We love a good poster to celebrate the end of a fine science fiction TV series. We like a freaky one too. Good job, because this latest poster for the end of Fringe is right up there in the annals of damn scary images.

I (am) vill be back in Conan! Arnold Schwarzenegger speaks.

Here’s a nice little interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger about what to expect from his return in the new Conan movie. Well, blood and lots of woman with furry bikinis is what most of the male fans will be hoping for.
