  1. GypsyLibrarian added a post in a topic Dr. Strange *SPOILERS*   

    I have to admit I was a bit confused regarding the amount of time that was supposed to have passed while Strange was "training". Am I right that The Ancient One said something about time passing/not passing when you're in the mirror dimension where we're led to believe he spent much of his time practicing? Obviously he was gone for a while, but it still felt like he didn't spend enough time, his photographic memory not-withstanding. There are obvious similarities to be made between Strange and Tony Stark, but honestly I prefer Strange being an asshole to Ironman being an asshole, at least at this point. Overall I really enjoyed the movie, the visuals were spectacular, and I totally agree with @matthewvose that the use of deductive reasoning makes this film stand out from your average comic book film. Having him use, then remove the Time Gem points to a character that is still developing and learning, which I really do appreciate because it seems like too often we get the "learn the things, now you are an EXPERT and the BEST" trope.

    I thought they made some interesting character choices throughout the series-I personally would have enjoyed a show just about Pam. She was by far my favorite vampire and I think there was some real depth to her character, plus Kristin Bauer-VonStratten is phenomenal. I would say what the show suffered from the most was too much going on, focusing on big showy plots and guest actors each season when there was a lot to work with in some of the characters if they would have chosen to develop them.

    I am terrible at introductions...
    Hi everyone, I'm Rachel, all over Twitter as @GypsyBookNerd. Proud #oddwonk #podwonk and general dabbler in TV show nerdiness. I discovered Story Wonk with The Scot & The Sassenach early season 1, pretty much became obsessed with Dusted, joined the TSATS live-tweets with season 2, and when We Can Do This All Day started it was pretty much the end of pretending to be normal on the internet. :-)
    I interact with the community on Twitter and decided I should probably do this Story Wonk Forum thing so here I am!
    I grew up watching Star Trek: TNG with my Dad, who grew up watching Doctor Who. I read The Hobbit at the age of 4, LOTR at the age of 8, David Eddings in high school. Fantasy, sci-fi and good stories are my favorite things.
