So, season 8 is half way over and the twists just keep coming.
Episode 5, “This Little Piggy”, tied up a few loose ends, namely the Brain Surgeon plot line. Yates kidnaps the Doc right from her own home and, since we have seen what he does to his victims, we know that if Dex and Deb don’t find her fast, Vogel is going to have 10 broken toes and be dead sooner than later.
So Benedict Cumberbatch. Where do I begin? It’s different, with Benny. He’s been creeping slowly into my veins since I first saw him bumbling around with Martin Freeman on Sherlock. Suddenly, I’m searching him on YouTube, watching interviews and red carpet appearances and correcting my friends and family when they pronounce his name wrong. Then, I’ve seen every film, commercial, sitcom, television series he’s been in. That quirky smile, the ginger hair, the voice that sounds like a jaguar purring inside of a cello, the fact that he doesn’t take himself too seriously, that he wants kids and every leading lady he works with ends up gushing about Benedict and what a great dad he will be and Ben is just so sweet. The fan girls (and boys), we swoon over him in an overly dramatic, teen angsty sort of way, regardless if we hold PhD’s in Comparative Literature or not. The thing is, Benedict is a legitimately talented actor not to mention his bloody gorgeousness sneaks up on you. He’s my tall, lanky alien boy that I just want to keep in a gilded cage so he can read Keats to me as we drink tea in the late afternoon (well that was specific).
DOCTOR WHO.Yes, I have been putting off mentioning the amaze balls Doctor Who panel that happened at SDCC2013 this Sunday because I travel through time in a linnear, nonsubjective way and therefore couldn’t speak on it before now. Spoilers! The panel in Hall H today featured show producer Marcus Wilson, show writer Mark Gatiss, “new” First Doctor David Bradley, show runner Steven Moffat, and stars Jenna Coleman and Matt Smith.
The Collective gals can’t wait to watch the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead kill a few walkers in Season 4, which starts this October. This afternoon at San Diego Comic Con, Series stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, David Morrissey, Scott Wilson, and Chad Coleman join executive producer and showrunner Scott Gimple and executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert and special effects makeup supervisor and executive producer Greg Nicotero in a panel moderated by my favorite walker aficionado, Chris Hardwick (The Nerdist, Talking Dead) in Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center. Fans attending the panel can expect an exclusive preview of Season 4, with a look at the new characters and of course, biters.
