5 Shows After Dark: This Guy Looks Like a Cosplay of Himself | 16 Things Working Parents Should Know About the Horrors of Caring for Sick Children

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Maddy

    No Tyrion and Cersei? I now want a crossover with Ned, Cersei and the Doctor

  • Conor

    Tall Guy and Brian just don't understand Rafi.


  • Strand

    I don't know if I'm a mutant... but I've always thought Lady Edith was cuter than Mary in Downton. Sure, she's quite petty and vindictive, but they portray her as borderline trollish in that show and I've always thought Laura Carmichael was quite lovely.

  • Welldressed

    I'm sorry to delve into the superficial, but can we talk about Julianna Margulies' arms in that picture? She is magnificent.

    That is all.

  • ellie

    God fucking dammit, Hugh Dancy.

  • Colleen Mitchell

    Eli Gold and Becca.

  • kirbyjay

    Eli and Jackie.

  • manting

    Steve Austin and Bigfoot (the 6 million dollar man)

  • IngridToday

    The Pam/Sookie rivarly would suggest Pam and Sookie are equals. Pam is divine and Sookie an arrogant confused idiot who is somehow is still alive.

  • manting

    Trueblood, the show where nothing makes sense and the dudes are always completely ripped and shirtless. In a town named after a bar on Magazine street, a town where there are: serial killers, ghosts, Vampires, Middle Eastern Flame Demons, Mediums, Werewolves, Vampire Blood addicts, Necromancy, Shapeshifters, Orgies, Fairies, possession, a telepath, witches, a Maenad, covens, werecat meth clans, half-vampire half fairies, and a girl named sookie who has loved them all. This is all in a town of maybe a thousand and it has only one bar restaurant and maybe 15 people who are "human." I cant believe Deadwood and Carnival got cancelled and this show gets 7 seasons?!!

  • emmalita

    If you try to apply too much logic to True Blood, you may start bleeding from the nose and ears, or turn into a Maenad and dance yourself to death in a frenzy.

  • manting

    I don't think they have writers, instead there is a troop of monkeys that fling feces onto a wall and those feces patterns are deciphered by Alan Ball. How the fuck could the guy who wrote American Beauty helm such inane dreck?

  • Pants-are-a-must

    And that was the last time Mads Mikkelsen smiled with his teeth.

  • I'd say Spike and Angel over Spike and Xander, as far as rivalries go. Also, that Dr. Who photo looks like a Modigliani painting, or a giraffe exhibit.

  • Adrienne Marie

    Yeah, but Xander HATED Spike. Though, I feel as if Spike was more annoyed/amused by Xander, so that rivalry was one sided.

  • Xander hating Spike is kind of like Burkina Faso hating America. Only one side there is ever going to notice that the other side even exists. For there to be a rivalry, there has to be a chance of the other side actually winning or being a credible threat. Xander was only ever a danger to himself.

  • madderrose74

    I look at that and think that, somewhere in time and space, the Doctor picked up Sarah Connor as a companion and they both went to find Sean Bean and save him from certain death. And that, friends, makes me happy.

  • JenVegas

    awwww Spike and Xander.

  • BendinIntheWind

    What I would give to be the meat in the Brian/Kevin-Rafi sandwich...

  • Sean

    Joanna and Hardwick

  • John W

    I see what you did there.

  • manting

    I never watched Dallas but J.R. and someone?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Alexis Carrington and whoever Linda Evans played.

  • manting

    Chang and "The study group" (community)

  • Pretty much everyone.

  • manting

    Hawk Eye and Frank Burns (M.A.S.H.) Homer Simpson and Frank Grimes (Simpsons) Lion-O and Mum-ra (thundercats) Sam Malone and Diana (Cheers)

  • emmalita

    I would love a picture of Alan Alda and Larry Linville hugging it out.

  • Sarah

    Hard thinking of Jesse and Gus as rivals. That was for about one episode, then after that they worked together.

  • melancholicmess

    Hallo Newman....

  • LD

    Boyd and Raylan are not rivals just misguided star crossed lovers.

  • If I were a politician I'd hire Lena Headey to be my campaign manager and then my chief of staff when we won. Or maybe I'd just ask her to run herself. I dare anyone to fuck with her.

  • Holy F*cking Sh*t!! I need a Game of Thrones/West Wing mash up right the f*ck now!

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I think Cersi should be a White House press secretary. Could you see her answering reporters' questions? It would be magic.

  • emmalita

    She could have a wine pouring intern near the lectern. She would stare down the impertinent reporter while holding out her goblet to be refilled.

  • kirbyjay

    I love the word "goblet" It's like a baby goblin.

  • Welldressed

    Emma, that is my favorite thing you've ever said. Bless you for putting that into my consciousness. It will be running gif-like in my head forever.

  • emmalita

    /does a little curtsy and puts on Southern drawl. Thank you, kind GentlePerson. And you're welcome.

  • Giroux IA

    How about Neville Longbottom and puberty?

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    That's not a rivalry, he beat the shit out of puberty and emerged a gleaming specimen of masculinity.

    Puberty had an easier fight with Radcliffe and Grint.

  • manting

    Radcliff makes Tom Cruise look like John Cusak

  • Bananapanda

    His height went in his neck!

  • Juxyn

    I'm not sure what you are trying to say, but I like it!

  • manting

    Radcliff is very tiny. Like 5'3 tiny.

  • bastich

    What, no Maggie Simpson and Unibrow Baby?

  • manting


  • BWeaves

    Ned and Cersei and the Doctor? WTF?

    In what universe do they even exist together?

  • axis2clusterB

    I have no idea, but it sure did make me happy.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    He gets around. Wibbly-wobbley encompasses alternate, fictional universes. He's probably had Hermione Granger as a companion at some point.



    ...Holy shit.

    *suddenly understands why people write fanfiction*

  • Joe Grunenwald

    The TARDIS detects a temporal disturbance in the wizarding world caused by misuse of a device known as a time-turner, which is actually built from miniaturized Gallifreyan technology ("Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."). It seems Lord Voldemoort has gotten his hands on one and plans to use it to resurrect The Master. Together they will conquer all time and space and kill Harry Potter before he's even born, and only The Doctor and Hermione Granger can stop them!

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    You win the Internet today.

  • Berry

    I need this to exist now.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    A shocking number of people seem to feel the same. If I knew the key to massive upvotes was this simple, I'd have done something like this sooner.

  • emmalita

    It's the ellipses.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    ... Really?




  • zeke_the_pig


  • Gigi Agius

    I see what you did there...

  • Zen

    Cersei and just about anybody, really. Lady knows how to burn a bridge.

  • IngridToday

    Lady knows how to burn a bridge.... while drinking a glass of wine.

  • Lady knows how to burn a bridge while drinking a glass wine... while giving a master-class in bitchfaces.

  • Hayley

    RIP Ned Stark. *weeps*
