Kasem Retires — For Real This Time

This Saturday’s American Top 20 countdown will be Casey Kasem’s last, USA Today reports. After 34 years off American Top 40 and five more of variants, he’s heading off the “free up time [he] needs for other projects.” It’s a sad day. But I’m sure more than one GWCer hopes that he’ll choose to(/have the […]

Despair not: Hulu now offers season four as well — twenty-two episodes of your […]

Vampires: Beyond I Vant Tu Suck Your Blaud

I think Vampires and Vampire stories suffer from a bit of an image problem. Yeah I know, that sounds funny, but it’s true. I often hear people say Vampires are disgusting or that the stories are limited in their scope because all vamp tales are the same. In my most humble of opinions these are […]

SciFi Changes Reputation Through Homonym Use

According to TVWeek.com and Twitter, the SciFi network is finally ridding itself of its geeky image by changing its name to the slick new “SyFy,” which will attract the desirable demographics of hot women and people who hate science fiction. After years of suffering the stigma of “geeks and dysfunctional, antisocial boys in their basements […]

Legend Of The Seeker

Generally we don’t cover a ton of fantasy on the cast but I’m a huge fan of anything with magic, swords or dragons in it. Legend of the Seeker has all three. As well as hot, Florentine fighting guardians, wise-cracking wizards and a sword that’s thousands of years old. My favorite character is the afore […]

Life Lessons from Constable Odo

Recently I’ve been watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine again from the beginning. Every time I do this, I’m struck by the moral evolution of the character Odo over the course of the series. In the fourth episode of Season One, “A Man Alone,” Odo becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a Bajoran […]
