We are so excited to announce our new podcast: THE FANGIRLY SHOW!
For our first episode EVER (!), we talk about superheroes on TV and the offerings brought to us by Marvel (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Daredevil, Agent Carter) and DC (Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, and soon Supergirl).

My Dearest Ellen,
Gracious, how long it’s been! Why, I don’t believe I’ve had the pleasure of your radiant company since we danced together at your brother’s wedding. Too long by half, fair cousin.
(I do apologize for the inclusion of Sam’s wayward eyebrow. Those things have no concept of personal space.)
Enclosed is a picture of me, being just too Kevin Bacon for my own damn good.
As so much has happened since we last tore it up, I beg only a few short lines to fill you in…
I started taking better care of myself.
I’m seeing someone new…
I’ve made Pinterest my prison wife.
I have resolved, many times, to watch less TV and dedicate myself to my studies. A resounding triumph, obviously.
And now I’ve moved home for the summer, where accommodations are decidedly less expensive.
I hope that this letter finds you well, and still the baddest of mama jamas.
I’ve also included an artists rendering of what you and I will look like in 20 years. I hope you are as trilled with the results as I am.
I spent my weekend watching all Netflix’s first collaboration with Marvel and maybe you did, too or maybe you have more of a life than I do and spent your weekend being social and getting outside, but I digress, as I usually do with these things, but if you haven’t checked out this new series I definitely think you should give this a watch because it completely redeems the character from his previous, lesser, portrayals and this is quite a departure for Marvel because it is grisly, dark, and layered, without ever having the DC and that is something I can get behind because if you like superheroes and/or Breaking Bad this just might be the show for you because it puts a troubled hero with some super powers (keen senses due to radiation, which is pretty par for the course in comic books, apparently) into the seedy underbelly of the crime world and it is fantastic with really great performances all around but especially by Charlie Cox as the titular masked vigilante and some of the most kick A fight sequences that I have seen and certainly that I have seen on TV (well, Netflix).
Verdict: Only you can know if this could be up your alley, but if it even sort of sounds like it might, you need to check it out.
