Happy 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).

The time we all knew was coming is here—the end of the network television season. Back in the dark ages, before streaming and Netflix original programing, that meant that couch potatoes were forced to watch reruns or (gasp) find something other than television to occupy their time.
Thankfully, the television season never ends, and this is also the time of year when networks announce what’s in the pipeline for the upcoming season. So you can spend this time planning out your fall television viewing schedule. Read the rest of this entry
Once upon a What to Watch Wednesday, in an enchanted box lived a horrible, monstrous pilot. One day, villagers from far and wide sat down at their boxes to see their evening tales, and what they saw sent many of them running, never to return.
Yet a few stayed, not frightened, but intrigued by what might lie beyond that ghastly first meeting.
Join me as I weave a magical tale of what can happen when you look past first impressions to give those beastly (at first sight) shows another chance…
This What to Watch Wednesday, we return to what is (at least on the surface) familiar setting for film and television fans—the Marvel Universe.
I know many out there are probably shaking their heads at “yet another superhero story.” And I can’t say I blame you. It does seem we are likely fast approaching over-saturation in this particular genre. But I implore you to bear with me just for a moment.
It’s true, reimagining the superhero is nothing new. This current wave is nearly entirely riding on the power of the b-list stories (apologies Iron Man, but it’s true). So, the surface-level concept here is nothing new. At first glance, you may not even recognize the universe of “Legion.” Read the rest of this entry
I hope you’ve had a productive (or relaxing, if that’s your thing) first day of your weekend. If you have any errands that needed to be completed, I hope you had success, because from here on out, television fans, it’s going to be busy. Get your walking in now, you’ve got lots of watching to do. Read the rest of this entry
