It’s always Peter, isn’t it? From Oni-killing silver arrowheads to magical tea, out of all the random deus ex machina shit we have going on, Peter is undoubtedly the most convenient plot device of them all.
Have a new werecreature in need of parentage? Have a nefarious character come back from the dead who needs a partner? Need a morally ambiguous character to give you creepy, semi-questionable advice? Decide to construct an elaborate plan to rob yourself and plot an elaborate genocide vendetta while in a coma? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Peter’s the guy for you.
A human space colony fighting for survival, a new romantic interest, and—a good Dalek? This week’s Doctor Who episode threw a lot of information at viewers, but managed to do it in an exciting way while fleshing out the character of the Twelfth Doctor, who faced off against his age-old foe. “Into the Dalek,” the second episode of Doctor Who’s eighth season, gave viewers a better taste of what exactly Capaldi is bringing into the arena, with his brutal honesty and cut throat, no fuss approach to problems. And while the episode’s theme does seem a bit formulaic (as if having the Doctor confront his worst enemy would serve as a good warmup for newcomer Capaldi), the episode is a fast-paced nail-biter, and serves as a good followup to last week’s information-heavy introduction to the new Doctor.
American Horror Story Freakshow is starting soon. I can barely contain my excitement as creepy teaser after creepy teaser is released. So far we know that it is set in the 1950’s Florida, and features a two-headed lady, bearded lady, strong man, and what appears to be a lady with three legs. Wir sind alle Freaks is the tag line for this show. It translates from German to “We are all freaks,” and that brings us to more theories about the show than I can even fathom.
The anticipation is crackling in the air among the AHS fandom! It’s exciting to speculate what all this season will entail, so to help you guess, here’s a list of all the teasers so far!
I’m biased, but if I had to choose a breakout fandom of the year for San Diego Comic Con, it would be the fannibals. For those unfamiliar with the term, fannibals are fans of the NBC show Hannibal. Even now the ripples caused by their presence at Comic Con carry on as we head toward the second half of the HeAteUs and eagerly await the third season.
How did Hannibal steal the show?
So The Gathering has come. The time when clansmen from across the land come to pledge their fealty to Colum MacKenzie and his clan. Not really sure how often this happens, but clearly once every 30ish years? So I feel like this is the kind of thing where you have to re-pledge your fealty after a while? Since I’m sure Colum has been laird for a while? Anyways, this episode is focused less on the Gathering and more on Claire’s plan to escape Castle Leoch.
