File this under YAAAASSS: The computer game series Myst is getting a TV show and a new game for tablets along with it.
Cyan, Inc., the company that produced the Myst game series, is teaming up with Legendary to produce the show. For reference, Legendary is partnered with Warner Brothers and is the production house behind movies like “300,” “The Watchmen,” “Inception,” “Sucker Punch” — you get the idea. Visually fantastic films. They have a TV division that’s been largely inactive other than acquiring other TV production houses, but now they’re developing Myst, and that makes me very, very happy.

In the event you’ve been sleeping entirely too much, look no further for a solution–we’ve got one right here! Well, three actually. The new “American Horror Story: Freak Show” promos have just been realized by FX, and they are great. And by “great” I mean “I’m super creeped out, which is probably the desired effect but BRB, I need to go cuddle something soft for a little while.” Read more on The Gloss…
The tears will come, my friends, and they will be plentiful. Tonight marks the Season 10 finale of “Grey’s Anatomy,” and I, for one, am dreading saying goodbye to Cristina Yang. The show has had some pretty memorable exits from fan favorites like George, Izzy, Lexie, Denny (OMG tears for days) and Mark to name a few, but THIS one … ugh. This one will be brutal. Not only has Cristina, played by the talented Sandra Oh, been a series regular from the very beginning, but she’s become “our person.” We love her snark, wit and brains, and WHAT WILL MEREDITH DO WITHOUT HER?!
Thankfully, as emotionally unprepared as I am for this episode, I’ll have all of the Twitterverse to lean on (if I can even see what’s going on through my snot face).
At 9 p.m. EST, tune in to “Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC and be sure to follow The Frisky on Twitter if you’re not already! Use the hashtag #MyPerson to join in on our (and the world’s) conversation about the episode.
See you then…and bring the scalpel. It will be needed to remove my aching heart.
The Dock Street Brewing Company in Philadelphia is churning out a special “Walking Dead”-themed beer. In fact, it’s so authentic to the series that it has real brains in it. Roasted goat brains, in fact. Keep reading »
Admittedly a cappella is not for everyone. For those of you who are suffering from “Breaking Bad” withdrawal (all of us), have a listen to this a cappella cover of the show’s theme song. The Warp Zone, the group of comedians behind the video, have done the same for theme songs of shows like “Doctor Who” and “Game of Thrones.” And they do it in costume! Have a listen? [Laughing Squid]
It’s about time Bob Dylan released a music video for “Like a Rolling Stone,” which only came out, oh, nigh 50 years ago. Is it possible that he could have been working on this very thing for the past 48 years? Possible, sure, but not likely. The interactive video, which I imagine is the first of its kind, allows viewers to use their keyboards or cursors to scroll through numerous channels, each of which mimics a TV format and features a different TV personality lip-syncing the lyrics to you. Mesmerizing! Even more channels will eventually be added to the video, said Yoni Bloch, the CEO of digital agency Interlude (who created the project), noting, “you’ll always miss something because you can’t watch everything at the same time.” [via Mashable]
