Jane Austen. Fan Culture. Romance. Wit. This web series give me everything I need. And the fact that it was written by Fangirly’s own Ellen Lloyd only makes The Cate Morland Chronicles more obsess-able. Ells, I love this and I like this.
Am I the only one who cannot stop watching this trailer? Not that I’m, you know, TRYING to stop watching this trailer…
This… sorta speaks for itself.
Check out the amazing trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story down below and if you have time read some of the utterly laughable comments from whiny white boys about how there is going to be another female led Star Wars movie. As if you guys haven’t dominated enough movies for 127 lifetimes. And I resent the argument that some of them make about how these movies are just Twilight movies now. A female led fantasy/sci-fi does not immediately devolve into that. Geez! I just can’t.
In case you’ve been living under a literal or metaphorical rock.
If you caught our last podcast, you may remember that Pee-Wee is much beloved in our family. Speaking for my own nuclear family, we just flat out love Pee-Wee. My brother and I would wake up early to eat cereal and watch reruns of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, it is mandatory every year that we watch the Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Christmas special (because it is amazing), and Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure is a family classic that is oft-quoted (“Paging Mr. Herman.”).
This new trailer doesn’t completely have me sold, but if Netflix is giving Reubens and Co. the creative liberties to rekindle the comedic sensibilities of the Pee-Wee of yore, sign me up.
February 5, ladies and open-minded gentlemen. The day that Jane Austen’s original vision for her timeless classic Pride and Prejudice finally comes to fruition. I present to you selected clips from a love story for the ages, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
