This show is so good! It’s insane to me that AVclub dropped it and is covering the much-inferior Umbrella Academy episode-by-episode.

That was the last one for the season?  Holy shit.  I thought for sure that it was 10 episodes long.  That was a great lead up to a climactic episode but one hell of a let-down for a finale.

Same. In Season One, even before Jane Patrol, the way the introduced the dad by voice was heavily implying the type of abuse she suffered from him. Jane Patrol, itself, left little to no doubt.

I don’t think we as a culture are honestly prepared for a real deep dive into how common child sexual abuse is. We see it’s aftermath or those who live for it when they finally fall, but most people I don’t think are ready for such a introspective. After all, children are one of the last ‘pure’ beings, save for dogs Read more

While most African Americans would probably say institutional racism and police brutality are key issues, you don’t have the same solidarity with Latinos. Central Americans might be more concerned about refugees, while Mexican Americans more Read more

The worst thing is that I know what he means, but he says everything in the worst way possible that makes him sound so bad. He needs to make his VP choice and shut the fuck up.

I found the revelation of Kay’s sexual abuse to be unsurprising, and I had already assumed it was part of her psychopathology. As someone who is a sexual abuse survivor, it also felt like representation. It is a very real horror, that is very difficult to overcome, and it is more widespread than people want to realize.

Damn, you’re right. He was waxed pretty much without any fanfare. Quickly enough that I completely forgot it had happened. My bad.

As a kid, I never understood why Rita was on the team in the original run. I think how this show has handled her is indicative of their solid embracing of the strengths of the source material (not usually a virtue) while extending and enhancing it. The Red Shoes episode was another fantastic example - the original Ruby Read more

Funny, I thought we saw Larry waxed up, but not Jane. Didn’t he abruptly get waxed after discovering Kipling?

This show is so bizarre and different, as much as I love it I don’t think it has enough wide appeal to carry on for long.   Read more

I admit, I giggled like someone told a naughty joke when I heard a bit of THAT theme song for Superman’s big comeback in JUSTICE LEAGUE. Same for when it use part of Danny Elfman’s theme for Batman. Hearing those again gave me a rush of endorphins, like “Awwwwwww, yeeeeaaaaahhhh, that’s the good stuff.”

Oh that is very cool, thank you! I’d never seen it.

I love the Williams theme because I grew up with it and it’s great, but I definitely like the Zimmer theme quite a lot too.

They’re going to have a bigger budget problem with so many students taking time off.

So, your logic is that alcohol taxes should not find drug rehab? Gas tax should not fund road repairs? Money from lawsuits should not fund restitution? Read more
