Transhumanism and Reincarnation in Adventure Time's "Food Chain"

All conceptions of evil and unfairness melt away in the grand scheme, and Finn achieves his enlightened form. Not that the children care—they scoff and go back to their playthings, running obliviously through the tunnels, through the bird’s throat, the decomposing soils …

Check out our recap of Adventure Time’s “Food Chain”!

Illusory Love Healing in Adventure Time's "Breezy"

"Finn was able to feel Breezy’s love because he was extricated from his emotional situation. He was taken out of obligations of accepting someone’s feelings, having to return feelings, having to decide whether they’re feelings for flowers or Finns or whatevs, and so he was able to sense love in a very fundamental way, one which managed to rekindle his childish appetite for life."

Remember Reading Rainbow?
LeLaVar Burton has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring back the iconic children’s TV show Reading Rainbow as a web series. The new and improved Reading Rainbow will include digital content such as a library of interactive books and video field trips. Burton will also be working on a classroom version that he will provide to schools for free.

Supporting the Kickstarter campaign will net you rewards like Reading Rainbow t-shirts and other swag, and for an extremely generous Star Trek fan, the opportunity to have dinner with Burton and take a photo wearing the original Geordi La Forge visor prop from TNG. The campaign ends on July 2, and has raised well over half of its funding goal already.

Sci-Fi Noir Masterpiece ‘Blade Runner’ Wants Harrison Ford Back for the SequelAfter months of speculation, Harrison Ford has received an official offer to join Blade Runner 2 once again as the replicant-hunting, noodle-slurping, trenchcoat-sporting Rick Deckard. The film will take place years after the events of the original, which took place in the far-flung future of 2019, and which begs the question—do replicants age?The project has been openly discussed for a while , and hopeful fans can now rest a bit easier, as it looks more and more like they’re trying to make a sequel that doesn’t suck. Ridley Scott will be returning to direct, with a script by Michael Green (Green Lantern, oh hey) and Hampton Fancher, the screenwriter for the original. After all, it seems they’ve already gotten past the biggest hurdle, which is getting Ford excited about it. The infamously grumpy (though lovably so) veteran actor expressed optimism regarding the role during a Reddit AMA, and had this to say:“I’m quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for Blade Runner if in fact the opportunity would exist to do another, if it’s a good script I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he’s a very talented and passionate filmmaker. And I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character.”Continue reading: http://8cn.tv/content/sci-fi-noir-masterpiece-blade-runner-wants-harrison-ford-back-sequel
