Modern popular culture topics in the geek sphere.
Lesbian Couples In Comics
Though it's often considered to be a male-dominated scene filled with characters that are super manly men, the comic book scene is surprisingly friendly towards women and LGBTQIA people. In fact, the comic book industry has been featuring gay characters for decades - long before gay characters were introduced to mainstream TV shows.Ossiana Tepfenhart
Billie Lourd, Daughter Of Carrie Fisher, Sole Beneficiary Of Estate
It will no doubt come as a relief to Billie Lourd that the estate of her mother, Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher, has been finalized.
Pink "#FailingBeautifully" At Parenthood
Known for hits like "So What" and "Raise Your Glass," songs which have traditionally encouraged and even celebrated the fierceness of women everywhere, if not everyone's inner party animal, Pink may have once been the last person on Earth that people would have expected to become a role model for working moms. Sure, the rock star has enough money now that she could probably hire several different nannies to look after her two young children, Willow, who's 6, and Jameson, who is around 6 months old now, but it would seem she's still a very present parent in their lives.
Can Netflix's 'Castlevania' Break Dracula's Curse?
Netflix is taking a big gamble on their next project. Bram Stoker's Dracula and pretty much any video game adaptation have one thing in common, when it comes to adapting them for the screen, large or small. They're both subject to audiences with a love for the original content and that means any new adaptation has to get by steadfast fans if it's going to be a success.E.J. V'Kanty
Twin Peaks 2017: The Birth of an American Nightmare
"It was a fantastic decade in a lot of ways ... there was something in the air that is not there any more at all...It was a really hopeful time... You got the feeling you could do anything. The future was bright. Little did we know we were for a disastrous future."James Giles

Could Rob Kardashian's and Blac Chyna's Relationship Get Any Worse?
I have issues with the Kardashian clan on a good day, but even I was incredulous when I realized how bad things were getting, particularly with Rob and his ex Blac Chyna.
Best 90s Cartoon Network Shows
"Only 90s kids will remember" is a trendy tagline that epitomizes the nostalgia shared amongst those born between 1990 and 1999. This period was right before the age of smartphones took away from the true creativity of many TV animators.Bethany Tiamat
Wizard World Cancels Expos in Albuquerque & Orlando
Over the past few decades, comic book conventions (or Comic-Cons) have become an important part of the pop culture conversation.
'The House' Is the Worst Comedy of 2017 So Far
Oh, how I hate The House! This one note joke of a comedy about morons trying to send their daughter to an upscale college is an embarrassing and sad mess. Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler star in The House as a married couple about to empty their nest when they send their daughter off to Bucknell University. However, when they lose out on their daughter’s scholarship due to a scheme by a corrupt city council member (Nick Kroll) they are forced into criminal behavior to make their daughter’s college dream come true.Sean Patrick
W.T.F. Japan? The Most Bizarre Anime Ever
Because there are so many genres in anime, every story is different. Many are original, some are confusing, but mainly they’re always entertaining. Then you get the shows that make you feel like you’re tripping your balls off or just very, very high… seriously. You can’t tell what the hell’s going on, the colors, the lights, the weird characters, the bizarre plot… These are the shows that make you think, “What the f*%# is this shit?”. You don't know whether to run like hell or keep watching to see if it eventually makes sense.Kelly Hawks
