What you all want to know I'm sure.

You want to know what I thought of Charmed and Alias don't you? Well lets start with Charmed: I hate Phoebe's hair but Piper was hot as a Valkerie. I don't really want ruin anything for people who haven't seen it so just get out of here if you want to be surprised.

You gone? Good.

What is Chris's game? I believe he is from the future but there's no way he's a Whitelighter and he doesn't seem like a Darklighter to me either. My first thought is he's after Wyatt maybe because Wyatt is perhaps a threat to him in the future. Wyatt is magically protected from harm, as we've seen several times, so killing him off would not be an easy task. That seems relatively obvious as is getting Leo out of the way so he'd be named their Whitelighter and have a legitimate reason to be around. Yet there's something missing...

For those who don't want to be spoiled on Alias now is your time to get lost.

This episode reminded me of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Future Imperfect" where Riker wakes up in sickbay supposedly 16 years later and Ferengi are in Starfleet and Admiral Picard is negotiating peace with the Romulans. (You notice all of this basically happened on Deep Space Nine?) Admittedly, I was watching this and Charmed at the same time so I don't really have much to say about this except you knew that they'd have evidence of Sydney killing someone during those missing two years. It's typical Alias but no less cool. I am very curious to what happened to her. Did Sloane have something to do with it as Sydney claims? My thought is Sark especially since he's still out there somewhere. Are they still going to reveal Sark is her half-brother or was that rumor unfounded? We will have to wait and see. I also prefer having Dixon in charge but Terry O'Quinn and Ronnie Cox are two actors who always play charcters you love to hate. Cox didn't on The Agency and wasn't good but that's a post for another time. Actually, since the show isn't on any more it'd be pointless to do so....

Thor Or Thunderstrike?

Marvel screwed the pooch with the Thor  franchise from the beginning. They took the more modern notion that the Asgardians are aliens not gods. In itself, that's fine but I can't help but think that just made it more complicated not less. (Wonder Woman  just killed them off which is better but that's still a big nitpick from me about THAT movie...)

I stopped regularly reading comics  after I graduated college in the early part of the century so I don't know when secret identities became passé but I think this also hurt the franchise. Originally, instead of dropping Thor on his head and giving him amnesia, Odin put him the mortal body of Donald Blake and then Eric Masterson. (Was that a complaint about Ghost Rider? Same concept really...)

In Thor: Ragnarok, to me, this '90's era of the comic where Eric Masterson WAS Thor was the best run of the comic and there were many Easter eggs from that period from Thor's Earth garb (with Mjolnir disguised as an umbrell…

Wasn't A Complete Punishment

Checking my Facebook Memories this morning, it is apparently the anniversary of my review of Jessica Jones.  In many reviews of  The Punisher Jessica Jones  is the pinnacle all other Marvel Netflix (or in some cases, Marvel shows on any network but that's a post for another time...) must be held to. I'll tell you straight out, I personally enjoyed both seasons of  Daredevil  more so... (Hell,  The Punisher  had a less annoying support cast...)

For reasons I didn't consider back then and don't care about now, comic books in the '90's saw the creation of more violent  characters to presumably dispel the notion comics weren't just for kids. Ironman, Thor, Captain America and, perhaps ironically, Batman got more gritty counterparts and the Punisher (and Deadpool) was created. Like most superheroes, Frank Castle's origins begin with the death of a family member; in his case, ALL OF THEM. In comics, it was due to be caught in the crossfire of a mob shootout…

Sunday Morning Movie Review

Black Panther was great. Just as  Wonder Woman  gave little girls a superhero to "look up to," little African boys (Yes, not just African American  boys) have their own hero. But what was even better about this movie is that it was so much more. It wasn't a stereotypical Eddie Murphy or Whitney Houston movie.  Even 5, 8 years ago, we wanted this to happen but this might have been just the right time. T'Challa is king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda that millennia ago became rich in a fictional mineral called vibranium that allowed them to  become the most technologically advanced country on Earth. They decided to keep this secret, however, and disguised themselves with a cloaking shield and the guise of a "shithole country." (See? Relevance!)

Wakanda has reached a crossroads. Xenophobia is really no longer working. The villain of the movie, Wakandan by blood but certainly not upbringing, Killmonger, takes the throne in an effort to take the Black…
