It’s funny seeing the OKP “woke” trying to drop knowledge
Oct 10th 2020
255
      Word, your "woke" diss of Black women in reply #23 was wild.
Oct 11th 2020
256
           wild and prophetic
Oct 11th 2020
257
                Black male bashing from Black women producers was a prophecy?
Oct 11th 2020

280
Pretty much loved every episode except the last one
Oct 18th 2020
281
u dont see how a gay back male being the survivor is game changing?
Oct 18th 2020
282
No. I'm listening if you'd like to tell me though.
Oct 18th 2020
283
      well they're usually peripheral characters with no depth written
Oct 18th 2020
284
           I think you're actually describing how they disservice him as a gay
Oct 18th 2020
285
I'm still not sure why he killed the 2-spirited character
Oct 18th 2020
286
Yeah man, I thought there would be more to that as well.
Oct 19th 2020
289
      Yeah it seems like a flimsy subtext to introduce the character
Oct 19th 2020
300
I agree
Oct 19th 2020
288
So post #23 wasn’t completely off base?
Oct 19th 2020

23 is an attack on Black women producers in general. Don't lump me

I wanted to rewatch that segment anyway cause I missed what Baldwin was saying.

even though highlighting white racist horrors along with Lovecraft's monsters is the whole point, every time a cop was on screen I just got very tired. Like, "do I actually want to watch this?" tired.

But if we really doing this....
By "carry the weight", do you mean "always share the same opinions" ?

If so, why use her as a deflection in reply 33?

If we NOT doing this...
I was just highlighting how episode 3 showcased her acting skill. Ain't really gotta be a back n forth. Kinda understand tho if you're a little prickly after the heat you got fpr saying that and subsequently pointing the finger at your wife tho. It's all good. I wasn't attacking you.

>But if we really doing this....
>By "carry the weight", do you mean "always share the same
>opinions" ?

We do share the same opinions on like 99.9% of things that really matter...
For trivial shit...we generally agree...and if we don't I'm usually the one that more easily swayed....

>If so, why use her as a deflection in reply 33?
That was mainly because of the gender bias style leap that was made...that because I was a male, I was using the terminology of "girl".... so not really deflection...


>If we NOT doing this...
>I was just highlighting how episode 3 showcased her acting
>skill. Ain't really gotta be a back n forth. Kinda understand
>tho if you're a little prickly after the heat you got fpr
>saying that and subsequently pointing the finger at your wife
>tho. It's all good. I wasn't attacking you.

seen.
it's all good...
but yeah, we were both allayed of our concerns for her acting chops after watching Ep.1. We're solid fans of both her AND the show now. I legit think that the last thing we saw her act in was Eve's Bayou lol......hence the "girl" remark the wife made and the illegitimate expectation that she hadn't developed and improved as an actress over all these years lol...

One thing I didn't like was the scene with the live performance with Letitia showing up and jumping on stage. I deadass thought I was watching One Tree Hill or something at that point.

The intro was bananas but tied together the Lovecraft's Sci-Fi and racism into the world the story takes place in.

I heard and expected more weight given to the women in the story, given Misha Green, so that is a nice divergence from the book.

There's only one, young grasshoppers.
As you can see, I'm totally down to discuss the terrible depictions of Black men and women in cinema, but damn son... were you jealous or something when I did it? Did you start paying attention and realize I was onto something? Why were you at MY neck for critiquing our cinematic depictions?

Beyond all that, a word of unsolicited advice... this might go over better if you make the critique about the specific person you're dealing with rather than saying "black women" as a whole, because a black males were behind "dear white people" and "empire." This is less about who's producing, writing and directing than who's giving the green light to these specific depictions.

So again, you came at me for sideways for critiquing depictions of us in film, now you on here trying your hand at it (very terribly).

And why defend the white makers of GoT but come for Black women? Shit is suspect af.

And I don’t really consider it a “tap out”, more like I’m done talking to you about this and I don’t really care enough to continue going back and forth wasting keystrokes to entertain you so we can agree to disagree.

Which, IMO, season 3 was one of the worst broadcast of television...EVAH!!!

maybe that's why I'm meh...expecting the big letdown

But something just isn't pulling me in here

...the green book reference which has already been covered...

