Overlooked A/V: films, television and much more: new links to the reviews, discussions and more

Go for Sisters
The weekly assembly of links to blogposts, reviews, essays, podcasts and other items of interest about audio/visual work, usually first-rate and deserving of one's attention but sometimes less so and sometimes deserving of obscurity, up to and including opera, stage drama, conventions, museum exhibits, videogames (and boardgames), and more. Thanks to all who have produced the items linked to below! And please let me know if I've missed yours or someone else's.  
Todd Mason, with apologies for a day's delay this week

Alice Chang: Gravity Rush 2
