Bif Bang Pow! Enters ‘The Twilight Zone’ With New 3.75″ Action Figures

Twilight Zone Action Figures Bif Bang Pow

If you like sci-fi at all, chances are you've seen at least a dozen episodes of The Twilight Zone, if only to understand all the references to it in wider pop culture (or, simply older episodes of The Simpsons). If not, well, you're just as bad as my entire fourth grade class circa 1995 that stared at me blankly when my glasses fell off in the school library and I laughed and proclaimed, "It's not fair! It's not fair!" I don't blame them -- we didn't have Hulu back then -- but it still would've been nice to be able to explain my  joke by pulling a black and white 3.75" The Twilight Zone action figure of Henry Bemis out of my backpack. That'd totally have worked, right? No? Well this August Bif Bang Pow!, ZICA Toys and David Lee will release a wave of just such figures, anyway.

First Official Photo Of Ben McKenzie As Jim Gordon From ‘Gotham’ Looks Bummed, Mustache-Free

Ben McKenzie Detective James Gordon Gotham main
FOX/Warner Bros.

The rollout of official photos of characters from the new Fox series Gotham continues as actor Ben McKenzie tweeted fans' first look at series star Jim Gordon.

While it appeared Donal Logue's Harvey Bullock will have a little more facial hair than the comics version, Gordon will notably have less. That's right: McKenzie won't be rocking Gordon's signature mustache in the role. He honestly looks a little distraught about it, but hey, Batman '66 Gordon didn't have a mustache, did he? And he came out OK. Chin up, fella.

‘The Walking Dead’ Inspired Beer Has Actual Brains In It. This Seems Like A Fine Idea, Just Fine

Dock Street Brewing Co. Walker Beer

If you had told me yesterday that there were people who read and/or watched The Walking Dead and came away from it thinking "you know, we should try eating brains, I bet that is a really good idea," then I would have called you a dope and walked away from that conversation as soon as I could. And yet, the Internet has proven, as it always does, that I am the real dope here. Philadelphia's Dock Street Brewing Co. has created a new beer flavored with brains. Actual brains. Actual, literal, roasted brains.

To be fair, they're goat brains and not human, but I'm not actually sure that makes it a whole lot better. Besides, there's cranberry in this stuff, and that's just gross.

It’s all smiles on The Walking Dead this week, as lovers reunite, nerds run the world, and Daryl learns a fun new game. That’s okay. After last week’s soul-shearing horror, we needed a break.
