Who wants you to vote for Doctor Who at the BAFTAs? What would a facehugger cake look like? What Star Wars vehicle might be in Episode VII? What if the Little Mermaid was a dude?

I'd love to hear what you think of the Internet's greatest moments in this week's "Geek Bits."

With this final trailer before XM:DOFP, we get a little firmer grasp on the timeline and storyline. We also find out Xavier isn’t as paralyzed as it would have appeared at the end of First Class and that Quicksilver has a pretty pivotal role!

Gender Swapped Disney Characters (via Neatorama)

Why should Disney princesses have all the fun? Artist Sakimi Chan decided to gender swap her favorite Disney princesses/villains into dudes (and vice versa) - and the results are quite stunning! The details and colors of Chan's artwork are amazing in and of themselves, then the unexpected twist of gender bending the characters really propel them into a whole 'nother level.
Take a look at Sakimi Chan's wonderful gender swapped Disney characters below and at her deviantArt page:

3. Why Do People Spoil? The Psychology Behind the Spoiler (via Pajabi)
There have been countless articles written on the Internet devoted to the rules of spoilers: When they are appropriate and in what venue. Should you wait a week? A day? AT LEAST UNTIL THE WEST COAST HAS SEEN IT? Where can spoilers can be advertised (never on Facebook!) and even the appropriate use of spoilers in headlines.

Back to the Future with Pugs (via Screenrant)



Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (01x18) "Providence" (Recommended)
Synopsis: "With Colonel Glenn Talbot now on their trail, Coulson and his team seek refuge in the last place anyone would look, where they begin to uncover S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most dangerous secrets -- secrets that could destroy them all"
All the characters are being redefined as the team is destroyed and built back up again. I'm not sure if a SHIELD-Without-SHIELD show will work, but it's definitely a lot more exciting knowing there's no one they can trust. I always felt Agent Ward was a sterotpical character but the revelations of his true nature prove that he wasa a stereotype on purpose to throw the others, and us, off the track. He's a lot more complex than we thought. Agent Eric Koenig (Patton Oswalt) is wonderful as the ominous guy who's happy to see others, but trusts no one. The break-out of the Fridge should bring some much needed super-villains into the mix. Only a few more episodes left till the finale!

Arrow (02x19) "The Man Under the Hood" (Recommended)

Synopsis: "DEATHSTROKE HITS OLIVER AT HOME — Oliver (Stephen Amell), Canary (Caity Lotz), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) return to the lair and find Slade (Manu Bennett) waiting for them. An epic battle breaks out and one member of Team Arrow is sent to the hospital. Thea (Willa Holland) hits her breaking point, but just as Oliver is about to reach her, Slade intervenes and Oliver is faced with a choice – his battle with Slade or his family. Meanwhile, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) struggles with a new secret. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Geoff Johns and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Keto Shimizu (#219)." 
Another great episode as all the characters ramp up the emotions. Thea struggles to come to terms with her place in the family after the shocking revelation of her father. The team deals a major blow to Slade's operation, but we get our first taste of a fight between Slade and Arrow. It doesn't end well. Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow make a guest appearance from the new Flash show, but it feels forced. Lot's of action and emotion in this episode.

    Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!


  1. Please don't let Disney get a hold of Firefly...
    Facehugger cake. Perfect for kids!

  2. I don't really care how Batman got in Superman, just so long as the proverbial Reeses Peanut Butter Cup is good. Man of Steel lacked in the story department, so I'm hoping this one has good through lines. Though I do love his excitement about the suits. Hopefully we'll get to see them soon.

  3. Let's go be bad guys! is my favorite firefly line.

  4. The Flash stuff is kind of an annoying distraction, but it was still a good episode. Agents of SHIELD might make more sense now that I watched Captain America 2, but at some point don't they need to bring SHIELD back? Otherwise it's Agents of Nothing. It's like Archer this season when they aren't spies.

  5. I enjoyed Sakimi's pics. The cake looks scary, but I'm sure it tastes good. After all, it's still cake.

  6. I like the female version of Hades. And I'd love it if someone would make me a facehugger cake. My kids, not so much.

  7. Customary Thanksgiving formulas are generally really identifiable, and they are continually something to esteem. Notwithstanding, on the off chance that you are feeling imaginative on your family occasions and need to think of some as crisp thoughts on some antiquated top choices, here's a Thanksgiving supper menu that takes the famous cake, or pumpkin pie we may say Proverbial broth spoilers
