Wonder Woman in America & Abroad Wonder Woman has been a hit of the early summer and while she has met with challenges in other countries, she has been America’s darling (again) for the last month. Wonder Woman has always had great popularity in the United States. She was created here, and her comics and stories are widely read here. Her creator, William Moulton Marston, created her to save America. In “The Origin of Wonder Woman” Athena tells Queen of the Amazons, Queen Hippolyte that, “American liberty and freedom must be preserved. … America, the last citadel of democracy, and of equal rights for women,Read More →

Guest Contributor, Nicole Tanner, host of the Gaming with the Moms podcast and lifelong fan of Wonder Woman, explores her emotional reaction to the recent Wonder Woman movie. It’s easy to overlook the significance of representation that we see in this film. Nicole’s piece reminds us that having a well rounded, fully developed female character moved so many people (myself included). Enjoy! ~Regina  What Wonder Woman Means to Me I just saw  Wonder Woman for the fifth time. I know that probably sounds ridiculous. It even sounds ridiculous to me, but the Wonder Woman character and the current movie featuring her serve a larger purposeRead More →

The Handmaid’s Tale For the next episode in our TGE Watches series, Isabela and I discuss the Hulu Original series: The Handmaid’s Tale. We discussed the series several times as it was airing, and had differing thoughts and opinions about it. These differences make for a pretty lively and engaging discussion. Series Description Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values’. AsRead More →

After a successful fight full of magic fireballs and dopey goblins attacks, we rescue the half elf commander, Vanya Brightmoor.

Sevarka (Dante) impresses us all with her amazing fireball of doom. Hargath (Mark) impresses us with his spells and healing power and taking the time toRead More →

E3 marked many firsts for me beyond simply my first time attending the game industry’s own convention. I played a Nintendo Switch for the first time which will likely lead to me buying that console this fall. It was also the first time I attended a con at the Los Angeles Convention Center. And it was the first time I experienced a virtual reality (VR) game. I haven’t really followed the developments in VR technology with any pressing interest. It is not something I seek out or look to engage with. The Star Child trailer during the Sony press conference completely hooked me. The intriguingRead More →

Bullets and Bracelets? In my last post, I praised Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman for its close alignment to the Wonder Woman comics. I felt this way until I realized how Diana hadn’t disguised herself to play in the Amazon games in the movie. These games would determine which Amazon would be sent back into the world of men to bring justice. In Jenkins’ film, a lengthy training sequence that shows Diana’s desire to be trained. Her training leads to a dramatic moment when she decides to leave Themyscira because she must, because the Amazon principles require her to go. Interestingly, no other Amazon volunteers toRead More →

TGE Watches Wonder Woman Summer continues and the biggest summer movie of the year is the feature on the latest episode of TGE Watches!* <do doo dut do> Wonder Woman! <do doo dut do> But seriously folks, this summer’s Wonder Woman movie has been the topic of much debate and discussion all over the internets. As a long time fan with a very serious personal connection to Wonder Woman, I’ll be the first to admit that I was worried how well my favorite Amazon princess might be treated on the big screen. I’m thankful for the outcome. As usual, we discuss the movie in great detail.Read More →
