For me, The Peacekeeper Wars are included with the fourth season at the end of the episode list after “Bad Timing”. I’m in Japan now but it was like that for me when I was in the US (and when I use a US address in my VPN now).

I’m not sure what’s going on with Observation Deck. I think it might be partly due to the fact that I post so often so my posts tend to show up more. Kinja also seems to have a new policy with posted images where you have to attribute a source. I can imagine some people find it cumbersome.

Thanks, I’m glad you’ve liked them. It’s been a good revisit for me too.

Nope, not being sarcastic. I really do like the thought of Snow White running off with Grumpy but I understand that would be a completely different kind of story.

I got a job here teaching English. I actually didn’t have any difficulties at all—I arrived in March, before a state of emergency was called in Japan. I think I must have been one of the last people to have an easy time getting in.

I love Moonfleet though that’s more smuggling than pirating and mostly on shore. Aside from Treasure Island, I also have a big soft spot for Anne of the Indies. I also think Roman Polanski’s Pirates is underrated.

I didn’t realise she was still only sixteen. The way she’s animated and written, she seems much older, but I guess that’s generally true for teenagers in fiction. Real teenagers complain and are frequently obnoxious, and usually when they’re portrayed that way, everyone complains they’re unrealistic. If the idea was Read more

I do know Jeff Anderson and Kevin Smith have reconciled and last I heard Clerks 3 is moving forward, though I think the reconciliation happened after filming on Reboot wrapped.

Normally I like Jodie Whittaker but she did seem a bit checked out for this episode.

That’s pretty much exactly how I felt about John Simm. Dhawan is a bit like that but I felt he kept a bit of Missy’s damaged quality.
