  • Minimalist Posters of Iconic TV Shows

    Why do we enjoy minimalist art so much these days? Is it that we are so overstimulated with contemporary life that we find solace in the clean lines and simple colors of the work? Do we envy the ability to strip away complexities without compromising integrity? Or is that we just think it looks cool? Whatever the reason, minimalism is everywhere right now. Greek illustrator and graphic designer Giannis Sideris has done a lot of minimalist works recently. His latest series is a collection of classic TV shows. Check out the rest of the series and more minimalist collections from Giannis Sideris at Behance.

  • US State Flags Game Of Thrones Style

    Do you know what your state’s flag looks like? Don’t worry about it, because chances are it’s not as cool as these “Game of Thrones” style sigils created by Redditor boo-yay. Utilizing HBO’s sigil generator, boo-yay used symbols and state mottoes to create house flags for all 50 states and some territories. If you’re wondering why Massachusetts is spelled wrong, it’s not because boo-yay is a dolt. The generator limits the amount of text per line and Massachusetts is just too damn long. What do you think of your state’s sigil? Source: Reddit

  • The Amount Of VFX In Game Of Thrones Is Incredible [Video]

    Ever wonder how much of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is computer-generated wizardry? The answer is pretty much all of it. Castles, mountains, water, fog, and even people are added in post-production. This video from Mackevision, just one of the visual effects studios responsible for the show, illustrates the vast world created by these visual artists who are so good at what they do, we don’t even notice the extent of their work.

  • The Geographic Legacy of ‘Seinfeld’ [Link]

    “Seinfeld” is constantly cited as the greatest sitcom of the 90s if not of all time and its reruns still attract plenty of viewers in syndication. Thanks to exteriors shot in New York City and references to real locales, NYC tourism owes a little something to the “show about nothing,” too. Unfortunately, the sitcom, which premiered 25 years ago and ended its run in 1998, mentions many places that no longer exist. Find out which Seinfeld locations are still standing and what happened to the rest.

  • Nothing Says “America” Like A Laser Fight On The Statue Of Liberty [Video]

    Is there a better way to celebrate freedom than watching a children’s cartoon featuring a laser battle atop the Statue of Liberty? No. Of course there isn’t. In 1987 we were blessed with a feature length G.I. Joe cartoon movie that featured this incredible introduction. Jersey City is promising a huge spectacular at Liberty State Park tonight, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for something at least half this amazing.

  • 5 Shark Tank Pitches that Bit the Big One

    What could be better than watching people beg billionaires for money? Watching them fail, of course! Shark Tank has helped some ordinary folks achieve extraordinary success with their businesses, it’s true, but you know you watch it for the same reason you watch American Idol auditions: to see people make bigger idiots of themselves than you ever have. If it’s a bit of idiocy escapism you’re after, we’ve got five doses of Shark Tank failure from first season to last, to fuel your schadenfreude. Sit back, relax, and laugh at other people’s dreams as they tank. Ionic Ear No surprise that one of the most outrageous ideas to appear on Shark Tank swam along on the very first episode—pilot episodes set the bar high to get audiences paying attention. As a listening device, though, the Ionic Ear totally jumps the shark. While the days of techno-implants might be near, they won’t be starting with this Bluetooth speaker surgically injected into users’ ears, nor did it’s creator get the $1,000,000 he was asking for what was little more than a PowerPoint presentation. Wake’n Bacon Bacon was all the buzz when this device debuted on Season Two of Shark Tank, but by more »

  • The Surprising Lessons Of Drunk History [Link]

    “Drunk History” was one of the best sketches on Funny or Die and we were incredibly excited when Comedy Central picked it up as a 30-minute TV show last year. With season 2 just beginning, now is the perfect time to learn a little bit about how the show came about and what it’s like making each hilarious episode. Let writer Emily Zemler, who portrays Janis Joplin on an episode airing July 15, show you how much of the show is comedy and how much is real history. 

  • Game of Thrones…With Pugs [Video]

    Sure, this Game of Thrones video with pugs seems like an adorable idea at first, but what would happen if it followed the same storyline? Would you be willing to watch thousands of pugs slaughtered each season? And everyone says they hate Joffrey, but you’d have to be one sick puppy to hate him in pug form.

  • How the Effects From ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Were Made

    Say what you will about this past shocking season of ‘Game of Thrones’, but you can’t deny it’s stunning visual effects. The season was jam packed with intense battle sequences, dragons and well blood and gore. Blood and gore you wouldn’t be able to mimic without the aid of a superb FX staff. The video below is most definitely filled with SPOILERS, so if you’re not all caught up quit your job go finish the season and then watch this masterful video created by digital compositor Calvin Romeyn,

  • Spanish Language “Breaking Bad” Es Muy Bueno

    Last week, “Metastasis,” the Spanish-language version of AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” premiered on Univision. The show follows cancer-stricken chemistry teacher Walter Blanco and his partner-in-crime and former student Jose Miguel Rosas as they cook up drugs to make money for Walter’s treatments. There are some differences, but for the most part, it’s a faithful recreation albeit with a lower budget. The good news is there will be no cliffhangers that you’ll have to wait 9 months to resolve. All 62 episodes have already been filmed, with 6 already airing. That means the whole show should wrap up in three months. There’s only one problem: no subtitles. So if you had trouble passing high school Spanish 15 years ago, you’re gonna have a bad time. Watch the first episode below, streaming on Hulu.

