Lana Condor is Vietnamese, not Japanese. MG de Faria is Venezuelan, not Mexican. I love them both, but this casting bothers me a bit.

it seems strange to me that they’d get rid of guns but leave the entire set of characters who are racist.

It’s the fact that she gets to spew the rhetoric with no narrative pushback from anyone that’s the problem. The show is highlighting that behavior as something that makes you popular AND gives you power over others. Read more

Remender sounds like every right-wing asshole who doesn’t understand that “PC” stands for “polite courtesy” rather than “political correctness.” Making all your Hispanic characters as gang-bangers and all your Asian characters as ninja or geisha fetishes because “that’s how you remember those people” makes you the Read more

I’ve definitely liked Remender’s work, but “Hey, I knew people who acted this way” is not a great excuse for presenting caricatures on TV. First, there’s a decent chance that we didn’t know those people in our past very well and were caricaturing them in our head beyond what they were actually like, and second, issues Read more

Rick Remender can be a fun writer, but he is absolutely not someone I trust to do nuanced takes on race.

Or at a minimum, go with the ol Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and make him take a different form every movie. It doesn’t have to be played as a mystery, necessarily, but I can’t imagine nearly as many people being turned away by *less* Depp.

This season with Jodie Whittaker and the team has been interestingly different. I feel it’s been more Twilight Zone than previous Doctor Who. More bizarre and strange than high SciFi adventure.

I loved the touch that all their clothing was mirrored on the Solitract side. It’s those little details that show they really are into what they’re doing over there.

I sincerely love Yaz’s double hair buns, which I feel are her reinterpretation of her fellow space adventurer Princess Leia’s iconic look

This is exactly the kind of Doctor Who I love - strange, thought-provoking, heartfelt, and a Doctor who absolutely sees through the whole bit. This is what I was thinking about when I asked for non-Chibnall written episodes. Read more

Ryan calling Graham “grandad” was a wonderful, well-earned moment for both of them. I also really liked Yaz blowing up at the other-Grace for taking advantage of Graham’s grief, being protective of him. And Graham’s triumphant moment of having a (gross-sounding) sandwich on hand to lure out the hungry, scared little Read more

You got great taste in podcasts! I referred to the original poster saying:
I would love to see a show where people really are resurrected from social media.” Which I don’t think exists, but it comes close to Life/After, in a way.
