Star Trek Google Doodle
Last week Google displayed a new doodle as a tribute to the anniversary of Star Trek. If you were using Google Chrome or Firefox it was interactive. In case you missed it here's a video of scenes. This is my all-time favorite Google Doodle.
Doctor Who "Town Called Mercy" Clip
Fans Drive Doctor Who Showrunner Stephen Moffat Off Twitter
Doctor Who showrunner Stephen Moffat was on Twitter for a while and was flooded by stupid requests and nitpicks of the show. One day he tweeted "Forgive my ignorance - is there a way to limit who can follow you and Tweet you?" A little while later his Twitter account was deleted. Fans wondered why until Moffat's wife Sue tweeted "For all asking @steven_moffat is well and currently having a family lunch but he's got a huge amount on and twitter was proving a distraction." So crazy fans drove him off Twitter.I'm not sure if this is a knock against Doctor Who fans or Moffat.

No Directors Cut of The Dark Knight Rises
Nuke The Fridge started the rumor that the DVD & Blu-ray of the Dark Knight Rises would feature an extra 30 minutes of footage including Bane's origin story next June. The Geek-O-Meter bumped up on the news until IndieWire confirmed there are no plans for a director's cut. I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Nolan told MTV "I tend to try and weed things out on paper because it's crazy expensive to shoot things that aren't going to be in the film. It also takes up a lot of time and energy. Pretty much with all my films, there are very few deleted scenes, which always disappoints the DVD crowd." Not that there needs to be a new version, but it would have been cool.
