I should be full of righteous indignation that it’s taken so long, but the inner Japanese School Girl in me is tittering way too much to make that happen just now. We’ve only gotten 11 new episodes in the last four years including specials, that would send most fandoms right over the edge, but The Venture Brothers are like fine wine and should be savored. So go forth my fellow Venturians and click the jump to savor this new trailer. I’ll be in my bunk. (more…)

It’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights! It’s time for some shameless cross-network self-promotion. The Muppets debuts later this month on ABC, and they’re trying to raise some awareness with a series of promos featuring actors from other popular ABC series because, you know, The Muppets need more brand recognition. Of course, the original Muppet Show was well known for its celebrity guest appearances, so why not take advantage of that legacy through the lens of corporate synergy? So here are the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational, corporatational, promos possible for the all new Muppet show. (more…)

They are two best friends, Firefly alum, and probably the only two guys that can get both nerdy boys and girls to drop their underoos with burning man desire. They are Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. These two well known stars of TV and film have been around the Convention circuit offering their stories, egos, and devilishly handsome looks to elated fans. Now they’re now using their experience with cons to transform the weird and wonderful world of conventions into a web series. It’s called Con Man and will be written, directed and star Tudyk with Fillion co-starring as well as producing.
The series focuses on the actors’ experiences after their show’s cancellation, as they make their way into the convention circuit. As Tudyk explains in the video below, outsiders often think that science fiction fans are the weirdest part about a convention when, in truth, the strangest characters can be found behind the scenes.
Already they have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, just to start. (more…)
