  1. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “Sokka’s Master”

    A SOKKASODE!

    After last weeks’ (in TV time—two weeks ago in me-time) Katara-centric “The Painted Lady,” this week we get something we haven’t gotten in a while: A SOKKASODE

  2. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Painted Lady”

    No Zuko. Sigh. But I’ll deal with it, because this episode was basically “Katara is awesome for 24 minutes and everyone else can suck it,” and I am completely OK with that.

  3. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Headband”

    Here's something to be thankful for!

    What, you wanted more from me than stupid Photoshops of Avatar characters wearing headbands?

  4. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: Book 3 Premiere, “The Awakening”

    Previously on Avatar: The Last Airbender: “Zuko, you fucked up.” That’s it. That’s the “previously on.” Season three. LET’S DO THIS, MOTHERTRUCKERS.

  6. Exploring Lesbian-Themed Comic Extravaganza Girls Love Festival 12

    In almost any large western convention’s Artists Alley, tucked away here and there in between the series parody bookmarks and postcards, the slash pictures and color posters of “cute male couple on TV du jour,” you can find comic artists doing actual comics. These comics are often some of the most interesting finds at a […]

  7. So Long and Thanks For All the Puns

    Victoria's on bad Photoshop duty in my absence.

    The day has come, fellow nerds. It is my last day at The Mary Sue. I want to thank all our readers for making this a great two years (and one month-ish) for me, filled with puns and funs and mentally stimulating discussion about all manner of geeky topics.

  8. Sleepy Hollow And John Noble’s Legal Parody Commercial Is Stupid In All the Right Ways

    What is happening?

    For those of you who don't watch Sleepy Hollow (WATCH SLEEPY HOLLOW), John Noble plays Henry Parrish, aka the Horseman of War. Like all servants of the devil, he also dabbles in law (lawyer jokes! Oh, classic), which puts him in a prime position to trick Orlando Jones into selling his soul. Not that you need that context. Without it, this is just Dr. Walter Bishop/Denethor in a cheesy legal commercial, and in what world do you not want to watch that?

  11. Sebastian Stan’s Agent Finally Got Him a Post-Winter Soldier Gig

    Tumblr, pay attention: Sebastian Stan, who made everyone lose their damn minds in The Winter Soldier and then leveraged his popularity to secure roles in exactly one weird-sounding indie sports comedy, is finally going to be in another (non-Marvel) movie that you'll actually be able to see on the big screen. Even better: The amazing, Oscar-nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor (who, unlike Stan, is actually in things), has been added to the cast as well.

    No strings on me.

    We have several Marvel tidbits for you today, including THE SPADER talking about Ultron, his robot baddie whom part of Tumblr has discovered nascent sexual longings for everyone's been talking about since the trailer hit.

  13. Sexist Ad on Polygon Causes Uproar—But Is It For The Right Reasons?

    I saw this tweet earlier this morning. Whether or not it is legitimate, I do not know (which is all kinds of depressing unto itself), but what really bothered me were the responses.

  14. A Frankenstein Cop Show and Phantom of the Opera Showbiz Drama Are Coming To Your TVs

    Past the point of no return.

    Over the last year or so, steps have been taken towards a The Wizard of Oz medical drama, an Alice in Wonderland cop show, a Les Mis legal drama, and a Peter Pan workplace comedy. So screw it—why not a Frankenstein cop show or Phantom of the Opera à la Smash? I don't care anymore. I have nothing left to lose.

  17. Meet the Most Unlucky Schmucks In the World Right Now: The Guys At @GamersGate

    Prayer circle.

    GamersGate, according to their official Facebook page, "is the leading digital distribution platform for PC, Mac and Linux games, with over 6000 games available." They also must have done something awful in a past life, because damn. Those poor bastards. Twitter thinks so, too:

  18. Marvel Had the Best Reaction to the Leaked Ultron Trailer, Plus the First Teaser Poster

    No strings on me.

    We shared the above tweet with you when we posted the trailer last night, but well, it maybe got a little lost in the shuffle amidst everyone freaking out about ballerinas and Pinocchio. We think it deserves center stage, because that response is wonderful. And in other Marvel twitter news: they've released the first teaser poster!

  19. Air New Zealand Has Done Another Cameo-Filled, LotR-Themed Safety Briefing

    Dean O'Gorman, why are you wearing a seatbelt you are on a horse.

    I may not get to cavort around New Zealand anytime soon—something about it costing money, I dunno—but at least I get to watch "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made." You milk those Middle Earth movies, Air New Zealand. You milk them as long as you possibly can.

  20. Dorkly’s Take On George “Child Ruiner” Lucas Is… Different

    "Meesa here to make you question everything you ever loved!"

    You consider yourself damn lucky I didn't use a pic of Jar Jar for this post, TMSers. As for Dorkly's comic... I can't tell you whether there's Jar Jar or not. I don't want to spoil it. The last panel packs quite a comical punch, and you should go in blank.
