Star Trek Undies That Beam You To Another Galaxy

imlt_st_tng_uniform_3-pack_panties

Star Trek Next Generation undies! Impress your friends with captain’s status, if you dare show them. My advise is probably steer clear of the “red shirt” ones, only because we all know what happens to “red shirts.” That could really ruin a Monday!

Want some for yourself, Then head over to ThinkGeek – the pair will run you about $25.

Podcast Reaction: No Terminator?!? WTF?!? Edition

terminator-2-judgement-day-poster-3

On this weeks podcast the Geeks unveiled a List Of Truth™ about time travel movies.  Ranking “some of the better” time travel movies.  Who defined what were “some of the better”?  I’ll agree that most of the list contains good to great movies (I would not include Men In Black III in those categories, and I haven’t seen Looper, I know, I know…), but it seems to contain some glaring omissions to me.  Find them after the cut.

Another (Spoiler Free) Review Of Mad Max: Fury Road

madmax

I think anyone who reads this site and pays attention to bylines knows my thoughts on nostalgia.  Heck, I wrote a whole piece last week saying horrible things about Krull more or less for that very reason.  I wasn’t planning on seeing the new Mad Max at all for a number of reasons, ranging from not being a Mad Max fan to being generally against remakes.    But the reviews started coming in very positive, and Ryan and Watson were both raving about it, and hey, Ryan may like Krull, but Watson sure didn’t (he likes Clue), so that means there’s a variety of opinion out there.

So, I went.  And I loved it.  Further SPOILER-FREE comments after the cut.

Patrick Stewart: Beloved By The Geeks

We love this man.
We love this man.

Most geeks first experienced seeing Patrick Stewart in the role of the very un-Kirkish Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek:  The Next Generation.  Stewart had been an actor for years at this point, having been trained as a Shakespearean actor who played the London stage in tights that looked every sillier than the spandex uniforms he was asked to don for the first two years as Picard (Gene Roddenberry’s death allowed the producers to switch to more comfortable wool uniforms later in the series run).  Later on, he played a character that sheer dumb luck was designed to look exactly like him, Professor Charles Xavier.  Ask a number of geek fans if they know any other role he’s done, and they might be hard-pressed to name something.

Geek Love is not misplaced in this instance.  We should love Patrick Stewart if for no other reason than he seems to be having fun most of the time, and he may very well be up for anything.
