'Nordic Noir' The Bridge is the best cop show on TV, by Jim Shelley

'Nordic Noir' The Bridge is the best cop show on TV, by Jim Shelley | A2 Media Studies | Scoop.it
Saga Noren is the heroine of the stylishly bleak ‘Nordic Noir’ The Bridge and my favourite TV cop of recent years - a cross between DI Sarah Lund from The Killing and the blonde one from Abba. In other words, irresistible.

Sexuality & Race: One DC Comics Creator’s Take On Wonder Woman | A2 Media Studies | Scoop.it
Comic Book Resources has a new feature they're calling The Color Barrier. In their latest installment, they spoke with DC Comics writer/artist Phil Jimenez. We already knew he was a good person to talk to about representation in geek media, it's why we invited him to sit on our New York Comic Con panel last year, but this time he's speaking about Wonder Woman specifically.

The British Killings: new UK dramas draw inspiration from Nordic cousins

The British Killings: new UK dramas draw inspiration from Nordic cousins | A2 Media Studies | Scoop.it
So, farvel* then, Nordic Noir. And hello again, British grit. This week ITV’s new crime drama Broadchurch showed itself the equal, in terms of darkness, density and emotional intensity, of the televisual thrillers Scandinavia has so regularly shipped to us in recent years. As in Wallander and The Bridge, the cops in Broadchurch are flawed. As in The Killing, we saw not just the police investigation into a death but its impact on the bereaved family and the wider community.

'Mad Men,' 'Game of Thrones': The No-Spoiler Guide to Spoilers

'Mad Men,' 'Game of Thrones': The No-Spoiler Guide to Spoilers | A2 Media Studies | Scoop.it
Every year Mad Men creator Matt Weiner gets mocked by critics for his overprotective (sometimes outlandish) pleas that we omit certain details from our reviews. He considers them spoilers. Of course, everyone considers everything a spoiler these days, so it's hard to fault a showrunner known for being obsessive about everything for continuing that habit when dealing with the press. Were Mad Men lousy, we wouldn't be having this discussion. But it's still one of the best shows on television, so it matters.

A2: Lady Gaga

A2: Lady Gaga | A2 Media Studies | Scoop.it

Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta; Lady Gaga learnt the piano from age 4 and was  privately educated before auditioning for Broadway roles. She was initially unsuccessful but decided to follow a course at NYU in drama and performance, known as the Collaborative Arts Project. She wrote papers on pop artists and was clearly motivated by this period in particular.  After writing for artists like The Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears and New Kids on the Block, she was eventually signed by Akon.  Lady Gaga is unusual in her depth of ability in a genre that is often focused on the visual. 

Her versatility of being able to perform a mix of live piano based jazz or boogie - and then suddenly change to live dance demonstrates a rare talent that not only writes her own music, but can perform, play and make a subversive statement on the way - be it gay rights,women's rights or just walking onstage covered in red meat.  Her influences range from the glam' rock of David Bowie to the overblown stadium performances of Queen (one of their 
records was called 'Radio Gaga') as well as the pop art world of Andy Warhol where 'everyone is famous for fifteen minutes'- she ironically plays on the nature of 'Fame' as a monster that is essentially short-lived (Her second album is titled 'The Fame Monster'(2009)).
