Welcome back, y'all. Hope everyone who celebrated something had a nice holiday. I spent the week at my parents' house, with a brief foray to New York to see First Date (more on that in a separate post, and as soon as I figure out how to get pictures off my new phone and into a post) and utterly failed to keep up with the Internet. So here are some links that you probably already saw a week ago.

* A Sherlock minisode in preparation for the new season starting in January.

* The Americans announced a premiere date for season 2. Also, a new trailer!

Jennifer Lawrence is taking over the world because of her incredible talent, not her propensity for fart jokes. Duh.

* Neil Gaiman talked about strong female characters and why Buffy was so good at it (hint: it has nothing to do with physical strength).

* I'm sure some of you had figured this out already, but apparently Loki is literally in his rebellious teenager phase.

* The cast of House of Lies did a long-form improv at Upright Citizens Brigade. House of Lies is not the greatest show, but it does have a great cast (Kristen Bell! Don Cheadle!) and this involves mpreg and kittens and other weird shit.

* This is really interesting - did you know that you physically feel different emotions in different parts of your body?

* The "Call Me Maybe" chick is taking over for Laura Osnes as Cinderella on Broadway. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH "NO" IN THE WORLD.

* The Vampire Diaries is adding a gay character. I hope he lasts longer than any of their (non-Bonnie) characters of color...

So tell me what I missed! Tell me about your holiday! Or whatever else you want!

I listened to the BtVS podcast yesterday/day before that, and though it was nothing new, it was quite good and generally on point. There was more focus on s1-3 than everything that came after which made me a bit :/ though.

I was glad to hear Neil Gaiman got it--though am amused that the words spoken by (popular white male) him are the ones that make an article.

That article is on point about Jennifer Lawrence. I still think there are a dozen other telling reasons why she's better liked than someone like (the painfully socially anxious) Kristen Stewart, but her resume is no joke.

I love Neil Gaiman, but I am pretty over that dreaded adjective constantly thrown around to describe female characters fandom hates marginally less than others.
