    Sam Maggs — Weekend 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 (a handbook to help ladies live their nerdiest life) will be 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: Zelda Is A BAMF In Hyrule Warriors

    This princess is not content to chill in another castle.

    This gameplay footage from Nintendo's upcoming Hyrule Warriors has us so incredibly stoked - especially since six of the playable characters are female! Impa and Lana, here I come. (via GameCity)

  2. Weird Al’s “Lame Claim To Fame” Mocks Our Weak Celeb Stories

    How many degrees from Kevin Bacon are you?

    The 7th video off Weird Al's new album Mandatory Fun knows we love to brag about lame celeb encounters, and just totally makes fun of us for it. Keep your eyes peeled, because "Lame Claim to Fame" is full of references to Weird Al's past videos (My Bologna! Jurassic Park! Like A Surgeon! UHF!), and bonus points if you catch all the Dr. Demento references and appearances! (Demento gave Al his first job, you know).

  3. Dazzler’s Totally Radical ’80s Music Video, Complete With Rollerskates & Mullets

    It's, like, totally bitchin' to the max.

    Is there any superhero who screams "'80s" more than Dazzler? The mutant (alter ego Alison Blaire) is a disco queen, rollerskater, and has powers of basically being a laser lightshow. And now, she has her own '80s-style music video, too - complete with mulleted Longshot. Don't forget, the follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to take place in the '80s, so... perhaps we'll be seeing Dazzler on the big screen soon?

  4. The Amazing Cosplay At FantasyCon Proves Every Con Should Have A Giant Dragon Statue

    Giant dragon: the perfect backdrop for almost any cosplay.

    The fine, video-makin' folks at Sneaky Zebra hit up FantasyCon in Salt Lake City, and, whoa, guys, did you know Utah is apparently amazing for cosplay? Personal faves include the Deadpool fam and the gigantic dragon with its mommy. Oh, and bonus points for including my favorite dudes from Lost Girl!

  5. Things We Saw Today: A Beautiful Book Of Diverse Women In Sci-Fi And Fantasy That Needs Our Support

    Donate all the money!

    Artist Julie Dillon is running a Kickstarter campaign for this gorgeous book of fantasy art called Imagined Realms, a book of "positive and diverse illustrations of women in fantasy and science fiction," and we are definitely going to be donating. (via io9)

  6. Weird Al’s New Video For “First World Problems” Shames Us All A Little Bit

    We personally identify with far too much of this video.

    We're all guilty of getting upset over things which could unequivocally be called "First World Problems," but Weird Al isn't going to let us off the hook. This latest video from Al's new album Mandatory Fun is a Pixies-style tribute to the things we complain about that make us the worst. I mean, have we not all sighed over our the speed of our wi-fi, or the clumpiness of our mascara? I don't ever want these daily Weird Al videos to end.

  7. Oh, Right, Westeros Isn’t Real – The Game of Thrones Season 4 VFX Reel Is Pretty Amazing

    But... can dragons be real? Maybe? Please?

    Sunday nights just aren't the same now that we can't hang out with all our besties in Westeros (and Braavos and Meereen and north of the Wall). This VFX reel from the most recent season of Game of Thrones serves as a stark reminder (yeah) that GRRM's magical worlds actually aren't as real as they seem. Tragically.

  8. Joss Whedon Brings Back Buffy (On A Napkin)

    It's like theres a party in my eye sockets and everyone's invited!

    After news that the Giles TV show might still be a possibility, Joss Whedon decided to throw Buffy fans another dusty, vampire bone by resurrecting our fave fightin' blonde. Well, kinda; when a fan recently "summoned" Whedon via Twitter to wish for more Buffy, he actually appeared.

  9. Welp, Now The Entire First Episode of Doctor Who Series 8 Has Leaked

    Well, at least the Canadians aren't to blame this time.

    So, remember how the scripts for the first five episodes of the new series of Doctor Who leaked onto the internet this week? Well, prepare your Dalek defenses, because now the entire first episode featuring Peter Capaldi has made its way online.

  10. Taylor Davis As AU Violin Prodigy Ellie From The Last Of Us

    Can we get Troy Baker to sing to this?

    Gustavo Santaolalla's theme for The Last of Us is just about as haunting as the end of the game. Violinist Taylor Davis gives us a beautiful rendition of the song while rocking some rad Ellie cosplay, and it's everything we want it to be and more.