...terrifying monsters that have a convenient weakness...

...the savior with impeccable timing...

Or maybe because reality right now is way more terrifying

I guess it may be an issue of timing for this series

I'll probably binge when the season is over

...but I'm not that interested in this series for some reason...

i asked a buddy about it that loved it more than the first ep and he sent me a bunch of shit about occult theatrics and masonry

the only thing i gleaned off of the first watch was it was an interesting interpretation of gaslighting.

we don't know any more or any less that what the characters in the show know..i like that as a storytelling device...they are confused as fuck and so are we lol

We get to figure things out right alongside them..it puts you in the story, in a way.

understandably, everyone isn't into that

When things happen and I'm wondering what it is or if it'll be explained later. The only time is sucks is when there is no eventual explanation. Might be easier for some to digest when it's part of a movie or the entire season hits the platform at once and they don't have to wait for weeks to find out. I'm getting a little infected by the binge era tho, because I do find myself wishing I could just hit "next episode" when it goes off, but that's just because I'm so into it and wanna know what happens next.

But yes, "they are confused as fuck and so are we" makes for fun watching imo.

And I totally get being creative and liberal with the story and all that shit...just didn't think this episode was very good. The pacing was off, there were some portions of the book that were so well written and really didn't get explained well via this episode. I'm going to keep watching but...it was bad lol.

Again, you're simply comparing it to the book, and therefore your own expectations.

I have no expectations...i get to watch the show on its own merits, as a piece of writing and storytelling that's meant to be watched and not read.

so "bad" in relation to the book, and "bad" as a piece of television storytelling are two different things.

anyway, i do hope you can find a way to enjoy the show because it sounds like the book is good...i was thinking of reading it after, but maybe that's not a good idea lol

She understands all that. She just didn't like the show, and that's ok.

but an excellent and imaginative (sci-fi) writer.

The whole twist to LC is that these old stories have been re-written w/Black people as the protagonists or something like that to put a twist on it.

It's a lot to digest, but sometimes it takes that to keep me interested. Gonna be really interesting to see where things go after an episode packed with so much. Very much looking forward to the next episode. I am VERY entertained.
Seeing Black folks as protagonists in sci-fi hasn't been done enough, and I'm glad we're seeing it more lately. As is shown here and in Get Out, etc, that can add so many layers that haven't been explored yet.. and have often been ignored, frankly.
I have some interesting observations about this, but I'll wait until the end of the season to discuss.

Seeing us as portages in sci-fi is Peele's doing. He grew up like most of us with movies of the horror and sci-fi genre even if we weren't always in it or just castoffs.

These are the days of us being in horror etc and what happens when we hear a voice say "get out" as the comedians used to say..we re not simply getting in the car and driving off

Same. I want to see shit I've never seen before and this is that...so extremely creative. I love the use of Whitey on the Moon during THAT scene.. hears James Baldwin in ep. 1 and Gil Scott in ep. 2...fucking brilliant...

They gave us a whole movie, beginning, middle, end, with character development in ONE EPISODE. We're introduced to the house and all its characters within, and by the end of the episode, all of them and the house are gone. Amazing

and the twist of Uncle George reading the entire book he found and introducing the loophole in their shit was fucking beautiful..

I touched on some of them while talking about episode 3. Really wanna see where the story is going before I start digging in too heavy. I agree tho, this show is very deserving of analysis. So much cool stuff happening.

I looks like every episode is a self contained story with a connecting subplot, versus a 10 or so episode story arc.

I never read HP Lovecraft, so can someone tell me, are these actually taken from his stories, or is it just done in his style?

I'm not out cause honestly I don't have anything better to do with my Sundays but I definitely pay minimal attention at this point.

It's a shame because the subtle historical nods seem much more interesting than anything else going on with the story right now.

