Last month we checked out Dr. Moddnstine’s modern PC in a ’90s tower. It turns out that he found a 1978 General Electric CRT TV in the same heap as the tower, and he couldn’t let that go to waste either.
The Trinity Lighted Mirror TV will make sure that you never miss any of the action during your favorite show. Just watch it in your bathroom. This mirror measures 42 inches in diameter and has an ultra bright fluorescent light around it to help with your bathroom lighting.
At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the snazziest TVs boasted HDR and 8K resolution screens. But perhaps the coolest ones at the show won’t ever go on sale. Made by Samsung, these two concept TVs consist of borderless displays that can split into smaller displays.
It’s been a while since we had a Star Trek TV series that was in current production. Sure you can find episodes of past series out there, none of which have caught my attention since Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Hack A Day member Hari Wiguna made a TV and set top box remote control for his dad, who finds it difficult to press the tiny buttons on the original remotes. You’d think it would be a simple matter to make such a ubiquitous device, especially since Hari put only the most used functions on the remote, but it turned out to be quite the challenge.
Anyone who watched TV in the ’90s will remember The X-Files. That was a fantastic show and was one of the most popular on TV. Many fans were bummed when the show left the air. The creators tried to take the franchise to the theater, but that didn’t work out too well.
I was really excited when Gotham first aired. I thought it would be great to see what Gotham City was like before Batman arrived to clean it up. I watched the first few episodes and the show failed to grab me.
Back in the day, I loved to read the Wheel of Time novels by Robert Jordan. Five or six massively thick books into the series they became rather tedious and I eventually lost interest. I’ve always meant to go back and give them another try.
It’s been seven years now since we last stepped into the X-Files universe. I loved the series when it was on TV, but didn’t like the movies much. I’d wager many felt the same way and that is why we never saw another X-Files movie after 2008.
One of the highlights of the week for me growing up was each fresh episode of MacGyver. The only thing that could spoil it for me was a rerun, but I watched them anyway. MacGyver had a one-word name, an epic ’80s mullet and got himself out of jams using his brain instead of fighting or shooting his way out of them.
I love Netflix, even though it has been a while since any new shows or movies I really want to see have landed there. I have tried to watch several of the Netflix originals, and so far, I haven’t really liked any of them.
Remember back when the SyFy channel was the Sci-Fi Channel and they had all those awesome shows on Friday nights? Sci-Fi was the place to watch Stargate: SG1, Farscape, and my favorite, First Wave. There have been some hits from SyFy since it departed from its roots with Battlestar Galactica and some others, but mostly the shows have sucked.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 was taken from us too soon. We all miss the wisecracks and bad movies. Well, Manos: The Hands of Fate must be at work because now it is making a comeback thanks to a deal struck by Vimeo to stream 80 episodes of the series.
As a child of the ’80s, one of the earliest TV shows that I recall loving in grade school was called “The Greatest American Hero.” This was a comedy/action show about a teacher who saw an alien spacecraft and found a suit that gave him superhuman powers.
While at the 2014 HeroesCon, Shawn Scott Smith took these images of a cosplayer dressed up as Prince Robot IV from the excellent comic book series Saga. Prince Robot IV’s elegant yet dorky appearance has made him popular among cosplayers, but this is the first version I’ve seen that has a working TV as its head.
Amazon has rolled out a new ad-supported streaming TV feature that is different from what it offers on Amazon Prime. This new feature is available as part of the Amazon Instant Video app for iOS users.
