I honestly can’t decide if Milo’s dominant emotion is Joy or Fear; probably the former, but Fear would at least be second-in-command. Joy just wants Milo to try everything while Fear is there to remind him that they need to keep the backpack stocked up. The two may be friends or friendly rivals with each other.
Disgust, of course, represents all of Milo’s tastes. This means (s)he is a total dork, obsessed with polka music and flying off the handle if they have to miss the new Doctor Zone Files. I’m vaguely imagining Disgust as a girl who kind of represents Sara’s influence on Milo, while Sara might have a Milo-esque Disgust herself.
We haven’t seen Milo angry much so far, but he seems to default to sarcasm (”Mr. Chase, I’m flattered…but no.”) So Anger spends more of his/her time snarking at the others than blowing up with fire hair.
Much like with Riley in the movie, Milo’s Sadness is lurking in the background, but when (s)he gets a turn at the controls look out.
milo doesnt really show a wide range of emotion. in desperate times, even, hes usually either cheery or completely straightfaced. (like when his backpack got crushed and he just said “hmm, well maybe you can worry a little bit) if he has a meltdown, usually what triggers it is something small because he bottles up his emotions without realizing it.
he also doesnt really get why people would want to know if hes feeling okay or not because like why would they care about his emotions he doesnt even care about his own emotions
brigette has a lot of varied special interests and shes very lucky bc theyre all usually something she can make a job out of
both milo and sara have a special interest in dr zone and they get irritated sometimes bc infodumping to each other is USELESS they already KNOW all of this stuff
milo doesnt really… “get” personal space like hes good with staying away from someone who hes not close with but whenever hes able to move someone from “friend” to “close friend” he starts hanging all over them
amanda hates it when her routines are interrupted in any way and changing her routine can easily lead to a meltdown
on one hand bradley is like “im autistic and that can mean that im better than others at doing stuff” but on the other hes like “im a burden to the people around me bc im autistic”. he has really black and white thinking when it comes to anything and has a hard time viewing himself as equal to other ppl
amanda has a lot of special interests in musicals and operas and likes to rewatch things much more than she likes watching them for the first time
amanda and bradley both dont like being touched without giving permission first
milo likes to fidget and rock to stim, bradley likes pressure stimming, sara likes to snap repeatedly and sing random songs, amanda scratches herself, rubs her hands against walls when shes walking, and chews on stuff (usually her hair), and brigette flaps
when martin and brigette first met, he tried to hint to her that she should stay away from him but she didnt catch on and then he didnt want her to leave him alone anymore
Valiant: My Lord, am I really to be judged on some hearsay from a boy? Merlin: I’ve seen those snakes come alive! Uther: How dare you interrupt?! Guards! [Guards begin taking Merlin away.]
My #1 reason for adoring the episode “Valiant,” though, is actually kind-of embarrassing. There’s a tiny moment in the midst of the scene where Valiant accuses Merlin of lying and Uther orders soldiers to cart him away where Bradley James (Arthur) breaks character and it kills me so much.
Arthur’s supposed to look really upset that this is happening to Merlin. But if you watch the scene and pay attention Bradley during to the long shot where the guards seize Merlin (right around 27:40 on Netflix), Bradley James turns back to Colin Morgan (Merlin) with this shit-eating grin on his face, like, hell yes you are getting grabbed by the extras, Colin, are you enjoying this moment, etc.
People. I find this utterly endearing. I’ve watched this sequence SO MANY TIMES IN A ROW.
(Or should I say “post-post-mortem,” haha… Sorry.)
With the finale of “Frankenstein M.D.“ nearly three weeks behind us, I wanted to collect my thoughts on the experience, both as someone who worked on the show from beginning to end and as someone who’s interested in fandom responses to interactive storytelling. These are just my opinions, not representative of Pemberley Digital’s views, and I’d love to hear some different takes on the subject.
It’s safe to say that this web series had a lot going for it. We were attached to PBS, “The Most Trusted Brand in America,” with all of its funding and media connections behind us. The initial announcement about a gender-bent, women-in-science adaptation went viral on Tumblr to the tune of 22,000 notes (from this very blog - I’m still so tickled I pulled that off). We hired a great cast from all different corners of digital media: quirky newcomers Anna Lore and Evan Strand, YouTube comedian Steve Zaragoza with his hordes of followers, web series veterans Brendan Bradley and Sara Fletcher, and seasoned television/stage actor Kevin Rock. And we were filming at YouTube Space LA, with its well-equipped sound stages and elaborate sets, and added support from its PR team.
Loving the show. I haven’t read Frankenstein and I haven’t seen any movies or anything, so I just know the basics: Frankenstein creates a ‘monster’.
I’m enjoying watching the show without having read the source material. It’s a different type of anticipation than the one I had for the LBD, Sandition, and EA. And I learn about some cool science stuff!
