With its utter refusal to even approach traditional Batman canon, Gotham has always been entertainingly bizarre. But season four was a cavalcade of craziness that would even give the Joker pause—or Jokers, rather. If you don’t watch this delightfully bonkers show, here’s all the madness you missed.
Prostitution, drug use, murder, and more, all from the DNA of Sesame Street and The Muppets. Ladies and gentleman, hold on to your childhoods, this is The Happytime Murders.
It’s Take Your Kids to Work Day, and even the US government has time to “edutaine” some tots. The Department of Defense brought Captain America to the podium for a press conference, where he came face-to-face with an intrepid group of young reporters. Time to theorize about what Steve Rogers is helping the government…
Audiences don’t go see a movie like Rampage for things like “logic.” They go to see big monsters destroy things, and Rampage certainly delivers on that promise. However, speaking about logic, or lack thereof, in a movie like Rampage can often times be just as fun as the mindless spectacle. So let’s have some fun.
A sleepwear company has announced that the red version of its popular lingerie line has been given the name “Offred.” Because when I think of a romantic evening at home, I picture government-sanctioned sexual slavery.
Last night during a Reddit AMA, Westworld co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan made a bold statement: in an attempt to stop spoilers from ruining fans enjoyment of the show’s upcoming second season, the creative team would release a video detailing the entire plot of the season to select fans. The video is here and... it’s…
Look out, Belfast. A town near Boise, Idaho is about to be the next hot destination for Game of Thrones fans. It’s getting two residential streets named after the show’s characters, and several more could be on the way.
Star Wars toy collectors have been keeping a close eye on a special crowdfunding project over the past few weeks. It’s by none other than Hasbro and it’s for a giant (two feet long and over a foot high and wide) replica of Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge from Return of the Jedi. The hope was that 5,000 people would pledge…
Well here’s something you don’t see everyday: a bag containing 27 pairs of human hands. The grisly discovery was made on a river island near the Siberian city of Khabarovsk, and local police are now investigating.
It’s no secret that blockbuster movies rarely get a lot of love on Oscar night. So, this year, producers tried to remedy that by hiring comedy songwriters the Lonely Island to tackle the subject. However, the resulting idea was deemed “financially and logistically impossible” and cut from the show.
Rian Johnson is more than happy to do what Chewbacca couldn’t: Devour a porg.
Imagine an animal that can reproduce at a rate not unlike Star Trek’s classic Tribbles—because it’s actually cloning itself. This stranger-than-fiction monstrosity is worse than a scifi horror, because it’s entirely real.
No joke. I waited 31 hours to buy a painting. The above painting, in fact, of an X-Wing fighter. But when I started waiting, I didn’t know this was what I was going to buy. I just knew I wanted to buy... something. It’s the result of a sick and twisted obsession that I’ve documented before, but never quite like this.
It’s a song of ice and mathematics.
Justin, sweetie, what are you doing? I thought you were going country, bro. Then I could be content to ignore you. Instead, you come out with this cheap I, Robot knockoff that’s just scifi enough to pique my interest. Only it’s bad.

A few weeks ago, Columbia Sportswear announced a high-end, limited edition line of jackets based on The Empire Strikes Back. They sold out instantly.

The Fantastic Beasts franchise has had its own beast to contend with, after the controversial decision to keep Johnny Depp as the series’ antagonist after allegations of domestic abuse from his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard. A few weeks ago, director David Yates decided victim-blaming was his way to respond to the…
Star Wars statistics, admittedly, can be kind of boring—that is, unless they’re so batshit that you wonder what the hell is even happening. According to this latest gem of a survey, not only is Jar Jar Binks more popular than Kylo Ren but apparently, people prefer a giant slug monster over literally every character in…
Luke Skywalker is clearly in a rough place going into The Last Jedi. His new Jedi Order is gone. His nephew has fallen to the Dark Side. He doesn’t know it yet, but one of his best friends has perished. And then some random kid’s shown up on his island with his old lightsaber! But all that’s nothing compared to the…
