I've been experiencing a far number of rises, and falls in mood lately.
While not directly connected to the things I am going to talk about in this post, various outside influences can certainly effect how one feels, and I am no exception. In fact, I may well be the post child.
On the Up, and Up
Captain America: CIVIL WAR was AWE-Some! Or, as I like to call it, Black Panther and The Avengers. Black Panther was so fantastic, it has tripled my desire to see the solo Black Panther movie.
Did a mention Black Panther? 'Cause, ya'know, GODDAMN BLACK FREAKIN' PANTHER!
Supergirl has not been picked up by CBS for a second season.
It's been picked up by THE CW! That's right, Season 2 of the little, big superhero show that could will air on the same channel as Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and their much cooler brother The FLASH! Woot!
More crossovers? Oh I think so biznatches!
And now the bad news...
Down, Dooby Doo, Down, Down
Margaret 'Peggy' Carter, former Agent of the SSR, one of the originators of S.H.I.E.L.D., has had her program cancelled by the evil organization known as ABC, which is clearly a front for HYDRA. Not only has this diabolical group ended the career of Peggy Carter (played by the 'Is-There-Any-Way-In-The-Infinite-Possibilities-Of-Time-And-Space-That-You'd-Marry-Me' Hayley Atwell), but this despicable hive of dastardly despots has also cancelled...
I'm crying real tears here people. I don't know what else to say. I can't say I'm entirely surprised the show wasn't renewed, but I am very disappointed. It really started to get good, really good, in the last four or five episodes. I think it just wasn't what the majority of Muppets fans expected, or wanted. A shame it won't get a chance to be something else. Something new that they might like also.
I hope Disney/ABC gives the Muppets another shot. A difference approach perhaps. We'll see.
On that note...
Today marks 26 years after the passing of Jim Henson. It's always such a heavy-hearted day for me.
Here is an excellent tribute from Jarrod Fairclough over on The Muppet Mindset.
Me? I'm going to try really hard to get happy.
Wish me luck.
