It is very hard for me to even look at Sunday’s lineup and not see CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK CM PUNK.

C2E2 Saturday Preview

Click here for Friday’s preview.

keysmash c2e2 saturday preview high res square logoNothing hurts more than going through a convention schedule and realizing that in order to see your favorites, you’re going to have to camp in a ballroom all day and miss some of the smaller, yet still awesome panels. Saturday at C2E2 is going to be one of those days. I either need a time-turner or clones.

All the dangerous -ings. (iZombie 1.05, “Flight of the Living Dead”)

keysmash izombie recap season 1 episode 5 flight of the living dead recapIt has been almost a week now and I still cannot stop screaming about Bradley James. Look, I’ve loved this show since the beginning. I’ve been excited about this show since I first heard about it at SDCC. But that did not stop me from making this episode ALL ABOUT BRADDERS. I promise I will try to tone it down for the rest of his episodes, but I make no guarantees. Especially if he’s going to be using his voice or his hands, or wearing vee necks, or having shoulders. Also his face. If I see his face. The struggle is real.
