10 Best Parks And Recreation Episodes

6 hours ago

NBC

Now that Parks and Recreation is off the air, it’s time to pay tribute to the show that has made audiences laugh more over the past seven years than any other program on television. It had an unlikely climb to success, after a shaky first season with low ratings and mixed reviews from the critics.

But just like Leslie Knope herself, Parks and Recreation found a way to keep going and, after some minor retooling, was back on the air for the second season, better than ever. Since then, it’s been a comedy juggernaut, never managing to become NBC’s ratings darling, but steadily gaining viewers as people discovered the show on Netflix and realized just how hilarious it was.

The show lasted for an impressive seven seasons but alas, all good things must come to an end. It just aired its season finale earlier this week, »

Iron Man & Hulk Posters Appear For Avengers: Age Of Ultron

6 hours ago

The Science Bros. are in full effect thanks to the brand spanking new posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will be the first in a series of one-sheets set to arrive. Set in the same location as that squashed (and let’s face it, poorly Photoshopped) school poster from earlier this week, these new individual prints display a massively miffed Hulk and Tony Stark suited and booted, minus the correct head gear. Does that man ever keep his helmet on?

Age of Ultron sees the band back together, this time facing a threat of their own creation – well Stark’s. Stepping in as the new big bad, James Spader is taking up the metal mantle of Ultron, the good ‘bot turned bad that plans to remove the human race from the planet and destroy the Avengers via despicable means whilst doing so. Naturally our heroes simply won’t stand »

DC Comics 2015 Wishlist: 10 Things That Must Happen

6 hours ago

DC Comics

The last decade or so has been a roller coaster ride for DC Comics – and the venerated publisher’s regular monthly output has certainly reflected this.

There have been earth-shattering crossover events such as Blackest Night, Final Crisis and Future’s End. There have been major revisions to almost every character in the company’s stable. There has even been one full-scale company wide reboot, the likes of which DC hadn’t seen for almost 30 years…

To better put things into perspective, 10 years ago, Batman did not have any in-canon children, Hal Jordan had yet to properly return as Green Lantern, Wally West was still plying his trade as The Flash and Martian Manhunter was not only a founding member of The Justice League, but was also considered to be its ‘heart and soul’ by almost everyone…

Anything can change in comics, and as well it should, that »

10 Shocking On Air Wrestling Burials

6 hours ago

WWE.com

Sometimes, what goes on during a pro wrestling show can be shocking. On occasion, this is down to the sheer talent on display, or an awesome angle taking place. From time to time, a show is noteworthy for the wrong reasons too – bad matches, a terrible promo or just flat out dull storylines. Whatever the case, it’s clear there’s a lot that goes into producing what wrestling fans watch on television week in and week out.

Ego is something heavily prevalent in wrestling. After all, the very macho nature of the industry almost demands that the people working within its confines are larger than life, and that’s been the case down throughout the years for hundreds of performers.

It’s often baffling to wonder why promotions make the decisions they do sometimes, especially when it comes to burying their own talent. This list isn’t »

20 Problems Only Football Manager Fans Will Understand

7 hours ago

Never before has something brought so much joy and so much pain in almost equal measure. In millions of years’ time when the human race is long gone and aliens are pouring through our historical artefacts to try and make sense of us as a civilisation, the one thing they’re going to be stuck on is this game and the role it played in the lives of so many.

You won’t be able to blame anyone from planet Zog for not understanding the game’s appeal, as even the most dedicated humans still struggle to tell you precisely why taking Yeovil on a surge towards the Premier League has been worth 213 hours of their life. If every player had put as much time and energy into something more useful then we’d probably have wiped out every major disease and be zipping around on hoverboards by now.

Fantasy Booking WrestleMania 32’s Card

7 hours ago

WWE.com

As of right now, the WrestleMania 31 card isn’t set in stone. A couple of matches have been announced and others look likely, but if last year’s event taught fans anything, it’s that things can change at any time on the Road to WrestleMania. Is it too soon to look ahead to next year’s then? Wrestlers come and go, and the most unexpected Superstars rise up the card.

Regardless, it’s not that hard to think ahead and imagine what the WWE will look like a year from now. Many members of the WWE Universe haven’t been happy with how things have been since last summer, and with WrestleMania 31 shaping up to be underwhelming, it’s nice to think that next year’s effort in Texas might recapture the magic from New Orleans.

So, what would propel next year’s WrestleMania to greatness and »

10 Incredible WWE Hardcore Title Matches You Need To See

8 hours ago

WWE

The WWF Hardcore title (1998-2002) was divisive. To some, it was an entertaining attraction that was perfectly suited to the midcard. To others, however, it was just a bunch of guys hitting each other with weapons for no rhyme or reason and lost its appeal very quickly.

