    It’s the moment critters (Critical Role fans) have been waiting for for years. The season one premier of The Legend of Vox Machina is officially available on Amazon Prime, and old and new fans alike are pumped.

    Not familiar with Critical Role or the new TV series? Here’s some quick details to catch you up:

    • The Legend of Vox Machina is based on the beloved Critical Role YouTube show, a D&D livestream starring eight well-known voice actors you may recognize from video games, anime, and cartoons.

    • The TV series started as a 20-min special kickstarter back in 2019 and earned over $11 million, making it the highest funded movie/TV kickstarter in history.

    • The show is based on the first campaign of Critical Role and has already been greenlit for season two.

    • The first Critical Role campaign has over 100 episodes, each averaging 4 hours, so the sheer amount of content may be daunting to some – that’s where the condensed TV series comes in.

    • Interested? Check out the show's trailer, clips (here and here), live reading from the cast, the extended cast (oof, there's some big names here), or title sequence. Be warned this show is 18+.

    According to the Critical Role site, episodes will be released in batches over the course of four weeks, which means you’ll have plenty of time to fall or fall back in love with Vox Machina. While you wait for new episodes, why not pick up another high fantasy series? Scroll down and see which book we recommend based on your favorite Vox Machina member.

    National Teddy Bear Day is celebrated on the 9th of September, and it’s a fantastic excuse to snuggle up to a favorite childhood friend or revisit the stories and characters of childhood. And while teddy bears are usually known as being cute, cuddly, and very wholesome, there are plenty of teddies that are far cooler than you may expect!

    These bears of pop culture fame aren’t just fluffy friends for bedtime—they are going on adventures, battling monsters, or generally throwing off the shackles of their cutesy reputation to become a whole new kind of bear…

    Ever since her first appearance in Iron Man 2 in 2012, fans have been clamoring for a stand-alone Black Widow film. Set to kick off phase four of the MCU in 2020, Black Widow, was ready to set the box office on fire, but the long-awaited film was further delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. Now, over a year later, Black Widow is poised to make her first solo film appearance on both Disney+ and in theaters. With all of this in mind, we at Quirk wanted to take a look at some of the great pop culture projects which were a little bit late but well worth the wait.

    This month, Disney’s bright new summer movie hits streaming services—the Italian seaside story of Luca. This movie is a far cry from the classic stories of princesses dreaming for a prince to save them, and instead, is about two young sea monsters who want to explore human life on land. Of course, there are plenty of inspiring moments about friendship, trying new things, and learning about people who are different—and some very literal "fish out of water" gags!

    Luca promises to be a charming addition to the Disney library, but it’s not the only movie that has seen humans befriending the things that go splash in the night.

    Fresh on the heels of the time-traveling and reality altering adventures of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel is back to bend minds and generally sow time-based chaos with a limited TV series, all centered on Loki. In the trailers, we see Loki grabbed and taken away by agents of The Time Variance Authority, of which he becomes an agent (in his own chaotic way, presumably).

    The Time Variance Authority looks suitable, surreal, weird, and like a lot of fun, but it’s interesting to note that it is hardly the first organization trying to apply rules and paperwork-detail to time and space. Here are a few more organizations trying to do the same thing.

    “April showers bring May flowers,” as the adage goes. While there are a variety of naming schemes for people in the world, like religious names, familial names and virtue naming, one of the most popular has for a long time been floral names. Since it is now the month of May, we wanted to look at some of our favorite floral characters and provide you with links to the flowers they are named after to build your ultimate floral garden.
