  1. S01.E10: Six or Seven Minutes

    I can't speak for any other doctor or nurse, but for me, it's amusing to see things gotten hysterically wrong and then kvetch about it.
  2. American Gods in the Media

    Love it.
  3. Babylon 5

    I know and I have, but I feel that a piece of media should be able to stand on its own.
  4. I don't have that kind of mojo, but I'll let @radishcake know.
  5. S01.E11: A Seat at the Table

    I can't generalize to all public hospitals, but that has not been my experience at all.
  6. S02.E01: Brother

    I wish they hadn't spoiled the "THIS IS THE POWER OF MATH, PEOPLE!" followed by their high-five in the trailers. Even knowing it was coming, it was still everything. Seriously, watching Tilly geek out with both Paul and with Michael was delightful.
  7. S02.E01: Brother

    He has. My husband did point out there there was kind of a “Call me Chris. “Captain Pike” was my father” vibe.
  8. S02.E01: Brother

    I assume it's the same woman who played her last year. I'm an easy mark, but I THOROUGHLY enjoyed that. They clearly decided to frame it as a second pilot, and I think it was successful. They made a very clean break with the Lorca era, and told a good story in the mean time. I really hope we get to see Nhan and Reno again. They were both great, particularly the latter.
  9. S01.E01: Pilot

    I enjoyed that. It's not Golden Age of Television, but it was enjoyable. I'll be back. I didn't really see chemistry between Max and Liz, and really didn't see it between Izzy and her husband (?), but I think Michael and Alex mitigate it somewhat. I did like the actors, so maybe the chemistry will grow on me.
  10. Apparently, in the Far From Home trailer, you can see that the former Avengers Tower is undergoing some renovations since Tony sold it. Anyone want to put odds on a Mr. Baxter being the new owner?
  11. Babylon 5

    "Sleeping in Light" is fine for what it is, just a coda on the journeys that all of the characters have gone on. I think it could have used a bit more time to set up where all the characters had been since the end of the series--we only really know about Garibaldi and Vir. It also hurts for the lack of Londo and G'Kar, although that's unavoidable. Although Vir's speech about Londo thinking that the Pak'ma'rah sing with God's voice almost makes up for it. "Deconstruction" is...it sets up nothing and resolves nothing. It just feels self-congratulatory in a really unearned way.
  12. Babylon 5

    I like the idea of experimenting. "And Now For a Word" was an interesting idea, even if didn't entirely come together in the end. "Illusion of Truth" was quite good, and I've already said I like "Day of the Dead." I suppose "View from the Gallery" could have worked, but I found Mac and Bo incredibly annoying, although I'm not sure if it was the writing, the actors, or both. "Deconstruction of Falling Stars" is the most ridiculous, boring, navel-gazing bullshit imaginable. And the S5 Psy Corps and Rangers episodes are also aggressively mediocre. Rewatching the series, I'm struck by how many of the one-off episodes aren't that great. I am thoroughly entertained by the majority of the big arc episodes, but I've come across episodes I haven't seen before which are...not great. And also ones that are, in fairness. ETA: I had no idea that a few years ago Straczynki revealed the real reason for Michael O'Hare's departure. Apparently, he was undergoing some kind of psychosis. They were willing to hold production for him to get treatment, but the reality was Warner Bros would have ended up canceling the show. Straczynski told O'Hare he'd take the truth to his grave, but O'Hare said it was okay to talk about it after HE died, because he figured the story might help people.
  13. I think the reason the DCEU has stumbled relative to the MCU has as much to do with the source material as it does with the people making it. This is not me saying that DC Comics is bad--far from it. But the Marvel universe is a whole greater than the sum of its parts in a way that DC isn't. There's a wonderful graphic novel from the early 90s called Marvels that tells the story of the MU from the 40s-70s, and it's just something you couldn't do with DC. Truthfully, I'd love them to figure out a way to adapt Marvels to the screen, but I think it wouldn't make a lot of sense to people who only know the MCU.
  14. I'm not sure I'm emotionally prepared for the dedication at the front of Captain Marvel.
  15. S04.E10: All The Lonely People

    Of the big hospitals I worked in during medical school, in the smaller of the two, the psychiatrists had a call room off the main ER. In the larger, as well as the one I work at now, we have a locked unit within the ER with, you know, offices and stuff. Charles being around the ER a lot doesn't surprise me. What does is that he never seems to be anywhere else. If he's a Consult & Liaison psychiatrist, he should be seeing patients in other units.
