2020.05.21 06:06 salvbitch character ranking!

best to worst. while this is more or less reflective of my real opinions please do not be offended if I sh*t on one of your faves, it's mean to be lighthearted and you're all always free to disagree. note: I combined some characters that I believe effectively behave as one entity. also warning: this is long
  1. Paris--bonkers bitch who you would avoid IRL, but on TV? A queen. Madam Geller is the single most driven, hardworking person on this show, and she does not give one F what anybody (except Harvard undergrad admissions office?) thinks. If she has a thought she will share it whether you want to hear it or not--they might not be polite, but they are scathingly accurate! Not to mention her wacko love life which added some much-needed spice to the pseudovirginal GG landscape. She was played immaculately by Liza Weil and had a respectable arc. They should NOT have divorced her from Doyle in the revival though >:(
  2. Emily--yes, she was often mean and judgmental, but her absolute refusal to put up with anyone's shit was incredibly admirable. Lorelai would make some immature quip and Ms. Emily would convey her reaction with a single blink. the time she took down mrs huntzberger? iconic. More importantly, she always wanted the best for Lorelai and Rory and her unsolicited input over how Lorelai should live her life genuinely came from a protective instinct. Emily was also a loving and dutiful wife for decades and extremely financially generous toward Lorelai & Rory asking only for time spent together in return. Where is my sugar grandma taking me on trips to europe and buying me upper east side apartments? also, Kelly Bishop is masterful. ok im done
  3. Michel--Michel should have been fired 3 episodes in IRL but we're suspending our disbeliefs. he might have been a) French (bleh) and b) incredibly rude (undeniably related to a)) but he honestly provided a voice of reason in the face of the wackadoodle townies and their weird habits. also, as someone who doesn't like dealing with loud little kids or nuisances&inconveniences in general, he was a relatable king. lastly, the revival FINALLY confirmed what we always knew: he singlehandedly made the show less aggressively hetero.
  4. Miss Patty--later in the show she and Babette became kind of indistinguishable, but early seasons Patty was juuuust the right amount of savage. She was also a seasoned expert at getting literally all of the tea but managed to never be malicious about it, which is an undeniable feat. She was like a cool aunt for the entire frickin' town, a happy single older woman (right? am i forgetting something?)and you know she would have some elite stories up her sleeve.
  5. Madeline and Louise--Whenever I got tired of Paris's insanity or Rory's dishrag-ness, these two were here to be normal teenage girls. Good for them! Also, the actress that played Louise was effing gorgeous and I was obsessed with her hair in every episode. I will say, however, that it always seemed like they would suit each other's names more than their own, and it was annoying that just because they liked to have a little more fun than Rory and Paris they haaad to be written as ditzes who dropped out of college.
  6. Lucy (and Olivia)--tbh I barely remember Olivia but it felt rude not to throw her in here. Lucy, on the other hand: I love Krysten Ritter so I'm biased, but again, Lucy was a good foil to Rory and Paris's weird intensity and seemed like a fun, nice, normal person who maybe lowkey should have had her own show. Yes, she dated a tool, but we all do--and, most importantly, she recognized in the end that he was a tool and didn't end up tearing Rory down because of it. #teamlucy
  7. Babette--I love Babette but shawtys voice could get grating. Her and Miss Patty's friendship was goals, she and Morrie were lowkey one of the most compatible-seeming pairings on the show, and she provided good cat-person representation, but there were definitely some episodes when she seemed just a liiitttle too ~~quirky~~ to be charming. Also who tf is named Babette? She deserves appreciation though, so #7 it is
  8. Sookie--I would have put Sookie higher because she's so damn nice all the time and makes good food that she is generous with, and these are two very desirable qualities in a person. However, I really could not abide the ludicrousness of her "I'm acting crazy so I must be pregnant" plots. You didn't realize you missed your period? You can't pee on a stick? Wtf is going on here? It took up enough screentime to make me seriously tired of her character in the later seasons. Also, sometimes she needed to put her foot down and tell Lorelai to stop being ridiculous about various matters
  9. Kirk--Kirk is good comic relief. He would be annoying to know in real life but compared to many others in GG he's honestly pretty inoffensive. He's funny and genuinely good-hearted. His constant innovative grind also deserves some respect--but points off for not just trying to get a normal job after 17 years and for almost dumping Lulu.
  10. DiggeJason--OKAY DIgger deserved better. He was a witty, respectful king who politely communicated his needs and boundaries to Lorelai and wasn't afraid to spoil her a little bit. Their banter was on point and they understood each other's upbringings. He got completely screwed over by whatever business debacle happened between him and Richard. Glad to know he's doing well in AYITL
  11. Logan--Logan is a hard one to assess because his characterization was a bit all over the place. Based on the OS, yes he was smarmy and overprivileged, but so was Rory and he was self-aware. He helped Rory have some fun with the life and death brigade (one of the most normal things she did at Yale), was totally in love with her, didn't get possessive and insecure when Rory had a tiny crush on someone else (like pretty much every other main love interest on GG would have), and was extremely patient in the face of Lorelai's rude line of questioning and judgment about his financial mistake. IK people think he brought out the worst in Rory but this attributes her very little agency imo. The Marty situation was a bit out of line but so was Rory asking him to go along with their weird lie. WHatever the F was going on in AYITL notwithstanding, Logan was a flawed but good person and boyfriend.
  12. Lane--Lane was a good rebellious foil to Rory in earlier seasons and I appreciated their s1-3 friendship a lot. her plight with her mom was realistic and sympathetic, and she was always a good and supportive person for Rory to talk to. As soon as Rory went to college, however, it seemed like the writers didn't know what to do with Lane anymore. Enter Zach, marriage and children at age 22, and the end of her music/career goals. Would it have killed the writers to not give a single woman on GG an unplanned pregnancy? Whenever they needed a plot with a female character, pregnancy it was. I guess there's still Paris...also, after all that weird messaging she internalized from her mom about sex, she can't have sex even within marriage and not HATE it and instantly get pregnant? fucked up!! People can say this is realistic all they want, but that doesn't mean it's a fulfilling character arc or innovative writing decision.
  13. Dave--Adam Brody is sexy and Dave was smart and sweet and had potential. Fuck the OC for snatching him. Not ranked higher purely because there wasn't enough of him.
  14. Doyle--I have a soft spot for Danny Strong in general, and he killed it as Doyle. His breakup with Paris in s7 was one of the most realistically-acted ones on the show. He wasn't intimidated by Paris's bluntness or drive and they should not have been written as divorced in the revival!!
  15. Rachel--Rachel was cool, witty, and adventurous. She was also pretty mature and gracious in her romantic endeavors and helped Lorelai find the dragonfly, so good for her
  16. Max--boring but cute and so nice. deserved better. bye max
  17. Finn and Colin--fun, jovial, friendly lads. Not enough screentime to be in the top but I enjoyed all the screentime they had, and that's saying something.
  18. Caesar--Caesar was barely on GG but you could tell he had serious heart. He was a reliable and competent diner employee and should have risen the ranks somehow
  19. Richard--I know this is probably controversial but Richard....meh. Displayed several moments of genuine compassion for Rory and/or Lorelai and definitely kind at heart, but such a boring rich old white dude. Also acted like a complete man-baby on several occasions, notably when he had to eat fish after a heart attack, and didn't appreciate all that Emily did for him enough.
  20. Mrs Kim--crazy woman who damanged Lane forever, but somehow lovable at the same time? Her screen presence was formidable and her relationship with Lorelai was actually pretty interesting. I like my doses of Mrs Kim. I have to ask the eternal question, though: where tf is Mr Kim?
  21. Mia--nice and generous person but I really don't remember her enough to say she left any sort of strong impression
