<![CDATA[First Impressive Trailer for the X-Men Marvel Series LEGION]]>

During the Marvel: Cup O'Joe panel at Comic-Con, the studio premiered the first trailer for their FX X-Men-inspired series Legion. The show actually looks like it could be pretty awesome! I really enjoyed what I saw in this trailer.

The series focuses on a character named David Haller, who has struggled with mental illness since he was a teenager. "Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real."

Haller is also known as Legion, and he is the son of Gabrielle Haller and Charles Xavier in the comics. He's a pretty powerful mutant who is one of the founders of X-Men. One of the things I like about the character most is that his mutant powers are controlled separately by his different personalities, which makes him incredibly unique.

Legion comes from Fargo creator Noah Hawley and stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Aubrey Plaza, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Bill Irwin. The series will eventually premiere on FX, and I'll definitely be checking it out.

If you’ve been seeing selfies of your friends that look like paintings, don’t worry. Your friends haven’t magically become artists overnight (most likely). Prisma—an app that turns your photos into paintings—has been blowing up over the past couple weeks on Apple devices, and it’s now available for Android.

<![CDATA[Expanding On The Expanse Season 2]]> TheExpanseSyfy’s The Expanse is gearing up for its second season with the Martians taking front and center with the opening sequence of the new season set to feature the Martian badass Bobbie Draper played by newcomer to the show Frankie Adams.

The panel hosted by show super fan and science fiction aficionado Adam Savage started with a video clip describing the job requirements for being on the show.  It was a cute video that covered things like being able to handle zero gravity by way of wires, making coffee, and in the case of Shohreh Aghdashloo’s character Chrisjen Avasarala saying the word “Shit” in the most satisfying way you will ever hear.

The writers of the show asked about the work that they put in to make science and space work as a character in the show as well as a backdrop.  They talked about how they wanted the technology of the world to take a step back and be more like the wallpaper so that the story can focus on the people.  As a result they get to avoid the science fiction trope of having technology solve all problems of things like space flight and makes for a richer more compelling story.

The diversity of the cast came up a lot as the panel progressed with the cast talking about the fact that there is no racism in the show but planetism.  It’s very much about the Earthers v. the Martians v. the Belters.  Each group is just made up of humans with a mixtures of backgrounds that in our real world constructs are seen as races.  In the show everyone is Human and the cultural identities that define them come from the planet they were born on and not pigmentation.

If you have not yet caught up with The Expanse you can do so with the Syfy app.

<![CDATA[The Fan-Made Sonic Game That Won't Die]]>

When Doom was released in 1993 it was an undeniable boon to the game modding community, and among the many fan projects built on its bones was Sonic Robo Blast 2. Its slippery physics recalled the most celebrated Sonic titles and Doomguy’s inhumanly fast movement meshed perfectly with a a franchise all about speed. Development first began in 1998, and hasn’t really stopped since. Unlike many of Doom’s dusty one-off level mods, SRB’s most recent patch came in May of this year. After almost two decades, the game isn’t just surviving—it’s thriving.

But Aiptek has a different solution: The iBeamBlock a modular system that lets you buy just the components you need.

<![CDATA[Snotgirl #1: Bryan Lee O’Malley Is Back With A Surprising Read]]> We’ve been hearing about Snotgirl for a few months now, and she’s finally arrived. From Image Comics, written by Bryan Lee O’Malley, with art by Leslie HungSnotgirl #1 starts off by immersing us in a world filled with trendy names, blogs, iced coffees, and bright colors.

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 11.15.07 AM

Main character, Lottie Person appears to be a flawless fashionista, but in all reality she has horrible allergies that no one knows about. Allergies that literally make her nostrils fountains of boogers. Pretty picture, huh? Well, it’s the truth and you’ll see so for yourself. As I read through the comic I found myself amused. I knew what I was getting into with the content of the story centering around a popular blogger and enjoyed the character development. Lottie’s narration is amusing and her explanation of the people in her life makes for a comical experience. While I grew up around a lot of “texting language,” I very much appreciated Bryan including a little bit of an explanation for the dialogue.

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 10.58.01 AM

Bryan Lee O’Malley is known for his series Scott Pilgrim and Seconds, both works that I thoroughly enjoyed. I think that Lottie is a bit different from the characters featured in those stories, but they could definitely all hang out in a bar together. As you read through the first issue you may find yourself wondering when the plot is going to reveal itself, or if it’s just going to be a whole lot of internal dialogue about Lottie’s surroundings. I’m going to urge you to have more faith in master writer Bryan. The end of this comic made me exclaim “Wow!” because I truly didn’t expect such a surprising cliffhanger. With that said, I absolutely cannot wait for the next issue. Be sure to pick up Snotgirl #1 from your local comic book store today.

Our love for Galaxy Quest is well-documented here on the site. It's one of the best science fiction movies of the past twenty years, and it's a terrific parody of Star Trek. A new video from CouchTomato shows just how many things J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek reboot has in common with Galaxy Quest, and you can check them out below.

Trivia: Galaxy Quest was close to getting a sequel on Amazon, but Alan Rickman's death stopped it in its tracks. You can read more about that here.

Have you ever seen an anime where it seems all that happens is one guy gets a ton of unwanted attention from a bunch of oversexed teenage girls? That's what they call a "Harem" in the anime business. The type of show is typically for horny teens who have horny fantasies and know in the back of their minds stuff like this really doesn't happen but desperately hope it does.

I won't lie, I liked Tenchi Muyo back in the day, but now as a man grown, I can't bring myself to watch these anymore out of shame. This parody pretty much summarizes every one you'll ever see anyway. Truly well done...and a bit NSFW, so maybe don't watch it with your child on your lap?

It would appear that the poor reception to early trailers did not affect critics' views of Star Trek Beyond. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the film currently is tied with Star Trek: First Contact in terms of critical reviews with a 93% "Fresh" rating. As high as it is, that's still two percentage points off the rebooted 2009 version, which sits at a 95% approval:

I've only heard good things so far, and we'll be seeing it tonight all as a big group at the Comic-Con world premiere, so I'll be able to confirm it to you guys myself soon enough!