Of course I'm wondering if Atticus is gonna try to find Winthrop's pages and decode the language of Adam. Story line is fun and intriguing to me.The scene where they where she was chanting with the ghosts over Shirley Ceasar was ... oddly powerful. I love so much of the stuff they're doing here with the making sci-fi of our history and culture. Just such a joy to watch and appreciate US. During this episode, I found myself wondering if the show will continue on the strength of our love alone, because I can see white people hating that Black people are being shown as protagonsists and themselves as villains (exact opposte of what they tend to wanna see). I also came away wondering how any Black person into sci-fi could possibly NOT like this show. Then I come here lol. I remember having Game of Thrones recommended to me b/c my homie wanted to talk about it. It took me like 3 or 4 SEASONS before that shit was interesting to me. That first season was slow and boring af. This is us being done right in sci-fi so far. Brilliant stuff so far... not just some random BS thrown together but a very nicely developing storyline with intelligent Black people figuring their way through things. It was nice to see Letitia being the one figuring things out this episode. That's George, Atticus, and now Letitia who have all shown intelligence and not just been Black clutzes on screen on having to be saved by white people. You don't see this a lot when Black people share the screen with white people. I like that Atticus is always trying to protect Letitia. (uncle George stopped him when he was about to interfere with her family business, the policeman stopped him when he wanted to run to the car from the cabin, he offered to sleep in the basement and stand watch for her). Only minor knock there is a lot of his knowledge comes from white folk's military. Would've liked it if he was just a smart civilian who just read up. Also thought is was silly of his to not only try to shoot a damn sorcerer, but a white woman, BUT it did facilitate her line about killing white women, which is a line I can appreciate because with all the magic she has, she knows being a white woman is one of her most powerful tools. If that ain't some plain ol' reality for you.

Anyway, this episode was great imo. As the story builds, I'm just hoping this stays this good and stays on for many seasons. It's gonna have to us who support tho.

126. "all this!!! This episode was so fantastic..some thoughts:"
In response to Reply # 124


          

- seeing the housewarming party and the Black folks just enjoying and loving up on each other while the white folks was seething across the street was like fuck yes!

- my 22 year old son is watching with me (which is even more enjoyable as i explain historic references to him) and i commented how satisfying it was to see the "cross burning on the lawn" scene not turn out like it always does...with us being scared and falling back or leaving or moving...instead, BUSTING FUCKING WINDOWS SON...then Hyp pulls up with the trunk open, gets the gats and bats and leaves..that shit was so badass and just so fucking satisfying (even tho its fantasy)

-the love scene w/the twist that she was a virgin...like we knew they would crush eventually but the awkwardness of how and why...and the way he softened when she told him...i'm enjoying their journey

- seeing Black spirituality centered like that with the priestess...like wow. that was incredibly powerful imagery...we never get to see that

- i commented to my son that the "monsters" and the white people always show up at the same time LOL...i love that the show is creating this obvious parallel

Was by any means necessary the importance of black home ownership. How brave must folks have been to integrate back then?

Exactly. This is a Black woman in the 50's who's bought a 5(?) bedroom home on her own. She's not just up and leaving it.

Plus like I said above, Black people have documented living in haunted in THIS millennium. Most "Black folks wouldn't" and "Black folks don't" stuff is nothing more than jokes at this point. Reality says different.

Considerably better than episode #2, which was just a fairly bad episode of TV.

But this one worked well. Certainly the atmosphere and the story. CGI was a bit cheesy, but it didn't take me out of it or anything.

to discovering the elevator to the Chicago house after they drove all the way to Boston and almost died crossing that dissolving plank. okay.

In response to Reply # 130


          

despite the fact that Letitia had just said the dead body floating in the water looked like one of her neighbors who disappeared, so finding the elevator kinda made sense to them after that. I thought their level of surprise fit the context.
And aside from the shocked look on Letitia's face when the elevator appeared, she said Epstein (previous owner of the house) must have been chasing Titus' pages too.

I should have rewatched before I typed. I was half watching, half doing something else during this ep.

But it still felt like too quick a turnaround.

134. "Episode 4 is definitely an adventure"
In response to Reply # 0


          

The episode builds nicely. By the end, there's so much to keep you anticipating the next part of the story.

