How do you create change? That’s one of the questions at the heart of Moxie, the story of Vivian (Hadley Robinson), a young woman whose high school is, in a word, toxic and the girls of which are disempowered and objectified. The boys literally create a list ranking each of the girls for their best “attribute”, like biggest breasts or “most bangable”, or in the case of Vivian, “most obedient.”
The answer, it turns out, is “however you can.” Tired of existing in a world so toxic, and after both being inspired by a new girl in class and by finding a suitcase full of mementoes from her mother, Lisa’s (Amy Poehler) past, she finds a way to create change with an anonymously produced ‘zine she calls “Moxie”.
Another week, another adventure with Coulson and Company. As always I’ll be discussing what I feel are the important points in the episode and am assuming you have watched it already. Naturally spoilers will abound.
Ok it has been a while since I wrote about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s been nearly a month actually and in that time there have been two new episodes.
There are a few reasons for this. The first is that I was on holiday. The second is that, as much as I hate to say it, I haven’t been enjoying the show. So here’s a brief recap of the episodes we missed and the some discussion about the state of the show and where it’s going.
Another week, another adventure in the Marvel universe. This week’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a few twists and turns, ish. As with last week I’m not going to do a straight recap but rather just talk about the key points as I see them, things of interest that I’ve noticed, and anything else that I find cool (or not).
This will assume you’ve watched the show so yes of course there will be spoilers.
I’ve been on holiday so my plan to start recapping Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. is now a week late. That being said, I now have two episodes to talk about and that’s going to work mostly because these episodes function as two halves of a whole.
I’m not going to do a straight recap of each episode each week but rather talk about what I feel the key points are, a few things I’ve noticed, and anything that I find cool (or not so cool) in general.
There will be spoilers so make sure you’ve watched before you read. And with that, let’s get this show on the road!!
