Welcome back, Agent Carter! Below is my somewhat disjointed recap and reaction to the episodes (I'm feeling a little sick so my thoughts are jumbled).

Taken from somewhere:

Five Three characters from your fandoms you disliked at first, but then grew to like quite a bit.

I failed because I could only do three. I guess I tend to be pretty unwavering in my opinions.

Mild spoilers for Torchwood, Daredevil, and ElementaryCollapse )

Okay, major warning that I did not like this outing.

In watching a pilot for a new show, it suddenly dawned on me that Tim DeKay does not age. It's like he's always looked like a guy in his mid to late 30s since he was in his 20s and it hasn't changed now as a guy in his early 50s.

Okay, bye!

So, just for some background, I watched DD after JJ and that probably had a pretty big impact on how I felt about both shows.

Mild spoilers for bothCollapse )

I've really fallen behind in reviewing these episodes. The combination of my full time internship, dissertation, and applying for postdoc positions basically means it's a win if I even get to watch the episodes in a timely fashion.


I did want to just quickly comment that the latest episode ("The Games Underfoot"), featured one of the best Sherlock and Joan sequence ever. There needs to be some sort of follow up fic with the two of them playing video games. Or having to go to some arcade on a case and Sherlock just hating every second of it.

In a failed attempt to combine the styles of Guy Richie's Sherlock Holmes film series with BBC's Sherlock, the movie manages to dump all the elements that could have made this an engrossing story about how as humans we deal with the notion of death.

Non-spoilery reviewCollapse )

For anyone who celebrates a day of eating and family time, I hope it's a good one.

As a random media rec, if you have access to Netflix's series Jessica Jones, I highly recommend it. It's got so many amazing characters and stories we don't see played out too often.

Sherlock solves a B plot mystery in the latest Elementary episode thanks to some squirrel monkeys. REALLY NOW, SHOW?? It would have only been better if they had an actual squirrel monkey in the episode.
