The Americans: We Take a Sly Look Back and Anxiously Wait for 2018’s Final Season

by: Ana

Shows that take place in the past are always a tricky situation.  You have to get the hair right, the clothes right, and tell events in history as if the viewers are truly experiencing it in the moment.

“The Americans” isn’t just a show about spies, it’s so much more.  This is a show about family, teamwork, loyalty, betrayal, morality, love, and hate.  It encompasses science and religion and questions if secrets really are ever secrets.americanscanren4 Continue reading

Movie Stars Make Bigger Names for Themselves on TV Screens

Movie Stars Make Bigger Names for Themselves on TV Screens

by: Ana

The term movie star-it meant such a different thing so long ago…if you made it big in a motion picture, well, then everyone wanted to be just like you.  However, the shine has begun to wear off the term and we’re finding that more and more big names are transitioning from theater to the small screen viewing parties of our generation…IMG_2247

For the Love of…Aliens

For the Love of…Aliens

By: Ana

The term “alien” is usually associated with something extraterrestrial, or not of this planet.  You may picture intelligent different beings that long only to communicate with us and share information.  Or perhaps you envision a warlike species that thirsts for the domination of the human race.  They might be our saviors or the unlocking to our ultimate demise.  Will you take a journey with me, my fellow geeks, a journey that allows you to suspend your disbelief and exposes you to a world…a world full of aliens?

For the Love of…Unicorns

by: Ana

What is it about unicorns that draws the human eye to them?  Is it their proximity to the real life existing creatures called horses?  Or is it that mystical part of them?  The one horn that in some form or another always contains some kind of special power?  What makes unicorns so different from any other magical creature?

For the Love of…Zombies

For the Love of…Zombies

by: Ana

They look scary, they make scary sounds, and they will never stop trying to get what they want…human flesh.  They are…zombies.  Your favorite may be the slow moving, the fast running, or the intelligent and loving zombie capable of change, but regardless, all these creatures want to do is embrace you-and not in a fun “oh this person loves me so much” way.  More like in a “oh God, why didn’t I wear a protective helmet?” way.  Why do we fear zombies?  Why do we love zombies?  Geeks, let me take you through a blood splattered walk down memory lane, and we’ll figure it out together.

In a world where TV show binging has become popular, the truth is, a TV junkie like me runs through shows quickly.  Even shows that stream through Hulu, Amazon, or Netflix can leave you feeling empty the next day because, well, they still run on a “season” system like cable does.  So, what do you do when all of your shows go on hiatus?  Continue reading
