We have a plot synopsis for Guardians of The Galaxy: (screencrave)

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

-Screenrant has most anticipated new tv shows in 2014, including Gotham City (which I somehow knew nothing about until right now) (screenrant)

Anyone planning on watching Intelligence tonight? He was great on Lost. I love the fact that Josh Holloway is back on tv, so I hope the show’s good. I don’t like the short hair, though.

Changes at Netflix


Netflix has just removed a large chunk of movies and replaced it with a bunch of new stuff. I saw this article on Dec 28th (and I should have posted it then) of all the stuff that was to be removed (full list there at that link). And here are all the things that were just added, listed newest first. Here Buzzfeed took 15 of the new movies and broke them down. Yay to American Psycho, nay to the fact that Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is now gone. A good thing to know when you’re stuck inside in a snowstorm, right?

As I stated in a recent semi-daily links post, Netflix is also adding a third streaming option for only streaming on one device that also lacks HD. Good if you’re the only one in your family that uses it, like me.

Holy S**t of the day

So you know that meteorite that exploded over Russia? it could have done much worse than it did, according to an assessment released today by the European Space Agency (ESA). Apparently the explosion was equal to 30 atomic bombs. Yeah. They say something like this is only supposed to happen every 100 years, so here’s hoping they’re right about that.