  • TV’s Greatest Catch Phrases, Because ‘How you Doin?’

    Some of television’s greatest moments in history were catchphrases coined by a select few lovable characters throughout the golden years of television programing. From Urkel’s nasally high pitched fumbled “Did I do that?” to Joey Tribiani’s “How you doin?” inquiry of seduction that got lady’s all hot and bothered, here are the best television catch phrases of all time.

  • 15 Of Your Favorite Characters Dr. Seuss-ified

    Australia-based artist DrFaustusAU has combined some of the darkest horror and sci-fi movie and TV characters with the colorful, cartoony art of beloved children’s book author Dr. Seuss in his Seussian Gallery. The next step would be to actually make the entire books for some of these. An illustrated Silence of the Lambs? Who wouldn’t want to see a Seussian Buffalo Bill’s mangina? Check out more Seuss-ified characters and other great work from DrFaustusAU at deviantArt.

  • Guillermo del Toro Brings Modern Day Vampires to FX with “The Strain”

    Master of horror, the colossus of creepy, the great scare-bino, Guillermo del Toro is bringing his unique take on sci fi/horror to the small screen with “The Strain”. As always del Toro has been teasing us with some ominous clips, but here is the first look at the FX movie. The Strain takes place in modern day times, where a strange occurrence happens on a plane. All passengers on board seem to have dies, but then somehow come back to life. The 30-second TV spot is filled with close-ups, body bags and haz-mat suits. Lost’s Carlton Cuse and del Toro are teaming up for what’s probably going to be this summer’s biggest series.

  • The monoliths: 17 supercomputers from the ’60s [Link]

    A new era in techonolgy began when Seymour Cray developed the CDC 6600 in 1964. 10 times faster than any other computer at the time, the 6600 was dubbed a “supercomputer.” The original supercomputers cost $8 million each, but scientists hoped to cure the world’s ills with the devices. Many science fiction authors, however, took a more macabre approach, believing the supercomputers to turn on us and ultimately bring about our doom. Learn about 17 nefarious computers who wanted to destroy us then realize that your smartphone has more computing power than anything from 50 years ago…

  • Ill-Fated Simpsons Car “The Homer” Built Out Of LEGOs

    In season 2 of “The Simpsons,” which aired 23 years ago by the way, we learned that Homer had a half-brother named Herb Powell who owned a car company called Powell Motors. Herb asked Homer to help design a car for the everyman. The finished product, dubbed The Homer, featured two bubble domes, shag carpeting, three horns, and tailfins. It was a complete failure. Now that LEGO is producing sets based on The Simpsons, LEGO enthusiast Brain Williams has taken it upon himself to build an incredible replica of The Homer. You can see the model in person at Brickworld or head over to Williams’ Flickr account, loaded with pictures of plenty of awesome LEGO creations.

  • Ray Romano Duets Are The Best Songs You’ll Hear All Day [Video]

    The Pete Holmes Show, airing Monday through Thursday on TBS after Conan, does not get as much love as it deserves. With so many late night shows, it’s easily lost in the shuffle. Luckily, many great sketches can be found on Pete Holmes’ YouTube channel. This most recent video features Holmes’ incredible imitation of comedian Ray Romano performing duets of pop songs with the real Ray Romano.  The result is excruciatingly terrible and beautiful all at once.

  • New FOX ‘Gotham’ Trailer Features Penguin, Riddler, Poison Ivy and Catwoman

    With the super-hero era in full swing on the big screen, Marvel and DC are trying their luck with television. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. started pretty slow, but after a foundation was set is turning out to be a great success. ‘Gotham’ takes place in the time just before Bruce Wayne witnesses the murder of his parents, then the time after where the show molds his character into the eventual dark knight. The show revolves around detective Jim Gordon in an era where the city of Gotham was in virtual ruins and the trailer shows us hints of the future with The Penguin, The Riddler, Catwoman and a young poison ivy. The show’s prequel setting set around Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is a brilliant take on the origins of our favorite heroes and villains of the DC world.

  • Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig Sings Seinfeld Theme In New Game

    @Seinfeld2000, the bizarre Twitter account that reimagines the characters of Seinfeld in alternate, surreal settings, has recently launched a new video game. The Junior Mint, a game named after the 1993 episode where Jerry drops his Junior Mints into a surgery patient, allows players to do just as Jerry, and drop as many of the confections into the patient as they can. The game is oddly addictive, but the best part is the music. Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend performs an a cappella version of the iconic theme song that’s looped as you toss your mints. Play the game for yourself at the The Junior Mint and follow @Seinfeld2000.

