So, in case you were away from the internet all day yesterday and today, BBC announced who the 12th Doctor is going to be. Welcome aboard, Peter Capaldi! Doctor Who fans will recognize him from “The Fires of Pompeii”, but he’s been in loads of brilliant television across the pond. I personally can’t wait for his first episode.
Neil Gaiman is an incredible author. He’s an incredible storyteller. That isn’t really an opinion. It’s more of a known fact. He can create worlds within this world, and make us almost believe it’s real. He can create characters that seem like they’re on the edges of society, but really, they’re just like us.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is no exception.
So, I know we haven’t been the world’s best at recording new podcasts. And by “not the world’s best”, I mean “I’m sorry we haven’t been in the same room since GeekOut.” But! Emily and I went to Asheville to record with Figures Sold Separately, another local nerdy gang. You can listen here.
Man of Steel seems to be the most polarizing film of 2013. You either absolutely love the film, or you absolutely hate it. There doesn’t seem to be an in-between. With that in mind, we would like to take a look at DC’s latest film and third incarnation of Superman on the big screen. This review will be different from most. It will be from the opinions of both a fan of Superman, and someone who isn’t too fond of the big blue boyscout.

So Netflix has been doing this really cool thing this year. They’ve started picking up on fans’ habits of watching a season of a television show in a day, and they’ve started creating their own shows. It all started with House of Cards, and it moved on to the Eli Roth-produced horror show Hemlock Grove.
Goodness, there was too much pretty in this show.
As some of you may know (or may not, if you don’t have Twitter or Tumblr), Matt Smith has announced that this year’s Christmas special will be his last episode as the Doctor. While this is of course somewhat sad news, I personally can’t wait to see what projects he has coming up. I just hope he gets as lovely of a send off as David Tennant had.

So Doctor Who ended last Saturday. Well, this season/series (for wherever you’re reading from). And obviously it was picked up for another season/series. But some of the deep love for the show is starting to fade.
WARNING: After the cut there will be spoilers. Spoilers galore. Like River’s notebook. But worse. Tread with caution. Continue reading
So, we don’t really talk about bandoms. But we’re going to! Here’s the beginning of it.
So, by the magical powers of technology, our podcasts are now on iTunes! You can just look us up in the iTunes store and BOOM! We’re there! So yay!

So you guys know how I was freaking out about BBC Radio 4’s production of Neverwhere? Well, it aired this past Saturday. And it’s so good. Seriously. I really dig radio plays, and I really dig pretty much everything BBC does (*cough* hence why I want to work there *cough*). Give it a shot! It’s got Neil himself as a character! Check it out here. It’s about an hour per section, but it’s perfectly eerie and spooky. And it’s got Anthony Head as Croup!
