#why can’t this be the whole show #and sansa can join their book club (x)

I haven’t seen this episode yet and for a second I genuinely thought it was a gifset with the actual dialogue replaced with Monty Python.

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder if Davos sticks around more for Shireen than for Stannis.

A gem from the article:

amarielah:

Kids aren’t coming to school with Dostoesvsky in their hands, saying, “Mr. Nate, every decision we make, from naïve childhood to impatient youth to life as an emotionally-and-physically-ruined adult with power, effects everything else, with grave consequences, and it all seems so exciting for so much of your life until one day your son is screaming at you to stop electrocuting him, and all you can feel is an endless hate, and even then you can redeem yourself, because you have a choice.”

They say, “Draw me General Grievous,” and I say, “I don’t know what General Grievous looks like.”

These are five-year-old kindergartners he’s talking about, btw.

You show me a five year old who gets Dostoevsky and I’m going to start checking their scalp for the mark of the beast.

this is important and more people need to understand this

This. This. I have no idea what the context here is, but this.

Twin Peaks: still holdin’ up after all these years.

For those who don’t know, the actress is Peggy Lipton, Rashida Jones’s mom. Also a Jew. This show is great. It’s hard to understate how influential it is. The character of Norma Jennings is one of the nicest and most decent people in the history of television (then again the same can be said of most of the “good” people on Twin Peaks), so when she gets serious, people listen.

What the “Clone Wars” Stuff Does for Star Wars’ Narrative Structure

amarielah:

the-tusk-blog:

"So is it possible George Lucas knows what he’s doing?"

Wow. Just…wow.

Haven’t read the article, but if it’s just based on the pilot movie than it’s worthless. I’m about half way into the first season and just the secret weapon and R2 rescue arcs did a lot more for the characterization and likability of Anakin Skywalker than Episodes II and III combined. Rather than being simply whiny and irrational, Anakin has a philosophy of principled disobedience that is occasionally overwhelmed by his anger. It’s a more nuanced characterization that gives him some real depth and humanity. Now when I watch Episode III again, I imagine I will feel a much greater sense of tragedy and loss. So based on just that alone, I think The Clone Wars is worth it.

J.M. Dematteis on Kraven’s last Hunt

angryfantasyfan:

And by the time I got home, I realized what a stroke of good fortune this was: I now had another chance, probably my last chance, to take a crack at this “back from the grave” idea. More important: I discovered, as I worked away on the proposal, that Spider-man-recently married to Mary Jane-was a far better choice than either Wonder Man or Batman. Peter Parker is perhaps the most emotionally and psychologically authentic protagonist in any super-hero universe. Underneath that mask, he’s as confused, as flawed, as touchingly human as the people who read-and write-about him: the quintessential Everyman. And that Everyman’s love for his new wife, for the new life they were building together, was the emotional fuel that ignited the story. It was Mary Jane’s presence, her heart and soul, that reached down into the deeps of Peter’s heart and soul, forcing him up out of that coffin, out of the grave, into the light.

And that’s how Kraven’s Last Hunt was born.
                                                                                     -J.M. Dematteis   

Perhaps the best Spider-Man story ever… The writer said the marriage was the necessary core of it… 

Beware The Batman Will Return In The Most Embarrassing Way Possible

Don’t think this one’s coming back. Does that mean we can go back to DCAU Batman? Bruce Timm?

I actually kind of liked what little I saw of this show, but DCAU Batman will always be THE Batman to me. No pun intended.
