Women who kick ass, or are bad ass, have been coming more to the forefront of science fiction and fantasy in recent years. In books, movies, television, and comics we are seeing more of them. That is fantastic. However, I feel like they might be casting a shadow on great female characters whose strength is not…
Happy Wednesday! Humpity hump day, as it were. Here’s a little Firefly/Serenity humor for you:
Good morning to you all on this wonderful Friday. It’s the last day of the workweek so let’s get things off with a bang with a fabulous factoid.
Jesse L. Martin isn't just a great actor — he's also an accomplished singer and writer. And he's teamed up with three other Flash actors, Carlos "Cisco" Valdes, Rick "Eddie Thawne" Cosnett, and Patrick "Captain Singh" Sabongui, to make The Letter Carrier, a short musical film about a black family in 1860 hiding in…

Let's be clear—aspersions in my headline are for shit-disturbing purposes only. However, I'm re-watching Blake's 7 for the first time since I watched in the 80s, and I just finished episode 13, Orac, in which Avon utters the line "I was aiming for his head" with all the sarcastic aplomb that is the character's gift.
Just in time for Halloween, Shawna Trpcic — the woman behind the amazing and enviable threads worn in Firefly, Angel, Dr. Horrible, The Cabin in the Woods, Power Rangers, and many, many more — is here to answer your questions about dressing up and getting costumed!
The crew returns with Zack Whedon on script duty January 29th!