First off, the little boy at the library who wanted them to be quiet was reading "Journey To The Center of the Earth" and when they went into the ground at the museum, Atticus said "This is some Journey To The Center of The Earth shit." I've never read that book or seen the movie, but I know that in the book, the the gang have to get out of the volcano within 48 hrs due to the temperature rising. Here, they have 3 hrs because the tide is rising. There could have been more references to it all throughout the episode for all I know.

The idea of the Orrery is interesting. Especially since the light from the moon opened the vault. That's reminiscent of how the moon always shine on the pyraminds a certain way, as they're built to exactly correspond to certain celestial bodies. Gonna be interesting to see what Hippolyta does with that. Also gonna be interesting to see where she's going and what she runs into on the way. Looks like she's going to become a major player in the story given what she's got going on AND her past and the naming of the constellation.

I love how they portray Atticus and Letitia's relationship. They "fight like a married couple" as the old saying goes, but they love the hell out of each other. There's a good balance of familiarity arguing and expressions of love between them.

I also like the fact that the priestess' spell even worked on Christina. Shout out to negro spirituality.

Not sure what Montrose's deal is. This nigga done burned the book and killed Two Spirit. Seems like he's either working for the Braithwaites, spelled by them, an incarnation of another spirit, or just out for himself. Hard to believe he's really just trying to protect him family like he claimed. Could be tho... who knows. Can't wait to find out.

Speaking of Two Spirit, the visual of her coming to life from a skeleton was cool af. Also, maybe she couldn't trust Atticus' spirit because Montrose was standing beside him.

Ruby's story is just plain ol' real shit with her not applying and then going in the store to see the first Black woman working there. Sometimes you just gotta try. I'm not sure if Samuel licking her blood has any significance, but I'd guess it does. Should've known they'd somehow throw in a white man sleeping with a Black woman tho. Almost seems mandatory for shows to get on TV now. The musical backdrops suggests he spelled her, but still, they gotta find a way to get it in there.

That should say "I know in the movie". Could be the book too idk. I just read a brief summary of the movie after this episode because of the references.

She drives up to the house, disappears, then he immediately comes out to beat up the dudes (have we ever seen them in a scene together?)

She knows who Leti's sister is...and that she couldn't get close to her any other way than by being a man that seduces her

so many times we are reminded that she can't be in the "club" because she's a woman...doesnt it make sense that she'd have a male form so she could access certain things?

And yes, the black spirituality on display warms my heart so much

They never appear in the same scene. The one you mention where the cops are following her, they literally show her walk around the corner and then he appears out of nowhere from around the same corner right after she disappears. Good catch.

pretty much!

I'm enjoying the little off beat references and nods to peripheral characters that appear in the story like Diana's friend Bobo (Emmitt Till). And like James Baldwin as a tenant in Leti's house.

First it opens with his lover saying, what was it? "was it the whites or the niggers?"

like...uh, what?


Then when they actually started getting hot and heavy, I died laughing at amount of spit he managed to produce off the rip

It wasn't just *spitoo* it was...a lot of spit, like a lot of lot of spit.


and then...the weird biting Montrose was doing.

162. "Episode 5 had some interesting stuff going on. Nice effects."
In response to Reply # 0


          

I was thinking I might not like Ruby's story about turning white, but I liked the way they put it together. I laughed especially hard when she told ol girl "white folks got some shiiiiit" as the white woman. Her explaining how she felt as a white woman was also well-done. I was glad that she ultimately decided she was unhappy being white as well. Her stabbing dude with the heel was hilarious.

So they confirmed that Montrose is gay or at least not completely straight. I was just waiting for them to tell me why he killed Two-Spirit. That's all I wanna know from him right now. Maybe all they showed here is leading up to that in some way.

I liked the effects and how it looked when they turned into different appearances. Well-done.

Damali called it with Christina. Probably right about the time travel too.

