Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!
Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:
- This Week in Comics
She-Hulk #9, Saga #24, Sheltered #12 and MCU: Phase Three | She-Hulk gets cancelled, we get outraged; Saga goes on hiatus on a high note; and Sheltered thankfully doesn't end with issue #12. After we talk comics, we share our feelings about the announcement of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They are many. Our feelings about this clip? Also many. Shout out to Chris Sims for this perfect response to the announcement of Black Panther.
- This Week in the Book Report
Interpretations | In this week's book report, we discuss books that are interpretations of earlier works, a conversation reminiscent of our discussion of adapted fairy tales, though some of the best examples of "interpretation vs. adaptation" come from film (think My Fair Lady and Clueless). The frequently re-interpreted include Shakespeare, Jane Austen and Homer. And we know there are a lot of takes on the Cyrano de Bergerac story, but could only come up with one, so help us out and write in with more examples!
- Spin-offs: Play it Again, Dick and more!
Inspired by the Veronica Mars meta-spin-off Play it Again, Dick, we discuss great TV spin-offs (believe it or not, we don't dwell on the not-so-great ones); the difference between spin-offs and franchises; and which minor characters we'd love to see with their own shows. (We're in complete agreement that the wrong BtVS boyfriend got his own show.) In our discussion of franchises, we briefly preview our next show, in which we're going to talk about this season's comic book shows, leading to Becca's introduction to the Flash Gordon theme. You're welcome.
Thanks for listening!
