The Flash Used A Formerly Lame Villain To Make A Nearly Perfect Episode

If you don't know the lesser Flash villain the Pied Piper, you may not understand what an achievement last night's episode of The Flash was. Basically, it not only turned on of the Flash's least intimidating foes into an instantly compelling character — but it also delivered The Flash's greatest episode yet. » 1/28/15 10:30am Yesterday 10:30am

Danger 5's Parody Of 1980s High School Movies Is Both Absurd And Spot-On

At long last, a new season of the insane spies-vs-Hitler show Danger 5 has started airing in Australia. We brought you a sneak peek a month ago, but now the first four episodes are on YouTube in their entirety. Here's our favorite: a totally perfect (and yet nonsensical) spoof of 80s high-school movies. » 1/27/15 7:00pm Tuesday 7:00pm

A Clip That Shows Why The Originals Is Amazing PhD Dissertation Fodder

Seriously, some media studies grad student somewhere has to be writing a thesis about race, gender and politics in vampire media — and she or he must be just drooling over The Originals right now. Just watch this clip, in which Marcel turns a segregated World War I unit into vampires, and see for yourself. » 1/27/15 4:40pm Tuesday 4:40pm

Kill La Kill Is Coming To Toonami, Everybody Get Naked And Party

The spiritual successor to the beloved anime series Gurren Lagann, Kill La Kill will make its U.S. television debut at 12:30 p.m. on February 7th! Given how saucy the show is — that's main character in her battle outfit, and that's not even mentioning the show's revolutionary nudists — this is just a touch insane. » 1/27/15 3:00pm Tuesday 3:00pm

Jim Gordon Isn't The Hero Gotham Needs, Just The Idiot It Deserves

Gotham is getting worse. I don't mean the city; even though it has increased its Noble Cop quotient by +1 with Jim Gordon's arrival, it seems to be just as messed up as it was before he arrived. No, I mean the show, and the most obvious example is the way Gordon is somehow turning dumber every episode. » 1/27/15 8:27am Tuesday 8:27am

Jon Pertwee's TARDIS Is Looking Much The Worse For Wear

Apparently this is the actual TARDIS prop used by Doctor Who back in the Jon Pertwee era — which seems believable, since it was pretty battered-looking back in 1971 and the intervening decades probably haven't been kind. Makes me kind of nostalgic for the days when the TARDIS was less imposing and shiny. » 1/27/15 4:04am Tuesday 4:04am

This Is Probably The Most Beautiful Doctor Who Artwork Ever Created

Doctor Who has given rise to tons of incredible artwork, from Chris Achilleos' book covers to Dave Gibbons' comics to Bill Mudron's art nouveau painting. But for my money, the best Who art of all time is probably the Dalek comic strip that was published in the mid-1960s in Century 21 magazine. And it's all on Flickr. » 1/26/15 4:00pm Monday 4:00pm

Did Gotham Just Invent The Worst Supervillain Name In History? (Yes!)

Because Gotham really has no idea what to do as a show other than keep adding "early" versions of Batman's rogues gallery, they've cast Colm Feore as the villainous Dollmaker. But it's the Dollmaker's "real" name — not from the comics, but one the show has thought up itself — that will drive you as mad as the Joker. » 1/26/15 2:23pm Monday 2:23pm

This Week's TV: Felicia Day Returns From The Land Of Oz—And She's Mean

Before we settle in to watch the Superbowl (or the Puppy Bowl), we've got a whole week of TV to enjoy. Felicia Day's Charlie is back on Supernatural, and my has she changed. Someone on Sleepy Hollow has a demonic parent figure to deal with and the Mythbusters recreate a level of Doom in real life. » 1/26/15 9:00am Monday 9:00am