Some unanswered questions in this one. The symbol on the rock and the pages and what he'd decoded when he came up with D-I-E. Dunno if I need to watch again or just wait and see. Watched this one with company so I wasn't attentive as usual.

while in white-body, though the choice to have her character act that way rang true.

i, personally, imagine that it would be more fun to be shit to the white subordinates if I'm now the assistant manager. but of course "Hillary" is still going to be obsessed with comparing and competing and feeling negatively towards the Black woman that beat her out.

on another note, i'm not a really into body horror, but i was okay with this episode. i was really scared for ruby anytime she she had a metamorphosis outside of the mansion though. what would happen if she was discovered? will she ever use Hillary again?

loved the inclusion over Ntozake Shange's "For Colored Girls" in this ep as well.

of course cuz that's the only world of interaction she knows...it likely felt foreign to talk to her white female subordinates at all, let alone actually be tough on them...she barely managed to tell them to get back to work LOL

but then when she found out the girl didn't even have all the crazy qualifications Ruby would think you'd need to get a job at a white store, she went bad. because it made her feel like shit about herself that sometimes it really is just down to luck.

This is why the show is great. These nuances fi thats what you call them..or these emotions/actions that are actually the real heart of that series..the spooky shit is just the crust.

The fact that it is presenting such a real take on the black experience is great.

But fuck Lovecraft. His name should be removed the way we remove confederate statues. I gave it some time to deal with this elephant in the room but it won't or if it does I do not approve of the approach. People are using this to say shit like you should check out Lovecraft's stories. Fuck Lovecraft's stories. Fuck Lovecraft with the heel in the ass like last nights ep. This man needs to be disgraced.

Fine production under any other name, but I can't let this one go. It's actually something I've been vexed at for years because Lovecraft is in the public domain and white people love using that shit. In fact isn't this based on a book by one.

Sorry, just needed to put this out there.

Like the racism in the show is expressing what Lovecraft was, and the show overall as a way of shitting on him and his works?

There was just one scene where they address his racism head on, and more than likely most people forgot it.

186. "They should have named the dept store guy Lovecraft "
In response to Reply # 184


  

          

But even that wouldn't have been enough. It is way too understated how his racism is at the core of what's called lovecraftian horror. That dehumanizing of people to monsters is based explicitly on that racism. The whole genre is tainted by his world view and this just isn't doing anything to address that.

The scene I'm talking about was one in the first ep where tic picks up one of his books and says that fucking racist or something.

Not enough.

192. "You are missing the point "
In response to Reply # 188


  

          

1) it is presenting racism in America and wrapping Lovecraftian horror around it. That is all that one can say it's doing from a surface look. You can go deeper than that and arrive at other things, but on the surface it's just that.

2) Most people only see things at a surface level. Kudos to okp for being woke, but most people surface.

3) A tounge in cheek mocking of Lovecraft's racism is not dealing with the effects of that racism. Neither is a big neon sign. And my point is that the effects of his racism in particular are the deep seeded shit that has been pervasive in the white consciousness for over a hundred years and literally a part of why we're still dealing with this shit today.

4) If a show cannot deal with that head on then perhaps it's not the show we need on this topic.

Again I think the show on its own is fine, but as a commentary on Lovecraft it's nowhere near enough.

In response to Reply # 193


  

          

I'd apologize for the all caps but if you're just going to ignore everything I type. Again perfectly fine take on racism in America, a refreshing portrayal of our people at that time, tainted by its association with Lovecraft and not doing ENOUGH to address the issues I'm raising.

If you disagree with that please provide me with the examples that show so. Because just saying it's fine isn't changing my opinion. Challenge my view, I'd welcome it.

Please detail how. But just saying it's "for me" is not enough. I get liking the show. But if you want to like the show and move on then ignore my post all together. But both of you are just trying to shut it down without even engaging with the criticism. That's what irks me.

I've posted enough bricks in okp to be OK being ignored.

WTF?? You think the show is presenting American systemic racism, Im saying the stories and racism in it represents Lovecrafts racism. You think mentioning Lovecrafts racism in the first episode is all there is to state how he was a racist. I say that was the jump off in showing his racist views in the following eps as well as the horror factors from him in the eps. One WOULD think LC is a telling of how America has a racist past (duh..and too easy) but I think that initial announcing he was a racist is intertwined in the stories, deeper than what's presented at face value.

