Hey, just thought I’d bring *SU Observations* back for a little go-round while there’s still content that’s not entirely advertising or celebrity gossip on this site. Like the gem part of Steven, when I ask Kinja what happened to AV Club it looks upon me with a blank expression and screams “SHE’S GOOOONE”
How can I tell the difference between Snow Patrol and Coldplay, they’re both white, anodyne, and cold.
One of the first posts each week was by a Riddler account who’d post a riddle based on the week’s episode. Man I miss that shit.
I spent much of the episode expecting Nia to find out Kara is Supergirl before even Lena.
“But you somehow can’t suspend your disbelief for James not figuring out who Liberty is BEHIND A MASK?”
Hartley Sawyer posted a picture of the two of them back to back on Twitter, and man it is something.
I was fully expecting Maggie to continue snogging Parker WHILE continuing to suck up to Lucy because I’m so used to that from TV characters by this point. Being horribly selfish in relationships is just....what people on TV DO.
“That and the brief sign that this version of Charmed might actually include non-European witchcraft gives me hope.”
Glad you noticed the shadow puppets too. I like the little background things like that.
It was Grime
I’ll just add my name to the pile of people who were absolutely terrified about Doctor Who doing an episode about the US Civil Rights movment, but they didn’t butcher it.

I have no idea how people can type/say something like this like it makes a shred of sense.
“But was TLJ a deliberate slap in the face of fans? Abso-fucking-lutely. Let’s not pretend this wasn’t a gauntlet.”
“But was TLJ a deliberate slap in the face of fans?”
I think the loss of interesting characters is a byproduct of both shows being from novels. Prax and Avarsavala are both missed, and I even miss Dimitri, Miller’s partner from season 1.
For people not into sci-fi, my “twitter pitch” is “Game of Thrones in space,” which is not surprising, as the novels’ authors edited and collaborated with George R.R. Martin frequently. It is vast, epic, and yet, deeply personal. The acting, as redmouse points out, improves over time, but can be a little cringy from…
Naomi regains consciousness and flees her skiff when the electrical systems short out (creating a very cool, and deadly, glowing bubble effect),
It was definitely Mr. Frumpus. That whole plotline feels straight out of Wet Hot American Summer.
