Earth Station MCU Episode 40: Agent Carter, “Hollywood Ending”

 

All good things must come to an end, and this week we say goodbye to Peggy, Jarvis, Howard and the SSR crew for another year…and possibly for good. John and Jen talk about the finale of Agent Carter, “Hollywood Ending”, but manage to squeeze in “The Martian,” “Flash,” and more. The future is uncertain, but that cliffhanger at the end–!! Will Thompson survive? Will Peggy and Sousa end up together? Will Whitney claw her face apart and end up as Madame Masque? We’ll have our fingers crossed that ABC decides Agent Carter deserves a third season.  Of course, there’s news to talk about as well, including official confirmation of Ward’s new identity, Fitzsimmons and Selvig crossing over to the comics, the renewal of SHIELD, and speculations on the new J. Jonah Jameson.

But first, John and Jen talk about the new Iron Fist, the latest Daredevil trailer, James Gunn’s thoughts on the industry reaction to Deadpool, and Anthony Mackie trying to walk back his big spoiler about Civll War.

Oy. Some days the audio gods are kind, and some days they are not. And sometimes you leave the pop filter off the mic, and it sounds like you’re recording in a wind tunnel.Mea cupla, Marvel Universe. Fortunately, there’s a lot of fun stuff to talk about, including “Guardians” casting, James Gunn sightings in Atlanta, Anthony Mackie’s on-air slip-up, Ward’s fate on Agents of SHIELD, and …how much longer is it until Daredevil is back?

We also review the double episode of Agent Carter, including “The Life of the Party” and “Monsters”. The costuming is gorgeous, Dottie is up to her old tricks, and Whitney reaches full-blown super-villain status. Was this a bust or best episode ever? Tune in to find out!

Earth Station MCU Episode 37: ” The Atomic Job”

ESMCU Episode 37: The Atomic Job

Let’s pour one out for Jen’s deceased computer…and celebrate the return of ESMCU! In this episode, John and Jen talk about the future of Agent Carter, MCU ads at the Super Bowl, and a monumental feat of Lego engineering. This week’s adventure with Agent Carter and the SSR crew had slapstick, a heist (making the Leverage-style title appropriate), and the addition of Rose and Samberly to the SSR team, as well as an end to the Sousa/Violet ‘ship. On a scale of one to five Pink Monstrosities, how would you rate this episode?

Cosplayer Harassment – A Growing Concern

This year I attended my first MomoCon, one of the fastest growing cons in the Southeast for animation, comics and gaming, and I was floored at the amazing cosplay I saw. So many fantastic costumes, and often on kids and teens who hadn’t yet reached the drinking age. The attention to detail was phenomenal, and the skill required for the makeup, props and costuming amazing. However, after the con a video began circulating online of a cosplayer, Luna Lanie, who had been harassed at the convention, and I saw it in many places on Facebook and G+. The accusations she made were concerning – she was harassed by con-goers, but what concerned me more at the time was the accusation of misconduct on the part of the convention staff.
