I just got back from a late-afternoon walk, something I’m trying to do now that winter has released its grasp from “North of the Wall.” At a recent physical, the doctor told me that I am in moderate shape, but I need more physical activity; unsurprisingly, hours spent in front of a television, monitor, or […]

Alright J.J. Abrams complainers, the director has seen the error of his ways. Your four year mission of pissing and moaning about lens flare may finally be over.

Behold The Wonders Of Starcher Trek!

Whoever came up with this idea to merge the Star Trek Animated Series with the voices from Archer are some kind of wizards that should only be spoken about in hushed tones of reverent myths.

Apparently in the light of recent nudity complaints about Star Trek: Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams decided to share one of the deleted scenes: a rather short shot of Benedict Cumberbatch in the shower (looking quite miserable, I might add). Though after watching the following clip, I must admit that Conan’s version of the scene is […]
