Last night, Syfy premiered the new series Lost Girl, which stars Anna Silk (pictured) as a Succubus — a female who feeds off the sexual energy of others — named Bo. Was the acting stellar? No. Was there enough ‘S’ in that TV-MA LSV rating? No. But a lot of exposition is required in a pilot like this, and now that we’ve got the setup, I assume there’ll be a little less conversation and a little more action in future episodes when Bo becomes a private investigator specializing in the paranormal. (Hello, Angel!) By the end of the hour, I was setting my DVR to record new episodes (not at 10 p.m. ET, but the midnight repeats). Here’s why: READ FULL STORY

I know we’re a couple days late for gift-giving, but file this under ‘things I can’t live without and ZOMG how did this not exist when I was camping out for the New Hope rerelease in 1997?’: Princess Leia headphone covers.
That’s right – it appears that the obvious has only just now come to Etsy, that treasure trove of handicrafts. Tech blog Geekology discovered this piece of pop culture gold, and notes that you could alternatively (as generations have done before) “glue a pair of cinnamon rolls to your headphones,” but, um, that sounds sticky.
The force is definitely with creator Jacqui Longlegs who posted her various Leia looks on her blog.
Better stock up now — Comic-Con is only six months away, people.
George Takei has accomplished what was once thought seemingly impossible and figured a way to settle one of the oldest nerd scores: The epic Star Trek vs. Star Wars debate. Prompted by the ongoing showdown between William Shatner (“First of all, Star Wars was derivative of Star Trek… derivative!”: Point Shatner) and Carrie Fisher (“Klingon? It just sounds like a laundry detergent”: Point Fisher), the great Mr. Sulu opted to take charge and become a Broker of Peace to put an end to the galaxy-and-decade-spanning feud once and for all.
But how does one do that for a embittered battle in which both sides have such dedicated, unflappable supporters? It’s quite simple, really: Call out Twilight and urge both Star Trek and Star Wars fans to come together to mutually hate on it. (All the points: Takei.) READ FULL STORY
From South Park parody to musical adaptation to Funny or Die sketch to sock monkey to foot tattoo, it has long been clear that the NSFW Human Centipede torture porn franchise really is the gift that keeps on giving. But we never expected Tom Six’s deranged horror movies to gift us the quite delightful, kiddie-friendly t-shirt design you can see on the left.
The illustration comes from the Threadless website, where it is accompanied by a children’s poem about a “centipede human” who was always in a hurry — “He was late for his work, and late for his lunch/He was late for supper, and late for Sunday brunch” — until one day he decided to watch the Human Centipede and (spoiler alert!) died from a heart attack.
Which is sad — but, in the world of the Human Centipede, probably qualifies as a happy ending.
Carrie Fisher fires back at William Shatner, says 'Star Trek' is 'not in the same league' as 'Star Wars' -- VIDEO
Carrie Fisher fired back at William Shatner for comments he made in September that Star Trek is better than Star Wars. In an interview posted on her YouTube, Fisher said, “They’re not in the same league. I mean, they have the word ‘Star’ in the title.” She knocked Star Trek‘s budget: “Maybe [it's] just their ‘effects,’ they’re not called ‘special effects’ in the case of [Star Trek].”
In response to Shatner’s claims Fisher never fit into Princess Leia’s famous metal bikini, she cracked, “By the way, Bill has borrowed it,” and she challenged him to a costume-off. Oh snap, it’s about to get real in here. Watch Fisher’s full comments, including digs at Shatner’s nether regions and Leonard Nimoy’s Spock ears, after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Look at that face. Could you cancel that face? Well, if you’re Fox… maybe. Allen Gregory is still standing for the moment, thanks to a plum time-slot between The Simpsons and Family Guy, but can the freshman show hang on after so-so ratings? As one of several shows to premiere this past week, Gregory‘s fate hasn’t been decided yet. Add its name to the purgatorial list that includes high-profile newcomers Pan Am, Terra Nova, Once Upon a Time, and Last Man Standing. Keep reading to see which shows are in danger as we slide into November, and cast your vote for which should be canceled next.
NBC’s pilot for Grimm aired last night, and while it wasn’t exactly what its unfortunate title might suggest, there’s still some work to be done. The show is like CSI with a case of the heebie-jeebies… SVU if Stabler could see spooks! Homicide detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) learned he was descended from the brothers Grimm, could see demons, and was fated to spend the rest of his days hunting the pests. So how did this all play out in episode one? READ FULL STORY
