Note: Full spoilers for 12 Monkeys: Season 1 follow.
It seems like a long time ago that the big question about 12 Monkeys was how it was going to stack up against the 1995 film. Syfy’s 12 Monkeys has quickly forged its own identity, that identity being one of the most promising Sci-Fi shows in years. This is especially welcome from Syfy, a network that has lately been better known for campy originals like Sharknado, rather than genre-defining series like Battlestar Galactica.
The premise of the show sounds simple enough. A terrible plague has wiped out most of the Earth’s population but there’s a time machine, so someone can be sent back to stop the plague and make everything right. That person is James Cole, an antihero who goes along with the plan because he’s done a lot of bad things to survive the post apocalypse and would just like it all to go away. Cole is really part animal when he joins the time travel project, and is so determined to erase himself there’s really no attempt to develop his character. That made scruffy Aaron Stanford (X2, The Hills Have Eyes) the perfect choice for the role. Those of us who watched Nikita know him as an actor who can make you love a guy that’s hard to like.

After what seemed like an immeasurable wait, I finally got my UPS delivery, and the Apple Watch is now in hand. Unfortunately, I only received one of the two watches that I purchased—a 38mm Apple Watch Sport with a white band. I’m not complaining though, at least I got something on launch day.
Watch our unboxing video for a full look at what’s inside. I’ve also included an overview of the Apple Watch hardware mated with my giddy commentary…. Read the rest of this post here

Competitive Dota 2 will see three new official events added to its calendar, beginning this fall with the Dota Major Championships fall tournament. Seasonal events lead up to the annual International Championships each summer.
“These marquee tournament events will see top teams competing at premier venues around the world,” the Dota 2 website explains. “There will be limited trade periods during the year for participating teams. As the Fall event approaches, more tournament details will be announced.” Additionally, these three “additional tournaments will be Valve-sponsored events hosted by third-party organizers at different locations around the world,” and participating teams will “be required to adhere to limited roster trade periods during the year.”
Apple Watch is here! After months of anticipation, people around the world have started receiving their Apple Watch today. It’s now play time, or maybe more accurately, it’s learning time. Time to learn the ins and outs of this new device to get the most out of it.
In the next few days, iDB will be publishing guides on various aspects of Apple Watch, but in the meantime, we wanted to give you the heads up on some basic functions of Apple Watch, so that you know what to do with it right off the box.
If you’re one of the lucky few that were able to get their Apple Watch pre-ordered within the first few minutes, there’s a good chance that your wearable will arrive in the mail today. And after going through all of the stock apps and settings, there may come a time when you think to yourself “ok, now what?”
That’s where we come in. For the past several weeks, iDB has been compiling a list of Apple Watch apps that we think are worth checking out. It’s a curated list, so you won’t see *all* of the apps here, but we’ve selected a wide variety of useful and innovative titles that we think make for a great starter kit.
