With bonus Carrie Kelley cameo!
Oh, sure, everybody wants to find their ideal crimefighting partner through a mutual friend or at a social gathering, but who has the time to go out and punch villains with new people anymore? Dr. Hank Tannen (who may or may not be Wil Wheaton) doesn't, which is why he invented this new dating app. Wait, no. Not dating. It's not for dating. Don't date your sidekicks. [Warning for autoplay!]Read More

Those looking forward to American Horror Story: Freak Show have only until October 8th to wait. I should catch up on AHS, right? I feel like I should.Read More
Ice T, Felicia Day, Weird Al, and Other Celebs Record Dungeons and Dragons Short Story Collection for Audible
Don't hate the playa, hate the campaign.
If you're not a regular listener of Ice T's Final Level podcast (in which case you should rectify this problem immediately), then you may have missed the news a few months ago that the rapper-turned-SVU-detective recently recorded the narration for a short story based on the world of Dungeons and Dragons. Now we finally get to hear the fruits of his labor — and geez, would you look at who else is in this cast?Read More
And the rest of these NerdHQ panels don't suck, either.
Zachary Levi and the Nerd Machine crew are running Conversations for a Cause (benefitting Operation Smile) all of SDCC weekend; but watching the "Badass Women" panel will directly benefit you, because why would you not want to watch Yvonne Strahovski, Retta, Jennifer Morrison, Sophie Turner, Ming-Na Wen, and Missy Peregrym chat about being amazing together?Read More
This calls for dancing and capes!
In an recent interview with GQ, nerd superstar and host of The Wil Wheaton Project Wil Wheaton (gee, I wonder where they got the name of his show from?) had some really excellent things to say about what it means to be a geek. Or a nerd. Whatever puts your starship into hyperdrive, I guess.Read More
No, not The Wizard. This is a documentary.
Movies have been made about gamers, and movies have been made that are adapted from games, but movies that are actually about games aren't very common. Video Games: The Movie changes that with a documentary look at our nation's pastime—take that, baseball!—and much like video games are different things to different people, so this movie will be.Read More
“He had hair of gold like his uncle, because of incest”

You're Damn Right
"I think there's quite a few reasons but I think what it does is it sort of normalizes having a lead female. It's just, the default. So often the male perspective is our default perspective in television in film and in all kinds of different media and I think what this show does is it just goes, 'nope.' Women can be all these different things. It's played by the same actress but we have the potential for so many things and not defined by how we look necessarily because it's just me...I don't feel responsible, I feel proud of it. I don't feel like it has to be "right" or all-encompassing. I think, Jordan, you've talked about that quite a bit with Felix too that we don't have to represent every type of person out there but it's just nice to have outsiders as the leads." - Tatiana Maslany answering Cloneversation host Wil Wheaton after he brought up how much the BBC America series Orphan Black has resonated with women.

Feel free to start a Good Guy Will Wheaton meme, Internet.

This video might be a bit old—it was taken at least year's Denver Comic Con—but it's never a bad time to listen to Wil Wheaton say good things about being a nerd, right?

pic.twitter.com/tREOdio498 — Patrick Stewart (@SirPatStew) February 3, 2014I know this may be difficult to believe, but the best part of Sir Patrick Stewart's reaction to the Seahawks thumping the Broncos at last night's Super Bowl isn't the 73-year-old thesp rocking a one-armed push-up.
