Julie Newmar MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

Bluewater Productions' latest female comic leader is one of Batman's: Catwomen in The Secret Lives of Julie Newmar written by Marc Shapiro. Lives portrays Newmar as a time traveler on adventures that coincide with significant points in her life. Love the concept and love the preview I have seen. A spinoff of the popular Misadventures of Adam West, and definitely worth checking out.

GCB OMG!

GCB MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

Is GCB (Good Christian Belles) ABC's Desperate replacement or Pan Am's grounded flight schedule filler? Neither. The new ABC dramedy actually stands quite well on its own.


Based on the book Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin, this mid-season replacement may be a keeper. It certainly has the mixed appeal of watching the over privileged be awful to one another and plastic beauty for sure. I was a little turned off by the Southern angle at first, as I usually don't go down Jethro Lane, but it's hard to resist an ad campaign with a cute blonde in blue and a pink background. I associate crosses more with Madonna than Jesus, so I wasn't immediately turned off by the religious angles as I anticipated a high dosage of hypocrisy, and who in the hell doesn't love that?

Supergirl MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

I want to say my introduction to Supergirl was an old back issue with her on the cover, psychotically punching off the head of her own statue, maybe a Superman Family Digest or something. I don't know, look it up. A cute, blue-eyed blonde that flew around in a skirt and was prone to bipolar rages? Sign me up!


Then, we had the big screen version of Superman's long-lost cousin in Supergirl, the titular role filled by not-so-super-exciting Helen Slater. The real stars of that movie were Faye Dunaway, as the over-the-top villainess Selena and her henchwoman, Bianca, played by the hilarious Brenda Vacarro. Maybe not the greatest movie, but a camp lover's dream come true for sure. At any rate, that movie did so well that they killed poor Kara Zor-El off in comic book land.

Batgirl Gone Wild

Batgirl MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

I first fell in love with Batgirl when she made guest appearances on the Batman TV show from the '60s. (Reruns! I'm not THAT old, bitches!) Yvonne Craig perfectly filled that glittery Batsuit, and I always prayed Batgirl would be on at least one of the back-to-back episodes they would re-air thrice a week.

I demanded my parents get me a Mega Batgirl doll. (Barbies weren't acceptable toys for boys, yet - luckily - super hero dolls were fair game.). I, of course, redressed my Batgirl doll, pierced her ears with thumb tacks, and changed her identity to an adopted child named Wendy that was susceptible to frequent demonic possession. Effed up, yet hilarious!

This Means War

This Means War MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

This Means War? Apparently, Abundance of Beautiful, Blue-Eyed Blondes wasn't in the title pool.

It's always good to see my favorite actress, Reese Witherspoon, on the big screen. Despite her Type A personality, she always picks atypical roles, and This Means War is no exception. Even if it's not Legally Blonde: Part 5, I still liked it. One of the highlights of my life was when one of my friends said he was watching a Reese Witherspoon movie, and he thought to himself, "OMG! That's Mike Troy!" I totally could play her gay brother, btw!

Though sometimes not a fan of randomly mixed genre (Espionage/Romantic comedy in this case), I think it worked well in this case. Director McG can do it, if no one can.
