I am watching ‘the americans’, and they are eating black caviar with beer and by dipping tortilla chips into it the middle of dc suburbs, and someone stop this.

the show is good, but entirely void and erased of any russian discourse (which I hoped for for some reason, and which could be introduced between sleeping identities, rezidentura, and even that goddamn caviar).

the show neglects the value of detail, focusing on its very nice soap opera narrative and causal tensions of kgb agent couple. but you cannot make a good show about the soviets in any capacity if you use an american lens and narrative techniques - byt, come on.

Surprised more people aren’t freaking out over Man From U.N.C.L.E.
  • Super camp and fun
  • Beautiful 60s fashion
  • Everyone’s so pretty
  • All the leads have so much chemistry it’s the perfect OT3
  • Women who are allowed to be smart, evil, silly, sweet, secretive…
  • Handles a mentally ill character from their perspective and (imo) in a very empathetic manner
  • Action and fighting, but minimally triggering (there is a war criminal who receives his just deserts, I forgave it, but obvi it differs)
  • The woman and the womanizer have a brother/sister type relationship that’s snarky and not gross at all
  • The hypersexual characters aren’t pressured to change (or is changed by the power of love, which is a trope that always bothered me)
  • A cinnamon bun antihero that rivals Zuko
  • Seriously, the two guys are so queer coded and don’t shy away from making innuendos to each other
  • I was in a theater full of old people laughing my ass off because there was a “top/bottom” joke
  • It’s a reboot of an old tv show that clearly loves the source material *cough cough* JJ Shmabrams…
  • Funny, intriguing, action packed, and rife with shipping, it seems like tumblr’s dream
  • IN CONCLUSION: GO SEE THIS FILM BECAUSE I WANT A SEQUEL
