Random Tuesday: Gender Swap Cosplay, Starks Are Just Like Us & BBC America Is My Favorite

I would like to start this week's Random Tuesday with a question: are you watching Orphan Black? It's BBC America's newest sci-fi series and, while it starts off feeling like a weird drama, the end of the first episode explodes in great sci-fi awesomeness and action. Why do the British make the best science fiction?

Also, Bioshock: Infinite? Brilliant. I think we're only about half way through it, but I think it might have surpassed my love of Final Fantasy games, which I didn't think possible.

I have no idea where this picture came from (found it on Pinterest) or whose small children these are, but this is the best gender swap cosplay I have ever seen. If it wouldn't look completely ridiculous, I'd totally do it, but I'll leave it to the little girls for now. If you know who to credit, let me know.

Speaking of BBC America being awesome, they're adapting Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Suzanna Clarke, which is a seriously awesome book that everyone should read right now.

Batman: Arkham Origins was announced earlier today and will be released in October. I personally didn't make it through Arkham City, not because it wasn't good, but because it freaked me out and left me overly stressed. Fernando really enjoyed it though, so this game will find a home in our household as well. I'm just glad they didn't go with Arkham State.

Jason Segal is writing YA novels now? o.O

You know those "Stars! They're Just Like Us" things in trashy mags? This is like "Starks! Lannisters! They're Just Like Us!" and it's a little disconcerning. Buzzfeed pull together pictures of Game of Thrones actors doing normal things.

Someone made a TARDIS refridgerator. That must hold a lot of food. And many other things.

Margery Tyrell is crossing over to Elementary as Sherlock's Irene Adler. I sort of stopped watching this show, but Fernando still enjoys it and Irene is always an interesting character.

 

That's what I have for this week. What random things have you stumbled upon over the last week?