  • Grab A Martini And Check Out These “Mad Men” Sets [17 HQ Photos]

    There was a time when our generation thought of the 60s as a time when stuffy old men fought communism and orchestrated presidential assassinations while promiscuous hippie girls seduced slow-witted boys from their childhood. Then “Mad Men” came along and showed us the sharp suits and ample-bosomed redheads of the era. It also taught us that our grandparents’ houses were really cool looking once you remove the bowls of Werther’s Originals and tar stains brought on by 50 years of smoking Chesterfields. Interior Design recently interviewed series creator Matthew Weiner about the sets and the time period. Take a look at these photos, then read the interview at Interior Design. 

  • Could Sitcom Characters Really Afford Their Cribs? [Infographic]

    Due to the nature of TV, a large space is needed to film in, so sitcom characters tend to live in pretty big spaces. But sometimes the space is so big as to make it extremely difficult to suspend disbelief. This infographic takes 15 TV characters from current and classic shows and ranks their ability to pay for their homes. Did you believe Al Bundy could afford his two-story, 3 bedroom house on his shoe salesman salary? Not even close. And Danny Tanner, the happiest widower on TV, paying for that giant house in San Francisco for his 3 daughters and 2 best friends as host of a local morning show? They’d be on the street in no time!

  • Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Interview For Workaholics [Video]

    In the best ever ad that’s not really an ad at all, Zac Efron and Seth Rogen interview to be the new cubicle-mate of Workaholics’ Adam, Ders, and Blake at TelAmeriCorp. The hilarious interview, filled with filthy language and blatant homoeroticism, is actually funnier than most of the current season of the show. And you don’t even realize that the segment is to advertise for the upcoming movie “Neighbors” until the very end. This is how advertising should be done.

  • Behind The Scenes Photos Of James Franco, Jason Segel, And Seth Rogen When They Were Teens [17 Photos]

    From 1999-2000, NBC aired “Freaks and Geeks,” a high school comedy-drama set in the early 80s. The series was created by Paul Feig, who went on to direct “Bridesmaids,” and produced by Judd Apatow, who has made pretty much every comedy blockbuster of the last 15 years. The short-lived show is most remembered, though, for the “Freaks,” including James Franco, Jason Segel, and Seth Rogen. It was the first time many of us saw these actors, and nobody could guess the huge stars they would become after appearing on a show that lasted just 18 episodes.

  • Watch Mike Judge’s New Show “Silicon Valley” On YouTube [Video]

    The nice folks at HBO have decided to save us cheapskates from having to pirate Mike Judge’s new comedy “Silicon Valley” by offering the first episode for free on YouTube. It’s a pretty funny show featuring a ton of people who will have you saying “Hey! It’s that guy from that thing…” So watch the first episode, contemplate buying future episodes, then return to downloading from shady sites and wonder why your computer is overrun with malware, you bum.

  • Spanish ‘Breaking Bad’ remake ‘Metastasis’ vs. the original: What’s new? PHOTOS [Link]

    Have you found yourself suffering these last six months knowing that “Breaking Bad” is done with?

The bad news? It might be a little different than what you’re used to.

  • #CancelColbert Fiasco Summed Up By Taiwanese Animators [Video]

    Have you missed out on the recent Twitter campaign to #CancelColbert over a satirical tweet that some interpreted as racist? What began as a jab at Dan Snyder has caused agitated agitators like Suey Park to call for the end of the Comedy Central program while the original issue of the NFL’s Redskins being offensive to American Indians has been pushed aside. Judging by this animation from Taiwanese Animators, it looks like Suey Park isn’t speaking for all Asians, however.

  • Internet Superstar George Takei to Host Saturday Night Live

    Actor George Takei, known for his iconic role as Sulu on Star Trek and more recently for his commanding presence on social media, has been invited to host the popular late night television show after fans around the world clamored for it in various online petitions. It is April 1st, and George is known to be a funny guy, so this could be a well orchestrated April Fools joke but for now (fingers crossed) we’re going to consider it to be true: The 39th season of Saturday Night Live runs until the end of May and no date has been set but George announced the good news via Huffington Post: I’ve waited years to say these words. After a Facebook petition propelled Betty White to be invited to host Saturday Night Live back in 2010, fans of mine have clamored for me to receive a similar invitation. I demurred, but the fans kept up their pressure. And then, last week, the network called to work out the details with my husband and unofficial scheduler, Brad. “George has to do this,” they insisted. “He’s a natural fit.” Brad suggested we appear together as a high-profile same-sex married couple to help raise more »

  • Bryan Cranston Was A Teen Heartthrob In 1985

    Before he was Heisenberg, Malcolm’s Dad, or Jerry Seinfeld’s dentist, Bryan Cranston starred in the ABC soap “Loving,” and if this 1985 issue of Teen Talk is to be believed, he was every teen girl’s dream. This photo spread features everyone’s favorite crystal meth cook in too-short shorts showing his playful side in New York City’s Central Park. Who knew he was a “jock of all trades?” Is this magazine still being published? They should do an updated spread with Bryan in the same outfit plus Heisenberg hat. What girl could resist?
