Rec Me Friday with yet another television show canceled before its time. There’s no righting the great injustice that is a canceling an excellent show but hopefully, today’s recommendation compels someone to watch this amazing albeit short series.
REC ME FRIDAY: *SPOILER ALERT* THE ROBOT FALLS IN LOVE
GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES | Season 1
Network: Cartoon Network, Canceled because Cartoon Network doesn’t want me to actually like DC characters. They canceled Young Justice too
Cast: Josh Keaton, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jason Spisak, Grey DeLisle
Produced by: Giancarlo Volpe, James Krieg, Bruce W. Timm
Premise: Based on the popular comic series by DC Comics, this CGI animated series features Hal Jordan of Earth, one of the 3,600 members of the Green Lantern Corps. Each members wears a power ring which the user can apply his willpower to create anything he or she can imagine. Each “Green Lantern” patrols their sector of the universe, protecting it against any and all threats. Hal and his comrade, Kilowog, travel to the Frontier Sector to deal with a new threat: the Red Lanterns, who use rage instead of willpower to focus their power rings.
Oh no, I’m nearing the end of content and pictures I have from my London experience to make posts about. My life back here in the states is so uneventful and boring compared to London. I have no idea what I’m going to make personal posts about anymore. Please feel free to comment with how you come up with ideas.
But anyway, here’s a quick recap of my journey exploring London (and the great England area) using my Instagram pictures. Or at least part one because I underestimated how much pictures I took.
There were other interesting things in between like the I went the many many theater shows and museums I went to as well. Maybe I’ll talk about those one day.
EXPLORING LONDON, ONE INSTAGRAM AT A TIME
Skipping this week’s Rec Me Friday because honestly, I’m slowly running out of inspiration. There are a great number of amazing television shows I could feature but each recommendation requires effort and inspiration I don’t fully have right now. I do a have a few recommendations in mind though so don’t worry, I haven’t completely abandoned this blogging venture (yet).
In the meantime, I thought this would be a good moment to discuss an important topic in entertainment – minority representation. As an Asian American, media representation for minorities, including East Asians, is always on my mind. I’ve found that like with most POCS, Asians are underrepresented in American media as well as the occasional British television programs I watch. But when I studied abroad in London, I became more fully aware of just how hard it is for East Asians to be represented in UK media.
And so, for my Journalism class in London, I chose write an article on the media presentation of East Asians in the UK. I’m sharing the feature now as well as some musings on experience being an Asian American living the the UK.
