Reading: Nearly finished Filter House by Nisi Shawl. I've loved nearly all the stories in it so far and they range over everything from futuristic science fiction to ghost stories to urban fantasy.

Listening: to the Doctor Who Bookclub discussing Crooked World. Their confusion about the Penelope Pitstop character and her relationship to her Guardian/The Hooded Claw reminds me forcibly about how the original Who novels spoke to a very specific demographic. They were equally confused (when discussing Love and War) about who the Travellers were supposed to evoke. They hypothesised that they were kind of like the Roma when, to me, they were clearly intended to evoke the New Age Travellers of the 1980s and 1990s.

Watching: Agent Carter - I find it odd how jarring the ongoing narrative structure seems when although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D started out very episodic it became much more joined up later. I suspect it's the sense that, right from the start, this is a story about a transition -- the founding of S.H.I.E.L.D from the SSR.
