We now understand how all of the characters in “Game of Thrones” have been getting around Westeros so quickly this season … they’ve been using the carpool lane.

Patty Jenkins Wants Male Director Pay, And She Deserves It
There’s no reason that a woman should be paid any less when she’s doing the same amount of work, or more, than a man. This has been a debate for a long, long time now, and it’s not as close to conclusion as many would like it to be. The main issue of course is that equal work should demand equal pay.

Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman, is currently holding out to receive the same amount of money

If you wanted to talk like a cynic you could say that The Osiris Child looks like another Us vs. Them kind of sci-fi movie. There is definitely the appearance of an elite sect that watches over the rest of the colony that lies below, at ground level, and their decisions seem based upon the “greater good” versus the downfall of order and the inclusion of chaos. In truth it looks like another version of Elysium, but fought with the intent to save those on the ground rather than displace those in the sky. So let’s let go of the

But this could be a year for PBS as well in a critically uneven field of contenders that pale compared to their Limited Series counterparts. The broadcast networks long ago virtually abandoned this format, which they once championed, so the… »
