I forgot to mention earlier that I have a guest blog over at RhiReading, all about getting superheroes out of their spandex (and on never-ending series, and whether to model a romance series after a comic book serial).
I noticed that Netflix has the Dark Shadows (1991) series online. I won’t watch it, because I’m still traumatized by the cliffhanger left by the series cancellation. Fourteen years old, and I needed to know what Victoria would say to Barnabas Collins … and we never found out.
THE PAIN! *sob*
The other part of the pain was that I followed Joanna Going to several other shows and movies after that … not all of them were good (Children of the Dust).
(I have a sad history of following actresses after I’ve seen something cheesy-but-comic-booky on TV. Famke Janssen? Yeah. I wish I could say that I loved her after GoldenEye (she squeezed a guy to death with her thighs!) or even X-Men, but it was a movie called Model by Day instead, where she played a vigilante model named Lady X.
Lady X is a woman who works during the day as a model but turns into a fighter for justice at night with the help of her karate master Chang.
Yeah. And that’s probably all the description necessary. I do think it was a better movie than Catwoman, though. Not that that’s really saying anything.)
