  1. Gene For Dementia Risk Might Make Carriers More Clever During Youth

    In news that makes us glad our memories are, as a team, pretty terrible, a team of researchers led by the University of Sussex has found evidence suggesting that a gene variant associated with dementia late in life is also associated with improved memory, math skills, and verbal abilities earlier in life. It's a troubling reminder that, sometimes, the candle that burns twice as bright really may burn half as long.

  2. Gossip Girl Creator Josh Schwartz Is Officially Threatening to Remake E4′s Misfits in America

    No. No no no no no no no. no.

    File this under Things That Must Be Stopped Immediately: Josh Schwartz, creator of shows including The O.C.CW's Gossip Girl, and NBC's Chuck, has apparently finalized plans to work with Misfits creator Howard Overman to develop an American version of the show. If you've ever seen the show, which airs on the E4 channel in the UK, you'd already know how horrible an idea this is. If you haven't, well, you know how well American remakes of British TV shows usually go. Are there exceptions? Absolutely. Will Misfits be one of them? Only if they can use that really dirty c-word. And let's see ... nope. We still cannot do that here. Great.

    Things We Saw Today

    Now that he is both a vampire hunter and a Ghostbuster, I like to pretend that Abraham Lincoln is President of the Dead People and benevolently leads them in the war against the Good Dead and the Evil Dead, emerging victorious when all can live with each other in eternal, spookyass harmony.

  5. Robert Sheehan Is Leaving Misfits

    Today in Depressing

    My dear fellow Misfits fans -- Nathan is leaving us! This weekend at Kapow, Misfits producer Petra Fried confirmed that Robert Sheehan, who plays Nathan, will not appear in the third season and will be replaced by a new character named Rudi. That role has yet to be cast, and a series of "farewells" to explain Nathan's absence will be posted on the E4 web site before the new season airs. Sheehan, whose career began in Ireland when he was 14, has been gaining popularity after some well-received film roles, namely Cherrybomb, which costarred Harry Potter's Rupert Grint, and Killing Bono. Stateside, he appeared in Season of the Witch and an episode of The Tudors. So, it's not surprising that he's ready to move on. If you haven't heard of the British series Misfits, it's about a bunch of twenty-somethings doing community service who gain superpowers after a weird storm. It's awesome, and it's been creeping over to the United States online (and maybe some bootlegs). You can watch all the episodes on a bunch of sites, like here or even YouTube. And now, why this is such depressing news.
