TV Easter Eggs: The 10 Best of All Time (So Far)

Creators have been hiding Easter eggs in media for at least half a century now. You might recall that video game designers hid secret outcomes in early computer games like 1973’s Moonlander and 1980’s Adventure. Easter eggs are all over television, too. Sometimes they hint at future plot twists. Sometimes they seem like throwaway details until years later. Sometimes they connect disparate-seeming stories into a shared universe. And sometimes they’re just for laughs.

6 Reasons ‘Yellowstone’ Fans Should Check Out ‘Deadwood’ on Its 20th Anniversary

Fans of Yellowstone still have months to go before the Paramount Network hit returns with its last batch of episodes, but we have a TV anniversary to celebrate in the meantime. HBO’s 2004 series Deadwood, another small-screen Western, turns 20 on March 21. All 36 episodes of Deadwood are streaming on Max — as the 2019 follow-up, Deadwood: The Movie — and we reckon it’s high time for you to pay that town a visit, especially if you like Yellowstone.

‘The 100’ Turns 10: Ranking the 10 Most Shocking Death Scenes

The 100 executive producer Jason Rothenberg warned fans that no one was safe in the world of the CW show and that “anyone, even a beloved character, can die at any time.” But really, someone was dying all the time on the CW series, which followed some of the 100 juvenile delinquents who were exiled to a post-apocalyptic Earth. One death count logged 4,878 casualties across The 100’s seven seasons… not including the 11 billion who died in the nuclear doomsday that started it all.

All Hail ‘Kings’: 6 Reasons to Revisit the One-Season Wonder

Kings had an all-too-brief reign on NBC, canceled after just 13 episodes. At the time, the network executives who had championed the show were getting pushed out, the new guard was unwilling or unsure of how to promote the show properly, and network TV itself was struggling to stay relevant. Ultimately, Kings aired for just six episodes before getting dethroned from its Sunday night time slot and then exiled to summer for the rest of its run.

15 Worst Best Picture Winners

With days to go before the 96th Academy Awards, this year’s Best Picture race seems too close to call. Oppenheimer is the odds-on favorite, according to GoldDerby, but The Holdovers and Poor Things aren’t far behind. Whatever the result is on March 10, critics and moviegoers will certainly say another film deserved the Best Picture Oscar more. And in the spirit of naysaying, we’re voting for the following films as the worst winners of the Best Picture prize.

Albert Einstein’s Brain Traveled the Country for Decades After His Death

Theoretical physicist Albert Einstein died in 1955, but the story of his brain has continued for years now, all because of one man who took the gray matter into his own hands and kept it for decades, even crossing state lines with the brain. What happened to Einstein’s brain? Believe it or not, it was the pathologist who conducted Einstein’s autopsy who just took the brain without permission, as detailed in last year’s documentary film The Man Who Stole Einstein’s Brain.

10 TV Shows That Should Have Had Only One Season

Any television buff will tell you, sometimes less really is more. We all know TV shows that ran too long, whether they “jumped the shark” or just drifted out of the cultural conversation. We’d go so far as to say that the TV shows here, however, could have ended after Season 1. We’re not saying we didn’t enjoy any of these shows from Season 2 onward, but we’d argue they would have better off as one-season wonders.
