Don’t get them wet. Don’t expose them to bright light. Don’t feed them after midnight. But do give them an animated series. Yes, that’s right: a Gremlins animated series is currently in the works for the WarnerMedia Streaming Service. The series would be a prequel, following Mr. Wing, the old man who was in possession of Gizmo the Mogwai at the start of Gremlins. In the show, a young Mr. Wing will set out on adventures with Gizmo. And one can assume at some point, Gizmo eats chicken after midnight and a bunch of gross gremlins explode out of his back.

In this edition, a video essay pinpoints an apparent problem found in the movies of the DC Extended Universe.
