loving idiots... She's orange.

The excuse I've seen is that they were mad that it was a lovely costume and wig. Also they were mad that the character was wearing some kind of fur coat in what was clearly some sort of disguise/not the standard outfit Starfire would be always wearing. Like none of these people have even watched an episode of Legends of Tomorrow. Kitschy "disguises" and terrible wigs are a feature of the Arrowverse, not a bug. Morons

Yeah that dollar store lace front and raggedy fur coat are my only Starfire complaints tbh.

Anna Diop is really pretty and these fan manips/art look better than what they did to her 🙈🙈🙈

Again, I like Legends explanations for budget scrimping better:

“Why doesn’t Ray use the ATOM suit every episode?” / “He’s an idiot.”

“Why doesn’t Nate steel up literally every time he has to fight anything?” / “He’s an idiot.”

“Why doesn’t Firestorm just transmute everything that’s a problem?” / “Jax and Stein are idiots.”

“Why does Mick burn everything?” / “Fire’s dirt cheap.”

Hey now, Jax and Stein aren't idiots. They just conveniently get sent off to do separate tasks every episode.

racists using the criticisms of poc to make it seem like the reason they're upset isn't actually racism is a really old trope

A lot of lovely hair/wardrobe depts like to throw cheap lace fronts on black actresses because they don't know how to style black hair and I loving hate it. It's lazy and it doesn't fill me with confidence.

If the raggedy coat is some sort of Party Monster style Everyone thinks it's ugly but she loves it because she doesn't know better joke, that would be awesome and actually funny, but I'm not filled with confidence because of issue #1 and there are some other issues that make me worried for misogynoir reasons that I would willing to expand on later today in that thread but 🤷🏾‍♀️

Or she doesn't want to color and destroy her hair.

I mean that doesn't excuse a bad wig, but that's a bad color to dye.

It's certainly age blocked, so maybe you can't see it if you're not logged in?

Happy to see Michael Jai White back. Still sad he didn't get to be Spawn in the new remake they are doing.

Also, I'm its 100% that Roy is the GA there right?

And it looks like Felicity came out of something cloaked/stealthed

Edit: And Cody Rhodes is back! YES!!!

Everyone crapped on it but I'm totally down for Oliver doing a run in prison fighting off a bunch of one episode villains from the last 6 years.

Aphrodite posted:

Yeah, as far as most people know she's the former ADA who was allegedly killed as a vigilante so she's kind of the perfect person for a bunch of politicians to make the face of the anti-vigilante law and order campaign.

I think. I can't remember how Evil Laurel's story resolved last season.

I think it was pretty vague. Like she teamed up with Ollie/the Feds to take down God Diaz because for some reason she feared him, and she gave Sara a hug when Lance was going into surgery but she never fully turned face and she was triple crossing everyone all season like loving Revolver Ocelot so who knows.
