Star Trek: The Next Generation is the gold standard in ’80s/’90s TV science fiction. It proved that the original Star Trek wasn’t a fluke, and that it could age like fine wine, tackling difficult subjects in the best tradition of its predecessor.
However, even the biggest fans of TNG know that there are aspects of the show that don’t compute, and make absolutely no sense to anyone who’s just come to the series via streaming platforms.
Season one must be intolerable to someone trying to watch TNG for the first time, and season two continues to be crazy for most of it. However, even throughout the series, there are plot elements that just ...

A new promo for Syfy’s Superman prequel series Krypton teases the introduction of Doomsday and shows off Brainiac in full costume for the first time. The trailer also previews more time travel shenanigans following the General Zod reveal in this week’s episode.
In the last two episodes of Krypton, the time travel portion of the story has been put on the backburner, allowing the series to focus on the show’s political intrigue elements. However, in the final moments of Wednesday’s episode, “House of Zod,” Colin Salmon’s mysterious character was revealed to be the son of Lyta Zod (Georgina Campbell) from the future. Krypton showrunner Cameron Welsh later confirmed that Salmon’s character is General Zod, known to fans as one of Superman’s greatest enemies.

New plot details for Ant-Man and The Wasp reveal the team’s mission to rescue Janet van Dyne.

Janet went subatomic to take out a missile in the 1980s, and as a result, she ended up being stuck in the Quantum Realm. Hank and his daughter, Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), believed Janet was lost forever; that is, until Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was able to come back from the Quantum Realm.

Remember back when The History Channel carried so much historical content that the focus on Germany history became a running joke with viewers? While it was true that World War II content dominated the company’s airwaves, it was actual historical content with educational merit, which many people tuned in to see.

Sony Pictures and Mattel have tapped indie filmmakers The Nee Brothers to direct their Masters of the Universe adaptation. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was an enormously popular animated series in the 1980s, which is what gave rise to the phrase, “By the power of Grayskull.” With those magic words, Prince Adam would transform himself into muscle-bound hero He-Man, once again ready to do battle with the evil Skeletor. Of course, the He-Man TV show was merely a means of marketing the Mattel He-Man toy line. The Filmation animated series ran for 130 episodes, along the way spawning a female-centered spinoff, She-Ra, Princess of Power.
Then, in 1987, B-movie studio Canon Films took advantage of whatever He-Man ...
