Arrow. Sara Lance.

When you fail at perception checks...

++ Apparently it's been clarified that Buffy the Vampire Slayer will not be remade. While that's great and all, I'm just wondering why this wasn't initially stated during the original announcement? It would have saved us all this anger and grief. Furthermore, this new statement is just as vague as the first one, and I have to be honest I'm still not entirely trusting of anything at this point. In an age where remakes/reboots are unfortunately dominating everything in media, we need something more direct and straightforward with a project like this instead of merely dancing around the subject, meaning we need more clarification and information on what their exact intentions are. Basically, they'll have to work pretty hard to prove that they're not bullshitting us. As for right now, I'm still remaining wary and apprehensive about this whole thing until we get more details.

++ So, about Wynonna Earp: Collapse )

++ In other news, we have the official Castlevania season two trailer and it looks absolutely amazing. If you haven't watched the first season, I highly recommend you should. It's only four episodes, each half and hour, and not only is the animation smooth and gorgeous but the story is very intriguing, not to mention dark and gorey. The second season will have eight episodes and, just from the looks of it, will be just as gruesome as the first, if not more, and I can't wait.

++ Terry Crews has appeared on the latest episode of CelebriD&D, a webseries on Geek & Sundry where celebrity guests who are fans of Dungeons & Dragons or other MMORPG games play a special one-shot game with the lovely DM, Matt Mercer. I think it's really cool that this series focuses on actors and celebrities that have a love of D&D, something that often gets overlooked in their careers unless they talk about it constantly in interviews and such, because it shows that people have always been geeky about these things, it's just that now since it's become more socially acceptable and mainstream to like geeky hobbies they're more likely to be open about their love of it. Vin Diesel is notorious for this, as is Joe Manganiello who is a massive D&D nerd (has guested both on this series and on Critical Role as his own created character), plus so many others. I love that it continues to normalize the fact that hey, celebrities are just like us, they love geeky nerdy shit just like we do and given the opportunity they will gush about it.

For those curious, I highly recommend watching this Terry Crews episode when you have the time, considering it's about two-and-a-half hours long. But it's so worth it. It's utterly delightful watching him just have so much fun, as it is with anyone who guests on this series. It's just a bunch of actors and voice actors playing together and having fun, that's basically the appeal of these kinds of games and watching others play. Though I wish that Terry would guest on a one-shot for the second campaign of Critical Role. Terry of the Nine-Nine teaming up with The Mighty Nein!
