(Cool) Shite on the Tube – Film, TV, Comics, Games, Books, Genre Pop Culture.

About Us

Cool Shite is a site dedicated to films, TV, comics, games and anything genre and pop culture.

Why (Cool) Shite?
(Cool) is in brackets because most of the time we watch stuff no-one has seen before, so sometimes it’s “cool shite” and other times it’s just simply shite.

Shite?
Pronounce it: Sh-eye-t, it sounds better than the old ‘shit’ word.
