On Sept. 13, 2019, ‘Scooby-Doo’ celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first episode. (Photo Credit: Warner Bros.) A flabbergasting 50 years ago, the world was introduced to one of the most unlikely paranormal detectives ever: a great dane named Scooby-Doo, who traveled the world in a tricked-out van with a quartet of human companions, solving mysteries where crabby old men dressed up like ghosts and ghouls to shut down amusement parks or claim family fortunes. Yes, Scooby has been with us for half a century, which is kind…

The secrets of the realm must always be protected, which is why Game of Thrones Season 8 filmed fake scenes to mislead spies and sleuths who are after the final season’s secrets.

LOS ANGELES — Seth MacFarlane has been laying low. Well, by Seth MacFarlane standards, anyway. And that was probably a good call, after A Million Ways to Die in the West (which got a generous 33% on Rotten Tomatoes), Ted 2 (a merciful 42%) and the 2013 Oscars hosting gig (in which he probably dodged a few rotten tomatoes, or should’ve).

The opening shot of the next epic book-to-television fantasy tale could have been taken by a drone on a trip through a sweeping bright green landscape not unlike those we’ve seen before in Lord of the Rings. We weave through mountains, scoping out a world that’s a little worse for the wear but, despite its overgrown state, is beautiful nonetheless. It’s a pretty shot that accomplishes exactly what it set out to do: To say “once upon a time” — this is no small story about to be…

A shirt that could possibly save lives will be put to the test in an upcoming episode of All-American Makers, the Science Channel investment show about technology-inclined inventors looking for investment. Per the show’s rules, products are put through the ringer to determine if they live up to the hype.

What can we expect from the fifth season of Lena Dunham’s Girls? If this new teaser is any indication, the answer is “more of the same” — awkward moments, millennial self-actualization, and, of course, unflinching shots of Dunham’s proudly imperfect body, which takes center stage in this 25-second clip (at least, until Hannah’s mom interrupts her daughter’s reverie, as she is wont to do). Girls returns to HBO on Feb. 21, 2016. Pun-derful Ikea commercial features a dancing panda and is gloriously weird Swarm of bees defend their…
