Space Cop
Here's the trailer for the teaser poster for the poster for Space Cop, the upcoming feature from Red Letter Media. As with most of RLM's content, be warned that this is unsuitable for children and features cursing, adult humor and Mike's hair being really weird...

The Walking Dead
Here's our first look at Season 4 of The Walking Dead, which sees Michonne doing stuff and zombies and... the other... yeah... Rumors that something significant might actually happen this season have yet to be confirmed...

If it wasn't bad enough having to deal with teenagers who think they're ''special'' now we've got this to contend with. Just go and watch The Prisoner instead.

Heroes of Cosplay/Face Off
Here's a look ahead at tonight's double-whammy of terrific transformations, with Face Off at 9PM EST followed by the latest episode of Heroes of Cosplay at 10 on SyFy.
