Let Me Put My Suggestions In You: The Orphan Black Series

I think this suggestion is for all the ladies out there, though I could be wrong. It seemed like appropriate timing after the lead actress got what she deserved, an Emmy in a lead role for a drama. I recently checked out this series and am head over heels addicted, so even though it still hasn’t finished, I just had to tell you all about it, minor spoilers included if you continue.

TV From The Crypts: Torchwood Children of Earth

Greetings my villainous compatriots, Lilith here with some back logged reviews for you. Since the only things that everyone wants to watch these days seem to be either GoT or TWD, it’s nice to know that there are some past movies and TV shows we can all enjoy. And being that we are on an off year from the Whoverse, I wanted to catch up with some spin offs. Plus one never really tires of watching Jack Harkness.

TV From The Crypts: The X-Files

It’s been too long since I’ve written a post for you all, and here I come back with a shocker. This one is just as much a shock for me as it might be for you. No, I am not writing about the recent reboot of the X-Files. Instead I am writing about the good old classic TV show from the 1990’s. The show that I grew up loving, one that made me interested in pursuing a career in medicine, and got me all sorts of excited about all things science-fiction. It was probably my first on screen crush as well, as 12-year old me was head over heels for Fox Mulder. So here I am, over twenty years later, re-watching the classic and iconic TV show. Watching this show has left me surprised and shocked in many ways, and I want to tell you why. I doubt there will be many spoilers here, but just in case, be forewarned this will be full of spoilers, and revelations.

Let Me Put My Suggestions In You: Castle

This one is a bit off topic for me, but appropriate none the less. If you had asked me a year ago whether or not I would have a.) Agreed to watch a non-sci fi or fantasy show, specifically a cop show, and b.) Been raving about it to everyone as well as quoting cheesy one-liners from it on a weekly basis I would have said wholeheartedly no way. But my love of Nathan Fillion (from Firefly fame of course) convinced me to say at least give it a try. And here I am a year later writing you a suggestions post on why I think you too should take the plunge. Here’s my spoiler filled reasoning for you on why I think you should give Castle a try.

Let Me Put My Suggestions In You: The Dean Koontz Frankenstein Series

I think I have mentioned before that Dean Koontz has really grown on me as I have aged. As a younger teen I was scared of his novels much the way that I feared Stephen King stories. But as I have grown older I have come to find that Dean Koontz novels have a lot going on and are worth the fear they might cause. In fact, in the case of the initially three novel and now five novel series I want to talk about today, the Dean Koontz Frankenstein series, that perfect combination of horror and excitement was what makes it one that I am happy to suggest to you all.

Let Me Put My Suggestions In You: The Works of Madeleine L’Engle

Probably the event that set me on my nerdy, science-fiction filled life more than any other was the fact that my dad got so excite about watching Star Wars with me when I was very young, like 5 or 6. It quickly became a tradition for me: whenever I was home sick or home for a snow day, it was a “Star Wars Marathon Day”. I can thank the original Star Wars trilogy for getting me hooked on science fiction and epics. But I think I can thank Madeleine L’Engle for my continued plummet in to the world of science fiction and fantasy. Her young adult novels are perfect for an open-minded 10 year old, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Like Asminov for many others, I found L’Engle was one of the first authors that sparked my love of all things science fiction and fantasy, so I thought it only appropriate to dedicate today’s suggestion page to the wonderful writer.
