Nerd News: Fall TV, Hardcore Disney characters, Sherlock and more

Vol. 2, Issue 20

There has been a lot of hubub this week, what with the major networks (and The CW) announcing their fall lineups. Here they are: ABC, CBS, NBC—dramas and comedies, FOX and The CW. I haven't had a chance to check out all of these shows, but it seems like quite a few have a supernatural spin. For example:

NBC's Grimm

ABC's Once Upon a Time

Last year I spent a whole week talking about new shows I was interested in, and you can bet Premiere Week will make another appearance come fall.

In other TV news:
 I am loving these altered Disney characters.


Oh hai, Eric.

And how adorable are these little Star Wars guys/gals/its?


I have no idea how Patrick Stewart could keep a straight face during this.

In movie news:

    In you-should-know-better-than-to-rely-on-Google news: A German news channel used a Star Trek logo as the logo of Seal Team Six, the team that killed Osama Bin Laden. Inappropriate to laugh at, but still, pretty hilarious.

    Have you ever wanted your very own remote-controlled superhero? (Thanks, Wes.)

    These superhero inspired outfit illustrations are great.


    I want that Green Arrow jacket!

    What would happen if Superman needed a quick change in the UK?


    Jack would be so jelly. (Thanks Helena!)

    Some deets on Mass Effect 3. I was a total one-romance kind of Commander in my play through 1 and 2, so I'm really glad Kaiden will be back. (And hopefully not as emo!)

    Ever wondered what would happen once Calving grew up and had his own children? Wonder no more! (Click to embiggen.)


    (Thanks, Shaun.)

    Beaker's my favorite. Have I mentioned that before?



    I think this lamp would look great in our Star Wars kitchen.


    And finally:


    Poor, poor Bruce.


    1. just when i thought aladdin couldn't be any hotter/more bad-ass. i love the picture of jennifer lawrence as katniss...have they announced a cinna yet? that last image seriously made me LOL. poor, poor bruce indeed :(

    2. love the disney photos and the superhero outfit inspirations!

    3. Superb reporting as usual! <3

    4. I would kill for that lamp, dude.

    5. Hey! Thanks for following - and encouraging my crush on Prince Eric!

    6. Mariel-I haven't heard of a Cinna yet. But I'm anxiously checking!

      Mandy-Aren't they great? Thanks for stopping by. :)


      Liz-Right? AMAZING.

      Annika-You're welcome! And you're welcome. ;)

    7. I have to say that this is probably my favorite nerd news so far! SOOOOO many good tidbits! Michelle Williams, Stephen Fry, Judi Dench, Simon Pegg - and that's just from the movie news. Is it wrong that Price Eric is kind of a hottie with tattoos? If it is, I don't want to be right. And yes, yes, yes to a new season of Sherlock!!

    8. Aw, thanks! And you're totally spot-on, I don't want you to be right either. ;)
