Let’s do a quick head count, raise your hand if, when you read this post’s title, you thought to yourself, “Damn, how many after shows can Chris Hardwick host?” That my friends, is a lot of hands. The BBC is launching a new Doctor Who companion series Doctor Who Extra, not to be confused with a show about Doctor Who Companions, but an inside look at the behind the scenes of each episode. How can you tune in? (more…)

Adding to a kick ass heroine repertoire that already includes Wonder Woman and G.I. Joe‘s Lady Jaye, actress Adrienne Palacki is bringing her skills to a new role on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Who will she be playing? Well, I’ll assume you read the headline and say again that she’s playing Bobbi Morse, AKA: Mockingbird. The character was name dropped in Marvel’s TV panel at San Diego Comic Con, but what was at the time assumed to be an Easter egg is actually a major guest role for the fifth episode of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s second season.

Don’t Worry, Warner Bros Has Plans for Harley Quinn

When Harley Quinn first appeared in the an early episode of Batman: The Animated Series called “The Joker’s Favor,” she was an instant hit with fans. Like a couple of aspects of TAS, Harley eventually made her way to the mainstream DC Comics universe where she has flourished, appearing in numerous comic book series, including her own solo book. So it should really come as no surprise that the character is so highly in demand for those working on DC properties in other media, like, say Arrow. But if you’re waiting for Stephen Amell’s archery-friendly vigilante to face off against Mr. J’s Girl Friday, you’re going to be sadly out of luck. (more…)

It looks like Playstation’s Powers is getting some of the last big pieces into place. The most recent bit of news is that Sharlto Copley, likely best known for his role in District 9, will be playing the lead of Christian Walker. Walker is one of the two primary characters in the comic series from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, which the show will be an adaptation of. In addition to Copley, Michelle Forbes has joined the cast to play a superheroine known as Retro Girl.

The series will follow two detectives, Walker and his partner Deena Pilgrim, who investigate homicides involving people with superpowers, otherwise known as Powers. Walker was once a Power himself, before losing his powers after a battle with a super-human killer. He now uses his unique perspective to investigate crimes involving the Powers community.  (more…)

Ok, so who remembers the teen movie entitled ‘Not Another Teen Movie? I don’t because I don’t watch corny stuff. But let’s imagine that somebody wanted to build off the fad of those parody movies and pitched ‘Not Another High School Show‘ for television. It was developed in 2007 and a pilot was shot for Comedy Central but it wasn’t picked up. The show was allegedly supposed to include individual sketches, an example of which somebody found in a trashcan and put on YouTube. It’s called ‘Muffy The Vampire Slayer’ and holy cats are you in for it. Not to dissect it too deeply before you’ve watched the clip, but let’s just say that it starred Alison Brie in the title role. Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence pops in for a few seconds too. Wait a minute, this sounds awesome… (more…)

See The New Fan-Made, Official Opening Titles For The New ‘Doctor Who’ Season

I thought it was pretty cool when Roger Federer sported his fan-designed racket in Toronto’s Rogers Cup awhile back. You see that sort of thing in sports pretty often where Fan Appreciation Day’s get lots of creative exercise. I’m a moderate sports fan, and less so the older I get. But my love of geekdom is rampant. That’s why I’m halfway jealous of the awesome feeling one fan got when his opening credits design for the new Doctor Who season was made official. That’s right, Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor will get a brand-spanking-new intro when the season premieres in a few days. There was no contest held; no call to any effects designers to offer submissions. This is all the result of one dedicated fan who just loves the show. And the show’s head honcho loved him in return.

Is ‘The Walking Dead’s’ Daryl Dixon Gay?

This has been a hotly debated issue since the doldrums of season 2 of ‘The Walking Dead.’ Way back when Glen proved to us that anyone could get laid during the zombie apocalypse, there was Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier. He was a redneck woodsman with a knack for survival and she was an abused housewife with a need for being saved all the time. They became good friends despite the fact that she was obviously  throwing herself at the man. That was while sheriff Rick Grimes was making another baby with his wife Lori and loose cannon Shane let blond cynic Andrea jump up and down on him in a midsize. There was sex to be had on that farm, boys and girls. Yet the asexual backwoods badass was getting and chasing none of it. Series creator Robert Kirkman might know why. (more…)
