Pop Culture Geekery

I’ll be showing my love about various Pop Cultural interests. Film, books, and TV , with a patina of nostalgia and just a pinch of snark,  some remembrances  of  things my brain should have forgotten years ago, throw  in a little of the new hotness about twice a week and that’s  the recipe for geeking out.

I’ll try to blog about current shows like Supernatural, Gotham and The Walking Dead in real time and reminisce about a few old friends like The Invisible Man and Angel. I’ll discuss comparisons of new and old movies and some of my favorite books, too.

    1. I wasn’t really an Angel fan til Spike joined the crew, until then I hadn’t really committed, but I will be recapping/reviewing The Walking Dead on my site and Supernatural, every week.

      Did you watch Fear the Walking Dead? Did you like it? I only sort of liked it. It was an okay tide over til the REAL Walking Dead show begins.

      1. I loved Angel at first then it got ROUGH around S3 and didn’t get good again until the final season, which I loved so, so much. Spike brought so much to the show. A Hole In The World will never not rip my heart out of my chest.

        You know, I really wanted to give Fear the Walking Dead a fair shake, but I realized the entire time that I was having to actively try to like it- whereas TWD had me HOOKED from second one. I love anything zombie- so to say FTWD bored me is pretty telling. Oh well. You tried, AMC….you tried.

    2. Yep! That’s exactly what I mean. I just couldn’t put my finger on it why I wasn’t feeling FWD. I was trying really hard to like it and got bored and skipped a couple of episodes. But here’s the clinker. I didn’t go back and watch the ones I missed.

      Yeah, I was into Angel up to season three and then just lost interest mostly. I kept watching and there was a good episode from time to time, but I wasn’t invested. But when I heard Spike was going to show up, I was really excited. He did bring a new dynamic and I cared about the series again. I think the writers just really liked writing for Spike because he got so,e of his best lines since season four of Buffy.

      I know a lot of people hated the ending but I don’t mind it so much now as I continued reading about it in the comics. They did stuff in the comics that could never have been done on TV, which was all kinds of cool for me.
