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!

 

Tragic Death Strikes in This Week’s Teen Wolf

The promos for MTV’s “Teen Wolf” have been hinting toward a death for a few weeks now, but I don’t think anybody expected it to be one of the main characters. Warning, there are obviously spoilers beyond this point. So if you don’t wanna know who dies I strongly recommend skipping over this post.

Psych Announces Its Final Episodes

psych-season-8-back-end

Following their win on our Tuesday Top Five’ favorite bromances, we got some sad news involving the futures of Shawn Spencer and Burton Guster. The most shocking part about last nights episode of “Psych” wasn’t Gus quitting his job, or the death of the Blueberry, but rather the knowledge of the show’s future fans were forced to watch with.

The Truth About the Bromance

What is a bromance? We hear the word constantly now a days. It’s thrown around like “chemistry”, and it’s often affiliated with the friendship between two guys. But what is it really? Wikipedia calls it: “a close non-sexual relationship between two men, a form of affectional or homosocial intimacy.” So basically, two guys are so close that their not just friends, they’re on, like, a whole other level. But the lines can be pretty blurred when it comes to the true definition. Continue reading

Psych Pulls Off A Wonderful Musical Special

psych

Have yourself a very psychic Christmas. Following closely behind the Doctor Who Christmas Special, “Psych The Musical” has held the number spot on the December specials I’m excited for list for a while. Keep in mind, I’ve only been a fan for a few months now. But I feel like I’ve been watching it for years. I got through all six seasons they had on Netflix fairly quickly because of how entertaining and addictive the relationships were. And with its silliness and the adorable pokes at themselves, “Psych: the Musical” was well worth the wait. Continue reading

A First Look at ‘Ravenswood’

Ravenswood

We’ve seen glimpses of the town of Ravenswood in this past season of Pretty Little Liars, but the mystery of this Hitchcock-esque town is continuing in ABC Family’s new show. Named after the town itself, this show follows PLL’s Caleb Rivers to the town as he searches for the answers to a bunch of different mysteries. It could skyrocket to fame, it could flop, we really have no idea at this point. But either way, let’s take a look at the first impressions of the show that aired Tuesday night.

Legend of Korra: Book of Awesome

I have to admit that the first time I watched Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra I was an ugly combination of excited and skeptical. The Last Airbender is up there on the list of my all-time favorite childhood shows. When I was in middle school, I used to live for Friday nights after dance lessons when they aired the new episodes. And once I got to college, and discovered the wonders of Netflix, my friends and I watched through the entire series at least three times. So Aang, Sokka, Katara and Toph all have a special place in my heart. However, while drastically different, I do love the new show. And this premier did not disappoint.

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.
