(and most of the audience ugh)

AMC was very generous in allowing Carey to be featured in 7 episodes of The 100, and Carey herself was equally generous in devoting her time and talent to returning to her role as Lexa. However, the way in which her character was utilized was very poor, and does not shine a positive light on the writer’s understanding of her character’s importance to one of their most vocal groups of supporters. She was well utilized in certain contexts, but the awful handling of her death deeply undermined the audience’s trust in the writers, and what a truly wonderful and unique character Lexa was in television. The writers chose to blame AMC and Carey for their shortcomings, and that in itself is almost as big of an insult as Lexa’s death.
  • Ugh seriously???
Play

Story time.

On Friday night (29 August), multiple cell phones went off during the show.

One went off during the Epilogue/Finale/whatever, conveniently right after Ramin finished “…and bring them graaaaaaaace” and right before the “Bring Him Home” reprise.

And sitting there in the chair, his character dying, Ramin kind of stopped, straightened up, and looked out into the general area of the audience that the ringtone was coming from (house right side of the orchestra???? I think????) and gave the perfect impression of an exasperated teacher whose class won’t stop talking.

It was simultaneously hilarious and the single most obnoxious thing I’ve ever experienced in a theater.

Seriously, people, turn off your fucking phones.

Taking 5: The Legend of Zelda Netflix Series

News just broke on the WSJ:

“The Legend of Zelda,” one of the most popular videogame series of all time, is in the works as a television show at Netflix.
The video streaming service is in the early stages of developing a live action series based on “Zelda,” about an ordinary boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda and save a fantasy world called Hyrule, said a person familiar with the matter. As it seeks writers to work on the show, Netflix is describing it as “Game of Thrones” for a family audience, this person said.

Ugh. Ok, look. I love Zelda. It’s my favorite video game franchise of all time, I will play every Zelda game that comes out, and it will be the reason why I buy a Wii U.

I also understand and can appreciate stories in different mediums. I’m OK with books turning into movies, or video games becoming mini series, childhood nostalgia be damned.

But here’s the thing, Legend of Zelda is a terrible candidate to be turned into a TV show. It’s an action, role playing game, with a lot of puzzle and problem solving. 2/3 of that description does not translate well to TV. It’s great when you’re in control of the character, but it’s going to be terrible to watch.

Zelda succeeds because you are in control of the discovery. And as you earn new weapons, they make the game more complex, and allow you to explore more. These feelings are exclusive to playing video games. And no phrasing “Game of Thrones for a family audience” is going to change that.

Link is a character that has no lines of dialogue in the game. He says nothing - out side of the occasional “YA!” while swinging his sword - so there is no character to build upon. He’s just a blank slate hero literally chosen by the gods.

He’s not a reluctant hero, he’s not a determined hero, he’s just a hero. The Hero. And he is whatever you, the player, brings with you. And that’s what bums me out. Not because I think Zelda is sacred, or I’m worried that it will ruin Zelda games and my childhood (it won’t) but I’m bummed because the source material only works when you are controlling the character.

Yes, it’s only in development. And hopefully it doesn’t ever leave development. But if we’re hearing about it, it’s probably closer to being real than Netflix or Nintendo want to admit.

what’s with all the hate on tiffany? I watched the performance tts did with exo (dj got us falling in love) and half of the comments were like “the performance is good, but tiffany is so annoying” and “tiffany ruined this performance with her constant woos and cheers, ugh” like???? i thought she looked like she had the most fun and really tried to make the audience as pumped as she was- why do some of you hate her for every little thing she does?

Most uncomfortable audience question
During the Q&A portion of the Mr. Robot panel, one well-meaning young woman stepped up to the microphone and, feeling her moment tangibly in her hands, proceeded to ask Rami Malek if he could teach her how to walk like an Egyptian. The room murmured uncomfortably, Malek seemed unable to fully process the joke at all, and the woman quickly asked her real question in an apparent attempt to erase the previous statement entirely. The pressure of the spotlight is real.

Vulture, Comic-con wrap up. 

Ugh, this actually happened?! This is why we can’t have nice things. >.<

overly-invested bryan/aaron post #567435:

okay but the best thing ever is this moment when jane kaczmarek is giving her speech about bryan for his walk of fame ceremony and aaron paul is visible behind them in the audience. and when she talks about their tv sons on MitM, right after she says how bryan “counselled them, he encouraged them, he coaxed them to stop goofing around when enough was enough” YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE BRYAN AND AARON BOTH FUCKING LOOK FOR EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME, CATCH THE OTHER’S EYE AND QUICKLY LOOK AWAY GRINNING LIKE FOOLS, TRYING NOT TO LAUGH BECAUSE HEY, DOESN’T THAT SOUND FAMILIAR, AND THEY’RE BOTH SO COMPLETELY SELF-AWARE OF HOW MUCH THEY LOVE EACH OTHER AND IT’S FUCKING HEARTWARMING OKAY
