Best Geeky Finds – Feelings On the End of a Favorite

I’ve had mixed feelings about The Vampire Diaries since its first episode in 2009. I tried watching it when it first premiered, but it was way too depressing to watch, as the first 10 minutes explain that the main character, Elena’s, parents died in a car accident off a bridge over the summer. I gave up at that point, not ready to deal with the grief that would happen the rest of the season.  Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – Now That We’ve Met Luke Cage and Iron Fist

Luke Cage and Danny Rand have both stepped up to the plate and had their series on Netflix. Now the wait is on for Marvel’s The Defenders. That’s all well and good, but the bigger question is, are we ready for a live action Heroes for Hire? I’d say, no. Danny and Luke need to sort out their personal stuff before we get to have Power Man and Iron Fist.  Continue reading

She Geek Critique – The Way of the Iron Fist

Considering I’m a Marvel chick, I’ve obviously already binged all of the new Iron Fist series on Netflix. (Plus, of course, we’re talking about it on this week’s Geek Watch One.) And, me being me, you had to know I’d have a little something to say about it. (BTW, for a quick background on the character check out the Comics Cosmos post from back in January.) Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Domo Arigato…

I have always been a fan of stories featuring unreliable narrators. To Kill a Mockingbird. “Jose Chung’s from Outer Space” from the X-files. And now, Mr. Robot.

So who is Mr. Robot? I won’t say (spoilers!). I will say it could be Elliot (Rami Malek), a socially awkward, clinically depressed computer hacker. It could be the strange man in a computer shop jacket (Christian Slater) who confronts Elliot on the subway about his plan to destroy E(vil) Corp. It could be any one of the “fsociety” hackers who start a spiral of attacks on Evil Corp and every person’s account in debt to the company. Mr. Robot could be anybody we meet in the first season of Mr. RobotContinue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Dreadful, Melancholy and Calamitous: A Series of Unfortunate Events

“Look away, look away.” Audiences are continuously requested this throughout the Netflix series, based on the popular children’s book series, A Series of Unfortunate Events. The events, as author of the series and reporter of the terrible events which surround the Baudelaire children, Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) explains, are so terrible nobody should watch. There are so many better things on television than the horrible stories here. And yet, doesn’t telling somebody this make them want to watch more? Obviously, given the 13 books, autobiography, and prequels in the Gothic book series that charmed millions.  Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Winter, Spring, Summer, [and] Fall, All You Got to Do is Call…

Yes, I am a fan of Gilmore Girls. And yes, this is super late, considering Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiered back in November. What can I say, I like to let things sink in. Also, there are way too few Saturdays in a month to talk about everything I find.  Continue reading

Miss Dawn’s Musings – Mistakes Were Made

We all make mistakes sometimes, some little and some pretty damn big. (Did you catch that Best Picture flub at the Oscars last night? Pretty sure that’s in the “big” category!) But when it comes to geek movies and tv shows, those mistakes get picked up quick because the fans pay such close attention and, at times, pick scenes apart frame by frame.  Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Riverdale: This Isn’t Your Parents’ Archie (or Even Your Child’s)

I first became interested in comics as a child, not by reading about superheroes or adventure stories, but through ham radio. Every year I would go backstage at the All-American Soap Box Derby in Akron with my dad as he radioed in each driver and coordinated races. Every time I came there would always be something to read, and it would always be the same comic: Archie’s Ham Radio AdventureContinue 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
