…Attack

Happy Monday, and more importantly, happy Shark Week!

Yesterday saw the beginning of the 29th year of this mid-summer, Discovery Channel tradition.

Last night’s big event — Michael Phelps vs. a Great White Shark — disappointed some, since Discovery didn’t make the Olympic athlete swim in open water with an actual Great White.

Yes, people can be strange, but the beginning of Shark Week provides the perfect motivation to kick off your week. After all, what’s more motivating than a shark? Read the rest of this entry

…have fun with it

comic-con-2016-tv-panelsThere are those out there who shake their heads at the mere mention of Comic-Con, rolling their eyes at the mere mention of a fandom, let alone the unbridled joy of cosplay and teaser trailers. If you are one of those people, I trust that you’ve already navigated away from this page.

Because this Sunday, Funday brings with it a wealth of teaser trailers fresh off the Comic-Con presses, so I’ll go ahead and get right to it, and let you get right to the rest of your day of rest (however you choose to spend it). Read the rest of this entry

…Get Your Geek On

It’s day three of Comic-Con, which means that after a double feature summer blockbuster week, we have a lot of catching up to do. From old favorites like AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” to newbies like Netflix’s “The Defenders,” the first two days of Comic-Con have been filled with plenty to chat about.

So, without further ado, here are some of this year’s highlights…so far. Read the rest of this entry

…Play With Fire and Ice

Television nerds, today is a good day. Why? Well, if you have to ask, you may need to hand in your television nerd card.

First up, there’s the Men’s Wimbledon Final. Which we’ll all be watching, eagerly awaiting the match’s outcome, and some of us may be watching with slightly more enthusiasm for what comes next. Read the rest of this entry

…make a racket

doctor_who_experience_28810552067329Happy Wimbledon Finals Weekend, tennis fans! And for the Whovians out there, happy weekend that we find out who the next Doctor is once the tennis is over!

For the non-Whovians, you’ve had more than 50 years to catch on, but I’ll catch you up. Much like James Bond, the Doctor has had many faces throughout the years, unlike James Bond, he actually changes faces within the plot of the show. (If you need more explanation than that, here’s our overview from the last changing of the Doctor.)

Sunday, the 13th Doctor will be announced (although it’s really the 15th if you’re a super nerd) following the men’s final at Wimbledon. You might say they’ll take it from tennis to the TARDIS (I can do this all day).

Until now, the role of the Doctor has maintained a streak of male actors (and they’ve done a fantastic job). But the buzz for a lady Doctor has only grown in the last few years and seeing as today was the women’s finals at Wimbledon, I thought I’d take a moment to explore the female frontrunners (even if the actual front runner of the moment is male…a girl can dream).
