Steven Moffat: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Was 'The Unwritable Script'

Of all the episodes of Doctor Who ever to air, none have quite the same weight as “The Day of the Doctor”, better known as the show’s 50th anniversary special. As head writer, it fell on Steven Moffat to pen the episode which, as you can imagine, was a monumental task given everything it had to achieve, for fans and the franchise alike.


This New Simpsons Couch Gag Is Most People's Lives In 40 Seconds

I love the latest Simpsons couch gag because it’s really dark comedy — like life itself. Take a look. Instead of going through his usual going-back-home-after-work routine, Homer goes through all his existence in The Game of Life, always ending up on the wrong spots.

5 Seasons And No Movie: NBC Cancels Community

Those hoping for the debut of Mr Egypt or Intensive Karen may have gotten their wishes granted, with NBC calling it quits on sitcom Community after five seasons. Despite losing its way in earlier seasons, the latest block of 13 episodes were quality, mostly thanks to creator Dan Harmon coming back on board. Sadly, it wasn’t enough to right the ship.


Beat By Dre: The Exclusive Inside Story Of How Monster Lost The World

There’s never been anything like Beats By Dre. The bulky rainbow headphones are a gaudy staple of planes, clubs and footpaths everywhere: as mammoth, beloved and expensive as their namesake.

Further Proof That Kanye Makes Everything Better (or Maybe Worse)

Video: The formula is simple: take one or more already successful intellectual properties, shamelessly rip off some sick beats remix the soundtrack using an existing Kanye West joint, then just sit back and wait for the crapstorm of Kanye fanbois and haters to eviscerate one another’s musical tastes in the discussion section. Hairless cats and maniacal laughter optional.


This Week's Top Comedy Video: Every YouTube Video Ever

Video: There’s a lot of great stuff out there on YouTube. And also lot of terrible, repetitive, utterly predictable crap that somehow gets billions of views and turns internet morons into viral celebrities. How the hell does that happen? Turns out, there’s a very specific recipe for YouTube success, and this is it.


This Week's Top Comedy Video: Bald Earth

Video: The Earth’s climate is changing and the evidence is clear — with the loss of the polar ice caps, earth is obviously going bald. But the debate rages on: does a bald earth need help, or can our planet’s chrome dome be downright sexy?


Witness The Tragedy Of The World's Last Reader With The Twilight Zone

Old troves and the newly-discovered intrigue around them was sort of our theme today, what with the discovery of decades-old Atari game cartridges in a New Mexico landfill. It’s a theme that always gets me thinking of one of The Twilight Zone’s most influential episodes: “Time Enough at Last.”


The Thinkings You Think Must Not Be Thought (NSFW)
