  1. The Stars of NBC’s Constantine Talk Source Material And Character Dynamics

    Cautiously Optimistic

    The 2005 film Constantine will forever have a place in my heart. It's not a great movie, but I saw it on a whim with an acquaintance I barely knew. She became my roommate and one of my dearest friends, thanks to bonding over the greatness of Tilda Swinton and the rampant silliness of the rest. Whenever I hear someone mention the on-screen version of John Constantine, I think of her, laughing all the way out of the theater. Judging by its trailer, NBC's upcoming Constantine series is an entirely different ball game. It looks properly dark and witty, and there was one visual effect that made me recoil from my keyboard ("Nana!"). By all accounts, the series hopes to win over comic fans. In a recent interview with IGN, lead actor Matt Ryan touched on just that.

  3. Why You Should Watch Defiance, The Heir to Battlestar Galactica

    Essay

    June 19 marks the return of Defiance, the Syfy drama about a future Earth in which humans and various races of alien must cohabitate. In spite of being a moderate ratings success in its first season, Defiance has failed to garner the kind of critical attention it deserves. By which I mean: The people I love who love sci-fi still aren’t watching this show, and it makes me sad. It’s especially heartbreaking to see the Warehouse 13 fandom donning black armbands in preparation for the last episode and wanting to shout “Guys! There’s a place for you! And HG Wells is there and everything!” Since you have just enough time to catch up on season one, I’m here to tell you why Defiance is the new face of smart sci-fi. Just imagine I’ve got you cornered in a bar and am in that specific stage of drunk where you just want to explain how great something is.

  4. Penny Dreadful Gets a Season Two Renewal From Showtime!

    We're happier than... well, any of the Penny Dreadful characters, really.

    Great news if you're a fan of Penny Dreadful (and you should be because it is great)! The show just got picked up for a second season according to Deadline. That means more weird terrifying literary spookiness will be had by all. We're really big fans of this show, so we're glad to see it's being kept alive.

  5. Hulu Is in Talks to Bring Community Back to Life for a Sixth Season!

    Now, about that "and a movie"...

    When the official announcement of Community's cancelation came through, I (and approximately infinity other fans) tweeted to Dan Harmon asking if Netflix had called yet. Cult shows like Community are a perfect fit for digital platforms, and it looks like Hulu might grab this one.

  8. In Which Brave Adults Rewatch The Nightmare Fuel Of Their Youth [Video]

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    After I saw this video of adults revisiting the scary movies of their younger years, I thought to myself -- hey! What better way to start a Sunday than by slaying the monsters under our beds? I'll start: Judge Doom's fake eyes falling out. The death of Tasha Yar. Maleficent appearing in Aurora's fireplace. Velociraptors stalking Lex and Tim through the kitchen. The entirety of The Secret of NIMH. That freaking story arc on Ghostwriter with the bubblegum monster. (via Screen Rant)

  9. Eighth Season Doctor Who Gets An August Release and New Teaser Trailer

    Hang on to your oddly-colored kidneys, kids!

    Sure, it's just a darkened silhouette of Peter Capaldi, and maybe we have been pretty hard on the show for the past couple of seasons. But good lord, if this didn't get all of us hella pumped and generally non-verbal. Just -- look at him. Ahhhh!

  10. Haters Gonna Hate: I Love The Big Bang Theory

    Essay

    The Big Bang Theory takes a lot of crap from the nerd community. We have a hard time being happy, don’t we? The science is too sciency. The science isn’t sciency enough. Where are the women? Well we don’t like those women – give us some we can. Don’t get me wrong: I like to pick apart a TV show just as much as the next girl. But I really love The Big Bang Theory, and the reason why might surprise you. I totally adore the women in the show. Yeah, I said it. I totally adore Penny and her Lady Posse.
