NERDY NEWS: Cool things that happened July 24 – 30

Slow week for horror/sci-fi news, no? Must be a natural slowdown after SDCC, but it still feels like there wasn’t too much to get excited about.

More on American Horror Story

Get it? It’s a hive mind, with a literal beehive. We’ve had a lot of promos and teasers drop early for this season with a lot of information (cast photos! it’s about the election!) out there already. It’s a big difference from last season (Roanoke) where we didn’t even get a title until the episode aired, and basically no one knew what it would be about. Famously I adored Roanoke (minus the last episode or two), so I’m not sure if this different approach will bode well or not for me. Guess I’ll find out in September!

NERDY NEWS: Cool things that happened July 17 – 23

There’s a lot happening this week, mostly thanks to Comic Con going down this weekend! I’m not there of course, living in Canada and all, but watching the trailers drop online approximately 30 seconds after they play Hall H isn’t so bad.

Preacher Season 2 Episode 3 Recap: Damsels

Last week’s two episodes were pretty full throttle, so this week’s slow down feels more like we came to a screeching halt.

The trio arrives in New Orleans, reluctantly on Tulip’s part. They immediately head out in search of God at any and every jazz bar the city has – there are 187, according to Jesse, and he plans to visit them all. They enter the first bar announced they’re looking for God and are lead into a back room with a woman and a man dressed as a dog. Fun starts at $12,000. Not exactly what we’re looking for (although Cassidy was willing to give it a shot).
