Warning: Minor spoilers for Dimension 404 below:
Imagine if Doctor Who and The Twilight Zone had a baby; the result would be Rocket Jump’s new Hulu series, Dimension 404. Each installment of the six episode anthology show is inspired by the internet’s all too familiar “404” error code, and focuses on the deeper, darker, and stranger depths of the World Wide Web — and did I mention that Mark Hamill is the narrator?
But is the show itself a success, or does it deserve its own “error” mark? Find out below in this review of episode one, “Matchmaker.”
We’ve all seen it before: you click on a link to a page you’d really like to view and that annoying “404” error is displayed across your screen. But why? Where could the page have possibly gone? What happens beneath that website mistake, in the dark depths of the World Wide Web?
A trailer has been released for Dimension 404, a new science fiction series premiering on Hulu from Rocket Jump, the production company behind the popular web series, Video Game High School. An anthology show that taps into the scary, weird, and humorous aspects of the internet’s expansive unknown.

The X-Files Season 1 Episode 6: “My Struggle II”
Written & Directed by Chris Carter

Two decades after the world was introduced to FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), we unfortunately must say goodbye again tonight… although hopefully not forever. Tonight marks the sixth and final episode of FOX’s mini-reboot. And the show did not miss a beat. Like we never left them, Mulder and Scully are right back in the midst of government conspiracies, telepathic kids, clay totem killers, and human sized horned lizards… you know, The X-Files as usual. We return to the story that reintroduced us to our heroes; that of Conservative TV host Tad O’Malley (Joel McHale) who recruits the two to discuss his conspiracy theory; one that shatters Mulder’s long held expectations of the truth, and puts all of them and mankind in danger. That conspiracy: After the alien crash at Roswell, the government has been using alien technology and DNA to conduct biological tests, and create super weapons, all the while keeping us afraid of outer worldly boogeymen.