  22. Shane--used by Jess and judged extremely harshly by Rory for no reason. Also bullied by Rory at her place of work for no reason. Team Shane.
  23. Lindsay--deserved better. but also why did she enter a marriage at age 19 with some weird understanding that she wasn't going to work or go to school? didn't make sense.
  24. the reverend and the rabbi--we love an interfaith friendship
  25. the town troubadour--he was mildly funny
  26. Alex borstein Harp lady--she was a complainer but her complaints were kind of valid
  27. Alex borstein dress lady--funky and fun
  28. Headmaster Charleston--simultaneously a hardass and a chiller. I respect him, even though he had the fuddy-duddiest of voices and vibes
  29. Brad Langford--funny. Glad he thrived on Broadway
  30. Long hair guy in lane's band--a family man on the rock and roll grind. respect
  31. Study tree guy--he had as much of a right to that tree as Rory
  32. Morrie--rock that hat Morrie. pamper Babette for us
  33. Gypsy--There's nothing wrong with Gypsy. I just never found myself emotionally attached to her for some reason. a true neutral
  34. Rory--where to even begin? Rory started out the show as a relatively normal teenage girl with obvious academic drive and intellectual curiosity, which is respectable. However, she went downhill fast, falling into a seemingly lifelong pattern of remorseless cheating and inability to confront obstacles. I mean, dopping out of school because one person doubted her? Having nightmares that she was going to be a garbage collector because she didn't get into one program? She was also self-absorbed as hell after s3 and never seemed to realize. Furthermore, she was actively mean & judgmental towards other people (mostly women) on multiple occasions--see the ballerina article and Shane above. Then, of course, there's the fact that she was extremely privileged and didn't seem to grasp that. Yet, everyone on the show acted like she was perfect, and she was in no hurry to correct them. Even Alexis Bledel seemed tired of playing her in the later seasons. She was somewhat redeemed for me in the revival, when she actually *started* to learn that she didn't automatically deserve everything going her way. Points to her for being studious and an attentive granddaughter but that's sort of it. Also: there is no way in hell she would have gotten into Harvard, Princeton AND Yale! I get that it was easier to get into college in 2003 than it is now, and Yale made sense because she had connections, but there must have been thousands of other applicants like her. There was a boy in my school (a rigorous prep school like Chilton) who got into Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton, and you know why? On top of having near-perfect grades and a buttload of extracurriculars, he developed a model for curing potato blight (you know, that thing that caused the irish famine) and won a quarter million dollars in a science competition for it. Rory is just not on tri-Ivy level. And yes I'm consdering Stanford to effectively be an Ivy
  35. Lorelai--Lorelai ranks under Rory because she is older and should know better, and is also most of the reason Rory is the way she is. I have a theory that her emotional development froze at 16, something that never seems to occur to her. If Lorelai's not bitching about how awful her parents were for being stuffy WASPs, she's asking them for money. You can't have it both ways Lor :/. Props to her for building a career from the ground up with no college degree while raising a child though
  36. Luke--Luke was originally a shy, lovable, slightly misanthropic local man with understandable romantic appeal. Like so many others, however, his characterization went downhill as the series progressed and by the later seasons he was a perpetually grumpy, possessive, jealous, occasionally violent (yes, twice is a pattern in this case) dude with anger issues. I know all this is a spicy take because he and Lorelai are a fan favorite, but also he ghosted their engagement and lied to her for months about April?? And he was always so weirdly paternalistic with Rory, not in only a sweet father figure way but in a preserving-her-virture way (see: his "rules" for Jess when he dated her versus his complete apathy towards Shane). He didn't bother me as much in AYITL but it was disappointing to see that somehow his and Lorelai's communication hadn't improved
  37. Christopher--Christopher is outwardly charming and initially seems like he might be a better love interest than Luke, but that facade melts away quickly. He has all of the same issues as Luke, getting into a literal fight with him and becoming jealous & ending a marriage over a CHARACTER REFERENCE. Also, the fact that he wasn't there when Richard had his heart attack is unforgivable, and he somehow manages to be an absentee father to two separately-mothered children
  38. Jackson--sort of like Luke, Jackson was originally a relatively inoffensive grump, and he provided our girl Sookie with fresh veg so, I supported him. After they got married, though, he somehow became so damn annoying whenever he was onscreen and wanted to treat Sookie like a plot of land in his garden that could just grow him children on command. She shouldn't have ordered him to get a vasectomy but the fact that he lied about it is so heinous
  39. Jamie--very forgettable. Paris shouldn't have cheated on him though
  40. Brian--kind of annoying but makes some good points
  41. Robert--he had good taste in movies, I guess?
  42. Zack--has a stupid way of talking and ruined the band's chances at success
  43. April--sweet kid but her whole existence was a dumb plot device and she was written in the revival to be, like, the 1995 version of a kid who falls in with a stoner crowd in college. A rastafarian beanie? in 2016? really??
  44. Dean--ugh, Dean. He begins as a pseudocosmopolitan leather-jacket wearing guy who's nice, knows how to flirt, and is interested in books. Then somehow he ends up as...a bumpkin who dropped out of community college and got married at 19 under some agreement that his near-child bride was going to be a housewife? Make it make sense
  45. Mitchum--rude dude in a bad mood. Really, though, I don't think he deserves aalllll the hate he gets, but he deserves a lot of it. He should have given Rory feedback earlier in her internship in a more constructive rather than fatalistic manner.
  46. Sherry--I love Madchen Amick but this whole character was weird.
  47. Marty--entitled "nice guy" who had the bright idea of lying to Lucy about knowing Rory
  48. Jess--I know this is going to start some shit but Jess was so damn rude all the time. To everyone. The fact that two people like books does not mean they have to date. I'm not opposed to an attractive bad boy but he wasn't even charming. He also berated Rory for not wanting to have sex with him at a random party which is suuuper wack, and he up and left town without even saying goodbye only to bust into her dorm a year later? Out of pocket behavior. Glad he got his shit together by AYITL.
  49. Lulu--this poor woman exists only to be Hot Girl Who Kirk Dates
  50. Tristan--uhhhh. Chad Michael Murray is cute and all but that "Mary" shit is not, and neither is lying about someone going on a date with you or trying to emotionally blackmail them in their current relationship. I hope military school straightened him out
  51. Richard's mother--kind of funny but a genuinely terrifying woman
  52. Beau--funny but creepy
  53. Gigi--wtf happened to gigi? super weird that Rory has this half-sister out there in the world but she basically barely exists to her.
  54. Nicole--Nicole was fine, the cheating was contrived. not much else to say
  55. Francie--mean. funny in AYITL though
  56. Anna nardini---ughhh this woman. WACK! unless the man in question is abusive, it's super weird to not tell him you're having his kid, and even weirder to not let him see said kid when he finds out. gtfo anna
  57. Taylor--Taylor was well-acted, I'll give him that. I know he was supposed to be the ultimate quirky townie but there was nothing endearing enough to justify putting up with his insane behavior imo.
  58. Christopher's father (and mother)--father was unrealistically, comically villainous. I barely even remember the mother.
  59. Rune (Jackson's cousin)--rudest ever
  60. Asher--why are you fucking one of your students?
  61. all of emily's maids--bad running gag, did not age well
  62. Liz and TJ--I know a lot of people find them funny/endearing but they were egregiously annoying to me. It seems like the term "meatheads" was invented specifically for these two. On top of being straight-up stupid they were so rude and imposing towards Luke, always expecting him to house them or help them out with whatever they wanted at a moment's notice. Who names their kid Doula because they had a doula? Also, the whole fact that Liz just pawned her own son off on Luke one day and never really bothered with him again is just...glossed over.
  63. Paul--The only person who could rank lower than Liz and TJ purely because he shouldn't have existed at all. He added literally nothing to the plot. Zero.

