    Audiobook recommendations and issues

    Audiobooks are the only thing that keep me sane for my commute so I will slog through bad narrators if I enjoy the book enough. I even survived the Fitz and the Fool trilogy voiced by Elliot Hill. If you give it long enough, I find it it stops being jarring unless you think about it. YMMV. The full cast production of the Graveyard by Neil Gaiman was great but the only time in recent memory that I've encountered multiple narrators, so I imagine it'd be hard to restrict yourself to those only.

    The Boys (Amazon)

    thanks - may give it a try some day but it's not high on my list

    The Boys (Amazon)

    do any episodes pass the bechdel test? serious question. the title and trailer don't make me feel confident that it treats its non-male characters well or gives them much to do.

    Book of the Ancestor trilogy by Mark Lawrence {spoiler thread}

    I just finished the book and was coming in here just to say that The Ara/Nona subtext was strong throughout the whole series, IMO. I'm a bit disappointed that it remained subtext given that the series has been touted on some lists as having strong LGBT rep in the main characters, but at least there was Apple / Kettle and the two novices in Nona's class. I have to say, I don't really want the story to end. There's so much still to explore in the world and learn about the moon / the missing / the ancestor etc, so I'm looking forward to other books set in this world and hope we get to revisit some of these characters some day.

    US Politics: 40 Acres and Barack Obama

    Klobuchar and Castro really stood out for me as candidates I wasn't really paying attention to before. I will be now. Liked them, Warren, and Booker overall.

    Killing Eve (BBC America/BBC One)

    It definitely wasn't a blank. You can see in the shot of Eve lying on the ground that she's definitely bleeding. Villanelle shot her right where Eve stabbed her in 1x08. Interesting to see where they go in season 3 (and I wonder if it will be another 30 second jump?) Eve has burned all her bridges and doesn't really have anyone left. Villanelle I assume will go after her family and maybe we'll see a little more of her past. I think Villanelle will get a little more humanity and Eve will get a little darker.

    Killing Eve (BBC America/BBC One)

    I think it's interesting that Villanelle isn't repeating her cycle with Anna. With Anna, she killed the husband. With Eve, she restrained herself and didn't. Wonder where the cycle goes now I'm betting Eve kills someone in the finale and that closes the gap between Eve and Villanelle. I hope they ride off into the sunset together as murder girlfriends
  8. ????? Is this a troll because I don't know if you heard, but bisexual people are real.
  9. Good: Black Sails and Spartacus are at the top for me. Parks and Rec and Veep for comedies. Avatar the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra for cartoons. Also think Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended really well, which can't be said for a lot of dramas that run for more than 5 seasons. If you count the wrap-up miniseries, Farscape. Bad Battlestar Galactica was a major betrayal Also, as much as I loved Alias and appreciate the final scene and the note it ended on, I have a lot of beef with some of the character choices and deaths in the final few episodes. Most other shows famous for bad endings I never watched (including GoT) or stopped watching before the final season

    Killing Eve (BBC America/BBC One)

    Genuinely can't believe the show went there... As a lesbian this show is completely up my alley but I do wonder what others think about this facet of it. I saw one tweet recently indicating that the person didn't think there was any attraction between Eve and Villanelle and I just can't wrap my head around that. Anyways, wondering where we go from here... Who do you think is going to try to buy Aaron's super spy weapon? What was Kenny trying to warn Eve about? What are Konstantin and Carolyn really up to? And who or what are the Twelve anyway?

    Killing Eve (BBC America/BBC One)

    I liked the parallel between I don't think this season has been as tight as s1 when it comes to plot, but the character building is just so on point. At this point the story is just there to bring out specific character moments IMO, and I'm enjoying them all

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS II

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the scene itself, but I saw quite a few critiques of how the press and Russo bros played up the representation in advance, only for it to be a very minor scene with an unknown and unnamed character. After 22 films and dozens of superheroes, that's a let down and highly disingenuous. Now, that's all beside the point because Carol Danvers was obviously in a relationship with Maria in Captain Marvel, so we already have our rep Plus, Loki and the Grandmaster clearly had something going on in Ragnarok...

    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    I'm rereading Fool's Errand by Robin Hobb by listening to it on audiobook during my commute, and am just starting N.K. Jemisin's The Broken Earth trilogy.
