Just a few fannish things...Collapse )

Also, we now have the official Deadpool 2 trailer and if I wasn't hyped enough before this surely would do it. I don't know if it'll top the first film, though I like that they're kind of doing the meta thing with acknowledging that already in regards to there being a sequel, which I wouldn't expect anything less tbh. As a sidenote, Morena Baccarin looks so good. ❤

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

++ There is a behind-the-scenes look at Wolverine: The Long Night where Richard Armitage talks about the project and there is footage of what the filming of the audio process was like, which surprisingly was a little more interactive and mobile than you'd think when it comes to podcast productions. I'm fascinated by that, because you allow actors more ways of creating a more convincing performance if they're able to move about, and seeing brief glimpses of Richard basically get really into the moment with the scenes is so great, which makes me excited to listen to this podcast. Also, I feel like this is just one step away from him becoming involved in video games somehow. I don't know why, but I have a feeling, based on his voice work for audiobooks, animation and now a podcast series, doing voice acting and even motion capture for video games would be the next thing he could do to continue doing something new with his career.

++ Agents of SHIELD just recently had their 100th episode, which in celebration the fandom has been created a lot of fanwork to show their love, some of them are fanvideos which I want to share one in particular that made me super happy. It's of Daisy Johnson (my favorite ❤) and her growth since the beginning of the show. It does features spoilers, but it all happens so fast since it is a quick overview of her character story over the course of the series, and it's so well done.

Daisy Johnson, Agent of SHIELD.Collapse )

And without giving any spoilers, I have to say that the show continues to be absolutely amazing. They're in their fifth season and it is absolutely solid, so different from the previous seasons and yet still remains true to its core especially regarding the characters and their individual journeys that they've been on from the beginning. I've been enjoying the ride immensely.

++ Speaking of Marvel, with everything surrounding Avengers: Infinity War I find myself just not really caring that much? I think when it comes right down to it, I'm more of a casual watcher of superhero movies than most, meaning that I won't go see every single one in the theater, or at all, unless it actually interests me or it's something I'm genuinely excited to see. Also, the concept of having so many characters in one movie is a bit too overwhelming for me, personally, because even know Marvel has been building this up for a while I also know considering the time constraint on movies in general all of these characters won't get the equal amount of screentime, which bothers me since even movies that have a smaller ensemble can't even utilize that amount screentime for everyone. I don't think it's superhero fatigue, because I love certain movies that have come out recently and I really enjoy particular superhero television shows. I don't know, I'm just not feeling the hype. And perhaps that's the issue, there is a lot of hype surrounding these huge superhero films (both Marvel and DC, respectively) that I find myself not really caring unless it's something I'm really looking forward to seeing, or waiting until all of that hype quiets down before seeing it myself without any other outside influence. Does that make sense?

++ I didn't watch the Oscars, I only paid attention to everyone reacting to it in real time, but I am so very happy that The Shape of Water won Best Picture. Part of me wishes that Get Out could have gotten it, as I feel like it deserved more wins (and it really would have stuck it to the Academy members who had really racist opinions about the film itself), but if there was to be another film to win instead anything by Guillermo del Toro would do. At least Get Out won for best original screenplay, which makes history as Jordan Peele is the first black person to win the award. The Shape of Water, Get Out, and Coco were the highlight wins of the event, which makes me happy.

++ The teaser for the second season of Luke Cage looks absolutely hype.

++ Krysten Ritter speculates that there won't be another season of The Defenders. I'm not even remotely surprised by this, considering how lukewarm and blah the first season was. The basic concept had potential but combined with the bad writing and execution of plot it just didn't deliver and was a huge letdown. Though I guess it served its purpose of getting the main characters together in some way, but it still could've been much better than it was. It's disappointing since it didn't take full advantage of the time they had, you know what I mean? At least now we can have them appearing and guesting in each other's respective shows.

++ We have a trailer for The Expanse S3 and it looks so good, I can't wait.

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much.

