The Geekly Forecast: June 22nd-June 28th, 2015

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

Recommendations:
TV: Two new sci-fi series hit the small screen, Mr. Robot and Humans. If you’re a TV buff, this should quell the addiction. Otherwise, who is even watching TV anymore?
Music: Nobody else is going to promote Hip-Hop, so we’ll do our best. Pete Rock‘s looooong overdo sequel to his hit instrumental album comes out this week. He’s a legendary producer, so you have to give this album a listen.
Netflix: It might look like BET’s version of a Lifetime movie, but Beyond the Lights looked decent enough for a date night movie.
Movies:  Rounding out a month that had three of the year’s best films (Jurassic WorldDOPEInside Out) is Ted 2. Why not?
DVD: Save those precious DVD monies. You’ll need them for video games…
Video Games: So, uh… a new Batman game comes out on Tuesday. It’s kind of a big deal.
