Under My Radar

TV things I have never watched, and are unlikely ever to watch:

  • MMA (of either sex)
  • Deadpool
  • Fast & Furious
  • Haywire
  • The Mandalorian

…and I’ve also never bothered to read Maxim magazine.

It is unsurprising, therefore, that I had no idea who Gina Carano was until I discovered her existence on one of my many branch line forays into the bowels of the Internet (shuddup, I’m trying to write lyrical stuff here in describing a totally boring activity).

But discover her I did, and I have to say that if your type is earthy, stocky Mediterranean types with an excellent superstructure (e.g. Salma Hayek), then this Carano creature is right up your whatsit, so to speak:

And anyone tossed out of the loathsome Disney Corp for daring to voice unpopular opinions is welcome at this website at any time.


  1. I don’t miss most of the stuff I am supposedly missing.
    I’m fairly content with my life as it is.
    The pink shirt looks pretty good but the rest, she appears “chunky” not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’d take chunky over stick figure 9 times outta 10.

    1. She is listed as 145 lbs at 5’8″. That’s not terribly “chunky”.

      Another plus is she is was born in Dallas, Texas.

  2. She’s also got a good sense of humor, which given the times we live in is definitely a good quality.

    Saw a video on YouTube of her choking out a TV show host(some science program.) I had to take a cold shower afterwards.

  3. The Mandalorian was actually pretty decent as a space western, and Deadpool was hilarious as it poked fun at the entire superhero movie franchise. But if that’s not your thing, totally understand.

    But yeah, Gina appears to the be one of the few hollyweird stars I could actually stand to live with.

  4. Deadpool is hilarious. I don’t know about it being a TV thing though, I watched it on my computer.

    1. It’s not. It’s two movies based on a comic book. I’m not sure why Kim refers to it as a TV thing.

      I’m pretty sure Fast & Furious is a series of movies, too. I have to admit that I have no idea what Haywire is.

  5. Having been a fan of Star Wars since the days when the movies didn’t have episode numbers, I really, really wanted to watch “The Mandalorian”. But it was only available on streaming and I’d seen what the Haus of Maus had done to the franchise. My reluctance was rewarded when they fired Gina Carano for the crime of not being “woke”. So I guess I’ll never see it, since there probably won’t be a dvd or Blu-ray release. Critical Drinker summed up her tale better than I ever could:


  6. The less said about Ms. Carano’s acting the better. However as someone who enjoys stocky dark haired med types, she is quite lovely.

    Heard her in a couple of interviews too. Seems to have a good head on her shoulders as well.

  7. I’m not a fan of comic books in the slightest, and superhero movies, while fine for 10 year olds, are ridiculous when you’re 10x that age. But with that said, good ghods, Deadpool (and Deadpool 2) are two of the funniest, and most irreverent movies I’ve ever seen. Ryan Reynolds is a god amongst men (he even has his own line of gin (perfect for breakfast or so I’m told). Carano is wonderful, of course.

    As for the Mandalorian, probably one of the best space-opera genre offerings of the last 30 years. It’s a fun shoot-em-up with excellent stories, pacing, and mostly good acting. It’s definitely turn-your-brain-off fun, good guys and bad guys. Carano is only in a couple of episodes but I loved her character. I’ve always been partial to strong female characters who don’t take shit from anybody and that’s definitely her.
