On Second Thought: Maybe the Apocalypse Is Happening A Month From Today
It just seems like the next logical step is that they announce they found aliens on Mars, then they say they’re bringing one back to Earth, then it spawns a brood of slimy monsters, then they attack. That should all take about a month.

Judd Apatow’s Two-Decade-Old Simpsons Script
It’s a true testament to the longevity of The Simpsons that one of the most famous, powerful people in Hollywood wrote a spec script for the show back when his career was just getting started. The producers of the show just heard that he did this and have decided to blow the dust off the script and make it.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
