The Geekly Forecast: Apr 27th – May 3rd, 2015

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

TV: Oliver is officially heir to the Demon, and it’s kinda sexy. So yeah, watch Arrow
Music: Typically I pick whatever will be popular or something really weird. If you want popular, go with Raekwon’s F.I.L.A. or Zac Brown Band’s Jekyll + Hyde. Personally, I am really liking the sound of Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld Never Were The Way She Was. It is so pretty!
Netflix: I may or may not be joking, but Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde are both on Netflix on Friday, and I *might* skip Avengers 2 for this fest.
Movies: Just kidding! GIVE ME ALL THE AVENGERS 2!!!!!!!!!! ALL WEEKEND!!!!!!! CAPS LOCK INTENDED!!!!!!!
DVD: For a feel good kids movie Paddington is the best choice. For an intense rush with some laughs try Inherent Vice. But if you are 90’s kid, there is no question that Backstreet Boys: Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of is the only DVD to purchase this week.

TV:If you believe in science, and you should, then you need to watch Star Talk, starring Neil deGrasse Tyson. His first guest is George Takei. I think that should be enough said.
Music: There aren’t a lot of choices out there, but if there is one to recommend, it would be Low Cut ConnieTheir music videos are pretty hilarious, and that is the winning factor this week.
Netflix: Eh… maybe still watch Daredevil? This isn’t a great week for Netflix.

The Geekly Forecast: Mar 30th – Apr 5th, 2015

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

TV:  Arrow and Flash are still strong choices for TV, now that shows are starting to drop off like flies. I’m particularly interested in how The Flash ends up. That Harrison Wells guy is a tricky bastard.
Music: It took him forever and a day to release it, but Ludacris is finally releasing his 9th studio album, Ludaversal. It might not shine like his old stuff did, but there is plenty of star power on this record.
Netflix: I’ve never gotten a chance to see Underworld before, so streaming it on Netflix sounds like a grand idea before I decide to binge on the other sequels.
Movies: 7 Fast, 7 Furious! I wasn’t even old enough to drive when the first 2 movies came out, but I loved them. Now that the saga is coming to a bittersweet ending, I’m glad the crew got together for one last ride.
DVD: Gotta get Interstellar. F**kin space, man!! Check out the review if you don’t believe me.
