Friday Linkspam

Before we get to today’s linkspam, I have a quick announcement: I’m now covering Wilfred and Haven for the fantastic new online magazine Wit&Fancy, so if you’re looking for my weekly reviews for Wilfred they’ll now be exclusively over there. Please check out the other articles when you stop by, it’s a terrific magazine created by smart, witty ladies that covers a wide variety of subjects from a young, female perspective.

Now as Miranda Hart would say, on with the show:

+Jane Espenson Introduces First Marriage Equality Comedy

Husbands from former Buffy writer Espenson and Brad Bell will debut online in September and be comprised of eleven episodes, each one two minutes in length for a total of 22 minutes—the standard length of a traditional sitcom pilot, and hopefully a big hint to networks if it turns out to be as cool as everything else Espenson touches.

+ SMG Clones Herself for Ringer

No, not really. Come on, guys. In other SMG is awesome news, she’s the latest celeb to agree to return to All My Children for its swan song.

+ 8 Things We Learned at Hart of Dixie Press Tour

Rachel Bilson’s new show is just one of several new shows set in the deep south. The trailer made me cringe, but Bilson’s charming as always. Personally, I’m more interested in Good Christian Belles (previously, more promisingly titled Good Christian Bitches) starring my beloved Kristin Chenoweth.

+First Look at American Horror Story

I was already excited about this project, but now that Tim Minear is on board, I’m going to have to start counting down the days to October 5th.

+ Downton Abbey: A Touch of Class

One lucky reporter’s recap of a recent visit to the set.

+ Freedom in an Unfree World: A Libertarian Examination of Firefly

Today’s Smart Pop Essay is well worth a read for Firefly fans.

+ Finally, I think I’ve shared this video on every social media site on the web now, but I just can’t get enough of it.
