  • Great Moments in White Privilege

We tried y'all.  We really did.  The series final episodes had a lot of filler, some great character moments, and set up something promising-and then wimped out in the end.  We discuss why 12 Monkeys did not live up to the promise of the first season, and the problem with comaparing apples and avocados.  We also discuss the problem with current fandom, particularly individuals being upset that not everyone likes the same thing, and how liking something doesn't make it good.

We're continuing our Summer of Character Corner expansions with a new Character Corner/Comic Book Book Club hybrid. We're kicking off our discussion of Jonathan Hickman's Marvel run by discussing his wonderful Fantastic Four Run. Hickman fundamentally changed the Marvel Universe, starting in 2009 with Secret Warriors all the way through the 2015 Secret Wars. We'll be revisiting Secret Wars (And S.H.I.E.L.D.) next month and wrapping up with Avengers/New Avengers/Secret Wars. But we decided to start with Fantastic Four since the founding family of Marvel will be returning with their own solo book written by Dan Slott next month. Also, we've referenced this run a lot (From our Doctor Doom Part 3 to Black Panther to our Premium New Avengers/Secret Wars Comic Book Book Clubs) but we've never sat down and made it our focus. That changes now.

Issues/Reading Order:

Kriss, The Doctor, and Rod from The Black Guy Who Tips discuss season 1 of a show that was done criminally wrong by SyFy. The Doctor decided to rewatch the movie and tries (unsuccessfully) to make a case as to why the movie is not so bad in concert with the show. We also discuss the diversity of characters, including strong women characters, the complexity of the relationships, daddy issues, and why Dominion is the show that ruined Buffy's Giles for us. Take a listen and then watch the show if you haven't yet!

We will be back for a review of season 2 on the premium feed!

This week, Shanna, Parrish and The Doctor discuss everything Cloak & Dagger from Ty having too much bass in his voice to whether there's enough space in that cop car for O'Reilly to be getting it on during her lunch break.

Hiroja and The Doctor are back for the series finale of 12 Monkeys.  This season picks up where the last one left off with our team fighting for their survival as Olivia, revealing herself as the true witness, attempts to eliminate them completely.  Using the technology that apparently was available in the facility the entire time, they splinter a portion of the facility to a new location.  Originally they think they've only moved in space, but it turns out they've created a T.A.R.D.I.S. and have also gone back in time to the very beginning of season 1.

Yes, it's just as ridiculous as it sounds.  This show is leaning in to the whole idea of "to hell with our own rules and mythology, let's just throw something at the wall and see if it sticks."  The first six episodes as reviewed here have some great moments.  After all, Cassie's face when Jennifer tells her and Cole to do "butt stuff only" is priceless.   The opening sequence of the first episode is well done, and the actors are wonderful in their roles.  In a show though where they keep breaking the rules they've made in the same episode and where there is nothing but a loop of time, it starts to get long and drawn out for no reason.  We discuss here what worked for the first half of the last season, what didn't work, and where the show appears to be heading next.  We also rant a bit about why SyFy refuses to embrace their heritage and allow their SCIENCE FICTION SHOWS TO BE GREAT!
