In 2009, Charles Lindbergh would have been 89 years old. Carl would have to be quite a bit younger to have idolized Muntz when he was a kid, but there’s still room there for both of them to be crotchety old men at the same time.

At the time of its release, my primary experience with Avatar was seeing an episode of Bones where the b-plot was basically a 15 minute commercial for this movie, where the nerdy side characters were camped outside a theater for weeks to get tickets, which was both played for laughs (“haw haw, the nerds are passionate Read more

No, it’s in honor of the network’s founder and original CEO, Mr. Hieronymus Buford Osgood Maxington (“HBO Max” to his friends) whose descent into homicidal madness back in the late 80's was the inspiration for the series finale of Game of Thrones.

But what does the plus stand for, if not softcore porn? This question applies to Disney as well.

You’re not wrong (it would basically be what they did in the comics, just reversed) but Wandavision always felt like the wrong place for that. It was telling a story based on what we already knew about Wanda’s history (which was already convoluted WITHOUT retcons) it didn’t need to add anything more to it, and I’m Read more

Even if you ignore all the stupid memes, Pickle Rick is the worst episode of the entire series. Yes, even worse than the Slut Dragons or the 37 different tedious genre parodies they did last season.

I’m willing to bet that if MST3K were invented today, it WOULD be made for Youtube.

Well, since we’re nitpicking lines from “Bart the Fink,” I’ll just point out how that episode happens to contain one of the first GPS jokes in television history! (not that it impacts Steamed Hams at all, as Skinner wasn’t involved in the gag.)

The hilarious thing is that if you go to Tumblr, the fact that Verizon lost millions on the site is one of the user base’s favorite running gags (partly because everyone agrees that Verizon sucks, and partly because it’s just funny.) If someone makes a stupid post, a common reply is “this is why this site is worth Read more

Craig McCracken is just terrific for capturing that 50's and 60's genre fiction aesthetic and doing something new with it. If you haven’t seen his show Kid Cosmic on Netflix, it channels that same energy, but puts its own spin on it.

Not all mediums translate equally. Comics and cartoons are both a series of sequential drawings arranged together to produce a narrative, so of course it’s easier to adapt comics to cartoons than it is to adapt cartoons to live action. There’s a ton more overlap in technique and it’s much easier to carry over style, Read more

There’s a good chance that this is the last Steven Universe animation we’ll ever see, and honestly, there’s no better way to go out than with a message of compassion that also reminds us how awesome Greg is. Read more

Bitcoin at least has a practical use to it. Divorce it from being a commodity and you can still buy and sell stuff with it. Which means that if nothing else, Bitcoin always has the potential to go up in price based on how many people are using it for its actual purpose.

Well, their focus is on encouraging positive portrayals of LGBT people in media, so the awards are a way of doing that.

I think it’s less that it’s “black-sounding” and more that no one else in the cast was asked to spout a catchphrase. Every character on the team has at least one catchphrase from an old cartoon that could have been shoehorned in, but only Cyborg was pressured to do so. It’s especially weird because Whedon tends to Read more
