Our story: 9 deliciously designed Game of Thrones beer labels

Your best comment: The Targaryen sounds like a brew the Klingons would love. — Omen

Our story: Tara, Wesley and 13 other Joss Whedon deaths that broke our hearts

Your best comment: Buffy's mother's death is one I have trouble dealing with. I couldn't watch that episode over again even before my mother died. It was too heart-wrenching, too realistic. All the reactions were real. That episode was clearly written by someone who had experienced that. And it wasn't a strange, supernatural death, either. It was real. It was organic. And the reactions were real. The way Buffy regressed into being a child who wanted her mother, to the visions of the various ways she wished she could have saved her. It's too real. And now, almost six years after my own mother's death, even more than ever, I am certain I can't bring myself to watch that again. — Amanda

Our story: 10 movies better than their TV inspirations (and 11 that sucked)

Your best comment: They do appear in daylight but... they mostly come at night; mostly. — Newt

Your best comment: I like that the picture of Pegg and Quinto is clearly not about Pegg and Quinto. — Fivestyle

"I am the law!"
— Omen

Our story: See a gallery of every Batman movie and TV poster EVER

Your best comment: Kinda disappointed that "Batman Beyond" wasn't represented, but seeing that retrospective was cool. Make me hope that TCM cable channel will show the Batman serials. — Capt. Paul

Our story: 16 sci-fi and fantasy orphans who could use a hug from Mom

Your best comment: Or, if the latest Time magazine cover is to be believed, they may need more than just a hug from their moms. — Grimwinder

Our story: Robert Pattinson recreates Scanners and more in 7 unsettling pics

Your best comment: Does anyone else have trouble not seeing these as parody rather than homage? Then again, I suppose I had the same problem with Twilight vampires. I kept saying, "Wait, they're supposed to be cool? But they're playing baseball in a thunderstorm because they have to hide the sound of the bat cracking! That's idiotic!" — JBH

Our story: As Star Trek 2 filming wraps, Quinto and Pegg share final set pics

Your best comment: Why is a chair and a towel newsworthy? I kind of miss the days of long ago when people didn't even know a movies existed until the first trailer hit the TV screen a month before the release. A chair and a towel - wow. — Rick C
