The First and Last Frames of TV Shows Give Us All the Feels

In this video after the jump, you'll get the feels from several shows at once, as it shows you the first frame and last frame of some popular TV shows. *NOTE: I hadn't ever watched several of these shows, but didn't consider the images spoilers. Be that as it may, use your own judgement. Read no further if you don't want descriptions of the endings of Mad Men, Lost, or Breaking Bad*

Damon Lindelof Needs to Slow His Roll: The Difference Between Complaints and Criticism

Though I will defend the Lost finale TO THE DEATH.

I love Damon Lindelof. I loved Lost (yes, even the ending), I will always love his giving Wolverine a panda spirit guide, and while I stopped watching The Leftovers after the third episode because WTF, I'm going to give it another whirl. That said, Lindelof recently said something about people who stop watching shows that doesn't sit well with me as a writer, a critic, or as a person who reserves the right to like or not like whatever the hell I want.

Dorkly Presents The Best Fighting Game-Style Art, Including Some Real Fan-Made Games

Eat your heart out, Salty Bet.

Fighting games are very difficult to master, but I'd be okay with losing every single match I ever if it meant I got to play as Daenerys Targeryen, Princess Momonoke, or the Soup Nazi. Dorkly has more where that came from, including fanart, fan-made games, and even concept art for real games that never ended up getting made.

TV Stars Advocate for Safe Binge Watching in This Super-Serious PSA

Except Jim O'Heir. Damn it, Jerry.

Ladies and gentle-beings, there is a dangerous epidemic plaguing our Internet-surfing young people. It is called "binge-watching," and in addition to potentially shaving years off your life, it also makes Chris Pratt, Alyson Hannigan, and Kate Mulgrew sad. You don't want to make them sad, do you?

Gondor Calls For Neighs: Horse Versions of LOTR Characters and Other Geeky Favorites

Muster the Rohirrim!

Silverglass19 (aka Liz) on Deviantart is really, really good at drawing ponies. I'm not talking MLP style, either, though those also take a lot of skill most of us don't have -- I mean anatomically correct horses you feel like you could totally ride. Not that the heir to Isildur would let you just jump on his back all willy nilly, though. He would totally show you the meaning of "hell no" if you tried to pull that stunt.

Damon Lindelof Doesn’t Care What You Think About LOST’s Ending, Thanks to Breaking Bad

Hey, there are still people out there who liked the LOST finale! I think?

Earlier in the week, we told you that LOST creator Damon Lindelof had been receiving some pretty terrible hate in the wake of the widely-acclaimed Breaking Bad series finale. In a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof just wants you to know: he doesn't care what you think about the LOST finale any more. He. Is. Over it.

Breaking Bad Finale Makes Fans Remind Damon Lindelof How Much They Hated The LOST Finale

Not sure if he agrees, or just trolling.

Unless you live in an internet-less cavern (if so, how are you reading this, magical being?), you probably know that Breaking Bad ended last night. People were so pleased with the outcome of AMC's epic show that they celebrated in the best way the internet knows how: by hating on someone else. This time, it was LOST creator Damon Lindelof.

Damon Lindelof Basically Lied To ABC So They Would Pick Up LOST

"Oh, yeah, the smoke monster, totally going to be resolved in the first few episodes."

Love it or hate it, LOST was a game-changer in the world of television. Expensive to shoot, filmed in Hawaii, incredibly serialized, and often completely nonsensical, it's amazing that in the current TV landscape, a network looked at the premise for the show and said, "That's a great idea! Let's do it!" Well, as it turns out: that never happened.

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.

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.
