Smallville was interesting. The psycho woman angle has been done perhaps one to many times but the episode had many things that intrigued me. I loved the scene where Jonathan walked in on Clark and Alicia. That doesn't happen enough on TV these days. I was intrigued by Alicia's powers. Nightcrawler can't teleport somewhere he's never been but she can. Cool. I also like that there was a special room that blocked her from teleporting. You knew she'd find out about the kryptonite and go after Lana but those are probably minor nitpicks. Everyone goes after Lana on this show. So Adam was sent by Lionel to spy and Lionel's using Clark's blood to bring people to life. That's totally awesome. I honestly didn't see that angle.

Angel totally rocked. Even as a puppet, he kicks Spike's ass. Great scene. This episode reminded me of Meet the Feebles bit much cooler. I'm glad Nina returned. It's been too long since there was a werewolf character.

Odd how art, sort of, imitates life. Fred practically threw herself at Wes and he didn't notice until she came right out and said it. Nina was the same way with Angel although it was the whole office not her that pointed it out to him. Now, these instances aren't really connected to my situation but I found it odd nonetheless.

I received advice from two people on what to do. Thank you both. One suggested that I tell her immediately while the other suggested I try again with inviting her on a non-date outing. Here's the latest: last night, I arrive at the cafeteria and see her and one of my other dormmates. She tells me that they were just leaving because she had to get to class. She knows that I know her class didn't start for another hour. If she was interested in me as something more than a friend, I would think she'd stick around longer...This means she isn't interested or the thought never occurred to her which, in my experience, means the same damn thing.

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…

The Blog Comes Around

Went to see Logan yesterday. I had already read tweets claiming it was the "best X-men film to date" which, to be honest, is not the highest of bars to leap over.  After seeing it, I would go much further with my praise. It doesn't really have the feel of a comic book film at all. This leaves both Spider-man 2 and The Dark Knight  in the dust in this respect...

To me, it feels more like a post-apocalyptic film (a genre that seems to get more critical praise, or at least scrutiny, incidentally.)  You have a small group of people, last of their kind, making the journey to Eden. This is the trope found in that genre. Death and bleakness, found also in Westerns, is evident from the Johnny "Man in Black" Cash songbook and the inclusion of Elizabeth Rodriguez best known from the show Orange is the New Black! (Sure, possibly a coincidence but if not? Sweet!) Just because it includes characters from comic, I'm pretty sure award voters will not see it in this respec…

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 …
