River Song is Coming Back to Doctor Who—But Not in the Way You'd Expect

by James Whitbrook

Classic Doctors, New Monsters...

River Song has become a bit of a controversial figure on Doctor Who—even the fans who like her aren’t sure they want her to return to the show. But while River isn’t back on the TV show for now, she is making the leap to Doctor Who audio plays. And this time, she gets to have adventures with classic Doctors.

Green Day: Rock Band Export Offer Expires Soon

Harmonix has offered a warning to Rock Band junkies via its official forum that the export offer for Green Day: Rock Band will only be available until April 30. If you own Green Day: Rock Band and want the tracks from the game to be available in your main Rock Band library (and haven’t exported them in the past five years) you should act now, lest you feel like a chump later.

As with previous disc exports and the small minority of DLC songs Harmonix has been unable to re-secure licensing for, players who have already exported Green Day: Rock Band will be completely unaffected. The tracks will remain in your central Rock Band song library for you to continue having a blast with.

Person of Interest: "Search and Destroy" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow...

Despite the fact that Reese and Finch probably should have immediately suspected Samaritan's invisible hand in the plot to dox and discredit an antivirus software genius' life and legacy, "Search and Destroy" was some damn fine POI.

Samaritan's ferocious foot soldiers came out to play toward the end, but before that, before everything spiraled into a massive shootout in the woods (complete with Root vs. Martine: Round 2!), Samaritan decided that it should be the one to take care of Khan (guest star Aasif Mandvi). By dissolving his life within a matter of hours and then cyber-routing him into Rikers Island for a quick, clean execution at the hands of a random incarcerated slimeball.

Studio: Star Trek 3 to Be More Like Guardians

what0080

Oh...WHY!?

Paramount Pictures reportedly wants Star Trek 3 to feel more like Guardians of the Galaxy.

Roberto Orci recently departed the film as director, though he will retain a producer credit on the sequel. Trek 3 was to be his directorial debut after writing and producing the first two movies, but Badass Digest reports that his leaving the center seat may have been due to Paramount's wish to make the film resemble the Marvel blockbuster Guardians.

"They want the third film to be huge, and they want it to be huge overseas especially," says the site. "They look at Rocket and Groot and then they look at Keenser and they wonder why he doesn't have more of a role."

Pink Power Ranger Dons Costume, Sings in Public

what0080

40-odd years and she STILL looks amazing in pink...

Earlier this week, Amy Jo Johnson -- better known as the original Pink Ranger on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (and my first crush) -- got back into her iconic Ranger suit, grabbed her guitar and performed on the streets of Toronto!

It's morphin' time! It's morphin' time!

I know what you're thinking: How could something this awesome actually happen? Well, as it turns out, Johnson is currently crowdfunding her directorial debut, The Space Between, on Indiegogo, and the original Blue Ranger David Yost challenged her to wear her Pink Ranger outfit and sing in public if she reached her goal of $75,000. Luckily, Johnson reached her goal early and morphed into the Pink Power Ranger one last time -- and (no surprise here) she still pulls off the pink spandex!

This Is the First Weekend in America With No Saturday Morning Cartoons

Saturday morning American broadcast TV was once animation's home field. Filling a cereal bowl with artificially colored sugar pebbles and staring at the tube was every kid's weekend plan. Not any more: For the first time in 50-plus years, you won't find a block of animation on broadcast this morning. It's the end of an era.

Why Ahsoka Tano is the Best Thing to Happen to Star Wars in 20 Years

Why Ahsoka Tano is the Best Thing to Happen to Star Wars in 20 Years

Tomorrow, Lucasfilm will release final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Netflix, but the season won't include an arc centered on one of the show's main characters, Anakin Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano. That's a shame, not just because Ahsoka's growth has been one of the most compelling aspects of the series, but also because her character development has wildly improved the onscreen arm of the Star Wars franchise.

​Goodbye, Harold Ramis. You Were a Hero to Nerds Like Me.

Early on in Ghostbusters, Peter Venkman gets slimed by a class five full-roaming vapor. His colleague Ray finds him lying on the ground, groaning and covered with snotty green ooze. "I'm with Venkman," Ray breathlessly natters into his walkie-talkie. "He got slimed!" "That's great, Ray," Egon responds. "Save some for me."

Okay, DC Comics is straight-up lying to children now

I don't know what young comics fan Spencer expected when he wrote in to DC Comics, his favorite publisher, to ask what DC plans to do now that "Marvel seemingly dominates the live action superhero movie industry?" (His words!) But I bet he didn't expect to get an answer that was pretty much just bullshit.

Why you should really stop washing your hands with hot water

Why you should really stop washing your hands with hot water

Sure it feels nice, but it's no more effective (not at temperatures safe for humans, at least), and can actually irritate your skin. Plus, if you're washing with hot instead of cool, newly published research says you're actually contributing to global warming, too (womp womp).

Transformers: Age of Extinction First Film to Feature Full 3D IMAX

Courtesy of an interview on /Film.com, we now know that Transformers: Age of Extinction will be filmed in full 3D IMAX, the first movie to feature the new type of shooting. Check out the whole interview with IMAX executives here, and check out the relevant robot snippet below!

Up until now, every feature film shot in full IMAX (of which there have been only a handful – The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Dark Knight Rises, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Star Trek Into Darkness and now The Hunger Games Catching Fire) has filmed with a 65mm 2D IMAX film camera. IMAX has a 3D film camera available, but most filmmakers find it too big and loud to actually use. (Star Trek Into Darkness is the only of those films to be exhibited in IMAX 3D, but it was post-converted.) It wasn’t until recently that IMAX created a 3D digital camera, which will allow 3D capture in full IMAX. The first filmmaker to use that is Michael Bay on Transformers: Age of Extinction. That camera is much smaller and lighter than the other IMAX 3D cameras and will be used quite a bit in the future. There is no 2D digital IMAX camera, but one is being developed.
