In a disheartening (but perhaps not surprising) turn of events, it would seem that Bryan Fuller will no longer be the showrunner of Star Trek: Discovery.
Artist Nacho Diaz believes that many villains would be different people if they got some love. And… that’s a pretty fair assessment for most of them. So he decided to have the heroes in their stories give them great big hugs! And the result is adorable.
For real, it’s unbearably cute.
Dracula is largely credited as the progenitor of all modern vampire fiction… but it would seem that Bram Stoker himself owes a debt to a book about a vampire named Carmilla.
On this very day, Wonder Woman turns 75 years old! Which is an amazing landmark all in itself, for all that she means to the superhero genre, and to women the world over. In fact, the United Nations has named October 21st Wonder Woman Day–so if you’re looking for a reason to celebrate, you now have a pretty great one. Raise a glass to a character who is strength, wisdom, and kindness incarnate because we are truly lucky to have her.
But don’t stop there–because Diana also happens to have the same birthday as two more incredible women.
Rocky Horror Picture Show is a strange masterpiece. But can you improve on a masterpiece, particularly one that is such a product of its time? Can you update its themes, can you extract its meaning and polish it anew?
Doesn’t look like it.
Composer Vangelis may have won an Academy Award for the soundtrack to Chariots of Fire, but all SFF fans know him best for his scores to Blade Runner and Carl Sagan’s Cosmos.
If you’re one of those fans, then it’s a great day to be you–because Vangelis has a brand new album out that you won’t want to miss.
It’s the age-old problem–“But if I go back in time and accidentally kill my grandpa, then how could I have time traveled in the first place?”
Or, well, it’s an age-old problem for fans of time travel fiction. Lucky for us, computers can fix everything. Well, the answer to the infamous Grandfather Paradox at least.
Hobbits live the good life: they eat all day, they generally work with their hands and enjoy nature (unless they are wealthy and don’t work at all), and they live in an idyllic farmscape full of lush trees, rivers, and green hills. They also consume their fair share of ale in taverns, an ode to the pub culture that J.R.R. Tolkien himself heralded from.
But how much can a hobbit actually drink?
All right, Planeteers! Ready to save the world from the evils of pollution? Good thing because Captain Planet is back! Maybe.
Don’t you ever wonder why so many Federation starships in Star Trek suffer weirdly-timed meltdowns? Sure, it’s television, but shouldn’t there be a real reason for all the shenanigans? For all that really weird engineering?
There is. And that reason is simple–humans are ridiculous. And wonderful. But also ridiculous.
Back when the 1966 Batman television series (starring Adam West and Burt Ward) was in development, illustrator A. Leslie Thomas drew up concept art for the show and it was gorgeous. Thanks to batgirlbat-trap.com, we can get a glimpse of some of these images and see how Thomas’s artwork shaped the show.
If you’re American and a science fiction fan, a radio fan, or a cinephile, you probably know the story about Orson Welles’s radio production of HG Wells’s The War of the Worlds.
But did you know that the two of them got on the radio together to talk about it?
Fans at New York Comic Con were lucky enough to get a sneak peak at the pilot episode of BBC America’s upcoming series, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Based on the book series by Douglas Adams, Dirk Gently is a spin on your average cop show—
—that’s a lie, it is nothing like your average cop show. It is staggeringly fun, however, and an exciting addition to the BBCA lineup.
At New York Comic Con, fans were treated to their first sight of the The Defenders as Finn Jones, Mike Colter, Krysten Ritter, Charlie Cox, and Jon Bernthal all took the stage together. But that’s not all the panel had in store…