2019.08.14 16:40 bsjustice Disney Plus article discussed complicated way ahead w/Netflix shows

Cross posted in a reply to a closeout thread Defenders:
Some interesting content from
Netflix's Marvel Defenders shows are complicated too. Netflix has put out five original series based on Defenders characters in partnership with Disney. In 2018, Netflix canceled three of them: Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Then in 2019, Netflix canceled the last two: The Punisher and Jessica Jones. Kevin Mayer, the Disney executive in charge of Disney Plus, has said Disney Plus could possibly revive the canceled shows. But the terms of their original deal could restrict Disney Plus from any revivals until 2020, according to a report.
With the third, and now final, season of Jessica Jones having hit Netflix in June, all we know about the future of these characters is Marvel Television chief Jeph Loeb teasing fans that the characters will continue in some form.

2019.01.29 05:12 garhdo An MCU Completionist's Rewatch - Week Four

Watch Order
Week One, Week Two, Week Three, Week Four, Week Five, Week Six, Week Seven, Week Eight, Week Nine, Week Ten, Week Eleven, Week Twelve, Week Thirteen,

A day later than expected. Last week on my marathon I ended by watching both Guardians of the Galaxy films, two of the more fantastical entries in the MCU, and now I’m about to follow them up with two of the grittiest, most grounded entries - Daredevil and Jessica Jones. As its a lot of episodes I made most of these notes while watching, so apologies for the wall of text, but if I did it episode by episode that would look even worse...
Daredevil Season One
Jessica Jones Season One
It took a bit longer this week. My pace slowed a bit due to not being able to watch these shows around my children, and I had to take a bit of a break in the middle with some Brooklyn Nine Nine to laugh as this stuff can be grim. If I was doing a true episode by episode chronological order I’d have had some episodes of Agents of SHIELD to break up the tension, but not this time. However for the rest of this week its back to Season Two of Agents of SHIELD, followed by more Netflix stuff next week with Daredevil Season Two and Luke Cage Season One. As usual I’d love to discuss your views on all this below if you want.

2018.10.08 14:27 Anonymous_1-2-3-4-5 MCU Netflix Behind the Scenes Facts *Wanted to do this for fun* Day 27: The Defenders

So i'm going to go on IMDB and look at each MCU movies behind the scenes facts and POST THE MOST INTERESTING ONES here, I will post each movie a day instead of what I did before where I did 10 posts, I will start with the first Iron Man and each day will be the next MCU movie after it, ending with Guardians 3, I will also do the Netflix Shows, Agents of Shield and Agent Carter


1. Matt Murdock plays The Defenders' theme song on the piano in episode six, The Defenders: Ashes, Ashes (2017).

2. In this series, the founding members of the Defenders are Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. In the comics, the Defenders were formed by The Incredible Hulk, Doctor Strange, Silver Surfer, and Namor the Sub-Mariner.

3. In the first few episodes, the production uses colored light to great effect to separate out each individual Defender story. Each scene involving Daredevil has a hint of red. Jessica Jones is lit with purple. Iron Fist with green and Luke Cage is lit in shades of yellow. As the series progresses and the Defenders become aligned, the four colors eventually turn into more neutral whites and blues.

