The Geekly Forecast: May 11th – May 17th, 2015

The Geekly Forecast is a weekly preview of all the neat stuff coming to screens, stores, and living rooms near you!

Recommendations:
TV: So many great shows are closing up shop for the year (namely ArrowScandal), but let’s give one big teary-eyed goodbye to Mad Men.
Music: Patrick Watson will put you to sleep in a good way, but Snoop Dogg‘s grown man game gets my top pick this week.
Netflix: Fruitvale Station will leave you an emotional wreck.
Movies: There are some good choices out there with Pitch Perfect 2 and Good Kill out, but we’re heading to see Mad Max: Fury Road first.
DVD: For the kids, Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts should be a nice introduction to the lesser known aspects of Batman lore.
