Video: Horror short Rotary, from filmmakers Patrick Young and Powell Robinson, offers a couple of jumps — and one very important reminder. Woe unto the vintage-store employee who just can't stop herself from answering a phone that should not be ringing. Girl, no! You know that old thing is just for show!
Star Trek: Discovery is the sixth and newest TV series in the long-running cultural phenomenon that is Trek, and it brings the show's long-time protagonists — those pesky Klingons — back to the fore. If you want to get into the swing of things properly and understand what Discovery might be like if you were watching on the Klingon homeworld of Klinzhai, Netflix has enabled a little Easter Egg for its Aussie audience: subtitles for the entire series in Klingon.

We now know the premise of this year's gigantic, two-night CW crossover between The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow, and it's a doozy — and a take on the classic comic book storyline of heroes fighting evil, alternate versions of themselves.