4. In the Marvel Comics, the Defenders have a constantly shifting roster. As of 2016, the Marvel Comic Universe has eighteen characters who have appeared in the Defenders:
Dr. Strange and the Incredible Hulk (who have their own films)
Captain America (who has his own series) Yondu, Drax the Destroyer, and Howard the Duck (from Guardians of the Galaxy (2014))
Scarlet Witch and the Vision (from Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015))
Hank Pym and Scott Lang (Ant-Man) and Janet van Dyne (Wasp) (from Ant-Man (2015)) Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist (who all have their own series)
Patsy Walker (Hellcat) (in Jessica Jones (2015))
Valkyrie (from Thor: Ragnarok (2017))
Spider-Man (from Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017))
Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) (from Captain Marvel (2019)).

5. The last shot of Danny Rand features him crouched on a rooftop overlooking the city, apparently fulfilling Daredevil's request to keep his city safe. In the comics, Danny became Daredevil to help fool the world after Matt's secret identity was outed.

6. The budding friendship between Luke Cage and Danny Rand is a reference to the Heroes for Hire, a small business started by the two in the comics. Both actors have stated their desire to make a Heroes for Hire series.

7. One of the trailers shows black and white security camera footage of the four defenders in an elevator with a time stamp in the top right corner. The time reads, "8:18", in hours and minutes. This is a reference to the release date of August 18th.

8. Sigourney Weaver was announced to join the series on her 67th birthday. Her character's name is Alexandra, which happens to be her middle name in real-life.

9. As of this series, Captain America and Iron Man are the only Avengers referred to by name (Captain America in Daredevil (2015) Season One, Tony Stark in Season One of Luke Cage (2016)). All other references were rather subtle such as "an iron suit, or a magic hammer" said by Wesley in Daredevil, and "The big green dude and his crew" by both Luke and Jessica in Jessica Jones (2015).

10. The names of The Defenders' stars appear based on the release date of their respective character's solo series. The order is as follows. Daredevil played by Charlie Cox, Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter, Luke Cage played by Mike Colter, and Iron Fist played by Finn Jones.

11. Throughout the series Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones) Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) all wear the colors of their respective character. Iron Fist wears something of green clothing, Daredevil wears something red, and Luke Cage wears something with yellow in it.

12. Contains the largest amount of series regulars out of any of the Marvel Netflix series. All previous shows have had thirteen episode seasons while the Defenders is the shortest at eight episodes. This was the case as production had to begin on the second seasons of Jessica Jones (2015) and Luke Cage (2016).

13. This crossover mini-series was pitched to Netflix at the same time as the series that lead up to it, Daredevil (2015), Jessica Jones (2015), Luke Cage (2016), and Iron Fist (2017).

14. Sigourney Weaver was earlier going play a comic book supervillain; when Director Bryan Singer was involved in the early stages of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), he had written the role of the main antagonist, Emma Frost, with Weaver in mind. Weaver's character Alexandra has a penchant for wearing all white, very similarly to Emma Frost.

15. Misty loses her hand and gets a bionic one later on, just like in the comics. She also teams up with Colleen to keep fighting crime in the comics storyline.

16. Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver), Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho), Sowande (Babs Olusanmokun), Murakami (Yutaka Takeuchi), and Bakuto (Ramon Rodriguez) are the "Five fingers of The Hand". Madame Gao first appeared in Daredevil (2015) and Bakuto first appeared in Iron Fist (2017).

2018.04.04 22:15 Avenged7fo (3x17 mild spoilers) Because of that meta-crossover yesterday, imagine the laughs if the Marvel Netflix leads appear as extras in LOT

not gonna happen since this is logistically impossible but imagine the level of meta if ever Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, and Jon Bernthal cameo'd on Legends as extras that mildly resemble their Marvel Netflix characters.
Like have the Legends go to a Catholic church and show Charlie Cox while wearing his shades, praying in the background.
Have Mick get drunk at some bar, bumps into a lady (Krysten), the lady turns around and yells "watch it!"
Have the Legends have a mission in Harlem and have Mike be a bystander that sees Nate steel up. Nate deflects the bullets and Mike goes like "hm. bulletproof, i wish i could do that".
Have Sara infiltrate a business building and have her get caught by Finn Jones. Finn Jones tries to put up a fight and gets taken down immediately. Sara says something like "a businessman who can fight. dated a guy like that once"
Have Nate talk about a famous soldier back in the past. While Nate's voiceover is going on, Jon Bernthal plays a non-speaking role of that soldier.

2017.06.19 05:07 sadsexlessgirl New here, never thought I'd post. [28F]