Regardless of the perceived quality of the division and the wrestlers in it, the Hardcore Title was a fixture of WWF television for many years. The Hardcore Championship was originally supposed to be used in comedy segments but hardcore wrestling got more popular and the title was then pushed as a serious championship.

For the duration of 1999, wrestlers were putting each other through tables, hitting each other with steel chairs and jumping off of ladders in order to capture the belt. It certainly made for exciting television. The division was gradually phased out (it became ridiculous when people like Terri Runnels would »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About Star Trek

8 hours ago

Paramount

Being a Star Trek fan means having to remember a lot of trivia. For one thing, you have to decide what you call yourself, since followers of the show have been called “Trekologists,” “Treksters,” “Trekkies,” and “Trekkers,” with much debate going on with regards to the latter two, which some still find offensive and consider to mean different things.

Moving swiftly away from that can of worms/air vent of tribbles, Star Trek: The Original Series – as it’s come to be known – remains one of the most successful, beloved and popular science fiction properties on the planet. It began as a humble series of three seasons, cancelled before it got a chance to get its hooks in.

It has since blossomed into the biggest sci-fi franchise in history, earning a cult following in re-runs which lead to four more separate TV series, movies which recently got rebooted and are box office smashes, »

12 Majorly Insulting Comments That All Girls Are Sick Of Hearing

9 hours ago

 

The whole point of feminism is that it creates an environment and a world of equal rights between men and women. Women who tear down men aren’t feminists, they’re the ones who are being sexist. Not all men are the issue here, but there are a few out there who still see women as second class citizens and that’s just ridiculous.

Although men were created first if you follow the story of Genesis, God quite quickly realised that men couldn’t survive very long without a woman to help him along the way, as an equal. Also, Adam and sheep were incompatible.

So listen up guys, you might think that you’re helping when you say certain things but you’re really not. And ladies, if a guy says any of these things to you, refrain from punching him in the neck and feel sorry for him »

Samoa Joe Has Offer To Join WWE

9 hours ago

Tna

As soon as the word spread that Samoa Joe was quitting Tna, wrestling fans started to wonder if WWE would finally be interested in signing the soon to be 36-year-old Samoan Submission Machine. Apparently, the answer is yes.

According to Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer Radio, Joe and WWE have already held preliminary discussions about the possibility; “I know he’s got offers from WWE. I don’t know the details of them, but I know they’re there.”

He also mentioned that several other companies are interested in Joe like New Japan Pro Wrestling, Lucha Underground and he could find a lot of work doing indies every weekend the way so many wrestlers do on a regular basis.

What we know for sure is that Joe’s next place of employment is Ring of Honor. They released a Youtube video promoting it with Joe signed for several shows »

15 Famous People Who Turned Down Knighthoods

9 hours ago

Myung Jung Kim/Pa Archive

Twice yearly Queen Elizabeth II, as monarch of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, publishes a list of the names of those she is going to bestow honours upon – including the people who are going to be knighted.

At New Year and on the Queen’s official birthday in June, the list of the new “sirs” and “dames” – as well as those receiving other appointments to the Order of the British Empire – are announced, with the most-recent group including actor John Hurt and ChildLine founder Esther Rantzen.

However, there is a prestigious list of names of those who have rejected the chance to be knighted – including some of the best-loved actors, musicians, artists, writers and inventors – for varying reasons, some to much acclaim, others to much criticism.

The majority of rejections have been made privately, although there are a select few examples whereby the person has »

Spectre: New Official Images Of Batista & Lea Seydoux

10 hours ago

empire

In the new issue of Empire magazine there’s a fairly light and fluffy piece on Spectre, the new James Bond movie. It’s accompanied with some new pictures though, and Empire’s website brought a couple of them online for us all to ooh an aah over.

These show Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx and Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann.

I can tell you that these images both come from the portion of the film set in Austria, though you probably could work that out for yourself by looking through the windows in the background. I will say that this is when Swann joins the story, and Bond doesn’t quite handle the situation too well.

Empire

Bond and Hinx have already met at this point… though those earlier scenes are being shot right now, after the Austria sequence, and there’s still more to shoot in future. »

10 Essential 2015 Video Games You Can Already Own

10 hours ago

Techland

We’re almost two months into 2015, and there’s already been a wealth of great titles for gamers to sink their teeth into. The PC has had a number of exciting, highly anticipated indie games out, with many showing up their Aaa cousins. Meanwhile, the Xbox One and Playstation 4 are starting to build up a respectable library, while still awaiting some of their biggest releases later this year.

Last year proved itself to be a rather shaky year for gaming, with big budget disappointments (we’re looking at you, Destiny and Watch Dogs) and ever-growing concerns surrounding oppressive Dlc and pre-order bonuses. Fears of this continuing into 2015 are justified, although it’s hard not to get excited when titles like Metal Gear Solid V, The Legend of Zelda Wii U and Witcher 3 are on the tantalisingly close horizon.

