Finally, after months of going going going I am done! Here’s the checklist:

Finals: check.

Graduation: check.

Vacation: check.

New job: check.

Get this blog up and running again: well…..I’m working on it.

Now that it’s summer and things are steady again, I finally have the time to get back to posting. We’ve got a lot to talk about too, the HIMYM finale (still not cooled down about that one), a few new Marvel movies, Supernatural and Arrow had great season finales. Basically, this spring was a good one when it came to TV. I’m so happy to be back with you guys! Keep and eye out!

 

Why Sam’s Season 9 Development is Already Heart Breaking

We can all breathe guys. Supernatural has finally started up with its regular schedule again. Last week’s premier showed a lot of promise, and with Tuesday night’s episode I am pretty confident in saying that this season is going to rock. Like episode one says, “I think I’m gonna like it here”.

The last few seasons of Supernatural had me worried. I still loved it, and I watched like crazy, but the plot wasn’t as riveting as they had been. Season 5 was the peak of its storyline, and I feel like it has been steadily getting a little less interesting. This season, though, seems like they’re moving in a whole different direction. No more of the plain demon hunting or angel fighting. They’ve added a little bit of spice to the life of the Winchester brothers. Especially to Sam’s character development.

CW Bloopers Galore

It makes me a little sad that CW Week has to end. I really like celebrating these shows, but alas there are other things to discuss, and at least we still get to see the shows every week. So while, admittedly, I had no idea what I wanted to do for the end of the week  surprise, I decided why not mix it up with some videos? How about some bloopers today? Everybody loves bloopers!

Top Five Favorite Shows of All Time

Welcome to the first ever Tuesday Top Five! I have a lot of TT5 ideas already (bromances, characters, episodes, etc) but since we’re all still getting to know each other here, I figured I’d keep it simple. So today, I list my top five favorite shows of all time. Now, I’m sure I’m going to slap my forhead later and remember a rather important show that should have made the list, but for now this is it. Drumroll please…here’s my favorite five shows!

Geek to TV: Origins

Hello everybody! And welcome to my new blog, Geek to TV. This little project has been about a month in the making, and I am very excited to get everything started. As a little intro, before I get into the real content of this site, I figured the first day’s article could just be a little insight onto what this blog will be and what you can expect to see. Obviously, it is a TV blog. That seems pretty straightforward right? Awesome. Let’s move on.

As a writer, I have always enjoyed a great story. And that obsession of mine has been transferred over to a love of television that annoys almost everyone I talk to. I just find the general concept so interesting: the fact that now-a-days we’ve transferred from the whimsical sitcoms of the 90s to these intricately plotted shows. They’re like the micro-fiction of movies. From the witty banter of BBC’s Merlin, to the strong emotional chemistry of the Winchester brothers, right down to the complex and horrifyingly ingenious plot twists of Doctor WhoI am obsessed. But alas, my love of discussion for these shows (as well as a crazy amount more) can only reach so far when talking to people who have never sat there and put themselves through the emotional trauma of watching them.

Then, a little while ago, I discovered an article about the final episode of Merlin. A ‘Merlin’ retrospective: The platonic love story of Merlin and Arthur, was written by a woman named Selena Wilkin. Some of you may be aware of this article. And if it’s not dear god go read it because it is so beautifully written, that I was actually in awe at the final lines. As a fiction writer (and reader) I am very aware of the feeling I get when I read an inspiring passage, but I have never felt that way about a factual article until now. Her words not only made me love the ending after fits of hating how upset it made me, but it made me understand why I loved the show so much. So I thought, “Hey, why can’t I do something like that with my vast, pointless knowledge of TV shows?”

And thus, a blog was born.

Here, I hope to captivate an audience of equally adoring fans with ideas and thoughts around familiar episodes, theories, and general discussion of how indescribably awesome these shows are. There will be a lot of posts, a lot of shows, and a lot of fangirling. Whether it’s through articles, video posts, or whatever else I decide to throw on here: you will see some serious postage.

So there you have it, folks. Welcome to Geek to TV! I hope to hear from all of you and I hope you guys like all of the nonsense I come up with. Obviously the site as of now is a bit rough, but once we get some more content I’m sure it will look a lot lovelier, so bear with us. Keep an eye out next Thursday for a nice little catch-up of this summer’s shows! And don’t forget to follow us here on our blog and out there in the world of Twitter (@geektotv)

PS—Wilkin’s article can be found here. It isn’t a long read, and Merlin fans you’ll be glad you did.
