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".

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.
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.
The life cycle of a trend usually goes something like this: Manic obsession, backlash, backlash to the backlash, slow death. With the Pokemon GO craze, it seems that the "manic obsession" phase has just about run its course, which is lovely because that means we're one step closer to that slow, gentle death. (How sweetly she coos.)
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.
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.
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.
After years of stomach-churning anticipation, it's all over — the VR headsets of the future are here. The Rift gives you an engaging experience with a handful of excellent games. Meanwhile, the Vive gives you unprecedented control of your virtual surroundings. But as extraordinary as both devices are, they're absolute bunk compared to the best VR headset of this generation: the Samsung Gear VR.
Agent Carter is a show all about sexism, and particularly all about the notion that after World War II, women who had made a material contribution to the war effort were told to go back to their old subordinate roles. But whereas the show's first season was a fairly simple story, season two is delving into a lot more complexity.
On 6 December 1989, Canadian women were targeted, shot, and killed for being engineering students. The Montreal Massacre is a national day of remembrance and action, which makes it the perfect time for IBM to push their pinkification of science campaign.
Dear Mr Artist, this is just not the way to turn an iconic photograph to sculpture. Robert Capa is spinning in his grave. Please, take your disgusting polystyrene work out of our sight.
