The Legend of Korra Recap: A New Spiritual Age

The Legend of Korra Recap: A New Spiritual Age
A wise man (Ok, Max Bialystock from The Producers) once said “When you've got it, flaunt it!” This is wisdom Legend of Korra knows well; with the show's original animation team, the meticulous artisans of Studio Mir, back in tow, and an episode set in a surreal universe where anything goes, “it” was flaunted and then some. Last week, Korra and her surrogate sister Jinora fell down a dragonfly bunny hole to the spirit world. In “A New Spiritual Age,” connections to Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland grew beyond resemblance to full-blown allusion as the duo took their first steps into the parallel universe. Korra arrives with a Queen of Hearts in her crosshairs, the religious zealot Unalaq who is bent on spreading darkness across the land. But in Carrollian tradition, she first had to run into the inhabitants of Wonderland.Writer Tim Hedrick truncates Carroll's story in faithful fashion.

Being Human (USA) season 3 episode 8 review: Your Body Is A Condemned Wonderland

Review Kaci Ferrell 5 Mar 2013 - 07:20

This week's Being Human (USA) set up some tantalisingly tricky situations for our supernatural crew. Here's Kaci's review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.8 Your Body is a Condemned Wonderland

One of my favorite things in TV is when writers actually manage to stump me and I cannot, no matter how much I think about it, figure out how they're going to get their characters out of whatever bad situation they've written them into. I never love fiction more than when I'm shouting, "What? How?" at it because I am nothing if not that person who sits through horror films yelling at the characters to not open the door. 

This week's episode of Being Human managed to set that up while also confusing me greatly in the process, so let's just take it from the beginning. 

Nora is ticked. Beyond ticked. Beyond livid. She's so angry

Being Human Review: Living Dead Girl

  • TVfanatic
I was so sure, going into "Your Body Is a Condemned Wonderland," that I had everything figured out.

I was certain that all of the Nora versus Aidan crap was setting us up for a Liam versus Nora showdown once Liam discovered she killed Brynn. The only person who would to be there to save Nora's ass would be Aidan.

I thought there was no other reason for Nora to turn to incredibly hypocritical in such a short period of time. She even admitted outright she killed Brynn in self defense, but Josh and Aidan only had her word that was the case. They had no trouble accepting her version of events, but Aidan and Josh postulated that Liam clouded Erin's mind, resulting in Aidan killing her in self defense and she was unable to process it.

Instead, Aidan and Josh are two of the best men out there, supernatural or not,

Looking back at Labyrinth

Labyrinth is 25 years old today. Louisa looks back at a classic fantasy movie, starring Jennifer Connelly, lots of puppets, and David Bowie in very tight trousers…

Comedian Robin Ince once said it was impossible for people under forty to experience nostalgia. Real nostalgia meant pain, he argued, a gut-aching, punch in the chest, yearning for home, youth, and a life that no longer existed. Nostalgia was the feeling you had when, having come face to face with the unalterable fact of ageing and mortality, you recognised the things you'd lost, and desperately wanted them back.

The under-forties hadn't yet the distance from their youth to be truly get nostalgia, Ince reasoned. When the under-forties think they're experiencing nostalgia, he said, they're just remembering stuff.

He's got a point. While it might make for a decent pub chat, the loss of Pigeon Street and Mallet's Mallet hasn't left me with any inconsolable yearnings.

Is Tarnish Dulling Oscar's Lustre?

Hollywood's biggest night of the year has come and gone, and it seems many could care less. Last night's 83rd Annual Academy Awards show wasn't as dreadful as many critics have charged, but it wasn't lustrous, either — not the way it has been in decades past — leading many to wonder if the ceremony is: a) losing its relevance; b) compromised by the down economy; c) an indicator of the changing state of both the film and broadcast industry.

The turn of the 21st century has seen the celebrated awards show take a hit. Changes over the past decade seem to have aversely affected the program, including shifting the broadcast from Monday at 9pm to Sunday at 8:30pm in 1999. During the TV writers strike in 2008, just over 32M viewers watched the Oscars, the least viewed ever.

This year the Academy Awards show fell to an 11.7 adults 18-49 rating, down 12% vs.

Marching Through a Blizzard at the Bottom of the World: George Miller’s Microcosmic Penguin Mythmaking

I don’t think there is a singular film-maker I’ve found myself having written more about than Australia’s own Dr. George Miller. And now, writing this, I’m still not quite certain of the best way to introduce him, if indeed such a thing is necessary at all. The last of cinema’s thoroughly modern myth-makers – those implicit, anthropological followers of Campbell and Jung, before George Lucas arrived and gunked up the works with his clunky concretizations – and a college lecturer on the indelible powers of those myths on our collectives psyches and their places in modern cinema, in his spare time. The single-handed spokesman for Australia’s burgeoning film industry, and their self-proclaimed answer to our own Steven Spielberg – although, that’s an arguable comparison, I think. Here is a director whose output has equaled one film in the past ten years – and, just one other film

'WarioWare' Titles, 'Mega Man 10' And 'No More Heroes 2' Top Wii And DS Winter Releases List

Nintendo announced its Winter 2010 release lineups today for the Wii and DS, and the list predictably confirmed dates for games like "No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle" and "Mega Man 10," but it also attached dates to "WarioWare D.I.Y." games for both systems. Check out the complete rundown, which includes both "Alice and Wonderland" and "Zombie Panic in Wonderland" titles, after the jump.

The DS "WarioWare D.I.Y." and Wii "WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase" games will work in tandem, allowing players to create their own "WarioWare" games and then upload them for play on the Wii, which should be a fascinating process to watch once they both get demo'd.

As far as third-party developers go, Ubisoft looks to be hitting the ground running on the Wii in 2010, with "No More Heroes 2" and "Red Steel 2" both hitting in Q1. That's in addition to two other games -- "Sleepover Party" and "Racquet Sports.