YOU DONT AGREE WITH THAT! IM NOT LEGS ETC WHOS GONNA GO BACK AND FORTH WITH BS CLOGGING UP A THREAD.

i just don't think your criticisms hold water..and i don't need to satisfy you by responding to them point by point.

you're posting; i'm posting. neither of us can stop the other..so crying that someone is trying to silence or stifle you is some bullshit and you know it

i think you're wrong, you think you're right. end of story (again)

i'm still challenging you to write something better. they are telling the story the way they want to tell it. don't watch it then

of Lovecraft and honestly still haven't even bothered to look him up.
But I could see how someone would be exposed to him via this show and not make the connection that the show might actually be trying to highlight the problems with his works.....

And that has nothing to do with profitability, as I think he may be public domain by now. If not than it's an even bigger issue.

In response to Reply # 203


  

          

I've been on a history kick and learning about the brutal bombing of Korea and Japan (in WWll)

bombing in this case specifically meaning incendiary bombing - aka napalm.

that stuff is no joke. it will bring an enemy to their knees.

essentially, the US does not fucking play. during the bombing of Tokyo during operation meetinghouse, the US in a single night killed 80-100,00 people and destroyed a 16 by 16 mile section of the city. For reference, Manhattan is 13 miles long and 2.5 miles wide.

80,000 people - gone in a single night and it's not instant death, its a fucked up, FUCKED UP way to die.

ugh.

That was one city in Japan. The US saw the effects of that, looked at Korea and said "aight, bet"


So while watching last night I was thinking...this aint a normal war with guns and bombs, they were really seriously trying to dominate.

My perception of America at war has always been the middle east and urban warfare. Use of weapons of mass destruction is pretty much damn near seemingly impossible to a person like myself.

218. "I loved it...especially the centering of Korean culture and sprituality"
In response to Reply # 203


          

along with the history lessons abound...

it was definitely shocking seeing Tic in this light..so callously taking a life to the point where he didn't even recognize the woman right beside her...

but her 'monster' speech was so real...all humans have the same capacity to do monstrous things...how could she, who took 99 lives, judge him for the one she saw him take? who is the worse monster?

also, people online are acting like Tic lied when he told Leti that he wasn't sure what he had w/Ji...i mean he was a virgin and he was serving at war and she turned out to be a whole demon..its fair to say he was a bit confused about it all lol

also, i loved the scene with the Korean American soldier acknowledging the racism he and Tic face at home, and also him in Korea...I had just watched Da Five Bloods last week and it reminded me of that

In response to Reply # 0


          

It was also entertaining, but I'm glad the message at the end of episode 5 makes sense now. We also know fully who this Korean woman was who's appeared before. I'm usually not a fan of flashback episodes to explain what's been omitted, but this show does a great job with storytelling imo. With so much going on and the way the story's being told, this episode had me locked in. I was wondering if Atticus was so special that her tails wouldn't be able to kill him and would just transfer to power to him... but it turns out she just didn't wanna kill him. At the same time tho, I'm still kinda wondering if that did transfer some power to him. I thought him being a virgin was kind of a nice inclusion. I like that he gets portrayed as both strong and vulnerable, intelligent... even innocent at times. Black males don't often get this kind of range in our depictions.

But his memories showed him in bed with a woman. Was that his past or his future? BTW, she wasn't Leti.

..which is why she eventually warned him that she saw his death.

She explained during convo with her mother, that she was capable of not only feeding on the soul of her chosen victims, but also seeing their past, present, & future.

That is the mythology of the Kumiho.

213. "Feeling pretty cool on Tic after watching him torture and execute"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

those women. Yes, of course he was in a war. But until this ep, I didn't think too hard about what specifically he would have been doing. Often the way war stuff is depicted, it's just a bunch shooting at nameless, faceless enemies. Not shooting a girl in her forehead without hesitation or ripping another's teeth out. I'm not saying it was a bad choice to complicate our "hero" in this way, but it did affect how I feel about him.

I enjoyed being introduced to Ji-Ah/Fumiho's character and was far more interested in the arc of the relationship between her and her mother than I was in the Tic romance. The prude in me was a bit overwhelmed there.

The tentacles coming out the eyes were a lot.

i guess because i can never shake her from the Real World because im always surprised she is a pretty good actress.

i actually thought Tic was going to kill her too. and the phone calls he was getting all along were just him imagining them.

