ICYMI, The Jedi Joker himself gave an Oxford talk. He’s expectedly brilliant, wandering through answers like a gifted storyteller. From discouraging aspiring actors to saying George Lucas is not a genius (you’ll understand when you watch), he’s frank and entertaining.
For my mother’s generation, the “Where were you when...?” question was most likely about the assassination of JFK. For the generation younger than me, it was 9/11. For me, it was the fall of the Berlin Wall. And the Challenger tragedy.
Remember when Darth Vader exposed Obi-Wan’s lie? Remember how you felt the first time it was revealed? Well, here’s a little girl, eyes glued to the screen, to remind you. It’s Star Wars: Attack of the Adorables.
This man, Chris Stuckman, speaks for me, RE: Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
It’s here, people. We’re living in it. The Golden Age of Nerds is upon us. And it’s a glorious time to be alive! We’re under two weeks away from the next Star Wars movie — the important one we all really wanted: the sequel to Return of the Jedi. And all around us, the cup of nerdy pursuits runneth over.
Have fun io9. I got me a date with Jessica Jones. Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. I’ll be back in, um, well, I’ll be back. That’s all that is important.
You know the posting style where the author tells you exactly what’s in the video before you watch it? Yeah, I’m not gonna do that beyond saying, here is Bryan Cranston at SDCC doing a Nerd HQ panel and being a heartless bastard.
You Can Take The Girl Out of Texas But ... I Got Nothing.
X Company is set in WWII and features the thrill of being resistance fighters in occupied France as well as exploring the little-known Canadiana of Camp X, the secret Allied spy training school.
Earlier, Meredith Woerner detailed why a specific thread in the rebooted Battlestar Galactica's much loved episode "33" helped secure its viewers. The moment, she contends, where Battlestar Galactica won our hearts. It reminded me of another television sci-fi odyssey, with a BSG connection: Babylon 5.
Many Orphan Black fans wish we'd get more than 10 episodes a season so we can see more of our favourite clones, brother seestra, and clone allies because there is just so much going on in the story.

Tonight, The Big Bang Theory celebrates Star Wars Day with a Star Wars-themed episode. But can it begin to measure up to the wealth of funny Star Wars tributes in television, movies, and comics?
Isis-Script wrote a good reply and, really, I'm not going to into the depth of detail of what I like about the film for two reasons: 1. If you didn't like it, it ain't my problem to convince you otherwise. There is no accounting for taste. 2. There are likely hundreds of articles on the internet extolling the virtues…
I'm glad that we now have the luxury of critiquing what would have been a better way of exploring a changing sexuality on television. Of course, framing it in the context of when it happened, exactly what forerunning was there to draw from? Personally, I thought the way things unfolded was pretty awesome. I'm not the…
Star Wars 1313 was a big-money game in development at Lucasarts, scrapped after the publisher’s demise and seemingly never to return. We may never get to play the game, but we can look at its concept art and dream.
The folks over at IMDb have a poll going on, asking what was your favourite TV series finale. Some biggies are on there but, for now, Babylon 5 is leading the poll.
