According to Mel Brooks, the New Star Wars 'Explosion' Could Make Spaceballs 2 a Reality

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

While History of the World Part I might be the most obvious Mel Brooks movie to get a sequel (of course, there being only one of those is part of the joke), Spaceballs has aged incredibly well.

My Eye-Opening Trip To An Anime Maid Cafe 

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

It would be a gross understatement to say that I do not enjoy Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid. The viral winter anime turns my stomach with its nauseating mix of saccharine anime tropes and raunchy fan service. And, on top of that, somebody who is both dear to me and on my apartment’s lease will not shut up about it. So,… Read more...

A New Behind-the-Scenes Preacher Video Shows Off New Orleans and Even More of the Saint of Killers

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Every single bit of new footage we get from Preacher is delightful, in the way that only manic violence barely tethered to reality can be. In a behind-the-scenes video for season two, we get a lot of that. We also get a lot more of the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish). Read more...

We're One Step Closer to Breeding Animals (and Humans) In Space

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Lots of people really want to go to Mars. Some of them want to live on that barren litter box forever, which sounds exciting, but would probably suck.

A New UFO Documentary Suggests Marilyn Monroe Was Killed Because She Knew About Aliens

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Every time someone releases a documentary about UFOs, we secretly hope this is the one with the smoking gun that changes the world and proves aliens exist. Well, we don’t think Unacknowledged does that, but it’s not lacking in fascinating conspiracy theories. Read more...

Have Gravitational Waves Scarred the Fabric of Spacetime?

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Car crashes, nuclear explosions, and even asteroid impacts are relatively puny compared with some of our universe’s other explosive events. Heck, a violent, seemingly infinitely hot explosion is probably what set the whole universe in motion in the first place. So big collisions, like those between black holes many… Read more...

Did you watch all four hours of Twin Peaks: The Return that became available yesterday? Is your brain still rattling around in your skull like mine is?

This Week's Doctor Who Highlighted the Best and the Worst of the Steven Moffat Era

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

“Extremis” was the most unique episode of Doctor Who we’ve seen so far in season 10—but only because, unlike the rest of the season, it felt like an episode we’ve seen many times before from head writer Steven Moffat. For better or worse, it was a reminder of the style that will be forever linked with his time running … Read more...
