Sherlock Season 4 – Just Wow!

I am a fan of innovative television shows that are constantly improving how they tell stories. BBC’s Sherlock is one of the best shows at it today. I first saw it in 2010 when I was visiting England. I was talking with my aunt, and [...]

The Return of Doctor Mysterio – New Doctor Who is almost here!

When it was announced last year that the tenth season of Doctor Who would not air until 2017, I wasn’t as upset as some. I was actually a little excited. Why? Because whenever there is a break from something good – like Doctor Who – [...]

The Strain superior to TWD in every way.

Spoiler So- TWD killed 2 people on the premier of season 7 this last week- Yawn. When the only plot mechanic left is to kill characters that we have grown to love over the course of many seasons...... that show is running on fumes. Tie [...]

Luke Cage – Marvel should stop making movies and make more shows like it.

It’s been a little more than a week since Marvel’s Luke Cage 13-episode television series was made available on Netflix, and wow what a series it was! I think Marvel should stop making movies and just focus on making these shows on Netflix. They’re grittier, [...]

Diversity in Geek Culture – What If We All Got Along?

Why “Game of Thrones” is Lasting While “The Walking Dead” is Not: PART 2

  So, as we all know by now, the game of thrones appears to be coming to an end. Not the show, necessarily, but in Westeros. At least for now it appears to have reached a breaking point. What I'm referring to is that absolutely [...]

Why “Game of Thrones” is Lasting While “The Walking Dead” is Not

Originally written on 6/01/2016 after episode 6 "Blood of My Blood"  Well, here we are, in the middle of another Game of Thrones season. In many ways things are the same, Westeros is still full of douche bags we'd love to kill, Daenerys is making awesome speeches [...]

Supergirl’s Superman has been revealed!

In its first season, Supergirl never showed Superman. He was there, but he only ever communicated with Kara through instant messages. If he came onto to the scene, you just saw glimpses of him. You never his face. Personally, I liked it that way because [...]

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping Review

Music documentaries have been around for a long time, but they’ve had a huge boom in popularity over the past few years, the likes of which we haven’t experienced since the 70’s and 80’s gave us classics like U2’s Rattle and Hum, The Band’s The [...]

You Gotta See This: The United States of Leland

  If you’re anything like me, you’ll agree that Ryan Gosling is one of the most underrated actors working today. He was often thought of as a just a pretty-boy actor until recent years, when he has consistently been proving that he’s so much more [...]

Pearl Mackie is Doctor Who’s new companion, and her name is Bill

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

As a lover of all things comic book related I, like most, was eagerly awaiting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice since I was a kid. This is a showdown I had seen in comic books, acted out with action figures, and played out over [...]

Supergirl learns about forgiveness, her evil side, and everything else in between.

The last few episodes of Supergirl have been a continuous story arc which caused Kara to go through a lot of character development. She experienced extreme emotional lows and saw the true nature of many important people in her life. Let’s face it, every person [...]

OK, Let’s DC THIS!

Michael Fassbender is totally an “Assassin’s Creed” dork and it’s perfect.

Hey guys! Long time, no see. With the stress of finding a new job, buying a car, and staying financially stable, I've been forced to take a step back from the frontlines of Nrdly lately. I've been hard at work behind the scenes with Geof planning [...]

Recap: Doctor Who S9E12- A Hell of a Way to End the Season

I don't know about you, but I freakin LOVED Prometheus, Ridley Scott's first foray into the Alien universe in decades. I felt it stayed true to the original universe, while giving us something new, fresh, and...interesting. A lot of people called in confusing (and they're probably right), [...]

PIXELS: Why Are You So Bad?
