Hello and welcome all to WednesdayBookClub! My name is Geesejuggler and after weeks of lethargy, I’m tired of being tired! Hopefully by the time that you’re reading this, I will have worked out and actually have a decent night’s sleep. *Fun fact: This is the post that was supposed to post last week but just reworked…
It’d been a few years since I watched Jean Cocteau’s 1946 version of Beauty and the Beast ( La Belle et la Bête) and I found myself in the mood for it a couple nights ago. Just now it occurs to me a suitable thing to write about on Valentine’s Day. Such a beautiful, visually imaginative film but with such surprisingly…
So this seemed like a good idea to talk about the Rebirth series of Supergirl. The first story arc, “Reign of the Cyborg Superman,” came to an end last week and the show (which the Rebirth series takes a lot of elements from) is back from hiatus. But first, a history lesson.
Today I seem to be stuck in the dregs of a second act, and am thoroughly discombobulated. In addition to a difficult workday, new corporate headshots were required. I . . . do not photograph well. Furthermore, none of the AoS stills appealed. So have this image, which displeases me as completely as the day itself…
Well, this is it folks. We have our winners. Who are the lucky champions?
Gorilla City. Attack on Gorilla City. There’s a city full of gorillas called Gorilla City. Someone is attacking it! gahhhh! Groddy, welcome back.
Anna has the perfect life. She is from a prominent family and has just received a marriage proposal at a party with all of society on hand. But it’s all turned upside down when a 10-year-old boy walks into her life and pronounces, “It’s me, Sean.” As in her late husband.
Radio Times have just published one of their highly scientific probes that lets you discover which Doctor Who companion should be your fellow traveler. Just answer a few simple questions to find out if you should be dating a Donna, Bill, Ben, Jack or Alpha Centauri.
The UK branch of tv station Fox have been marking the launch of torture porn series 24:Legacy with a survey of our favourite heroes. They seem surprised with the results.
I had so much trouble focusing on last night’s new Walking Dead. The first half was so airless, I couldn’t believe I was only halfway through, it felt like I’d been force feeding it to myself all night. Things picked up a bit in the second half but the show’s come to a point where Xena and Hercules need to show up so…
Physicist, games programmer and artist DrMike2000's trippy comic Universe Gun is getting a trade paperback edition!
As noted by Katharine Trendacosta in a recent article, Fox has lost their way with the lucrative X-Men franchise. If they ever really knew what to do with this team, they’ve obviously lost the thread now. But what should they do to recover? How can our heroes triumph in the face of this new threat?!?!
No, not that Bruce. And to be sure, not that Harley either if you make it to the end... ;)
Friday’s Grimm was a real detective story with multiple suspects, an undercover operation, and even a red herring. Spoilers after the break.
Tonight’s episode of Supergirl once again focused on Lena Luthor, the sister of Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, and whether or not she’s evil. Lena Luthor actually has a long history in the comics, starting in the Silver Age. In fact, much like the show, Lena and Supergirl had a long friendship and Lena even knew…
A Dance with Dragons part four! ~300-~400
I ran across some news that fans of the demonic procedural will love. The show has been renewed for a third season by Fox.
Metallo is back! I’m not sure how great that’s it, but OK! Also more Luthors stuff. Let us react.
This is it folks: the final battle. Who will triumph as the dreamiest man and woman of them all? It’s up to you.
A secret society of mindless cannibals may exist in the London Underground at the same time as there’s an endearingly eccentric but not especially effective police inspector in the city. 1972's Death Line, a.k.a. Raw Meat, establishes this, among a few other things, without any significant correlation. Despite the…
