If you were somewhat confused by this week’s Christmas-y themed Lost Girl, it’s understandable. Granted, the holiday our fae friends were celebrating is somewhat, ahem, made up, but it is called Yule, and it does borrow a lot of Christmastime imagery, and Krampus is the reason for the season. The explanation is simple, this episode originally aired during the holiday season in Canada on Showcase, but considering that many places in North America still look like a winter wonderland, we can let the exact time slide and just enjoy the company of old friends in somewhat merry times.

This should answer a lot of questions regarding the role Batman is gonna play in FOX‘s upcoming series Gotham.
The young actor above is the show’s Bruce Wayne: David Mazouz of the TV series Touch. And Bruce Wayne is the ONLY character Mazouz will be playing–Batman isn’t even a gleam in the troubled orphan’s eye yet.
Hit the jump for further details on young Master Bruce, and meet the newly cast “Proto-Catwoman”: Newcomer Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle. (more…)
50 years from now, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) will be the stuff of legend, one of the mythic heroes upon which the new world will build its history. But in this episode, directed by Julius Ramsey, we learn he wasn’t always a hero. We also learn why Beth Greene has more strength than we thought. (more…)
What horrors Leonardo Dicaprio will be dreaming about from now until forever.
The Oscars is one of the best parties in the business. If you’re not in the business, well, it’s just a bunch of millionaires honoring themselves with gold statues. Little condescending ain’t it? Still, the world is compelled to watch. Whether we truly appreciate the acknowledgment of Hollywood’s most deserving, or just have some bets to win, our fascination with the award show is ever present.
If you’re not into all the glitter, glam, and pretentiousness, but want to know just enough to make small talk at the water cooler, Nerd Bastards has got you covered. Here’s the fastest and perhaps laziest post Oscar recap. It’s 2am and we want Tacos, what do you expect from us? (more…)
Welcome back, Diners!
Time for another fun-filled season of Hannibal–OR, perhaps to be more in tune with the way the season is starting out, we should be calling the show Graham? (Because calling it Will would just be silly) In any case, THIS time I hope to be able to review the entire season (I missed the final two episodes due to illness).
Anyway, let’s tuck in, shall we? (more…)
Don’t expect HBO to let up on the barrage of Game of Thrones material anytime soon. The series returns on Sunday April 6th which makes March the longest month of the year! To help build anticipation – and a sense of dread – here’s a bevy of new characters posters, the official Season 4 poster (which is totally creepy!), and a few teasers featuring the Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen factions. (more…)
It was announced earlier today that ABC would be airing a documentary detailing the Marvel Cinematic Universe, titled Marvel Presents: Assembling a Universe. While we’re going to be getting a first time look at a lot of behind-the-scenes content and interviews, could we also get our first look at some footage from the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron? (more…)
Here we are, back from another hiatus with Arrow‘s second season heading into the final stretch. The Arrow Cave is getting a little crowded, there’s a new villain on the scene, and just about everybody’s reconciling their differences. In fact, while it’s obvious this episode’s title – “Time of Death” – is referencing new villain, The Clock King, it also neatly ties in with everyone seeking forgiveness as it’s something customary to do before you die. (more…)
On initial reflection, if we’re going to spend a week poking around in someone’s memories, shouldn’t it be Bo? I mean, it’s not like there’s a season and a half long mystery waiting to get answered, is there? But once this week’s Lost Girl went into full-throttle, what was gained as an appreciation for a card that the show doesn’t play that often: the flashback. Other shows with characters more than century old – your Vampire Diaries, your True Bloods – revel in the chance to show their characters in period dress, but Lost Girl though doesn’t go there too much. It’s not the only reason, but it is the main reason, why “La Fae Époque” was a winner. (more…)

In an unprecedented move, New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced a multi-million dollar incentive program designed specifically to convince Marvel to film their 5 new Netflix series in New York City. As it’s rare for a show or even a movie to have the cash or resources to actually film in New York–and seeing as how that’s where all 5 shows are set anyway, Marvel accepted.
