    "I have never had any interest in watching space nerds poke each other with their little space nerd sticks, and I’m not going to start now," Timpf shared on the original broadcast. "You people are crazy. You Star Wars people are crazy. Yesterday I tweeted something, and all I said was that I wasn’t familiar with Star Wars because I’ve been too busy liking cool things and being attractive — people threatened my life. You’re not really branding yourself in a way that makes me want to join your life-threatening club." ... "Bottom line: If you are telling me that...

    All in the Family revolved around the life of a working class bigot named Archie Bunker and his family. The show set new broadcast standards by tackling issues previously considered unsuitable for U.S. network television comedy, such as racism, homosexuality, women's liberation, rape, miscarriage, abortion, breast cancer, and the Vietnam War. Throughout the 70's the series became one of television's most influential comic programs, as it interlaced radical issues of the day with the live audience sitcom format. In this episode, Its Thanksgiving and Archie decides its time to make sure that his future grandson is not raised an Atheist....

    Alternate history series 'The Man in the High Castle' set in world where Allies lost World War II Amazon has pulled ads for its series The Man in the High Castle plastered throughout the New York City subway system that featured symbols from Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, Variety reports. The new series, based on Philip K. Dick's 1962 novel of the same name, is an alternate history that imagines a world where the Allies lost World War II. The American coasts are controlled by Nazi and Japanese puppet regimes, while a free section remains in the Rocky Mountains.

    This year’s edition of the sacred MSTie tradition known as Turkey Day should be an especially festive affair, considering that the Kickstarter to fund a new season of MST3K has already exceeded its $2 million goal with 22 days left to go in the campaign. Thus, MST3K creator Joel Hodgson will carve up six juicy, tender classic episodes of the show beginning at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT next Thursday, AD. As it has for the past two years, the marathon will be presented by Shout! Factory, and live-streamed through the web portal at www.BringBackMST3K.com.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday called on Amazon.com Inc to remove "irresponsible and offensive" subway advertisements for a new television show featuring Nazi-inspired imagery. The advertisements for "The Man in the High Castle" completely wrap the seats, walls and ceilings of one train on the heavily utilized shuttle line that connects Times Square and Grand Central Terminal in midtown Manhattan. The show depicts an alternate reality in which Nazi Germany and Japan have divided control over the United States after winning World War Two.

    The last time we saw Alan Colmes on Fox was over the weekend. And even when going back and forth with the host and another commentator, he claimed that the GOP was using the Paris Crisis as red meat against Obama and maybe for the 2016 race. So technically,He is still blaming Bush for what happened in Paris along with the previous ISIS attacks. Is it safe to assume that Alan Colmes is either a complete jerk, and/or, a paid DNC commentator?

    Game of Thrones' sixth season is premiering next April. (Spoilers ahead, if that's a concern for you.) HBO shared the new season's first promotional image on Twitter this morning, and it features the bloody visage of a character that currently seems to be hovering somewhere between alive and dead: Jon Snow, former Stark bastard and Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. When we last saw Snow, he was being lured into a trap by disillusioned members of his brigade and stabbed to death in a display of brutal mutiny. Of course, there's been a ton of speculation about his true...

    LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - James Bond is back on top, after "Spectre" led the U.S. box office for the second weekend in a row. Of course, the dashing super spy wasn't exactly facing off against Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Its main competition was the second weekend of "The Peanuts Movie" and a lackluster crop of new releases such as the Chilean mining drama "The 33" and the faith-based football film "My All American." "Spectre" added $35.4 million to bring its domestic total to $130.7 million. The weekend represents a 49% drop from its opening. Sony is distributing the Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer and Eon...

With so many spies out there playing cloak and dagger games across the silver screen, it’s not surprising that there could be some creative bleed-over between franchises. Mission: Impossible 5 and James Bond 24 were especially similar: both featured stories where the franchise hero had to uncover a...

A few strategic partnerships as well as a discerning eye in the costume department has turned Britain’s leading secret agent into one of the best-dressed men to ever hit the silver screen. So when it comes to dressing like him, what will do? It turns out the answer to that is the very best of everything.

    If you were on Google earlier this week -- and let's face it, you were -- you may have spotted a Google Doodle which celebrates the life of one of Hollywood's most iconic actresses. Hedy Lamarr, an actress of the golden age of cinema, would have been 101 years old this week, although simply calling her an actress might be something of a misnomer. As well as appearing in films, Lamarr also applied her incredible intellect to a series of scientific and technological endeavors, which eventually earned her a place in the National Inventors Hall of Fame and practically...

TMZ reports the network will not allow it.Sources say that that DWTS...

    In an interview in Salon touting his new book Unstoppable, which should be filed in the fiction category at your local library, the title of the interview proclaims, “Bill Nye demolishes climate deniers.” After reading the article, I was left asking: Who are these deniers, and where does this demolishing take place?Salon and Nye have evidently taken a page from the climate dogmatists’ playbook and decided to label any climate realists with the derogatory term “deniers,” linking them to holocaust deniers, an offensive smear the Associated Press requires its writers to avoid. For Nye, a climate denier is anyone who...

    Donald Trump wasn’t too popular on The View a couple months back. Trump had disparaged Republican rival Carly Fiorina’s appearance, and Joy Behar called him out, asking, “Why don’t you talk about her brain, instead of her face?” Behar made clear that attacking someone’s looks is just unacceptable. Well, except when she does it; then it’s totally fine. Following a televised debate, Behar said Fiorina’s face resembled “a Halloween mask,” while co-hosts Michelle Collins and Whoopi Goldberg joked that she seemed “demented.” Of course, they didn’t just insult the former CEO. When she came on the show, they also took...

    In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it's been a long time since Return of the Jedi, and a lot has changed. And one of the changes we haven't heard about yet? The Empire's new name. Turns out the Empire and the Rebels are both called something different in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While taking a tour of the props and costumes from the soon-to-be released Episode VII we noticed that the Empire was not being called the Empire. It was being called The First Order. Next to the model of the brand new Resistance X-Wing Fighter was a placard...
