  • Baiting the Fandom That Feeds You

    With fandom’s migration online and the rise of Social Media, any hope of hiding fan practices has basically disintegrated. Creators (including performers, writers, directors and producers) are actively encouraged to interact with fans via platforms like Twitter, Facebook and even Tumblr. So while some fans desperately attempt to maintain the illusion of the Fourth Wall […]


  • Veronica Mars Featurette: Ships Ahoy!

      We finally got another look at the much anticipated – and famously fan-funded – Veronica Mars Movie and this time it’s got a bit of a controversial twist. Well I guess it’s not all that controversial unless you’re a fan, but pushing a love triangle is always a risky move where fandom is concerned. […]



  • Has Teen Wolf Social Media Lost its Edge?

    Social media has become an increasingly important – if not the most important – part of marketing for film and television. Sites like Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr allow fans to engage directly with creators. Nielsen has started accounting for tweets and word-of-tweet recommendations can literally make or break a television show. These days a strong […]


  • Supernatural, Queer Baiting, and the Twittersphere

    When fans get upset about something, many of them turn to Twitter.  They tweet actors, writers, and producers in the hopes of having their voices heard.  Twitter has provided a very unique platform for audience interaction and participation and sometimes, on very special occasions, fans get a response from those creators.  And that is exactly […]

  • My Fears, Hopes, and Predictions for the Hannibal Finale

    The following will contain spoilers based on previews and Red Dragon. There is no concrete information about how the finale is going to go, but based on established canon and the trailer, well, it’s not looking good… It looks like our happy little Murder Family is breaking up. It’s not like we didn’t see this […]


  • Help! I Don’t Watch Game of Thrones. Why Is Everyone Sad?

    So you’ve managed to avoid watching Game of Thrones for three years?  Impressive. You must be oh so very confused right now. We all had a collective melt down last weekend and there’s still one episode to go before the end of the season. I’m not saying you have to watch the show (you should), […]


  • Hannigram – A Shipping Catastrophe

    Ah, yes, shipping. It’s such a great pastime. Shipping starts when a fan feels two characters have such a great chemistry they should totally be together and then fanworks happen and it’s all very magical. They all come with the potential for angst and many of them go to some dark place, but there’s always […]


  • The Red Wedding: A Study in Refrigerators

    After a string of mostly-quiet episodes that felt like nothing but rising action after rising action, we finally got our payoff: The Rains of Castamere was nothing but climax after climax. And while I’m excited for Bran, worried for Jon, elated for Dany, and sorry for Arya, I’m afraid I’m going to have to put […]
