Joss Whedon stuff (I'm terrible at titling posts)

Joss Whedon has been doing the rounds promoting Much Ado About Nothing (now that he's a famous Hollywood director, he's doing a lot more of these).

This Q&A, like pretty much every one of them he's done, also covers Firefly and Avengers. This one is very interesting:
On the nebulous cinematic rights to the character Quicksilver, and whether Bryan Singer's decision to include him in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will affect his inclusion in "Avengers 2"…

"And so continues the Q and not-A… That's not something I can really talk about, but Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are going to be in the movie and they're going to be AWESOME."

Dan Harmon returning?

The rumor is picking up steam today that Dan Harmon will return as Community's show runner for the upcoming season 5. On the one hand, YAY DAN HARMON!! On the other hand, I feel kinda bad for David Guarascio and Moses Port. I just hope season 5 is good.

Something Old, Something New

I refrained myself from writing a blog post last week because I thought I'd just wait a week for the conclusion before forming opinions. For some reason, forming opinions is a pretty big thing for me and I find it exhausting. So I waited (or procrastinated, whichever word you prefer).

"Something Old" was an okay episode. Except for the ending. Well, a little bit more than just the ending. I didn't like that they made Barney an insensitive fiancé when we had been shown, numerous times, that Barney is actually a very caring friend. The fact that he completely disregarded Robin's call was...disappointing. And, they had to top it off with Ted showing up all Ted-like. Seriously, we're not over this? I gave it the benefit of the doubt, and decided against going on a long rant about the whole "Ted and Robin, maybe?" thing. Maybe they didn't mean it the way I thought they did, the hand holding thing.

Unfortunately, they confirmed it in "Something New" that Ted still has a part of him thinking that Robin could be the love of his life. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME TED?! How long has it been? How many times have we been over this? And we're still not done yet? But, most significantly, it cheapens "The Robin" in which one of the steps was for Ted to tell Robin that Barney was getting engaged (to Patrice) because that meant that Ted was over Robin. Well, what now? That was nothing? I just... I thought it was over.

There's a theory that the titles "Something Old" and "Something New" refer to Ted's love life -- to Robin and the mother, specifically. SPOILER ALERT! They showed the mother at the end of "Something New" so the theory makes a lot of sense and hopefully right. I don't know if I can handle season 9 starting with Ted still hung up on Robin marrying Barney.

It actually surprised me how many fans care so much about what the mother looks like. I mean, just the appearance of her. I don't get it. I honestly don't get it. What she looks like is THAT important?Someone argued that what she looked like IS important, because the show itself has been teasing us with it all: the leg, the arm, the yellow umbrella covering her face, etc. Well, none of those interested me back then either. Then again, to me, HIMYM has really been The Barney Show since But seriously, someone tell me why seeing her face is so damn significant?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Extended Trailer

Can't wait! Is Coulson going to be a big part of the whole show, or just the pilot where they explain what happened to him?

Pickups, renewals, cancellations

This past week has been insanely emotional for me. It's mostly because of all the things happening at Manchester United. However, this past weekend, TV networks announced their fall schedule; they announced new shows they picked up, the lucky ones renewed, and which ones are cancelled.

I'm incredibly upset that Go On was cancelled. More upset than I imagined I would. I was convinced that the show was safe. Not completely safe -- this is NBC we're talking about -- but I was pretty damn sure. And then the cancellation news came pretty early on Friday. It's a shame, really. Yes, the first few episodes weren't that great, but shouldn't that be expected for new shows trying to find their footings? The second half of the season was amazing, and it turned to be my favorite comedy show. The show had great character growth, and it turned into a very solid ensemble show. More importantly, WHY DID YOU TAKE MATTHEW PERRY AWAY FROM ME, NBC?! Seriously, though, the more I think about it, the more upset I get about this. I really am going to miss these people! Hopefully Matthew Perry can get another project/show soon, because I want him on my TV! Or maybe he can guest star on Parenthood as Lauren Graham's new love interest, now that Jason Ritter's new show, Friends and Family, is picked up. Or maybe Go On can get picked up by another network the way Cougar Town did.

According to Twitter, NBC has announced that they're cancelling Go On. I really enjoyed the show! It's really a shame that it's a ratings game. Really hope that Matthew Perry finds a new show/project soon; I want him on TV!

Still no words on Community's fate...
