In honor of the recent release of The Simpsons LEGO set, series creator Matt Groening has worked with the toy brick company to develop a special episode titled "Brick Like Me" that airs this Sunday, May 4th.
Omaha based news station KETV decided to take advantage of the incredibly unfortunate similaries between the real-life situation of Mayasia Airlines flight MH370 and the fictional series "Lost" and make a promotion out of it.
Lost is a fictional television show with polar bears, smoke monsters, and mysterious deities on a tropical island, while the 239 people on MH370 are still missing or likely dead. Their families and loved ones are distraught with grief, and authorities are no closer to finding the plane or any remains in the Indian Ocean almost two weeks after it disappeared.
Even comedian Paul Scheer, who hosted the Lost 10-year reunion panel at the Paley Center Sunday night, asked the audience to refrain from asking the show's creators and actors about MH370.
KETV has since deleted the inconsiderate tweet.
Lego artists Alatariel Elensar and Glen Bricker have developed an amazing LEGO set based on the hit TV series, "The Big Bang Theory." Glen and Alatariel need 10,000 votes in order for it to become an official LEGO set, so you can head to LEGO CUUSOO to add your support.
The set represents the living room of Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter, which is the core location of the series. It's filled with geeky details accurate to the show including Sheldon's board, the Green Lantern lantern, the Rubik's cube tissue box, the DNA model, and more!
Artist Henrique Lima has created Mestre Fungo, a strange series of animated GIFs of somewhat disturbing images of people who are melting, crying, smoking, and just plain freaking out. Many of the images were inspired by scenes from movies and television.
With more than 4.2 million downloads per episode, Game of Thrones was the most pirated television show of 2012. However, less than 24 hours after the HBO epic fantasy show's third season premiere, TorrentFreak reported the episode had already been downloaded more than a million times, with one torrent having more than 160,000 simultaneous connections. No torrent has had that many connections since September 23rd, 2008, when more than 144,000 people downloaded the third season premiere of Heroes at once.
TorrentFreak also broke down the locations of the pirates, finding that Australia had the highest piracy rate while London had the highest concentration of pirates amongst major cities. Despite the massive amounts of downloads, the television premiere saw 6.7 million US viewers, despite airing against The Walking Dead's season finale.
