Mama Fisi's picture

Wow, the geek sites are just lighting up over the viral video put out by a company calling itself HUVr that purports to having created a genuine hoverboard, like the one seen in Back To The Future Part II.  Considering that next year, 2015, would be the year to when Marty and Doc went into the future to "do something about Marty's kids," it's fitting that hoverboards are now back in the public consciousness.  And a little easier to fake--er, make--than a time-travelling DeLorean.

The Walking Dead: "Still" (Season 4, Episode 12)

The title’s right. This one was still, too much so. It’s the first episode of this half-season that fell kind of flat for me. Part of the problem is that it focused on Darryl and Beth, two characters who bring issues to the table for what the script was trying to do. Having Darryl be ornery doesn’t work anymore because we already know that deep down he isn’t. Having Beth do much of anything doesn’t work because they’ve yet to make her interesting. This episode included.
