Nerd News: City of Bones, Gotham High, Who news and more

Vol. 3, Issue 44

Hey friends! I know I wished y'all this yesterday, but Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who are celebrating! On top of the things I mentioned yesterday, I have to admit—I'm also super thankful for pop culture. Aren't you?

In TV news:

Here are a few promos:

Doctor Who—The first is the Children in Need minisode/prequel, the second is the promo for the Christmas special "The Snowmen."

I like these Star Wars business cards (Thanks, Rebecca!), but they really needed some different typefaces in that galaxy far, far away.

  3. Hooray for Holiday updates!

    I just spent about half an hour looking at the cast list of Enders Game while everyone else was preparing lovely food and watching Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm super excited for this movie because I love the books so much, even if the author is a bigoted d-bag.

    1. I hope the movie is good. I really enjoyed the book—I've only read the first one, sadly—too.

    1. Same here! I don't quite see how it can be split up into three movies, but I will just have to wait and see. :)

  5. I might have to copy you and do a reread of The Mortal Instruments series. I'm still not completely on board with the JCB casting, but if the trailer is any indication, my mind might be changed.

    Definitely looking forward to The Hobbit and Ender's Game, as well. I absolutely adored both of those books (although, I do need to read the rest of the Ender's series).

    That Coulson doll is AMAZING!!!

    1. I wasn't on board with it either, but I like him in the trailer. I still don't see him when I read it, but we shall see. :)

      I totally lust after Hot Toys dolls (as creepy as that sounds), but they're like $200. I guess you definitely pay for the quality with them.

  6. 2 or 3 star wars a year? madness!!! glorious, glorious madness!!

    YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES!!!!!!!!!!!! one of my all time favorite movies growing up! when the food jumps out of the fridge and attacks watson??!!! scared the hell out me! i didn't want to go near the fridge for weeks!

    i think gotham high would be super fun to watch. i kept thinking about how annoying the voice over was and then i was like- oh it's harley, that makes perfect sense.

    1. Haha, I'm glad you're excited about YSH. I, honestly, don't know that I've ever seen it. Think it's on Netflix? :)
