The Leftovers is a HBO series based on the book of the same name. It’s a radical take on the Christian concept of ‘rapture’ as it explores the aftermath of a similar event. It’s quite depressing & frustrating overall but certainly the portrayal of the cult group Guilty Remnant is the perfect encapsulation of how extreme Christian groups work - the arrogance, the self-righteousness & lack of love & concern, all in the name of God is rather spot-on. Four episodes in, it ain’t easy viewing but worth the annoyance. Just about.

Concerning MDA’s ban on the latest Archie Comic for depicting same sex marriage - did MDA also ban Astonishing X-Men #51 for a similar depiction? If not, why the inconsistency? So, does MDA allow gay characters to be depicted in pop culture? Perhaps only if they are not depicted as doing normal human things like falling in love, getting married, having families etc OR maybe this is limited to comic books only, which is still consider a children’s medium. Who the hell knows?

Currently vogue in super hero comics - turn heroes into villains. In AvX, it was Cyclops being imbued with the Phoenix force, now in Original Sin, Nick Fury is revealed to be the big bad wolf… and yes, Alan Moore was ahead of the curve years ago when he made Ozymandias the villain in Watchmen. Ho hum.

The Invisible Woman explains she didn’t read any Fantastic Four comics because director Josh Trank told her the movie isn’t based on an existing story.

The more one learns about the new Fantastic Four movie, the worse it sounds. So, Trank feels that it’s not important for an actor to at least read a FF comic at least once - cos it isn’t based on existing stories? Is it even based on the comic at all in any way? Mm

Series in limbo? SONY should just return Spidey to Marvel. Of course, you and I know that that will never happen. Wishful thinking…
