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!
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.
A great YouTube channel that contains the Jedi Council and more.
This one is fun to make fun of. Saturday nights on MeTV has a block of time reserved for this great old show.
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.
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.
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.
Kevin Smith and the guys at the Secret Stash in New Jersey. I can’t get enough of this program.
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.
I am speechless. THIS is Daredevil. It’s like Frank Miller opened up his arteries and out sprang this Netflix series, magically.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 🙂
Stargate is getting rebooted into a new movie trilogy
M E H .
The movie was good. The first TV series was fun! The second was canceled too soon. The other series… meh (again). MGM, make a few more TV movies with the SG1/Atlantis teams and then let it go with dignity.
