True enough, I probably shouldn't have expected that it would fit exactly what I wanted. I do enjoy "Gotham" though so I guess I'll give it a few episodes when it airs.

Speaking of Fox — it's Galaxy Quest, the series…



An obvious comparison, I know, but that's how obvious the show itself appears to be.

(hey, i'm just doing my part to try to keep this forum active. there's so little actual H!P news right now, since they just finished several releases and are now out on their spring tours.)

Speaking of SciFi shows, I'm still bummed CBS is shoving the new "Star Trek" series behind a paywall to attract people to their streaming service. If it doesn't bring in a decent paying audience I imagine the show will be blamed and dropped after one season.

I was rewatching Daria recently and I started to ponder what Daria would look like if it was remade as an Anime (like Powerpuff Girls Z). Unfortunately, I think it would look like Super GALS and Quinn would be the lead character. Either that or Daria would be made very sex-obsessed and it would look like WataMote.

^ If they were seriously going to do it I think a "Princess Jellyfish" art style would suffice (but something like "Kimi ni Todoke" would be interesting next to the harsh personalities in the show - as much as those would carry over anyway).

I'm finally catching up on Orphan Black in anticipation of the fifth and final season, and while I still have the same concerns about the plotting of the show itself…

viewtopic.php?p=157616#p157616

…I gotta say that Tatiana Maslany freakin' earned that Emmy last year. It's uncanny: I genuinely forget sometimes that it's the same actress playing, like, a dozen different characters in total and often 3–4 different characters at the same time. Every one of them is so distinct.

*checks her Wikipedia page*

Yup, she's won pretty much alllll of the awards. Good for her.

I just got home from seeing this. Obviously it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know about the Japanese idol phenomenon, but I thought it did a decent job of presenting the subject to an audience that (for the most part) probably knew little or nothing about it. I thought it was a pretty balanced depiction without any blatantly negative agenda, though some reviews that I read seemed to think otherwise. With no narrator and a limited number of onscreen captions to give some background and identify the people in the film, it let the idols, their fans, and sometimes the idols' parents do most of the talking. They also had a handful of media and academic talking heads (including Hyadain) giving their views. One male sociologist and one female journalist provided most of the negative comments about the idol industry and especially the fans. Will most American viewers come away from the film thinking that middle-aged, male, idol otaku are perverted, pathetic losers, despite the film's even-handed treatment? Well, yeah. But what else would you expect?

As for the dramatis personae, none of the H!P girls appear in the documentary, though we do get a few shots of an Up Up Girls (仮) handshake event. Most of the film focuses on solo idol Hiiragi Rio and her 43-year-old super-fan Koji, but we also get bits on Yuka from P.IDL, Amu from Harajuku Monogatari, Yuzu from Amore Carina, and Ōshima Ryōka from AKB48 (not so much her as her wota).

Here's an intelligent article about the film, including an informative interview with director Miyake Kyōko:

It's been playing at the California Theatre in downtown Berkeley for two months now. Remarkable. They stopped showing the dub four weeks ago, but the subtitled version will still be showing for another week at least.

If they transliterate names, Morgandorffer would be rendered as Asanomura (朝の村).

^ Sorry to be pedantic, but that would be a translation, not a transliteration. A transliteration is merely a conversion from one writing system to another, not from one language to another. In the strictest sense, it's a letter-for-letter conversion from one alphabet to another. For example, my username erilaz (or erilaR) is a transliteration into Latin letters of a Proto-Norse word that was originally written in early Germanic runes.

Since I'm already in pedant mode, two more points:
1. The character's name is spelt Morgendorffer, not Morgandorffer.
2. As a rule, the hiragana の isn't used to link two elements in a surname, even in those relatively rare cases where "no" is pronounced, such as "Inoue" (井上). Asamura is far more likely than Asanomura, and does in fact exist as a Japanese surname.

I should probably read the manga... but oh the show is just so good and i don't wanna have to read through all that again, knowing there's also slightly differing story elements... can't wait for season 3 in (supposed) 2018

And here we are…



It looks like it could be really bad, maybe because it's a little too faithful to the comics and therefore too cheesy for live action. About the only thing it doesn't have is Black Bolt's mask and wings…

But Iwan Rheon gives me hope. They're certainly featuring the hell out of him in the promotion. 'Cuz everyone loves to hate Ramsay Bolton.
