WHAT THE F**K IS WRONG WITH SPOCK’S FACE
I’ve seen store-bought Star Trek costumes that look better than Zachary Quinto does as Spock on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly. I’m sure that’s his real hair, but it looks more like a wig than an actual wig. And would it kill Chris Pine to put on a fucking Starfleet uniform for a while? Jesus. If all the nerds who hadn’t seen a rough cut of the film?including Shaun of the Dead‘s Edgar Wright?hadn’t universally loved it, I’d be ready to write this one off as a hideous teleporter accident.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
