  • Vikings 4×3 Review: Mercy

    If I were in charge of Vikings, I might have re-titled “Mercy” to “Mercy from Men Yelling.” It is probably a good thing I’m not in charge of Vikings. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites. Linkbacks are encouraged.


  • Comedy Toknight: A Galavant Recommendation

    I don’t understand why more people don’t watch Galavant. I mean, I guess I do. Folks hear “musical” and they have already made up their mind about what kind of entertainment it is. They hear “musical television” and they get uncomfortable flashbacks of Glee and the Buffy special. They hear “musical television set in a medieval/fantasy setting” […]



  • Vikings 4×02 Review: Kill the Queen

    In the second episode of season four of Vikings, “Kill the Queen,” a lot of other things happened–but all I can think about is Rollo’s haircut. Poor Rollo. A blowout won’t make Princess Gisla love you. But it did make her laugh, and people tend to like partners who can do that. I predicted I’d […]


  • Missed Femslash Opportunities (Part 1)

    Femslash February is winding down, but before it goes softly into the night, I think we should talk about the wasted potential of certain femslash ships. Too often, the latent f/f pairing glares at me like a restless goddess, demanding sacrifices of fake dating fanfiction and gifsets of soulmate AUs. In no particular order, here is the […]


  • Vikings 4×1 Review: A Good Treason

    I have missed the rich, detailed textures of Vikings. I have missed the wide, sweeping shots of incredible scenery. I have missed the many attractive people on horseback and in peril. “A Good Treason”, the fourth season premiere, featured all of these things in the first few minutes, and I am glad that I don’t have to miss […]


  • What Your Favorite “Steven Universe” Ship Says About You

    In the oft-barren wasteland that is the femslash fandom, one show rises like an oasis above the sand: Steven Universe. There are so many ways to ship ladies with ladies in this show that there was a recent episode in which a character makes a shipping chart, an incredible meta joke about their own characters […]


  • The Animal Magnetism of “We Bare Bears”

    Fish out of water narratives aren’t exactly an untested trope, but when the water is San Francisco and the fish are an adopted family of three anthropomorphic bears à la the plot of “We Bare Bears,” something innovative and heartwarming happens. We are in an exciting age of animated entertainment, and Cartoon Network is leading […]


  • Adventure Time 7×23 Review: Crossover

    Before the promos for this episode of Adventure Time aired, the fandom was speculating wildly as to what the titular crossover would be – Uncle Grandpa, Steven Universe, maybe even Rick and Morty? Instead, we got an interdimensional romp, and the “crossover” was within Adventure Time itself – the alternate universe Ice Finn that was seen […]


  • Adventure Time 7×22 Review: Scamps

    One thing is certain: Adventure Time’s “Scamps” Will Leave You Wanting S’more. The beginning of this week’s episode of Adventure Time felt like a blast from the show’s past. Finn and Jake are working the Candy Kingdom beat under the watchful eye of Princess Bubblegum. But after they catch the scamps named in the episode’s […]
