This Week: Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Pokemon Go's Team Instinct & More!
Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement…
Friday let’s go over THIS WEEK With The SuperHeroes!
the course of the past year, I’ve been watching Miss Fisher’s
Murder Mysteries… which airs on ABC… not I’m not talking about
the American Broadcasting Company…. Instead I’m referring to the
Australian Broadcasting Corporation, who commissioned a series based
on the novels of Kerry Greenwood and focusing on Phyrne Fisher, an
upper-scale glamorous private eye set in the 1920s. It is very much
from all 34 episodes that I’ve watch a ‘mystery of the week’
show, every episodes sees the crime introduced and Miss Fisher going
about solving it, so it’s formulaic to an extent.
this show shines is through it’s main cast of characters, Miss
Fisher, Detective Inspector Robinson, Dot & Constable Collins…
in that you see that these characters care about each other… there
is the playful flirtatious relationship between Fisher and Robinson
where there is a constant point of conflict over her investigating
crimes and putting herself in danger… then there is the courtship
and marriage of Dot and Collins which is freaking adorable , there is
comedy among the four that feels natural that these are people who
are involved with each other’s lives, which of course helps keeps
the stories interesting when we get those character moments. They
have fully fleshed out personalities and come across as people you
would want to hang out with.
don’t think that the plots of the episodes themselves are mundane,
they aren’t, they are quite good and creative if at times a bit
over the top in regards to the killer’s motivation at times…
there are some elements of an over-arching plots at times, but the
episodes stand on their own. My favorite episode is ‘Murder Under
The Mistletoe’, from the end of series two, which sees a murderer
killing people off while using the twelve days of Christmas as a
theme… that is just wicked cool.
I am really hoping a fourth series gets commissioned by the
Australian Broadcasting Corporation… even though the final episode
of the third series could be a closing episode… because I’m
genuinely invested in this show, cause it gets right what Agent
Carter, which aired on ABC here in the states got wrong.
where Agent Carter failed, is that the characters didn’t matter…
it rarely took advantage of its setting of the 1940s beyond wardrobe…
and the stories were boring and muddled, and it makes me wonder why
people want to save that show, when there is something like Miss
Fisher available… but I digress.
2016 Ghostbuers Film has been officially called a flopped, as it
hasn’t succeeded at the Box Office, between it’s $144 Million
Dollar Budget and $100 Million+ Marketing campaign, it’s global box
office take it $180 Million with only it only pulling in $118 Million
Domestically. The Hollywood Reporter basically reported that a direct
live action sequel if off the table, Paul Feig wants nothing to do
with it or any other franchise that isn’t his directly any more,
and full control over Ghostbusters future has gone back to Ivan
Reitman to try and fix this mess.
the flip side… in it’s first full week Suicide Squad has pulled
in $300 Million World Wide with $161 Million coming domestically…
which is driving feminists insane, cause of the lack of ‘positive
female role-models’ in the film… and word is a sequel has already
Spielburg’s Hook hit its 25th anniversary, and 10 of the
actors who played the Lost Boys reunited for a bit with Entertainment
Tonight, which was pretty cool, if ET didn’t edited it to hell for
just two videos. That said, I remember seeing Hook in theaters, and
for the longest time I considered it to be movie to feature Julia
Roberts. Considering the sets were built, the effects were practical,
visually it holds up very well. Dustin Hoffman as Hook is just
awesome, and what can be said about Robin Williams performance other
than it is iconic in its own way, not his best work, but you’d be
hard pressed to find anyone who could do a better job playing an
older Peter Pan.
Rock and Vin Diesel had battles of equal during the filming of the
latest Fast and Furious film… I’m not surprised… meat head
actors that weren’t apart of the 80s tend not to get along.
Corgain of the Smashing Pumpkins is now the President of TNA
Wrestling… wonder how much that ego-boost cost him…
we’ll close out this week talking about Pokemon Go...
of The Game Theorists posted part two of his look at what teams are
players are choosing when playing Pokemon Go… and I proudly say I’m
a member of Team Instinct… now at the time, I selected that team to
join, I was unaware of what team had the most players, and certainly
not all the data that he gathered when doing his Poke Poll… but at
the same time his theory does hold up when saying people who pick
Team Instinct tend to be those who go for the underdog… well being
in Philadelphia area, that is just natural, our sports teams are
always the underdogs, mainly because they are often terrible, so you
get this chip on the shoulder that comes towards the favored teams.
The other bit is the Perceiver versus the Judgemental aspect… of
which I kind of fall in between, I do things on a schedule… but I’m
casually enough it’s not totally set in stone beyond just doing
something on a particular day. And then there is the color… I wear
a lot of red and blue… so selecting a team that was yellow for me
was just breaking a trend in my personal draping.
on that note, it’s time to go, thank you for watching, be sure to
subscribe to my channel for more nonsense. Tomorrow is Saturday,
which means Doctor Who Tales From The TARDIS and we’ll be wrapping
up the go over of the Sensorites… so till then my friends, and you
are my friends… have a good one.