I love my husband, and I love my marriage. They are both probably the best things that have ever happened to me. I love my 6-month-old daughter and the idea of having more kids with the man I love is very exciting to me. Unfortunately, just having her was an ordeal, to say the least.
When we first started dating, we had sex pretty frequently. My ex was a sex fiend and I sort of considered multiple times a day the norm. When I met my now-husband and we began our sexual relationship, it was the perfect number, like 3-4 times a week. He's just my type and I find him incredibly sexy, both physically and personality-wise. We are both strongly attracted to thin people. We are both strongly attracted to intelligent people. On paper it works so well.
We've been intimate very few times (maybe 7 or 8, including when we were TTC) in the last year. I don't believes he thinks about sex very much; he is absolutely the opposite of the stereotypical "man who thinks about sex and wants it constantly". I've tried not saying or initiating anything for months, and he doesn't seem to notice. He is successful and well-respected at work (he just got a new job that I was hoping would rekindle his drive and desire after months of stress at his old one), an avid gamer, and he meshes seamlessly and beautifully with my family. Emotionally, this relationship doesn't want for anything; I stay home and take care of the baby (I work two days a week with her on my hip), and he makes me feel appreciated and valued for everything, whether it's getting up at night with her or picking up formula. He gives me money to spend on my hobbies, and he encourages me to spend time on them and pursuing other (platonic) relationships.
I also know that he enjoys showing me off. I had a baby 6 months ago and I'm still trying to shake off the last sticky 10 pounds, but I'm an attractive woman (maybe not conventionally, but in a quirky indie-movie way? I kind of resemble Krysten Ritter with blue eyes.) I spend a lot of time on my hair and makeup, and I hit the gym 4-5 times a week because looking good and not being complacent are important to me. EVERY time I'm at the gas station someone tries to get my number. Today when I was on the elliptical, every time I looked up one of the muscly weightlifters was making eyes at me and smiling. Clearly, I'm not so out-of-shape and disgusting that bodybuilders aren't flirting with me from across the gym. When we go out and I dress up in something short or slinky, I know that my husband gets off a little on the way other men look at us and feel jealous. I like this, too... and yet I can't help but feel like a little bit of a troglodyte when it's just us alone.
I don't think it's that he doesn't see me as a sexual being, I think it might be that he doesn't see himself as a sexual being? It's very strange. The sex tapered off pretty gradually over the years; he was in his mid-twenties when we started dating and I was in my early twenties. Now I'm in my late twenties and he's in his early thirties, but shouldn't we be in our sexual prime? I'm carrying an extra ten pounds, but I'm taller than average, so it's not like it looks horrible. Most people admit that I don't look any different to them, or compliment my figure (I was reed-thin before pregnancy, and I'm a little curvier now, with a relatively flat stomach.) I've worked super hard to get back in shape, and I'm continuing to work hard. I've also been developing other skills while being a mother; not a single moment gets wasted during the day. I feel like one of the things that attracted my husband to me initially was the fact that I'm fairly well-rounded and have a few developed "skills". I'm a musician; I've played an instrument since I was a small child, and I'm accomplished at it now. I speak a foreign language fluently just because I decided I wanted to learn how. I keep our social life and appointments organized and in order, and a decently clean house (Laundry and dishes get done every day, and deeper cleans once or twice a week. It's not perfect but it's better than most of our friends' houses.) I think I'm a good mother, in that I spend a lot of time with our daughter, I'm attentive to her needs, and I go "above and beyond" with her in little ways. I wrote another two verses to "Puff the Magic Dragon" so it would have a happy ending. I sing to her constantly. That child does not sit in a dirty diaper for more than about a minute before I'm Rescue Mommy and get her all cleaned up. We walk, and explore, and play.
And at night, I go workout. I come home and drink while my husband games because I'm so fucking lonely. I take four hour baths. I roleplay online to get away to a different world where I have some power, control and influence (and sex!). But I'm not getting any in the real world.
When I had my baby I tore "down there." It's still causing some problems. It was almost like he was relieved when I told him about it. He was sympathetic about the pain I was in of course, but I felt like inwardly he was going "yay I don't have to have sex." He cites this as a reason he hasn't initiated but... really, it's fine as long as we're sufficiently lubed up.
I've started to feel a little bit ashamed about wanting sex so much. I have dreams that are so vivid they wake me up with intense orgasms and I feel like a nasty slut or something. I know it's society's conditioning that teaches us that women aren't supposed to want sex more than their husbands, but it just feels shitty anyway. My husband prides himself on his self-control in other regards (he's very thin and a small eater) so when I'm hungry and he's not, the last thing I want to do is eat something like a fat loser. The only time I get bold and cheeky enough to initiate sex and come on very strongly is when I've been drinking, but drinking is a turnoff for him (of course it is.)
I'm sad, and tired, and feeling at a loss here. I don't know what to do. I'm working out and losing as much weight as I can, as quickly as I can. I don't even care about how unhealthy it is because it at least feels like actively trying to fix the problem. Every time it comes up (we DO communicate) there are words of regret and promising to do better, and then poof, like 3 months have gone by without any sex, just like that, so it's hard for me to see that as a viable solution anymore.
Before, I poured a lot of my emotional energy into my best friend and our relationship, but she ghosted me in February. I'm still not over it. Needless to say this hasn't exactly made me feel any more loved or desirable. I've tried masturbating, but I am actually incapable of getting myself off manually (I've tried everything).
The other day I went to a Pure Romance party and wanted to cry when the consultant kept talking about how to deal with the insatiable appetites of husbands. I think I'd actually murder someone to have that problem.
I don't even know how to end this post. I guess I just needed a place to scream into a void.

2016.10.09 03:10 autotldr Sigourney Weaver Added As ‘The Defenders’ Villain As Whole Cast On-Stage At NY Comic-Con

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 46%.
The Oscar nominee was joined by the actual Defenders themselves Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist at the end of the Main Stage panel for the latter March 17, 2017 debuting series.
No details of Weaver's character nor a premiere date for The Defenders was announced but the NYC-based series is about to start filming in the next few weeks now that Iron First's first season wrapped this morning.
The Weaver announcement also saw Mike Colter, Krysten Ritter, Charlie Cox and Finn Jones together for the first time in public.
The quartet met up digitally earlier this week when Ritter crashed a Facebook Live session that her Jessica Jones Season 1 co-star was doing to promote the September 30 debuting Luke Cage.
Cox and Jones, who Colter had never met at all before, also dropped in on the online chat to the great delight of fans watching.
Luke Cage looks certain to get another season, especially after seemingly crashing the streaming service for a bit the day after its 13-episode first run launched - but nothing official has been said yet.

2016.04.25 17:03 RabidNinja64 Why the final season of Banshee is letting me down.

