For Your Convenience, a Doctor Who Spoiler Discussion Zone

For Your Convenience, a Doctor Who Spoiler Discussion Zone

Doctor Who’s “Fugitive of the Judoon” has aired in the UK. For those of you who’ve watched, here’s your chance to discuss it! For those who haven’t, a big ol’ spoiler warning.

We will, of course, have our usual recap up tomorrow but considering the Doctor Who twitter account warned us something big was coming (bigger than the Master returning ???) we figured you might want a safe place to...

Leave Star Trek Alone, You Piece of Shit

Leave Star Trek Alone, You Piece of Shit

The similarities between Donald Trump’s newly revealed United States Space Force logo and the logo for Star Trek’s Starfleet are uncanny.

He’s made pop culture references plenty of times before but whoever “designed” this logo may be hearing from CBS or Paramount pretty soon.

Yes, while the Air Force Space Command has utilized a delta symbol previously, the image Trump posted is a lot...

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a lot of movie. Are you ready?

Despite what some may think, Disney has been pretty clear this film is the end to the trilogy of trilogies which came to be known as the Skywalker Saga. There certainly won’t be any shortage of new stories in...

The Runaways Cast Tells Us How the Teen Heroes Find Their Way Back Together in Season 3

The Runaways have been through so much already, what’s a witch and an alien invasion going to do? Oh, right. Probably a lot of bad stuff.

When last we watched Hulu’s Runaways, everything was a mess (again) and that included the teen heroes being separated. While Marvel Television is no more — and before that we heard this would be the show’s last season —there’s a lot of ground to cover before...

Why It Makes Perfect Sense for Harley Quinn to Be Sweary as Fuck

Why It Makes Perfect Sense for Harley Quinn to Be Sweary as Fuck

She’s finally here and she’s ready to fucking roll.

The highly anticipated Harley Quinn animated series premiered to the DC Universe-subscribed masses last week, and if you somehow randomly came to it not realizing it wasn’t your typical cartoon , you might have been taken back by all the F-bombs. While entertaining , this Harley Quinn is certainly not for everyone.

That said, the new series is...

How Servant's Composer Made a Creepy Show Even Creepier

How Servant's Composer Made a Creepy Show Even Creepier

Apple TV+’s mysterious Servant —from M. Night Shyamalan and Tony Basgallop—begins streaming tomorrow. The unsettling atmosphere of the show is achieved in part due to its fantastically moody score. Today, io9 is debuting an exclusive track from the show and we got to talk to composer Trevor Gureckis, too.

Servent is...an odd one , but I’m looking forward to folks getting to watch it so I can...

Chris Evans Says It Would 'Be a Shame to Sour' Captain America's MCU Ending by Bringing Steve Back

“You never say never,” was Chris Evans’ response to colleague Scarlett Johansson when she asked if he’d consider returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But his feelings are actually a lot deeper than that.

The casual chat was as part of Variety’s Actors on Actors and mostly centered on the two Avengers sharing a lot of love for their characters and their time spent with the other MCU...

Pedro Pascal's Wonder Woman 1984 Character Is Exactly Who You Thought He Was

It feels like eons ago we learned Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal would be joining the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman sequel in an undisclosed role, what with him picking up another juicy role in the meantime you can’t really blame us for getting distracted. So it was a bit of surprise to see director Patty Jenkins just...tweeted out his “secret” role today.
