Theory Time: How Did Sherlock Survive His Fall

In the 2nd season finale of the BBC's hit drama Sherlock, the title character seemingly plummeted to his death as his partner Watson looked on helplessly.

Article Rapping Shop Owners, Item Rentals, and Destroying Evil: Our Review of the New Zelda Game

By Andrew Bridgman / November 15, 2013

Review: The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds

 

What You Need To Know About The Legend of Zelda - A Link Between Worlds:

  • The map is a near identical recreation of the Hyrule from A Link to the Past, for better or worse. It's fun to come back to a familiar world with new twists added to it, but at the same time there's less sense of discovery.

  • You get to rent and purchase pretty much all the big items you would normally get through the course of a normal Zelda game (hookshot, bow & arrow, etc.) at the beginning of the game AND IT IS AMAZING.

  • Instead of having a magic meter and item collecting (set number of bombs, arrows, etc.), you have one single general meter for magic and items that automatically refills AND IT IS AMAZING.

  • A mother and father who seem very worried about the whereabouts of their young child don't seem to be too concerned when you tell them that their child is a magic sage who is now in a dimension separate from our own to help destroy an ancient evil, which is weird.

  • There's a rapping shop owner.

  • REPEAT: THERE'S A RAPPING SHOP OWNER.

Article Star Trek's Uhura Was Convinced To Stay On The Show...By Martin Luther King Jr.

By Andrew Bridgman / January 20, 2014

  

 

While Star Trek is often dismissed as a weird subsection of nerd culture, it's hard to downplay how hugely important it was to society (outside of the convention world) - the series, the brainchild of creator Gene Roddenberry, presented a vision of the future that was almost unheard of at the time (near the height of the Cold War): it was a future that was bright, where the possibilities were endless. It was a future where people of all beliefs, nationalities, creeds, races, and species worked together to achieve great things. It was a future of tolerance and peace. While the rest of the world was expecting the future to be one of burnt skies and atomic fallout, Star Trek said we'd be traveling through space (granted - to 1920's gangster planets and also wrestling with lizard people, but still).

Also, it contained the first scripted interracial on-screen kiss in television history, between Nichelle Nichols' Lieutenant Uhura and William Shatner's Captain Kirk (granted - while both were being controlled by faux-Greek aliens using telekinesis, but still).
