True Blood

I won't spoil the season premiere for True Blood if you haven't seen it yet.

But I have to say this.

Thank the entertainment gods for whoever decided to cast that actor for Eric Northman and that wonderful actress for Pam.


That is all.

P.S. I'm new to posting here at the Nerd Girl Army. Thanks for having me, Rachel. I'm thrilled to be here.

Game Of Thrones coming to HBO this April

A Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire)If you're a fantasy fan like me you'll be happy to know that the TV series based on the George R.R. Martin high fantasy fiction series A Song of Fire and Ice is starting soon on HBO in the US.

The series will debut on April 17, 2011 in the US and in the UK, the series will debut on Sky Atlantic on April 18, 2011.

Check out the drama and quality in the extended trailer

George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones 4-Book Boxed Set: A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, and A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire)Great news is that the ruggedly handsome Sean Bean best known for his role as Boromir in Lord of the Rings is returning to the stable of sword and sorcery amongst other British character actors taking a turn for epic television.

The author himself has also stated that the script is very faithful to the novels which is great endorsement for any reader.

Makeover for Wonder Woman

Who doesn't like Wonder Woman...but when you think of Wonder Woman, what image does you mind conjure?

Yup I bet it's the good old classic star spangled pants with the red corset...and those iconic red boots...just do a google image search and that is what you will get.

Who could forget Lynda Carter making nerd girls around the world beg their parents for gold cardboard to make some bullet-reflecting gauntlets? Or blue undies to stitch felt stars on? Practising boomarang throws with that Princess tiara? Or twirl around in the yard to the point of falling over or being sick?

Besides all the awesome stuff such as a role-model teaching young girls to stick up for themselves and not needing a guy to save them, or that a strong, powerful woman could be good, (as compared with other super hero television - women were either villains or oooh I sprained my ankle)...intelligent and good looking at the same time.

Wonder Woman has had many outfit updates...the pants went from shorts to grannie pants to high cut bikini. The iconic red corset with the golden eagle has had many modifications.
Even Wonder Woman, or Diana Prince has had her hair keep you with the trends...from her original tight curls to the bullet-reflecting-hair-spray-helmet to that 80's perm to 90's layers...if there was ever great documentation for hair style fashion through the decades it is Wonder Woman comics.

But DC decided for Wonder Woman's 69th birthday she needed a make over....and a tv series...

Oh yessssss....yes they did....
