I was quite skeptical while reading this since I’m mexican and sometimes the references in media are either too heavy-handed or too little. But watching the clip this spoke to me in so many levels. Quite good, gonna watch it! Thanks for the beautiful piece.
Agreed. Hydra Cap was an abomination and I wish they’d retconned the whole thing the way they did the whole “government deliberately froze Steve because he objected to Hiroshima” nonsense.
Ugh. Frank Robbins’ art was traumatic for me at the time...still is.
Sam Wilson: Captain America was marked by Sam’s decision to take a decidedly liberal political stance in the public eye, a move that revealed just how easily and quickly it was possible for many people to question and invalidate Sam’s status as the Captain America.
I was wondering if you could actually take that at face value.
Finding a certain kind of sex you like to have is not “sex addiction”. It was shown that he was fairly unsatisfied with the kind of sex he had elsewhere. Why is finding what works for you - even if it is sort of unusual, and as long as it’s consensual and legal - suddenly a horrible “addiction”?
This episode sparked some of the most heated conversations I’ve had in a long time. Bravo Netflix for continuing to provide this show the creative liberty to do what they do.
How many otherwise sad and lonely gamers in this world would find themselves sucked into this virtual world, catatonic on their couches for who knows how long at a time, but finally finding the physical and emotional connections that exist out of reach in their real lives?
As a married man with kids, my wife is usually in bed by 10pm at the absolute latest most nights. So I have over two hours of unfettered Internet/online access to do whatever the hell I want. For nearly two months, my wife didn’t even know that I purchased and was playing The Division 2. He clearly made this a…
IMO this was the most interesting of the three episodes this season. There are definitely many ways you can read into this story, sexuality and gender.
Yeah I knew after the characters were introduced but not remotely developed in Apocalypse that this movie would have trouble getting where it needed to go. Too bad they couldn’t learn from Marvel about developing characters over multiple films. If this movie had focused on Magneto and his kids, it would have at least…
I might have agreed before Infinity War and Endgame. But if you can do those right then you can do X-Men right. I simply think no one who ever touched these movies really understood them.
I mean, if a friend looked at me the way that Aziraphale and Crowley look at each other, I would be like, “Why are you eye-fucking me, friend?”
Him being Targaryen had nothing to do with why Drogon didn’t kill him. Not only have we already seen Drogon snap at a Targaryen (Dany), but also in the show’s lore many Targaryens have been killed by dragons (the Targaryen Civil War, etc).
You make a lot of great points and while I’m inclined to agree with most of them, I think it would be extremely charitable to say all this was in the text of the show.
This is really great. And I’m so glad to read some critical writing that takes the show’s storytelling on its own terms and tries to assess what it’s saying rather than some of the lazier armchair quarterbacking we got this season.
It was a joke.
I think you mean
