Kirk and Spock are the 23rd-century Jeeves & Wooster: a very convincing video essay, featuring lots of well-timed eyebrows.
Huffington Post goes around analyzing the slash potential in photos of politicians. Ranging from the sweet to the sultry.
If You Were Gay, fake news edition. The expressions are perfectly chosen, and hilarious.
Speaking of fake news, if ever anyone was a little short for a Stormtrooper….
Speaking of Star Wars, what if it were an Icelandic saga? In, just to make things as epic as possible, Old Norse (with English translations).
The Hellsing Essays, part 1: a semi-serious but unabashedly invested aria to the glorious over-the-topness that is Hellsing. Spoileriffic to the extreme, but full of so much love that I almost want to recommend it to non-fans anyway, as a way of luring you all into the series.
The follow-up essay is on character, slightly more structured and equally fascinating. Here there are more things I actually disagree with, but it’s generated enthusiastic debate in the comments, all of which is more than worth a read.
A carefully reasoned theory on how Rose Tyler makes a whole lot more sense as a lesbian in denial.
Another reasoned theory, this one by P. G. Wodehouse, on how Sherlock Holmes was rich and evil.
And, combining the two: evidently the new Sherlock series exists in the same universe as Doctor Who. One of Sarah Jane’s aunt’s books is on Holmes’ bookcase :D
The story of one of the ghostwriters behind the Hardy Boys: how much he secretly hated the books, and how bits of his innovation managed to slip through the torrent of drek anyway.
