The downside of hitting a convention for only one day is that the day is spent rushing around trying to see as much as possible while still enjoying it. The upside? You went to a convention- any time spent at one is a good time.
I got a last minute-ish invite to join a panel at Wizard World Sacramento and as it is only a hop and three skips north of the NerdLush HQ, I accepted. But as it is so close, it made as much sense to opt for a day trip as it did to go for the whole weekend (especially with several other things coming up quick). So Saturday morning, I hopped in Tardis Jr and ventured to nerd fun. Continue reading
The Stargate SG-1 Season Four Minicaps is busy reprogramming a space mine. Please don’t bother it right now, because it needs to concentrate.
When last we left SG-1, they were still dealing with the renewed threat of Apophis, who now has a bigger army than he had before. What are they going to do to stop their nemesis? And what the devil happened to former colonel Maybourne, last seen involved in a failed Russian Stargate program? Let’s see… Continue reading
Did you know they play Dungeons & Dragons in prison?
Also, MAGIC The Gathering.
Who knew, right? Continue reading
Some months ago, we briefly touched on movies of the 90s. As I have been occupied with other things (like say, covering a weekly TV show for this very site), I can finally sit down and list off some of my favorite movies of the 90’s: Continue reading
Like most of America, I headed out with my family over the weekend to view the Jurassic Park franchise reboot, Jurassic World. Walked in wanting dinosaurs, snark, and absurd situations (come on… there’s a scene with people in hamster balls! Who does that?). I walked out happy because that’s exactly what I got. Sure the film has its flaws, but I’m not expecting Schindler’s List here.
My bottom line is that I want my summer blockbusters to be a couple hours of fun, where I don’t focus on my real life. And that’s what I got.
I liked it. I’d happily see it again. Continue reading
The Stargate SG-1 Season Four Minicaps is busy keeping this generator running. Also, his name is Kenala. Who’s this Stargate SG-1 Season Four Minicaps you are referring to? That name sounds familiar…
Last time, SG-1 have been busy securing their alliance with the Tok’ra (brainwashed assassin interference notwithstanding), and dealing with a disaster on a Russian Stargate program. And hey, those death gliders nabbed back in season two? We’ll find out what happened to them in this installment of minicaps… Continue reading
The Stargate SG-1 Season Four Minicaps has been brainwashed into being a sleeper assassin. So just be on guard for a while.
SG-1 has been in the need of a breather after stopping the Replicators arriving on Earth (and losing one of the Stargates in the process), helping the Asgards fight the metal bugs, and helping out the Tok’ra on some particularly dicey missions. You think the team will get some down time? Not a chance! Continue reading
The Stargate SG-1 Season Four Minicaps is busy fumigating itself based on a Replicator infestation.
So last season ended with SG-1 getting to meet the current troubles of their allies, the Asgard. It’s the robot insects known as the Replicators, who assimilate technology and, true to their name, replicate more of them. In order to keep a Replicator-infested Asgard ship from landing on Earth, the team sets it to burn up in Earth’s atmosphere. The team (minus Daniel, who’s bedridden and unable to enjoy the fun of fighting a new alien race) appears to have escaped the burning ship via Stargate, but for all their efforts, a Replicator survives the crash and is now on Earth! Where did the team end up, and will they be back in time in stop the Replicators from taking over the planet? Obviously, yes, but let’s see how we get there… Continue reading
Welcome back, Arrowheads, for this look at the good and bad of the third season of Arrow! Considering how much I enjoyed season two, would this season measure up? The short answer is: not really. The long answer we’ll start talking about below, beginning with the good points of season three: Continue reading
Memorial Day doesn’t mean a lot to most people- it’s a day off from work punctuated by BBQs and maybe some fireworks. And that’s OK. Continue reading
