Every so often, a TV show likes to go outside its usual comfort zone and do something different… something weird. It abandons its usual format to try something else, suddenly becoming a musical, a comedy, a documentary, a Western, anything. If an episode manages to pull it off, it usually ends up becoming a classic — and here are 10 of those episodes.
Imagining the future is a huge challenge — few people saw smartphones and DNA-based medicine coming. But if you want proof that “futuristic” science fiction is always about the present, just look at the obsolete devices people think will still be around. Here are 12 future visions that include tech we’ve already abandoned.
Making aliens look cute is a tricky thing to get right in kids’ entertainment. Make them too weird-looking, and you could freak out your audience. Make them too adorable, and you run the risk of them looking more like plush toys than creatures from another planet.

Congratulations! The world’s northern hemisphere just survived one record-breaking heatwave, but it was only the first volley in a campaign cooked up by the sun to kill us all.

It’s 2016, and things are looking pretty grim. As prognosticators of the future, we’re here to assess the present, and remind everyone that as bad things are, they can always get much, much worse — and they are much, much worse in mirror universes and parallel worlds. Here are 16 alternate realities that make the original look like home sweet home.
They can erect giant metal statues in your likeness, paint elaborate portraits and maybe even make a movie about your life. But when they make a life-size chocolate bust of you, that’s when you know you really did something important with your time on Earth. Or off of it, in the case of Star Trek‘s Scotty.
We’re finally on the cusp of Star Trek‘s grand return to TV with the impending arrival of Star Trek: Discovery, but there have been many attempts over the year to get Trek on TV that weren’t nearly as successful. Here are four times the franchise tried to launch a new show, but failed to make it off the ground.
Someone over at the Perth Mint really likes Star Trek. Commemorative coins featuring captains from the various shows is one thing, but an actual strip of gold-pressed latinum? Now that’s hardcore.
