Stop Everything: Ra’s al Ghul is Coming to ‘Arrow’

Arrow is one of our favorite shows, and the second season solidified it as a kick ass comic book show with intelligence and heart.

10 Super Offsite Things to Do at SDCC 2014

For the second year in a row, we’ll be making the journey down to San Diego for the annual San Diego Comic Con… but we’re not going to the show. The actual Con is notoriously hard to get into (not to mention trying to get a hotel room) and the idea of waiting outside of...

Wil Wheaton Says What We Were All Kinda Thinking About ‘Gotham’

Wil Wheaton’s new show on SyFy premiered last week (congrats, by the way) and he, like many of us, has some reservations about the upcoming Gotham, which will chronicle Jim Gordon and not Batman. So he made his own trailer to describe what the show might cover sans Batman. BAT ASS.

We Still Miss ‘The Clone Wars,’ but ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Looks Awesome in First Trailer

I hope you’re all recovering from a weekend spent at your local comic book shop for Free Comic Book Day and binge watching the entire Star Wars Saga (OK, just IV through VI is perfectly acceptable, too) in celebration of May the 4th!

Arthur Darvill Tells ‘Doctor Who’ Fans to “Let It Go” In Hilarious Parody Song

Believe me when I say that I will probably have “Let It Go” from Frozen stuck in my head for the rest of my life. I’m sure I’m not alone. It’s on the radio now for science sake! The hype might be dying down a bit now, but it seems like every week there’s a...

Celebrating “Impossible Astronaut Day” with 10 of the Creepiest ‘Doctor Who’ Creatures

One of the benefits of having an active imagination is that you’re never bored. Even if you’re sitting in a room by yourself in total silence, you’re having a good time just thinking about things.

Have Questions About ‘Star Wars Rebels’? They May Be Answered at WonderCon

We just finished (after rewatching all the episodes) Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and like many of you, we’re definitely sad to see it go. It was an amazing animated series that did wonders for expanding the Star Wars Universe and introduced us to the honorable Captain Rex and the awesome Ahsoka Tano, not to...

17 Characters Who Never Have to Worry About Getting Pinched on St. Patrick’s Day

As an Irish-American, St. Patrick’s Day is Emily’s favorite holiday. It’s a time for green beer, green clothes, as well as a few Irish drinking songs (following the green beer). And while Irish characters in our favorite fandoms are sometimes hard to find or pick out, characters with a love of the Emerald Isle favored...

Be My Valentine… Or Not: 14 Fandom Ships That Didn’t Work Out

Ah, the “ship”: An integral part of fangirl and fanboy-ing your favorite fandoms.

Happy Holidays everyone! Welcome to the first installment of the 2013 Wrong Button Gift Guide! We know that gift giving can be difficult, especially if you’re not familiar with a particular fandom or you’re like Emily’s mom and you can’t tell the difference between a TARDIS and a TaunTaun (sorry mom!).
