I am a young African-American science-fiction author. In between writing, I talk about tv-shows like The Originals, Fear the Walking Dead, Westworld, and Game of Thrones. I also talk about life as an African-American blerd and writing.
I can be slowed down since I am only human, but my drive is eternal, I cannot be stopped.

My Issues With Being Mary Jane
There is no character development.
Mary Jane is still the same person she was in season one. She's almost 40 and she's still the same selfish self-involved person she was in season one.
And her family is still pretty oblivious to the fact that just because their daughter is successful doesn't mean she has other internal and emotional issues.
The writing this season has been lacking for me.
Niecey came to visit under false pretenses and complained the whole time.
"This place is a dump."
"Auntie this place is small."
"What you mean you don't have a car."
Girl, you live with your parents and just blew tens of thousands in cash because you couldn't keep your gums shut.
Mary Jane has basically switched out Kara for Justin. Every time she has a problem, Justin what should I do? Can we rename the show Being Justin?
The Tomi Lahren storyline was pretty predictable. I would hope that news stations don't run their business in a way that's this messy. Justin and Kara are both Senior producers now, instead of sending him away to chase some story give Kara back to Mary Jane.
I don't know about this show, I'm still watching only because of Michael Ealy. I wasn't expecting her to dump Lee that quickly like she's in high school. My patience for her and this strange writing- the whole thing with Mary Jane's brother and his "mentor" was odd. I would like to have more of a stable storyline in this show. Where are we going with this? She can't just be messy this whole time. It's a waste of Gabrielle Union and Michael Ealy's talents.
I think I like Kara's boyfriend's storyline the best. He's the only person in the show who I believe is self-aware and wants more out of his life.
Everyone else is just languishing and that's annoying to me.
Because of that guy. Well, if you're into handsome, nice guys, then whatever.
But what I don't get is the reasoning behind the twitter attacks. What's happening? Is there a "Yeah! I sure showed her!" moment that happens? Yup, you got her! You got her good! She won't be able to get up in the morning. Darn, your plan, you succeeded.
Sarcasm is so much harder to get across over the internet.
My point is this, Dear Danneel, don't give into the haters by answering them on twitter or anywhere else for that matter! But DO answer the people who actually cheer for you. Be happy! Happy early birthday. And don't delete your twitter account like you erased your facebook account last March (if that was really you). Keep sharing your puppy pictures with us and anything else you may see and feel the need to share. I'm a receptionist at an old folks home I need so…
I know. I know. There's only been two episodes and I'm already pretty annoyed with American Horror Story. Here are some suggestions as to what I would do.
1. Two-hour premiere for the first night if things are going to be this slow. Or back to back night premieres. Yes, we've had two gruesome deaths but we're not sure what killed them or we're supposed to question ourselves as to who killed them.
2. Shorter seasons. I'd be fine with a shorter season if it meant more action faster. I guess my millenial brain doesn't like the pace. So far Sarah Paulson is scared of stuff her wife doesn't see and Winter is a terrible baby sitter. Yawn.
This episode we pick up right where the last episode ended with Ally screaming. Which is a good portion of the first episode. And there's still no cult. We knew who the Coven, the Freak Show, the Hotel, the Roanoke Nightmare, Asylum and Murder House were. We knew where all of those things were and that messed…
This is one of my low key favorite movies. I say low key because it was rough, rough around the edges, it may be more enjoyable as a short story. But the fact that it was low budget was a plus in my opinion because it forces the cast and crew to be more creative and not go for the flashy-flashy. You have you to be a master story teller to convey your vision with very little. The story doesn't leave this one house which can come off as very hard do without making the story very stagnant.
NOW, I will say there are some times where I think the story fell off for a little while but I think it was a story that had a clear middle and end and I like those kinds of stories.
If you have read my earlier posts you'll know that I like stories that utilize the idea of multiverse theories. That's why I liked Stranger Things SO much. And it's also why I'm a little afraid of the Hadron Collider, but I digress.
I think this movie was great because it wasn't just about the…
