Sorry Robert Downey, Jr. but I’m pretty sure when the young un’s think of Sherlock Holmes, they will think of Benedict Cumberbatch.
BBC’s Sherlock brought Sherlock Holmes back into pop culture in a big bad way and it’s a flat-out amazing series. Even I— someone who will never understand the passionate Cumberbatch fandom love—enjoys watching this show. It’s smart and different while paying respects to the original work.
We all have our favorite anime – the ones we will perpetually always tell friends they just have to watch with a crazy look in our eyes as we grip their shoulders tight [btw you should watch FMA: Brotherhood no srsly go watch it WATCH IT NOW]. But what about the ones that don’t make the cut? What about these anime turns us away before even finishing one season? Or stopping in the middle of one?
I’m generally not a very picky person when it comes to being entertained, but there have been some anime in my life that I have stopped watching, and I decided to go through and figure out what it was about some of these that got me to stop.
Please note that I am not saying these anime are bad. I’m simply stating what I, personally, didn’t enjoy about them. thx <3

Welcome to Night Vale took the podcast medium to a new level. A brilliant level. A creepy but fun level. I’ve only recently became a fan of this series and caught up with all the episodes in a matter of a couple of months (I do a lot of driving…). I love Cecil and the people of Night Vale, their stories and their struggles. Despite being an audio show, the Night Vale fandom is very creative and although I am not sure how the canon of how Cecil and crew look like was establish… it’s neat nonetheless! Which is why I dedicate this Fanart GLEE to you, citizens of Night Vale.
Zombies have become such a huge part of mainstream media today that I am pretty sure there has been many conversations between friends that led to the question, “What would YOU do during the zombie apocalypse?”
That is what Wasted is about and we spoke to producer Steve Kasan about the series and the CineCoup challenge that they are currently participating in.
Tell us about Wasted and where did the inspiration for it come from?
Wasted is about a group of friends in their mid 30s struggling in their lives with work, responsibilities and other things out of their control which goes completely out the window when the Zombie Apocalypse happens. When there is no rules, they get Wasted. The story starts with this group having a discussion as to what they would do if a zombie apocalypse were to happen after watching their favourite zombie franchise, Dealing with the Dead, starring their favourite Zombie Killer actress, Lovina.
When they step outside to get something to eat they find a zombie apocalypse has happened. Now they must use their knowledge from video games, comic books, literature, movies, the internet, and life to survive & have high adventures in the waste land.
The Lady Geeks move on to other topics that does not involve a franchise about cars and has Vin Diesel in it. In this episode, we talk Daredevil, the first movies that made us ‘think’ and how women are unbreakable. Fanfic Theatre: My Immortal.
