sholio: Cisco from The Flash with hand out (Flash-Cisco)
I am just poking my head up from massive, massive book edits. Even proofreading a 130K book takes forever. WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF. It should be out early next week, though.

So, a catchup post on various recent TV-related stuff.

First of all, a vid rec: Fringe - Walter - 1985 by [personal profile] jmtorres. I never, ever would've thought of using 1985 for Walter, but it's such a hilarious and perfect song choice for him. Now I have Fringe feels.

This week's Flash: was certainly an episode of TV that happened. Spoilers )

This week's Agents of SHIELD: continues to be my favorite thing on TV right now, and I STILL can't believe I'm saying that about THIS SHOW. Spoilers )

This week's Supergirl: made me have conflicted thoughts about my least favorite character(s). Spoilers )

I'm pleasantly surprised at how much I like the new Ales Kot/Marco Rudy Winter Soldier comic. I was kinda expecting to dislike it, or at least to be unhappy with the new direction of the character, and instead I love it and I'm really looking forward to the next issue. I think partly this is because it has a nice indy vibe -- the overall feel of the comic is much more like an indy sci-fi comic than a superhero comic; some of the reviews compared it to Heavy Metal which I think is also accurate -- but also, I was honestly expecting wall-to-wall angst, darkness and manpain, and instead it's entertaining and fun and even funny at times, with gorgeous (if confusing) art. I'm not familiar with Daisy Johnson as a character, but I like her a lot so far, and her dynamic with Bucky is a lot of fun.

Also, the comic pretty much had me when Spoilers, I guess )

My only real complaint is that I wish the art wasn't so hard to follow -- although I love the actual look of it. And it's complex enough that you have to go back and reread pages to pick up details you missed the first time, which is always a plus for me.

But yeah, ever since this was announced I've been thinking it was going to be very much not my cup of tea, and instead it very much is, so I'm really happy about that. (And now I need to track down some of the other comics with Daisy in them. THE COMICS RABBIT HOLE, IT JUST KEEPS GOING DOWN.)

In completely other news, Tim DeKay was cast on Agents of SHIELD ... playing Grant Ward's brother. *cries* Among other things, it means that the TDK tag on Tumblr is now full of AoS stuff from the Grant Ward side of the fandom, which I had been doing so well at avoiding. Thanks a bunch, casting gods.
