Episode 4: Intergalactic Angst on Instagram

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:
    Men: 5
    Women: 4
    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.
  • This Week in Shit You Should Be Listening To 
    "I'm Ready" by The Shuggah Pies

Thanks for listening!
