Hey guys! It's been forever. Sorry about spending so long offline, it's been a rush getting the credits in. All my history stuff is turned in, but I ended up needing more time for Chemistry. Thankfully, I got an extension until Wednesday and should be able to turn that all in. How have you two been?
Have you two ever heard of Brooklyn 99? When I heard about how good it was after it got cancelled (then renewed by NBC), I was interested and checked it out. I was disappointed at the start, but after watching a few episodes, I was pleasantly surprised. The characters got better and it got more funny and I just finished season 5 today. If you do find yourselves interested in watching the show, the first 4 seasons are on DVD and the entire 5th season is on the Fox website as long as you give your TV provider.
It has its ups and downs, but overall, it's a very satisfying show. Jake (the immature lead detective) isn't like 95% of other times when a fun and not so serious guy is the lead of the show. He actually apologizes when he makes mistakes, tries to be better, and still apologizes for doing things the wrong way even if the bad guy is captured (whereas most other shows would be like "You caught this guy! Forget that you didn't follow the rules, you got the bad guy, so we'll compliment you, apologize to you, and you never apologize for not following protocol!''). And not just him, all the characters do wrong at some point or another and they apologize almost all of the time.
Also, the relationships aren't actually the central focus with everyone only dating people they met at work. They meet people outside of work, even marry them. We don't see the love interests often or hear much beyond a few conversations, it's mostly focused on the case.
All in all, 8.2 out of 10. Would recommend.
If what I heard about of the last few episodes of Supergirl are correct, I've completely lost faith in the show. No idea if I'll be returning. It's just wrong if people with our age and lack of experience in writing can write better than professionals and really just makes me want to A: punch something and B: become the best screenwriter so people can see not all of us are as terrible as most of the CW writers. They make all us writers look bad.
I don't know much about the recent Thor related events. Have not seen Ragnarok yet.
Yeah, at least this time around, Fitz can get some help. I really hope we get to see more of Daisy and Fitz friendship in the next season. Maybe Fitz struggling with the Doctor being in his head while Daisy is having a hard time controlling her powers (cause of the power boost) and just sort of locking herself away from everyone so she doesn't hurt them (especially Fitz because while she knows that this wasn't the Fitz who hurt her, she still is sort of afraid of him and knows he is capable of doing it)? And the two eventually sitting down talking about traumas and how much they've changed?
I too wish there were more tears for future Fitz and Coulson. I mean, Coulson is the reason they're all there, he brought the team together. And while future Fitz hurt people and there's a Fitz in space that hasn't done some of the bad things he's done yet, it doesn't change the fact that future Fitz has been with them for years and was part of the team.
I honestly would like it if Coulson quietly passed away. After everything he's been through, he deserves a few peaceful final days and a death that isn't super violent. The only way of bringing him back that I would be satisfied with is if a major movie character was involved. Like, let's take Coulson to Wakanda and have Shuri fix him! She helped Ross, she can figure out some miracle for Coulson too. I would feel kind of let down if he was brought back in any other way.
To be honest, I'm kind of glad Robbie didn't appear this season. Time travel was already confusing enough before adding any Spirits of Vengeance.
I really hope this show becomes a classic after it's finished. Like Firefly. It had terrible ratings and kept moving around on the schedule, but over the years, it has become must see science fiction television. It's been on my list forever.
It's been forever since my last message. Is your cousin out of the hospital yet? How is he?
I think Peter's goodbye got to people the most for several reasons.
1. He was so scared and the only one to get to say more than a word or two before he turned to dust.
2. Flashbacks to "I don't want to go" from Doctor Who (I haven't even seen Doctor Who yet, and I know that scene was heart crushing)
3. He's a kid. In that moment, you don't see Spider Man, you see a scared kid who doesn't want to go yet.
4. Amazing acting.
5. He was the last one (I think, I don't remember clearly) to turn to dust.
