    Kit Harington and Mark Gatiss to Star in BBC One’s GUNPOWDER

    I’m really excited about the news coming from BBC One and Deadline this weekend.  I’m experiencing something of a fandom trifecta.  I love Game of Thrones, I love Sherlock and I love history.  Kit Harington and Mark Gatiss will star together in BBC’s Gunpowder, and I am SO HAPPY! The three-part historical drama is focused on the Gunpowder Plot of 1605.  English Catholics planned to blow up the House of Lords and kill King James I in order to help restore a […]

    Geeks are the hero’s in Silicon Valley, and everyone having to do with this show is my hero right now.  I. Love. This. Show. HBO released a new teaser trailer for Silicon Valley Season 4 this weekend, and it delivers all of the absurdity you’ve been needing in your life.  I don’t code, and I know, there are barely any women in this show at all, ever.  But I don’t need to code to know what’s funny, and I can look […]

    Leaked STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Photo Shows Us a New Kind of Klingon?

    Holy Bat’leth!  It looks like Star Trek: Discovery has given the Klingons a very controversial redesign!  Worf is as shocked as I am. A photo leak from an extra on the Star Trek: Discovery set on Facebook this weekend gave the world a look at a new kind of Klingon, and Trek fans everywhere have a lot to say about it.  The photo was quickly taken down, presumably at the insistence of the show, but it lives on the internet […]

    New Stop-Motion Animation Series BUDDY THUNDERSTRUCK is Coming to Netflix

    If you’ve got a hankering for a little Dukes of Hazard, a little Talladega Nights and a little Robot Chicken, Netflix has the show to sate your appetite.  Buddy Thunderstruck, their new stop-motion animation series, is coming up right on your tail. Buddy Thunderstruck looks to have all of the fun and at least some of the off-color jokes that Robot Chicken provided.  That’s good news to me.  But, coming from the creators of Care Bears, could it be that […]

    BILL NYE SAVES THE WORLD is Coming to Netflix

    I’ve been holding out for a hero.  And, here he comes.  Everyone’s favorite purveyor of science experiments and general speaker of facts, Bill Nye the science guy has a new show coming to Netflix.  Bill Nye Saves the World looks to be an energetic, celebrity guest-filled romp into the world of scientific exploration. This show, in my humble opinion, is much needed at this particular point in time.  Though it is clearly out to be fun and approachable, the delivery […]

    There’s a New GAME OF THRONES Beer, and It’s Foreshadowing Season 7

    If you’re like me, you spend much of your time looking back on old Game of Thrones episodes and speculating.  It’s shameful how much I do this.  I used to look back at the books for clues, but let’s be honest, the beauty of our current situation is that all bets are off.  And, saying that about Game of Thrones is saying a lot. Brewery Ommegang has been making Game of Thrones beer since season 3, to our eternal delight. […]

    SNL’s TOTINOS with Kristen Stewart Nails Everything Super Bowl

    Wow.  I literally, truly and heartily laughed out loud at SNL’s Totinos with Kristen Stewart digital short. I am a hardcore football fan.  I’ll admit to playing fantasy football.  I’ll admit to watching every week.  It’s true that I have, on occasion, let football ruin my day.  I know it’s not always popular in geekdom, but that’s who I am.  I live in the worlds of jock and geek simultaneously. As a woman who has had a life-long love and understanding […]

    THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER Trailer will Give You Chills!

    I don’t know what’s going on with this movie, but the trailer’s got me HOOKED!  And, c’mon people, I’m not a horror guy.  A24’s The Blackcoat’s Daughter looks to be a little bit Girl Interrupted, a little bit Carrie, and a little bit The Exorcist.  Yes, please. This is one of those trailers who’s editing draws you right in and keeps you wanting more.  There’s definitely a whole lot going on at this boarding school, but you don’t know who’s doing […]

  • Hulu’s THE HANDMAID’S TALE Super Bowl Spot Shows the Horrors of Gilead

    Hulu’s THE HANDMAID’S TALE Super Bowl Spot Shows the Horrors of Gilead

    I can’t wait for Hulu‘s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.  Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred.  She is one of the last fertile women in Gilead (formerly the good old USA) forced into sexual servitude for the common ‘good’. Hulu released a 30 second first look earlier this month that gave us a good idea of the aesthetic of the new series.  Now we get a few more images from a world we hope we never see off screen. RELATED: Check […]
