twisted recap

allumina  asked:

thank you so much for watching iron fist (and blogging about it) so none of us have to. Taking one for the team!

THE CROSS I BEAR. I do get a twisted joy out of recapping terrible things, maybe I’ll do like a cole’s notes version every few episodes. 

I am, admittedly, paying only minimal attention to everyone’s plot machinations, but I feel like I’m getting most of it. The reviews about it being plodding and the characters being paperthin have been imo very accurate.

Game of Thrones’ shocking "twists" grow emptier by the episode
Ramsay is a psychopath, and no one's ever been able to see his psychopathy coming, not even Littlefinger. This means he can function as a pure expression of the Game of Thrones' will. Need a shocking but ultimately shallow moment? Why, here's Ramsay to kill someone or rape someone or torture someone! He Isn't a character; he's a collection of brutal tics, designed to generate think pieces (like this one!). So what can you even say? Ramsay having his dogs devour a minor character and a baby is, on the one hand, a vile, detestable scene that is everything this show becomes at its worst. It has no reason to exist, it's cruel for the sake of being cruel, and it uncomfortably intersects with the moments when the series has been cavalier about violence against women. But at the same time, it's such a thinly veiled attempt to push buttons that I rolled my eyes at it. What should be provoking a visceral emotional reaction in me, one way or the other, just left me scoffing at Game of Thrones' brazenness.

JYP New Girl Group “TWICE” Finalised With A Twist #JYPUTROLL

Ok, full recap is not happening until a few days time but JYP’s new girl group TWICE has just been formed with the twist of the century.

Not only did JYP suddenly decide that TWICE is going to become a 9 member girl group after announcing the 7 members of Jihyo, Jungyeon, Nayeon, Sana, Mina, Chaeyoung & Dahyun based on performance + online etc votes -  thus adding Tzuyu in and then….

MOMO

OMG

HE BROUGHT BACK SOMEONE WHO GOT ELIMINATED

While I am crying tears of freaking joy for our JYP dancing queen for finally making it and for JYP Japan Line to debut together as they dreamed, I’m feeling so bad, SO BAD, for Minyoung.

Like seriously. While I know she got haters and she is not my bias, god is this cruel. Girl was never eliminated, delivered in 2 more missions after Momo was gone, led Major team for the final mission….

Can we also talk about how her eyes glimmered with hope at the mention of TWICE now being 9 members, and having more hope after Tzuyu was chosen that the next will be her.

WHY JYP WHYYYY

I LOVE THIS LINE-UP BUT I FEEL SO BAD FOR MINYOUNG I CAN’T EVEN CELEBRATE NOW
