  1. there was an absurd amount of rebecca in this weeks post- proof i didn't work this week and just sat on the couch trolling the interwebs. basically i am steven moffat.
    and as great/disturbing as it might be lebron james' people are saying tat he is not connected to the project in anyway. i don't know if that's because they haven't talked to him yet or if he has turned down the project- but he is not involved. http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-basketball/24451685/report-no-space-jam-2-planned-for-lebron-james

  2. LEGO Doctor Who. Yes! I can see Matt Ryan as John Constantine. Be nice to get back to basics with that character. Okay - I am completely distracted by that TMNT KD commercial. 1) Go ninja, go ninja, go! 2) It 100% makes me yearn for the Super Mario Bros. KD of olde. (So. Good!)

    And Hannibal. I do not get this excited for television, but I am just so stoked for tomorrow night! (Or, let's face it, Saturday morning for me.... )

  3. Perhaps I'm cynical, but I am an immediate skeptic about anything new for the Farscape universe! I wasn't even 100% sold on the The Peacekeepers Wars (I love that it wrapped things up obviously, but parts were cringeworthy to me).
    A black widow movie intrigues me. I don't know any of her character other than the movies, so I'd be curious whether it'd be an origin story or something new!
    Watching the human loop-de-loop made me feel extra lazy, haha. But seriously, it was awesome!
    Love the Loki high fashion outfit! I'd definitely rock that.
    Lip sync bars should be the new karaoke bars.

  4. Wow sooooo much great info! I'm so excited about Hannibal. I love Mads Mikkelsen and Hannibal is a perfect role for him :)

  5. HOLY CRAP - It's going to take me ages to get through this post! I wish the wifi at work worked better this morning so I could get a head start. YOU ARE AMAZING at finding so many awesome things!


    I'm not sure how I feel about the Black Widow movie or Heroes returning.

  6. I love all of the art you share. :)


    Jimmy Fallon and his guests have been killing it! I've never been a regular viewer of late night shows, but I haven't missed a Jimmy ep yet!

  7. Fangirl is on my list! I am currently reading The Queen's Bed: An Intimate history of Elizabeth's Court. Quite interesting!

  8. Fangirl is so wonderful. I hope you enjoy it!

    And that does sound interesting! I'll have to look it up.

  9. You deserve your own contributor nickname, for sure. I'll have to think on it.

    And thanks for the update on Lebron!

  10. Can't wait to see the premiere this weekend! I won't be watching it tonight, either. I need to watch Hannibal in the daylight.

  11. There's always iffy bits when something comes back after so many years of being off the air, too. I just love the whole crew so much! My excitement about anything new Farscape outweighs my critical thinking.

  12. Thanks, Mindi! And yes, he really is delightful (ly frightening) in the role.

  13. It was a biggun this week! :)


    I could care less about Heroes, to be honest. I think I dropped off after the first season and a half. It just got weird.

  14. Thanks! I love to share it with you guys.


    I'm rarely up late enough to watch late night TV either, but I do like to check it out from time to time on the YouTubes.

  15. Totally agree, I didn't realize there was a third season, even!

  16. I want all of the Avengers dresses. And the Vanilla Ice Turtle Rap commercial? That will be me. And my poor, embarrassed child. Not even sorry.