In response to Reply # 215


  

          

the whole time they've been building up what happened "over there".

so i figured when her tails would come out, that he'd kill her in self-defense. and the phone calls were him having a guilt delusion about what he did over there

In response to Reply # 222


  

          

Character growth and moving the overall arc along. I could see this being another "one & done" like Watchmen because I don't want any of these plot points dragged into another season just because they ran out of runway.

-You gotta stop life and talk for hours about how you and someone had the same fucking dream, bro.

-I hope the baby/pregnancy is kept on the low so it doesn't become some kind of prophetic sacrifice.

-I hate they're not in a time period where Tic and Montrose can work out their shit and accept each other, but they have a lifetime's worth of ruining that before the f-bomb dropped.

-People with a sudden helpful spirit bother me, IRL and in media. I don't know if Ruby has a history of trying to babysit neighborhood kids.

every speech, every interaction...the naming of self, the choosing of life, the power, the freedom, the warrior, the acknowledgement of how we shrink ourselves....

All the way down to the lady on the bike...that was Bessie Stringfield...the first Black woman to drive across America solo on a motorcyle...AND she was a WW2 vet

its a cliche at this point, but this show really truly is everything.

227. "I thought episode 7 was fun"
In response to Reply # 0


          

"I AM' being a Black woman with a huge afro was just plain fantastic.
My favorite thing about the episode.

Hippolyta's entire journey of self-discovery was enjoyable from realizing she was mad at herself for allowing white folks to make her feel small to George painfully admitting that he allowed her to shrink for his sake. I'm interested in what's gonna come of her when she returns to the show's time period now. I never watch previews for the next week, so it'll be fun to find out.
I was confused when they played Lady Marmalade until I realized they were kinda playing that as the score and not the piece they were performing to. LM came about 20 or 30 yrs after that period. What's interesting the B-side was "Space Children" which very much fits Hippolyta's journey this episode.

In a weird way, I'm kinda glad there's the scene where Tic and Leti see Montrose's boyfriend leaving. It was just real... especially for the time period. Then we have Tic realizing Montrose beating him as a child was about Montrose's own insecurity and self unacceptance. And he's rightfully pissed off. Poor Leti just doesn't know WHAT to say, so she tries to introduce some good news.

Things could get really messy here if Ruby tells Christina about the orrery, since she was peeking in while Leti was on the phone.

Other than that, I hope Tic finds the book, and Ruby was looking fine AF when Hippolyta dropped Diana off lol.

This was a perfect blend of source material and expansion into the territory I was expecting from Misha Green.

Had me shook for real. Those girls gave me chills. They were played so wonderfully. I sat up and was glued to the t.v. I was scared, without any jump scene sequences, every time they were on screen.
Of course, the very beginning of this episode had me super emotional dealing with the death of 'Bobo'.
One of my favorite episodes.

Love, love, love this show. It gets everything right for me, EXCEPT the sound tracking. I absolutely LOATHE period pieces that play contemporary music. Them playing Banarama's "Cruel Summer" at the beginning of the episode and connected to the scene of the young boy's death was BLASPHEMY.

239. "Yeesh. ep 8 was kind of the worst one. "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

the writing was off. each episode so far has connected points-to-points, episode to episode. The first 30 minutes my wife and I kept having to pause it to say "so wait a second...."

-the Emmet Till story felt a bit tacked on. Watchmen used Tulsa as a central idea that tied into everything. The Emmet angle...just like, out of nowhere. When the kid was alive and hanging out with Diane...did he even have lines? No build up, no connection to the character, no clues, no points to watch, just...AIGHT SO, EMMET TILL RIGHT?

-The scene with the cops and Diana felt a bit heavy handed when she said "I can't breathe", like, show, don't tell. We're already in a context of racism, white supremacy and police brutality, adding that is like saying "get it?" after a punchline. We already have the context.

-Tick and Letti just leaving Ji-Ah's ass in the dining room. Like, where the fuck is Ji-Ah? She just drops some earth shattering evidence on everything and instead of taking a step back to work it all out....

