Dispute, Sick Vampires & Civil War in all new True Blood season 7 teaser!

Bon Temps has had it’s fair share of trouble with it’s supernatural inhabitants, human retaliation and odd supernatural beings here there and everywhere. But it seems this year is going to be worse than ever. Appropriate for the final season of True Blood, the teaser suggests and almost apocalyptic theme which i have no doubt will continue until the final episode of the season. With ‘sick’ vampires, a civil war and an almost non-existent government, Season 7 is going to be bigger, badder and better than its predeceasing seasons (providing Eric is still alive – if not I’m out!).

See how it all ends for Sookie Stackhouse and the rest of Bon Temps, in the final season of True Blood- Premiering, Sunday 22nd June (In the US).

Roswell Cast to be Reunited for ATX Festival

Roswell Cast to be Reunited for ATX Festival

Roswell! If you can’t remember Roswell you seriously missed out!

Roswell focused on what happens when extra-terrestrials actually come to town. With a great cast including Katherine Heigl (putting herself on the map), and an almost Twilight romance it really was a great show. Although short lived (only lasting three seasons) it found itself a great cult following and viewers tuning in every week- even some of us that Geeky getting excited fifteen years later.

With that in mind,the show’s fifteenth anniversary is just around the corner and an ‘alien force’ is reuniting the cast (all except Heigl herself) for the ATX Festival. Pretty cool or what?!

Netflix announces air date for Hemlock Grove Season 2

After much anticipation Netflix have finally given us a date to put on our calendars and in our diaries. Hemlock Grove season 2 will be with us on July 11th, giving us all something to get us through the exam season, or just enough time to watch the first season (again). If you’ve never watched it, I would strongly advise you to do so. It’s a totally messed up supernatural show, almost a combination of Hex and American Horror Story. It’s so addictive and painfully baffling (in an awesome way)- Just watch it guys honestly!

Netflix have provided this tiny teaser clip, basically publicising the beautiful Famke Janssen and July 11th.

‘Batman: Mad Love and Other Stories’ Review

'Batman: Mad Love and Other Stories' Review

“Mad Love is the best Batman story of the decade” – Frank Miller

Keeping with the theme of Batman this week with his 75th anniversary here, this week’s review is the award winning graphic novel that first introduced us to the character that is Harley Quinn. Now a symbol for a female psychopath, or dark sexual icon it should be know that this was not always the same woman: originally she was Dr Harleen Quinzel. An ambitious graduate, with an interest in the human psyche, especially that of Gotham City’s Joker. But even she couldn’t help but fall for his tricks.

It should be noted that there are a few more comic’s in the book, in order to fill it out such as short stories on Poision Ivy, Talia Al Ghul, Catwoman, Roxy and Batgirl. This book is graphic novel is said to be of the dames and demons of Gotham City. However the focus of both the graphic novel and the review are on Mad Love.

In the form of a graphic novel this medium allows us to view the story of Harley Quinn’s lure to the other side of the law,; by use of detailed images, speech and internal monologues. This helps the reader when trying to justify why such a ‘go-getter’ girl like Harleen would risk everything for The Joker. Because for her, it’s simple. It’s love. Mad love.

The origin story begins with a flash back from modern times to Harleen Quinzel’s first day at Arkham Asylum. This is how the origin story is fed to the reader from henceforth, small snippets and flashbacks of her time at Arkham City’s infamous mental asylum (along with a few statements and speech from the current timeline, referring to those days).

The story itself is simple yet so encapsulating that it is a perfect first read for many of you out there who haven’t tried a graphic novel, as of yet. As the story is basically a short tragedy in the form of a comic book, it is very accessible whilst also holds the story on a deeper level with relatable themes of love, anger, confusion and regret. Not only is this a face value comic book, but it is also the first time Harley Quinn is viewed as something other than the crazy lover of The Joker, but as one of his many tragic victims.

Although as a graphic novel, this may put many people off my advice would be to simply give it a try. I believe that the story is worth it if you have an interest in Batman, DC comics, the character of Harley Quinn or even psychology in general. Thus the reason that I have rated this graphic novel a strong 8/10. A simple medium, but highly effective.

First Look at DEATHSTOKE’S attack on Team Arrow’s HQ

First Look at DEATHSTOKE'S attack on Team Arrow's HQ

This collage of images shows us what to expect from the much anticipated next episode of Arrow (April 16th). ¬†Slade Wilson’s (Deathstroke’s) ambush on Team Arrow in their own head quarters. From the images The CW have released there is defiantly going to be one hell of a battle (It’s a good thing Oliver Queen is rich! He’s going to have to replace quite a lot of damaged goods).

News is working its way through the internet and social media claiming that one of the female members of the team will be taken to hospital due to the attack. But who will it be? Felicity or Sarah? My ideas are as followed:

A) This is an attempt to (for lack of a better expression) kill off ‘The Black Canary’ to allow Laurel to step forward and take her sisters place as The Black Canary herself!

B) For Felicity to be hospitalised in order to assume the role as ‘The Oracle’. This could potentially lead to Felicity Smoak being wheelchair bound- an element not often explored in superhero adaptations. This could also open up the possibility of being visited by her charming admirer Barry Allen (a.k.a The Flash).

But these are just a couple of my own theories on the repercussions of the big showdown. I suppose we will have to wait and see what the actual outcomes are. Feel free to comment below with any of your own theories or ideas of the aftermath of Slade’s attack!
