    And like the article said, lacking in any kind of nuance! The just outright, openly known and self-aware racist who hates black people is almost a caricature, and if anything, more depressing than...

    And nowhere near the depth of world-building or character development or choices for story flexibility either, if we're comparing The Outer Worlds to Fallout 4 ... or 3 really, for that matter. I cut...

    I suppose this episode is meant to present the big twist that Sylvie isn't really the bad guy, instead the TVA are, but if that was the goal, I don't think it was done very well. She says something...

    Yeah, it's just bizarre that they would think anybody would want to watch that.

    I guess ... maybe they're thinking, it's kind of like Single White Female or Fatal Attraction? Where everyday life...

    Fair enough. As long as it works for the story of a given movie (or show), it's not like I'm opposed to the idea ... like the explanations given for Ant Man and Captain Marvel not being around for...

    Meh. I have given some thought to this idea, particularly as it relates to people saying how bringing the X-Men to the MCU will require explaining how they didn't get involved, with all the stuff...

    See, I think it would be weird for me if they do have some kind of special forces in reserve or something, because what were they waiting for? They've already been saying how many of their teams have...

    I enjoyed it. I think this show did a much better adaptation of its comics source material than Jupiter's Legacy did. Some of the changes just make sense, because things like the masks, the parallels...

    Well, my take on that moment was that he did know -- iirc, Loki had just been telling Mobius how he did watch some of those training videos, so I thought the guy was asking to see if Loki could show...

    That's just it, it's oversimplifying to suggest that "racist" can only be applied for the executives and investors if we mean that they are personally like consumed with some blind irrational hatred...

    Yeah, the interaction with Mobius and Loki is the heart of what carries the show so far, what makes it compelling enough to really get into. That and giving Hiddleston space to add more nuance to...

    Kind of like how Wolverine's mask would also hinder his vision, and Batman's, and how Spider-Man shouldn't be able to see at all. I wasn't suggesting he would somehow be able to see better with the...

    I feel like, on some level, the "cool" versus "silly" question is based not so much on how costumes can look in live action compared to comics -- because there legitimately does need to be some...

    Can't be bothered to look it up now, but pretty sure I recall some version of Waller who had kids .... don't know if that's comics, movie, or tv show, but do have some vague memory of that. Like, it...

    I think Carol's MCU introduction also suffered from its awkward placement, as far as the overall narrative goes. The other characters got the chance to be introduced and evolve over the course of...

    Okay. Sorry I condemned the founding fathers for being okay with slavery. They are inspiring heroes.

    Because lots of people do bad things, and if I say those things are bad, I'm the one who is...

    Eh, I don't think that is that hard to deal with, at least concept-wise, though of course that would still leave both details and execution to make it work well. But on a concept level, even if you...

    I think the problem is they didn't give any hint of any kind of plot or conflict to be interested in. Just, here's some characters who have apparently been around since caveman times, and apparently...

    I think that I do place them in the context of their times, which is why I think it's important to note that there always were people who opposed slavery on moral grounds, even before it ever became...

    I think this is my problem with the musical, and with veneration of the founders in general -- again, leaving aside the specifics of exactly how much Alexander Hamilton himself participated in the...

    Honestly, Alexander Hamilton's personal and individual beliefs about race, or even his practices in regards to slavery, are kind of beside the point, as far as my issue with the musical. I think what...

    I kind of don't like Hamilton.

    I mean, I get why it's popular, why so many people like it. It's a good story, has some good songs, performances are good. I am not saying that it's bad; just that I...
