the latest installment of the popular BEN 10 franchise (airing on Cartoon
Network – “Ben 10 Bootcamp” marathon this weekend)!

In BEN 10 OMNIVERSE, superhero Ben Tennyson is looking forward to working
solo with his brand new Omnitrix, a watch-like device that allows him to
change into different kinds of aliens. But Grandpa Max has other ideas,

to fight. Keiji dies on the battlefield, only to be reborn each morning to

Shout! Factory has announced the May 7 release of K9: The Complete Series. The 4-DVD set contains all 26 original episodes along with bonus features. Originally created for the 1977 ‘DOCTOR WHO’ episode ‘The Invisible Enemy’ by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, K9 has long been an iconic television character. But now K9 stars in his own brand-new adventure series! The set is available for pre-order on Amazon.com and ShoutFactory.com.

Blasting back into action via a space time manipulator, everyone’s favorite robot dog arrives in late 21st-century London, now scarred by alien intrusion and government rule through their cybernetic police force.

With the assistance of teenagers Jorjie, Darius, drifter Starkey and Professor Gryffen, K9 becomes Earth’s front-line defence against dangers threatening from any place – and anytime – in the galaxy! They will have a lot of fun, action, adventure, and some jolts along the way, saving the earth from alien creatures, scary monsters and more than a few nasty humans!

Mixing live action characters with stunning visual-effects, K9 is a children’s sci-fi/adventure series combining comedy, action and suspense. Imagine a mash-up of X Files and Men in Black with a zany dash of Ghostbusters and then add one magnificent metallic mutt, and there you have K9!

I’ll be moving from the Wests Coast to the East Coast. My internet access will be minimal for a while so please forgive  the lack of new posts while I make the big move. I’ll be back up and running as soon as possible, hopefully with some new staff as well. Thanks for your patience.

from The Nerdist:

Are you ready to find out how the west was Won-dercon? Puns aside,WonderCon, the massive convention for all things nerd, is happening this weekend in Anaheim, CA and we’ll be letting you know what to get excited for all week long – from the superheroic to the supernatural. Speaking of which, forget vampires and werewolves; we’ll take witches any day of the week. The crafty coven of CW’s Secret Circle are bubbling, bubbling, toiling and troubling up a storm this season and we sat down with the spellbinding Jessica Parker Kennedy to talk about her otherworldly oeuvre:

Nerdist News: You play a witch on the CW’s Secret Circle. Have you ever had any supernatural scares? Don’t worry; your secret is safe with us.

Jessica Parker Kennedy: 
My mom and I lived in a house back in Calgary, AB that we were convinced was haunted. Things were always going missing and turning up in utterly ridiculous places that we thought we never would have put them.

NN: What has your experience with fandom been? Any awkward fan interactions you can tell us about?

Their support and enthusiasm is always on my mind everyday when I go to work.  No crazy stories yet but I keep getting stopped by women in changing rooms when I’m buying clothes which is definitely awkward.

WonderCon kicks off in earnest this Friday and be sure to check out the Secret Circle panel at 4PM to see a never-before-seen episode. Then, stick around afterwards for one of the most wonderful events of the evening: an incredibly awesomeNerdist panel with Chris Hardwick and surprise guests, in which secrets will be revealed! In the meantime, read our full interview with Jessica Parker Kennedy and stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter for continued con-derful updates and exciting giveaways.
