there are some characters that i love more than most characters … and yet i almost never post about them. mostly because they’re not on my dash that often. or i don’t like the graphics/gifs i see. but it feels weird, almost like i have a secret fandom love affair.
Two of them friends!!
"The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby" screening
Guardians of the Galaxy tops the box office for the fourth weekend, which is more than any Marvel film to date, grossing nearly $600 million. Hitting the peak again is a testament to the continued strength of the comic company while DC fans can only dream that Dawn of Justice provides a reliable response.
I Am Groot, by Namecchan.
I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.
We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.
But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.
And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.
Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.
Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.
But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.
Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?
I need help, and fast. I need someone off the books. Someone angry.

Also, since you listed Castle: For less well-known crime shows with a bit of humour in them, try Death in Paradise (3 seasons, 4th announced, very British DI is transferred to tropical island and must adapt to his new, frustratingly laid-back team and surroundings while solving murders) and Taxi Brooklyn (in its 1st season, one of those ‘cop and not!cop team up to solve crimes’ shows, here the not!cop is a taxi driver (and not even American)).
ooh YES thank you for reminding me of ‘call the midwife’! because i saw that one really awesome vid about it & i meant to check it out back then. but forgot all about it until now. it looks really quite amazing. and i’ve been meaning to check out ‘bomb girls’ too!
& i actually watched the pilot of ‘death in paradise’ once but never got farther than that … may have to try again at some point, because i do like my crime shows. but i’ve never even heard of this other show - sounds interesting! i always like it when a not!cop teams up with a cop, so i will DEFINITELY check that one out.
I’m hooked on

i like this list! i’d recommend the killing (tho s1&2 are a bit of a mess but s3 is amazing! & 4 is pretty solid) i hear the orginal version is far superior so if u rly hate amc’s version there’s another option? also u should catch up on tmp! :)
:) i will definitely catch up on the mindy project soon! it’s such a happy making show.
& oh good idea! one of my best friends watched the original version of the killing and she loves it so much. i always thought it would be too depressing for my taste but maybe i should branch out a bit. because i usually watch similar things and lately i tend to get bored by those things.

ooh, i didn’t realize it would be back so soon. yay!
& i definitely have to catch up on haven soon, because i’ve seen some posts here on tumblr and it looks awesome. but somehow i just haven’t been in the right mood so far … and yeah, i’m feeling meh about doctor who & i haven’t even started this new series yet. i didn’t even finish the last series. because of a lot of reasons really, but also because i didn’t warm up to clara at all :( it makes me a little sad.

The Good Wife. Some seriously great women characters on that show. It’s really very entertaining (i.e. super easy to binge watch).
hm, i have heard a lot of good things about this show. but i’m not sure if it’s the thing for me - i’m more into sci fi/ fantasy things than political shows (although i’m not even sure if it’s really about politics, so maybe i should at least watch some promos and things ;) )
