So here at Quantum Multiverse, as you might have discovered, we are geeks. As geeks we partake in geek media. No surprises there 😉 This is just a list of current shows, TV-YouTube-Netflix-Amazon Prime-ETC, that keep us going. There are movies, audio books/plays, Podcasts (& SMODcasts), Comics, Blog posts, Books, Toys, Games, and what-not that are also a factor. I may get to breaking those down at some point but this is a simple and easily digested post and a good place to begin.
Since Top Gear (BBC) is now defunct, I found a new appreciation for classic cars and the art that Danny’s crew can create with them.
At first I didn’t like this version of the TMNT. I was a huge fan of the 2003 version of the show. After a few episodes I was sold. The show pays homage to old cartoon, including the 2003 version of the title.
Chuck is a fun, Sci-Fi take on a Nerd gaining superhuman abilities. As the intersect, Chuck, is a powerful tool in the international spy scene.
We recently began our Amazon Prime account and this is one of the shows that we stream from there. I like it better than the original Stargate SG-1 for the depth that it has.
This one is fun to make fun of. Saturday nights on MeTV has a block of time reserved for this great old show.
I am speechless. THIS is Daredevil. It’s like Frank Miller opened up his arteries and out sprang this Netflix series, magically.
The oldies are still the best. This series holds a special place in my heart and in my Netflix que. I’ll also watch it on Saturday nights on MeTV (over the air digital antenna channel)
This show was my weekly go-to show about Star Wars news for a year now. The host, Ken Napzok, is moving on to bigger and better things but I’ll keep tuning in to see what the Popcorn Network has in store.
Kevin Smith and the guys at the Secret Stash in New Jersey. I can’t get enough of this program.
I found RetroBlasting on YouTube in the Autumn of 2014. I can’t say enough great things about this channel. They cover a very wide variety of vintage toys, cartoons and movies. The sardonic wit and the clever comedic element is what keeps me coming back for more of their videos. I now know shit about My Little Pony than I ever knew I wanted to know. #RetroBlasting has reinforced my geekness, affirmed my nerdiness, and informed my dorkieness. For that, I thank them.
I’ve fallen behind on my view of this show but it is a pretty great show about a young Ninja who’s actual special ability is turning foes into friends.
This is one of those shows that I can watch all the way through the eight seasons and then start it all over again.
Although not as good (doesn’t even touch it) as the previous Avengers cartoon, this has just enough obscure characters involved that keeps my interest, for the most part.
Wonder Woman! Another MeTV Saturday night staple. Lynda Carter was one of my first crushes and her smile still makes my evening better. My wife has that effect on me every day 🙂
This show is still one of the best written and directed shows of its kind. It could almost be a story created by Stan Lee. I watch this on Netflix, over and over.
A great YouTube channel that contains the Jedi Council and more.
So there I was, again, searching through random image on Google when I came up with the idea to do a post about the WORST attempts at live action Superhero shows ever. Well, I found several lists along with images and the world has enough negative posts about everything.
I decided to post a few images of, what I feel to be, the best executions of superhero(ish) characters to make it to the small screen. I won’t list (Green) Arrow, the Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., or the bad-assness of Dare Devil, since they all go without saying that they are some of the best shows to date based on comic book material. So without further ado I bring you, in no particular order, my favorite heroes that can be found on television.
Yes. This is going to be a great show. Trust me.
This fits the spirit of the superhero show.
My first crush. ^_^
Rex Smith played Daredevil in the late 80’s. Recognise the suit?
Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin) Smallville Justice League episode
Tw of the best heroes ever, Mr. Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor and Liz Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith 🙂
I still love this show.
Xena. Nuff Said.
The Monster Squad was another favorite. Supernatural Superheroes.
Tarzan was always a favorite show of mine in the early 1970’s.
Super Spies rank right up there as well. Wild, Wild West.
Justin Hartleys Green Arrow and Michael Shanks Hawkman Smallville Justice League episode
Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter (2015)
The Power of Isis
I don’t remember much about this show, except that it impressed me when I was in the sixth grade.
Campy, yes, but still a fun show to enjoy OR make fun of.
Guy Williams as Zorro!
The Kato show… oh I mean the Green Hornet 😉
Man From Atlantis from 1977
Before Reeve there was Reeves.
Beastmaster was an okay show.
Ultraman! The show responsible for my ultra geekness!
Still a classic.
So Aquaman had this, very unpopular, redesign back in 1985. Why? I have no clue. It was such a radical change that there was no transition and no time for fans to get used to a new look. Apparently there was one thing that the King of Atlantis did get right… this new look was a great stealth suit for avoid sharks. Not that Arthur needed that since he commands all of the creatures in the oceans and waterways.
This leads us up to today. Now we have, courtesy of an Australian company, Wetsuits that create a camouflage effect when viewed by sharks. There are still some questions to be answered. Such as, do these things actually work? Shark attacks don’t happen with a regular frequency like movies would lead you to believe. Check out the article about these wetsuits on Wired.com: Will These Wetsuits Actually Deter Shark Attacks, or Just Encourage Them?
I may actually take up Surfing, if they work, of course 😉
