October 31, 2009

I’m a little ashamed to admit this, but YAY only one week to go until the Season 2 Premiere of Legend of the Seeker! Yes, the return of cute woodsman-cum-hero Richard, his drop dead gorgeous and kick ass true wuv Kahlan and Zeddicus Zu’l ‘Cockblock’ Zorander is only SEVEN DAYS AWAY! Remember the woman on […]

In this totally, totally adorable video, Lenora Crichlow, Aidan Turner and Russell Tovey wish their fans a happy Halloween. I LOVE THEM. That is all.

Are friends electric? ~ Dollhouse 1.13/2.1

October 25, 2009

‘Epitaph One’ is the thirteenth episode of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse (Season One), an epilogue produced for a fraction of the regular show’s budget to create the required amount of episodes for the international and DVD market.

It’s a cool […]

Nine Rehearsal Montage

I’m looking forward to this movie. Chicago may be radically different from the stage show but it’s still a pretty good film, and Nine looks to be basically the same style. It’s also got some awesome actresses in it – Cotillard, Kidman, Cruz, Dench…and, uh, Fergie. And DDL, who is amazing.

All singing, all dancing ~ Glee

October 17, 2009

The pilot for hot new show Glee aired absolutely ages ago, but it’s now running as a full series and is well worth checking out…unless you’re like my boyfriend and are a soulless hater of musicals. The show follows a group of misfits who attend their high school’s ‘Glee Club’ (if, like me, you have […]

Warehouse 13: More formulaic than Homer

October 11, 2009

Apparently Warehouse 13 has been a huge hit for Syfy (still lmao over that name), so on a whim I decided to check out episode one. It’s a fun, light-hearted sci-fi/crime mix that could be a really good show…but unfortunately contains very little in the way of originality. (very light spoilers)
