Published by under Final Countdown

Go here to see who the best characters on TV are.

Entertainment Weekly opened up a poll on their site asking “Who is the best character on television,” and I absolutely adore who the readers chose as the top choice. I don’t agree with it, necessarily, and I suspect that some Bob’s Burgers Twitter or Facebook groups got involved, but it’s a fun choice, all the same.”

The Final Countdown: Celebrity Talents, Outlander Thrives and 1 TB Xbox One

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see celebrities that are great at something surprising.

“Tom Cruise would probably be a shitty plumber. The truth is, most people are only extraordinarily great at one thing (if that) and celebrities are no different — Shaquille O’Neal was a fine basketball player but would likely not have become famous if he’d focused entirely on acting and rapping.”

The Final Countdown: Spy Films, Comics Crossovers and Twitch Copyright

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the best spy films that aren’t about technology.

“Last month in The Guardian, spy novelist Charles Cumming wrote an essay postulating that modern technology has killed the spy thriller. It’s hardly a new idea, with other writers in recent years pointing out that many of the tools used to create suspense in older films are now impossible when someone can just make a cellphone call, or discover a person’s true identity with a quick Google search. It’s a compelling argument, but one film currently playing in cinemas, A Most Wanted Man, proves that modern technology is no impediment to suspenseful storytelling.”

The Final Countdown: Hidden Messages, Pratt Yearbook and Wii U AC

Published by under Final Countdown

kit kat

Go here to see offensive marketing messages hidden in ad campaigns.

“Advertising executives have to have their thumb on the pulse of pop culture at all times. After all, how else are you going to sell diapers for dogs if you can’t quickly and accurately reference the latest episode of The Walking Dead? But all too often a marketing department will shoot for the “hip” and end up with the “wildly offensive.” Nobody involved in these ads likely had anything but the best of intentions, which is why it’s all the funnier that, with glistening eyes and purity in their hearts, they accidentally wound up endorsing pedophilia and the Nazis.”

The Final Countdown: Character Inspiration, Cobie Smulders and GameStop’s Policies

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see characters that are based on real people.

“Every story you’ve ever watched or read includes characters that are, in reality, based on somebody the writer knew. Nobody can invent a bunch of human beings out of whole cloth, so writers take real people and change their names (note that it’s much more fun when it’s someone the author hated). But you’d be surprised to see how totally out of left field the real-life inspirations often are.”

Go here to see female Marvel characters who could carry their own movie.

The Final Countdown: Ninja Turtles, Game Over and PS Now

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the best and worst Ninja Turtles games ever made.

“The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have had success with pretty much everything they’ve tried. The Turtles have left big two-toed footprints in the world of comics, TV, toys and movies, but ultimately the medium they’re most at home in may just be video games. There have been a lot of TMNT games, almost 50 by my count, and a shocking number of them have been good to great (although there’s been a few turtle turds as well).”

The Final Countdown: Rags to Riches, Rambo and Nintendo Woes

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the best rags to riches movies.

“Everyone loves a good rags to riches story, when someone starts out at the bottom of the world and rises to the top. Some of these tales come from real life, and have been adapted into film. Others are invented by Hollywood itself, and become myth after release. The following films are some of the most classic and beloved examples of our love affair with getting rich, and all can be watched way more than once. If I’ve forgotten any that are close to your heart, feel free to suggest them in the comments.”
