shinyjenni: Close up of Jaylah from Star Trek Beyond (jaylah)

1. I went to see Cursed Child the other week! I had very few expectations going in, other than that the staging would be fantastic (which it was), but friends, I loved it. I mean, I'm sure there are criticisms to be made of it? But I just enjoyed it so much. (Not least because I went to see it with [personal profile] raven, so we got to talk about our reactions and take photos of each other with our respective house banners. ♥) I laughed, I cried, I never knew what was going to happen, it was excellent. I'm torn between "I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN" and "I don't want to risk diluting this wonderful experience". I do want to read the script, though, which I haven't yet done.


2b. I saw Star Trek Beyond a year ago yesterday, so have now been at Peak Star Trek Joy for a whole year and it's been amazing.

3. THIRTEEN. I didn't really know who Jodie Whittaker was, so it took a moment to sink in, but then I watched the teaser and suddenly had all these emotions in my eyes. And she looks so Doctorish! A little weird and otherworldly and mischievous. I can't wait. It's a shame that we still have a white actor playing the Doctor (my top picks for Fourteen: Meera Syal, Indira Varma, Josette Simon), but this means so much to me even so, not least because I was so sure it was going to be yet another white dude. Also, I watched a few episodes last season for Bill, who is wonderful, and I'm crossing my fingers that she'll be Thirteen's companion, whilst also resigning myself to the likelihood that we'll get a solo boy companion instead.

4. Character announcements for Young Justice season three! I've always found Young Justice a bit hit and miss (I still haven't seen the last three episodes), but with enough hits to keep me more or less on board. ALSO. STEPH. STEPH IN A FORMAT I CAN VID. YESSSSSSSS. Sadly no Cass, though. :( On the other hand, my three faves from the old guard (Artemis, Dick and Kaldur) are all returning, hurray! And I'm really pleased to see Arrowette too. I'm also holding out a teeny tiny bit of hope that now they're free of the constraints of whatever network they were on before, they might be able to include queer characters, as originally planned.

Sadly, Pearl Mackie confirmed at SDCC (as you've probably heard by now, but anyway) that 'Twice Upon a Time' will be her last story. This is a shame, both for performer and character and because we won't see how Bill would develop under a different production team.

Yaaayyy! I saw Cursed Child a few weeks ago and loved it as well. I immediately started scheming to get my family to see it when they visit next summer (only possible if we don't sit together, I think).

The podcast Witch Please (a feminist podcast about Harry Potter, if you're not already familiar with it I highly recommend it!) has a great episode about Cursed Child. It came out recently so it should be easy to find. FYI in case this would bum you out: they read the script before seeing the play and didn't like it, and they do talk about that, although the focus of the podcast episode is definitely on how good the play is. Interestingly, there was a complete change of cast between when they saw the play and when I saw it, but their descriptions of the acting still rang true!

Wasn't it great? I'm so glad we got to see it together and squee.