Now, I LOVE this show, more-so than Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, all the AAA shows that we've come to know, love and becoming enthralled in (Game of Thrones still keeping strong!), and Banshee is no exception, but with the final season kicking off April, I can't help but feel a tad disappointed in the sequence thus far (3 Episodes in).
Firstly, the fact that the show kicks off with Hood doing absolutely next to nothing to save Job over a course of 2 years, except becoming a Forest Hobo, with an almighty beard, I might add, doesn't seem like his character; The very first episode of Season 1, He tracked down Job just to find Carrie the instant he got out of prison, on the basis of Love. Job should be no different in a no-homo best-friend relation. I understand Hood's affliction with the aspect that their rescue raid in the previous season got Gordon killed, which affected Carrie dramatically, but she should've been his focus, considering he also lost Siobhan, there in the same boat, but nobody thought to add 2 and 2 together.
Secondly, Although Rebecca's death was a good curveball for the season, the fact that they downplayed it to a Demonic cult seems.....rushed and not thought through. There was no essence of a cult whatsoever prior to the 2-year jump, or even before. (Quick thought: It was hinted previously when Rebecca nearly got Kidnapped, which wasn't touched upon as a cult til now) What would've made more sense is using the Neo-Nazi construct that has been a constant presence since the beginning and ending it with them. Instead, we get a horny "possessed" couple found on PlentyofFish that enjoys reruns of Silence of The Lambs, naked bodies and playing in their victims blood, using their hearts as Air Hockey pucks while blasting Kids by MGMT.
Besides, Wasnt the final season meant to be played upon with Hood's identity being found out? Not playing Guess Who with Buffalo Bill?
Along with the investigation, I also want to point out another annoying aspect: JESSICA FUCKING JONES. UNACCEPTABLE. (EDIT: She's actually Eliza Dushku and NOT Krysten Ritter, so any points made past this point are moot, but i like how it's worded, so it's being kept)
She's already "Edgy" enough as it is in the weak-willed Daredevil adaptation but c'mon, keep that shit where it is, not have her investigative crime-fighting "skills" go cross-country. Though she plays 2 sides of a coin being a burnt out crack addict FBI agent, It's just....crap. It's the last season of 8 episodes, We don't need a new character that somehow pertains to the show's dark concept when the show is dark in itself with Proctor still looming his dark shadow over the town.
As for Carrie/Anna, it was a welcome sight to see her essentially switch between the two characters prior to this, but, with the hidden gun rack (On a motherfucking tumbler set!), Her Anastasia counterpart is locked away and only in use on the night shift, not effectively making her a superhero, but moreover giving her a reason to NOT be bored in the rest of the time of her becoming a better mother....oh wait!
Other than that, another 4 episodes, which, fingers crossed, pick up the essence of what Banshee used to be as a dark, gritty, action-packed and otherwise fun and humorous show, and not just give us a Hannibal-style ending.

2015.11.21 03:43 trpftw TRP, what is with this TV show "Jessica Jones"?

If you saw the first episode in this Netflix new TV show that's out tonight... uh... well I'm getting some really really really bad feminist vibes from this TV show.
Am I just imagining things? Am I just assuming themes that don't exist?
What the fuck is this shit? What did I waste my 40 minutes on? Why does this have 8.9 rating?
P.S.: Krysten Ritter is hot! It's not my fault for watching! It's not my fault! I can't control myself!

2015.09.11 16:53 baldeaglecomics1048 Jessica Jones - everything you need to know about the comic book character before the TV show premieres

