New characters in Dirk Gently season 2

Mr. Priest is a ruthless, dangerous and violent bounty hunter working for Blackwing, he will be played by Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Rogue One)                           According to Alan Tudyk the character “ has big weapons and shoots massive guns” he also referred to his character as “ bad-evil.” Mr. Priest thinks the anomalies (Blackwing subjects) deserve to be locked up because they are dangerous and takes a great deal of pleasure in hunting them down.

The Mage is a powerful wizard who takes great pleasure in doing evil and is seeking to conquer a world not his own he will be played by John Hannah (Agents of SHIELD, The mummy)

Suzie Boreton is an unassuming, insecure, depressed soccer mom who is selected for an unexpected role by the Mage, and gradually reveals her true, terrifying self to our heroes. She will be played by Amanda Walsh (Disturbia, Lost Girl)

Sherlock Hobbs is an under-stimulated, but overly enthusiastic small town (Bergsberg) sheriff who is eager to help Dirk and crew solve a new mystery. He initially arrests ‘the gang’ before letting them go because he “thinks what they’re doing is super cool.” Hobbs will be played by Tyler Labine (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Voltron) 

Tina Tevetino is a deadpan, bone-dry former bad girl-turned-cop with a “let’s just see what happens” approach to literally everything she is the deputy of Birdsberg, Montana and will be played by Izzie Steele.                                       At the 2017 SDCC Panel Robert Cooper said “ Hobbs and Tevetino mirror Estevez and Zimmerfield but are totally different, Estevez and Zimmerfield were the normal ones, the buttoned up sort of average person perspective this year Hobbs and Tina are kinda like fans of season 1..” 

Wygar Oak is a dominating enforcer for the Dengdamor royal family and will be played by Alek Paunovic (Van Helsing, Supernatural)

Mona Wilder did make an appearance in season 1 (Bart watches her advert in the hotel with Ken https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrovGrtZ_WE) she’s also seen in Amanda Brotzman’s post energy sucking Rowdy 3 vision. But she hasn’t really been introduced properly as a character, yet.

The clown squishy toy, which is also in season 1, will make a reappearance and will play a bigger role in season 2

The Beast:

possibly this goat:

And whatever the hell this is:

tucker & dale and the instigation of internet mob culture

Re-watching Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (the parody movie where the rednecks in the woods are the hapless protagonists and its the bunch of paranoid college kids causing all the problems.)

I’d forgotten how much the situation was escalated by the one teenager who was clearly looking for an excuse to hurt people.  The college kid that, at the beginning of the movie, explicitly declares himself a better person than those around him.


He’s the one who tells his friends “what’s really going on here is worse than you think.” He’s the one who insists they handle it themselves and not through official channels. He’s the one who casts his opponents as “pure evil” and says “we finally have a chance to fight back without rules.” When some of the other teenagers express uncertainty he’s the one that says if they can’t handle what needs to be done, maybe they deserve to die, too.

“We have to burn this place to the ground.  Destroy it completely. You have no IDEA what this is all about, do you Allison? These freaks are evil. And they deserve everything that’s coming to them.”

I’d never realized before how closely every single plot point in the movie mirrors the way mob culture instigators will rile up the masses under the guise of “social justice”:

  1. You assume bad faith in your opponents.
  2. You declare your opponents subhuman and acceptable to hurt by any means.
  3. You discourage the use of peaceful or official methods to address the issue.
  4. You keep your followers in line through fear of the “other” and threats of ousting them into that group if they become “contaminated.”
  5. You revel in as much chaos and pain as you can inflict–

–after all, you’re the good guy.
