  1. Archie Vs. Sharknado Crossover Event Proves There’s No Limit to How Ridiculous the World Can Get

    It's a "shark-tacular." No, really. That's what Syfy and Archie Comics are calling it. The puns, THEY BURN.

    I'll admit it. I went to a Sharknado viewing party, complete with shark cupcakes and a drinking game. But the Sharknado franchise has just hit maximum ridiculousness. Dare I say...it's jumped the shark?

  6. Marvel’s Daredevil Painfully Highlights Netflix’s Lack of Accessibility for the Blind

    Much like closed captions exist to allow the deaf to enjoy TV and movies alongside the hearing, the blind have descriptive narration—sometimes. As great as an audio track that describes on-screen action for those who can't see it is, it's not nearly as widespread as captions, and it's completely missing from Netflix streaming.
