  • Episode Review: Supernatural 8×18 Freaks and Geeks

    Freaks and Geeks brought back Krissy Chambers (guest star Madison McLaughlin) from last seasons episode Adventures in Babysitting, recently orphaned and adopted into a hunting foster family. Fandom has explored the idea of another ‘generation’ of hunters for a while. In fact, there’s even a Livejournal community dedicated to the idea. The concept of ‘giving […]


  • Merry Geekmas! Why This Weekend Will Be a Geek Holiday

    Happy Geekmas! This weekend is shaping up to be a spectacularly nerdy event with the Doctor Who premiere, the Game of Thrones premiere, and the season finale of the Walking dead all lining up on the same night. While many people will be spending this fine Easter Sunday hunting for eggs or watching football, I’m […]


  • Webseries Recommendation: Neil’s Puppet Dreams

    Among the excellent podcasts and programming brought to you by the Nerdist empire and it’s founder/emperor Chris Hardwick lies an odd little webseries I stumbled upon thanks (once again) to a Tumblr gifset. It’s by no means obscure. In fact, it centers around beloved superstar and former child doctor Neil Patrick Harris. That is, Neil […]


  • Episode Review: Supernatural 08×17 Goodbye Stranger

    It’s been almost a month since Supernatural aired and over two months since we got a bit of Castiel on the show. Castiel fans have been through hell and back these past few years (sometimes quite literally).  He’s died three times (exploding twice and then dissipating in a lake), been corrupted/possessed by the Leviathans, got trapped alone in […]


  • Queer Heroes of Science Fiction and Fantasy

    Queer characters on television, while becoming more prevalent, are very seldom the solo protagonists of their own show. If a queer character is featured, it’d typically part of an ensemble cast (Modern Family, Glee) or featured on a show where their sexual identity is the premise (Will and Grace, Queer as Folk). There are exceptions to the […]


  • The Veronica Mars Movie: Why You Should Care

    A long time ago, we used to be friends. . . I’ll admit, I once took part in flooding the CW offices with bizarre mail in order to try and make my voice heard about a TV show.  Before Feathers for Castiel (you can stop now, guys, we’re getting our angel back) there were Cloud Watchers […]


  • Martin Freeman Confronted with Slash: “That’s fine.”

    There’s been quite a fuss lately about Martin Freeman’s recent interview on Comic Relief during which Graham Norton confronted him with rather explicit John/Sherlock fanart.  Freeman seemed to know where it was going and asked Norton to “keep it clean” at the very beginning of the segment.  His plea was dismissed, however, and they bombarded […]


  • A Game of Trailers

    The Game of Thrones Season 3 Trailer – Extended Version came out over the weekend and it literally reduced me to tears. It’s only 21 seconds worth of extra footage, but I’ve been so desperate for something new that it was enough to push me and many other fans over the edge. I think the […]


  • Why You Should Drop What You’re Doing and Watch Babylon 5

    Ah, Babylon 5. It’s a show I’d heard about so often when I mentioned I was a fan of science fiction, but I never really bothered to sit down and watch it. I’m not sure if it was because it was a few decades old (not a strong argument, considering I was a huge fan […]
