The BBC Is Doing A New Robin Hood Show, And It Looks Effing Bonkers

Not Robin Hood: Men In Tights bonkers, but more bonkers than the Kevin Costner Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. To give you an idea of the level of bonk we can expect here, it’ll center on the Sheriff of Nottingham, evil sneering government lackey by day, crime fighter by night.

Zooey Deschanel Is Producing an Animated Fairy Tale Sitcom for Fox

Kristen Wiig Cinderella is looking all judgey-judgey in this pic, but I actually have optimistic feelings about Queen of Everything. I just couldn’t resist having her facial expression on The Mary Sue. I feel a very spiritual connection to it.

Check Out The “Adult” Trailer For The Wolf Among Us Episode 2

Not that Fables is a kid-friendly comic book but woah, hey, there’s a boob shot in this trailer for Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us Episode 2. But besides that, it’s a nice teaser of what’s to come when it’s released next week. Can’t wait to get my hands on it, then play it through my two different scenarios from Episode 1.

Is Warner Bros. Prepping Not One, Not Two, Not Five, But Six King Arthur Movies?

As a subject, King Arthur movies never really die out. If there’s a particularly bad one it will retreat to the Isle of Avalon, lying in wait until a big studio needs a tentpole with name recognition. Then it will emerge from the mists of time, ready to reclaim its fantasy throne from the upstarts. You thought you were the apex of the sword and sorcery genre, Game of Thrones. You know nothing.

It’s about that time again, as after several false starts Warner Bros. is reportedly considering a six-film King Arthur saga, to be directed by Guy Ritchie.

Once Upon a Time’s Jamie Chung On Mulan’s Sexuality, How They Just Need to Give Her a Plotline Already, Dammit

“It was like an on-going inside joke between [Aurora actress] Sarah Bolger and I. ‘I secretly, like, really care about you.’… The audience…there’s this conspiracy online, ‘Mulan loves Aurora!’ And I’m really glad the writers listened because I really think they planned that from the beginning. They’re all about twists and, like, why not, you know? It felt so natural to begin with.” — Look, I know the news about Once Upon a Time‘s Mulan being bi/gay/whatever/just in love with a woman isn’t exactly new; the episode where her feelings were confirmed came out months ago. But I’m still a little pleasantly shocked that Once, of all shows, went there (because Disney), so if Mulan actress Jamie Chung talks at a press junket for her new show Believe about how open Once‘s writers were to Mulan and Aurora’s obvious chemistry, well…  it’s too cool not to share, is what I’m saying. Chung also said that her new gig doesn’t necessarily mean Mulan is leaving the Onceverse for good: “I think it would be really disappointing to leave the audience with this giant question mark. I would go back in a heartbeat. I am committed to [Believe], but I don’t think that door is shut so I’m hoping there is something we can do to answer those questions… I would love more character development…something to sink my teeth into with that character.” Yes. Once, turn the camera away from the same old stories for once (Regina’s good! She’s evil! Good! Evil!) and focus on some of those excellent side characters you have for more than an episode at a time.

Doctor Who‘s Strax Gets His Shakespeare On With Lindalee Rose [VIDEO]

Not gonna lie, it’s weird hearing Strax’s voice come from Dan Starkey when he’s not dressed as a potato. And I’m not exactly sure why he and Lindalee Rose are reciting Romeo and Juliet together? Except that it’s fun, which is good enough for me. I tried to imagine a Doctor Who Romeo and Juliet AU, but you Madame Vastra would come along and slap down that teenage obsession tomfoolery right quick.

“History’s Forgotten Women” Get Their Own… Eyeshadow Line?

OK then. This is Ignis Antiquita, a line of 40 eyeshadows “inspired by the amazing, fiery, passionate, strong women who have been largely forgotten in our history books, or had their histories revised due to the fact that they were what they were- WOMEN!” Here are descriptions of all the women included. Before you scoff at the idea of famous women of history being paired with a makeup line—let me say A) there’s nothing wrong with makeup itself, and B) Ignis Antiquita wasn’t created by some huge conglomerate seeking to take advantage of the struggles of women to sell some impossible beauty standard, but by independently owned company Aromaleigh. I can only assume founder Kristen Leigh Bell thought “You know what’s cool? Eyeshadow. You know what’s also cool? Historical women!”

True on both counts.

The UK’s “Downton Law” Seeks to Let Women Inherit Titles

At first I was going to go with a happy image of Downton Abbey‘s Mary Crawley, since doubtless if this bill had been passed back in her day she’d have been very pleased to be able to inherit her father’s title herself instead of having to marry her cousin Matthew. You know, assuming she weren’t fictional. But the allure of the Mary Crawley “judging you” look is just too strong.

…but it won’t be on Netflix, so you’ll have to actually wait a week between episodes instead of binging all at once. I know, I know. The struggle is real.
