The Most Ill-Advised Continuations of Classic Science Fiction and Fantasy TV Shows

The X-Files, Heroes and Twin Peaks are all coming back to our screens soon, with at least some of the original castmembers returning. Sounds great—except that this sort of thing doesn’t always work out. Here are the most ignominious examples of classic TV shows that were reanimated...but they came back wrong. » 8/31/15 1:22pm 7 minutes ago

Hannibal Bids a Gorgeously Gory Farewell That Offers Few Surprises, But Plenty of Satisfaction

The dreaded moment has arrived: Hannibal as we know it is no more. At its heart, the show’s always been about the complex (to put it mildly) relationship between Will and Hannibal; necessarily, the finale digs deep into TV’s most fraught twosome ... along with serving up buckets of stomach-roiling gore. » 8/31/15 1:20pm 9 minutes ago

Ashley Madison Code Shows More Women, and More Bots

After searching through the Ashley Madison database and private email last week, I reported that there might be roughly 12,000 real women active on Ashley Madison. Now, after looking at the company’s source code, it’s clear that I arrived at that low number based in part on a misunderstanding of the evidence. Equally… » 8/31/15 1:05pm 24 minutes ago

The 30 Most Disturbing Beanie Babies Ever Made

Collecting Beanie Babies was once the craze to end all collector’s crazes. Somehow, the company Ty turned cheap, tiny, plush animal dolls into a billion dollar industry where people were practically killing each other to get all the new releases. But as Ty ramped up production to meet demand, some Beanie Babies were… » 8/31/15 11:25am Today 11:25am

The New Mecha-Batman Now Has A Mecha-Joker To Fight

Batman’s been through a few changes in DC’s comics recently. First off, he’s no longer Bruce Wayne, but Jim Gordon. Secondly, he’s now a giant, Jim-Gordon-piloted Mech Suit. That’s all well and good for Batman fighting normal criminals, but now he needs some villains to go robot-toe-to-robot-toe with. Behold, ROBO… » 8/31/15 11:20am Today 11:20am

Metal Gear Solid Is One Of The Most Fascinating Science Fiction Stories in Any Medium

Metal Gear Solid is an obsession for millions of gamers, with its totally insane science-fiction storytelling. But at its heart, the series has always been about celebrating and questioning the power of technology. The story of Solid Snake, Raiden, and Snake’s evil dad Big Boss (it’s... a long story) isn’t just… » 8/31/15 10:24am Today 10:24am

Last Night’s Falling Skies Finale Actually Depressed The Hell Out of Me

The human race is doomed. That’s what I take away from the final episode of Falling Skies, in which the human race is saved in such a slapdash and unconvincing manner, you sense that everyone concerned felt as though humanity actually deserves to perish. God, this show. What the hell happened? » 8/31/15 10:05am Today 10:05am

Fear the Walking Dead Shows a Flicker of Life, But Still Disappoints

The second episode of a new series is crucial in establishing the show’s identity. It’s the first real episode, in a way, and a good one is usually a great sign. For Fear the Walking Dead, episode two is definitely an improvement over the pilot, but improvement doesn’t mean it’s great. » 8/31/15 8:00am Today 8:00am
