  1. Speaking of tainted favorites:
  3. We didn’t have time to go over all of our honorable mentions for hero teams since Donovan had to dash. Here are mine: -The command crew of Deep Space Nine (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) -Scoops Troop (Stranger Things) -The Aang Gang (Avatar: The Last Airbender) -Sandford PD (Hot Fuzz) -Dumbledore’s Army (Harry Potter) -The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings) I enjoy the Avengers movies and the Teen Titans cartoon but didn’t include them since I’m not as familiar with their comic book lore as I am with the X-Men or the Justice League’s.
  4. The Elongated Man has been fired.
  5. Spartacus. They recast the role because the actor who played the titular character died and the new guy (who went on to play the Weather Wizard in the Flash show) held the role for two more seasons.
  6. Oh yeah. The pilot and second episode are fourth and fifth for some reason. Aaron actually gave me a list of them in the proper order earlier today:
  7. Hello, my name is Christian, and I’m addicted to DuckTales (the new version).
  8. The Witches and Ever After. The latter is the best version of Cinderella period and features her as the stepmother, as well as Richard fucking O’Brien.
  10. I recently got hooked on You’re Dead To Me and Evil Genius, both history podcasts from the BBC hosted by comedians (Greg Jenner and Russell Kane, respectively). Evil Genius is generally the funnier of the two but You’re Dead To Me is more informative and the better program if you’re actually interested in history (paging a certain Mr. I. Wilson).
  11. Hot Fuzz (let me know if you want or need a plus one) Beautician and the Beast The Lion in Winter (if his screentime warrants it)
  12. Being John Malkovich because she’s unrecognizable in it.
  13. Ant-Man. Both have their problems (including problematic sidekicks) but Ant-Man’s more consistent throughout while Deadpool starts very strong but begins to peter out in the middle (at least from memory).
  15. To Kill A Mockingbird. I tend to enjoy Marvel movies more than you do but I’ve been too wild about the first Guardians film. The villain is one of dullest, most-afterthought antagonists in the franchise (which is saying something) and at times I think it only gets by its 80s nostalgia. But To Kill A Mockingbird is timeless.
  16. My publishing guru (for lack of a better word) convinced me to a write a short conclusion/epilogue to my book. After a bitter month's struggle, that conclusion is now in a presentable form and after four years, the book is finally being submitted to publishers. I'm sure it'll be a while before it's on shelves and there'll be a lot of to-ing and fro-ing with the publishers before then. In the meantime, I'm glad to finally be at this point and am already working on the next one.
  17. Rocky, First Blood, and The Expendables

  21. He died today at the age of 79. I’m more familiar with him as a voice actor than his live action work but he played my favorite character on DS9 (albeit from a pretty crowded field).
