Orphan Black is Back! Season 3

Orphan Black is Back!

Orphan Black is back! This Saturday was the season 3 premiere and of course NerdFamilyDad and I tuned in.

On the whole we were pretty happy. There is a certain slowness that happens with all the season premieres but I think it is a necessity. They took time in this episode to catch people up a bit. For some reason they don’t think that it is fresh in your mind, And that you aren’t waiting with baited breath for them answer every question they left you with in Season 2;).

So we didn’t really get a whole lot of new information, more of a review of our cast of characters with just a couple of extra facts/people introduced. Now Sarah got new information but not so much for us;).

It looks like it is going to be an action packed season that really is going to move the whole story line along! And yes, I am being vague. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone.

If you haven’t seen the first episode go do it! If you have, what did you think? I will chat specifics in the comments so don’t check them out if you haven’t watched the episode!

Benedict Cumberbatch, Good Enough to Eat?

UKTV polled their viewers for the dishiest drama actor. To no surprise, Benedict Cumberbatch won. And what that meant was that his likeness was carved into 40 kg’s of milk chocolate. If you are in Britain, it will be on display at Westfield Stratford City for Good Friday.

This was to celebrate the Drama channel on UKTVPlay.

Check out the making of video too!

1 Month Until Daredevil and a New Trailer

It is only 1 month until the Daredevil series premieres on Netflix! They released a new Daredevil trailer on the Netflix Youtube channel. It seems to expand out Daredevil’s origin story with mentions of training and not just seeing him be blind as a child. What I am not clear on is if Kingpin is a party to Matt Murdock’s decision to become Daredevil. Or is this going to be very flashback based like Arrow (I hope not)?

We also got a real exposure to Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin! It is kind of weird, just because I am used to him with hair. I am sure he will do a good job.

Can’t wait for the launch on April 10, 2015 on Netflix!!!!

Choosing a Cocktail Dress

Tomorrow I am heading off for the Lifestyle Bloggers National Conference in LA. The conference is kicking off with a cocktail party. And that means cocktail dresses.

I, like many women, don’t feel super confident in cocktails but I have a couple of great choices from Kiyonna! But I can’t make a decision. So that is where I turn to you all for some help!

Which dress should I wear?

This red fitted, lace covered dress from Kiyonna can’t be ignored. It is kind of tight and that color is to die for. The tightness can make me feel a touch self conscious but is definitely shows off some assets.

WP black cocktail dress
This black cocktail dress (also from Kiyonna) is a classic. It is black and gathers to one side. It is very flattering but it is another black dress. (Full disclosure: I am not wearing any make up in this picture and I hadn’t even brushed my hair after my shower;)

Show which dress should I wear? This is the first time I am meeting many of these people so I want to make a nice impression.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Sophie Hunter, and a Valentine’s Day Wedding

Apparently when Benedict Cumberbatch said that he would be marrying pregnant Sophie Hunter quickly he meant it. Cumberbatch and Hunter are going to be getting married on Valentine’s Day on the Isle of Wight. There doesn’t seem to be much more known than that.

How will the fandom react? I personally wish them happiness!

Spiderman is Taking His Place in the Marvel Universe

When Marvel started making movies after the Disney buyout we all began wondering if the Marvel movie universe would ever be united. The first step in unification has been announced!

Sony and Marvel have announced that Spiderman will be appearing in a Marvel movie before the next installment of the Sony Spiderman series. Then Kevin Feige will co-produce the new Spiderman movie and will help craft the new creative direction for Spiderman. But the Spiderman movies will remain in financial and final creative control of Sony.

This is really interesting. And I wonder what this means for the future unification of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (SMU)? Is Sony going to be the only studio to play ball? I think that would be a mistake for the other studios but we shall see!

David Tennant Makes Marvel Even Better

Marvel made a really cool announcement… One that will make Marvel Whovians extra happy..
Enter…

That’s right, David Tennant! David Tennant will be joining the Jessica Jones project that will be on Netflix after Daredevil! He will be playing Kilgrave.

I am super stoked. And we know that is will be coming later in 2015 or in 2016, so not as long as many of the other promised Marvel offerings.

Are you excited about the new casting announcement? Who would you like to see them casting next?

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Trailer

The 2nd Age of Ultron trailer has hit the interwebs! I am really interested to see how The Vision and the Scarlet Witch’s story lines will compare to the comic books.

I am also curious who the scruffy man is. He reminds me of Wolverine (not Hugh Jackman but the character;) but we know that can’t be. And he doesn’t look like Paul Bettany to me so he can’t be The Vision. Hmm… I haven’t researched at all yet so I may report back;).

So what do you think? Are you excited or already disappointed because of the changes to the stories we already know? I am excited and looking for to this premiere and the Daredevil show that will premiere in April. Big spring for Marvel!

I do believe that Marvel will soon run the world;). So can we get Iron Man to pop over to France to deal with things;)?

Benedict Cumberbatch is Pregnant

Ok, really Sophie Hunter is. But either way it means that Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch are expecting the first child. It has been officially announce by a representative of Cumberbatch so this isn’t speculation. They also are now talking about getting married sooner, as in the next few months.

So how is fandom going to respond. Freak out because this means he will be even more connected to Sophie Hunter? Or more in love with him because he will be a daddy? For this fan I am happy for them and wish them all the happiness in the world!
