You may not be aware that io9 has something called the Observation Deck, which is pretty much the Open Thread that never sleeps. But the questions asked over there? They're getting answered right here. Well, some of them.
Well, I had to bring that image back once before the end of the year, right...? Last week, we asked who was the best new character of the last ten years, and your answers were... shiny, to say the least.
When Annalee shared her tale of how Star Trek changed her life on Wednesday, it paved the way for many other such recollections. Holster your snark phasers and see how Gene Rodenberry's creation affected lives.
For some, the emergence of real-life superheroes is proof that human nature isn't inherently selfish, but instead, noble. And for others, it's a sign that they should become supervillains. You people make me proud.
You can disagree with Charlie Jane's list of the 10 most disappointing sci-fi prequels all you want, but as soon as you try to convince me that Enterprise was good? That's where you lose me.
Fox pulls the last episode of Dollhouse and your reaction is... not what I expected. For all the people upset at Fox, there were probably more disappointed with Joss Whedon, weirdly (and fittingly) enough.
Are you a geek or a nerd? Or neither, thankyouverymuch? Austin Grossman's pondering about whether or not it's time to drop the term "nerd" on Friday prompted much discussion, and not just about Answer 5.
If I ever want to know just how dismissive io9 commenters can feel about (admittedly insanely anal) fanboy complaints, I now have a new favorite collection of examples: Star Trek's San Francisco Urban Planning post.
We don't usually use the power of Ourobouros for good, but this week, we're making an exception. Because, let's face it: If you can't allow commenters to educate us all, what use are they?
You are all very, very sick people. Annalee listens to you complaining about the Heroes recaps every week, asks if you want her to stop doing it, and you all say "Keep going"?
Friday's news that plans are apparently afoot for a movie based upon Glen Larson's original Battlestar Galactica series produced some opinions as unexpected as the news itself. There are really people who prefer the original?
Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the rumor that the Wachowskis may be rebooting the Superman movie franchise! And apparently, that's a lot of people's brand of cinematic kryptonite.
There are certain things that the io9 readership will put up with: snark, Annalee's kitten obsession, and my love of Clone Wars to name just a few. But the idea of Predator being remade? Nooooo.
Lost is back! Lost is back! Which can only mean one thing (Okay, it can mean many things, but I'm only interested in this one): Lynn returns with recaps, and you guys go nuts commenting.
I knew that I wasn't a fan of the news that Keanu is going to star in a live-action Cowboy Bebop, but you guys took it much, much worse than I did.
Who would've thought? Annalee does a post about why vampires have a reputation for being sex machines, and the comments get filled with people who eagerly begged to differ. And not one mentioned James Brown!
As a special New Year's gift to Meirelle, there was really only one candidate for this column this week: That moment when Annalee wished you all a Happy New Year, and the internet? She exploded.
During the first year of io9, we've reported stories both close to our hearts and far out in the universe, but one thing has remained constant: You always wrote. Here are our most commented posts.