Neill Blomkamp Offers Clues As To How His Alien Movie Will Fit Into The Series

10 hours ago

Jacques Brinon/AP

What makes Sky Movies’ interview video with Sigourney Weaver and Neill Blomkamp particularly interesting is that they’ve now made it private. Is this just an embargo thing, or has somebody taken objection to what was said within?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th8os-IfZhg

When that video was live – and maybe it will soon be live again, or perhaps it will vanish forever – it featured a very brief clip of Blomkamp saying that his new Alien movie is a “genetic sibling” to Alien and Aliens. He even went so far as to say “So it’s Alien, Aliens and then this movie.”

Which would seem to imply that this would be the third film in the narrative order. It’s not definite this is what he meant – that list isn’t necessarily a chronology – but I can see why people would read it that way. »

5 Reasons You Need To See Power/Rangers

10 hours ago

Joseph Kahn

When it was first broadcast over twenty years ago, The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was an undeniable success. An American production remodelled around the original Japanese Super Sentai series, it continually revamped itself under a number of names. Still going with the same continuity to this day, Power Rangers Dino Charge is the current incarnation.

A highly recognisable part of 90s pop culture, it has been parodied and honoured many times before, including the youtube sensation Mighty Moshin Emo Rangers. This week saw the release of the latest tribute, the short fan film called simply Power/Rangers, which has already taken the internet by storm. The idea behind it was simple: take a ridiculous children’s Saturday morning TV show, and try and make something more realistic.

Less than 24 hours after its release on video hosting site Vimeo however, it had been chosen as a ‘staff pick’ but »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About WWE In 2001

10 hours ago

WWE.com

2001 will forever go down in pro wrestling history as one of the most monumental years ever. The spluttering Ecw finally gave up the ghost, going out of business and leaving a lot of people in the red, being owed millions by the hardcore promotion. In addition, World Championship Wrestling left behind a legacy which had nearly forced Vince McMahon and his WWF out of commission, and it must have been an almighty boost for the infamous McMahon ego when Vince was able to buy his competition.

So much happened throughout the year, including an ill-fated Steve Austin heel turn at Wrestlemania X-Seven, one which Austin himself says he wished he had never agreed with, instead stating he should have “called an audible” before shaking McMahon’s hand, hitting him with a Stone Cold Stunner instead. Chris Jericho ended the calendar year by becoming the first ever Undisputed Champion, »

Batman: Arkham Knight – 10 Huge Plot Details Revealed In February 2015

10 hours ago

Rocksteady

Are you fully strapped into the hype train? Because it’s already been one hell of a ride, with quite the roller coaster-style track laid out ahead.

Not only are Rocksteady throwing out all manner of pre-order/deluxe bundle deals giving away spoilers for Batman’s fate (if you choose to believe the Dark Knight himself bites the big one thanks to a certain tribute-statue of course) but alongside the recently-released Arkham Knight #1 comic that bridges City and Knight, things are heating up considerably for the big finish.

Following the incredibly drab The Order: 1886 there aren’t a whole lot of titles worth writing home about, leading to everyone’s collective eggs being placed firmly in the Bat-basket. Luckily for us, it just feels like Rocksteady know exactly what they’re doing, and with every step towards that June release date making the anticipation close to unbearable it’s »

9 Insane Injuries Actors Suffered To Win An Oscar

11 hours ago

Focus Features/Universal Pictures

If this year and every other year before it is any proof, the Oscars can be difficult to predict. Take the Best Actor category in 2015: back in spring 2014, everyone thought Timothy Spall – coming off the back of a Cannes win for Mr. Turner – would be the eventual winner. He wasn’t even nominated.

Then, for a time, Foxcatcher’s Steve Carell – after Cannes saw him make a significant transformation back in May – then Birdman’s Michael Keaton were the obvious winners of award. On the night, however, they were both pipped to the post by plucky English upstart Eddie Redmayne.

Aside from Redmayne giving a superb performance in The Theory Of Everything, there’s another good reason why the actor came to take the prize: he suffered for his art. You see, if there’s one thing you can predict at the Oscars, it’s »

8 Times Doctor Who Characters Went Nude For No Apparent Reason

11 hours ago

BBC

You’d think that a show like Doctor Who, airing on or around 7pm on a Saturday night, would be pretty PC but it’s still managing to find ways of creating a stir. More often than not it’s because the Doctor has kissed someone again – *sigh* – or the Master’s gone and done something super crazy like regenerating into a woman (the BBC are still trawling through those letters…).

Yes, as long as the Time Lord remains at the universe’s helm as its coveted defender, there will always be something for people to complain about. After all, what’s the point of a TV drama if it isn’t going to spark and encourage debates? Not that Doctor Who fans need any more encouragement, but that’s neither here or there.

But what happens when the Doctor gives us a good reason to moan? Since its »
