Have You Checked Out My Riverdale Reactions?

Hi Internet People,

My most recent Riverdale Reactions video went up today and I always post them over on The Nerdy Girl Express, a bit like I did with my Kleffnotes Guide videos for different shows. Since I don’t really talk about them over here I thought I’d share a link to the playlist for all of them in case you want to check them out before the new episode airs on Thursday. I have a lot of fun filming them so I hope you like them!

I Tried, I Really Tried

Hi Internet People,

After watching season one of The Magicians I really wanted to check out the book series. I went to the library, I tracked it down, and I put off reading it for a week and a half. When I did start reading it the first thing that shocked me is that everyone in the book is way younger than the characters in the show. Now I read books and comics where the protagonists are younger than me, I don’t mind that at all. I just had an issue relating to the written characters as much as I did to the on screen characters.

Now for the big reveal, I only made it like 60 pages in and stopped reading it. What really bugged me was the description of Eliot and how he already revealed his “secret background” to Quinton. That totally threw me for a huge loop. I didn’t anticipate it happening so quickly because it seemed like a really big deal in the show that he didn’t want people to know who he really was. Julia also wasn’t at the test and I really like her character, I wanted more of her and Quinton together being excited by the appearance of magic. Then Penny’s intro was not what I wanted. I really like Penny in the show, he does stuff to piss people off, but he is still a developed character. Yes, I know I didn’t read that far, but I just couldn’t connect with it.

In the show I felt drawn in super quickly and I wanted to know everything about the world. With the book I just couldn’t bring myself to care as much about the characters. I was honestly just reading to see how things would differ from the show and I couldn’t even make it far enough to see classes or the action stuff. If I had read the book when I was younger, like high school or even in college, I think I would have liked it more. I also really think if I ‘d read it before watching the show it would have been something I’d loved. I can see why people would like it, but I just can’t read it now.

A Brief Thought on Cannibals

Hi Internet People,

Yesterday I watched Santa Clarita Diet and had a thought. I know that technically Sheila is a zombie, but since she isn’t eating brains I just keep thinking she’s a cannibal. Seriously I know she isn’t, but I started thinking about cannibals and thought it would be hilarious to do a comedy about suburban cannibals.

Let’s say the set up is similar, the wife suddenly starts craving human flesh. Instead of it being because of a sickness, maybe she accidentally eats something with human in it. Like someone makes her a smoothie, but accidentally a human finger gets in it. I haven’t thought about this in super detail, but I was trying to think of something. Instead of feeling sick she feels great and notices an increase in energy and suddenly has a weird desire for more human flesh. The setup could be anything, maybe a restaurant accidentally gives her some sort of tar-tar with bits of sous chef in it. Then the show focuses on her working to find more human to add to her meals.

If that wouldn’t work, I think it would be funny if the whole family were cannibals. They don’t think it’s weird and they used to have a supplier, but that person either dies or just can’t get them food in their new neighborhood. They wind up getting desperate and deciding to figure out a way to supply themselves. We’d still get awkward killing scenes and goofy antics, but the whole family would be involved. I’m not planning on writing this or even really going forward with it, but now I just really want to watch Hannibal.
