What I'm Geeking Out About This Week - 04/17/15


Good to see you! This is my week in geek!

Here's what is going on in my world:

Netflix's newest original series is an unprecedented collaboration with Marvel Studios, which continues to explore the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The focus on a smaller story, centered around Hell's Kitchen in New York City and the man trying to save it, pays off very well. Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) is just starting out in this first season as he is pitted against Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin). I'm almost done with the first season and it is wonderful, brutal, real, and fun. I can't wait to see how it ends and I am now even more excited for the rest of the Marvel/Netflix series to come in the near future.

I've been watching each of the weekly episodes so far of this season on Yahoo Screen, and I have been very happy with it. The show's new home on Yahoo and the freedom it seems to have given them has allowed for them to go into full on weird territory and it is great. The show feels fresh and new while still holding on to the core parts about what has made it so awesome for the past few years. I look forward to watching the rest of the episodes as they come out!

Parks and Recreation is one of my favorite comedies of all time. It finished it's seven season run recently and I have begun to rewatch the show from the beginning if I just want to have something on that I know I'll enjoy. I find funny nods to something that pays off later, appreciate the start of running gags, and just appreciate the special qualities of the series more as I watch it all again. I know I've found a cherished show or movie when I can watch it multiple times and enjoy it just as much (or more) each time.

Thanks for stopping by!

What I'm Geeking Out About This Week - 07/04/14

Geek-and-proudSalutations, good people!

Here's what I'm geeking out about this week. (Happy Independence Day!)

I've given love for this show many times in the past and this time is one of much joy, being able to say definitively that Community is coming back for season 6 on Yahoo. I was hoping to see it on Hulu since I want their digital network to have a killer show like House of Cards or Orange is the New Black but I'm still happy that it ended up somewhere. I'm mostly looking forward to some closure since just having this would be good to wrap things up (and then a short movie just to complete the prophecy). I'm sure I'll share my thoughts when the show comes back. If you haven't watched the show yet, all of the series is streaming via Hulu Plus. Long live Community!

  • Green Lantern

I am continually exploring more of the world of comic books and my latest foray is into some of the recent Green Lantern comics, namely all the stories surrounding the Blackest Night story arc. I really do feel like Green Lantern (any and all of them) is my favorite DC character, right alongside Spider-Man from Marvel. I've only just started getting into some of the comics I've bought recently (Sinestro Corps War, Rage of the Red Lanterns, Agent Orange) but be sure I will be mining them for some relevant moral nuggets to share with you all.

  • Maine

So, as of today, I have been back up in my home state of Maine for a week now. I came here for my new job at a school up here and I've just started to get settled in fully. I've started to meet all the people I'll be working with, decorate my new office (which I'm excited to have, since it is my first one), and explore the surrounding area. I'm eager to get into my routine and start working on some projects since I'm still sort of the newbie after my first week who doesn't know how to do anything. I'll definitely be sharing thoughts about things as the process goes along.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the holiday weekend!
