Winter Storm Jonas pretty much has the East Coast stuck inside this weekend, which means that you’re probably sitting in front of your television scrolling through Netflix. Allow us to help.
The whole point of a post-apocalyptic story is that someone survives. But when you have a calamity that wipes out 99.9 percent of all humans, then how exactly do you explain the survivors? In honor of the new Maze Runner movie, here are the 14 dumbest ways people survive the apocalypse.
The X-Files, Heroes and Twin Peaks are all coming back to our screens soon, with at least some of the original castmembers returning. Sounds great—except that this sort of thing doesn’t always work out. Here are the most ignominious examples of classic TV shows that were reanimated...but they came back wrong.
Sometimes it seems like every villain is obsessed with murdering the hero of the story. (Or making the hero realize they're alike.) But it's not true — in fact, some of the best villains have their own goals, and the hero just happens to get in the way. Here are some great villains whose schemes don't revolve around…
With its new show Ascension, Syfy hopes to return us to its Battlestar Galactica glory days. But let's hope Syfy doesn't forget the most important lesson from BSG's success: Sometimes a simple idea carries the most weight. BSG dropped the loudest, most reverberating space mic ever, and a lot of its power came from one…
Fan theories can be wonderful and strange, but sometimes a fan will come up with an idea that's even better than the official story. Here are just some of the fan theories that actually make a lot of sense—and would actually improve the stories they come from.
Legendary TV creator Glen A. Larson has passed away at the age of 77 from esophageal cancer. He created the original Battlestar Galactica TV series, brought Buck Rogers to TV, and the kitschy '80s hit Knight Rider and the less fortunate but cult favorite Manimal and Automan series.
Every time a TV show gets greenlit, it's a huge gamble. Networks stake millions of dollars on risky ideas, that need to bring back audiences week after week. Sometimes it pays off — Lost and Game of Thrones cost a lot of money — but sometimes it doesn't. Here are the 10 most expensive failed TV shows of all time.
If a TV show nowadays doesn't have at least one big twist now and then, chances are it doesn't remain on the air for long. But only a handful of TV series have the courage to completely transform themselves — to show something so crazy, it irrevocably redefines the show from that point on. We've been lucky to have…
There aren't too many characters like Richard B. Riddick nowadays. He's an old-fashioned sort of anti-hero, whose amoral brutality is tempered by a code of honor. He was great in his first movie, but it turns out that antiheroes have a hard time supporting a franchise. As his new movie, Riddick, sadly proves.
The Japanese language version of Chinese state media site China.org.cn recently ran an article titled "Four Major Trends in Aircraft Carrier Development." Guess one of those trends is Battlestar Galactica art.
Typically "larp"—which stands for "live action role playing" game—is one of those words that can outright kill the mood. (No offense, larpers!) But this? This sounds a-ma-zing.
Actual Battlestar Galactica games have been pretty awful. Most fan-made mods never end up being finished. But Diaspora, one of the more promising attempts to put players in the cockpit of a Viper (or a Raptor), has actually made it to the finish line, and is now available for download.
The Battlestar Valkyrie, Bill Adama's last command before taking control of the Galactica, isn't exactly as famous as the show's namesake, or even the Pegasus. But it looks magnificent in this LEGO recreation.
It's not a game, either. That would be too easy. No, the kids are making a proper flight simulator, with hydraulic cockpit, instrument panels, the works.
In the same vein as the previously wonderful Game of Thrones RPG parody video, CollegeHumor has posted a mock-up of what a SNES RPG based on the recent Battlestar Galactica series would have looked like.
A swell Battlestar Galactica mod for Nexus drew the attention of NBC Universal, who sent a cease-and-desist over to ModDB, which had been hosting the work on it. And 19 other BSG mods. All have been wiped out.
It's a sad world we live in when the best Battlestar Galactica games available are a rather dry MMO and some fan-made mods.
Space combat sims, much like their terrestrial flight sim counter-parts, aren't quite as popular as they used to be.