This was originally posted on the Bald Eagle Comics blog
After an incredible season of Marvel’s Daredevil, we’re pumped for the next collaboration between Marvel and Netflix: Jessica Jones. Although never considered in the upper echelon of popularity, Jessica Jones, played by Krysten Ritter on the show, has an extensive history involving almost every major player in the Marvel Universe. So extensive, in fact, that it would take hours if not days for you to catch up on her fourteen-year history (first appearance was in Alias #1 in November, 2001). Since you probably don’t have that kind of time, we figured it best to give you a quick run-down of Jessica’s past in anticipation for the show’s release on November 20.
Jessica’s character is important in comic book history as it highlights the struggle to live a “normal” life as a superhero. Jessica’s first series, “Alias,” was published as R-rated (under Marvel’s MAX brand), allowing writer Brian Michael Bendis to explore the realism of humanity in a ways not possible in other comics. She is one of the very few main characters in both Marvel & DC Comics to become pregnant, suffer from PTSD, smoke cigarettes, and have an affair; her stories comprehensively detailing her experience with these and other real world issues.
Powers & Abilities
As the result of a car accident with a military convoy carrying radioactive chemicals, Jessica Campbell was put into a coma and awoke with strange, superhuman abilities. Flight was the first power Jessica discovered but she has never mastered the ability. Unless she’s emotionally charged or has been recently practicing, her flight patterns and speed are often erratic. It’s widely thought that Jessica could master this ability with practice, though many suspect she can never breach the speed of sound even with proper training. She chooses not to hone this ability because of airsickness. She also has superhuman strength, the limits of which have never been properly measured but she can hold her own against other super-strong heroes and villains, punch through solid metal, and throw large objects (cars, trucks, etc.) with little effort. Similar to most others with super strength, Jessica is extremely durable, proving immune to bullets, knives, electricity, explosions, and falls. She’s no where near invulnerable as many supers (both good and bad) have seriously injured her over the years, the prime example being severe injuries sustained after being punched by the Vision. If she is injured, her body heals extremely quickly. In addition to her superhuman powers, Jessica is an experienced detective, practiced journalist, and is skilled in hand-to-hand combat.
Character History
Before the accident that spawned Jessica’s powers, she was a classmate of Peter Parker at Midtown High School in New York. Her family was on their way to Disney World to use tickets gifted to Jessica’s father by his boss, Tony Stark, when their car was hit by a military convoy, immediately killing her family and exposing her to toxic chemicals. Jessica fell into a coma and woke up around the same time that the Fantastic Four encountered and defeated Galactus. After spending some time in an orphanage, Jessica was adopted by Mr. & Mrs. Jones, who thought it best to re-enroll her at Midtown. Jessica was ostracized by most of her classmates and bullied by Flash Thompson (yes, the same one that bullied our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man). Peter Parker tried befriending her but she mistook this as pity and ran away. This is when Jessica discovered she could fly…or fall as she crashed into the Hudson River before being saved by Thor.
Like I said, her history involves some big names.
After seeing Spider-Man take on Sandman, she decided she could use her powers for good, embracing the name Jewel. Soon after her first attempt at heroism, she was captured by Zebediah Killgrave -- the Purple Man -- Jessica’s primary adversary and the suspected main antagonist of the TV series. Killgrave kept her prisoner for eight months under pheromonic mind control. He sends her to attack Daredevil but Jessica accidentally attacked Scarlet Witch instead, whose reality-bending abilities ended Purple Man’s hold over Jessica. Shortly after, she was offered membership in the Avengers but she declined, opting to become an independent vigilante named Knightress.
After a shortlived tenure as Knightress (during which she first met Luke Cage), Jessica decided to start a detective agency called Alias Investigations, focusing on super human activity. She suffers from Post traumatic stress disorder as a result of her capture by Purple Man but after Luke Cage hires her for an investigation, they start an intimate relationship, which helps her cope with her PTSD. After being accused of killing one of her clients, Jessica’s lawyer, Matt Murdock (Daredevil), absolves her before connecting her with his friend Carol Danvers (Ms. now Captain Marvel). Subsequent cases include protecting Captain America’s identity, assisting S.H.I.E.L.D., and involvement in the Kree-Skrull War (a subject that I doubt the Marvel Extended Universe will ever tackle…but a boy can dream). Disapproving of Jessica’s developing relationship with Luke Cage, Carol Danvers persuades Jessica to date Scott Lang (Ant-Man) instead (their first date is interrupted by a fierce battle between Doc Octopus and Spider-Man / Human Torch). Jessica’s involvement in the superhero community in “Alias” is extensive and if you’re interested, I highly recommend reading the entire run of the series.
Jessica and Scott Lang’s relationship develops but she still sees Luke Cage occasionally and cannot decide which man she should settle down with. As supervillains always do, the Purple Man eventually returns. He tortures Jessica, convincing her that Scott is dead before telling her (forcefully through mind control) to kill the Avengers. It’s revealed, though, that Jean Gray (of X-Men fame) had provided Jessica with a psychic shield, allowing her to fight Killgrave’s control. Once freed, Jessica beats Killgrave to a pulp. She then reveals that she is pregnant with Luke Cage’s baby, breaking off her relationship with Scott (actually alive the entire time). Jessica decides to keep the baby and moves in with Luke to start “a new chapter.”
Many of the Marvel Universe’s most important recent events occurred during the time that Jessica was pregnant. As a new writer for the Daily Bugle, Jessica outs the Green Goblin as Norman Osborn, resulting in his arrest and acting as the catalyst for many power shifts in the Marvel Universe. Nick Fury’s Secret War against Latveria leads to Jessica being kidnapped by Hydra (she escapes). Her pregnancy is twisted out of reality (Marvel writers are crazy sometimes) by a run-in with Kang the Conqueror but reality is restored at the end of the incident. Basically, Jessica became a symbol for empowering women, proving that she could still save the world while pregnant. Jessica gives birth to a baby girl and names her Danielle Cage. Shortly after, Jessica and Luke are married and the wedding is (of course) officiated by Stan Lee.
All of this happened before 2006 but from the wedding until 2015, Jessica’s stories became more like most other heroes of the time, unfortunately losing some of the unique aspects that made her stand out. During Civil War, which permanently changed the landscape of Marvel comics, Jessica and Luke rebelled against the Superhuman Registration Act. After Luke compared the Act to slavery, Jessica took Danielle to safety in Canada while Luke joined Captain America’s Secret Avengers. When the war ended, Jessica returned to the U.S. and, despite Luke’s warnings of an impending alien invasion, she decided to register as a Superhuman. The Skrull Invasion results in Danielle being kidnapped but Luke rescues his daughter. This occurrence leads to Jessica re-donning her Jewel identity and eventually joining a Cage-led New Avengers. After various events that would take too many paragraphs to describe, Cage ends up as leader of the Mighty Avengers, which Jessica also joined before changing her superhero handle to Power Woman.
Predictions for the Show
Based on Jessica’s storied history, the Netflix Jessica Jones series can go in a few different directions. While it’s possible that the series will focus on her time as Jewel, it is far more likely that this storyline is short-lived, allowing the show to focus on Alias Investigations (as corroborated by the teaser trailer released shortly before this article was published). A show like this would be supremely interesting, combining the best parts of a procedural detective/cop show with the magic of the superhero world. This is also a prime opportunity for Marvel to drop some Easter eggs relating to Daredevil, the cinematic universe, and the other upcoming Netflix shows (dubbed the Defenders group). On top of a series regular role for Luke Cage (played by Mike Colter), I wouldn’t be surprised to see guest appearances by Daredevil / Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) or Kingpin / Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio). I would absolutely love an appearance by Captain America (Chris Evans), a subject of one of Jessica’s early cases in the comic, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the hero that saves her after her first botched landing, or Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Jessica’s one-time love interest, but Marvel Studios' recent shake-ups make this unlikely. Regardless, the Jessica Jones series promises to be a must-see for comic book fans and non-readers alike.

