With the new book out, I am re-reading Hobb's Farseer Cycle. I'd completely forgotten how sad-making this series is. Beautiful characterization though, GRRM could learn a lot.

Bucky fans are fairly pissed with the revelation that the next Cap movie is going to be Civil War themed.

That's not the part that bugs me (I think they should give Bucky a TV series, not a movie, anyway). What I am unsure of is whether the Civil War really works in a timeline where mutants are not a thing.

Frankly, we haven't seen that many superheroes introduced in the movieverse, and half of those were freaking aliens.

Also - every time I re-watch Winter Soldier and see the Steve/Natasha buddy-movie buried in there I am freshly disappointed in the casting choice for the Black Widow. I don't know, man - I just don't get the whole Johansson fanship.

(and apparently we are about to get Ryan Gosling as Dr Strange. Really? Fucking really?)

But I am also enjoying Gotham, so clearly my tastes are way out of the mainstream these days.

Speaking f my rapidly developing DC situation - I still couldn't give less of a shit about Batman vs Superman, who was cast as the Aquaman, or the Wonder Woman. But I am really looking forward to the Suicide Squad.

On some days, much more than others I am especially proud of myself for not posting enigmatically mysterious hints of thinly veiled passive aggression to one of my social media vehicles.

I am increasingly skeptical of Agent Carter.

1. After Agents of Shield, my confidence in the entire thing is ... shaken, is the word I am going to use.

but even more

2. The entire set up is perfectly positioned to have 'the message' overwhelm the story.

I am primarily looking for good TV, not a heavy-handed after-school special on the rise of the post-war feminism. If they can combine the two, fine. But, in my experience, when the showrunners embark on the project with the main goal of edutaining the audience, they tend to end up with the worst of both worlds.

So I'm wrapping myself in wariness. Been hurt too many times. Gonna take it slow.

Continuing with the Arrow marathon, and knowing how things turn out - oh my god. Laurel is easily twice as annoying as during the first run-through. So is the Huntress chick, actually.

Man, they are killing off all the wrong people on this show. The cast could easily stand to lose Roy, among other things.

.... it suddenly strikes me that I may have began taking too many pointers from GRR Martin's school of cast management.

I am marathoning Arrow and man, it's just stupid how much better it is compared to the Agents of Shield.

Sad.

For that matter while Gotham has not lived up to my (admittedly sky-high) expectations it's also solidly good.

AoS can't seem to stop teetering on the brink between campy-tolerable and utterly atrocious.

Currently I am composed primarily of Nyquil and hate.

Which is also going to be the name of my band, I've decided.

Having carefully assessed the Monday TV schedule, I have come to the obvious conclusion that I am never again getting anything done on this night of the week.
