Gather round for a Geek Girl Riot comic book shop-style conversation about Peacemaker, The 355, and the train wreck that is Joss Whedon in his New York Magazine interview.
Peacemaker came out swinging on HBO Max recently and our Rioters are fired up and ready to talk all about it. They get into the characters, Easter eggs, and some of its more surprising themes. Sherin says of the series: “Show creator James Gunn creates a layered kind of pathos with Peacemaker that counteracts all of the wild, goofy goriness. It’s a nice balance of elements with an emotional core.” Watch new episodes of Peacemaker every Thursday.
Day kicks off the next topic by giving a brief intro about why the codename Agent 355 is significant in history and pop culture. Then our Rioters share their disappointment over the new film and discuss whether The 355 could be saved in any hypothetical future installments.
Joss Whedon Sucks
If you haven’t heard the news: Joss Whedon has had a long history of being awful, particularly to the women he’s worked with. New York Magazine recently featured an interview with Whedon (read the whole thing here) that left many of us disgusted—our hosts break it down with some fiery commentary.
Extra Innings: Yellowjackets + Reacher
Stay tuned for some extra love for Yellowjackets that didn’t make it into the live show. Sherin also shouts out Amazon’s new Reacher series, saying: “Surprisingly Amazon has a new series coming, based on the Jack Reacher character from the Lee Child novels. It was harsh but riveting. Reacher deals in death, my friends, and I enjoyed the mystery, the cast, and the head-busting action.” Watch Reacher on Amazon on February 4!
