Mystery Science Theater 3000 Just Made Vimeo Your One-Stop Source For MST3K

fb share tweet share

MST3KIn spite of not having aired any new episodes since 1999, Mystery Science Theater 3000 has maintained a steady and devoted fanbase over the years. That’s at least partly due to the show making a home on Netflix and Hulu, thus easily letting a whole new generation of fans discover the show. Episodes have also been available for digital purchase on services such as iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, and Vudu. Now Vimeo has signed a deal with Shout! Factory that will put all 80 currently available MST3K episodes up for grabs at a deep discount on the the online streaming site.

As of this past week, you can purchase all 80 of the currently available MST3K episodes for only $300 — a savings of $500 over what you’d spend if you bought them individually. While dropping three c-notes might seem extravagant in this economy, that is an impressive savings, and there’s another compelling reason to make the investment. Variety reports that the Vimeo deal also gives them exclusive rights to any new MST3K episodes cleared for release in the next year, and Vimeo says a dozen or so episodes are expected to become available in the next 12 months. Here’s the best part: if you do drop the $300 for the entire collection, that purchase price will also get you digital copies of any further episodes distributed between now and September 17, 2016.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Synopsis Hints At The Direction Of The Series

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadSeason 5 of The Walking Dead is shuffling our direction at a gradual, but steady pace. Like that swarm of undead zombies in the distance, it may look a long way off, but it’ll be here before you know it. The cliffhanger nature of the season 4’s conclusion has fans counting down the days until the season 5 premiere on Sunday, October 12, but for all of the hype that AMC is throwing behind the biggest show on TV, we don’t know much about the plot the new episodes will follow. Some of us have theories, but hopefully this new synopsis can shed some light on the upcoming horror jaunt.

As you can imagine, this is a vague description of the upcoming storyline, and they avoid specifics at nearly every turn. Still, if you’re trying to avoid learning anything about The Walking Dead season 5, you might want to sit this one out, especially if you haven’t finished season 4 yet. Like I said, there isn’t a ton of detail, but it might be too much for some of you out there.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Didn’t Use A Ton Of Cool Stuff

fb share tweet share

guardians of the galaxyPart of the fun of making a movie like Guardians of the Galaxy has to be coming up with the outlandish settings and bringing the strange and fantastic characters to life on screen. Though the comics provide a road map of sorts, we’re talking about two very different mediums, and things that work on the page may not necessarily work on the screen, and vice versa. This is basically an opportunity for the behind the scenes creative types to just go nuts, and by all accounts, they did. Now we’ve got a glimpse at some unused concept art, an alternate character design, and a look at a character that missed the final cut.

Warning, there may be minor SPOILERS for the five of you who haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet.

The Walking Dead Fights Back In This Tense New Teaser

fb share tweet share

Over the years The Walking Dead and I have had a troubled relationship. AMC’s hit zombie drama has some things that I legitimately enjoy and appreciate, but then there are aspects that drive me absolutely bonkers (both as a long time fan of Robert Kirkman’s comics and as someone easily frustrated by bad television). To call the massively popular series (a popularity that still baffles me) uneven is an understatement, but even I, with my overwhelming skepticism, find myself getting increasingly excited for the upcoming season 5. My feelings are primarily based on the fact that the last half of season 4 is the best the show has ever been, but badass new promos like this one definitely don’t hurt matters any.

You see quick flashes of the core group of characters stuck intense, harrowing situations, some involve walkers, some do not, but beyond that, you this video drives home that the beginning of season 5 is going to see some serious human conflict. When Rick (Andrew Lincoln) adopts his serious man voice, telling his compatriots that, if they come across one of these people, to kill them, because they’ll certainly kill you, we assume that he’s referring to the people currently holding them prisoner at Terminus. And the way they left things last year, you know that it’s going to get brutal and bloody very quick.

Interstellar Drops A Wet New Poster To Round Out Your Week

fb share tweet share

InterstellarThis has been a big week for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. The last few days have each seen a new poster revealed, and there is even a cool new interactive game where you can build your own solar systems and get a feel for the space elements of the film (that’s kind of an ingenious strategy if you ask us). But that wasn’t all they had in store for us, not even at all, and the picture is back with yet another one sheet to round out the week. Why not, what the hell?

One of the earlier offerings showed star Matthew McConaughey walking around on the surface of what appears to be a distant alien world. This latest addition to your ever-expanding poster collection give you a different perspective on that world, or perhaps takes you to an entirely new one. The plot revolves around a future where global climate change has progressed to such an extent that continued human inhabitation is no longer going to be possible. As such, a team comprised of McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, and maybe some others too, blasts off into space, through a newly discovered wormhole, in order to search for a new planet for us to colonize and eventually fuck up.

Doctor Who Christmas Special Adds A Touch Of Seasonal Frost

fb share tweet share

FrostThe annual Doctor Who Christmas Special is always a big deal. Just last year, it’s where we first met Peter Capaldi’s 12th incarnation of the Time Lord, a rather noteworthy occasion (okay, he first appeared in the 50th anniversary special, but that was a cameo, and we didn’t really get to know him at all until around the Holidays). They’re even fond of bringing in special guest stars to help them celebrate their seasonal adventures, and this year isn’t going to be any different, as they’ve lined up a nice collection of homegrown talent, headlined by Nick Frost.

If you’re unfamiliar with Frost, he’s sometimes considered Simon Pegg’s better half, and has appeared alongside him countless times, though most notably in the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy comprised of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End, as well as many others. He’s a pretty damn good time, and joins fellow British actors Nathan McMullen, who appeared on BBC’s Misfits, Michael Troughton from Breathless and dozens of other series, Fay Marsay (The White Queen), and Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street).
