As promised in my last column, this week is about bi-erasure in comics. It’s come up too often as of late and deserves its own column rather than being crammed into an already dense essay on critiques of Iceman’s coming out. It’s a problem that extends beyond the comics themselves, and has reached the TV adaptations as well.
Before diving in, I want to make sure we’re all on the same page. Bi-erasure is varying levels of denying bisexuality truly exists, whether intentional or not. In comics, this manifests itself in rewriting bisexual characters as being straight or gay, having characters tell other characters they’re definitely just gay and not bisexual despite many decades being written as straight and refusing to even entertain the idea that maybe that character would be bi, using shapeshifters to skirt around the issue of bisexuality, and that’s just a few general examples. »

24 years ago today, Uncle Jesse took a new step as a dad when his and Becky’s twins were born in a season 5 episode of “Full House.” With two back-to-back episodes penned by series creator Jeff Franklin, the November 12, 1991 hour of “Full House” started with Michelle’s fifth birthday party, featuring a series of flashbacks about the character played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Michelle, afraid of losing her status as the baby of the family since Becky’s pregnant, declares she’s going to stay four years old. But another series of flashbacks changes her mind. When Becky’s babies come earlier than expected, Michelle ends up sharing her birthday with the twins, and she wonders whether that will be a good thing. When Jesse — who has spent the episode dealing with sympathy pains — tells Michelle that this will mean three birthday cakes, she says, “That’s a very good thing. »

Since he first appeared as medical student John Carter in the Emergency Room of County General Hospital, Ill., Noah Wyle has specialised in playing a particular type of brainy hero. During his record-breaking tenure in ER, Wyle was notably the first to portray a fictional version of Steve Jobs in biopic Pirates Of Silicon Valley, a part that earned him an invitation from Mr Jobs to play a prank on the audience at the 1999 Macworld Expo.
Among a host of stage and screen roles, Wyle also played the small but memorable role of Dr Monitoff, a science teacher with an interest in parallel universes in 2001's Donnie Darko, followed in 2004 with the part of Flynn Carsen, perpetual student-turned-Indiana-Jones-type in three The Librarian television movies. »
Now she plans to put that to good use and create the 'definitive vampire genre documentary' alongside her husband Deverill Weekes.
The actress - who is seeking crowdfunding support to bring the documentary to screen - has gathered interviews with many experts on the genre, including directors, writers and actors across film, television and novels.
Gary Oldman, who played Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola's film of the same name, will make an appearance, as will Anne Rice and Charlaine Harris, authors of Interview with the Vampire and the True Blood novels respectively.
The documentary's description reads: "It is a tapestry with beautiful, »
A good comedy can make people laugh until it hurts and a great drama can reduce an audience to tears, but nothing affects movies goers as profoundly as a terrifying horror story. The experience of watching a horror movie taps into the viewer’s most primal instincts, causing physical reactions like trembling, screaming and leaping out of one’s seat. Everyone has experienced at least one film that left them leering at dark corners and afraid to go to sleep. Horror stories and the anthology format are the perfect match. Anthologies allow for several features over the course of a single film, and each one can frighten, »

Powers Boothe (Sin City, Deadwood, Nashville) has joined Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a recurring role as Gideon Malick, a notorious man whose loyalties remain a mystery. Boothe previously appeared in Marvel's The Avengers as a member of the World Security Council. While Marvel wouldn't say much more about Gideon Malick, it's possible that he could actually be the next Red Skull. Here's what Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, had to say in a statement regarding the casting.
"Gideon is incredibly menacing and in him we have a character that even the stone-cold Grant Ward would fear. Only someone of Powers' caliber could deliver the type of ominous and powerful performance we needed."
In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson will search the world for more powered people and will face threats unlike the world has ever seen. »

Special Mention: Battle Royale
Written and directed by Kinji Fukasaku
The concept of The Hunger Games owes much to Koushun Takami’s cult novel Battle Royale, adapted for the cinema in 2000 by Kinji Fukasaku. The film is set in a dystopian alternate-universe, in Japan, with the nation utterly collapsed, leaving 15 percent unemployed and 800,000 students boycotting school. The government passes something called the Millennium Educational Reform Act, which apparently provides for a class of ninth-graders to be chosen each year and pitted against one another on a remote island for 3 days. Each student is given a bag with a randomly selected weapon and a few rations of food and water, and sent off to kill each other in a no-holds-barred fight to the death. With 48 contestants, only one will go home alive. Yes, this has been often cited as the original Hunger Games; whether or not Suzanne Collins borrowed heavily »

Drew Goddard cut his teeth in the entertainment industry as a writer for Joss Whedon on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Since then he's stayed largely in the TV world, having worked on Alias, Lost, and Marvel's Daredevil series, but he continues to flex some increasingly big movie muscles. He wrote Cloverfield, he directed Cabin in the Woods (which he co-wrote with Whedon), and he was supposed to write and direct The Sinister Six before the Andrew Garfield-version of Spider-Man fell to the wayside. Goddard's latest movie credit is as the screenwriter of The Martian, which he adapted from Andy Weir's fantastic book about an astronaut who gets mistakenly left for dead on Mars. In fact, Goddard was the original director on the project but had to pass when The...

Despite a ratings dip, Bones was not cancelled after season 10. Fox renewed Bones for season 11. Now, E! is breaking news that star David Boreanaz (Angel) is looking forward to a series wrap, at least for his character, Booth. There no response yet, from Brennan's alter-ego, co-star Emily Deschanel (Providence). Bones season 11 premieres tonight on Fox. Is this the beginning of the end?
...if Boreanaz has his way, the 11th season of Bones will be the last. "For me, personally, I think it's time. I think that 11 seasons is great," he explained. "I mean, one season is great! I don't really count it as seasons but what we've given to the show and what we can do, for me it's great to see the show come to an end and do it the way we want to do »

2.12 Fallen Light
I’ve complained for a while that this show has the attention span of a drugged narcoleptic, but Fallen Light takes the tendency to spiral away from the central storytelling to new extremes.
It also continues to delude itself that viewers care about these characters, their supposed relationships and dubious motivations. This episode just about erased the last vestiges of my interest in any of their personalities, and next week I’d be rooting for the Master, if he actually can be bothered to make a rare appearance.
It starts incomprehensively by taking us back ten years to the point where Ephraim had a really bad hairpiece, presumably for some contractual obligation to Sean Astin, who returns as the affable, but now very dead and therefore irrelevant Jim Kent. »
