How 'Star Trek: Discovery' Just Might Save Trek — And Possibly Even TV Itself
It’s a good time to be a Star Trek fan. We’re in the middle of what feels like a Trek Renaissance, with the franchise enjoying a popularity it hasn’t since The Next Generation’s heyday in the '90s, thanks to the big-budget movies on the big screen - and a new series just over the horizon in 2017.
Alien Crew Members And Rogue Holodecks: This Is What 'Star Trek: Discovery' Should Take From 'The Animated Series'
Rev up those warp engines, crew, because #StarTrek is almost back. Until now we Trekkies have gotten our big-screen fix from the reboot movies, but we haven't had a TV Trek since the last series, Star Trek: Enterprise, ended in 2005. But we won't have to wait much longer.
For Every Broken Bastard (That's All Of Us) 'BoJack Horseman' Is The Best Thing On TV
You wouldn’t think that one of the cleverest, most sharply self-aware and emotionally intense TV shows currently airing would center around a cast of Funny Talking Animal People and their zany Hollywoo - that’s this alternate universe Hollywood - hijinks, but that’s exactly what we have in BoJack Horseman. It's as entertaining as it is absolutely brutal. It pulls precisely zero punches, and when the devastation hits, it kicks like a horse. Sure, it's painful, but it hurts so good.
Touching The Sky: The True Story Of Eddie The Eagle
We need more people like Michael "Eddie The Eagle" Edwards. And more movies like this one that tells the story of how he made it to the 1988 Winter Olympics as the first British ski jumper, becoming an overnight sensation.
Ah, Korrasami! Cosplayers Are Such A Gift. (Young Ladies, You Rocked Us!)
The only thing better than seeing amazing cosplay of your favorite characters? Two of them. Together. Your favorite ship. Group or couples cosplay, when it's done right, can be one of the highlights of any convention - like this pair of dedicated fans who rocked AnimeExpo 2016 as Avatar Korra and Asami Sato from Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra.
This Wonderfully Wicked 'Hollywood Devil' Should Be Our Next Big Movie Monster
You might remember master of makeup and special effects Josef Rarach of Prague's Studio FX from his morbidly gorgeous Zombie King creation. The first time he rocked our world, his Steampunk Zombie makeup and prosthetic project at Zombiewalk Prague 2014 scared the hell out of us — and went totally viral.
Disney's 'Gargoyles' Needs A Movie — And This Concept Artist Just Showed Us How Awesome It Could Be
You might remember me making the geek-tacularly passionate case that Disney's Gargoyles, cult-classic animated series from the '90s totally deserves its own movie. After all, a lot of you agreed. There are a lot of ways to adapt the story of our stone-by-day warriors-by-night heroes, and make it amazing.
Winning At Fandom At Any Age: The Cosplay Parents
This retired couple, now cosplaying our favorite fictional duos, prove you're never too grown up to do what you love. It's a dog-eat-dog world, right? You're an adult now. Being an adult means letting things go. And the first things to go are silly hobbies like geeking out over your beloved fandoms, going to conventions — or dressing up like your favorite characters! It's sad, but if you're ever going to be a productive member of society, you're just going to have to.
By The Goddess! This Wonder Woman Cosplay Might Be Sent From Heaven!
They say we're all Wonder Women, and it's true. Some of us just wear the costumes a little more obviously than others. Some of us go on epic quests to gather the materials, painstakingly handcraft the garments ourselves, don them, and strike heroic poses. (We call this "cosplay!") Some of us even have swords. Let me introduce you to one such warrior.
