We love television, and we love podcasting, and now we’ve combined the two! Come rewatch classic TV series with us — or experience them for the first time.

The Hypable staff members are all about the latest news and developments within the entertainment industry, but we weren’t Born This Way — classic TV series helped shape our love of good storytelling, and now we want to share our love for some of these shows with you.

ReWatchable is a brand new podcast from the Hypable podcasting team, which will go back and watch the BEST cult shows, episode by episode, allowing fans to re-experience such classics as Firefly, Pushing Daisies, Battlestar Galactica, Lost, Veronica Mars, and many more! And you get to help us decide which one to do second (…cause we’ve already picked our first).

“But what if I haven’t watched the show you’re rewatching yet?”

Don’t worry, we got you covered! ReWatchable will feature a mix of fans and first-timers, which means this is a spoiler-free podcast! So this is your perfect excuse for finally getting around to watching that show all your friends are talking about, complete with insight from people who love the series, balanced with a healthy dose of skepticism from those who haven’t.

“Okay, that DOES sound pretty cool, but who are the hosts?”

ReWatchable is a special podcast because technically, it is composed of ALL the Hypable staff members. You can expect slightly varied teams for each show we cover, although some constants will be sure to cross over. (Podcasting, they just don’t know how to quit you!)

For our first show, the hosting team comprises of seven people, who will rotate out (no more than five hosts will ever be on any given show). You’ll be watching along with Tariq Herzallah, Selina Wilken, Jimmy Bean, Laura Byrne-Cristiano, Karen Rought, Kristen Kranz and Caitlin Kelly – some of who are hardcore fans, and some who have never seen the show before.

“Yay! Those people are all awesome, I’m on board! So what are we watching first?”

The first round of ReWatchables will be for a little show we (and erm, everyone else) like to call Firefly! The team unanimously agreed to start with the classic Joss Whedon show, which is not only hailed as one of the best sci-fi dramas of all time but has also just celebrated its 10-year anniversary – it’s perfect timing! We will be releasing one episode every second week, starting with an intro episode this week that features all of us, and have a mix of discussion episodes and commentaries. We’ll conclude this round by watching the Serenity movie.

“So Hypable, is there anything really important you need to remind us about before you conclude this post?”

Why thank you for asking, hypothetical and enthusiastic Hypable reader, yes there is! As we’ve said before, this podcast is SPOILER-FREE. That doesn’t just extend to the hosts, but to the listeners as well! A part of the fun of this show will be getting to hear the Firefly newbies experience everything for the first time, and that part will be a lot less fun if some overzealous fan lets the word out that they all die it was all a dream Nathan Fillion is a robot unidentified important events take place between now and when the final credits roll.

So whatever you’re super excited about happening in episode three/seven/whatever, just, shh! We’ll get there, and then you can tell us all about how happy/sad/erinaceous you are about it.

…Hypable reader? Are you still there?

“Yes, but I have no more questions, I’m just so gosh-darn excited to get started!”

Good, because so are we! You can listen to the first episode of the podcast now, and subscribe via iTunes, and tell us what you think – we don’t talk about any episodes, so you’ve still got time to dust off your DVD box sets or queue up your Nexflix. The rewatch episode for Firefly 1×01 “Serenity, Part 1” will be released in about a week, and following that the podcast episodes will be released on a bi-weekly schedule.

This show isn’t going to work without YOUR input, but lucky for us, several different ways for you to leave your feedback have magically appeared. You can email us at rewatchable.podcast@gmail.com, tweet us @Re_Watchable, and comment on any of the episode posts! Share your thoughts on each episode of Firefly as we watch it – and don’t worry, we won’t let the newbies see your posts before we’ve made sure they’ve seen the episode you’re talking about. We’ll use some of your comments on the show, so make sure you listen to see if we picked yours.

All good? If you’ve got any more questions, ask us in the comments. And enjoy!

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

With Supergirl entering the Arrow-verse, she will be bringing aliens along — though it remains unclear how her Earth will integrate with Earth-1, where the casts of the other three series reside; Barry visited Kara’s Earth on Supergirl last season when he ran fast enough to open a portal.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

With Supergirl entering the Arrow-verse, she will be bringing aliens along — though it remains unclear how her Earth will integrate with Earth-1, where the casts of the other three series reside; Barry visited Kara’s Earth on Supergirl last season when he ran fast enough to open a portal.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

“We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”

The Dominators

The Dominators, collectively known as the Dominion, are an alien race from the farthest reaches of the universe. A technologically-advanced species who specialize in genetics, their society is extremely hierarchical, with status depending on the size of a red circle that appears on their foreheads.

