Martin could even come up with something so imaginative on his own. Of course, as we know, that’s not the case. Game of Thrones is heavily influenced by real life…
Wait, there was a Wolverine on screen before Hugh Jackman? No one is really sure. Hugh Jackman’s dominance of the character in the movies makes this evolution of Wolverine video from Burger Fiction seem like a look into how well he’s aged and how buff he’s gotten. But we also get to see the cartoon character we all…
NBC’s spent two years changing its mind about the modern Wizard of Oz show Emerald City. But if the show’s as great as this photo of Florence Kasumba as the Wicked Witch of the East, then it will totally be worth it.
Because we’re all so sensitive these days: SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t watched some TV shows like Breaking Bad or The Wire or Lost or Sons of Anarchy or Friends, watch out, because you’ll see what the first frame was in the series premiere and what the last frame was in the series finale. If you have seen the shows…
The dedicated fun adversaries at One Million Moms are back with a new campaign, this one aimed at making Satan less hot. They’re outraged that the new Fox show Lucifer makes the Dark Lord look like a “likable guy” who’s “cool and irresistible to women.” Kind of like how these campaigns make the TV shows they’re…
Spring is just around the corner and as we’re all counting down the days until we can set our clocks back to “not stupid time,” Netflix is rolling out a bunch of original content, including the next season of House of Cards, Daredevil, and the original movie, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.

This is God’s work. Or at the very least, the work of a Grand Maester. Joeltronics made this very useful graph that shows which episode of Game of Thrones the TV show corresponds to which chapter and which book in the A Song of Ice and Fire books (aka the Game of Thrones books). That way you know what’s been shown…

Hello my CyberHeads! Who wants to go to Six Flags? Not me. This episode has instilled a very deep and likely wholly unreasonable fear of Hacked Rollercoaster Murder in my heart.
Not ready to let go of Breaking Bad? You don’t have to with this insanely cool timelapse pilgrimage to the show’s most iconic filming locations.
