love-and-radiation:

I like that Dredd is the story of two women from a similar background who stand on either side of a personification of the law. They are the only two characters who receive any detail in their backstories and have arcs, while Judge Dredd himself is a faceless automaton that they relate to in different ways. I like that both of them are depicted as warping and undermining sexual violence towards them. Anderson is notable for being fairly in control of her psychic ability (unlike the wincing Jean Grey of the X-Men movies) but never portrayed as a generic badass.

Posting that link to a State skit reminded me of the one that is probably my all-time favorite State skit but I could only find it on this third-rate video hosting site in really terrible quality because MTV/Viacom has been tremendously shitty about never ever releasing any episodes or sketches of the State or allowing them to be hosted anywhere ever. Enjoy this one while you can (despite the poor audio/visual quality)
