A note on Hannibal recaps + sundries

If you're on my flist and you read Sam's (hilarious, awesome) Hannibal recaps on HDJM, you might have to wait a while for new ones. I fully support her decision to take a step back and rethink things after this recent episode. With yet another WOC being fridged, it's difficult to support a show that shows disregard for it's very dedicated fanbase, especially when the show runner is dismissive to people asking why he continues to treat WOC/POC in such a manner.

We'll post to the site's Tumblr when new recaps arrive, should that happen. <3

However, you don't have to wait for this week's Walking Dead recap, as it's up and filled with helpful protips and my theorizing about the season finale next week. CLEEK HERE!

ION, it's so lovely and warm and sunny outside. Ahhhh! Perfect weather to rip out the garden and burn it to the ground. (There's a pernicious weed that has taken over the shade bed all winter - underground runners like crazy. Fun! *cries*)

I am not prepared for the season finale of TW tonight. Wait, I can find solace in the AMAZINGLY TALENTED FANDOM WHEN IT ENDS. /Happy sigh

Last night we made buffalo burgers with bacon-onion jam, chipotle Tabasco sauce and goat cheese on top, and if you heard a pleased wail last night and couldn't figure out what that was, IT WAS ME. :D

Nope; those are officially done. But thanks, though!

I feel like TW is so much better when it is on hiatus and in the hands of the fans.

AGREED. *leans*

What is it with the fridging of WOC lately? Person of Interest, Arrow, Hannibal... It's not a new problem, obviously, but there are ways in which the media landscape really is getting better, and then -- oops, not so much. Grrr.

It's really fucking disheartening to see that tide rolling back in so strongly this month, to say the least. And given that HDJM exists to be excited... =/

Right, exactly -- I can totally see someone saying "I just can't get excited about this show in the wake of this bullshit." God knows I have stopped watching shows for less, and doing write-ups requires a lot more effort and investment.

It's sad to see. Like, I'll usually keep watching the shows when stuff like this happens, because I want to see how other things turn out, but the unabashed excitement and support is gone. For some, it's more of a betrayal when it comes out all of a sudden from a show that seemed to be doing well, and not just from a show that's had problematic aspects and uneven handling of issues from the beginning (ex. Game of Thrones, I have to say).

Oh, my GOD those burgers sound ah mah zing! Off to read the recap! :)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
