Geek Review: Jessica Jones

jessica_jones_logob

Disney owns a lot of stuff right now.  It freaked me out a wee little bit last year when I stopped at a Disney Store last Christmas and was reminded they now have Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and the Muppets.

Point is, we here at Gabbing Geek have inadvertently ignored one of those properties because another one just put out a new movie.

Anyway, here’s some thoughts on the new Netflix series Jessica Jones.  SPOILERS after the cut.

Geek Gear Is Here: Aluminum TARDIS Jewelry Box

tardis-jewelry-box

Hello Doctor Who fans, have we got a jewelry box for you. Redditor ashe7 created this aluminum TARDIS jewelry box which separates into three sections—two of which are lined with adhesive felt to hold jewelry.

Don’t get too excited – because this is a one of a kind piece that currently isn’t for sale. But if we all unite our sonic screwdrivers, maybe we can convince Ashe7 to make a few more for us to buy! Whadda-ya-say!?

See more awesome photos of how this was built.

And Now…A Doctor Who Trailer

The safest way to travel.
The safest way to travel.

Fans of a certain Doctor may have much to rejoice in as Doctor Who is returning in September.

Granted, fans of that Doctor probably already knew that, so the previous statement was meant for people who aren’t fans.  That’s the sort of mental gymnastics we here at Gabbing Geek routinely give our dozen or so regular readers who don’t already work here.

Anyway, a trailer for the new season dropped at San Diego Comic Con, so see it after the cut.
