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.
This movie was made for geeks. Surprised I haven’t heard of it sooner. Here’s why I think you too should watch this corny, adorable, and shockingly over looked movie from 2009.
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.
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.
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.
Hey nerds, sorry it’s been so long since I have written. But I am going to give you a good old opinion-laden post today to make up for it. Your favorite Lilith might have been too busy to write the last two weeks, but that doesn’t mean I stopped enjoying all things geek. And in my attempt to catch up to the legendary Whovians among the Evil Geeks I have successfully watched the first four seasons (well, the first four of the reboot that is) of Doctor Who. That means I have completed up until the last of the David Tennant season, but have not gotten to partake in any Matt Smith or Peter Capaldi episodes yet. What it does mean is that I have gotten to know Martha Jones, Rose Tyler, and Donna Noble, as well as some other companions, pretty well. And like a true Evil Geek, I have opinions to be expressed. So here you are folks (with some associated spoilers as well).
