It is, once again, that wonderful time of year!* No, not Christmas, it’s Halloween! Well, almost. Anyway, what are your plans? Figured out your costume yet?
Pop quiz, hot shot! Who was the youngest person to walk on the Moon? Hint: it’s his birthday today. (Yes, obviously it’s a man.)
I mean - don’t go trainsurfing at all, but apparently in Russia it’s more creatively dangerous. At least if you believe this PSA that lives up to Happy Tree friends (the only words in the comments I can read:) or Dumb ways to Die, so - Warning of cartoon violence and gore. Also - I wouldn’t be surprised if somewhere…
The humanoid robots from Westworld took to the streets of London yesterday, following in the footsteps of Daleks and Cybermen. The HBO show gets its UK debut on Sky Atlantic tomorrow evening which is a good excuse to unleash body-painted mechanoids on the London Underground and key landmarks.
In case you missed this on Saturday, the day when the US government throws all the news stories you don’t want to know or hear, and that they don’t want you to know or hear (“garbage day”, as the working pols like to say), the US government has relinquished control of the singular seat of power in deciding how the…
Hello everyone, and welcome to the dual-episode season finale of the FtWD live thread. Tonight: “Wrath”: “Travis is blindsided by new refugees at the hotel. Meanwhile, Nick must make the decision to leave the Colonia or stay with Luciana.” AND: “North”: “Travis’ rage causes upset at the RBH, and Madison must decide if…
Hi. If you have watched the 13 episodes of Luke Cage, or if you don’t care what happens in those 13 episodes, then this post is for you. If you have any concerns about spoilers stop looking at this post and go here instead for non-spoiler Luke Cage discussion.
They love queues. (Or lines ;) ) So much order. And discipline. 0:23: “Clive! Where do you think you’re going. Get back in line!
Some people say the incredibly complicated time travel paradox plots are examples of cheap, hacky writing. Well, I still usually get a kick out of them and enjoyed last night listening to the 2008 Doctor Who audio play Brotherhood of the Daleks.
A very strange thread on Twitter (I was just an interested bystander) got me to thinking about some of the crap people would put into your Trick-or-Treat bags when we were kids. The stuff you had left in the pile after you’d eaten all the M&M’s and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The D-list candies, if that’s not being…
Back again and this time we have the last two episodes of season 4, which mark the end of the first era of the show.
How’s everybody doing? Me, not too shabby. I’ve been doing some cooking this morning and streaming the Petite LeMan from Road Atlanta as I slowly but surely get some things done today. I also caught myself talking like the Swedish Chef just because I had a wooden spoon in my hand. Bork!
The Seventh Doctor returns to BBC Radio 4 Extra for four nights starting on Monday at 18:00. Do they still call that thread the Seventh Dimension?
A few years ago I listened to the audiobook version of Stephen King’s short story Jerusalem’s Lot while driving somewhere in or around “The Loneliest Road in America” (U.S. Route 50, NV). Part of King’s Night Shift collection, I’m not sure if I had read that story prior to that road trip, but the audiobook certainly…
We’re well on our way into the fall tv season, though there are still lots of shows to premiere (including all The CW ones). Check below for premiere information on all your favorite genre shows.
So this year, I am teaching a special Ed class in the afternoon. I have to write Individual Education Plans for all my students. You’ll never guess what browser we have to use to access the Web based application used by my school board:
Con: You take off random people’s body parts. Pro: You have a chainsaw for hand!!! (also - you’re probably Bruce Campbell...)
This week a strange infection causes the crew some trouble. Everyone get your best Dana Carvey impressions ready, because on board the Enterprise, it’s...
Welcome to another Friday Open Thread, where politics is both appreciated and disdained.
