Re: There's a Word for That

I would have said "Expy" but that's the TV Tropes word for a fictional character who is unmistakably another fictional character. Their term is "No Celebrities Were Harmed" which is rather clunky.

Maybe slightly misremembering the context? Anyway, I was also surprised at how uncommon the generic is for that.

Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

If you can pull of the proper faux-innocent attitude, you could try asking your wretched MIL if she thinks her grandkids should be separated from all of their relatives, and the twins separated from each other (because they have different naughty bits), and locked up in Walmarts or tent cities beca...

Re: If We Build It, They'll Probably Still Come

I'm frustrated by how many arguments I see (genuine bad reasoning or just being assholes?) conflate opposing a certain type of punishment with saying "there shouldn't be any punishment at all." You try to say the government's actions are unacceptable and the response is "Well, those people broke the...

Re: To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

I'm halfway through Anon and getting more and more dubious that it's going to pull itself together. It's an interesting premise but really vast swaths of the movie are just shots of a room full of people staring off into space.

Lots of naked boobies tho

To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

At this point there are enough Netflix original shows that they could have their own thread apart from the TV thread, so why not? Because I am me I will kick it off with a complaint. Marcella season 1 wasn't memorable but was decent; from what I recall a good central mystery but an annoying main cha...

I read a decent chunk -- I see the craft but it's not my cup of tea. I just couldn't help sharing that was the first thing that jumped out at me and drove me nuts even though this is OBVIOUSLY NOT AN ACTUAL TV SHOW. :lol:

Re: I just don't get it

I am not familiar with the "hanging a"! Perhaps it is a Southern thing. I also don't understand how anyone can notice what tone of voice young women are using when they have to, like, listen, like, to the words, like, through an endless, like, parade of like-as-filler utterances.

Re: Zack Snyder's Slow Motion French Fries: the DCEU Thread

Flash is fabulous. It's a great mix of humor, drama, comic book style battles, lampshade hanging, and believable friendships. None of the over-the-top grim angst of Arrow. Supergirl is pretty good as well, but Flash is my favorite. (Season 3 lags but they get back on track this season!)
