What did you think of Tangled?!?!

Also hooray Parks and Rec! I don't have a lot of friends who watch it so this is exciting. I just want to hug Leslie.

Tangled is one of my favourite Disney Princess movies hands down. I love the fact that the romance part is between two fully realized characters who fall for each other by knowing each other. And that Rapunzel drives the entire movie through her own decisions. And Maximus!

Basically I think it's an awesome movie.

And I'm really enjoying Parks and Rec! I started on season two following recommendations, and I think all the characters are great.

Aww hooray so glad you like it (and Parks and Rec)! It's weird, I liked it in theatres but after rewatching it recently I LOVED it.

I think it's worth going back and watching season one later, just for additional character stuff (mostly with Ann and Andy), but yeah, starting with season two was a good call. It's such a sweet show.

Maid of Honor! Am I the only one that thought that they were trying to throw in subtext with Diana and Princess Audrey? (or heck, it was a lot more over than simply subtext!)

I really liked Hearts & Minds too, especially because I loved the Shayera & John dynamic. Though since I've never been much into the GL comics, I'm not sure if they butchered the characterization of Katma Tui or not.

You're making me want to get my JL and JLU DVDs out again :)

What did you think of Tangled?

I loved the Diana/Audrey subtext, but this is also the first episode I started to get on the Bruce/Diana ship. Not that the two are incompatible!

I don't know anything about comics Katma Tui, but I did like her in this. At least she dont' a real characterization which is more than AU Star Sapphire has (what IS her deal, anyway?)

Tangled is one of my all time favourite Disney Princess movies for many many reasons, but mostly because Rapunzel is one of the few princesses to get almost complete agency, driving the plot with her own decisions. And both Pascal and Maximus are awesome animal companions.

Ohh I loved Bruce and Diana. I think you're right that this was the first episode where they really became a likable relationship. Their flirting in the party scene was absolutely adorable.

The only thing I know for sure about comics Katma Tui was that she and John Stewart got married and had a pretty good romance from what I know. So I can see where fans of her from the comic might have felt ripped off. However, I just adored John and Shayera so much and I thought that Katma Tui was an interesting character and was used well as they used her.

The Star Sapphire thing was kind of cheap. She was just a background villain in a few of the later JLU episodes too. She didn't get characterization at all. Which is a shame because she's a pretty interesting character from what I've seen of her in other media. (though not the GL live action movie. BAH)

I really did like Tangled too. I like that Disney is getting better about their princesses and giving them more girlpower, for lack of a better word. Mulan was pretty amazing for that as well.

How are you finding Elementary?

Also if you are on a Jane Austen kick, book of the week on 4 is all about her. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qftk

I am loving Elementary! I'm no Sherlock Holmes fan, but I am really digging the dynamic between this Holmes and Watson, and the plots are nicely ridiculous. I'm primarily watching it for the that relationship more than anything else.

It reminds me more of Jonathan Creek than any Doyle adaptation I've seen, and that's no bad thing!

Cheers for the BotW recommendation. It's more an obsession with P&P due to Lizzie Bennet, but I will give it a listen.

Jonathan Creek? Might have to give it a try then.

Just in a case of "quirky guy solves overly complex murders with his awesome take-no-shit female sidekick" more than anything else.

well if the female side-kick is awesome then how can I resist? :D
