First off, I’m fully aware that making a Best of 2020 list sounds like an oxymoron. It’s like trying to figure out what was your favorite bone you broke after you tumbled down that hill or choosing which childhood memory was the most traumatic. For me it would concern a tick… and that’s all I’m going to say about that. But here’s the thing, while … Continue reading I Am Geek Best of 2020 Part I
Rick and Morty are no strangers to pop culture easter eggs. This is a show that has thrived on throwing little details in the background of episodes for fans to harvest and ponder what the deeper meaning is. If there’s one at all. Sometimes I believe that Justin Roiland, Dan Harmon, and the rest of the Rick and Morty crew throw things into the background just to mess … Continue reading What Famous Pop Culture Location Just Showed Up In Rick and Morty?
Often times in entertainment the things we love don’t get celebrated for their brilliance as much as we would like. It’s that classic rom-com formula. The things we love are the girl next door who are these obscure wallflowers because they wear glasses and clips in their hair and the only reason that they aren’t celebrated is that they haven’t removed their glasses or the … Continue reading This Is Finally Better Call Saul’s Time
With the world more or less on the pause button, I Am Geek has had to shift directions in what we present to you the reader. There hasn’t been a ton of new content to discuss which makes sense considering there’s a virus sweeping the globe preventing us from doing pretty much anything. You know it’s bad when Disney pushes back their film slate completely. … Continue reading I Am Geek Current Quarantine Obsessions
Happy Birthday to you/Happy Birthday to you/Happy BirthdAAAAaaaaaay The Office/Happy Birthday to YooouUUUUUUUuuuu I hope you heard the end of that in Michael Scott’s falsetto that he uses when he sings Happy Birthday to everyone. You can see an example of said falsetto when Michael makes his dramatic return to the office in “Survivor Man” to sing the concluding notes to Creed as he gets … Continue reading The Office Turns Fifteen- Here Are 15 Episodes To Watch To Celebrate
Netflix can be a bit overwhelming at times. There is such a tremendous amount of content to cycle through that it’s no surprise that people keep watching things like The Office instead of drowning in the current of content. If you’re like me, you’ve spent entire nights trying to figure out what to watch only for an hour and a half to slip by and … Continue reading BoJack Horseman Final Season- Now With All The Feels
When you take a moment to think about it, 2019 has kind of been the year of endings. Such a large number of things that I love have been calling it quits this year. Whether it was Game of Thrones, The Good Place/BoJack Horseman (really ending in 2020 but 2019 started the ball rolling), Endgame is ushering a new era for the MCU, the final chapter in Breaking Bad … Continue reading Have We Seen The Mr. Robot Ending?
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie opens with a flashback. Jesse and Mike standing in the very spot where Mike is soon destined to die after being shot by Walter White in one the shows biggest, “god damn it Walter” moments. There is no score and the sounds and atmosphere is all New Mexico. It’s beautiful. It’s quiet. The scene carries a weight that extends out of … Continue reading El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Review-A Storytelling Gift
Just stop… please. I’m not sure how much more I can take. Before 2019 I used to believe I was a strong man. An emotional man? Yes, but strong within that emotion. I had resolve. I had strength. A support system. Coping mechanisms. And now… now, I’m just a puddle. An emotionally drained pile of goo that just wants to twirl down the drain so … Continue reading 2019 and the Great Lack of Care of My Emotions
It’s been six years since we watched Jesse Pinkman hop in that el Camino, burst through that chain link fence as if the devil was chasing him, putting Walter White in his rearview and looking for some semblance of freedom., At the very least, a life where he wouldn’t be the meth chef captive of a group of neo-Nazis. Freedom is such a tricky word … Continue reading On the Road With El Camino- Five Questions
