We probably should have seen the writing on the wall back when we learned that The Office would be leaving Netflix at the end of 2020. There’s no way that a year that ends with The Office leaving the streaming network that gave the show a second drink life could possibly be good. And it wasn’t. Pandemic. Quarantine. Awaiting the results of murder hornets. Fires. … Continue reading The Office- How Peacock Plans To Hold The Show Hostage Until You Pay
I’m not a crazy New Years Resolution guy. That doesn’t mean I don’t make them but I try to keep them obtainable. I feel too often we set these unrealistic resolutions and all they do is discourage us for the rest of the year, and 2020 was discouraging enough in itself. Mainly I focus on things like my yearly reading list (which I crushed) or … Continue reading Ten Thousand Views Celebration
Last Monday, I sat down in front of my keyboard and started clacking out some words. It felt good. Better than good even which I’m sure constitutes as “great” or any other adjective that exceeds the word “good”. Such a boring word for such a wonderful feeling, but alas, I did not invent language otherwise there would be more weird noises and eyebrow movements. That … Continue reading Ted Lasso- A Very Much Needed Hug After A Rough Week
Alright, nobody panic. Just take a deep breath. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Close your eyes and try and center your chi…? Or just calm yourself down in less fancy terms. Just a few times. Come on, I’ve got the time if you do. I think doing this three times is exactly what we need before we take things any further. Here … Continue reading Ummm, Netflix…Where Is Parks and Rec?!?!
I always get a little nervous when I put something out in the universe that depends on the involvement of others to get off the ground. When I came to you last week looking to create the first ever I Am Geek Mailbag, I had already written two columns in my head. The first column where there was actual participation and I answered all your … Continue reading I Am Geek Mailbag Vol. 1
The problem after finishing a binge is always trying to figure out what to watch next. Do you jump right into something new? Do you take some time off tv shows and wait for the next big thing? Or do you just re-watch the second season of The Umbrella Academy again? And while that would be an easy solution, I think the wife and I … Continue reading A Kurt Russell Beard Appreciation Post
I’m starting to wonder if there’s something wrong with me. I could possibly be broken. At the very least malfunctioning. My lovely wife and I wrapped an intense binge-watching of all things Ozark about two weeks ago, maybe longer I don’t fully understand how time works anymore, and since Run the Jewels started blasting during the season three finale… I haven’t binged watched anything since. Granted, we’ve watched alllll of The Floor … Continue reading How Long Should A Binge Hangover Last?
Geeklings, I wanted to write a legit column for you on this fine Monday. There’s nothing better than kicking off the week with some solid content to get the ball rolling. It’s like that iced cold beverage after working all day. That beverage may contain alcohol if you want, or it just may just be as cold as your felled enemies. That’s not the point. … Continue reading How The Last of Us Part 2 Prevented This Column
It’s easy to take a show like The Office literally. This is supposed to be a documentary of the lives of the employees of a struggling paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The entire purpose of the show is to make it feel like it’s not a television show but rather a bird’s eye view to the lives of these people. We’re not supposed to think … Continue reading The Office- Have You Noticed Jim’s Sleeves & Other Fun Facts
I can’t imagine it’s easy to launch a new streaming network especially in a world that is more or less overflowing with them. If you have a particular interest, I’m pretty sure there’s a streaming network for you. Like to watch meerkats stand up and look at things? Then you’ll love Meerkats Plus! Not a real streaming service but lord how I wish it was. … Continue reading HBO Max Is Kind of A Mess, Huh?