This was incredibly difficult because I basically wanted to turn this into a massive recommendation post, but I have something in mind for a separate post later. And because there were a lot of things I wanted to choose from, I kind of wanted to do this in different categories. Some of these are very interesting and unconventional choices, while others are rather predictable for me, but nonetheless this was fun to kind of think about and put together.

This may be a shitshow, but it's our shitshow!Collapse )

Also in casting news, Megan Follows is joining the third season, which is pretty exciting.

Plus, it seems that Syfy is allowing shows to use profanity, particularly 'fuck', more now which I'm hoping that the writers for Wynonna Earp take full advantage of. I'm just sad that we don't get this same courtesy over on Netflix's Marvel shows, particularly for characters like Jessica Jones.

++ Vox Machina: An Exandrian Musical is a fan-created musical combining Hamilton and Critical Role. The cast of Critical Role have been fans of the Hamilton musical for some time now, and some fans decided to kind of use this inspiration to tell the story of the first campaign with their own version of the musical, to which cast have responded very positively to it. It truly is very, very well done. Granted, it won't necessarily make sense unless you have watched the first campaign, and it does contain spoilers. However, I highly recommend listening to at least the first track.

++ Speaking of Hamilton, we have "The Hamilton Polka" which is "Weird Al" Yankovic's remixed contribution. You know you've made it when Weird Al does a parody of your work.

++ And now we have premieres of upcoming shows: the second season of Jessica Jones premieres on March 8th on Netflix, Brooklyn Nine-Nine resumes their season on March 18th, the new Freeform series Siren premieres March 29th, the second season of Legion premieres on April 3th, The Expanse premieres its third season on April 11th, Elementary will return on April 30th, the series premiere of Cloak & Dagger is on June 7th. I know some were worried about Brooklyn Nine-Nine but it will return, with a possible amazing casting announcement that I'm happy about. I'm very excited about Jessica Jones and The Expanse, I still have to see the first season of Legion but just watching the trailers for the second season has intrigued me very much. Granted I'm mostly really liking them because of Aubrey Plaza, but y'know. And I'm quite curious about the new shows, Siren and Cloak & Dagger. Of course, these are the shows upcoming in the next few months. I'm still looking forward to some of my other shows later in the year, like Wynonna Earp and the Sense8 finale special which I'm really looking forward to.

There are, of course, some other shows that I want to check out but haven't yet, such as Altered Carbon and Marvel's Runaways. This is mostly due to my procrastination and also still being behind on some of my shows. I'm slowly rectifying this, though.

Recommend a fannish or creative resource.

Since I've been kind of obsessed with Critical Role lately, here are some resources that I think are helpful for those who are either just getting into the show, thinking about getting into it, or are just curious about it.

++ Another trailer for S2 of Jessica Jones, it's mostly some footage from the first season with snippets of the second, but still effective in getting you absolutely hyped for it nonetheless. It is both so close yet so far away.

Some talk about the show in general, no major spoilers but just in case.Collapse )

++ Doctor Who is getting a brand new logo and it is so gorgeous. I really love it.

++ One Day At A Time is a Netflix half-hour sitcom series that has two seasons so far, but the fear of it getting cancelled has been noticeable that the showrunner has urged fans and newcomers alike to watch at least four episodes of the show to let Netflix know that it deserves to be renewed. This was announced a while ago and idk if it'll still make an difference, but it never hurts to try!

I haven't watched the show myself just yet, but I have heard a lot of great things about it, particularly the inclusion of LGBT represenation, which has been the biggest draw for many people (this scene especially has been making the rounds lately, getting even more people invested). Alongside being a heartwarming show about family, and a Latino family at that, it also tackles heavy and serious topics, which according to others is handled very well for episodes that are only half an hour long. I've only seen clips from it and I will eventually find the time to watch this show, but I hope it does end up getting renewed because it is rare to find sitcoms that tackle serious issues and being aware of the social climate while still being genuinely funny. And apparently, because it's on Netflix, it's allowed to go to places that sitcoms or even most dramas on national television aren't able to, which is pretty awesome.
