Yes, everyone had a translator. Except for the girl.

And that is right, the middle really drags. I remember pausing before watching half of the movie and noticing there was still over an hour left. But I can't remember that much happening in all this time, since it was the part where

  Reveal hidden contents

they found out they were negotiating with the father and after that there was basically the sequence of going to the meeting place and dealing with the bomb.

finished expanse s05

great quality as always

some part feels as slow as last season

8 episode instead of 10 might be better

the show successfully make the crew of rocinante feels resourceful and tenacious

much more than last season

Anyone watching WandaVision? What do you think is the explanation for the big reveal at the end of the most recent episode?

Is it Quicksilver from another universe? Just an easter egg? Or something else?

 

They're leaning heavy into multiverse to set up some movies and shows.

I have no idea what you're talking about.

Spoiler

That obviously isn't Quicksilver, it is Pietro Maximoff.

They even made sure to point out that Wanda isn't Scarlet Witch. Just Wanda! No fancy name or callsign, or anything!

;)

Yes, I'm aware that this is a licencing issue preventing X-Men from showing up in the MCU.

There isn't a licensing issue since Disney bought Fox.  All the Marvel rights excepting Spider-Man & related characters are with Marvel now (unless you're claiming a Hulk/Namor like licensing deal that's apparently prevented solo movies not based on character rights but secondary rights licensing...?

Well... right. That problem should have gone away when Disney acquired Fox.

Then there no longer is a licencing issue at all, and they just kept calling her Wanda for the fun of it. I mean, the show even made joke out of her not having a nickname (and that was due to Marvel not being allowed to call the two by their X-Men names when they showed up in Age of Ultron, unless various articles lied to me :)).

I think they are waiting for her to

show magic like powers before giving her the name Scarlet Witch.

My reaction to that was, "Oh, neat, they can use their experience from working on the Dark Crystal to really do it justice...wait, the Dark Crystal was cancelled because it was too expensive to produce...oh no, it's going to be absolute garbage-tier CGI a la their Watership Down remake series, isn't it? Into the trash it goes."

(e): I guess they could also do some 2D animation as well, which could be fine. Guess we'll have to wait and see to find out.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Man, and it's weirdly depressing to see a run of news of Whedon being toxic to some of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast back then.

But dont you think what she said is unacceptable especially  for anyone who is aware of the nature of what genocide means ?

Their is no genocide of Republicans, Trump lost the election. Its time to move on and accept it and stop with the hyperbolic comments and misinformation

Its really not that bad, dont think extreme comments from some and the example of the Capitol violence  represent how most Americans think or act

It's just a pattern that everyone should be able to recognize. Don't want to go into detail on this, because this isn't the politics thread, so I just stop now.

 

Other than that I kept watching Big Mouth. Turns out season 2 was a lot better than the first one. Also much less gross. Binge watched season 3 and 4 right after and it was good too. They deal with lots of valid teenager issues and they do it in pretty good ways, imo.

Not really news, I haven't seen anything that wasn't general knowledge at the time or soon after. I know a lot of people regarded him as a bit of a girl power male feminist, but to be honest he had some pretty... odd stuff going on even without retrospect- Angel stalking Buffy when she was 13, the Spike S6 thing, a lot of Xander's stuff, Wesley's slave girl in the closet not to mention that the whole premise of Dollhouse was extraordinarily creepy. Lots of fetishisation going on there. That Buffy in particular was a toxic set was a pretty open secret even before Emma Caulfield asked for Anya to be killed off.

For the most recent stuff, while I don't doubt that Whedon was an utter knob to Charisma Carpenter the decision to fire her was ultimately because WB mandated that James Marsters be brought in for Angel S5 along with another budget cut, and Cordelia was the only character that could be written out to make way for him.
