Jessica Jones (Season 2)



Warning: There are some major spoilers in this, so proceed at your own risk!

As I started thinking about this post and what I wanted to say, I realized two things: 1) I never ended up reviewing the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and 2) I’ve never actually reviewed the second season of a show before. The cause for the latter is predominantly because either I, the Mysterious Mr. C, or both of us will lose interest as the storylines become more repetitive or more contrived. The reason for the former is a bit more complicated.  Read More

GNBC: The Princess Bride


Mariner Books

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to the final GeekyNerdy Book Club “meeting” of the year! I know it’s a week late, but it took me a little longer than I expected to process my feelings on The Princess Bride, William Goldman’s most popular novel. In fact, I keep feeling like I need to rewatch the Rob Reiner film as a sort of palate cleanser. That’s not necessarily because I didn’t like the book, more, it just felt super uneven to me and I was left almost not knowing how to feel.

It started with the three introductions that weren’t really introductions. I was expecting something more traditional, a detailing of the book’s origins or reflections on the film’s longevity after its lackluster release. Read More

Revisited: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Editor’s Note: Since my planned posting schedule got a bit messed up with the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m wrapping up my Harry Potter revisit today and moving our last GeekyNerdy Book Club “meeting” for the year to Friday, December 1. See you then!!



Ever since I first finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows when it came out in 2007, my main memory has been about how much I hated the epilogue. After such an intense ride, I wanted something a little more complicated than “everyone’s married now and sending their kids off to Hogwarts.” I mean, there had just been an absolutely massive battle at the wizarding school and I wanted to know more about what happened next. Four years later, when I finished watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, my main thought was, “Yep, still hate that ending and am super-annoyed that I splurged for 3D.” Read More
