Man, last night’s episode of The Flash was fun. “Welcome to Earth-2" sent Barry and Cisco to a parallel world where Barry is a nerd in tweed, Joe West is a lounge singer, and TVs are vertical instead of horizontal. (Madness!) And yet the most amazing change is that it turned Earth-1’s Flash into an imbecile and an…
Another nail in Flash’s coffin: Google has announced that it’s going to stop supporting the plugin in its pervasive AdWords and DoubleClick advertizing services. Instead, companies will have to use HTML5.
This year is full of great science fiction and fantasy TV series. Actually, 2016 is too full. Seriously, check out how long this list of new, returning and potentially premiering shows due out over the next 12 months is. When are we going to get a chance to leave the house and watch all those great movies, or read all…
Wives and girlfriends of superheroes aren’t as hard-done-by as parents of superheros, but they’re a close second. Not only do they inevitably have a rough time, but everybody (including fans) hate them—which is no surprise. Each superhero girlfriend has a large number of factors working against her.
This year’s genre television gave us high highs and low lows—sometimes on the same show! In no particular order, we’ve rounded up the year’s best moments, along with some of the absolute worst. SPOILERS AHEAD.
It’s starting to be the saddest time of year. This fall saw a slew of new TV shows, but nowadays there’s just too much television to keep track of. And as winter comes, fall TV shows get mown down like wheat. Sometimes, cancelation is a mercy. But here are 11 shows that died just as they found their feet.
This is strange news. It’s not bad, necessarily, that Warner Bros. has decided to let Pride & Prejudice & Zombies book author and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter novelist and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith to make his directorial debut with The Flash movie... but it does seem strange.
Whether it’s a music clip on YouTube, a Flash ad on a news site or the latest viral sensation on Facebook, most videos you come across on today’s web want to get going without any input from you—and that can cause problems with bandwidth as well as audio output you weren’t expecting. Here’s how to tackle the issue in…
After months—if not years—of bellyaching over slow speeds and shaky stability, Google finally announced an array of improvements to Chrome that could improve the lives of millions. The company says the browser will now offer users “a faster and more efficient web.” Well, Google certainly couldn’t make it slower or…
Apparently the answer is pretty much never, despite the efforts of Apple, Google ... and now, Amazon.
In case you weren’t already aware that Flash is useless trash that you should disable immediately, consider the sad tale of last week’s malvertising attack on Yahoo.
The death of Flash continues apace: live video-streaming giant Twitch is the latest major player to ditch Flash video in favor of HTML5. It’s rolled out new HTML5 player controls to pave the way for a full handover to the video-streaming master race in the (hopefully near) future.
The Mozilla Firefox web browser now blocks Flash by default. And when I say “blocks,” I don’t mean it asks you nicely if you’d really like to use Flash. I don’t mean it automatically pauses Flash videos like Google Chrome. I mean Mozilla has decided that Flash is going down.
Legends Of Tomorrow isn’t due out until 2016 on The CW, but Entertainment Weekly has a cool glimpse of some concept art, and it looks exciting.
DC has refreshed its stable of comics once again, putting its characters in new situations— and most of them have gotten a new look to celebrate. But as usual with superhero makeovers, some are less successful than others. So we’re going to put on our fashion-hats and rate what’s hot and what’s not in the DC Universe!
Well, again, that is. Long ago DC Direct, before they were relaunched as the current DC Collectibles, made a series of 7” scale Justice League action figures based on the artwork of the iconic comic book artist Alex Ross. Missed out the first time? Good news! They’re back, with shiny new repaints in tow.
Despite both being big hits on The CW, it's taken a while for Arrow and The Flash to get some great toys (we're still waiting on that Felicity Smoak from Toy Fair!). Funko are stepping in to fill the void with some new figures based on the shows... but you might want to hold off on being excited for them.
You know Flash? Haven't thought about it in a while, have you. For good reason! It's less useful and less relevant than ever. It's worth thinking about it one last time though—as you go to disable it in your web browser. Here's how and why you should.
