Non-Geek TV From The Geek Perspective: Archer

Gabbing Geek What We're Watching

There’s a lot of TV out there, and…holy hell, how have I gone this long doing short TV reviews for this site without covering Archer?  That’s downright screwy.

Oh yeah, this week I’m covering Archer.

Tom Recommends: Young Justice (Animated Series)

Gabbing Geek Tom Recommends v2

Animator Greg Wiseman has had a long string of animated series that have pleased fans but have always seemed to be cut short due to other factors.  He was forced off Disney’s Gargoyles and saw his Spectacular Spider-Man cut short due to the Spider-rights going to Disney.

Then there was Young Justice, an animated series set in the DC universe about a team of superhero sidekicks going on covert missions for the Justice League.

Non-Geek TV From The Geek Perspective: BoJack Horseman

Gabbing Geek What We're Watching

There’s a lot of TV out there, and some of it looks like a typical Hollywood satire with talking cartoon animals before becoming something much deeper.

Yes, this time we cover BoJack Horseman.

Podcast Reation: The “Do I Really Wanna Go There?” Edition

Technically, I haven't done a whole reaction to Watson article yet.  That will not change today.
Technically, I haven’t done a whole reaction-to-Watson article yet. That will not change today.

This week on the podcast, the podcast was late and I did not get to listen to it until Monday.  My non-geek wife wanted to spend the extended holiday weekend down the Jersey shore, which is not that much like that awful MTV show depicted it to be.  We go to a nice, working class vacation town, whereas that show was filmed in a place my wife has been calling “Sleezeside” since well before anyone with a stupid nickname, no discernible talent, and a camera crew ever stepped foot in the place.

But, my parents’ tiny house down there has terrible internet connections, so while I was able to download the podcast, listening to it while trying to do stuff with the missus wasn’t in the bag, and there was a good chance any attempt to post anything here would have been a disaster when the connection cut in the middle of the write up.  So, I gave the show a listen this morning and now, well, now I need to react because it is my (self appointed) job.

In fact, my parents’ unreliable wi-fi connection there means I am a bit behind on my DCAU rewatch and don’t know if Jimmy and I will get through our required three episode discussion before the week is out.

What will I react to?  The fact I probably would have lost that trivia game badly, too?  Or something else?

Now that my Bone reviews are over, I figured I need something to fill the void.  Besides, I’m not sure which dead superhero to write about next, so I’m going to start a regular column of personal recommendations from me to you.

We’ll start this week with my all-time favorite movie, Roshomon.

Mr. Show Coming to Netflix (Sort Of)

I had to check the date of the story to make sure it wasn’t from April 1st and I was just reading it after the fact.  That’s how excited I was to read that the team that did Mr Show w/ Bob and David was coming to Netflix to do a similar mini-series of sketch comedy specials!

Stars Who Only Play Themselves

My name does NOT appear in this article…

Some actors have great range.  They disappear into their roles like chameleons with such success, you forget they are acting.  Then there are the people who don’t know how to play anyone other than themselves.  These folks can be charming, even occasionally win awards, but they eventually get called out in a Gabbing Geek filler article!
