Shocking Moments from Great TV Shows: OMGWTFBBQ!

Shocking Moments from Great TV Shows: OMGWTFBBQ!

Great TV shows are often punctuated with OMG moments— those shocking twists you never saw coming which hit us like a freight train full of plutonium. While some shows are content to sit back and entertain the glazed-eyed masses with recycled punchlines and canned laughs, the shows on this list put the dramaaaaa in drama.

Marvel’s Thor Gets a Mighty Exciting Makeover

Marvel’s Thor Gets a Mighty Exciting Makeover

Marvel-650x374

Thank heavens for Marvel! People (yes, men and women both) have been demanding that comic book companies and writers join the rest of us in the 21st Century by adding superheroines who are just as important, appropriately clothed, and strong as the superheroes. Thus far, between Marvel and DC, Marvel seems to be winning the race handily. Their newest announcement has me so excited that I want to…

What to Expect When You’re Expecting Evil: Horrifying Movie Pregnancies

What to Expect When You’re Expecting Evil: Horrifying Movie Pregnancies

Pregnancy: without it, we’d go extinct. But, just because it’s completely necessary doesn’t mean it isn’t totally scary and gross. When a woman gets pregnant, all sorts of magical things take place, like bizarre food cravings, mood swings, morning sickness, and the occasional bout of laser vision. Still, even though being with child is a strange, often tense experience, we can almost always rest…

CosPlay by the Rules!

CosPlay by the Rules!

I’ve been to a few cons in my day- my first when I was barely knee high and my most recent just today with a stop in at WonderCon 2012 in Anaheim. Personally, I hope to be showing up at conventions for all time because not only is it a haven for geekery and pop culture information, but there is always lots of great people watching to be had. I’m a psychologist by trade, so human behavior is one…

TV Shows That Were Cancelled Too Early

TV Shows That Were Cancelled Too Early

Television is often a double edged sword- it can provide limitless entertainment and then take it all away. Everyone has experienced watching a show and loving it only to have it cancelled with an incomplete story told. Some shows will at least get somewhat of an ending even though it came sooner than expected, and there are those who have ended on a cliffhanger, driving us all mad. So let’s take…

No Pulse, No Problem: Quirky Zombie Movies

No Pulse, No Problem: Quirky Zombie Movies

Warm Bodies is a zombie/young adult/romance, which doesn’t seem like a genre blend that should work, but somehow it does. It’s not the first flick to blend genres in non-traditional ways, however. Sure, Shaun of the Dead is probably the most well-known zombified genre smash, blending the undead with a romantic comedy, but there are several lesser-known films which utilize the walking dead to tell…

10 Things X-Men: Days of Future Past Does Right

10 Things X-Men: Days of Future Past Does Right

Not only does Charles Xavier get his hope back, but fans do as well for the future of X-Men movies thanks to X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s easily my favorite movie of the summer thus far thanks to the return of director Bryan Singer, who directed X-Men and X2.In the latest x-outing, Wolverine goes back in time to find a very young and lost Charles Xavier, hoping to work with him to fix the…
