I remember a few years back when David Anthony Durham, an African-American author, was starting an epic fantasy series. One of the reviewers expressed fear that this was going to be a "black fantasy" series and was surprised that it wasn't. And she thought that was a compliment. » 4/19/14 2:22pm Saturday 2:22pm

They altered the premise of the books immediately by giving Hannibal and Will a longer and more complex relationship than the one in the books, so it seems a bit unfair to criticize them for it now. They seem to me to be setting up a "hunt for Hannibal" storyline for Season 3, which is also another major departure from… » 4/12/14 12:02pm 4/12/14 12:02pm

My guess is that Coulson and his team will actually form the new SHIELD proper while Fury and Cap are off doing their own thing. It makes sense because it gives the show more ownership of its own corner of the MCU while still allowing for tie-ins to the movies. I think Coulson and whoever they can put together will… » 4/09/14 12:57pm 4/09/14 12:57pm

Definitely my favorite episode of the series so far, and the first time that I felt AoS did something that no other show could do and did it effectively. I'm hoping there is more to what is going on with Ward, but even if there is not I'm cool with it, hopefully Trip will stay on with Coulson. Anyone else think the… » 4/09/14 1:59am 4/09/14 1:59am

Fantastic episode, enjoyed the mix of characters and the fast pace of the episode. May secretly working for Fury makes sense, plus I love the fact that everyone is kind of on uncertain ground. Also interested in the faux Clairvoyant's mention of something huge coming for Coulson and Skye. I don't think Hand is bad, I… » 4/02/14 12:53am 4/02/14 12:53am

I'm not a huge fan of the lemons, but I really enjoyed this one, especially the second part. I forget sometimes that Adventure Time can be an incredibly beautiful show and I really loved the look of the cloud trawler and everything about that sequence. Also the propaganda film was all kinds of awesome. Also, the last… » 3/11/14 2:43am 3/11/14 2:43am

How so? He was a forgotten, abused child who essentially made himself. There wasn't much there because he almost literally did not exist. Not as a human being anyway. His monstrous nature was hidden by the power of the Tuttles, he was abused, and he barely existed according to the records of the state. He was at the… » 3/10/14 4:45pm 3/10/14 4:45pm

No it didn't. Rust was never the guy he pretended to be. The Rust at the end was the real Rust. All the shit he talked was the only way to deal with the loss of his family, something he thought he could never have again. Just go back to when they were in the Revival Tent and he was talking about the preacher. He was… » 3/10/14 1:09am 3/10/14 1:09am
