Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!
Illness has struck TWiL HQ, so we're skipping The Book Report this week to bring you an abbreviated show, done in our best Phoebe Buffay sexy voices. Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:
- This Week in Comics
Hawkeye #17, Ms. Marvel #2, Black Widow #4, Captain Marvel #1, and Sex Criminals #5 | No home runs in comics this week, I'm sorry to say, but we do have a lively discussion about "Ms. Marvel." It's okay--we did love the exact same joke in "Hawkeye," so our house divided can still stand. "Black Widow" and "Captain Marvel" weren't really for me this week (it's not them, it's me) and I ditched "Sex Criminals" altogether, despite an earlier promise to Allison, but she has some thoughtful things to say about the portrayal of mental illness in this issue. (Disagreements about Ms. Marvel! Broken promises! Coming up next on "Behind the Podcast!") Speaking of "Sex Criminals," Chip Zdarsky tweeted pictures of his models for Suzie and Jon earlier this month and the resemblance is uncanny.
- The Veronica Mars Movie
Major spoilers ahead! The disagreements continue as we discuss one Mr. Logan Echolls. Not that I disagree with what Allison and NPR's Linda Holmes have to say about Logan, and if he were a real dude, I'd keep my distance and want my friends to do the same. But I don't mind the fantasy of a bad man saved by the love of a good woman. Plus he's so hot and their chemistry is like burning. Aside from that one little, tiny thing, we pretty much agreed on the strengths (witty repartee, atmosphere, father-daughter relationships) and weaknesses (television pacing, serious Piz misuse) of the Veronica Mars movie. So, did you see it? What did you think? Write in or leave a comment below!
