Bought this because it looked fun and like it would be about women.
Which, yeah, ish.
But it was mostly Being Funny, and it seemed to not like women very much unless they were hitting things. Read more... )


So that's 5/18 stories that were better than okay.


Buuuut an overall impression of :-/
and no particular desire to buy the other books in the series.


Think it's just not to my tastes.

I used the Telephone
for the second week running
and the thing I was trying to arrange is arranged :-)

It has on several previous occasions got this far without in fact ending up happening
but
I did a difficult and it worked.


I win :-)

I am watching Continuum some more.
It remains smart and twisty
but it's bugging me that she hasn't been using the truth serum when it would be really useful and I think she still has the whatsit that administered it.

I mean, there might be an in universe reason, but I can't remember it, and the plot would be really different if.

so, nearly smart, definitely twisty.

After seeing two seasons and having a think I'm frustrated with Continuum for the usual reasons.

Like, I thought it was about Kiera Cameron. She's on the cover. She's in all the episodes.
But it's like the story doesn't even know how to be about a woman.
So she's isolated in a sea of men, all her significant relationships are with men or dead, every character who gets properly developed and elaborated on is a man, and women get fridged or turn out to be evil or just kind of fade away.

Most frustrating is I like it plenty
but
this thing where women don't exist in networks of women needs to be fixed.

Everywhere.

Soonest.
