How did you like last night's episode of Gotham? Where were actual Viper and the much-rumored Bette Kane? Would Bruce Wayne really like Zorro and rock and roll? Did Jada Pinkett Smith's revelation that she brought a man on a leath to her Fish Mooney audition make you like her character more than you already did? Sound off in the comments below—but just know the comments will be full of spoilers, so beware.Read More

Want to know where the term "computer bug" came from?
Okay friends I DON’T KNOW IF YOU’RE PREPARED for the badness of a certain GRACE MURRAY HOPPER. Oh, wait, sorry, REAR ADMIRAL Grace Murray Hopper. YEAH. It's about to get REAL.Read More
No loafing around in this game.
Bossa Studios has announced the newest creation from their latest game jam (heh), I Am Bread, where, well... you're bread. Described as "[t]he beautiful story of one slice of bread's epic and emotional journey as it embarks upon a quest to become toasted," it looks like the perfect mix of Catlateral Damage and Octodad: Dadliest Catch. But what else would you expect from the same people who brought you Surgeon Simulator?Read More
Stop trying to make Google Glass happen.
Google got super-wicked-cool artist FKA twigs to star in and direct this "concept film" showing off Google Glass and what it can do. Google Glass is both featured in and used to create the film. Which, yeah, no one's ever used Google Glass to create a wacky art film before, so that's cool. But also, will Google Glass ever be cool? Not even FKA twigs can make it look cool, and she's, like, the coolest person on the planet right now.Read More
Remember Baywatch: Hawaii, guys?
Are you guys as excited as I am that Ronon Dex is returning to Atlantis? After DC announced their new film slate for the next six years, they also confirmed that Jason Momoa would be their Aquaman. Now, Momoa has some things to say about the endlessly-maligned character to which he will no doubt bring the excellence.Read More
Almost as nonsensical as Catwoman in high heels!
Our Editor in Chief Jill Pantozzi loved Alien: Isolation, but it (and I quote) "scared the shit out of her." Since I am a little horror movie baby and would never sleep again if I played it, I am seriously comforted by Neebs Gaming's terror-proof addition to Alien: Isolation - just throw really squeaky shoes on the alien. Problem solved. Fear neutralized.Read More
Oh dear Clooney no!
The fifth season of Game of Thrones is well into shooting at Spain's Alcázar of Seville, and this week brings us our first glimpse of the wicked-awesome Sand Snakes and oh my gosh is that nipples on their boob armor?! Who allowed this?!Read More
Yes, P. Jax, it is possible.
It's 33,000ish seconds shorter than the Peter Jackson version, and it includes (pretty much) no Tauriel. Make of that what you will. If you want to marathon the cinematic-length version, you can do so when Battle of the Five Armies comes out on December 17th.Read More
C is for crank turning.
The writers on Sesame Street know how to do pop culture parody right, but they also know a thing or two about teaching tiny science, too. On a recent episode of the show, Murray and Ovejita hang out with a kinetic artist at the Liberty Science Center and learn all about the epicness of the Rube Goldberg machine.Read More
What a bunch of a-holes!
Hey guys, want to hit up the movies this weekend and see Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team? I hear it isn't funny at all!Read More
