'Journey To Babel' Is Everything Perfect About Star Trek: The Original Series 

Star Trek: The Original Series has a lot of great episodes, running the gamut from the emotionally devastating (“The City on the Edge of Forever”) to the comedic (“The Trouble With Tribbles”). And yet, for my money, no episode is a better example of everything the Original Series got right than “Journey to Babel”.

How The Sonic Franchise Screwed Itself From The Beginning

Video: Sonic is a joke. That’s what happens when something crafted by market research to be “cool” stumbles along for 25 years. But it’s not just the irritating “Gotta go fast! Chilli dogs!” attitude that Sonic is supposed to convey that makes him an unsympathetic relic to the worst parts of the ’90s. The franchise itself has painted itself into a corner of uncoolness, as this video from Innuendo Studios explains.

In Defence Of Alien 3, Which Actually Doesn't Suck

Recently, Sigourney Weaver said that Neill Blomkamp’s still-in-the-ether Alien movie be a new sequel to Aliens, meaning that it would render the series’ existing third and fourth films redundant. Alien 3 may be the most maligned film in the franchise, but it would be a shame to erase Ripley’s adventure on Fury 161, and here’s why.

It's Officially Cool To Be Completely Apathetic About Pokemon GO

The life cycle of a trend usually goes something like this: Manic obsession, backlash, backlash to the backlash, slow death.

(How sweetly she coos.)

Please Stop Marrying Fictional Characters To People They Met As Children, It's Creepy 

Here’s a fun idea: if you’re writing a book where the protagonists are children, maybe consider not having them marry each other later in life.

Marvel's Got An Asian Problem And It's Not Getting Any Better

One of the latest Marvel casting rumours making the rounds is that Michael Barbieri’s Spider-Man: Homecoming character is based on Ganke Lee, who, in the comics, is the best friend of Miles Morales. Not regular Spider-Man, better known as Peter Parker. In the comics, Ganke Lee is a pudgy Korean-American.

iPhone Design Is In The Danger Zone

A report about an all-glass iPhone is giving me palpitations. Apple do you want me to die? What would be the point of this mindless gimmick?

Hey, Game Of Thrones, What Is Up With Dorne?

If you watched the season premiere of Game of Thrones, you were treated with a brief return to Dorne, that south-most region of Westeros where last season’s most boring storyline took place. And then, after seeing one of the show’s greatest deviations from the books, you started wondering what the hell is happening here.

My Awful Year With The Apple Watch

I bought the Apple Watch a year ago. I stopped wearing it two months ago, and I’m not sure if I’ll ever wear it again. That’s because it doesn’t really do anything that anyone needs, and even when it does, it doesn’t always work like it’s supposed to.

We've Reached Peak Smartphone

Two things became apparent after the end of the Autumn 2016 Smartphone Glut. One: Android is still a second-class citizen when it comes to gaming, and two: smartphones are in a ridiculously boring place.
