Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo is right around the corner — as in, it’s this weekend (ahh!) and we are once again, really looking forward to it. This year, the holy grail is finally arriving at the convention. His name is Kevin Conroy and we’re going to stalk the heck out of the guy (apologies in advance?). If you have ever read this blog or listened to our podcast, you are aware of mine and Gizzy B’s love for Batman: The Animated Series. No other actor has played Batman longer than Kevin Conroy and although Batman’s face changes in animation, the voice will always be the same for me. To this day, I get really excited when I hear his voice playing Batman in either a new animated movie or the video games.
In this episode, the Lady Geeks bring you the most disturbing of all Spider News yet. A new Geek Hero has been declared and we defend the rights of creepy clowns to exist. Plus, a special edition of Giselle’s Journal Theatre, a MUST hear.
Max and Shred, a show about two boys. One is superstar snowboard and one is the neurotic superstar academic. An unlikely friendship? Always! But today, we spoke with the other important man on the show — Jean Michael Le Gal, who plays the household patriarch who wants to be young again. Read the interview below and don’t forget to catch Max and Shred on Nickelodeon or if you’re our pals in Canada, on YTV!
Tell us about Max and Shred and your character, Lloyd Ackerman. What makes Lloyd the coolest character on the show?
Well I don’t know about ‘coolest’, but what is cool about Lloyd is that he’s always eager to try anything. Like that friend who will always do a dare. Also, he’s a grown up kid, which is secretly what most adults want to be.
You know, it’s true — Canada gets a lot of cool shows, and one of those include Space and SyFy’s original series, BITTEN. Enough with the male driven cast of werewolves show! Bitten is about a female werewolf and her struggle between her supernatural world while trying to live a normal life. Tommie-Amber Pirie joins the cast of BITTEN and was kind enough to answer a few questions about her upcoming role as a witch on the show. Werewolves and witches, need I say more? Read on and get to know Tommie-Amber with us. Did we mention she had worked with Daniel Radcliffe before as well?
Tell us about joining the cast of BITTEN and your role as a witch? What can you tell us about your character?
Yes! I have had the pleasure of joining the amazing team of the BITTEN cast and crew for season two as a witch named Paige Winterbourne. Her and her coven join the pack in this up and coming season and many exciting things ensue! I can’t say too much about her role in the season but know that she is a great addition to the series. Not only because I have a job! Ha! But because more female power on this show rocks! Everything thus far had been utterly enjoyable. I am thrilled to go to work every day.
Some hate us, think us outlaws to hang at the gallows.
Some fear us, think us demons to burn at the stake.
Some worship us, think us children of the gods.
But all know us.
Once a blacksmith’s apprentice, Dante is wary of Adelina’s presence on the team. Both hulking and menacing, Spider would like nothing more than to rid himself of the new recruit. Like the others, he is marked as a Young Elite by the dark irregular markings on his neck that go all the way down to his chest. He’s known as the Spider for his abilities to see in darkness.
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Batman, the Warner Bros VIP Tour‘s museum is currently dedicated to all things Batman movies. For one day, I became a tourist in my own city just to satisfy my geek urges. The tour itself is pretty fun, especially if you love the behind the scenes experience of movie and television. The exhibit itself mostly showcased costumes and props from the Christopher Nolan trilogy but they added really cool pieces from the 80s and 90s movies as well. There is also a separate warehouse that showcased some of the Batmobiles.
Although, sadly, no Adam West’s Batman.
I recommend this to any local Batman fans . . . or if you happen to be visiting Los Angeles! It’s obnoxiously touristy but get a group of Batfans together in one tour and you’ll probably have tons of fun.
