​Jon Snow Knows Nothing, Especially About Pompeii

For the record: Despite the Pompeii movie's tagline, there was plenty of warning, and there was also plenty of time to escape if you took the 48 hours of ash spewing from Vesuvius as, say, a warning of some kind. But yeah, other than that, no warning, no escape." » 5/19/14 2:40pm 5/19/14 2:40pm

​There's A Smaug Alert For This Week's Video Releases

Yeah, I know it's not pronounced that way. But it was either this or "It's the Desolation of This Week's DVD and Blu-ray releases!" and I thought this was the less awful of the two options. » 4/07/14 2:40pm 4/07/14 2:40pm

​The Gender-Flipping Martial Artist Who Created The US Anime Industry

It's hard to overstate importance of Ranma ½ to the U.S. anime fandom.

And now Ranma ½ is back,… » 3/24/14 2:40pm 3/24/14 2:40pm

​Relive the trauma of the Game of Thrones' Red Wedding all over again!

Kudos to HBO for this marketing campaign for the Game of Thrones season three set, which leads this week's home video releases.

​Holmes and Watson hit a gay bar in the Sherlock s3 you didn't see

If you watched the third season of Sherlock on PBS, you haven't seen the whole thing.

​The time Batman fought evil with the power of racism

Batman's had a pretty spectacular career, but even the Caped Crusader has a few moments he'd like to forget. Chief among them would probably be his first live-action excursion, a serial released in 1943 that featured Bats squaring off against a mad Japanese scientist/horrible stereotype.
