The Rules of The World According to President Faith Lehane

Does everyone remember that unconventional wild child, chosen one, who wasn't Buffy Summers. Oh course you do! Everybody loved to hate and hated to love the complicated 'other' slayer who seemed to be in complete juxtaposition to Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Although Buffy held the weight of the world on her shoulders and literally died not once, but twice for the world Faith Lehane, for the majority of her time as a slayer took a much more relaxed approach. So with this in mind we will look at the things that would happen if Faith Lehane were president. Please remember these are completely hypothetical ideas of the actions of a fictional character, so please don't feel the need to live in a leather jacket or take the 'screw school' approach. But do be Five by Five...

American Horror Story: Freak Show - 'Fallen Angel' Trailer


American Horror Story has successfully terrorfyied us for three consecutive years now and with the latest eerie trailer were presuming this will be the case for the fourth season.

Jessica Lange's (Constance, Sister Jude and Fiona Good) final season on the show will give, us for the last time, her iconic matriarchal role before she leaves Murphy and the cast behind. Freak Show will, like its predecessors, have a completely new and original theme and this season is The Carnival or as it was called in earlier years 'The Freak Show'.

Very little is known about this season- as many of you who follow American Horror Story (AHS) know that Ryan Murphy likes to keep his plans for this show very close to heart. But what we do know is that Lange's final character will speak with a German accent. There are a few other speculations however this is the only one that has been verified by Murphy himself. 

So what do you think of the trailer? Angelic? Innocence? The act is called 'The Fallen Angel', does this represent Satin? What is this act meant to be? When it come to AHS we are always left with more questions than answers. So please comment with your ideas or theories! 

American Horror Story: Freak Show is due to air in October this year on FX.

The Flash Extended trailer has 'zoomed' to our screens - and its awesome!


The arrow spinoff show The Flash, (portrayed by the painfully attractive Grant Gustin) has been teased at us for months now, with characters from The Flash appearing in Arrow over the course of the last two months of the second season , and having the marketing materials slowly drip fed to us. The powers that be at The CW have gave us an extended trailer. Portraying what is to come in the pilot episode and the overall season, and showing us what to expect from Barry Allen: The Flash.

The trailer implies that the night Barry Allen got his powers, he may not have been the only one. The teaser shows us his team and a mysterious man whom seeks to  recruit Barry and his team from, Star Lab, in order to search for other 'Meta-Humans' like himself. We see the death of his mother and the a first glimpse at The Flash's arch nemesis Zoom aka 'The Reverse Flash', who just happened to be the one who murdered Barry's mother. Honestly, theres just so much in this trailer (probably due to the five minute length)- but seriously, if you didn't want Arrow give this a watch and you'll be right up to 'speed'. And if you did, give it a watch anyway! It's worth it!

Oh and he casually woke up with a six pack... Now that's just not fair.

The Flash is set to air this fall on The CW.

Anthony Steward Head is still up for Buffy The Vampire Slayer Spinoff 'Ripper'


For years there has been talk and meetings, pitches and ideas for a spinoff show from Buffy The Vampire Slayer focusing on everyone's favourite watcher Rupert Giles (Head). Of course our prayers weren't answered and the show never became reality like 'Angel' did, however all hope isn't lost.

Dracula Untold - The First trailer released


After very little publicity this film has hidden under the radar. An innovative look at Vlad The Impaler (portrayed by Luke Evans), and his desperation to save his people and family; driving him to the darkness of the vampire. This film is a gothic reinvention mixed with a historical background - however the validity the films historical context is questionable. The film itself looks to be a great interpretation of Dracula looking for 'sympathy for the devil' which this two minute clip has easily managed. With the current gothic trend being dark characters and their pure intentions before corruption, this film is set to make us question everything literature, history and society told us about Dracula.

Finally a Dracula adaptation that involves, war, family, honour and of course supernatural elements; enriching mythology of the vampire and Dracula himself. This film could be set to be a huge blockbuster and success- providing it delivers. This type of adaptation has never been done before and I am very eager to see just how well the film does at the box office, however all we can do is wait!

Dracula Untold will be released in cinemas October 2014, due to delays.

50 'Odd' hours a week for The World Cup is rough!


As many of you know I work at ladbrokes alongside being a psychology student. However just before the World Cup started I got a promotion to customer service manger. The promotion is great and it's better money and more responsibility but with it being the World Cup I have been working all hours god sends- and then some. So this is simply an apology for my lack of posts and disappearance from the 'blogosphere'.

However I thought I would also use this post to explain a little more about myself. My name is Ryan Gamble - ironically! I am a full time student, part time manager and I am the creator and writer for this little blog you may or may not have stumbled on to. I am twenty years of age and live in the centre of Newcastle with the best bunch of friends a guy could ask for. If you want to know anymore about myself or my work just drop me an email or tweet me, all the links are on this site.

So with England out of the cup, I can finally spend the time working on great creative posts for you guys- it just didn't feel right rushing the posts, I want you all to get the best possible read of impeccable quality. So coming up this week I'm asking the question; Should MK go gay? I've got an Oranges is the New Black special, and season one review of Hemlock Grove, and are witches the new vampires? And I'll be running my very first completion at the beginning of this month! So as always, please subscribe to my blog or follow me on twitter and keep up with some of the oddest and quirkiest posts on the internet.

Thanks again, and my deepest apologies.

Ryan Gamble

P.S These past few weeks have put me off the World Cup for life!

Cassie Cage - Daughter of Johnny Cage & Sonya Blade and so much more announced!


Finally at the E3 conference this week Ed Boon announced new playable characters, locations and moves for the upcoming game Mortal Kombat X, and we were not disappointed! Ed Boon explained to us that this game will pick up just where the previous Mortal Kombat 9 (or 2011) left off and will span for twenty five years after. He then went on to explain that due to the time frame we will see new characters introduced into the MK Universe along with aged iconic characters.
