About a week ago, Meszaros was found unresponsive in his apartment in Los Angeles. Meszaros stood at a famously (dubbed 'smallest man in the world') petite 2 feet 9 inches tall, and he was discovered performing in a traveling circus before making his debut on television as Alf the alien in a famous '80s sitcom.



He put on performances for some of the world's most widely recognized and hailed figures such as Michael Jackson (who went on to become a dear friend), Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan. 

In the 1980's the city of Hawthorne, California named their shortest street 'Michu Lane' in commemoration of the performer. Rest in peace Michu Meszaros, you'll be missed. And now, a nice compilation of some of Alf's greatest moments:

It took a novelist, two screenwriters, and a lot of luck for Game of Thrones to make it to TV

And the carousel of 1990s nostalgia continues making everyone dizzy.

Flavorwire, along with many other outlets, is reporting the return of Xena: Warrior Princess

From 1995-2001, the show about an eponymous warrior princess out to redeem her past sins charmed many with it's campy sensibilities and striking lead actress, Lucy Lawless. Well, NBC wants to see if the magic is still there.

Before you feel all like:



You should know that the reboot is in it's infancy.

It's so early in the project's development, in fact, that the "modern reboot" is still searching for a writer. Thus, all info about the series — which was originally created by Tapert and John Schulian — is written in totally vague terms, as in the aforementioned THR news piece: the fact that "producers are said to be looking for a sophisticated and smart superhero for a new generation" doesn't give provide much in the way of concrete details, given that no one's expecting them to be looking for a dumb superhero for a bygone generation.



This show would join the large roster of 1990s television shows that are suddenly hurdling back at us, from Full House to next January's X Files miniseries.



But just think, we could here this fearsome battle cry again before too much longer.

If you somehow think that Benedict Cumberbatch only serves the world as Kahn and Martin Freeman's only role is as a hobbit, you would do well to remember they work splendidly together in a little BBC show called Sherlock

We can forgive your forgetfulness; it's been close to two years since we've heard anything from the detecting duo.

Nevertheless, we knew that they would return for a Christmas special later this year. And we also knew they would be going back in time for a special Edwardian/Victorian adventure.

And now, thanks to the BBC we have the first photo showing what they will look like in their 1800s duds.
