci-fi universe that promotes infinite possibilities and alien species, but make it focused on a female and a percentage of vocal fans will cry over them ruining a great universe by incorporating a female hero into it.
