I know, I know.Back when I first saw a demo of it in January, I called Hue Entertainment "a smart lighting game-changer." Powered by "Hue Sync" software on your PC or Mac, Hue Entertainment syncs your color-changing Philips Hue smart lights with whatever's on your computer's screen. Hook that computer up to your TV, and things really get interesting. Now playing: Watch this: Philips Hue wants to light up your next Overwatch match 1:57 When Philips invited me to a fancy hotel suite and showed me a full demo of Hue Entertainment back at CES 2018, I was floored. The software that makes it work has to read your screen in real time to provide near-instantaneous lighting changes on the fly, and as I watched multiple demos from Philips -- including an impromptu Overwatch match that was entirely live and unscripted -- I was struck by how little lag I noticed. The developers did a terrific job, and it's near impossible not to be impressed when you see it for yourself.Now, after … [Read more...] about Philips Hue Entertainment sounds awesome.

CHATSWORTH, CALIFORNIA—Bree Mills is crouched in the darkened hallway of an adobe ranch house, her face illuminated by a high-resolution monitor. She’s clutching a pair of bulky headphones to her ears and watching as a family falls apart. The family is just around the corner, sitting down for dinner at a table set with three steaming plates of spaghetti and meatballs.

These prosaic details seem meaningful considering what’s coming next.

With so many new series popping up on streaming services and DVD every day, it gets harder and harder to keep up with new shows, much less the all-time classics. With TV Club 10, we point you toward the 10 episodes that best represent a TV series, classic or modern. If you watch these 10, you’ll have a better idea of what that series was about, without having to watch the whole thing. These are not meant to be the 10 best episodes, but rather the 10 most representative episodes. X-Men wasn’t the only comic-book animated series to debut in 1992, and it’s pretty tough to argue it was the better one, since Bruce Timm’s Batman: The Animated Series hit screens a month before and had an impact that’s still reverberating through a genre it helped create. X-Men didn’t have quite the visual panache of Batman, nor its dark sense of atmosphere. But it had quite a few things going for it—most notably, the fact that it was working off of 30-odd years of … [Read more...] about 10 episodes that show how

In a year full of hate, there’s a lot of love in the world of comics. Romance is a shared theme among many of this year’s best comics: There’s heartwarming queer love in books like Aquicorn Cove, Heartstoppers, and On A Sunbeam; Tolkien-infused marital drama in the pages of Coda; a futuristic Romeo & Juliet reimagining in The New World; and even interspecies affection in My Boyfriend Is A Bear.
