How Netflix's Cowboy Bebop Captures the Spirit and Style of the Original

Writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach wants to get one thing straight: Of course Ein is a corgi. A rumor went around last year that the Netflix show cast a husky as the data dog, which was later debunked. After all, when it comes to adapting Cowboy Bebop, there’s only one rule to follow.Read more...

X-Men: Evolution Is the Mutant Cartoon You Should Be Bingewatching Right Now

Look, I get it. We all went onto Disney+ the minute we could and collectively shredded in the most radical fashion by loading up X-Men: The Animated Series and listening to a truly killer Whitney Houston riff. We’re all Children of the Atom, and Children of the ‘90s, at heart. But we could’ve been doing something more…Read more...

Every Disney Animated Musical's Best Song

Disney has produced dozens of animated musicals over the decades, with hundreds of songs in their repertoire. It might be hard to quantify the best songs Disney has ever made (although the answers can probably be found on The Little Mermaid soundtrack), but we can give an opinion on which songs are best from each film.Read more...

Robert Zemeckis’ animated/live-action hybrid noir murder mystery broke boundaries of filmmaking technology and technique, and 32 years later it’s every bit as fresh, warm, and funny as it ever was.

Before Subscribing to HBO Max, Nerds Might Want to Take a Closer Look

HBO Max finally launched today. While it’s too early yet for a full review (stay tuned) it’s not hard to get a quick look at what’s on offer and make a decision or two if you have very specific streaming needs. What’s clear is that if you are a fan of the decades of content made from the DC Comics universe, you should…Read more...

Ahsoka Tano's Star Wars Story (So Far)

First, there was Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Then there was Star Wars Rebels. Then, miraculously, there was Clone Wars again. The story of Ahsoka Tano has been closed and reopened many times over her growth into one of Star Wars’ most beloved heroes.

She-Ra's Major Catradora Moment Had to Come From a Place of Healing and Forgiveness

Each season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power explored different aspects and forms of love as its massive cast of characters clashed, made up, and chose their sides in the larger battle for the fate of the universe.

She-Ra's Noelle Stevenson on the Final Act: Adora’s Struggles, Catra’s Heart, and Shadow Weaver

After five seasons of will-they-won’t-they, epic battles, and saving the world from utter annihilation, She-Ra gave essentially every character both what they wanted and needed.

Harley Quinn Finally Did the Thing, and Did It Right

As bloody, curse-laden, and generally bawdy as DC Universe’s Harley Quinn show is, it’s always displayed a surprising level of emotional intelligence in the way that it’s handled the complicated, interpersonal relationships that have shaped the lives of its characters. Read more...

Here’s what SpaceX and NASA’s crucial Crew Dragon mission should look like on May 27

SpaceX and NASA are planning a triumphant return to American human spaceflight on May 27, with the SpaceX Demo-2 mission for its Crew Dragon spacecraft. This is the final step required for Crew Dragon to become certified for human flight, after which it’ll enter into regular operational service ferrying people (and some cargo) to the International Space Station on behalf of the U.S. and some of its allies.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power's Final Season Is Strong, Brave, and Damn Near Perfect

In a post-Game of Thrones world, it’s hard to get your hopes up. Shows can spend years building toward something, only to let you down. It’s taken two years and five seasons to bring us to the end of Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, and I cannot imagine a better way for it to go out. Read more...

Solar Opposites Would Like to Remind You How Patently Trash Humanity Is

It’s better if we just get this out of the way now: Yes, Solar Opposites is an extremely Justin Roiland joint, but to call it a Rick and Morty knockoff is to miss the point of the show, which is to dunk specifically on humanity, rather than existence as a whole. See? They’re different. Ish.Read more...

There's a Canonical Star Trek Show Happening During Lower Decks, You Just Aren't Watching It

Star Trek fans might be forgiven for thinking that its upcoming return to the world of animation’s more light-hearted tone means that Lower Decks won’t take on the dramatic weight of being prime-timeline canon. It’s kind of what some Star Trek fans do with literally anything they’re uneasy about when it comes to Trek.…Read more...

The Midnight Gospel's Dark Reflections on Reality Have Become Therapeutic for Me

If you’re reading this, then you know io9 wholly endorses podcasts of all varieties, as they’re an art form that brings people together and encourages listeners to open their minds.

In the End, The Clone Wars Asks Us—and Itself—to Let Go

Twelve years. A movie. Seven seasons. A death (or two), and a return. It feels like it’s been a lifetime since Star Wars: The Clone Wars asked us to welcome it into our hearts and the galaxy far, far away.

Max Q: Countdown to a return to US astronaut launches

Last week was a fairly busy week in space news, but the dominating story was preparation for the first-ever Commercial Crew launch that will actually carry human astronauts to space. This is, in many ways, the culmination of years of work and billions of dollars spent by partners NASA and SpaceX on their part of the Commercial Crew Program. On May 27, SpaceX will launch two NASA astronauts on a demonstration mission to the International Space Station, and this week saw a flurry of activity to...

The Clone War Is Over, But Clone Wars Isn't

Long have we waited for this moment. Now that it’s upon us, in its final hour Star Wars: The Clone Wars has laid to bare its thesis: In a galaxy far, far away, where now nothing can be as it was for the show’s seven seasons, only one thing remains that matters. One thing that was, really, all that ever mattered.Read more...

The Jeff Bezos -founded space company chose to deliver a bid that included a space industry “dream team” of subcontractors, including Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Draper, and its Artemis Human Landing System will use the expertise of all three.
