Star Trek: TNG Swimwear Has Arrived!

Set your eyeballs to stun! ThinkGeek has released a line of gorgeous Star Trek: The Next Generation swim/beach wear.

From ThinkGeek:
Whether your destination is the ocean world of Pacifica, the pristine beaches of Risa, or your local Y, take the plunge with these Star Trek:TNG One-Piece Swimsuits modeled after the ST:TNG uniform. Choose Blue, Gold, or Red, whichever suits you. (There will be a test later.) The suit comes in sizes small through 2X and has a back hook closure with two adjustment options for a custom torso fit. It also features soft bust cups for shape which are removable if you prefer the look without them. 

But that's not all!

They also have a Deanna Troi swim shirt, modeled after her lavender jumpsuit in seasons 2 and 3, as well as a cover-up romper. All items have an embroidered Starfleet combadge.

What do you think they should create next? Stick with ST:TNG or move to DS9?

Random Thoughts: Am I the Only One Who Noticed Snape taught Harry his Signature Move?

So, I'm going through one of my annual Harry Potter rereads, and after reading the Chamber of Secrets for the gazillionth time, it hit me. Snape taught Harry "Expelliarmus." The spell that went on to become Harry's "signature" move was introduced to him by a man he loathed.

When I say I've read the books a gazillion times, I'm only sort of exaggerating. Okay, I'm exaggerating a lot, but I really do reread the series at least once a year, usually two or three times, depending on how busy that year is. This is the first time I've made this connection. Maybe I'm a little slow, but whenever I see a post or listicle with Potter facts, I'm all over them, and I can't recall ever coming across anyone saying anything about the SnapeExpelliarmus connection.

Star Trek: The Wrath of Trailers

In the past few days, we've gotten not one but two trailers for upcoming Trek projects.  It's all part of building off of the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

First off, we got the tiniest teaser trailer for the TV show, which will be arriving early 2017.  I am digging the new logo, which is a modernization of the original symbol.  I don't want to influence anyone, but is the start of this remind anyone else of early seasons Stargate travel?  Still, super excited for this new show.  Check out the all too quick teaser after the break.

NYCC '16 New Guests - Cast of Gotham

It was announced today that cast members from FOX's Gotham will be stirring up some fun at this year's New York Comic Con. Among them will be Erin Richards, the delightfully disturbed and obsessive Barbara Kean, young Bruce Wayne himself, David Mazouz, and the fiendishly funny fan favorite, Oswald Cobblepot aka Penguin, or as he's known to the outside world, Robin Lord Taylor. 

As a fan of the show, I'm hoping more cast members will be added, but that's only because I would love to see them interact outside of the show. This is a great trio, and I'm sure they will sprinkle NYCC '16 with Gotham's dark, gritty, and twisted magic.

NYCC '16 Guest Announcements

New York Comic Con has released its first batch of guests. It's not a big batch, but it's an important one.

Amanda Connor - Harley Quinn, Power Girl, Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre
Jimmy Palmiotti - Harley Quinn, Wool, Retrovirus, Power Girl, Jonah Hex, Deadpool
Jill Thompson - Scary Godmother, Wonder Woman, The Sandman, Death: At Death's Door

And in what is being called his final New York Comic Con Appearance:

The one and only Stan Lee.

I'm a little sad this will be Stan's last NYCC appearance, but it's easy to understand. He's in his 90's, and the traveling takes its toll. Besides, he still has Comikaze Expo. Hopefully, he'll still put in an occasional appearance there.

[IGH] at the Movies: Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War opened on May 6th. After anxiously waiting and trying to free up my schedule, I was finally able to see it this past weekend. I can’t tell you what a relief that was. I’ve been avoiding all mentions of Civil War on my social media. It hasn’t been an easy task. I’m really proud of my friends for not spoiling the movie, because it was worth the wait.

There are a lot of reviews out there that can better dissect what works and doesn’t work, so I’m not going to dwell on that. Instead, I want to talk about some of the things that made an impression on me. 

Obviously, this post will contain spoilers

Bye-Bye Agent Carter

In a move that surprises no one, but is still quite upsetting, ABC has officially given Agent Carter the axe. 

I’m having a hard time writing about this, because I don’t understand why ABC doesn’t realize how important Peggy Carter is. She’s a smart, wickedly funny, spirited woman who kicks ass, and who has to contend with being female in the 40s-50’s. The show had a great support cast, with atypical characters such as Jarvis and Sousa, and even better, the show wasn’t dark and gritty. That’s not to say dark and gritty events didn’t transpire, but this was show that also operated in the light with bright colors.