-Tick and Letti running through the house arguing, and then out of the blue Tick is like "IMMA BUST SOME SPELLS ON THESE HOS"

-No really, is Ji-Ah still at the dinning room table like "...these people ain't shit for leaving my nine tail ass right here with no water on this hot ass day"

-Tick just straight up saying "fuck that magic woman in particular" when it came to Ji-Ah. No "hey, HOW THE FUCK DID YOU FIGURE OUT WHERE THE FUCK WE ARE, WHAT THE FUCK SHOULD WE BE DOING, YOU TELL LETTI ABOUT ME BEING A WAR CRIMINAL?!"

-Tick and Montrose suddenly cool with each other and sitting on the curb drinking as if Tick didn't just have his whole world rocked

-Hold up, Ji-Ah if she saw it all in Ticks life, INCLUDING all the wizard shit, wouldn't she go "aight, I got 9 tails and I suck the souls out of men...just what the fuck even all is this shit?"

-The wizard cop having his whole ass eaten by the beast like...you ain't got magic to protect ya neck dude?

In response to Reply # 239


  

          

That make the Emmet Till B-story seemed more forced, but I'll excuse it.

Given that it's set in Chicago, characters seem to get around the country Games of Thrones style...long journeys, when it's convenient to the plot, or instantaneous.

Who died while visiting down South. The character was an easter egg in an earlier episode involving the Ouija board.

I don't understand.

The board replied "no". Either that was the first or second episode.

I like the show, but someone on Twitter said alot of it feels like a book report. It reminds me of She's Gotta Have It (especially the 2nd season) where it's clear that the writers have a long list of Black History trivia and fun facts they want to write into the show. There's alot of Presentism in the show as well. I was legit expecting Tic to say "hands up, don't shoot" in the scene near the end.

My biggest problem here was that they opened the episode with it, and I think that's what made it feel SO out-of-nowhere. You hanging on for a week, wondering what happens with the portal and all, and then.... EMMETT TILL! It was just jarring, but I didn't mind its inclusion at all.

I gotta disagree here. People actually say they can't breathe when they can't breathe. Plus with this being the 50s, I like the statement that this is just American history.

A lot of this seems to be asking to show to focus on somewhat unnecessary parts of the story instead of feeding you the meat of the story (which is understandable to some degree, but maybe also try to understand that they're breaking ground here and may not want to slow things down to much)... especially this.



>-Tick and Montrose suddenly cool with each other and sitting

>world rocked


This didn't bother me. I suppose they could've shown them working all that out, but I appreciate them leaving that assumed for the sake of moving the story along and keeping it exciting. Families go through shit and move on. At least that's been my experience. I don't necessarily need to be bored with the details of how they made peace here. Knowing that they did is enough for me.


>-Hold up, Ji-Ah if she saw it all in Ticks life, INCLUDING all
>the wizard shit, wouldn't she go "aight, I got 9 tails and I

I don't understand what you're saying here.

Well he had to recite an incantation to put the spell on Diana. The monster kinda ripped his throat and esophagus out lol.

Whew it’s some draining personalities on this website, even in a post like this.

prototype

stand ur ground, believe in urself,
believe in love, prepare urself for love, remove the negativity from ur life, and accept the love u kno u deserve

i'm done with this post

it adds no value to watching the show...everybody jockeying to show how knowledgeable on film/tv writing and directing they are and how astutely discerning they are WHILE watching it every week...smh

Mischa is doing the shit HER WAY and i'm here for it AND enjoying it...everything don't have to be whatever y'all consider to be perfect. I'm not watching the show to pick it apart. i watch TV to fucking enjoy it and support BLACK CREATORS who couldn't even get a fucking LIGHT GREEN light on ANYTHING centering Black people less than a decade ago

yes, i'm annoyed. and yes, i'm logging off. and no I don't give a fuck what the rest of y'all reading think of what I just typed.

i said what the fuck i said, like i ALWAYS do.

274. "for me criticism IS enjoying the show. "

thinking about whats between the cracks is where the insights are found.

thinking about why I'm thinking about a certain aspect or concept from the show is what makes me appreciate the art.

Do tell how it came true since your post.
This should be intereting.
