My love of campy sci-fi has never been restricted to film. Sure, there’re plenty of bad movies out there that I’ll never stop finding tire fires to enjoy. The 60s was the space age though, and everywhere you looked there was a movie about humans traveling to another planet and being attacked by an intergalactic creature. In 1965 this was especially witnessed in living rooms. Lost in Space told the story of the family of astronauts whose ship was sabotaged and shot off course in an asteroid field, left stranded on a planet orbiting Alpha Centauri.

They were bad. If compared to Tina Belcher’s friend fic, they would be buried alive and refuse to come back as a zombie for her stories. Continue reading Best Geeky Finds – Get Mortified
It is 9:30 on Tuesday night. I’m considering what to write about this week. There are so many programs I’ve started watching on Netflix and so many more getting ready to start. Scrolling down I see one show that has been trending since the beginning of the year. I watched it the week it premiered. I must have already discussed this because it was so perfect. I scroll through the GW1 website—nothing.
Maybe it is the end of the f***ing world because I haven’t written about The End of the F***ing World! Continue reading Best Geeky Finds – Revisiting TEOTFW So Soon
