Another weekender

Yesterday, zoo.

Today, yard work.

We just got through the new Marvel series, The Defenders, last night. It was mildly entertaining but really, what was that plot? I think it mostly wasn’t helped by the fact that ninja societies as bad guys bore the absolute shit out of me, and Luke Cage was the only character and motivation I cared about even slightly.

For real. I didn’t like any of the other Defenders that much, and his goal was just more relatable than the giant “meh” that the other three offered. In terms of rooting for characters and plots, my list was 1) Cage, 2) Alexandra, distant-3) Everybody else in a big bland pile.

Now we’re watching Star Trek Enterprise for the first actual time. It’s not awful, although I still have to pretend that opening theme isn’t a thing. Man, humans are obnoxious.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
