Thirty-eight years after it should’ve first aired, Douglas Adams’ last Doctor Who story, “Shada,” is finally complete. Was it worth a nearly four-decade wait? It’s hard to say. Because without that legacy of mystery to propel it, “Shada” would never really have become more than the sum of its otherwise rather average…
Sesame Street’s parodies have always been delightful, but the show’s riff on Stranger Things is honestly some next-level awesomeness.
Nowadays, there’s only one group of kids that aren’t into superheroes: kids who aren’t into superheroes yet. There’s a tender age right before they realize that Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, and the rest are completely dominating pop culture... so why wait on them? These fun gift ideas will help (super-)speed up the…
Netflix’s rebooted Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return kept in tradition this year with a Thanksgiving marathon that just so happened to include a bit of good news for fans.
James Gunn discusses the possibility of Adam Warlock’s arrival in Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3. Even more flashbacks are being hinted at for Avengers 4. Rian Johnson teases where he’s at for his new Star Wars trilogy. Plus, new pictures from Agents of SHIELD’s return, and a Flash episode gets a delightfully revealing…
Today is not just Thanksgiving in America, but also Doctor Who’s 54th anniversary. That means while the U.S. has spent its day cramming Turkey into its collective self, well wishes of many happy returns have been sent to one of the U.K.’s most venerable scifi shows. Naturally, Tom Baker’s the best, by the virtue of…
Dolly the Sheep made biotech history in 1996 when she became the first animal cloned from adult somatic cells. She lived to the age of seven, which is young for sheep, leading scientists to speculate that her premature death had something to do with her being a clone. New research now shows this wasn’t the case.
At some point or another, we were all bitten by the Star Wars bug—er—sandflea. We were dragged to a theater by a cool uncle, handed an N64 controller to play Star Wars Episode I: Pod Racer (let’s be kind to those whose first exposure may not have been the original trilogy), or just caught a marathon over Thanksgiving…
There are, apparently, two things on this Earth (on multiple Earths, technically) that can unite the disparate heroes of the CW/DC universe. The first is socially obligated wedding appearances. The other? Fighting alternate-universe Nazis.
Every year, NASA’s Operation Icebridge plumbs the wonders and woes of the ice at both poles, and 2017 is no different. Icebridge’s Antarctic field mission kicked off about a month ago, and satellites and planes are hard at work monitoring glaciers, ice sheets, and sea ice.
Chewbacca, how dare you.
The real world is... well, you know. And at some point or another we all need a break from it. Helping your loved ones transport themselves to an entirely different realm is a gift just about anyone would enjoying receiving this holiday season, and these gifts are just the ticket.
It’s easy to look at Blade Runner 2049’s stunning use of shadow and light and declare it a part of the scifi noir genre. But it’s really the film’s narrative and thematic execution that grounds it in the longstanding noir storytelling tradition.
Thanksgiving will never be the same for families in Flint, Michigan, the city that made national news in 2015 for its lead-contaminated drinking water. Mae Collins, 50, is no exception. Her annual family tradition has changed drastically since 2014, when city officials switched the city’s drinking water source to the…

Science would probably progress a whole lot slower without the infinite human imagination. We talk frequently about times that science fiction has predicted coming science advances. But this time, the National Science Foundation has let its scientists do the imagining.
The Superman we’ve seen in DC’s movie universe has been...let’s say controversial at times. It’s a characterization that has been built more around the character’s power, and reactions to that power, than the ideals he champions. But after Justice League, Henry Cavill thinks its time for a Superman story that leans…
It’s been a very good year for fans of Neil Gaiman. American Gods was excellent, there’s Good Omens on the way, and now another of his works is being brought to life on radio: his 2005 fantasy novel Anansi Boys.
