‘Big Bang Theory’: Leonard as Lion-O from ‘ThunderCats’? — FIRST LOOK
ThunderGeeks, hooooo! On tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory (on CBS at 8 p.m.), Leonard (Johnny Galecki) meets the holy grail of heterosexual male geekdom: A girl who loves comic books. He even meets Alice (Courtney Ford, True Blood) while shopping for comics, and the two bond so well over their respective collections, Leonard shows off one of his prize possessions: A drawing of Leonard as Lion-O from the animated series ThunderCats by DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee. Naturally, the fine folks at Big Bang actually got the real Jim Lee to do the drawing. Wanna see it? Of course you do!
Hey, guys! So, we’re all familiar with Cyberpunk and Steampunk, but there are so many more alternate histories/speculative science fiction genres out there! I came across this handy-dandy infographic and figured I could share a bit of these punk genres for anyone interested.
Steampunk Roughly covers the Western world during the mid- to late-19th century (ie: Victorian era, US wild west, etc.), and sometimes up to the Edwardian era.
Dieselpunk 1920s up through WWII, ending at just about the Cold War.
Decopunk A cleaner, artistic, more “optimistic” version of Dieselpunk (same time period)
Clockpunk Covers the time of the Renaissance (think da Vinci)