Invasion! was a major, three-issue crossover event in 1989 that featured the Dominators joining an Alien Alliance to wipe out humanity due to the threat the meta-gene that allows for humans to develop superpowers presents.

When they traveled to Earth, heroes and villains alike teamed up to fight to protect the world. The Dominators were also an enemy of the Legion of Superheroes in the 30th century.

It’s also worth noting that Arrow‘s 100th’s episode will air during the crossover, so we should definitely expect something special.

Are you looking forward to the crossover between ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’?

Hypable’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist

‘Where You Lead I Will Follow’ by Carole King and Louise Goffin

What better way to kick off a Gilmore Girls playlist than with the show’s famous theme song? It’s the perfect opening song. (And if you choose to play it on repeat, that’s completely acceptable.)
 

‘This is Hell’ by Elvis Costello

It makes perfect sense that Jess’ first impression of Stars Hollow would be narrated by this song. After all, the starry-eyed small town life can be kind of overwhelming at first.
 

‘There She Goes’ by The La’s

Fact: This was the very first song played on Gilmore Girls! It accompanied an introductory look around Stars Hollow before introducing our favorite gals. Oh, the memories!
 

‘Then She Appeared’ by XTC

What a perfect song to mark Rory and Jess’ first kiss. It’s perfectly sweet and tender and just oh-so-totally them. It’s hard not to imagine the scene when listening to this song.
 

‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ by The White Stripes

This was one of the songs that Hep Alien played at their very first gig! Sure, it wasn’t really a great night for Jess/Rory or the band, but it started out well enough!
 

‘Reflecting Light’ by Sam Phillips

As if Luke and Lorelai weren’t cute enough together at Luke’s sister’s wedding, they had to go and dance beautifully to this tender song.
 

‘Human Behaviour’ by Björk

What would a Gilmore Girls playlist be without including a song from one of the girls’ biggest inspirations? Just take a listen and think of their famous snow creation.
 

‘Eternal Flame’ by The Bangles

Make one of Lorelai’s favorite bands one of your favorite bands by listening to this track on our Gilmore Girls playlist on repeat!
 

‘One Line’ by PJ Harvey

“I love you, you idiot” is probably one of the most quotable lines on the show. This song just set the mood and really made it that much more memorable. It’s nothing less than perfect.
 

‘So Says I’ by the Shins

Who could ever forget the spring break scene where Paris tries to make out with Rory on the dance floor? The fact that The Shins were playing this song live during the scene just made it so much better.
 

‘Time Bomb’ by Rancid

Not only did Lane dance to this catchy tune in Rory’s room toward the beginning of the first season, but Hep Alien eventually covers it during a performance later in the series!
 

‘When You and I Were Young Maggie Blues’ by Bing Crosby and Gary Crosby

Watching Rory and Richard bond over this song in the hospital room is still one of the most memorable scenes of the series. Pour one out for the wonderful Richard Gilmore. We miss you, friend.
 

‘Inside Out’ by The Mighty Lemon Drops

The Gilmore Girls series finale was such a bittersweet episode, but this song definitely made for one of the most memorable moments: Luke and Lorelai kissing!
 

‘If I Could Write’ by Sam Phillips

This emotional song sums up the Gilmore girls’ love for each other perfectly, especially in times of sadness. Who could ever forget this song playing as Rory packs for a grip to Europe with Emily after fighting with Lorelai?
 

‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper

Lorelai and Emily Gilmore walking a catwalk to Cyndi Lauper’s greatest hit? Classic. Though they may not have gotten along often, at least they could bond over this song.
 

‘O’Oh’ by Yoko Ono

Remember that time when Rory skipped school to walk through New York with Jess, stopping for food and record shopping? This song was the perfect accompaniment for their adventure.
 

The La La Tunes by Sam Phillips

Okay, so these aren’t really actual songs per say, but Gilmore Girls wouldn’t be Gilmore Girls without them (and so neither would the Gilmore Girls playlist)! They’re so iconic!
 

‘My Little Corner of the World’ by Yo La Tengo

We decided to end our Gilmore Girls playlist on a cute note with this sweet song. The mental image of Rory and Lorelai runing at each other from across town during the season 1 finale is enough to make anyone smile.

 

What song(s) would you add to our ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist?
