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.

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…
