    Sam Maggs — Associate Editor

    Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.

  1. Things We Saw Today: A TARDIS Tortoise!

    Try saying that ten times fast.

    Headcanon: this is actually Sherlock's pet tortoise, Clyde, who has run off to be with an even more eccentric British gentleman.

  2. Dorkly Presents The Best Fanart From Nintendo’s New Super-Kawaii 3DS Ad

    Too much cuteness for one post.

    Nintendo released a new ad for the 3DS in Japan, and it was (of course) incredibly cute. The adorableness has inspired a wave of fanart, and the best pieces are collected over on Dorkly! Including 1920s beach dress Peach, hipster-dad Bowser, and definitely-crushin'-on-each-other Peach and Zelda.

  3. Damsels, Get Distressed Over This Supercut Of Action Heroes Yelling “Let Her Go!”

    "I'm so manly!"

    Ah, yes; nothing says "action movie" quite like the ol' damsel in distress. This new supercut features a whole lot of dudes pretty angry that some other dudes have stolen "their" ladies. Mario isn't included, but you know he should be. You can see the entire list of films in order over on Huffington Post.

  4. Agents of SHIELD Recap: “Heavy is the Head”

    Science bros!

    "Heavy is the Head" was part two of the season premiere, picking up exactly where the first episode left off. Where "Shadows" was filled with lovely character moments and personal development (promising a more character-focused second season), this week's episode suffered from having to do the business. "Heavy is the Head" was heavy in the plotting, but I can forgive it. They have a whole season's worth of plot lines to set up, and I'm just glad it wasn't all crammed into the premiere.

  5. Last Night’s Jeopardy Featured A Head-Bashingly Sexist “What Women Want” Category

    What is "No more of this bullshit on national television?"

    Alex, I'll take "Disgusting Gender Stereotypes That Are Damaging As A Part Of A Larger Misogynist Culture for $500," thanks.

  6. Get Your Eva Green Fix With This New Penny Dreadful Behind-The-Scenes Featurette

    With bonus and completely random Mass Effect content!

    Here's a frightful new behind-the-scenes segment on Penny Dreadful, taken from the first season Blu-Ray/DVD set! It includes lots of interviews with your faves - and a few newer faces, too (Helen McCrory!). Also, at the 1:00 minute mark, the background music for this video is absolutely without question "Leaving Earth" from the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack. I can't handle the combination of Mass Effect and Penny Dreadful. I need to lie down.

  7. YouTube Star Who Harasses Women Is Now Being Accused Of Rape

    Ah, Sam Pepper. First, you were just a guy who harassed women for YouTube views. Then, you were a guy who allegedly harassed women just because. Now, you're being accused of raping a girl the last time you were in Toronto. Next time, some advice you may want to consider: don't sexually assault people for any reason. Just a thought.

  8. Taylor Swift Thinks Emma Watson Is The Incredible Feminist We Should All Aspire To Be

    PREACH.

    Emma Watson's beautiful speech to the UN supporting feminism and the HeForShe campaign was wonderful - so of course a bunch of people had to go ahead and hate her for it. Taylor Swift doesn't have time for any of your garbage, though, and she wants you to know she's 100% behind both feminism and Watson. Like, figuratively. You get it.

    Kick-butt ladies in comics all the time, please.

    Paul Pope's New York Times best-selling graphic novel Battling Boy followed the adventures of a twelve-year-old demigod, charged with saving the city of Acropolis from an invasion of monsters.

  10. Jeff Goldblum In A Very Strange Yet Delightful Ad For Lightbulbs (?)

    Shirtless Goldblum playing piano in a hot tub alert!

    When you woke up this morning, did you think to yourself, "I haven't had enough shirtless Jeff Goldblum in my life lately?" Well me too, friend. Me too. Lucky for us, Goldblum is starring in this ridiculous new add for General Electric, put together by the guys from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!. I don't know how I feel about hearing Goldblum say "This is too moist," but that's a discussion for another time.
