    I’m at the first battle in NY, where Strange has the Time Stone and everything is green. Strange’s house-green, the roof was green on the house, the inside was lots of emeralds. Lingering shots on trees-super green. Banner, who ironically can’t turn green gets dropped into a green park where Tony shortly follows. I’m going to keep watching, I’m sure we’ll see more blues, reds, greens and yellows as Thanos gets more stones.

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

    Brie Larson has said she wants them to bring Kamala Khan into the franchise. I think they will in this next phase with Carol and T'Challa. 

    A fan of both Carol and Kamala asked Brie for this.

    And with that, I became a Brie Larson fan for life.

    During Hurricane Sandy, at least one major NYC hospital very close to the real life Bellevue lost power entirely. Their backup generators were stored in the basement, which then became flooded.

    There were three, actually.  Bellevue, NYU Langone, and Coney Island Hospital. 

    Bellevue ended up having to be completely evacuated.

    The Jones BBQ episode made me tear up so much my dang contact fell out. All the guys were on their A game with this one. 😊

    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.

    When I think pink I think of Blink from X-Men comics. Looked up Mar-Vel and, he looks like Captain Britain (Tom Hopper would be perfect casting) LOL.

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    Also: It should give you pause if your half-Vulcan foster brother is throwing shade at your lack of interior design. Her smug answer to his observation had me eye-rolling pretty bad.

    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.

  9. 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.

    Carol losing her memories seems to be an nod to the comics where she lost her memories (and her powers) after her encounter with Rogue.

    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.

    I do appreciate there was not one bit of pink in the whole movie. Without going on a rant, pink being the girl color is not instinctive, it's because girls are conditioned by society to think that way, starting literally from birth when the hospital puts them in pink blankets and hats.

    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.

    I think "University" was NYU - I can't remember the context, but they implied it was a private hospital associated with their public one, which would match for NYU/Bellevue.

    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.

  13. 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.

    Tell me why Melinda May or Maria Hill couldnt have been some of the Shield Agents running around?

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. Haven't done one of these for a long time.

    Our major introduction was to Mama-ji, the Hindu goddess Kali.  The Hindu pantheon is a bit more complicated than the majority of the European ones, so various schools interpret her in slightly different ways.  She is generally viewed as a destroyer, but despite that, she is often interpreted as the mother of the universe, and therefore more of a protector.
