Salem Review: The Vo...

  One of the things that intrigued me, amongst the wave of early American televisions series that are popping up, is that Salem looked to divert from the norm. It was, as I rightly assumed, was to be more of an interpretation of events then just a bland retelling of the known story....

Game of Thrones: Sea...

Here’s the thing about Game of Thrones. It’s totally and ridiculously addictive. Whether you start watching the programme or reading the books, at some point you will find yourself switching between the two, arguing about the Targaryan conspiracy theory and muttering valar morghulis under your breath at anyone that annoys you.

Asking for It: Conse...

Consent. We don’t always get sexy around here, but today I think we will. This post will contain some mature subject matter. Yesterday I discovered this link, which may be a little triggery (don’t read the comments) and is NSFW, but the message is a good one: that if someone...

Basically, I’m...

  It’s finally here. Veronica is back. And really back — I mean, the film earned $2 million in its opening weekend, only showing on 291 screens. That’s impressive. I’m going to backtrack just a bit. On Saturday, I spent a decent amount of time rewatching the end...

“You’ll never survive the zombie apocalypse,” I sighed at my mother the other day. “That’s okay – if it happens I’ll just ring you!” And, a moment later, “I’m curious… how would I know the zombie apocalypse is happening?” … Hopeless.

Call For Submissions...

Hello, SuperFolk! As some of you may know, we are coming up on our one year anniversary in May! One whole year here. We’ve gone from our cute little WordPress.com site to our self-hosted, rather snazzier site. We’ve gone from 1,000 views in a month to 15,000. We’ve had over...

Today I’m pleased to welcome a fantastic writer friend to Searching for SuperWomen. I first met Amanda back at a writing conference in 2012, and I could not be more thrilled to have her here with us today! Please welcome Amanda Gardner!   Last summer I took a trip to the biggest...

Pandemic: The Game You Learn to Love and Hate Feb19

Pandemic: The Game Y...

I confess I’m a gamer. Formerly an online gamer. Now a board gamer. And the game my friends and I love to play (and hate) is Pandemic. Pandemic is a game that does not encourage backstabbing. You want to be working together because Pandemic will be doing its best to kill you every turn....

  Double Fine Studios is back with its latest adventure game, Broken Age.  This time we are given an episodic point-and-click adventure that incorporates the fun artistic style Double Fine is known for along with it signature snarky wit and fun puns.  However, that aside, there can be...

It’s Time to Game Feb12

It’s Time to G...

So this month’s theme here on Searching for SuperWomen is gaming – in its many forms and faces. I’m not much of a gamer if I’m completely honest (does a Pocket Gameboy count? I had one of those). In fact, my gaming experience to date has included Ecco the Dolphin (on a...

Top Ten Reasons Drag...

2014 brings a lot of things. The Broncos and Seahawks in the Super Bowl. Bizarre antics by Justin Bieber succumbing to what I’d like to dub “pop star panic.” Sleepy Hollow’s amazing finale. A new passport for me. Scotland’s referendum on independence. My debut...

The Weakness of a Companion – Welcome to the Moffat Era Jan28

The Weakness of a Co...

Oh boy. Where do I begin? I was super psyched to put together this series focusing on the companions of Doctor Who (or more accurately, of “New Who”, the series since 2005). If you haven’t read the previous installments, I am a fan of all the Russel T. Davies era companions (Rose, Martha,...

Dracula Recap: Let T...

    For this summation of the final episode for the season (hopefully not the series), one word comes to mind, post mortem. Not just because the series is “in the can”, so to speak, but for the fact that it felt like an autopsy, both literally and figuratively, for many of the...

Introducing the Mock...

Please welcome author Evette Davis to Searching for SuperWomen! Take it away, Evette!   Last year ended with mixed reviews regarding the number and quality of female role models in popular entertainment.  With the exception of Heat, summer movies were an almost zero-sum game, only a few...

Dear Executive Producers, Creators, Writers, and Directors of Face Off. Whoever makes the decision to consistently put the first few rounds as group challenges needs to be fired. It is entirely too difficult to tell a persons full potential as an artist straight from the gate when they are...

Introducing Shrike Jan20

Introducing Shrike

Emmie here! For your Tuesday, I have some very exciting news. When I founded Searching for SuperWomen in April of 2013, I was just setting out on submission with a superhero novel called SHRIKE. Today I am delighted to announce that SHRIKE has been acquired by Mary-Theresa Hussey at Harlequin...

Dracula Recap: Four ...

One thing that can be said, to this show’s detriment and in my opinion, is that it has never really had a WOW moment. One of those striking moments where the audience is was genuinely surprised and left jaws on the floor over what just happened. This can wholly be to the nature and somewhat...

Sleepy Hollow –...

There are certain things that seem strange about a mid season hiatus. Granted, most of the time they split it to avoid holidays to keep their ratings up. Sure, it’s a tactical maneuver. Some shows such as Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, and others don’t particularly need that, but hey, they’re...

Series Premiere R...

Several months ago I wrote about the upcoming show, Bitten, based off of Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld book series. Fans had been nervous about taking the print version and putting into a show, because lets face it, several books have been destroyed by putting them on screen....

  The special effects makeup competition, Face Off, is back with our awesome host, McKenzie Westmore and our favorite judges, Glenn Hetrick, Ve Neill, and Neville Page. Last years season was fantastic with the rookies vs. veterans, but now we’re back to all rookies. They’re going to have...
