The Geekly Forecast: May 18th – May 24th, 2015

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

Recommendations:
TV: Say goodbye to Season 1 of The Flash, one of the best new shows on TV. A phenomenal 10th season of Supernatural also closes out.
Music: Hip-Hop heads will consider Murs‘ Have a Nice Life a must-buy, and former Lupe collaborator Gemstones‘ Blind Elephant seems great, too.
Netflix: I’ve been waiting for The Boxtrolls to come out on Netflix for a while, but Welcome to the Punch starring James McAvoy and Marc Strong is more up my alley.
Movies: You have to go see Tomorrowland. If you have a taste for horror, check out the Poltergeist remake. If you choose to see Human Centipede 3, go straight to jail. Do not pass go; do not collect $200.
DVD: Season 3 of Orange is the New Black streams starting June 12th. You can catch all the episodes on Netflix, but collectors still should pick up Season 2 on DVD this week.
