Asking The Important Questions


What would you do if you could change one thing about the past; if you could undo one action (or inaction) that had precipitated a cruelty that's caused heartbreak and torment all the days since then?

Would such a miracle, picking at that central thread of a person's life, unravel the tapestry of events that created who that person is (or was)?  


Or would it be awesome....with a giant robot fighting for justice...




What if the only sane person you regularly interact with is your evil nemesis, the the leader of the magical autism squad?


What's it like in hell anyway?


Flip Flappers....I've got no idea what this series is about. But, I'm going with this for now...



This show is cute, it's whimsical, it's high-octane nightmare fuel and it is brilliantly put together. 

It is also blazing new trails in the fashion and technology of legwear. 



It is NOT however, a reliable, peer reviewed source of information on rabbit anatomy.

RWBY 4-2

There's no actual action in this episode, but a lot of stuff is established. 

Ruby keeps having nightmares about Pyrrha and keeps hearing her voice at night. 


Do you remember when the backgrounds were an afterthought if they were present at all?

We do get to see Weiss. Her family life is about what we'd come to expect. 



Our heroes reach the village they've been looking for only to find it razed. The lone survivor explains that it was bandits, followed by grimm...and expires. Ren and Nora recognize....something.



Ren and Nora's history has only been alluded to obliquely. It is known that they are both orphans and strongly implied that they are the only survivors of their village(s?).

 

This was a solidly written episode. 
This season is off to a stellar start.

Flip-Flappers

It's pretty clear from the title what this show's going to be about...

When two teenage girls trying to make it as real estate speculators in Prohibition era Chicago decide to compete for top prize in a dance contest at a local speakeasy, they manage to run afoul of the mob, some cultists, a Bolshevik plot and an inept gumshoe. Our heroines must cope with bandits, biplanes, and 10,000 bullets as they...


Wait...


That synopsis may not actually be entirely accurate. 

Good Grief! This show's title is completely misleading.

OK, I have NO idea what is going on in Flip-Flappers, and can't even make a guess as to the etymology of the title

But I kind of like it.
