ellahitzgerald replied to your post “Agents of Shield is not good for my blood pressure”
i asked a bunch of people if i should watch it a few days ago!!!!!! the general consensus was that it started okay and got better??
Yeah, I saw it and I was about to reply too, but I left it for do it later (and you know, “Later” in Tumblr is maybe “never”).
I love almost everything Joss Whedon does (but Dollhouse, I couldn’t stand Dollhouse), so I’m not very impartial with the show. I liked the first episodes too. Not the best show ever, but was enjoyable. But after the 16/17 episode there is a big lap and becomes a big OMG OMG OMG. It’s like going from season 1 to season 3 (usually the best season in every show) in just a couple of episodes. The events from Captain America 2 helped a lot. And also, a very big Spoiler (that I’m not going to tell), that adds new layers to the previous episodes, the kind of event that make you re-watch a show with new eyes.
But I’m afraid to show you too much enthusiasm and create too high expectations that make you won’t like it at the end. I’m in an hype mood with this show lately, so don’t pay me too much attention.
Also, I shouldn’t watch it before going to sleep, because it doesn’t any good for my fucked up sleeping schedule.

Penelope is pretending she doesn’t see the look coming from one of the stylists on her shoot - it’s not obvious, he’s being pretty subtle about it, but Penelope has been on the wrong end of judgmental stares more than a few times in her life and she knows she’s reading this guy pretty accurately: every inch of him is screaming you do not belong here.
She doesn’t write High Snooty-Ass Literature, she’s not exactly the standard sort of beautiful that these stylists are used to and as far as these jerks are concerned, she’s pretty much Not Fit for the cover of their magazine - a magazine, she’d like to add, she’d never be caught dead reading in her life - but her publicist insisted, so here she is.
"We’re thinking a close cropped shot, face and hair," one of the stylists is saying as they shepherd her along to the set of the shoot, calling the attention of several people holding camera gear and it takes everything in Penelope not to verbally eviscerate someone, anyone - if the stylists think that her body isn’t worthy enough for the front cover of their pretentious ass magazine, then Penelope might just tear them all a new one.
There’s a beat of silence and then a beautiful, beautiful man - a godlike creature of gorgeousness, to be perfectly honest - holding a camera steps forward and gives Penelope an appraising look - and she’s about to bite his head off - before he turns to the stylist, eyebrows raised, and says, “I mean, her face is beautiful, but she’s killing it in that dress so I’m thinking I’m gonna ignore what you’re thinking and do what I want - which is take lots of beautiful pictures of this very gorgeous woman.”
Then the man beams a bright white smile, showing off his ludicrous dimples, before offering his hand. “Hey baby girl,” his lips curl around the nickname in an almost purr, prompting a responding grin from Penelope, “I’m Derek, it is very nice to meet you.”
Holy frell. Speaking on a panel at WonderCon yesterday, Farscape creator and Revolution showrunner Rockne S. O’Bannon confirmed that the script for a new Farscape feature is currently underway, with Brian Henson on board as well.

They’re mixing two different universes together and yet it still makes waaay more sense than the finale.
….you know what, it really does.
All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
Take that, Bembridge Scholars!
The Mummy is a film about a woman having a marvellous time, and I think that’s so beautiful.
Yes, let’s just ignore that whole part in the middle where she was being hunted by a mummy who tried to use her body as a vessel for his dead lover.
I’ve seen a handful of comments like this and I just wanted to address it because I think it’s worth talking about. I realise my summation of the film is flippant; it was an attempt at irony because obviously the movie is full of gruesome death and dismemberment, and I fully agree that Evie is terrorized. But that’s not what the film is about. It’s not about Evie the human sacrifice - that’s something that happens to her but it isn’t who she is.
The point is, the whole plot of The Mummy literally could not happen without Evie pursuing the thing that she loves.
They go out to Hamunaptra because Evie is passionate about knowledge and discovery, and when they get there she is in her element - she is loving every minute of it and she is proud of herself and she is absolutely going to kiss Mr O’Connell. But once that thirst for knowledge and discovery inadvertantly raises Imhotep, and there is literally fire and brimstone raining from the sky, and everyone else is running and hiding, she never ever once despairs. She accepts responsibility, she owns her mistake and she refuses to believe there is nothing to be done. She follows her passions again and decides that more knowledge and more discovery is what’s required. And she’s right. She finds the answer and she takes triumphant pleasure in proving to herself that she is a greater scholar than the ones at Bembridge, the ones who have repeatedly found her lacking.
Do you realise how rare it is for a female character’s intellectual pursuit to be the thing that kicks off the action and the thing that saves the day, AND a source of ultimate joy in her life?
When Imhotep comes for her she goes without a fight, to save her companions’ lives, because she knows that’s the best chance they have. When Rick and Jonathan and Ardeth come to save her she is pivotal in her own rescue. She is never a Damsel, she is always part of the team.
And then Evie SAVES THE WORLD. She saves the world by doing the thing that she loves and is good at. She saves the world, she gets the guy, and they ride off into the sunset with some treasure. And really, that’s a pretty good end to a day.
