The Best And Worst Resurrections Of TV Characters

December 18th, 2013 11:07am EST
Family Guy
Brian from Family Guy was resurrected via some time-traveling tomfoolery Sunday night, making him the latest TV character to be brought back from the dead. We can't say we were surprised by his return, considering Family Guy might as well be called "The Stewie and Brian Show" these days. However, it did get us thinking about some of the best and worst resurrections of TV characters…

Worst: Stewie, Family Guy. Let's stick with Family Guy for our first choice. Yes, it was necessary for Stewie to come back to life due to his popularity on the show. However, when Stewie "died" in a computer pr...

Leonard Nimoy Takes On Zachary Quinto In New 'Star Trek' Spock-Themed Audi Ad

Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto Spock Audi ad
Star Trek stars Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto, who have both portrayed the Vulcan Spock in the series and on film, star together in a new ad for Audi that's filled with nostalgic Trek references.

The two stars begin by playing chess against each other on tablets before betting on who can make it to the local country club first for lunch. Loser has to buy.

"Stand by to have your wallet emptied by a tractor beam," Nimoy says.

"Anything's possible," Quinto laughs, "but probably not that."

The two get into their cars -- Quinto eases into his Audi S7 while Nimoy struggles to get his clubs...

Lessons J.J. Abrams's 'Star Trek' Could Learn From Past 'Trek' Films

May 8th, 2009 9:50am EDT
Star Trek XI
It's been over 40 years since Gene Roddenbury's "Star Trek" hit the air, and after ten movies, 703 episodes from five different series, and faltering public interest, it's become difficult to go back to where no one has gone before. Now, four years after "Enterprise" went of the air, the original crew of the starship Enterprise has burst back onto the screen. Directed by "Lost" and "Alias" creator J.J. Abrams, this new installment of the "Star Trek" saga goes back to the beginning when James T. Kirk first slipped on his yellow Starfleet uniform. Still, it hasn't been an easy path for the lo...

Starpulse Writer Rewatches Every 'Star Trek' Film, Picks Favorites - What Are Yours?

Star Trek III The Search for Spock
As a child, I was first introduced to the original "Star Trek" television series and movies by my babysitter, who watched them on TV with me. I've always been a huge fan of all things sci-fi, so I quickly became a follower of Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise.

After that, it didn't take me long to become engrossed in "Star Trek: The Next Generation," which was still airing new episodes at the time. With the thrill of new episodes, I became a bigger aficionado of Captain Picard and his crew than I was of Kirk and the original cast.

While I've never considered myself...

Star Trek
Two weeks ago, Trekkies in Austin were treated to the thrill of a lifetime when, during a screening of The Wrath of Khan at the Alamo Theater, Leonard Nimoy walked onstage and offered to show them the brand-new upcoming Star Trek in its entirety. The reviews that came from this advance preview were, well, explosive, leaving Twitter a melted puddle of geek fangasm, and the rest of the internet collectively quivering in anticipation. Now, early reviews are starting to come in from various publications, including the UK's Daily Mail, which said "[Star Trek] is not only by far the best of the 1...

A Salute To The Head Explosion

September 23rd, 2008 11:40am EDT
Deadly Friend
When it comes to body parts that can explode, your head is ripe for the picking. Not only is it large and filled with goo, it perches atop of your shoulders begging for something to come along and smash it. Movie makers have known this fact for a long time. Nothing quite gets an audience going like a well placed exploding head. David Cronenberg's Scanners probably has the most oft-referenced scene, as it's one of the few mainstream horror films to give us a detailed and goopy exploding melon. Belloq's fate in Raiders of the Lost Ark even goes to show that Oscar winning directors aren't abov...

Ready, Set, Fight: Han Solo Vs. Captain Kirk

August 8th, 2008 9:47am EDT
Captain Kirk
At the beginning of the movie "Free Enterprise" - basically a "Swingers" type movie for science fiction fans - there is a flashback scene where the main character, Rob, is in a schoolyard fight because another student had the audacity to suggest that Han Solo could beat up Captain Kirk. Of course, we don't want any fisticuffs here. Instead, we thought we would finally put this age old debate to rest in order to save yet another school aged kid from detention… or perhaps, more likely, save another 30-something comic con attendee a trip to county lockup. So let's break this down and look at e...
