The Flash Goes Bowling In These Images From The Next Episode Out Of Time

fb share tweet share

FlashThe CW’s adaptation of DC Comics classic The Flash has been consistently fun throughout the course of its freshman season. It is, however, in the middle of an extended break, but it will be back just in time for St. Patrick’s Day on March 17. The next episode is titled “Out of Time,” and a slew of new stills from the return have hit the airwaves.

If you’re caught up, you know things are going to get rough for the team from S.T.A.R. Labs. The reality of Dr. Harrison Wells’ (Tom Cavanaugh) intentions, as well as his still-unclear role in the death of Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) mother, is getting harder and harder to hide, and it keeps coming closer and closer to the surface. When this truth comes to light, the betrayal is going to be hard for Barry, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) to deal with, as they all look at him through rose-colored glasses.

The CW’s The Messengers Introduces The Angels Of The Apocalypse

fb share tweet share

With the likes of The 100, Arrow, and The Flash, The CW has put together a surprising strong line up of genre shows. And if you’re into vampires, they’ve got you covered on that front, too. Over the next few months, they’re looking to add even more with new shows like iZombie set to debut. One of their more interesting looking additions is the apocalyptic drama The Messengers, and the network has released this quick new trailer to tease the premiere.

This video gives you the basic set up of the series: there’s some kind of mystery comet or asteroid or something that crashed to Earth, apparently killing a handful of people. Only they don’t stay dead and are resurrected in order to fight the devil, yes, like the devil, devil, as that one kid says. That’s a tall order for anyone, let alone the recently deceased, and this footage introduces you to the so-called Angels of the Apocalypse.

These Last Man On Earth Clips Are As Funny As They Are Sad

fb share tweet share

It feels like it’s been coming forever, but this weekend most of us will get our first opportunity to watch Fox’s new comedy, The Last Man on Earth. What we’ve seen so far looks pretty damn entertaining, with Will Forte playing the title character, roaming the remnants of the planet alone, trying to fill his days. In anticipation of the debut, Fox has released a new promo, some clips from the show, and a quick behind the scenes look at the series.

You get the sense in this promo that the title may be somewhat misleading and that Phil (Forte) may not actually be the dictionary-definition last living person on Earth. You see a hand holding a gun, hear an off screen voice, and, if you’ve checked in on IMDb, you’ll notice that at least a handful of other actors who show up in multiple episodes. So if you’re a stickler for truth in show titles, there may be an issue.

This Kickstarter Aims To Bring Robotic Combat Back To The Masses

fb share tweet share

robogamesRemember Robot Wars from back in the day? Actually, there were a few—the 1994 U.S. series in San Francisco, a British game show first broadcast on BBC in 1998, and then a Nickelodeon version featuring kids driving the robots in 2002. All of these shows gave rise to SyFy’s Robot Combat League (which features humanoid, mecha-ish robots, and is by far the weakest of them all). Anyway, robots have been fighting each other for human entertainment for a while now, but unless Robot Combat League gets another season, there’s a dearth of these shows available at the moment. But all that’s about to change—RoboGames is coming to a computer near you.

RoboGames, created by the Robotics Society of America in 2004, bills itself as the “Olympics of Robots.” Competitors from all over the world compete in over 50 different robot fighting events, including Kung-Fu, Lego robots (including Lego bowling!), bartending, painting, and weight lifting—basically, if it’s something a robot can do, it’s an event. The games are held every year, and have aired on the Science Channel and on Discovery, but thanks to a successful Kickstarter, we’ll soon have access to a bunch of new mech combat, this time, in the form of a new independent web series.

Kate Upton Makes Zero Gravity Tantalizing For Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

fb share tweet share

kate uptonAll right guys, I think it’s time that we put aside our thinking caps for a little while and focus on pure instinct. Some may feel the urge to get really high class when looking at photos of boobs floating in zero gravity, but that’s not the case here at GFR. We don’t think perversion should be tied down by laws posed by Isaac Newton, who probably never even pictured nipples on the apples that supposedly inspired his discoveries. And so we present a series of pictures and videos devoted to Kate Upton’s zero-G photo shoot for the recently released Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Speaking of sports…balls. Okay, so maybe I’ll put the thinking cap back on for a few minutes longer.

Machinima’s Enormous Web Pilot Adds Three Human Survivors

fb share tweet share

enormousHere at GFR, we never tire of robots of a certain size that like getting their freak on. But we’re also more than happy to allow humongous monsters to make themselves at home, though we ask that they wash their feet off in a lake before coming inside. The upcoming 10-minute web pilot Enormous, a live-action production from gamer network Machinima, has doubled its cast of up-and-coming actors as it advances towards production.

Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Tim Daniel (The Walking Dead Survivors’ Guide), with art from Mehdi Cheggour (Heavy Metal), Enormous takes place after an ecological catastrophe allows gigantic monsters to come into our world and take over. No match in size, humans are relegated to the role of smarter-than-usual supper. The three new cast members fighting the fleshy resistance are Erica Gimpel, Steve Brand, and Ceren Lee. If the names don’t immediately strike you as familiar, their faces will.
