Link: ‘Wynonna Earp’s’ Secret Weapon: Feminism in a Demon-Haunted World

From Kat Jetson of The Hollywood Reporter:

Link: ‘Wynonna Earp’s’ Secret Weapon: Feminism in a Demon-Haunted World
The July 21 installment (“Everybody Knows”) effectively serves as a 101 class in feminism, highlighted by the revelation that someone other than Doc could possibly be the father of Wynonna’s (Melanie Scrofano) child. Viewers soon learn that that someone is a misogynistic, Revenant-sized jerk. The episode shines a spotlight on the power and confidence that come from being an unapologetically flawed and emotional woman with all manner of desires and needs. A woman who is able to carry herself with dignity and respect and refuses to allow the judgment that comes with ladies’ choice, all while disarming every argument one would have against her by way of a bad-ass, slow-motion strut.

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

Link: Dark Matter: Ellen Wong on why Misaki doesn’t consider herself a villain
“I feel that it’s always coming from a place of needing to make a decision for the greater good and sometimes it sucks to have to lose things along the way, but that’s part of war and that’s part of it being your home and your people in the long run. That’s my perspective.” Continue reading.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Wynonna Earp: Michael Eklund explores a new side to Bobo Del Rey
“The thing about Wynonna Earp is that it’s family-oriented and everyone is very close, which I love. It’s like they invite you, ‘would you be willing to come back?’ It’s like an invitation back to the party. I said ‘of course I’d like to come back! I’ve been waiting for this a whole season.’ They present it like ‘maybe you don’t want to,’ but of course I do! I want to play Bobo! So when I got the call I jumped at it.” Continue reading.

Comments and queries for the week of August 18

Fans react to Saving Hope‘s series finale, Part 3

I hated the ending. I wanted to see the love they had for each other and, finally, have a long life together married. Instead, Charlie dies. I loved this show, please bring it back it was the best show on Tuesday nights to look forward to. All the good shows get taken off the air; not a good idea. Tuesday nights will never be the same. —Joann

This show had great potential but took some ridiculous/illogical (unrealistic) plot twists. The final episode—killing off Charlie—ruined the whole show and made everything that came before it hollow and a waste of time. This is not Shakespeare; movies/television of this type are escapism, and the last thing people want in a show like this is the permanent sense of disappointment associated with the show by ruining all the time and emotion invested in the previous episodes with a final, dreadful, tragic, unhappy ending, like in the show The Wonder Years. People deserve the happy ending in entertainment that they seldom get in life, and when they don’t get it, it is a betrayal. I did not see every episode and was fully prepared to buy the series on DVD. I won’t waste my time and money: if I want to experience the pain and disappointment every episode will be tainted with from now on by knowing the final outcome of the series, I can just experience it every day in real life. —R

Terrible ending. Why would anyone hope after that ending? Too many bad things happening to this couple and you end it by actually killing their lives together. Hope … I think not. Worst ending ever. Forget the reruns. —Gloria

Having to get up at 5 a.m. for work after watching Saving Hope til wee hours of the morning was tough but I couldn’t miss an episode. I was hoping that Charlie’s death was a dream and that he really didn’t die. I truly hope that the show’s creators come up with another show of this stellar quality. I am so sad that it had to end this way. Thanks to all for keeping us entertained. There is no other show out there that can touch it. —Kathleen

Great show … I will miss it. Very sad ending. Maybe it might come back with the child having the gift after the accident??? —Valerie

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

Link: Dark Matter’s Natalie Brown on her expanded role in Season 3
“I think that things were a little rough for her on her home planet, so this was a much more hospitable place that she always dreamed of being. Although it’s interesting to me that she can create anything she wants, and all she seems to want is a soft place to sleep and somewhere welcoming for Three that’s green and lush. I feel like her planet was so overmined that what she really missed was clean air that she wasn’t able to breathe, so she gave herself plenty of greenery and oxygen.” Continue reading.
