Movie Poop Shoot imagines Peanuts with Joss Whedon at the helm.
The Toronto Star discusses "The Brokeback Effect". We've seen most of them - the fan videos being passed around the internet: Brokeback to the Future, Brokeback Top Gun, Brokeback Office, Brokeback Goldmine. But there's more! This article discusses "slash", which it defines as: "It's the fan art of making an unlikely couple out of same-sex characters from a show or movie and exploring that relationship."
Here's some slash offerings:
"LOST: If you can think of a Lost pairing, someone out there has already made a video.

BUFFY & ANGEL: Pretty vampires. You just can't go wrong.
One of the best-ever slash videos is set to Nine Inch Nails' "Closer." As you can imagine, there's nothing mild about it. Enjoy Angel/Spike it at http://sisabet.livejournal.com/220944.h
By the way, if you aren't interested in naughty pairings, but intrigued by fan videos, look at http://www.smallvilleexcape.com for "Chosen," a neatly edited mash of Buffy and Clark fighting the forces of evil kinda together.

Entertainment Weekly reviews Veronica Mars.
"Of course, the show simply wouldn't work if it weren't for Bell, who's in pretty much every scene and uses her tart delivery to keep things from getting too gloomy. Banging around in an old LeBaron convertible, blithely brushing off adversity, launching bubble-gum-flavored retorts at everyone from disappointing beaus to bullying FBI agents, Veronica Mars is like a cute female Fletch. Her witty interactions with friends and foes are as vivid as ever: ''My boyfriend just fled the country with his dead ex-girlfriend's baby. I need a project,'' she smiles, in her typically glib way, while wheedling an assignment. And Veronica's relationship with her PI dad (Enrico Colantoni) is the best father-daughter act on TV, full of fondness and nudging sarcasm.
The dialogue on Mars is on a par with the best of the 1930s screwball comedies: One gets the feeling creator Thomas has watched his share of Howard Hawks films, particularly when exes Veronica and Logan swap their sexually charged insults. (Part adorable and part loathsome, Dohring's mischievous, twitchy Logan has morphed into the ultimate bad-boy fixer-upper — which is, of course, what teenage girls like best.) So watch Veronica to try to unravel that rat's nest of a mystery, or watch for the snappy writing and knowing chemistry. One of Hawks' most entertaining films, the Bogart-Bacall mystery The Big Sleep, was famously hard to untangle too. Veronica has its spirit, and that's a huge compliment. "
