Surprise! Not Doing Work!

Angel rocked last night. Angel has no reason to help Spike and many reasons to hate his "grandson." One being Spike got to have sex with Buffy frequently. Um...That may be it really. Anyway, how could they have had a werewolf episode and not even make reference to Oz? Seth Green is a big time star so he has no time to appear but shouldn't he have been at least mentioned? If I remember correctly, Angel and Oz got along fine. John Billingsley must have quite the contract to appear on Stargate: SG-1 and this show since all three are done by three different production companies. The previews say there will be brief nudity next week so set your VCR, Lady Vader!

Why has no one ever come up with kryptonite bullets before? That seems like a no brainer to me although, I will admit, even I had never thought of it. Once again, Lana complains Clark won't let her in. He was telling her the truth though. He did not gain special abilities from the meteor. Quite the opposite in fact. I hope Clark doesn't take Lana's comment about how she wished the meteor shower never happened too seriously. If she knew the truth about the matter, she'd fell differently.

In case I forget to to talk about this with Sataideuce, or Deuce I guess he's calling himself these days, I read at Cinescape that a casting call has gone out for two new characters being added to Stargate: SG-1. To me, the addition of a "Col. Hooper" would seem to suggest the item in TV Guide this past summer about O'Neill being promoted would seem to be true. The other character is a female Daniel Jackson who apparently thought his ideas were crap! Officially, according to Cinescape, only Anderson has signed on for season 8. Does this mean Daniel Jackson will be gone again or that he'll have competition? GateWorld has mentioned nothing on the subject so far.

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

Setup Complete

When I wrote my blog post on the previous Netflix series, Luke Cage, I noted it was only about 90% as dark as Daredevil  and Jessica Jones. Iron Fist  is only about 90% as dark as that series.While that does make me question the Mature rating, I have no problem with that.

I feel in the mood to structure at least the beginning of this review on my feelings on complaints I've heard

1. The acting and writing: I'm sure my bar is lower than others but I feel people who feel the strongest about this have never watched movies on Lifetime or Hallmark. (Oddly, I read a comment on Twitter from a complainer that he had higher hopes for Cloak and Dagger on Freeform than  Inhumans on ABC. Special effects budget, sure but writing and acting? I think that's an iffy wager at best but I digress.)

Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick are great as Danny Rand and Colleen Wing. Danny to me is just as a 25 year old man who spent 15 years cut off from the world as he knew it in a monastery (think ster…

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …
