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. »
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. »
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… »
Ankylosaurs are common features on documentaries or animated films about dinosaurs. Their armored body and club-like tail make them easy to identify. But how did that tail actually evolve? Evolutionary biologists show us the “first draft” of a popular dinosaur. »

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… »
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… »
The Templars have gained a formidable reputation, thanks to years of appearances in genre stories. They tend to be a convenient Secret Underground Order whenever someone needs to fight (or be helped by) a Secret Underground Order. But what were they really? And who wiped them out?
Which would come out on top in a duel, a lightsaber or the Sword of Gryffindor? This is the mindbending question posed by theRadioTimes (via Ask Science Fiction). As Harry Potter’s Sword pulls in whatever makes it stronger and Star Wars’ lightsaber is crystal-focused energy, what happens when they meet? »
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… »
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? »
