Its kind of nice to get more evidence that shane is a demon, like i know i already believe it but seeing the exorcist video is a nice reminder. Also ryan is def the cutest asian ever like if you disagree THEN FIGHT ME
Natasha’s mission: To spy on Fury and the KGB agent he’s captured and been interrogating.
Clint’s mission: To mime out the entirety of the viral “octopus&puppy r 2 cute 4 words” video he found during lunch.
I’ve wanted an excuse to draw Catherine Tate’s ridiculous faces for ages, and finally did it with Clint. I didn’t even BEGIN to do Tate justice, but it was a barrel of fun, so have a Doctor Who reference~
Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was
And it’s not the last time either. You see it here
he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.
He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help
I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.
and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…
Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.
And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.
Static knows when to fight
but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand
and sure, he jokes around
but he also knows how important the work he does is
and he also knows what happens if he messes up
His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.
and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues
they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.
They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.
Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.
I don’t know if it actually is Static shock appreciation week officially, but it is for me
Favorite Musicals (1/5): Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812
“You empty and stupid, contented fellows, satisfied with your place! I’m different from you! I’m different from you! I still want to do something! … Or do you struggle, too? I pity you, I pity me, I pity you.”
new show idea: anthony bourdain and gordon ramsay travel the united states visiting hole-in-the-wall dives with bomb-ass food. bourdain picks out the restaurants and spends the first however-long of the episode talking up how fucking amazing this place is. when they get there it is always in a strip mall, or a shack in the woods, or a trailer under an overpass. ramsay is constantly scared and confused. bourdain is usually also scared and confused but pretends he is actually cool with whatever, in keeping with every other show he has ever done.
shots from every episode:
bourdain completely terrified by ramsay’s driving
bonus points if ramsay refuses to just drive a normal car like a normal fucking person
the look of horror and resignation on ramsay’s face when he sees where they’re going to be eating
ramsay taking in every possible health code violation
bourdain’s poorly-contained sadistic glee at the look on ramsay’s face
at least one scene that is more censor beeps than audible dialogue
ramsay’s vindication when bourdain ends up trapped in the bathroom shitting his guts out
bourdain’s complete lack of remorse and insistence that it was completely worth it
