DC Fanboy Nerdvana

These just dropped today:

When Rory from Doctor Who showed up as a Time Master in this trailer, my Whovian daughter said “I have to sit down.” She was verklempt.

And I thought this trailer looked like a pretty respectable take on Supergirl. Certainly better than the Helen Slater movie.

As I’ve said before, I’m a DC fan all the way. I only follow three shows: Arrow, Flash, and Gotham. I’m reluctant to commit to two more, but these just look like loads of fun, and I gotta support the team. With the DC movies in the hands of Zack Snyder and his grittifying filter that makes everything look dark and broody, TV is the only place where DC gets a good treatment.

“I Am Dog!”

This is Ivy.

This is Ivy. She is a Mastiff-Chihuahua. I have the papers to prove it.

IVY: Oh please dad, I have to go out! I have to go out SO BAD! I have to pee! Pleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease!

[kind-hearted human lets dog out in the backyard]

IVY. Oh my! GRASS! When did this get here?! I love to roll in it!

[rollrollroll]

Isn’t grass the best! It’s so great! I’m going to do this forever!

[stops rolling, sticks nose in air]

Do you smell that?! Does that smell like the best! I think someone 1.3 miles away just started grilling a hamburger. Isn’t hamburger the best!

Oh look chickens! Aren’t chickens the best?! I’m going to see what they’re up to!

[chickens flee]

Oh look a bee! I’m going chase it! Grrr! I’m fierce and will get that bee!

[freezes, pointing in the distance with a one upraised paw]

Did you hear that?! I think a moth farted on the next block! Let’s go see! I must do this because I am dog!

[frustrated human chases dog back inside]

[five minutes pass]

IVY: Oh please dad, I have to go out! I have to go out SO BAD! I have to pee! Pleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease!
