One of the problems with owning a website is a very public written record of times where you were wrong. I suppose you can open up a wing in the I Am Geek archives covering the few (more than a few?) times where I just didn’t get it right. Now, I don’t mind being wrong. It happens quite frequently if I’m being honest but when your … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 4- We Know Who the American Is
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,/and never brought to mind?/Should auld acquaintance be forgot,/and auld lang syne? Geeklings, we did it! We’re here. The end of the year is upon us. As I sit here reflecting on the year that was, I can’t help but think of Jason Mendoza when I say “my year started about a year ago…” Doesn’t’ that kind of perfectly sum up … Continue reading I Am Geek Best of 2019 Part 2 (#5-1)
I like to liken my fandoms to the Chappelle character, Tyrone Biggums. Now I know there is a whole generation who might not know what the Chappelle Show is, and it hurts my heart something fiercely, but I like to believe that Chappelle’s resurfacing in standup has pointed a lot of new fans toward this classic sketch comedy show. I refuse to believe that there … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 4- …and What Does It Mean
Another Monday, another jam-packed Week In Geek. How we doing out there Geeklings? There have been tons of comings and goings over the last few days. I celebrated a birthday (thank you, thank you), Spider-Man rejoined the MCU (happiest of happy days), I got a Switch, The Institute by Stephen King is demanding all of my free time, but so is my Breaking Bad re-watch … Continue reading Week In Geek- NYCC Is Here, Goodbye Friend, & The Joker Arrives
Recently I was talking with a friend and we were discussing our favorite television shows and did what most people do in discussions like that… we created a list. A top five if you will. At the time I was moderately happy with my selections even though something about it kind of rankled me. You know the feeling, like when something is out of place … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 3 Review- Just Like Coming Home
Geeklings, I hope your Fourth of July celebrations are going well. Hopefully, you didn’t just have yesterday off and you’re having yourself a bit of a long weekend like yours truly. A long weekend filled with sun, swimming water, BBQs, and Stranger Things! That’s right, after a year and a half wait the third season of Stranger Things is finally here and of course, it falls on a massive summer holiday when … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 3- Instant Reaction To Episodes 1-3
If George R.R. Martin has impressed anything on me with the way he freely abuses his reader’s emotions, it’s that if it doesn’t happen on the page (or on screen) then it didn’t happen. Just because you’re told a character has died or are left for dead or any type of death is alluded to, it means zero until you see that character dead for … Continue reading Stranger Things- What If Doctor Brenner Is Alive?
Outside of the Mind Flayer hovering over Hawkins School in the Upside Down, it’s safe to say that season two of Stranger Things ended on a pretty happy note. The Gate to the Upside Down was closed (or was it?!) through some serious power flexing from Eleven. The kids got to finally enjoy the Snow Ball dance. Will is rid of the Mind Flayer possessing … Continue reading Stranger Things- Did Nancy & Jonathan Doom Hawkins?
Today had already been a pretty solid day. Marvel announced that JJ Abrams would be writing a Spider-Man mini-series with his son this September. Image announced that Matt Fraction (Hawkeye, Sex Criminals) had signed an exclusive original graphic novel deal with them. People have been speculating what the perfect Marvel character would be for Keanu Reeves to portray. All and all it had been a … Continue reading Stranger Things Trailer Breakdown- This Is A Code Red
As far as happy endings go, Stranger Things season two really did its best to give these characters something hopeful. Will Byers, after being tortured/possessed by the Upside Down for two seasons, tries to return to some sort of normalcy. Eleven is now the adopted daughter of Hopper, finally attends the Snow Ball with Mike, and has successfully closed the Gate between Hawkins and the Upside Down. … Continue reading Stranger Things- Is the Upside Down Really Gone?
