They'll send you cult TV shows, the most nostalgic they can find.
You can't stream Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Netflix anymore, because they've moved onto bigger and better things—well, smaller and better. ...Or smaller and mostly the same, but free! Did I mention free?Read More
In the not-too-distant past, the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon was a staple of Thanksgiving TV for people who aren't interested in whether footballmen are touching down or something. Shout Factory and MST3K creator Joel Hodgson have brought the tradition back through the magic of the "Internet," and you can watch this year's six-episode edition live with Hodgson right starting at 12PM EST.Read More
Little horse, big nostalgia.
Before bronies, before pegasisters, before Weird Al and his cheese accordion cutie mark, there was the '80s My Little Pony series.

Remember ReBoot? That awesome Saturday morning cartoon show about the world within computers? You know, the one that made history because it was the first half-hour fully computer-animated television series? Remember how it was actually good, even including the horrifying series ending? Well, if you don't remember, or want to brush up on your ReBoot, the fine folks over at Shout! Factory supplied us with two sets of ReBoot Season 1 & 2 DVDs to give away to you, our loyal, obviously attractive readers, but there's a catch: The world of Mainframe was filled with physical manifestations of the bits and bobs within a computer. For instance, Bob is a Guardian, which basically translates to the system's antivirus or maintenance tool. Ray Tracer is a fella who surfed around the Net and the Web on a floating surf board, which translates to a search engine. So, if you want to win a totally alpha numeric ReBoot Season 1 & 2 DVD set, here's what you must do: How to Enter to Win: Create one character or place with a modern day computing staple and tell us how it'd fit into the world of ReBoot. What kind of person would Twitter, Facebook or Photoshop be? Would Foursquare be a villain? Would free-to-play MMOs be a slum? Would memes be fast food chains? Send us a few sentences following the above guidelines, we'll judge using our very advanced system of metrics and submetrics, and hopefully, you'll win! Post your entries on our Facebook page, pray to Phong and hope for the best.Read More
