10 Bizarre Television Conspiracy Theories

The world is becoming a strange place for those of us who don’t watch Duck Dynasty and are only vaguely aware of its mere existence; when this viewer first heard the title, I presumed it was some new variation on the Looney Tunes universe, maybe with Daffy and some nephews? I’m now not only fully aware of what Duck Dynasty is, but of the “secret conservative message” of its protagonists’ unruly beards. Yes, we’ve now seen the true sign of the show’s cultural ubiquity: the inevitable conspiracy theories. Many shows have them (some more than others), and since we know how much you love a good pop culture fan theory, here’s a few of the kookier ones that have attached themselves to popular TV… Read More

The Worst Crossover Episodes in TV History

The world can feel like a lonely place for us, but believe it or not, there are people who do not subscribe to the common wisdom that Family Guy is a delightfully subversive and endlessly uproarious satire of contemporary mores. In fact, there are some who feel that Seth MacFarlane’s long-running, rescued-from-an-entirely-appropriate-grave animated family comedy is witless, unfunny, and (above all, and this point can’t be stressed enough) a blatant rip-off of The Simpsons — a point that we presumed the Simpsons crew shared, what with that whole “Plagarismo” thing. So even after Homer’s brief cameo on Family Guy in 2012, the recent news of a full-on Simpsons/Family Guy crossover is mighty depressing; even at this late point, it still would’ve been nice to think that The Simpsons wouldn’t sink so low. But it sounds like they’ve got the makings for one of the worst TV crossovers ever — and, according to the exhaustive TV continuity tracking site Poobala, there’s plenty of competition for the title. … Read More

What ‘Game of Thrones’ Characters Would Look Like on ‘The Simpsons’

A year after The Simpsons poked good-natured fun at Game of Thrones, a Simpsons superfan has reunited the two beloved TV shows. A Belgian illustrator who goes by the handle ADN uses his Draw The Simpsons Tumblr to re-imagine various pop-culture types, from Veronica Mars to The Weeknd, as Springfield residents. But his magnum opus may be these “Simpsonized” portraits of Daenerys, Jon Snow, Tyrion, and other GoT favorites (spotted via The Mary Sue). And before you get too angry that there’s no Arya, know that ADN has implied that there’s at least one more Westeros-inspired series in the works — which means you should probably follow him to make sure you don’t miss it. … Read More

15 Awesome (And Often Bizarre) Pop Culture-Inspired Video Games You Can Play for Free

The last couple of weeks have seen the emergence of a couple of endearingly strange pop culture-based video games — there’s been news of a futuristic RPG involving Kanye West and a strangely depressing game based on Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” of all things. But they’re just the latest in a long line of weird and wonderful games based on pop culture. Ever since the 1980s, game developers have been making deals to cash in on the popularity of celebrities by featuring them in games, some successfully, some less so. We’ve scoured the web for the best (or at least the strangest) of these games, so click through to check them out — most are available to play online, and if not, you can download them for free. … Read More
