Miss Dawn’s Musings – Another Year Older

This week Geek Watch One records issue 89 at The Malted Meeple. It’s a number that doesn’t really carry much significance. What is significant, however, is the fact that it’s our two year anniversary. That’s right, somehow we have managed to continue recording this little podcast for two entire years!  Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – The Show Everybody Should Watch With More Frequency

I was skeptical when I learned that the CW would have a television remake of the 2000 film Frequency. It appeared to be the same show with a slight gender-swap. I wasn’t sure an entire season, let alone a series, could be made from that one film. I was completely wrong.  Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – I’m Talkin’ ‘Bout Shaft!

I’m generally a live and let live kind of guy when it comes to remakes. If the creative team is adding a new dimension to the story or a logically different take, I am game for the ride. But, during issue 88 of GW1 it came out that there were plans for a Shaft remake… yeah, a Shaft remake. This movie is already part of the national registry and has influenced so many writers and film makers, what more can you add to this tale? Oh, I know… let’s make it an action comedy!

Hell-to-the-no!!!  Continue reading

Comics Cosmos – Checking The Pulse

The Pulse was a comic following Jessica Jones and her time at “The Pulse”, a weekly section of the Daily Bugle newspaper. There are a lot of familiar characters here, including reporter Ben Urich, publisher J. Jonah Jameson and a load of superheroes including, of course, Luke Cage. So basically, for Marvel fans it’s a great read.  Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – You’re My Kill of the Night: Why Crazyhead Is the Best Show Netflix Keeps Suggesting

A world full of demons living among us, planning for Hell on Earth.

If you just read that and immediately thought Buffy, you’re not the only one. This has been a popular trope for decades, often redone using a variety of character styles, be they supernatural or mere mortals. Ever since the 90s, however, it has always been associated with the Whedonverse. That may change after you watch the E4/Netflix series CrazyheadContinue reading

Irregular’s Intel – Nasty Women and Dangerous Men

I was thinking about the quality of company that I keep and I think that they can best described as, like the title says, nasty women and dangerous men. The term “nasty woman” was used as a put down during a presidential debate, but if the characteristics the speaker was describing are “nasty” then I want all of the nasty that I can stand! If nasty means smart, intelligent, strong, insightful, funny, curious, open minded, creative and resourceful – then hell yeah, sign me up!! Continue reading

Comics Cosmos – Wynonna Earp

If you’re looking for a female protagonist who’s not a typical hero, enjoy the paranormal side of things and like a touch of Western then Wynonna Earp may be the show for you. A descendant of Wyatt Earp, Wynonna returns to her hometown (appropriately named Purgatory) to protect it from demons, as her great grandfather once did. But, of course, it’s not that straightforward.  Continue reading

Miss Dawn’s Musings – Recognition Where It’s Due

If you’re the kind of geek who, like me, loves geek movies you know how enjoyable they are (when done right). And we all know they make production companies a crap load of money. But seldom do they get the critical recognition they deserve, especially when awards season comes around.  Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – A Matter for the Eighth Doctor

Aside from maybe 4, the Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann, is my favorite regeneration of the Doctor. While he was not seen for long in the TV movie, his character has lived on in Big Finish’s audio dramas, proving that he should have been the first Doctor to return when the series was rebooted. Unfortunately, he did not come back to television (other than the short 50th anniversary clip), but along with the audio dramas, Titan Comics has published a volume of comics encompassing his short run in comic form as well.  Continue reading
