One of the biggest experiments in the history of Kickstarter, the Veronica Mars movie, is about to be released. The crowd funding site resurrected a TV show that people wanted resurrected, and though it was on a tight budget and schedule, it still got made and will be out in the world very soon.
As we’ve reported before on TGD, there have been a number of geek auctions in the last several years, and for the geek who has big bucks, some incredible stuff has been sold. Several items that come to mind are the original 65mm camera that shot Star Wars, which went for a good six figures, and one of the original Batmobiles, which went for millions.
At this point, we should all be surprised there hasn’t been a Star Trek theme park yet. A Star Wars theme park in Disneyland is certainly understandable, same thing with the Avatar land, which will be opening at Disney in 2017, yet somehow we haven’t had a land of Trek until now.

We’re going to be seeing a lot of Doctor Who this month. He’s hitting his 50th anniversary on November 23, with a special episode that will have a simultaneous worldwide broadcast. In some markets you’ll be able to see this episode in 3D, and for a good cause Doctor Who will also get a lot louder, thanks to Marshall amps.
No matter what the critics think about the next Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire, it’s going to be an enormous success no matter what. Still, we’re definitely curious if the next installment is any better or worse than the original, especially considering original screenwriter / director Gary Ross (Big, Seabiscuit) didn’t come back for another go round. (He was replaced by I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence.)
ABI Research analysts say North American households with 4K TVs are expected to pass 10% by the end of 2018.
It’s been a great year for genre TV, and as a long time horror fan, I’m especially ecstatic to see it making a big return to the small screen. In this regard, not only is the new series Sleepy Hollow a hit, it’s also officially the first hit show of the fall season.

Okay, so it's only in box office terms, but this awesome chart from the Economist says it all. Of course, in the real world, the kind of real world, Superman would just wipe the floor with everyone. Am I right? Am I right?
We've covered the burgeoning PC-on-a-stick market fairly extensively on TG Daily in recent months. While offering various features and a wide range of capabilities, the overall form factor amongst such devices is pretty much the same.
