2013: The Year in Review

As we barrel toward the end of the year, we figured it was a good time to go on hiatus and take stock of Hard NOC Life before returning on the other side of the new year with a better experience for the viewers. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the show, please feel free to let us know in the comments!

For our special year-end wrap up, Keith (@the_real_chow) has asked a roster of panel all-stars to come back one more time to the topics of the day. Joining the show are Raymond ChowJulie Kang (@JulieKang), N’Jaila Rhee (@BlasianBytch), Shawn Smith, and Rodrigo Sanchez-Chavarria (@rscspokenword). As always, Hard N.O.C. Life is directed by the indomitable Nelson Wong (@aarisings).

Topics covered on the show include:

  • Gal Gadot is the new live action Wonder Woman. Should we be excited?
  • Is WB’s approach to the DC Cinematic Universe the right one?
  • How does Arrow fit into the DCU, and should it in the first place?
  • The CW is allegedly looking for an African American actress to portray Barry Allen’s love interest in The Flash spinoff
  • The importance of Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human and the diversity of FOX’s primetime lineup
  • The panelists reflect on their favorite NOC-centric moments or media of the year.
  • All this and more on Hard NOC Life! Watch it on your screen, hit “play,” and check this.

One thought on “2013: The Year in Review

  1. I have to disagree with some things. Sorry, Professor Smith. No, there doesn’t have to be a supreme being someplace. Our species is perfectly capable of insane behavior without a supernatural explanation.

    Miss Kang, the racial allegory in Almost Human may be subtle; but it still doesn’t work for me. Dorian–the POC–is property. Suspects, other police, and victims never address him if Kennex is there. His partner (overseer?) also doesn’t have a problem abusing synthetics. And Dorian seems to be okay with not even being a second class citizen.

    But is he okay with that? Can Dorian really feel anything? Would it matter if he did? What are his rights, if any? Can he refuse an order? It would be nice if the show aired the episodes in order, and had a story arc. Right now, what sympathy I have for the character is only because Ealy rises above the material.

    Oh, and AoS has Ming Na Wen in it; so I’ll watch no matter how bad it is. Looking forward to more episodes of Hard NOC Life.
