So you know how Hayley Atwell basically wowed everyone so much that they gave her her own One-Shot and then her own show, Agent Carter? Well, I want that for Jaimie Alexander and Lady Sif. I want a television show (or mini-series) where she comes to Earth and fights bad guys and gets confused by Earth customs and is… » 12/17/14 11:29pm Yesterday 11:29pm

That reminded me of an episode of Angel called "Spin the Bottle" where a spell reverts the group's minds to their old selves - i.e. Cordelia being a conceited cheerleader, Wesley being a prat, etc. Angel is reverted back to being Liam, an Irish lout from the 1800s. When he comes across a radio and Cordy turns it off,… » 12/14/14 7:25pm Sunday 7:25pm

We still don't know what that writing means - we know that the carvings are a blueprint of the hidden city and that they were done probably by one of the TAHITI patients and relate to the Kree. But the actual writing is from the comics - as "Skrullese." So, uh, maybe Chitauri? Perhaps some writing on a Chitauri vessel? » 12/08/14 10:25pm 12/08/14 10:25pm

The History of Jessica Jones

So the next Nextflix show after Daredevil will be Jessica Jones. And there's a very good probability that Krysten Ritter will play her (I'm hedging my bets, since there's no official announcement yet, but it looks really good for Ritter). But who, you ask, is Jessica Jones? She hasn't been around as long as, say,… » 12/05/14 12:05am 12/05/14 12:05am

Fun fact: Roy G. Bivolo's actual supervillain name is "Rainbow Raider." Also, he is not, in fact, the gay villain in Flash's Rogue Gallery (that would be Pied Piper). They just made him rainbow-themed because, um, it was the Silver Age and they did stuff like that. » 12/02/14 7:07pm 12/02/14 7:07pm

"Let Us Make Good": Existentialism in Pop Culture (Part One)

Existentialism is a complex philosophy, the main gist of which is that the world is essentially meaningless and that humans must make their own choices in order to imbue meaning for themselves and the world. It's a complicated philosophy, but one that has been the subject of numerous books, as well as, surprisingly, a… » 11/29/14 12:54am 11/29/14 12:54am
