When Julian took off Caitlin’s necklace to save her life at the end of the last episode, you might have thought The Flash would return from its month-long hiatus with a Killer Frost battle. Well, we’re not quite there yet. For now, Barry faces an especially tough obstacle: His future self is kind of a dick. If you thought current Barry made bad decisions sometimes, he’s got nothing on future Barry.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of the coolest, most stylish anime series of all time, and it’s getting its own live-action film adaptation. Up until now, there hadn’t been much talk about the live-action version, but it’s being directed by Takashi Miike (Audition and other excellent films) so we know it’s at least got that going for it. There have been a couple of new stills released showing off what we might be able to expect from the upcoming project.
National Geographic’s new scripted drama Genius has a great premise. Each season focuses on the life of an inventor or scientist, with the goal being to impart a deeper understanding of who the person was. Their first subject is Albert Einstien, a man we’ve all heard of, but most of us know very little about. Most people have a general idea of his contributions to science. They’re vaguely familiar with the concept of relativity, and they know that E=MC2 is a thing. That’s kind of it as far as the general public’s knowledge of Einstein goes. That’s why it’s exciting to have a TV show that purports to present an unfiltered look at who the man actually was.
In a scene from the Matrix, it’s said that in that dystopic future, humans are no longer born, they are “grown” in fluid-filled sacks resembling an artificial womb. Disturbing as the image may be, we’ve just inched a bit closer to that reality.
Funko Pops continue to be one of these most delightful lines of toys in the world. They’ve found a way to wedge themselves into the vinyl toy industry and reign supreme. Although, it’s not entirely difficult when you basically cover all of pop culture and everything in between.
Hubble is one of the most important telescopes in history. It showed us so much of the universe around us and has been credited with keeping the public’s imagination about space alive — and peppering basically all media since with sprawling nebulae. But space telescope is almost 30 years old at this point. It’s had a good run, but it’s about time we made some upgrades. That’s the idea behind the forthcoming James Webb Telescope.
What’s the cutest Sanrio character out there? When I was younger, I would have said Keroppi, even though my tastes have changed a bit since then. Keroppi is still absolutely adorable, so seeing the little frog getting his own little soiree by way of Sanrio as a special little cafe called the Kero Kero Keroppi Cafe is a nice surprise!
Just when you thought the last thing you needed was yet another streaming television subscription service, one comes along that sounds pretty cool. Sometime in 2018, Warner Bros. will debut a DC Entertainment branded streaming site, according to Deadline. That’s pretty exciting for DC comics fans already, but what might make this new service worth subscribing to are two of the shows it will launch with: Young Justice: Outsiders and Titans.
