Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

When the first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker debuted during Star Wars Celebration this past spring, fans went absolutely nuts when the return of Emperor Palpatine was teased with his signature evil laugh. But many wondered exactly how the villain would be returning after being chucked down a reactor shaft by Darth Vader. And why was he suddenly returning after seemingly having no presence in the first two installments of the new trilogy? Well, those answers could be coming, because director J.J. Abrams says the Emperor returning in The Rise of Skywalker has been planned since The Force Awakens. Read More »

Rick and Morty Season 4 Premiere Review

After a long wait that felt as excruciating as existence does for a Mr. Meeseeks, Rick and Morty is finally back. If you were worried that the story would get old, or that the toxic, riot-causing fanbase would affect the quality of the episodes in any way, you can put those worries to rest. The season 4 premiere is as smart and funny as anything the show has done before, and it paves the way for a confident future – even if it’s just basically more of the same.

Primal Clip

Genndy Tartakovsky is coming home. The master animator behind Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack and the original Star Wars: The Clone Wars is returning to Cartoon Network with Primal, a miniseries about a caveman and the dinosaur he hunts with. While that premise may sound like something for a younger audience, consider putting the kids to bed before you hit play on this one.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

I have never seen an episode of Rick and Morty. The only impression I have of this series (which plenty of people with great taste have told me is “really good, you should watch it!”) is an unfortunate one involving Szechuan sauce and a viral McDonald’s video. You know the one I’m talking about.
