An essay I wrote on antagonists a long time ago is posted on the SmartPop website until Monday; it’s from the Glee anthology and talks about Sue Sylvester as a great classic antag: “You Think This Is Hard? Try Being An Antagonist. That’s Hard: Why Sue Sylvester Is Essential to Glee.”
And it’s another save-the-world-and-break-your-heart two-parter. Another transition, keeping the show fluid. Plus more Jackie and Micky, always a good thing.
Great mystery, horses in space, beautiful puppets, famous people in history, the Doctor gets kissed again, and one of the best entrances EVER. Definitely in the Top Five of Great Who Episodes.
June 15th is National Hollerin’ Day.
What are you hollerin’ about this week?
Okay, I haven’t watched this yet because I’m swamped here, but it’s only available until the end of today and by the time I do watch it, it’ll be too late to tell you all about it. I’ll be back later to see it and comment, but in the meantime, here’s Wonder Woman (with Stanley Tucci in the intro, too). Let me know what you think. Of Wonder Woman, not Stanley. Stanley rocks always.
ETA: Great documentary, including a lot of interesting stuff about women heroines in general. I hadn’t noticed that “year all the strong women died,” but I loved what they said about Buffy coming back from the dead and empowering all the slayers. I’d never seen that as a political statement in context with time. I forgive Joss the women of Firefly.
