Not much going on this weekend. Well actually there’s a lot going on – forest hike soon, then a birthday party, then board games, then a movie tomorrow – but not much to report right now.
ANZAC Day today, so I put up the ol’ flag. I always feel a bit funny putting up a foreign flag in our very Finnish piha. Even though I know our neighbours are family and super-cool, and are particularly respectful of our fallen veteran ancestors, it always makes me wonder if some angry perussuomalainen will stamp up and shout at me.
That’d be fun.
We finished watching Marvel’s Netflix original series Daredevil the other day, and started watching – at last! – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And I have to say, it’s more fun. Right from the start, more fun.
But that’s the great thing right now. There’s so much range to the comic book genre. We get dark, interesting stuff like Daredevil – I will certainly watch the next season with interest, and some of the scenes were just glorious – and then hilarious, fluffy Whedons-at-their-near-Whedonest stuff like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and we don’t need to choose one or the other. Fantastic time to be a comics fan.
 The musical arrest montage was fun to watch, although that makes it sound Benny Hill (that would also have been funny). It was an operatic piece and very nicely choreographed.
Not sure where they’re heading with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we’ve only seen three episodes so far. But I like it.
