It’s a good time to get caught up, especially with the newest trailer for the upcoming season of Orphan Black!
I’ve been trying as of late to write the next chapter of my book but all I seem to do is kill trees with scribbles and rage. But hey, that’s how one learns to write, isn’t it? So, in light of that, I’ll do another article with Nerds Doing Stuff about another fandom that’s so dear to my heart it brought me to tears when Robby and Stacey quoted it in their wedding vows. I am, of course, talking about Joss Whedon’s Firefly!

Ryan Reynolds finally has a superhero film under his belt that isn’t awful. While we push off our shudders thinking about the previous incarnation of the titular Deadpool, we can revel in the fact that this past Valentine’s Day weekend, the mouthy, crass, and all around fantastic Deadpool took the top spot at the box office.
As the sixth season of Game of Thrones looms just over the horizon, HBO has taken to social media to begin releasing more tidbits from the upcoming season. On twitter, fans watched eagerly as a series of photographs that offer glimpses into the actions (or at least appearances) of our widespread cast began to surface. Posted one by one on twitter, fans finally got a brief update on what Starks, Lannisters, Tyrells, Boltons, Greyjoys, and Targaryens might be in for once the newest season gets started.
While there are still a handful of loose ends from the books that book readers are waiting to see on the small screen, most plotlines had completed by the end of season 5. With no hope of a release date in sight for The Winds of Winter, and certainly not one before season 6 kicks off, book readers can no longer enjoy the foresight once cherished by many. Now, we’re all in the dark together.
Unless, of course, you’re one of the people hungrily seeking set spoilers and filming clues, as precariously truth-filled as these may be. They certainly do make for fun speculation. Nonetheless, these lovely stills are the biggest piece of information regarding the upcoming season we’ve yet seen. The three house teasers released last month offered only tiny details, and the recent interview with the actor who plays Bran could only hint at what is yet in store.
On the 14th, a new teaser trailer for Game of Thrones was released, portraying a variety of faces set into the House of Black and White, whispering and sparking a handful of new theories.
While most of what follows the read more is wild speculation, there will be several spoiler-fueled comments, so proceed with caution.
