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 – 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

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 – Marvel’s Luke Cage… Sweet Christmas!

Blog-II It’s no secret that I have been waiting, with baited breath, for the Luke Cage series to happen. I have been over the moon satisfied with every one of the Marvel series that Netflix has produced. But this one, as well as the upcoming Iron Fist, are my most highly anticipated. Now, this is not a line for line interpretation of the iconic character, but all of the changes are minor, reflect his modern depiction and definitely add to the character as a whole. Continue reading

Irregular’s Intel – Why I Love Luke Cage (Revisited)

Blog-IIHere at Geek Watch One, we try to not repeat ourselves. But with Luke Cage hitting Netflix this week, we thought it was worth revisiting Kylan’s post from last year covering the character’s history. Enjoy! 

Luke Cage is a Marvel character who has been around since the early 70’s and has mostly been a B or C tier character until Alias (with Jessica Jones) and the “Civil War” event. Now he’s up there with the big boys – Cage is even an Avenger now! As you may know, he is one of my faves and is a great study in self improvement. Ride with me in the way back machine as I give you a crash course on him from his meager beginnings to his rise to the top. Continue reading

Miss Dawn’s Musings – Getting Some Strange

Blog-MDM Over the weekend I finally had a chance to watch Stranger Things, the latest Netflix show (of course I binged it!). Set in the 80s, it’s a scifi/horror that actually feels like it was produced in the 80s. From the pop songs and instrumentals of the soundtrack, to the way it was shot and how the story unfolds… it’s all just very 80s. But that’s a fantastic thing! Continue reading

Best Geeky Finds – Rebooting the House

Blog-BGFLast weekend I binge watched Fuller House, the reboot of the 1980’s family sitcom, Full House. The previews teased a brand new show about the older 2 girls of the Tanner family, DJ and Stephanie. It could have been a fresh start and an original Netflix show. While it found a fresh start at times throughout the series, at most places it was unfortunately far from that.  Continue reading
