Buffy Week, Day 3: Five By Five

And now, the last leg of my Top 11-30 Buffy episodes. Again, these like the rest are not in order of preference of quality but chronological in terms of air date.

17. This Year’s Girl / Who Are You? Season 4, Episodes 14 and 15.

Buffy (in Faith’s body): When I had psychic power, I heard my mom think that you were like a stevedore during sex. Do you want me to continue? 

Giles: Actually, I beg you to stop. 

Buffy (in Faith’s body): What’s a stevedore?

Buffy Week, Day 1: Monsters Had Nightmares About Her

I’ve long avoided creating my “favorite Buffy episodes” list. Through the years, fellow Buffy enthusiasts have always asked me what my Top 5 or 10 eps are, and while I had an inkling of which ones definitely make the cut, it was difficult really setting these in stone because there are just so many that I love – whether due to personal tastes (i.e. guilty pleasures) or simply because the episode was a masterpiece, or both.

Come Together: Unite The League

Finally, we get the first full official Justice League trailer.

This, of course, does not count the SDCC trailer, which was also awesome but was really meant as a comicon pull. And this time, we get to see more more more.

Season 1 Credits

She may be dead, but she’s still pretty.

Okay, maybe not dead, but definitely no longer on the air.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains to be my favorite genre TV show of all time. Perhaps even favorite TV show, period. Throughout seven seasons onscreen (and several more after through comics, plus the original movie), we saw this quirky concept gain a massive following which, to this day, remains to be an extremely loyal fanbase.

Red Nose Roundup

Last week, as a precursor to the UK’s Red Nose Day 2017, videos of three celebrities posing as British Airways agents and pranking several travelers in Heathrow Airport were released. Those three celebs happen to be some of my faves: gay Olympic diver Tom Daley, Spice Girl Emma Bunton, and Little Britain‘s David Walliams.

(And if you’ve never watched Little Britain, shame on you.)

Now these are must watch hidden cam pranks! To be completely honest, Tom was not that funny except for a couple of beats, but he was still absolutely adorable. Emma was very funny, especially when she would randomly infuse the conversations with random Spice lyrics and the customers would still be so clueless and unaware. David Walliams is of course a comedic genius and was just  hilarious AF, especially whenever he just deadpanned his way through things.

Same Same…

… but still different.

If ever I decide to migrate out of the Philippines, Thailand is definitely one of the primary options (aside from Colombia, Bulgaria, and Australia). The culture is so similar, the food is so awesome, and it already does feel like home.

Retrofitting Wonder Woman

Now here’s a Wonder Woman movie I would not mind watching, too.

Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot just absolutely nail the character. I wish Lynda would appear in the DCEU at some point. Come on, Warner and DC! You know that would be gold.

Tale As Old As Time

by on Mar.20, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky, Literature, Music & Theater, Queer

As expected, Disney’s live action remake of their animated classic Beauty and the Beast is as magical as the original. Although the new film is quite faithful to the first one, it still does have a few changes, primarily in order to flesh out the backstories and motivations of the characters. Some new songs were added along the way to enhance the story beats and the character arcs. All these resulted in a richer, deeper, and in many ways slightly darker approach to a classic tale that’s, well, as old as time.
