    Finally saw Squid Game.

    Quality definitely dropped precipitously after Episode 6 IMO and the last episode in particular was too aimless for me, but still think it was decent after all despite being too reserved for me with the way it tackled its themes by the later parts of the show.

    Love how in Girl Genius all of the various Evil Genius tropes are basically right out there and everyone is fully aware (and accepting) of them.

    [Important Minion 1] Our boss is...really dropping the information on us right now, isn't she?

    [Important Minion 2] Yes. It's kind of odd, she's normally pretty parsimonious about that.

    [Important Minion 3] It must be that we're really close to success! She's planning to kill us soon.

    [IM 1 & 2] *smiling and nodding* Oh, right, right.

    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    ... I think it IS the finale.

    They usually announce it as the final episode of the season when they do get to the final episode.

    They didn't do that this time so I'm a bit unsure still. We'll see.

    I don't think you trot out Saitama for anything less than a season ender

    All I know is that Garou is lucky he wasn't caught in King's ultimate attack.

    And now King can let his buddy Saitama get some licks in. He hasn't done a lot this arc after all.

    A guy they can scale to limitless stats (thanks to Dr. Genus' statements) vs. A guy who, after consuming spinach, is also limitless (and a low-level reality warper). Sounds like a season ender to me.

    Kevin Feige confirms Daredevil Casting in the MCU. Look like Daredevil will be making a comeback.
    Ichigo: What even *are* you?!

    Kenpachi: Some say my mother was a train. Some say that I'm a rejected Godzilla monster too strong for the series canon. But everyone says: I'M THE KEEEEENPACHIIIIII!!!!

    It's the finale.

    And we know it's not gonna be a sprite fight, so I think it'll be one of the hand animated ones
