Episode 13 - Bookstore Visit and Fanfiction

October 29, 2019 @ 10:19 pm

I talk about a recent bookstore visit, My Struggle, and fan fiction (from 4:40 to the end).

Discussion mentions the fetishization of gay men and the q-word. At 7:54, I reference a conversation that was a specific post and discussion I saw online. At 13:24, I should have said those “involved in producing the film” because the director and writer of Jennifer’s Body were women.

Episode 12 - A Female Villain Trope I Hate (… and More Gotham)

October 22, 2019 @ 7:03 pm

I rant about my distaste for flawless, brilliant female villains who are viewed almost exclusively from a male character's perspective. To me, they fall into the "strong female character" trope at its worst: rather than nuanced or at least powerful characters, they are plot devices who end up reinforcing sexist stereotypes. I mostly discuss "genre" movies and TV, including Penny Dreadful and Gotham.

Episode 11 - Gotham (Part 4): The Penguin (II)

October 9, 2019 @ 4:16 pm

Yeah. More Gotham. I talk about the character Oswald Cobblepot, a.k.a. Penguin, particularly his need for narcissistic supply and his relationships with his mother, the Riddler, and his employees (eventually "subjects"). His inconsistencies are probably due to problematic storytelling, but my brain wanted to make some sense of them. Features SPOILERS, discussion of Penguin's aesthetic, and rants about homophobia.

Episode 9 - Gotham TV Series (Part 2)

September 24, 2019 @ 6:51 pm

A bit later than I expected, I continue my discussion of Gotham. For the first ten minutes or so, I rant about problems with the series, but then I praise its setting, tone, and score. I discuss characters and may very well record another podcast to go more into more depth about likely the most popular character on the show, dear old Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin. (Some background sounds and mild spoilers.)

Where I discuss mostly the negative aspects of the TV show Gotham. (I'll share more positives later.) I also explain my lack of familiarity with comic books, why sometimes I only watch certain plotlines in a television series, and my three main problems with the Batman prequel Gotham.
