Netflix's Stranger Things took the world by storm with its canny and effective use of 1980s nostalgia and a story that was more binge-worthy than anyone expected.

There are tons of untold Doctor Who stories out there -- but none have ever captivated fans quite so much as the almost-aired "Shada". In the nearly 40 years since it was originally cancelled, it has become legendary among Who fans, and a story the BBC has frequently tried to tell, including in a new animated version due out next month.

Here's to the fools who dream... of electric sheep. YouTuber William Yates (under the name The Doctor of Will) released a short fan teaser trailer for La La Land 2049, a futuristic sequel for the 2016 movie musical that explores love in a vacuum of endless time instead of making it yet another example of Ryan Gosling explaining jazz.

But it looks like no one bothered telling the director or new star what the hell was actually happening.
A few years ago, Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks created an animated LEGO version of the tragic Greek figure, Sisyphus, perpetually pushing a giant boulder. Using the same building techniques, Allemann has created a modern version of that character, who now spends eternity perpetually mowing a lawn that will never stop growing.
When we left Oliver Queen at the end of Arrow's fifth season, he was standing over the smoking ruins of pretty much everything the show had built up over its first five years. Last night's premiere mostly dealt with the fallout of said explosiveness, but, because this is Arrow, it also threw a familiar giant wrench into Ollie's life. Spoiler alert!
Karl Urban is unsure about the future of the Star Trek movies. Kevin Feige discusses bringing the style of Thor: Ragnarok to the Avengers movies. Another familiar face is coming back for X-Files. Plus, teeny new snippets of Justice League footage, and tons of new pictures from the big CW/DC crossover. Spoilers now!
