    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    Well that would have been interesting.

  2. Netflix, Arrested Development, and the Growing Prevalence of Binge-Watching

    In a lot of ways, Netflix is changing television.

    The concept of watching a bunch of episodes of a TV show at once is either called 'binge-watching' or 'marathoning' the show. Those terms describe two ways of looking at something that's becoming increasingly common thanks to DVDs, DVRs, and online streaming. Is it a binge? An ugly, messy, yet addictive experience in consumption? Or is it a marathon? A long, arduous undertaking that you're proud of afterward? Netflix arguably shifted things further towards marathoning with the release of Arrested Development.

  3. Nearly Three Years Later, It’s Finally Time to Understand Lost

    It's been nearly three years since we last loved, hated, and argued with our moms about Lost, but all that time still hasn't let the various plots and implications of the story sink in. Thanks to Santiago Ortiz, we have this interactive guide, complete with detailed map and index, of everything we could possibly want to know about Lost, and how it all relates to each other.

  4. LOST Makes More Sense as a Point-and-Click Adventure Game

    Somewhere, in an alternate universe, J.J. Abrams doesn't make TV shows. He makes video games instead. There are definitely some things that our doplegangers are missing out on... (Zach Snyder tries to reboot Star Trek. Yikes.) It's not all bad, though: In the world where J.J. Abrams makes video games, then Lost obviously replaces The Secret of Monkey Island as the pinnacle of point-and-click adventure games.

  5. Guillermo Del Toro Heads to Cable with Viral Vampire Series

    Bloody Good Fun

    If, like us, you've grown more than weary of the romantic vampires swarming pop culture, and long for something with a bit more, erm, bite, we have some good news. Monster master Guillermo del Toro is bringing his book trilogy The Strain to the small screen, thanks to FX and Lost producer Carlton Cuse. We are pretty excited to see some respectable splatter returned to the now-sparkly genre. Del Toro, an avid fan of all things that go bump in the night (and some of the things that bump back), had explained his interest in vampires at length in an article for the NYTime in 2009.

  6. Psycho Prequel TV Series Has Cast Norman Bates’ Mother

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    In a year of two behind-the-scenes Alfred Hitchcock projects, a new contendor as emerged. It's a new drama series from A&E called Bates Motel that explores the relationship between Norman Bates and his mother...Norma. Does anyone want this?

  7. Things We Saw Today: A Nerdy Proposal at GeekGirlCon

    Things We Saw Today

    We're major sucker for con proposals. This weekend at Geek Girl Con (which our own Susana and Jill attended), it was Cierra, who proposed to her boyfriend (now fiancé) Gahan. She proposed with a custom Magic: The Gathering “Rings Of Brightearth” card, the bottom of which said "Will you Marry Me?" (When Geeks Wed)

  8. Writers Chosen For Y: The Last Man Film From A Comic Book TV Show

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Writer Brian K. Vaughan has had great success in Hollywood writing and producing for Lost, and although he just returned to comics this week with a new series called Saga with artist Fiona Staples, it's some of his other comic work getting attention today. Vaughan's hit series Y: The Last Man, which we knew was eventually getting made into a film, now has writers attached from another comic book TV show.

  9. Things We Saw Today: The R2-D2 Birdhouse

    Things We Saw Today

    This is what happens when R2 is stationed on the roof of things: birds. Over at Etsy store NirdHaus, there are tons more geek-themed birdhouses, because someone had to make geek-themed birdhouses, and we're glad it's NirdHaus. (via Neatorama)

  10. The 14 Geekiest Beers the Free Market Has to Offer

    The history of beer is almost as old as human history, and it would be quite true to say that our love affair with the stuff has only grown with modern brewing practices. Given beer's pervasive place in human history, it's not surprising that the geeky pastimes of drinkers would eventually rub off on the beers themselves. The result is a veritable cornucopia of nerdy beers, from Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and a few others that fit in quite nicely with your nerdy lifestyle. Like Pizza Beer -- it's more efficient than eating both separately! So sit back, crack open a cold one, and enjoy this astounding and some times mouthwatering collection.
