Ginella Massa was asked to fill in on the anchor desk for CityNews’ 11 p.m. broadcast last week and created a buzz after the broadcast ended and she Tweeted, “That’s a wrap!

    Twenty-eight years ago the little science fiction show that could, “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” premiered on Thanksgiving Day. It all started with one Earthling, series creator Joel Hodgson, and his gang of lovable robot puppets. Together they drifted through space in the “Satellite of Love,” warmly lampooning low-budget B-movies with titles like “Teenagers From Outer Space” and “The Leech Woman.” It was an odd show whose shoe-string budget and screwball tone often mimicked the very movies it skewered. The misfit humor struck a note with fans and despite multiple series cancellations and resurrections, (including a recasting of Hodgson with Mike...

    If you're looking to chill out and watch a movie that will "stick with you" for months then I recommend "Even Horizon". This movie is by far one of the best Sci-Fi movies of it's time, though overlooked. I am posting the preview but if you're like me you should stop after the first 15 seconds so you go into the film not knowing anything about it. One thing I will tell however is that this film is deeply unsettling with a palpable sense of doom, and it's scary because of what it doesn't show you. Event Horizon Trailer ......

    MIT has a new nylon-based artificial muscle-like filament created by researchers that could eventually provide the basis for robots with bulging biceps. The filaments themselves look eerily similar to the ones extruded by the 3D printers used in the opening sequence of HBO’s Westworld, which is why Gizmodo and others are seeing parallels between potential applications of the tech and Westworld‘s lifelike hosts. MIT’s new solution isn’t the first artificial muscle technology developed, but it is simple and low cost, unlike existing offerings. The researchers developing the tech found that specific types of nylon fiber can reproduce some of the...

Saturday’s installment of SNL drew 4.7 million overall household viewers and 2.2 million among the oft-coveted 18-49 demographic. Those numbers are down substantially from last week’s overall and 18-49 viewership of 6.2 million and 3.9 million, respectfully. The show featured Baldwin as President-elect Trump, so ignorant of foreign policy that he had to Google the meaning of ISIS.

    Here is the essence of Trump's brilliance. The hell with the MSM!!! He continues to release Youtube videos where he spells out EXACTLY what he wants. And when the media complains, he basically gives them a middle finger and says when they start to report on him fairly, he might talk to them! This means no more of the media slandering him and no more of the media simply playing a ten second spot and making people think that's all he is about... Trump can spell it all out and DOES spell it all out in his vids! Brilliant!

    His new series has been greeted as a glorious comeback after an ignominious exit from the BBC. But Jeremy Clarkson’s show The Grand Tour has brought with it the familiar whiff of controversy thanks to a tasteless joke about ebola. The resemblance of a racetrack in his Amazon Prime series to a magnified image of the virus led Clarkson to dub it the Eboladrome. And the remark brought an immediate backlash from viewers startled by the former Top Gear star’s apparent insensitivity over a disease that killed 30,000 in West Africa two years ago.

    Perhaps panic over the NFL’s evaporating television audience was premature. On the first post-election Sunday, the league’s ratings surged thanks to two marquee match ups. According to NBC, Seahawks-Patriots drew the network its biggest Week 10 Sunday Night Football audience in five years. Meanwhile in Fox’s late-afternoon window, the Cowboys’ 35-30 win over the Steelers was the NFL’s highest-rated individual game this year. However it’s indisputable that NFL viewership lagged over the season’s first half. Entering Week 9, industry experts peg total NFL consumption down about 14 percent. In a memo sent from the NFL office in early October, the...

    J.K. Rowling’s latest fantasy blockbuster explores a clandestine world of stylish, secretive creatures who live undetected among an oblivious, mistrustful majority in New York City, and have their own cool underground bars.
