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
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
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?
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?
Last week Netflix finally graced us with the release of the long-awaited Stranger Things season three trailer. It couldn’t have come at a better time as the world needed a reminding that this show still existed. That’s the problem with these long layoffs between seasons. In a pop culture scene that has such a short attention span, thanks binge-watching, it’s a “what have you done … Continue reading Does Someone Need To Die In Stranger Things?
It’s funny, sometimes I think I have like a sixth sense. Not in the case where I can see dead people we all know that I am not mentally strong enough to handle that kind of power. Like at all. First dead person I see I’m freaking out and bleaching my eyes. I don’t want that kind of gift thank you very much. No, I’m … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 3 Trailer- Welcome Back To Hawkins