Questions Answers
Hey James! I want to have this picture on my debit card, but my bank is really anal and won't let me without your permission. Can I please have your permisson James? I think you have to make that face at the bank and see if they cave.
When did you think Dawson's Creek jumped the shark? When I had to convince Katie's character to wear a wire to snitch on her drug dealing dad because a molotov cocktail had been thrown through a window, I remember thinking, "What show am I on again?" But then we crossed back over and got back to more relationship stuff. Six head writers in six years will take you all over the map.
Why did the show go through so many leadership changes? Were there really constant worries about the show's creative direction or was it just typical network obsession with ratings and staying fresh to teens? It's tough to remember back that far… but I think it was more a function of our writers being in such high demand that they were eventually wooed with offers their do create their own shows, or just a matter of someone coming into an already established show with a very specific voice and everyone realizing a few steps down the road that it just wasn't quite the right fit.
Six head writers? Kevin was there for season 1 and 2, so it's 4 in 6 years. That's the only thing i find silly about the first two seasons. We had quite a bit of turnover in season 3 in the head writer dept.
What is your craziest fan stories? From nerve wracking fan mails to people following you around at night. ANYTHING. On the other note, happy belated birthday! Mine is just a day before yours! Hey there fellow Pisces! Craziest fan story… hmm… I remember a woman following me out of the grocery store, wiping dirt off my car, holding up her hand and saying "I will take this home to my children." That felt outside the realm of normal adult behavior to me...
"Kids, Mom's home! And boy do I have a surprise for you! Remember that half-eaten sandwich I stole from Joshua Jackson at a restaurant last week? Well wait till you hear what I've got now." HAHAHA! Right? I also remember driving and hearing screams, and it was because there was a Mom in a minivan full of girls chasing me through town. All the younger fan stories are sweet. It's the adults who get weird.
Mr. Van Der Beek, were you part of the creative process for Ke-$-ha's "Blow" music video ? or did she just call you and be like...lets have a laser fight with unicorns ? The director, Chris Marrs, got the job by pitching his vision to her, and that vision included me with a laser gun shooting unicorns who bled rainbows. I was in a period in my career where I stopped worrying about what people might think and just started saying yes to anything I hadn't done before that sounded like it might be fun.
Hi James, Thanks for doing this ama! Was it a lot of fun on the set of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back? And what was it like working with Kevin Smith? Kevin was super cool. Very thoughtful guy. Funny - that was one afternoon of my life, and yet people bring it up to me all the time. You never can tell what's going to stick...
I just finished marathoning "Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23 for the umpteenth time and I miss it so much. How much fun did you have playing a fictionalized version of yourself? Thanks! I loved doing that show, and getting to work with Nanatchka Khan and Krysten Ritter and everyone on that show. Playing a character with absolutely zero shame is really a lot of fun.
Arrigotto HEEEY! Hahaha! Krysten, Eric Andre and I still say that to each other...
How is "Friends With Better Lives" going to better than every other show out there? Well… it's the only show I'm currently in, so… need I say more?
I probably do. Copy that.
We have a lot of fun. It's a classic sitcom, shot in front of a live studio audience. And we have Brooklyn Decker.
How did you feel about getting referenced by Ving Rhames' character on The Goods? My lawyer called me up, very nervous, and told me they were asking my permission to sign off on the scene. I'd worked with Ving (on a pilot that hadn't been picked up) previous to that, and so when I heard how Ving had referenced me, I laughed my ass off. I signed off immediately.
I actually met you a few years back when you were filming "Salem Falls" in Fergus. My friend and I were just hanging out behind the bank when you were filming a scene behind the diner and you happened to go and sit like 10 feet behind us. We both freaked out a bit ( because, small town, biggest thing that had ever happened) and finally managed to introduce ourselves (got our picture taken with you and you signed my copy of Dawsons Creek). My question is do you ever get frustrated with people just coming up to you and asking for pictures/ autographs or disturbing the filming process? and What did you think of Fergus? We were all pretty excited to have you guys there, but I wondered how you felt about our town? edit welp, this is going to get buried. Not buried! As long as people are polite - and they usually are - I'm very happy to sign, take a pic, or just have a chat. When I'm with my kids I want to give them my full attention, and 99% of the time people totally get that. I know it's said all the time, but it's totally true - without fans, I don't get to do what I do. And I really do enjoy meeting people like you. It's part of the fun - getting an excuse to talk to people you won't otherwise get to meet. And Fergus was a sweet town. I have very pleasant memories of being there.
My brother calls you "Beeks". Are you okay with this? Is this encouraged? Haven't heard that one before. Has kind of a British vibe to it, no? James likey ;)
Are you actually friends, or even best friends, with anyone like Chloe from "Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23"? I'm very good friends with Krysten Ritter, who is definitely as much fun as Chloe, but minus the psychopathic tendencies.
I absolutely loved your role in Rules of Attraction as Sean Bateman. Don't suppose you've been in talks with Roger Avary over any future work with that role? Thank you! I think Roger is a genius. He and I have talked about collaborating again many times… one of these days well will.
a reunion? I didn't discover the show until recently, but it's the best thing since the original arrested development. What have the writers gone on to do now? Anything similar? Did any of them come with you to friend with better lives? Dave Hemingson, who developed Apt 23 with Natch and produced, wrote and directed on it, came aboard FWBL to produce and write with Dana Klein. The other writers are all gainfully employed elsewhere. They were picked off pretty quickly after that ship went down ;)
Any thoughts about making another dark movie? "Rules of Attraction" comes to mind. Have you met Brett Easton Ellis? What was he like? Brett is a friend, someone I like to check in with because we always keep it real. He's unafraid to offend, which makes him a very important voice in American culture, love him or hate him. But in person, I've actually found he can be as friendly as he is sharp.
Hey James, I really loved your appearance on Criminal Minds - great performance! How much fun was it stepping outside the usual bounds of the characters that you generally play? Thank you! That one was fun because it was a challenge, and it was completely supported by the writing. The more you broke those three characters down, the more sense they made… It was a tough shoot - very cold, and psychological demanding, but it did feel satisfying, in a way. We actors are weirdly masochistic like that, I guess.
Growing up near Wilmington, what were your experiences like filming there for Dawson's Creek? Do you ever get a chance to visit? Anytime people remember work you did that long ago, it's a compliment and something to be appreciated.
As someone who has seen Varsity Blues dozens of times and loves to drop random quotes from it, how often do you get bombarded with quotes from your roles? Does it annoy you or do you find it flattering? I love Wilmington. I grew up in Connecticut, but I call Wilmington my adopted home town. Looking forward to taking my family there some day…
What's your very best life advice? Life's way too short to not have empathy for other people.
How was the Eric Andre Show? Eric Andre is a brilliant crazy person. And I love him.
James, How was it working with Mewes and Smith in your cameo in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back? I always found the scenes with those two, you, and Jason Briggs to be hilarious. Also don't trust the b*** in apartment 23 was fantastic and should have never gotten cancelled. Mewes was awesome. Sweet dude.
What are some of the differences that you feel when you act in multi camera sitcom and single camera sitcom? How Zoe Lister-Jones acts in real life? She was hilarious in the #FWBL pilot episode. The best thing about multi-cam in front of the audience is that the audience tells you what works and what doesn't. That keeps the comedy honest. Zoe Lister-Jones is a juggernaut. She's an All-Star. Can't say enough about her. And she's just as funny in real life as she is on the show, just without so much of the tough, crispy shell. She's actually quite sweet.
I have to say, I adored you in "Don't Trust the B*** in Apt. 23" and I want, so much, for that show to come back. I appreciate hearing that. I still keep in touch with the cast and the writers of that show. I think it might have been a little to out there for the network we were on at the time. We joke around about doing a Christmas Special… the most demented Christmas special ever.
It'll kick you when you're down by showing you how great your life could be if you were a funny, interesting and highly attractive person living in a nice city. As a result we'll want more and more of it. Exactly. Our goal is to establish our superiority by demoralizing you, thereby making you dependent on us for any ounce of joy you hope to experience in life ;)
Een echte Nederlander zegt van der BEEK. A real American says VAN der Beek. An angry drunk person yells VAN DER BEEK!!! In college, the "Beek" seemed to be optional. My nickname there was "Van Der - and then any insult, name, adjective etc anyone felt like throwing at the end of it. So… pronounce it however you like. I pronounce it the American way.
