Doctor Who - Regeneration Girl

Image
*This article contains spoilers from Season 6, Episode 2: “Day of the Moon”. You’ve been warned.
The new season of Doctor Who started with a two part story that had people sitting on the edge of their seats and then ultimately fall right off as their jaws hit the ground in the closing scene. Theories and debates about this story began forming quick but most seem to focus on one particular moment at the end of Episode, 2 “Day of the Moon”. A little girl walks out from behind a dumpster in a New York City alley 6 months after the main story concludes and begins to regenerate.
One of the first obvious questions on peoples’ minds is, “Who can this girl be?” There have been many theories and accusations made that very well could be true, however most must be dismissed on the fact that there is not a shred of evidence to support them. This is a sci-fi, time traveling show so anything is always possible but people should be focused on evidence rather than just throwing out hopeful names. Some…

Another great show ended its run recently, the CW’s Smallville. After 10 seasons and 216 episodes, Clark finally embraced his Kryptonian destiny and became Superman.

I don’t think that many super hero shows could pull off the success that Smallville achieved and the fact that it went on for 10 seasons is a testament to the crew that worked on the show. The show may have changed a few things from the comics and had their own characters but overall they stayed true to the Superman franchise which was nice. The show originally started as a ‘villain of the week’ show where Clark had a different villain to beat by the end of every episode. As interesting as this was this format could only carry the show for so long. In season 5 it became clear that the show was trying to change from ‘villain of …

The Adventures of Tintin - Trailer

Image
Based off the original comic strip 'The Adventures of Tintin' (1929-1976), Tintin is a young, top-rated Belgian reporter who one way or another gets tied up in dangerous, action-filled cases in which he takes heroic action to save the day. Directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson and with a screenplay writing credit going to Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Sherlock) this movie has some great potential.

Though most Americans are not familiar with Tintin and his dog Snowy, I used to love reading the Tintin comics when I was little. I was introduced to it by my mom and am quite interested to see how this turns out.

Awkward Meeting (Superman and Doctor Who)

Given Clark Kent's fondness towards telephone booths, what would happen if he was walking around England and he needed to change into his Superman suit?

Kudos for using David Tennant's Doctor for this comic. "What?....What?!"
