YouTube is Currently Down YouTube is Currently Down

I went to watch the new trailer for Legends of Tomorrow and found I couldn’t — instead of the imbedded trailer, it was just a random string of letters and numbers. So I went to YouTube and found it inexplicably down. This is, perhaps, the first time YouTube has gone down in decades, where it wasn’t a scheduled outage.

Hypothetical TV: Marvel's Immortal Iron Fist Hypothetical TV: Marvel's Immortal Iron Fist

I will admit it: I was massively disappointed when Netflix cancelled Iron Fist. The second season had been such a massive improvement and I really wanted to see where the stories of Colleen Wing (the new Iron Fist) and Danny Rand (with his new chi-powered guns) went. Hopefully, Disney will pick up the show and give it…

Fuck You, Marvel.

Last week, at New York Comic-Con, Marvel announced that a five issue mini-series, Shadow of Vader, was going to be written by Chuck Wendig. Today, Chuck Wendig announced that Marvel had fired him. Why? Because his Twitter had been “too vulgar and negative.”

Titans will premiere on October 12, which means that DC Universe is upping the advertising for it. So far, the trailers haven’t really gotten much hype from fans, but today, DC released four trailers tailored towards each character.

For some reason, a lot of comic book news dropped today and, unfortunately, not all of it was good. io9 hasn’t covered it yet, so I’ll try to cover everything:

The brilliant Lindsay Ellis has come out with what is perhaps her magnum opus: “YouTube: Manufacturing Authenticity (for Fun and Profit!).” It’s an in-depth look at how content creation on YouTube works, with an interview with Hank Green, and a look at two cake channels.

Iron Fist Season 2 Review and Reaction Thread Iron Fist Season 2 Review and Reaction Thread

Last season, I did an episode by episode review, but since this season was being better received, I decided to just binge-watch it all and review the entire thing at once. And boy am I glad I did.

The First Look at Live Action Doom Patrol is Kind of Amazing The First Look at Live Action Doom Patrol is Kind of Amazing

The Doom Patrol has had many incarnations throughout the years, but the new live action streaming show is going for a mixture of the original team (Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, and the Chief), with an addition from Grant Morrison’s run (Crazy Jane). And now that we have a first image of what they look like,…

How The Last Jedi Defies Expectations How The Last Jedi Defies Expectations

Here’s a video essay that came out right after I made the post, but it’s interesting and important enough that I want people to see it: Pop Culture Detective takes a look at how The Last Jedi subverted expectations in regard to male heroes and female characters in power (and also why there is a lot of hate towards the…

Pop Culture Video Essay Roundup (July-August 2018) Pop Culture Video Essay Roundup (July-August 2018)

I watch a lot of YouTube videos. A lot. So I figured: why not roundup the best pop-culture video essays I’ve found in the most recent weeks so you don’t have to go searching for them?

So What's Going On With the X-Men? So What's Going On With the X-Men?

Marvel recently announced that it was bringing back Uncanny X-Men, starting it off with a ten-part weekly story called “DISASSEMBLED.” But what brought us to here and what have the X-Men been doing up until now?

All You Need to Know About QAnon All You Need to Know About QAnon

If you, like me, had no idea what the fuck a “QAnon” was until recently, then this video is for you: former Cracked writer Cody Johnston breaks down what the “Deep State” conspiracy theory is on his show Some More News in the most hilarious way. By the way, did you know that Donald Trump is somehow President? I know,…

Slender Man and the Horror of Ambiguity Slender Man and the Horror of Ambiguity

Slender Man is a solid B horror movie. There is nothing especially memorable about it, but it’s not terrible either. The problem, however, is that there could have been something great in it. The movie simply was more interested in jump scares than in actual horror.

A Startling Confession A Startling Confession

I’m going to make a confession right now. One that might get me ostracized from the io9 community forever: I don’t like Star Trek: The Original Series.

Hypothetical TV: The Red Book of Westmarch Hypothetical TV: The Red Book of Westmarch

As we get more information about Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series, I began imagining what it might look like. From what we know, the series won’t actually be about the War of the Ring, which is a good thing (you can’t really surpass the movies), but, rather, it will take place before the War, during the Third Age of…
