Given the content of Bryan Fuller’s artistically gruesome series Hannibal, it’s hard to imagine it in a humourous way (moreso considering NBC has has lost its appetite for it). However, Hannibal is proved to be quite the comedian in this series of GIFs. Watch as our favourite serial killer/culinarian delivers some cheesy jokes. They’re killer.
Breaking Bad was fantastic and we’re not likely to see a show of that calibre for some time to come. The drama takes its spot in the Guinness World Records 2014 edition as the “highest rated TV series.” thanks to a metascore of 99/100 on Metacritic. That’s almost as good as Heisenberg’s Blue Sky, which you’ll recall was 99.1% pure.
The series may have concluded but the fan love from Breaking Bad goes on. It left such an impression on Budapest-based designer Zsolt Molnár that he spent five months creating wonderfully minimalist posters for each of the 62 Breaking Bad episodes. Relive some of those momentous events after the jump, but be cautious of spoilers if you haven’t seen the show yet.
Game of Thrones has been showered with much praise and attention. Fans have remixed the opening theme tune, re-created the characters out of LEGO, and even compiled a video of only just the naughty bits.
The house sigils have been of particular interest as well, from the minimalist to the seriously cute. They are the inspiration for a new set of posters, this time if popular characters from comics books, TV, and film were part of the noble houses of Westeros.

It’s a city of stars above our heads. The Milky Way is a galaxy that stretches a staggering 600,000 trillion miles from one end to the other. And in this National Geographic TV special, we are taken on a journey through the tumultuous moments in the history of the Milky Way, from the birth of this beautiful spiral galaxy all the way to its eventual death.
One of the images used in the documentary is the 800-million-pixel panorama of the Milky Way created by the Gigagalaxy Zoom project. As grand as the image is, it’s a side-on view of the galaxy that we see and astronomers use all manner of high-tech computer tools to work out what it would like if it were viewed from a bird’s-eye view. Watch part one of Inside the Milky Way below.
