Over the course of 28 seasons The Simpsons has had a chance to not only pay tribute to famous actors and singers, but also the very shows that are on along with it. And in three decades that’s a considerable menu of shows. Some more notable ones from my younger days would include a crossover with the show The Critic, King of the Hill, and even Rick and Morty. To make an entire list would take an eternity. One of their best ways to pay homage to other shows as been the “Couch Gag.” Basically in the opening into to

I love Mike Judge. I mean, Beavis And Butt-head was my childhood. I remember staying up late at night watching them riff on 90s music videos (my favorites being the time they reminisced about the fake cop show in Beastie Boys' Sabotage video, or the time Beavis freaked out about that weird "The Bubblemen are Coming" video). I then continued with King Of The Hill when it was on... Read More »

If I’m honest I’d forgotten all about the Moto Racer franchise and with good reason, it’s been over 15 years since the third game was released (although there was apparently a Nintendo DS version of the game from the same developers as this). Since then motor racing games have come a long way – be it as side-scrolling stunt games a la Trials HD; or more arcade titles like Mx vs. Atv, another survivor of the PS2 era that has been resurrected (somewhat successfully, at least in terms of gameplay) by Thq Nordic; and even motorbike simulations like Ride 2 and Valentino Rossi: The Game – which means Moto Racer 4 has a lot of ground to cover.
Developed under the supervision of the original Moto Racer designer Paul Cuisset, Moto Racer 4 delivers high-speed races and a white-knuckle ride that gleefully ignores the rules of fair play in favour of ruthless »

We missed this over Christmas, but it turns out there was some progress with regards the, er, Bad Moms movie universe. Following the success of the first film last summer, with Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn leading Bad Moms to box office glory, Stx announced Bad Dads. This didn’t go down too well, given that the DVD shelves of pretty much any store aren’t shy for films of men behaving badly. Bad Moms actually felt a bit fresh for not going down that path.

Back in 2011, Warner Bros seemed to be on the cusp of getting its DC movie universe together. The Dark Knight Rises was a year away from release, plans were coming together for the Superman reboot that would become Man Of Steel.

As the New Year arrives, we salute a few favourite TV episodes depicting this momentous time of year...
New Year is a time for reflection on the past and resolution for the future, an opportunity to consider what you’ve achieved and what you’re yet to work on. It’s also a time to stay up well past midnight, partying the night away with friends and family, potentially embarrassing yourself in the process. That dichotomy ensures that the New Year is fertile ground for television, and the finest comedies and dramatic series use the moment to allow for contemplation amidst the alcoholic excesses. Here are twenty New Year episodes that offer an entertaining take on the aeons-old celebration - from emotional character pieces to geeky genre takes and old-fashioned barrages of seasonal comedy.
