Because teenagerdom is a mess, but some people handle it better than others.

If you’re a fan of both Image Comics’ Saga and The CW’s Supernatural, last night must have been pretty awesome for you. Fellow geeky redhead Felicia Day guest-starred on the series once again but wore a t-shirt with someone familiar on it. Yup. Lying Cat from Saga. Hit the jump for a few more looks.READ MORE

Ahhh, binge watching. I love it and I hate it. Thinking of that time I watched 16 episodes of Community in one day fills me with pride, just as remembering how I spent that whole day slouched on the sofa, smelly and covered in popcorn kernels and spilled salsa, makes me feel the tiniest bit bad about the direction my life has taken.
Even if we feel bad about binge watching, we’ve all done it. And a recent study by The NPD Group has determined which shows we’re binge-watching most frequently.READ MORE

Has there ever been a more harmonious conflation of style and medium than the pixelated aesthetic popularized by early computer graphics and the comparatively ancient craft of cross-stitched embroidery? Perhaps the triple conflation of cross stitched sprites for popular cultural touchstones whether or not they’re related to video games. XStitchMyHeart has a great wealth of patterns for the cross stitchy nerd, or anyone who knows one.READ MORE

Tilt one of SirOctopusDesigns’ action cards to the side, and the little figure races along its track in imitation of a wide variety of movie and television scenes… where somebody fell to their death and it made you doubt the purpose of doing anything at all in this uncaring universe. So when I say there’s a card in here for fans of Doctor Who, Sherlock, Thor, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Supernatural, what I mean is that these cards are a cruel but hilarious gift for fans of Doctor Who, Sherlock, Thor, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Supernatural. Here’s a gallery of gifs featuring the cards in glorious action.
Needless to say, this post contains spoilers for the above listed shows and movies.READ MORE

Depending on which universe you live in, monster hunting can be lucrative business. Or not so lucrative, as the Ghostbusters have discovered from time to time. Monsters are, well, monstrous, and not many people can claim affection for them. So what’s a person to do? Kill them, of course! Some of the hunters we’ve included on this list work for an organization and/or get paid for their trouble, but most hunt down creatures of the night for revenge, for fun, or for some combination of both.READ MORE

Just in case you forgot who Batman was, here’s a fantastic supercut of lots of people claiming to be Batman. Now obviously, we all know there is only one Batman and his name is Bruce Wayne, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t have a little fun playing pretend now and then. Watch as several actors who have played Batman on the screen take their turn claiming the title, while several others from our geek realm try the same.

To simply say that The Power of Three is a popular trope would be to vastly understate its importance in creative works. The Trio pops up all over film, television, literature, and assorted other mediums. The concept of three plays with and unseats our natural preference for the more stolid (or boring!) number two and creates something more unstable, and with inherently more possibilities. You won’t be surprised to see a lot of our picks have got some… issues to work out.READ MORE

There are many things in TV news that have the ability to fill us with joy. Few of them are as effective, however, as when you promise to reunite some Buffy alums. (We’ve been trying to rally the fandom to get Sarah Michele Gellar a guest starring role on Bones for years.)
News broke yesterday on just such a pairing. No, not SMG–she has her own show on The CW to worry about now. Instead, Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters–Cordelia and Spike, from Buffy and Angel, for those of you who read this site and somehow don’t know–are slated to appear in an episode of Supernatural, playing an unhappily married couple.READ MORE
