4. 6 Photoshopped Pics of Wheaton in Star Trek (via TrekkieGirls)
"Check out some of these incredible photoshopped imaginings coming out of the Treknobabble Subreddit. Made by deadfraggle who made the TOS/TNG cross over pics that spread over the web like a secret whispered at Quarks."

1. A British Star Trek Themed Commercial Featuring William Shatner and James Doohan (via Warped Nerdiversity)
Check out this hilarious electric company commercial featuring the original series cast of Star Trek.


Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - 01x02 "0-8-4" (Recommended)
Plot: "Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents travel to Peru to investigate an object of unknown origin, codenamed 0-8-4. But when he runs into Comandante Camilla Reyes, more than just sparks fly at 30,000 feet."
I still love all the little references to the Marvel movies in this show. The action scenes are great and the final scene featuring an Avengers character took the episode to the next level. We still don't know why Coulson is (Really) alive, but Blastr compiled 18 intriguing fan theories about what's going on with Agent Coulson and it's a great list

Revolution - 02x02 "There Will Be Blood" (Recommended)
Plot: "Miles’s (Billy Burke) life is in grave danger as he finds himself in the clutches of Titus Andover (Matt Ross). Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) is determined to find Monroe (David Lyons), as Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and her father, Dr. Porter (Stephen Collins) desperately attempt to revive Aaron (Zak Orth). Meanwhile, Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) hatches a plan to infiltrate the Patriots."
Another episode that shows the tone of the show has changed dramatically and going back to it's roots. Lots more sword-fighting. Lots of grit and grime. The bad guys are bad. The good guys are good and this season is looking up.

    Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!


  1. I agreed with that letter to Abrams. Please no more Senate sessions and cute kids!

  2. I like the Star Trek clip! Some great Star Trek News today.
    Hope we get some better shots of Ant Man soon.
    And thanks for including the Star Wars clip I found! Remember rule number five - keep Lucas away.

  3. Need more Ant Man!
    I'd watch whatever Hayley Atwell is in.

  4. That's not a great shot of Antman. Looks like a photo my dad would take. He excels at photographing people's behinds.

  5. Thanks to the Star Trek commercial, I got to see a hilarious Star Trek: Voyager casting spoof featuring members of the Frasier cast.

    As far as the advice to JJ Abrams...are they saying that it has to be exactly like the original trilogy? Because that's what I'm getting from it. Is that also why so many people had such problems with the prequels? Because I call that ridiculous.

    Also, in a somewhat related note, that shot of Ant-Man makes him look like Boba Fett. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  6. Ant-Man - really? That's well, I guess amazing - no real opinion as I wasn't aware of such a thing, but now will check it out!

  7. $94,000 is a lot for a comic book.

    Whether JJ Abrams follows those rules or not, I'm sure he'll make much better films than the last three. I absolutely hated the final one.

  8. I'm really looking forward to a "smaller" Marvel movie with one of the lesser light characters - this could be really fun!

  9. Finally adding Dr. Pym and his various incarnations to the Avengers/marvel film universe is long over due. Now where is Namor, The Wasp and Hercules?

  10. Let's just avoid any talk of Federations at all.
