Shipping, initially derived from the word relationship, is the desire by fans for two or more fictional characters (in film, literature, television etc.) to be in a romantic relationship.

The actual term "shipping" saw its origin around 1995 by fans of the TV show The X-Files, who believed the two main characters, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, should be or were engaged in a romantic relationship. They called themselves "relationshippers," at first; then R'shipper, 'shipper, and finally just shippers.

The concept has spawned passionate fans of all types of media, resulting in everything from online arguments to full-on fan fiction. On this episode, we take a look at our favorite characters in both movies and television that we would love to see "get together", as well as discuss the ones who finally have and might not have worked out as positively as we had hoped.

Also this week, Shaft and Child's Play finally receive trailers, Avatar begins live-action production, and Superman is taken to task for his building relocation skills. Our feature this week is Discover An Actor's Gem, where we discuss an unheralded film in a favorite actor's filmography and why it deserves a watch. Reviews of Cold Pursuit, The LEGO Movie 2, The Man Who Killed Hitler and the Bigfoot, a peek at new releases, and much more.
