Batwoman’s Idea to Replace Ruby Rose is Curiously Boring for a Comic Show

We already knew Ruby Rose decided to exit the CW’s Batwoman series after its debut season. That was surprising enough. Now there’s word that the network might not just recast the role of Batwoman, it’s possibly decided to do away with the character of Kate Kane entirely. In a universe of time travel, doppelgängers, and literal face-swapping, to this news I say, “Huh?” Read More >>

Star Trek: The Animated Series’ Must-Watch Episodes

It’s been a long road, friends, getting from here to there. A voyage, if you will, across Star Trek’s brightest spots and darkest chapters, from the original classics to its latest discoveries. But all good things must come to an end, and our guide to the very best (or at least, enjoyably silly) that Star Trek has to offer is coming to an end in a suitably animated fashion. Read More >>

X-Men: Evolution is the Mutant Cartoon You Should Be Bingewatching Right Now

Look, I get it. We all went onto Disney+ the minute we could and collectively shredded in the most radical fashion by loading up X-Men: The Animated Series and listening to a truly killer Whitney Houston riff. We’re all Children of the Atom, and Children of the ‘90s, at heart. But we could’ve been doing something more, my X-Men. We could have – should have – been watching X-Men: Evolution. Read More >>

Ronald D. Moore Dishes on the Original, Four-Hour Concept For the Battlestar Galactica Finale

This is a really long finale, said the joker to the thief. At roughly 141 minutes, the three-parter that ended Battlestar Galactica way back in 2009 wasn’t a short ending by any stretch of the imagination. But the original cut, which clocked in at around four hours, was even more extensive. The only problem was, it wasn’t as compelling. Read More >>

Cummings Goes Down Under as Mockery of Advisor Crosses Continents

"Long way to go for an eye test" is the most common comment by far beneath this image of Dominic Cummings, spotted within the fake cardboard crowd placed about an Australian stadium to make a National Rugby League match seems a little more atmospheric. Read More >>

Kit Harrington, At Least, Is Happy With Jon Snow’s Ending in Game of Thrones

It’s been a little over a year since the last episode of Game of Thrones aired, giving us a lot of time to reflect on whether or not we were satisfied with how things ended up. This is true for the actors who brought those characters to life, too. And for Kit Harrington, at least, it turned out okay. Read More >>

How to Watch Classic Simpsons in the Original 4:3 Aspect Ratio on Disney+

A lot of people were excited by the news that Disney+'s UK catalogue would feature 30 seasons of The Simpsons, only to have their hopes dashed by the fact they featured classic episodes in their 'remastered' 16:9 aspect ratio. Since the originals were shown in 4:3 it meant that chunks of the frames ended up being cut, and with them a number of visual gags that The Simpsons is known for. Read More >>

How Netflix’s Space Force Acts Like a Parallel Universe to Our Own

Fans looking to blame something or someone that the American version of The Office hasn’t returned need only look to the stars. In the seven years since that show’s end, its creator and executive producer Greg Daniels has been working almost solely on shows with space or sci-fi themes. His latest show, Netflix’s Space Force, reunites him with Office star Steve Carell and Gizmodo recently had the chance to ask him about it. Read More >>

What She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Gets Right About Redemption Arcs

I’m still reeling from the whirlwind of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’s final season. But even in a season full of excitement and warfare, what sticks with me about the show isn’t the big, dramatic setpieces. It’s how well the show understands what it means to grow. Read More >>

Now’s the Time to Rewatch Black Mirror’s ‘Striking Vipers’

Charlie Brooker was quite right when he said that now really isn’t the time for new episodes of Black Mirror. But the fact that so many of us are self-isolating at home in the midst of a pandemic that’s made it so we can’t physically touch one another makes now a particularly excellent time to go back and (re)watch “Striking Vipers,” the first episode in Black Mirror’s fifth series.
