Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!
Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:
- This Week in Comics
Ody-C, Fearless Defenders #6, Hawkeye #12 and Young Avengers #7 | Matt Fraction's got a new comic coming out in 2014 (Has that guy got a time turner, or what?!). We're over Fearless Defenders; we've got faith in Matt Fraction and Hawkeye; and we love the use of the female gaze in Young Avengers. Check out Kieron Gillen's notes on the issue and Jamie McKelvie's notes on the DPS.
- This Week in Teen Wolf (Please note that this segment does include discussion of attempted suicide, specifically by teenagers.)
"Frayed" and "Motel California" | Derek Hale can get it. And he does. Other stuff happens. More people die.
Current death tally:
Undead Men: 2
Undead Women: 1
- The Heat and female friendships on film
We give this movie two thumbs up! Great jokes, great soundtrack, great ladies. Related to our conversation: Linda Holmes on the ordinariness of The Heat; John Scalzi's personal feminism; and "Melissa McCarthy Outperforms Comedy's Leading Men." We also talk more broadly about female friendship movies. Conclusion: there aren't enough of them. See Vulture's recent article on the rarity of female buddy movies in particular.
