Wordpress, my blog host, won’t allow certain plugins so hence the screenshot of the gallery link. I may be making some moves in the next few weeks. Earlier this month, I secured my domain name via Google Domains.
We recently had a reveal of the new Red Tornado(August 1968) that will be appearing on the Supergirl TV show, airing on CBS soon. While they are both androids they are very different. For the new or casual viewer, that may be moot. All red skinned androids are the same to the non-geek public. I know, I am as shocked as you are that there are still some hold-outs to the Geek lifestyle. I can’t stress enough about the fact that this probably won’t be the final look for the Red Tornado. Pardon the pun but it just won’t fly with the community. The Vision(October 1968) was executed perfectly on the big screen, and while the screen may be smaller our expectations, as geeks, are not. Both have a long history, and both have a legacy that predates the characters themselves, one has been honored and we’ll soon see if the other follows suit.
Who else out there can’t wait to see this old/new character to take to the airwaves?
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.
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 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.
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 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 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 one is fun to make fun of. Saturday nights on MeTV has a block of time reserved for this great old show.
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 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.
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.
A great YouTube channel that contains the Jedi Council and more.
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.
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.
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.
If you are following, or attempting to follow, the current Secret Wars on the insane melting pot called “Battle World” then you understand the need to just shut your brain off and hit cruise control until the end is nigh. Too many domains, too many tie-ins and way too damn many Manhattans. Check out the above video to catch up on the geography of Battle World. I was looking forward to the new Secret Wars but I am thinking that the final outcomes will be more interesting that following the story as a whole. I will admit that I am falling behind in my weekly reading, including Convergence, but the sheer number of new books, new stories, and new realities are taking their toll on this haggard old geek.
