  1. Let’s Go could’ve at the very least put in the cross-generation evolutions...

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      They really didn't want a lot of Pokemon to be viable

  2. I just discovered the Spongebob episode “Primal Pals”.

    It is both disturbing, and freaking genius.

  3. That Snorlax ride looks hella impractical.

    1. Blacklightning


      I like to think Snorlax kinda just flopped down on them and that's where they stuck when it got back up

  4. Let’s Go spoiler:


    After beating Giovanni as the final gym leader, Blue literally just comes along and says he’s going to be the new leader.

    1. Thigolf


      This is my gym now

    2. JosepHenry



      You see this gym

      is mine now

  5. The John Lewis ad is nice and all, but I maybe would have felt a whole lot more touched by the sentiment if it wasn’t the exact same one already being expressed by the very.co.uk advert...

    1. PaddyFancy


      Just some of the vocal minority that the press like to report.

    2. Blue Blood
    3. Earnest-Panda


      @Blue Blood the angriest, most moronic of them all

      Well except the Mail.

    4. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Well to be fair, the replaced music was out of tune... Thought that it was someone for deaf awareness and help, not an ad for a struggling department store.

      @Earnest-Panda Don't forget racist/extremist Daily Express or the anti-LGBT Daily Star... Honestly our newspapers are embarassing that they are allowed to be printed.

  6. If the newest Bulbapedia edits are to be believed, Let’s Go does, in fact, only have the original 151 (plus Meltan and Melmetal) programmed into the game.

    1. Marcello


      Did you think Gamefreak was lying?

    2. Earnest-Panda


      I didn’t know they ever confirmed it themselves.

    3. TCB


      And those with Alolan variants too I presume.

  7. Apparently Green acts exactly like her Adventures counterpart.

  8. Red/Blue/FRLG: the player has to figure out for themselves that they need to give the gate guards outside Saffron City a drink from the vending machines in Celadon.

    LGP/E: Brock just shows up out of nowhere and gives you the drink himself and tells you what to do with it.

    1. Thigolf



      We figured this out as kids, too, Masuda
      It was a really satisfying puzzle
      And that was all pre-internet for us when you just...could look every tiny thing up, which you can now


    2. ThePrinceOfSaiyans
  9. Anyone else happen to be watching the Simpsons on C4 just now?


    1. PaddyFancy


      Oh that one. That episode is nearly 17 years old now.

    2. SupahBerry


      Oh that show outta be blown up by C4 alright.

  10. I dreamt this morning that IDW announced a Sonic Vs Marvel miniseries, and the first issue was Sonic Vs The Hulk.

    1. Forte-Metallix


      Sonic makes a crack about Bruce being exposed to Dark Gaia energy. Hulk retaliates by breaking the planet apart with his bare hands.

    2. Ellipsis-Ultima
  11. I saw the Grinch today. The Jim Carrey one will always be the better one, but this was pretty good too. I thought this one at least had a better story, especially concerning Cindy Lou. But it didn’t really have anything laugh out loud funny.

    Totally worth sitting through a bloody Minions short for.

    1. Earnest-Panda


      Also that was the worst rendition of the Mr. Grinch song I’ve ever fucking heard.

    2. Failinhearts



      mine had no minions short

      i was spared

    3. Forte-Metallix


      Two questions:

      1) Does this film have any Minion equivalents?

      2) Are there any points where the writing gets overly juvenile? (Memes, grossout, etc.)

    4. Failinhearts


      1.) No. There is this reindeer character named Fred who could count for one, but not only is he not intrusive, only appearing briefly for a few scenes before leaving the film, but his involvement actually helps the Grinch's arc and the movie's pacing. So he becomes a good addition rather than a detriment.

      2.) There is a screaming goat that's only in one scene, but that's all there is in regards to anything memelike.

  12. Just to clarify: the version of that Smash commercial with Mr. Fahrenheit is the real one?

    1. Marcello


      You mean the Don't Stop Me Now one? No. The official one has no music. It's weird.

    2. Earnest-Panda


      Huh...now the fact the “make a supersonic man out of you” bit happens right when Sonic shows up is even more bloody uncanny.

  13. Catching up with Riverdale.

    What the fuck is going on...?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      That's...ugh...basically the show in a nutshell at this point.

      The latest episode (a flashback episode with the adults of Riverdale as teens) was pretty good tho.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Ya shouldn'ta did that @Earnest-Panda, ya shouldn'ta did that.

  14. You know what? Jigglypuff shouldn’t be furry. It’s meant to be a sentient balloon creature. It should be smooth and maybe rubbery.

  15. Stan Lee is said to be making a cameo in Ralph Breaks the Internet. I wonder how many more cameos he filmed before his passing?

    1. TheOcelot


      Avengers 4 & Captain Marvel.

      Maybe the new Spiderman movie?

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Bet he's in Into the Spider-verse. He popped up in Venom for pete's sake, he has to be in there 😛

  16. Whatever direction you decide to go with the Pokemon in a live action cinematic movie was always going to come with a downside.

    You either settle on making 3D models of the original cartoony designs and have them look ridiculous in the live action setting, or go the realistic route and realise just how terrifying most of these creatures would look if they really existed.

    1. KHCast


      Wonder how people will take Sonic’s design for his movie judging by the reactions here 

    2. Yeow


      I think they could had gone a good balance of giving them somewhat subtle realistic details in their appearance while still keep them relatively stylized that doesn't entirely break from the games. This movie just goes entirely to the "realism" spectrum IMO, outside of their body proportions.

      @KHCast No need, we already have the fan film


      I'm sure if the Sonic from the theatrical film looks something like this a good chunk of the fandom won't be as shocked as people expected

  17. The two world thing does make me think a potentially interesting conflict that could occur in the IDW comics: after everything Sonic and friends have done for Earth, why didn’t GUN lend their assistance in the war?

    1. Diogenes


      gun's on a whole other planet and probably didn't know shit of what was going on

    2. Forte-Metallix


      They probably don't have the jurisdiction to partake in wars on other planets.

    3. Earnest-Panda


      This begs the question of just how in-touch with eachother the two planets are, and can people actually come and go as they please.

  18. When you want to ask Ian Flynn a question for Bumblekast but you haven’t actually been keeping up with Bumblekast so you don’t know if it’s been answered already.

    1. VEDJ-F


      Just flick through all the videos and look at their descriptions. Since BK#50 he's been putting the questions in the description of the video. 

  19. Has this weeks new South Park episode been involved in some kind of controversy? Because Comedy Central UK just swapped it out for an old episode.

    1. Earnest-Panda


      The last time they did that was with 201.

    2. KHCast


      Doesn’t it have to do something about al gore?

    3. Earnest-Panda


      Yep. They played the first Al Gore episode in its place fittingly enough.

    4. Mayor D

      Mayor D

      By any chance did the actual show have a reference to a mass shooting in It?

    5. KHCast


      The first episode of the new season did 

    6. Mayor D

      Mayor D

      Holy shit... it is the reason they cancelled the episode in the UK.


    7. KHCast


      Yeah in California 

  20. Mother of god

  21. Archie Comics are promoting the new Sabrina TV series by releasing a new printing of Chilling Adventures #1, despite showing no signs of going back and actually continuing the damn thing.




    (Watch the original video too, it’s brilliant)

  23. When you spot an oversight on your latest picture and you’re just told to let it go but you’re internally shrieking your lungs out.

    1. DanJ86


      I know that feeling.

    2. Ferno


      When you do post it and people do notice and point it out and you knew you shouldve held it back for further fixing
