  • Our First Glimpse at Ant-Man

    On Tuesday ABC aired an hour-long special titled Marvel: Assembling a Universe.  Though this was essentially just a lengthy commercial for the film franchise, it was quite remarkable.  It took us back to Hulk and the first Iron Man film and explained how this wonderful version of the Marvel universe came into being.  We saw […]


  • POLL: Favorite Game of Thrones character?

    Game of Thrones season 4 is right around the corner, so we’d like to know who your favorite character is!  For the purposes of this poll, we are specifically asking about the show, so characters from upcoming seasons have not been included.  We also know that there are differences between the book and show versions […]


  • Hannibal 2×03 Review: Hassun

    The complexities surrounding the characters on Hannibal is one of my favorite things about the show and this episode highlighted that beautifully.   These characters are incredibly fleshed out and that sometimes makes analyzing their actions difficult at times.  Very rarely is a character acting from a simple and straight forward perspective.  While it makes getting […]


  • The Women of “Game of Thrones”: A Study on Gender Roles

    The medieval-inspired society in which Game of Thrones takes place is generally viewed as misogynistic in the way that it’s structured. Land and titles are only passed down through the males in a bloodline whereas the females are essentially married off as an act of political gain or a peace pact. Women are meant to […]



  • Femslash Poll Results

    Shipping polls are difficult.  Having to end things early because of botting debacles isn’t fun and we regret having to do that.  We’ve listened to feedback and took action when commenters had concerns, but none of that was enough to appease voters.  We put anti-botting measures in place, but that caused anger because one pairing […]


  • 2014 Pilot Orders – Shows I’m Looking Forward To Watching

    The Hollywood Reporter recently released a list of shows that have ordered pilots this year and there’s a lot to be excited about.  Spin offs and comic book shows seem to be on the rise this season, with aliens and apocalyptic narratives also making a strong appearance on the list.  Before launching into the titles […]


  • Hannibal Review 2×01: Kaiseki

    The Heateus (aka “hiatus”) has been long and grueling, but finally the moment Fannibals have been waiting for has come.  Hannibal has returned.  He’s had quite a lead up to the premiere with a brilliantly constructed trailer, the first two minutes released a few days ahead of the premiere, Mads Mikkelsen participating in a Q&A […]


  • POLL: Femslash couples!

    UPDATE: RESULTS HERE End the poll? (first to 500)UPDATE 3/7: Due to continued issues voting is now limited to ONE VOTE PER HOUR. Should Faberry & Doccubus have their own poll starting from 0 with anti-botting measures in place? After our last extraordinarily popular shipping poll we got requests to do a femslash/lesbian poll.  We […]


  • Doctor Strange Movie Essentially Confirmed, But When?

    I don’t like to list anything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as “confirmed” until a release date is set, but comments by good-old Kevin Feige have essentially laid out three possible release dates for Doctor Strange and indicated that they are making progress on hiring people for the project.  It’s now not a matter of […]
