Not a Bad Evening

Enterprise was pretty good last night. It wasn't a sweeps episode really but what can you do? John Billingsley is a fabulous actor. (Why are the doctors of Star Trek almost always the best characters?) To that I must also add that wasn't it convenient that the one crewmember who's immune happens to be the doctor? Oh well... Was that scene with Phlox naked necessary? Why would his hallucinations tell him to sleep when we know Denobulans don't sleep aside from hibernating for like 48 hours every so often? If T'Pol was just a hallucination then what if there was a medical problem with the real one? Phlox apparently wasn't checking her. I'm not saying that's not realistic but I was just wondering. I loved that scene with Archer waking up and Porthos hoping up to see him. I could swear he was saying "That crazy man almost shot me!"

Guess what? I wrote like 1500 words last night! Hey! Considering I haven't written a word since the death of my muse in October I'm impressed and you should be too. I finished my "Loki's Revenge" story. Click the "Fan Fic Written By Me" link and check it out.

So I watched Saturday Night Live last night with friends, including Her, in the TV lounge in the basement. Christina Aguilera was actually pretty funny. (Or at least the writers were.) I absolutely love Horatio Sanz as Ozzie. Sanz isn't funny most of the time in my opinion, I reference the Walgreen sketch last night to give an example, but he was dead on there. And who knew Amy Poehler, who also isn't funny most of the time either but still hot, could do Sharon so well?

Ok, more comments about my love life. Just when I'm content to just let the matter drop, she appears everywhere. She appeared in my bathroom last night while I was brushing my teeth. Ok, she was in the TV lounge so that was the nearest bathroom but I didn't know that at the time. Are these signs from God or something or am I losing my mind?

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…
