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!

Arrested Development‘s fourth season aired three years ago today. To celebrate its legacy (and to try to forget how much we’re missing it right now), let’s rank the best recurring Arrested Development jokes!

It’s really no secret that Arrested Development has some of the best recurring jokes and gags of all time. Even people who don’t watch the show are familiar with things like “There’s always money in the banana stand” and “I’ve made a huge mistake.” The jokes in this show are just so understated and catchy that it would’ve been crazy had they not have caught on. Thanks to Arrested Development‘s recurring jokes, pop culture has never been quite the same.

To celebrate our undying love for Arrested Development, we decided to forgo the banner (sorry, everyone) and instead put together a list of all of the gags and jokes that we think are the best ones the show’s ever done. Not only that, but we’re leaving it up to you to rank them!

How to play: Love a certain joke and think that it should be at the top of the list? Upvote it. Really hate another joke and don’t understand how it got on the list in the first place? Hit that little downward-facing arrow. Don’t care either way for some of these gags? Then you can just leave them untouched. It’s all good! We just want to know what YOU think! With everyone participating we’ll be able to build a definitive list of the best Arrested Development jokes!

So, grab your denim cut-offs and hot ham water, and maybe even do a little chicken dance to get yourself pumped up (but not with the hot ham water in your hand, please). If you’re an Arrested Development fan, you’re sure to love ranking these jokes.

(Just be careful about which arrow you hit. You don’t want to hit the wrong one and find yourself saying “I’ve made a huge mistake.”)

Are there any ‘Arrested Development’ jokes missing from the list? Add them below!

Marvel fans aren’t pleased with the twist in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.

By now you know that Steve Rogers is revealed to be a Hydra agent in the first issue of the new Captain America: Steve Rogers series (Read our in-depth analysis of the new issue here). Naturally this news — that ultimate do-gooder Cap would be so evil — has not sat well with fans.

The general consensus is that this shit is unacceptable…


… And the only thing to do is ignore it:



Others think Marvel need a taste of their own medicine:


And/or need to fire their lame-o writers:


Then there are beautiful Photoshops like this one of Chris Evans’ Captain America ripping up a tree the comic:


Some people are Photoshopping the comic to make him say things that are just as outrageous as him being a HYDRA agent:


While others are giving him a different revelation — one concerning Bucky. This is the twist that SHOULD be in the new Captain America series



Marvel, please write yourself out of this one as quickly as possible.


… Before you start coming up with other outrageous revelations


Emilia Clarke proves there is more to Dothraki than death threats in a recent appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Clarke, who plays the indomitable Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones, sets Meyers straight on the fact that Dothraki is, in fact, a real language created for the show. Linguist David J. Peterson crafted Dothraki, and all of the other fictional languages used on Game of Thrones — but even after six seasons, his words present Clarke with a continual challenge.

“You get it in English, at the top in the first script, it’s like, ‘This will be in Dothraki,'” Clarke recounts of her learning process. Following English is the Dothraki speech, followed by a literal translation, and then finally the dialogue in spoken English.

“And then I get an MP3, and then my kitchen hears it for weeks and weeks and weeks on end, until I sound convincing,” Clarke says.

But given the opacity (and complete invention) of the Dothraki language, Emilia Clarke admits that there have been times when she replaced her lines with something a little more… interesting.

“With the latest marvelous actors we’ve had doing Dothraki with us, it was a long day,” Clarke admits, giggling. Not realizing that the camera was on her, Clarke allowed a moment of silliness to take over.

“I thought it would be funny if I did ‘MMMBop’ in Dothraki,” she says. “And that didn’t help him at all! And then I think some of that was definitely my take.”

Ever game, Clarke dives in to her rendition of the Hanson hit, translated into the language of the brutal horse lords.

“I can’t stress how much less catchy that is!” Meyers laughs.

Game of Thrones 6×06, “Blood of My Blood,” airs Sunday, May 29 at 9:00 p.m. on HBO.
