The Defenders debuted on Netflix yesterday, bringing together four different characters and TV shows into one giant super mega crossover.

The Excellent Defenders is Greater Than the Sum of its Parts

It sounds like an insult to say that The Defenders is exactly what you thought it would be, but it isn’t. It’s a show that’s very aware of the expectations put upon it and the problems encountered by the other Marvel Netflix shows, and it knows how to best utilise its cast and its time. In other words, it’s great. Read More >>

Porn Site xHamster Wants to Help Netflix Make More Sense8

A couple of months ago Netflix made itself very unpopular by cancelling Sense8 after two series. It declared it wouldn't be bringing the series back, despite all the fan campaigning, before relenting and ordering a two-hour episode to wrap things up. Now an unlikely ally has appeared for people who want a proper third series: porn streaming site xHamster. (SFW link) Read More >>

Matt LeBlanc Wants to Broaden Top Gear’s Appeal

Top Gear has always been a programme about cars of many shapes and forms, but when it came to the Clarkson-led era of the show that wasn't why it was so popular. It was entertainment, some scripted and some not, with cars in the middle, and wasn't the kind of thing designed to appeal to diehard motorists. The recent revivals didn't quite catch onto that with its more 'petrolheady' vibe, but according to Matt LeBlanc that will be changing. Read More >>

The Force Unleashed’s Sith Jerk Starkiller Almost Appeared in Star Wars Rebels

One of the worst characters in history almost appeared in Star Wars Rebels. Starkiller, the main playable character from LucasArts' Star Wars: The Force Unleashed video game and its sequel, is a dreadful dullard. A horribly one-note moaner, it's a genuine joy to see him get barbecued by the Emperor. The fact the games essentially credit him with forging the Rebel Alliance is so unbearably insulting, I want to personally crowdfund a Men In Black memory wiper just to purge the hours I spent with that thoroughly average hack 'n' slasher from my mind. So thank the Sith Billy Buzzcut didn't appear in the show. Read More >>
