Of all the properties to emerge from the 1980s, few of them have proven as enduringly popular as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. What started as an independent comic in 1984 turned into an animated series in 1987, a feature film in 1990, as well as sequels and follow-up series in the decades afterwards. One of the more recent iterations was the short-lived Nickelodeon animated series, “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” that ran from 2018 – 2020. It was previously announced that the show would be getting a follow-up film, and now we have images of what to…

One of the biggest names in Hollywood throughout the mid ’90s and early 2000’s retired in 2014. Or maybe you did know that and just didn’t care about it. Either way, the retirement period is over as Diaz is coming back to major motion pictures thanks to Netflix’s upcoming film, “Back in Action.” Diaz’s first film was 1994’s “The Mask.” The movie helped solidify her…

Competition between streaming platforms has continued to become increasingly heated over the last several months. While this is nothing unexpected in business, the battle between platforms has seen an increase in news coverage because of everything happening at Netflix. While it’s much too early to consider Netflix down for the count, there is more evidence now to suggest customers aren’t as happy with the platform as they once were. Freestocks on Unsplash According to surveys from Whip Media, Netflix is getting a far more mixed reception than it’s used to. In terms of overall satisfaction, Netflix has dropped 10% year-to-year…

The circle of life moves us all, just as it moves breakfast cereals. From shelf to stomach, to the shelf again, and sometimes to the discontinued list. Who can forget cereals like Kaboom, or Urkel-os, or Kellogg’s Cinnamon Mini Buns? Okay, maybe some of them are pretty forgettable, but what about Oreo O’s or Waffle Crisp? Those are more likely to ring a bell, so much so in fact that Oreo O’s was eventually brought back to shelves. Also, we’re happy to say that Waffle Crisp is back as well. Official Post Website Waffle Crisp dates back to 1996, as…

By this time, we’ve all heard the famous phrase uttered by Jeff Goldblum’s character of Dr. Ian Malcolm in the first “Jurassic Park” film. “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, that they didn’t stop to think if they should.” That statement is now aimed squarely at Taco Bell, and the monstrosity they’ve just created. From the company that brought us taco shells made out of Doritos, we now have a tostada made out of a giant Cheez-it cracker. Photo by Dahyana Yasada R. R., WikiMedia Commons Pictured above are some non Cheez-it tostadas. It’s pretty…

“Love, exciting and new.” Those are the opening lines to the theme song from the romcom, drama, celebrity infested series “The Love Boat.” Over the course of nine years, Gavin MacLeod as the Captain alongside his crew would lead couples to romantic paradise with all the drama and excitement that a cruise would entail. Very much a product of its time from 1976-1985, the show has become something of a relic today. But it would seem that ship has not yet sunk. The Love Boat will sail again as a reality show called “The Real Love Boat,” and will be…

When a television series goes into its final season after a successful run, one can only hope they go out with a triumphant bang. If there were ever a time to pull out all the stops, this would be it. With AMC’s “Better Call Saul” currently in the middle of its two-part final season, surely there had to be some surprises left in store. Safe to say we didn’t anticipate the arrival of television legend Carol Burnett into the “Breaking Bad” universe. Carol Burnett with Stephen Colbert – The Late Show With Stephen Colbert – Official YouTube Channel The multiple…

There are parents who will tell you that they’ll do anything for their children. Give them a kidney, take a bullet for them, etc.. Often times this isn’t even hyperbole; parental instincts run strong. That being said, a Vermont father may have taken this to a new extreme when authorities came to arrest his son. Instead of peacefully complying with Vermont State Troopers and letting the legal process unfold, he decided to threaten them behind the controls of an excavator. On June 14th, in Hardwick, Vermont, the state police showed up at the Tallman family home with the intent of…
