Xena gets a new suit

Lucy Lawless has joined the season two cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Best known for her role as the Xena in the ’90s television hit Xena: Warrior Princess, Lawless will get to try her hand at something completely different, portraying veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Isabelle Hartley, who assists Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) with his unenviable task of rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D into the formidable spy agency it once was.

No word yet on whether or not her character gets a vibranium chakram. One can only hope.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D premieres on September 23.

Meet Every Single Doctor From Doctor Who

The doctors are in

The British sci-fi television show Doctor Who premiered in 1963 and stars a time-traveling alien called The Doctor. As a plot device, the Doctor is able to regenerate himself into an entirely “new,” person which allows for the show’s producers to conveniently change the lead actor as they see fit, with the thirteenth and latest incarnation of The Doctor played by Peter Capaldi.

Take a look back at all the actors who’ve played the Doctor over the years.

The People and Animals With the Best Shark Costumes for Shark Week

The outfits are so cute, we can only hope they live EVERY week like it's Shark Week

In case you were unaware, it’s officially Shark Week, Discovery Channel’s annual deluge of shark-related programming. Some people — like, for example, scientists who actually know things about sharks — are not super into this annual sharkstravaganza, claiming that it peddles fiction disguised as fact. But others — you know, the rest of us plebs who just thinks sharks are super awesome — are still pretty into the whole thing.

And so, we’d like to take a moment to pay tribute to the especially die-hard Shark Week fans: the people (and animals) who’ve dressed up like sharks to mark the occasion. We can only hope that these folks are truly taking to heart that age-old advice to “live every week like it’s Shark Week.” We have a feeling they are.

Originally named “Smokey Bear,” the beloved public service icon was created as a collaborative effort by the U.S. Forest Service, the National Association of State Foresters, and the Ad Council to educate the country about forest fires.
