So this evening Mrs. Multiverse and I are venturing back into the Pegasus galaxy with the international team of Stargate Atlantis. This was one of our favorite shows on the Sci-Fi channel, now SyFy. I hesitate in saying that it is our favorite Stargate of the three shows that bear that name, but it is. We didn’t watch the third series that much; I think we were a bit bitter over the decision to cancel Atlantis.
The chemistry, and camaraderie are the two biggest draws to the series for us. Those along with the perfect amount of humor make for a fun time. The characters are well fleshed out, and very likable. Being ahead of its time, Stargate Atlantis was a show where women not only lead, they kicked some serious ass. The antagonists, the Wraith, were a frightening foe that were basically alien vampires that lived in a hive-type society.
Well, back to watching the show!
It’s been years since I’ve watched this film. For some reason it doesn’t seem to get the same love as other Disney production. Today I found it on Netflix and decided to give it another viewing. I love the Steampunk aesthetic of the movie, along with the traditional
animation mixed with computer generated elements. Many well known voices lend their talent to this adventure, such as Jim Varney, Florence Stanley, James Garner, and the great Leonard Nimoy.
There is a sequel available, also on Netflix. Now I won’t expect too much as far as infamous direct to video sequels go, but I am pretty easy going and plan on enjoying it.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Kevin Smith and the guys at the Secret Stash in New Jersey. I can’t get enough of this program.
A great YouTube channel that contains the Jedi Council and more.
This is one of those shows that I can watch all the way through the eight seasons and then start it all over again.
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.
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 🙂
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.
I am speechless. THIS is Daredevil. It’s like Frank Miller opened up his arteries and out sprang this Netflix series, magically.
This one is fun to make fun of. Saturday nights on MeTV has a block of time reserved for this great old show.
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.
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.
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.
Before Reeve there was Reeves.
This fits the spirit of the superhero show.
Tarzan was always a favorite show of mine in the early 1970’s.
Beastmaster was an okay show.
The Power of Isis
Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin) Smallville Justice League episode
Super Spies rank right up there as well. Wild, Wild West.
Campy, yes, but still a fun show to enjoy OR make fun of.
I don’t remember much about this show, except that it impressed me when I was in the sixth grade.
The Kato show… oh I mean the Green Hornet 😉
I still love this show.
Rex Smith played Daredevil in the late 80’s. Recognise the suit?
Still a classic.
Xena. Nuff Said.
Guy Williams as Zorro!
Justin Hartleys Green Arrow and Michael Shanks Hawkman Smallville Justice League episode
Ultraman! The show responsible for my ultra geekness!
The Monster Squad was another favorite. Supernatural Superheroes.
My first crush. ^_^
Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter (2015)
Tw of the best heroes ever, Mr. Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor and Liz Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith 🙂
Yes. This is going to be a great show. Trust me.
Man From Atlantis from 1977
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 😉
