And there are probably Into Darkness spoilers? At least mild ones. At least the kind where I reveal how much I liked it, which is spoilery enough for me to put it behind a jump.
Also my tumblr theme turns numbers into letters for NO REASON. So. There’s that.
I’m going to use a “read more” thing, which I’ve never used before.
I woke up this morning to find many messages from readers telling me to check out the Gutters. Today’s comic, written by the always amazing Jill Pantozzi with art by Amy Mebberson, addresses an issue pretty near to my heart. And, of course, the comments have the usual cast of idiots.
The last panel with Weezy, I swear. Her impact on the X-Men is so huge, she’s another creator that I’m so intimidated by in person (which is nuts because there seems to be no one nicer).
I have to make it a personal mission to start attributing the X-Men’s strong portrayal of women to Claremont’s two long-running editors, Louise Simonson and Ann Nocenti. I mean, Claremont did a lot, for sure, but for me to ignore the two women that helped him hone the X-Men for the best years of his run… that’s dumb of me.
Why not? I like lists. Geez, “The Office” has be mad introspective, like any series finale does. I watched every episode of “The Office” for nine seasons, starting with the first one. The first one! It feels weird, that, I watched the first two seasons of that show in Tennessee, and then moved to New York, and then people that I…knew and watched perform and took classes from ended up being on the show? Just weird… and, I’m rambling. FEELINGS. You watch a thing weekly for nine years (okay, the last four episodes I marathoned on Monday) and then it’s over.
So, I love television. Favorite last episodes, definitely not the technical best, but I love these:
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- The Office (UK)
- Friday Night Lights
- 30 Rock
- The Golden Girls
“The Office” US probably ranks too, I just need to digest it. It might be #9, It’s a finale I liked, so it goes on this list.
Okay, there haven’t actually been a lot of finales that I’ve watched. Or liked. I hated “Seinfeld’s” when it aired and I haven’t watched it since it aired. “Alias” lost me so hard that I was not invested in its finale. Same with “X-Files.” I remember being super disappointed with “Battlestar Galactica.” I love classic TV, but I haven’t seen the “Mary Tyler Moore” finale in context. I put “Golden Girls” on here because that last scene of all of them hugging repeatedly is brilliant. I did like the “Lost” finale a lot, that’s why it makes this list. I know you probably think I’m a moron for liking the “Lost” finale. I love Bob Newhart but never watched “Newhart” much. “The Dick Van Dyke Show” didn’t really have a finale (I think the last episode was some weird dream sequence?). “NewsRadio” just… sigh.
