So last year, for my birthday, I wrote a list of things to do in the year–not a true Bucket List but simply a list of things to do before I turned 49. We’re now a bit beyond the next birthday–I’ve been busy so this is late–but it’s time to look back and see how I went: Continue reading 49th Year Bucket List: Reviewed
It’s time for another Weekly Geeky Question. Each week my friend Rod asks me some geeky question that I have to answer. We’re now up to Week #50, so we’ve been at this for a while. This week’s question follows on from last week, where we talked about disappointing story payoffs.
What are some of the most best story payoff’s that I have ever seen?
Well, it’s Weekly Geeky Question time, and we’re up to Week #49–with the end of 2018 approaching more rapidly than any of us are prepared to deal with. My Friend Rod is back with another question, and this time it’s about one of my favorite things, which is story structure. What Rod wants to know is,,,
What are some of the most disappointing story payoff’s that I have ever seen?
Well, it’s Weekly Geeky Question time, and unfortunately the trials of Real Life, Work and So On have resulted in my friend Rod not being able to share a do-able question with me this week. So to fill in, I’ll put forward my own, relatively simple one…but which will still result in a long-winded answer.
What do I think about Doctor Who?
Every week in 2018, the plan is that my friend Rod is going to ask me some geeky question that will answer in a post. This week is Week #46, and today’s question is one that Rod describes as quite basic–indeed, he wasn’t sure if it was something he’d already asked. But he hasn’t, and so hear we go.
What are some comics I’d recommend to a non-comic reader to get them started?
Every week in 2018, the plan is that my friend Rod is going to ask me some geeky question that will answer in a post. This week is Week #41, and this time around the question is the same as it was last time, because I didn’t finish it last time:
How would I save the DC Extended Universe (again)?
And finally, we arrive at the end of our countdown to my favorite fictional heroes. On this list of the final four, female characters finally outweigh the male, but only by the narrow margin of 2.0714 to 1.9286…
Very soon, on October 7 2018, Doctor Who will make its way back to our TV screens for the 11th season of the modern TV series. And when it does, it will in many ways be a whole new program, compared to what we saw last: a new Doctor (with a new gender), new companions, new showrunner. Probably a new version of the theme song and a new opening title sequence, a new TARDIS set and a new sonic screwdriver. And certainly a new story direction, with plot-lines like redeeming the Master or identifying the Hybrid a thing of the past.
And the countdown to my favorite fictional hero continues. In today’s post, we have focus on just 6 characters, rather than 10, just to slow it down a bit as we approach the top. Of these 6, 1 is female, and 5 are male. 4 are considered to be especially formidable hand-to-hand combatants. 2 were on the same superhero team together for years, and 2 were on another superhero team together for years. One of each of those pairs is the same character, and his two teammates were also partners with each other for years. Got all that? Good, let’s go…
And the countdown to my favorite fictional hero continues. In today’s post, we have 10 characters who for the third time are all male, although three of them are not human beings. Another two were born on earth, but mostly work in outer space.
