If you follow me you’re probably aware of the shows I like since I’m binge-reblogging stuff all the fucking time and I get sliiightly obsessed but whatever, here’s a list of rec.
It’s based on the Neil Gaiman book and made by Brian Fuller. Think Hannibal-aesthetic meet mythologies from all around the world. Think Old Gods in a war with New Gods. Imagine Gillian Anderson in a David Bowie costume making puns with David Bowie lyrics. Diverse cast and characters. The lead is a black man who has no idea what the fuck is happening to him but still goes with the flow. Trigger warning for violence I guess (but with the Brian Fuller aesthetic so it’s not a Game of Thrones type of violence).
1 season (8 episodes), 2nd in production. Available on Starz and Amazon.
Bounty hunters in space! Lots of humor, lots of sass, lots of competent, smart people! Also lots of feels because even tho it starts light and fun, it delves deeper quite quickly and it’s delightful. Basically the story of a genius engineer turned spaceship thief, an assassin with a mysterious past and a former soldier chasing fugitives across a solar system. Badass secondary characters, all the found family feels and a talking spaceship.
3 seasons (10 episodes each), waiting to be renewed. Available on SyFy and Netflix.
Okay so I made a whole post about why this is a really cool show but basically it’s the story of a functional alcoholic who’s supposed to break a curse that started with her great great grand-father, the Wyatt Earp from the OK Corral. She’s helped by her super smart little sister, a mysterious Deputy Marshal who has approximately one facial expression and a dude coming straight from the 19th century who rocks the 70s p0rn star mustache. Lots of sass, cute LGBT representation, quite diverse cast, badass people all around, all the found family feels and lots of fun pop culture ref and puns.
2 seasons (a dozen of episodes each), renewed for a 3rd. Available on SyFy and Netflix.
The Night Shift
Don’t trust the overly dramatic and ridiculous promo pictures, they don’t do this show justice. Basically take an ER in San Antonio during the night shift, fill it with doctors who are mostly former army docs and who don’t really play by the rules, add pretty good representation and a tendency to show the surgeries up close and bam, that the show. Also they address racial and social issues, current events, homophobia, veteran issues, etc etc. Again with the found family feels, diverse cast and sass (I sense a pattern).
4 seasons (a dozen of episodes each), waiting to be renewed. Available on NBC and Amazon.
The Cold War meets some detective noir novel meets a survival horror game meets a dystopian world in space. Or: the Earth and Mars are in a mutually assured destruction stand down, the Asteroid Belt is populated by exploited people who live in miserable conditions, a police detective from the Belt has to find a woman who disappeared and meanwhile a spaceship crew tries to survive after the destruction of their ship. Also there’s a weird bio-weapon. Awesome diverse cast, great characters development, they address tons of social issues, amazing power plays and strong female characters.
2 seasons (10 and 13 episodes each), renewed for a 3rd. Available on SyFy and Neflix.
And that’s it for now. I could talk about A LOT of other tv shows but I wanted to focus on the ones that haven’t been completed/cancelled.
I watch tons of tv shows so if you’re looking for a specific genre, you can always ask
Hey I was wondering if you have any thoughts on Harley's dolphin tattoo. Do you think it was from when she was Harleen? It just seems so out of place compared to her other tattoos. Thanks!
That’s the tattoo of hers that I hate more than any other. It’s so incredibly OOC. “Lucky you” Who is that supposed to be aimed toward? Harley isn’t a prostitute or something. Her dedication to Joker has been mentioned by Margot MULTIPLE times and we were never given any implication that she’s breaking that dedication.
The tattoo is actually based on a tattoo from a real p0rn star which I can only assume was the result of someone seeing it and thinking it would be “sexy” to add to Harley’s design.
Overall, it’s incredibly trashy, has nothing to do with anything that defines Harley Quinn, and it also makes zero sense for Harley’s character since it contradicts her dedication to J.
What ever happened between Rita and Off? Also, when and why does Off use her were-form?
1. Rita left her to move to LA and became a p0rn star. they haven’t talked since then.
2. Off can turn herself into a cat at every moment (but she doesn’t do it often) - it’s just a regular cat form. sometimes she just feel that she need to run a bit, or she shift when feels ill or just not-in-a-mood and want to be alone. but while new moon all werecats are becoming stronger, a little bigger and much more wilder. then she’s just running as crazy through forests, hunting and doing werecat-stuff :) like full moon for werewolves - a new moon is “that day” for werecats c:
