One man's quest to fulfill a childhood dream. God bless 'im. I love stories like this:

My brother reminded me of this commercial that used to crack us up as kids:

Here's a cool behind-the-scenes thing. Apparently there's at least a little bit of real-life science behind the "Zero Matter" seen on Agent Carter:

A Twitter account devoted to cataloging all those helpful signs and labels that were plastered all over everything in the 1966 Batman TV series. Because why not:

What a shame. The Batman show was a huge part of my childhood, and a genuine cultural touchstone. And Yvonne Craig was a big reason why it was so memorable.

Very sad to hear about the passing of prolific tv producer Lou Scheimer. His cartoons, from Fat Albert and Archie, to Batman and Tarzan, were a big part of my childhood. Ty Templeton has a great tribute here:

Thanks for the memories, Mr. Scheimer!

It's nowhere near as "juicy" as the headline makes it sound, but this is a pretty interesting blow-by-blow account of how one of these punditry shows is put together:

Back in the 1970s, legendary comic book dealer and con organizer Phil Seuling made an appearance on the Mike Douglas Show. And another very special guest makes an appearance at the very end...

A recent Jeopardy champ discusses his experiences:

He's got some interesting insights on the nature of the show, and the kinds of contestants who do well there.

(I'm a big fan of the show, and I take the online test every time it comes around. But I suspect if it ever came down to it, I'd be one of those people who couldn't figure out how to work the buzzer, and end up with no money...)

Fans of David Letterman will have likely heard this anecdote before. But if you haven't, it really is the Best. Story. Ever.

If you're a DW fan, there's nothing here you didn't already know, but it's interesting seeing the whole history laid out in one big chart:

I'm surprised these haven't surfaced before. A couple of funny behind-the-scenes videos done at the end of David Tennant's run on Doctor Who:

I loved that show so much: Aeon Flux! The Maxx! Winter Steele! Dogboy!

I have decided that the BBC should make a Lady Spectra & Sparky tv show. And they should cast Alex Kingston and Caitlin Blackwood in it. That is all.

An odd little infomercial from 1964, featuring the stars of Bonanza and Bewitched. They don't make cars -- or commercials -- quite like this anymore.

"Watson has lots in common with a top-ranked human Jeopardy! player: It's very smart, very fast, speaks in an uneven monotone, and has never known the touch of a woman."

I had no idea how much "green screen" and CGI was being used, even in non-sci-fi tv shows:
