It was a bit of a wait, but Fresh Goo is back, and on a new, more alliterative day!

Nintendo's Cat Mario Show is Creeping Me Out

Jul
18

Nintendo debuted a video series called Cat Mario Show on the European eShop yesterday, and it's more than a little strange. It's meant to be a show for children to help them learn more about Nintendo games, but it comes off as something closer to what a serial killer comes up with in his basement after getting his hands on Mario and Peach puppets and cat suits.

With Thor turning into a woman, and Batgirl getting a pretty great new costume, it seems that comic companies are trying to make their characters more culturally meaningful. Sometimes this is a happy accident, sometimes it’s a blatant marketing ploy. With that in mind, here are 10 characters that Marvel and DC tried to push into being a thing.

Hemlock Grove Continues to be a Really Mixed Bag: Bodily Fluids Recap

Jul
18

Well it seems Hemlock Grove has lost some of its traction. I wouldn't go as far to say that the series has hit a rough patch, more like a plateau. But we are almost halfway through the season and the various storylines have yet to coalesce or give sign that this is the writers' intention.

HBO's Games of Thrones Will Continue Without the Books if It Catches Up

Jul
18

George R.R. Martin likes to take his time with his books, but unfourtunately, that means that HBO's Game of Thrones is catching up to the published material at an alarming rate. Barring some kind of miraculous surprise on Martin's part, the TV show will run out of material to adapt in just a few short seasons. If (when) we hit that point, fans are split on whether or not HBO will take a break, or continue on without a book to guide them. We now finally have an official answer.

Another teaser for Gotham has been uploaded, and it's got James Gordon returning to the city to kick some ass and clean up some streets. I suppose that's easier said than done when you're going up against crazies like the Riddler and Penguin though.

Hemlock Grove Hits a Slow Patch: Luna Rea Recap

Jul
17

DOES ANYBODY STAY DEAD ON THIS SHOW?!?! At this rate I half expect Letha to reappear... which could be a good thing, bringing in a nice, new layer of conflict. But seriously. All of the characters I cared about last season are very much dead, yet here comes one I had no interest in seeing ever again.
