What's the Name of That Chick With the Long Hair?

I was going to use that title when my post was going to focus on mainly just the season premiere of Lost but so much more has happened to me recently. Anyway, after seeing that season premiere the other day, I have scenes from the Star Trek episode "Shore Leave" in my head but I'm sure there is another explanation for what was found in the hatch. We'll have to see, of course.

I also saw the series premiere of Invasion which bares quite the resemblance to a novel of the same name by Robin Cook but the details are so different that I don't believe it's actually based on the that book. It's not too bad so I'll probably watch it more. Oh, and just so you know, caring optional, I didn't see Surface because it looked way too lame. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

In other news, Wednesday, I was contacted by a woman, who turned out to be really hot btw, from an employment agency representing a payroll company. They saw my resume posted online. Today, I went to their office downtown to fill out the paperwork, watch a video on work safety and take some computerized tests on data entry, Excel and Word. She'll give the information to this company, which is also downtown, and they may or may not call me for an interview. It's 20 hours a week. Apparently, I get to choose which three, full, days I want to come in. Not too bad. The annoying part is I have to submit my time card info myself during the probationary period. The last time I went through an employment agency, the company did it for me...

Well, yes, it's a stupid complaint but I want to be the lazy one, damn it!

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…

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…
