One of my favorite TV shows, like most of my favorites was geared to a younger viewing audience. Though I think quickly the creators realized that is show drew in an older crowd, yes some kids did like to watch it but i think college aged kids liked it more. It’s not hard to see why, unlike traditional kid cartoons which most of the time do not have a real long term plot or goal this one had many sub-plots and one major plot per season. Not to mention character growth and relationship changes, between not only main characters but the others in the show as well.
The original team was just Aqualad- Kaldur’ahm, Kid Flash- Wally and Robin-Dick, they wanted to be more then just the sidekick label that they had been stuck with. They quickly add to their team with Superboy- Conner (a clone using superman’s DNA) and Miss Martian- M’gann (niece of Martian Man Hunter) and finally Artemis( not in the picture above) That of course is just season one but that season is so crucial to the team becoming what they have always wanted to be real heros, not sidekicks.
Though i have heard many people complain of the relationship of my favorite characters Wally and Artemis, but I adore it they are Spitfire and hope the writers intend to fix what they messed with at the end of season 2.
The change of the characters between the two seasons is at first confusing but as the season unfolds everything starts to become clear on what happened in the years that were skipped over in the seasons. I am VERY excited and happy that they are finally coming out with a season 3, and I still upset that is taken this long to make this season. I have googled and researched the reasons and one of the reasons was their toy sales were not high enough to keep the show. SMH I have very high hopes for this season.
I’m not gonna lie when my teacher brought up the fact that we would have to keep up a blog i dreaded it. Now that i have been doing this for a few weeks i have found i actually enjoy writing these little posts it’s almost therapeutic. This blog has actually helped me with a my writers block I’ve been having for the longest time.
It has renewed my love for writing. This blog has been keeping it light because their is so much negativy in the world i don’t want to add to it. I just want to speak of good things, so politics are just something i don’t want to speak of here. Now world events or events that are good that happen in the United States I will probably touch on now and again. I will stay on the “Nerdy” side of things cause that is who I am.I love tv shows, movies, books and even video games. This goes from cartoons to heartfelt movies. I hope to gain some followers people who enjoy and gain something from my posts.
Just a little about me I’m a nerdy girl, who is a little forgetful, and can usually be found listening to my music that ranges from classical to mainstream. I am just trying to make it through school and finish my first book.
So I’m gonna go a little girl power on today’s post, talking about Female superheros finally getting their time and not just as part of a mostly male team or as a sidekick to the bigger Male hero. Don’t get me wrong I like many a male super hero, but i think it’s not only great but important that little girls have super heroes that they can look up to and relate themselves to. With TV shows like Supergirl( for the older girls) and DC superhero girls( for younger girls) and The Wonder woman movie that is coming out.
As a girl who likes cartoons and comic books, it was something i could not openly share without getting some stigma about being into something that can be considered sexist until recently. I do believe that men and women are equal and yes there are things that men can do that we can’t, but i don’t think we should limit girls and their dreams to try.
So most everyone has seen, read or at least heard about the tale of Beauty and the Beast. Most commonly the Disney animated movie that was released in the early 90’s. Now Disney has begun to make some of their original movies into live action films much to the delight of my a childlike movie-goer like myself. I do plan on going to see this live action film and my hopes are high for a fantastic movie with the star talent they have going for them not to mention the superior effects if the previews are any clue. Emma Watson is one of my favorite actress and i think she will fill the role of Belle beautifully, Dan Stevens will play the Beast (Prince Adam) I am not familiar with his work so I look forward to seeing him. Luke Evan will be killing it as Gaston the egotistical villain. I am so excited about this movie and I am hoping i will not be let down with the musical numbers.
