  1. Knowhere was very red and when Thanos saw Kid Gamora inside the Soul Stone, everything was orange-y yellow.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    A fan of both Carol and Kamala asked Brie for this. And with that, I became a Brie Larson fan for life.
  3. Regarding the stinger on the end: Oh HELL yes!

    S02.E02: The Beguiling Man

    There is something so charming about the djinn and Salim going on their own roadtrip together.

    There were three, actually. Bellevue, NYU Langone, and Coney Island Hospital. Bellevue ended up having to be completely evacuated.

    Queer Eye

    I started sobbing when Mary got her teeth fixed. If I lived in Kansas City, I would 100% go to the amazingly kind dentist. Tan being so body-positive...I don't even have the words. I'm buying a bottle of their sauce.

    I mean, comparatively, compared to the blue Kree like Ronan. Yon-Rogg is usually pink, but Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes depicted him as blue. Strange universe.

    Mar-Vell was a pink Kree. So is Noh-Varr, who uses the name Marvel Boy.

    Queer Eye

    I think Joey was the perfect episode to encapsulate why I feel like I think the sum of these guys is greater than the OG guys. As much as I liked those guys, I can't imagine them taking the hero's lifestyle into account the same way the new guys do. Joey himself made that point. And wow, he cleaned up well.

    House Calls - The Cast in Other Roles

    So, Anthony Edwards is playing the judge in the forthcoming Law & Order: True Crime - The Menendez Brothers. I can't remember being in front of the camera for a long time, so good for him. What's interesting is that Eric and Lyle's father, Jose, is being played by Carlos Gomez, who played Raul.

    Renewed. I am kind of surprised that it got renewed, given the mess behind the scenes. I am utterly gobsmacked that it get renewed this early.

    It took me a while to warm up to Jody, but I did eventually. She looked gorgeous by the time that Jonathan and Tan were through with her.
  13. I think I'm the weirdo who liked vol 2 more. I can't put my finger on why, but the thing in these movies is they always get me on their side if they have particularly strong emotional beats. The stuff with Gamora and Nebula, Gamora telling Quill that she thought he already had found his family, and especially everything with Yondu did it for me. Regardless, if it means Bautista stops whining, I'm all for it.

    S02.E09: Project Daedalus

    It does raise the question of why one of the ship’s most senior officers is still bunking with Tilly. This episode was the first written by Michelle Paradise. They liked the work so much she was asked to co-write the two-part finale when she originally was not scheduled to. And she’s going to be in charge for S3.

    S02.E09: Project Daedalus

    Goodness, that was a sad one. I figured someone wasn't going to make it out, but I figured they'd find a way to save Airiam and have Nhan sacrifice herself. I'm probably going to have to watch that one again.

    S01.E16: King of Swords

    I enjoy a good natural disaster episode. I'm not sure if this was a good one or not. I did really enjoy the parts that didn't involve Bloom. Although Max clearly hasn't read Five Days at Memorial if New Amsterdam doesn't have a better disaster plan. I don't like the "will they/won't they" thing, but I hate the wife, so I'm...kinda okay with it? While I have never mounted an anemometer to the roof of my hospital, the way Iggy reacted to the storm is basically how I would have. I always come prepped to spend the night.

    But then, wouldn't everything?
  18. And The Merger becomes official on 3/20 at 12:02 AM. I imagine we'll hear about plans for the FF and X-men at 12:03AM.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    There's actually an even earlier story that they were drawing from. When she first got her powers, she went through a period where and Ms. Marvel were separate. Carol would black out and transform into Ms. Marvel, and had no idea why.

    Speaking of, the scene of Carol changing her uniform to the colors of Monica's Air Force T-shirt because "We're on the same team" warmed my cold, dead heart. And for that matter, her costume was fantastic. She usually has a sash in the comics, but I'm glad they lost it. Apparently Brie was worried they were going to use her old cheesecake Warbird costume instead. The best special effect may have been Goose horking up the Tesseract. My husband stated that they perfectly captured the mechanics of a kitty retching.

    S01.E15: Croaklahoma

    Yeah, I guess Langone would be a fair match. I don't know, the show has seemed to act like Manhattan is the whole of NYC, although I guess they did introduce Sheepshead Bay as some exotic, far-flung locale.

    DuckTales

    Boy, did that one end up packing an emotional wallop. That's one of the things that never ceases to amaze me. The show is filled with fanservice, but it never actually feels gratuitous.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    Assuming Hill is the same age as Cobie Smulders, she would have been 13 in 1995. And I haven't watched AoS in years,but I don't think May joined SHIELD until a bit later. I wouldn't have minded Fury getting a phone call from Director Carter, though. I guess for me, I would take the quality over quantity. Maria, Monica, and Mar-Vell were all so great. And they pulled off the tricky challenge of determinedly passing the Bechdel Test without drawing attention to the fact that they were attempting to do so.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    I'm honestly conflicted about where I would rank this in terms of the overall MCU movies, but I do think it's one of the better origin stories.
