Oh, man. I hope the bomb-disposal deputy is a salamander! Or, a genie...

I'm gonna go out on a limb...

... and guess that this might put a number of theories at to Skye's parentage to rest, finally. Get ready for the Inhumans movie, y'all.

Terrigen Mist, here we go...

And, I suppose it's a fairly neat way to sidestep the copyright issues that keep mutants out of the Avengersverse.

I have finally watched the Giver trailer and I am puzzled as to how this is not a less-cool (I don't see no Batmans slicing people's faces off with a katana or dancing with guns) version of Equilibrium.

Still.

Looks kind of good.

1. Still hate the new LJ interface like cancer.

2. Among other things, I quite enjoyed the last episode because TW is one of the few urban fantasy/sci-fi shows to acknowledge the leveling power of the firearms. I thought it especially nice (planned or not) that it was delivered by a woman too.

Every argument she lines up to explain to Derek that challenging the supernatural to the fisticuffs while human is a quick way to die slow, applies just as much to any female action hero not gifted by the script-writers with the mcguffin of magical strength or genetic engineering.

Team Human didn't climb to the top of the food chain by fighting a tiger with teeth and nails, ya dick.

Nothing evens up the playing field faster than a shotgun....

I was vaguely aware of the disparity but in the wake of the Williams's death an article linked to the nationals stats. Consistently, about 80% of the US suicides are men.

I never realized it was *that* pronounced.

I finally approve of a Derek pairing. My world is askew.

Also, I am continually heartened by the fact that the parents in this show are light-years cooler than the teenagers. As it should be.

“The Jews will lose because they crave life but a true Muslim loves death,” a former Hamas leader, Abdel-Aziz Rantisi, told me in an interview in 2002. In the same interview he made the following imperishable statement: “People always talk about what the Germans did to the Jews, but the true question is, ‘What did the Jews do to the Germans?’”

Robin Williams' appearance on Inside the Actors' Studio. Like pretty much every interview with him it turns into an hour of improv stand-up. Good stand-up.

1. I may need to re-evaluate my decision to watch this series after midnight
2. I was doing all right until they took a retrospective jaunt through the death camps. I can handle the phantasmagorical Lovecraftian horror. Can't really deal with the Shoah stuff no more. Don't know why.
3. I hope the square-jawed protagonist doctor will get infected and decapitated soon. I am mostly in this for the cane-swordsman and the exterminator.
