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

The Defenders



It’s safe to say that 2017 has been a tough year birthday-wise at GeekyNerdyHQ. I re-broke a toe on the morning of my name day, and not quite three weeks ago, just a few days before the Mysterious Mr. C’s, he was in a pretty nasty car accident. Luckily, he’s physically okay – just a few minor bruises from the air bag and some whiplash – but dealing with the emotional and mental fallout from such a traumatic incident, as well as the insurance companies, has been draining.

As such, we’ve spent much of the past few weekends hunkered down at home bingeing on Netflix. Two days after the crash, it was season three of Voltron: Legendary Defender. A week after that, it was the first season of Attack on Titan. And this past weekend, it was Marvel’s The DefendersRead More

The 100 (Season 1)

The CW

Last fall, as the few shows that the Mysterious Mr. C and I watch on a regular basis were airing their winter finales, I was struck by the fact – once again – that there isn’t too much that qualifies as “Must See TV” for us anymore. It’s a bit ironic, since so many people talk about the past few years as the second golden age of television, but things just weren’t catching our interest. Even shows like The CW’s The Flash, which we still watch fairly regularly, are viewed more out of habit than anything else. So when I fell in love with Syfy’s Incorporated, I was super excited to tell you guys about it! Then, I learned it had been cancelled and felt like I was starting from scratch all over again.  Read More

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

So, I’ve got to be honest: My thoughts on the CW’s newest foray into the superhero genre – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – have been a little all over the place, which is partly why it has taken me so long to review the show. While the Mysterious Mr. C and I watched the introductory special that aired on January 19 and saw the first episode of the pilot shortly after its premiere, Legends didn’t seem to catch our attention enough to tune in with any sort of regularity. But since I’ve been trying to give shows a few episodes to find their footing, I wanted to catch up before passing judgment.  Read More

Fear the Walking Dead

When The Walking Dead first premiered on AMC in 2010, I wasn’t really into the whole zombie thing. While I had certainly seen movies like 28 Days Later and Shaun of the Dead, they weren’t my typical go-to when I was in need of a scary movie fix. My coworkers, on the other hand, were a completely different story and after hearing them rave about the show, I decided to check it out. I valiantly gave it eight episodes – all of season one and then some of season two – but the show was just too dire for me.

Fast forward five years (several more viewings of Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, and Warm Bodies; a full season of iZombie; and a zombie panel at Awesome Con) and it’s safe to say I’ve been converted… mostly. Read More
