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...

Asked by one reporter if he was afraid the new film would be another poorly reviewed mess, an upset Bay said, "Your comment is a little insulting to the artists who worked on this. The movie did make a lot of money. I admit it's not one of...

Eighties and Nineties nostalgia are running rampant in pop culture right now. Television networks and film companies are resurrecting TV shows and movies like 90210, Melrose Place, Halloween, and Transformers. This obsession with the 80s and 90s have lead to TV specials and debates about which decade is better. Both provided us with fascinating films to watch, memorable music to listen to, and new forms of entertainment that we still use today. But when it comes to entertainment, which decade was better?

Everything Geeky: Suggestions for Geek Love

Usually whenever someone meets me and learns about my extensive geekdom, they ask how often I get hit on by slobbering geek boys. The answer is: a lot. Let's face it, we geek girls have existed all along, but until the past few years we've seemed more like a mystical creature.

With the rise of video games and comic book movies as "cool" in the mainstream, there have been more girls willing to come out about their love for Guitar Hero or Superman. It's no longer a badge of weird, even to our fellow gals, and it's almost become an attractive feature for a girl to be able to beat you in Wi...

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
This week Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits the theater and all of us who obsessively watched the show in the 80's rejoice. Or cry ourselves to sleep. In any case, I'm actually more excited about the video game version of the movie, and the fact that I just typed those words is a little terrifying.

You see, as any gamer can tell you, most of the time the video game adaptations of movies suck big time. Usually if you check out a list of the least popular games in the world, a great deal of movie-based games will be on it. Why? I'm glad you asked.

Most of the time, the game is ru...
