This Doctor Who Video Will Give You Nightmares!

There are really only three episodes of Doctor Who that I have trouble rewatching: “The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances” always freaks me out, “The Water of Mars” still gives me full body shudders, and last week’s “Arachnids in the UK” was deeply unsettling because spiders should not be the size of ponies.


Disney Is Lining up for the Ultimate Female Hero Crossover

Disney is buying 21st Century Fox, which means that they’ll be adding the X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Simpsons, Futurama, and a whole slew of movie and television properties to their already huge portfolio. They’re also picking up arguably one of the greatest heroes of the late 90’s/early 2000’s, and the crossover possibilities are very exciting: Buffy is coming to Disney.




Xfinity X1 Loves the Olympics Like a True Sports Fan!

I love when the Olympics come every two years. It might make me a dork, but there’s something thrilling about cramming so much multiculturalism, athleticism, teamwork, and behind the scenes drama into a few intense weeks that is absolutely captivating.


Stranger Things Game Will Get You Lost in the Upside Down

Stranger Things is coming in just a few weeks! If you live under a rock, “Stranger Things” is a horror-ish drama from Netflix that is an homage to the 1980s. It has evil scientists, parallel dimensions, plucky pre-teen heroes, and Winona Ryder screaming at Christmas lights. Now it also has a companion game, and it is incredibly addictive!

Missing Game of Thrones Already? This Adaptation of “Winds of Winter” Will Help!

The pace at which George RR Martin has been publishing his “Song of Ice and Fire” series is almost like a math problem. If there are two years between releases for the first, second and third books, then five years for the fourth book and six years for the fifth book, how many years until the sixth book is released? Well, the good folks at io9 found out about a…



Meet the 13th (Sort of?) Doctor in Doctor Who!

I am not always a regular watcher of “Doctor Who”, but I always enjoy the show when I remember to watch it. Personally, my favorite season was David Tennant and Catherine Tate, because she was a tough woman who rolled with the insanity that is travel with The Doctor. It’s so hard to judge from a teaser, but I get some very “kicking ass and taking names” vibes from the…


The Trailer for the “Santa Clarita Diet” Shows Why Netflix Wins Streaming

Streaming video is where everyone wants to be, and the newest entry is a modern take on portraying a hungry zombie, desperate to return to its old life and consuming the living as a poor substitute for true life force. Yes, Apple Music is entering the video business. Oh, and Netflix has a cool new show with Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant!


Grinding Gears Top 5 from 2016

It still surprises me just how many vehicles grace the test driveway each calendar year. It also surprises me what has not yet made it down our way when I look at the number of new or refreshed vehicles that have hit the market this year. Here is a look at my top five faves from 2016.


Supergirl Soars in Embracing a Beautiful Coming Out Story

Just about every person who identifies as anything other than straight has their “story”. We all have that moment where the niggle in the back of our head, the one said “something is different” finally turned into a full-blown realization. It’s something I’ve personally never seen expressed well in television … until Supergirl.



Star Trek’s 50th Means So Much Because Star Trek Reflects Us

Earlier today, Joel showcased the ways Star Trek has influenced technology in the last 50 years, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg for what Star Trek has done for pop culture. Star Trek is so much more than just science fiction; from its campy beginnings onwards, it was an examination of humanity and culture, all wrapped in a big trojan starship. First, the most obvious one is that…


Board Up Your Windows, Sharknado 4 Is Coming!

Ah, summer. Long days, warm nights, and storms full of razor sharp teeth…yes, Sharknado is back again! You may recall that the last segment opened with President Mark Cuban, Vice President Anne Coulter, and Ian Ziering fighting sharks at the White House, and ended with David Hasselhoff on the moon and a shark about to land on Tara Reid. If possible, the next segment looks even crazier!


Martin Bros Customs Rise in ‘Iron Resurrection’

Drop Everything and Watch this “Orange is the New Black”/”Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

If you have a Netflix subscription and haven’t watched “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Orange is the New Black”, please head off to binge both immediately. We’ll wait here. If you’re back, keep reading, because the tribute video of your dreams was released by Netflix yesterday, where the ladies of Litchfield celebrate the upcoming Kimmy Schmidt season 2 release with “Honey Jar” (a tribute to “Peeno Noir”)


Weird Science is on Hulu, and My Productivity is Shot!

Do you remember the USA show Weird Science? It ran in the mid-90’s, and it was based on the John Hughes film of the same name. I loved that show, because it came on every Saturday night after the kids I babysat for went to bed. So when I found it on Hulu, I dropped everything to relive the 90s! Here’s the fascinating part: I expected to watch a few…
