Dragon Age Inquisition the REAL multiplayer TRAILER!!!!!!
You should all watch the Korean drama adaptation of The Three Musketeers (first ep. here, with english subs).
Thanks so much for the link! What I’ve watched so far seems to be very much in the spirit of the Dumas novel (the backstory being “this is all straight-up history, honest guv; I found these memoirs and Im only transcribing them”) and the tongue-in-cheek notion of the difference between d’Artagnan’s (or Park Dal Hyang here) of the Big City and the reality.
They’ve even kept the scrawny old horse!
So I am enjoying this so far and it’ll be great to see how the basics of the story translate across cultures.
And dammit, I know, I just know, I’m still going to fall for Athos (or the Crown Prince who renounces the throne as he is here) in this adaptation.
Just finished watching this first episode and it is indeed very enjoyable, and unexpectedly hilarious in parts even beyond the typical campiness! Aramis is a cocky little so-and-so who starts intrigues, Porthos giggles at everything, Athos is classy as all hell but still kind of clueless about some aspects of human nature from those below his station. It all fits very well. Looking forward to the next ep!
(Also agarthanguide and I weirdly like the idea of ‘Athos’ and ‘Constance’ in an arranged marriage. Carefully taking care of each other and both being too fond of d’Artagnan for either of their own goods.)
oh wow I love this adaptation. Dal Hyang is a glorious failboat, Athos doesn’t understand how human emotions work and is kind of scared of them, Porthos thinks everything is hilarious, and poor Aramis stands off to the side going “I’m too pretty for this shit.” Everyone should watch this.

And then I saw that Melissa Fumero had been cast as Amy Santiago on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and I felt my guts roll up into my throat and try to escape out of my mouth. Omgomgomgomg that’s it then. There’s no way in hell a major network is gonna cast two Latina actresses in such a tight ensemble show I AM SCREWED.
And then next day my agents called and told me I’d booked it.
I couldn’t believe it. I had been saying to my boyfriend the night before how there was JUST NO WAY. Normally, The Latina is a singular element of the ensemble she is working in. She’s there to provide contrast, or sexuality, or humor. Or she’s there to clean the floors and/or steal your man. There are some serious stereotypes very much alive in film and TV today, and The Latina is one of them.
Here’s the thing though. The world is changing. Slowly but surely, television is changing. The character stereotypes are changing, or being turned inside out by some fantastic writers and actors (I’m looking at you, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, and The Mindy Project). People of color are on TV playing roles that are fleshed out, complex, human. And yes, some of those characters are maids. Some are sexy heartbreakers there to steal your man. Some own BBQ joints, while some are Chiefs of Staff. Some are prisoners, and some are cops. All are real people with hopes, dreams, ambitions, fears, and all the other vast human emotions and desires…
…This is important. Because young women are watching TV, and they are getting messages about who they are in the world, who the world will allow them to be. And in big important steps, television is showing a reflection back to those young women that YOU CAN BE WHATEVER THE HELL YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE, and that two Latinas on one show is NORMAL. I think that’s a win for everybody.- Stephanie Beatriz Shares Why Diversity On TV is Important (via amysantiaago)
