  • Reign, Season 1: What I’ve Seen and What I’d Like to See Next

    Reign is my ultimate guilty pleasure show, where pagans in the woods, a mysterious girl wandering secret passages, and a love triangle, all complete with a modern soundtrack, are found in lieu of being more historically grounded.  And with the shocking ending to the midseason finale “Fated”, we Royals are left behind to find out […]


  • The Supernatural Spin-Off Needs a Female Lead and Here’s Why

    The Winchesters themselves could not to convince me that Supernatural treats female characters well. Don’t get me wrong, Supernatural is great but I don’t think that even the powers that be would disagree that it doesn’t have a fantastic track record when it comes to female characters. Unfortunately, the format of the show – which […]


  • Why You Shouldn’t Give Up on Teen Wolf Just Yet

    The Teen Wolf fandom is having a bit of rough hiatus (thank goodness it’s almost over) and while Season 3A had some awesome moments it was overall fairly inconsistent.

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 […]
