Simpsons Did It!: “New Kid On The Block”

the-simpsons

It wasn’t that long ago that Bart was down on Milhouse for discovering girls and having a girlfriend.

Man, it sure is a shame Milhouse is nowhere in this episode, because he could have gotten in some much-deserved gloating at Bart’s expense.

The Rise Of Cinematic Universes

I'm sure it is only a matter of time...
I’m sure it is only a matter of time…

Recently, it was announced that a new Scooby Doo movie would launch a Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe.  We also know that the Men in Black/21 Jump Street movie is supposed to actually happen.

Basically, that means that anything can be a cinematic universe these days.  While sitting around the Gabbing Geek Editorial Office, I came up with a few of my own.  See them after the cut.  Hollywood, feel free to use these for a small piece of the gross.  Not the net.  I won’t be screwed over that way.

Bento Review: Edge Of Spider-Verse

23439926

Comic Bento apparently wanted me to horn on the storied work of one James “Jimmy” Impossible, who wrote extensively on all things Spider-Verse.  I mean, he wrote seven long posts chronicling every inch of Spider-Verse.  That was before he went insane trying to do the same with Convergence and the entirety of Secret Wars.  See the efforts of his madness with parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

Heck, Jimmy covered all the issues in this trade in the third part of his work there.  But I’m writing a review, while Jimmy was giving a plot summary/commentary.  That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it.

Bento Review: Alice Cooper Volume One: Welcome To My Nightmare

I’ll give the folks at Comic Bento this much:  they routinely send me stuff I would normally never read.  It hasn’t always been worth it, but it happens.

Which would explain why I’d ever be writing a review for Alice Cooper.

It’s Jimmy’s Birthday

These days it’s just Jimmy and me pumping out most of the articles here, while the senior Geeks either look for Watson or prep for the greatest podcast episode ever or something.

But today’s Jimmy’s birthday.  Wish him well.  It’s not right to upset a Canadian on his birthday.

The face of every Geek on at least some of the things on this list.

2016.  Did any of us think we’d live this long?  Yeah, probably.  We’re Geeks, not morbid.

So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious?  See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.

(No) Podcast Reaction: The Watson Is Missing Edition

dbag
Have you seen this man?

This week on the podcast, there wasn’t one.  In fact, this marks the second podcast-free week in a row.

In fact, there’s also been a slowdown in Gabbing Geek article production if anyone cared to notice.  The reason for both these things is sad and unfortunate.

Watson is missing.  Please help us find our Watson.

Muppets Episode 4

the-muppets-tv-show-title-card-600x332

Gabbing Geek contributor Greg has been rather baffled about how anyone (let alone Jimmy, Jenny, or myself) could possibly be enjoying The Muppets.  It hasn’t been working for him.  He’s been wondering what he’s been missing, is there something wrong with him, or with the rest of us, and why hot dogs come in packs of ten but hot dog buns come in packs of eight.

I don’t have answers for any of those questions, but let me attempt to address his concerns while discussing last night’s episode after the cut.
