Current Favorite Show (or Something Like That)

Heyo, friends! Long time no see. Netflix has been killing it in the Marvel universe, with with Jessica Jones and Daredevil already locked in for season two, and Luke Cage and The Punisher soon to be release, this fall’s TV line up is really starting to look up.

But for today’s post, I thought I’d share something that has recently peaked my interest, something that I sat down to watch and managed to binge watch in less than a day. It’s a show that has caught my attention ever since it was announced. That show is Stranger Things, a new hit original series on Netflix.

This show. This damn show. Stranger Things has been on my radar ever since it debuted its amazing first trailer which I happened upon in a theatre one day. It’s an amazing, nostalgic show that is all about life and its strange things, all of which surround a missing boy, a found girl, and a mystery that’s waiting to be solved.

Isn’t that poster amazing as hell?! I finally finished this show and without going into spoilers, just wanted to share the word about this one show, this one amazing show. I haven’t gotten this into a show in quite sometime and just want to say this: WATCH THIS SHOW! Between the kids, the story, the soundtrack, the visuals, and Winona Ryder, Stranger Things is a gem. A beautiful, rare gem.

This is just one of my favorite things I’ve seen in recent months.

Star Wars Rebels: “Twilight of the Apprentice” – A Reaction in Gifs

So the Star Wars Rebels season 2 (“Twilight of the Apprentice”) finale just aired on the East Coast on DisneyXD and I’m honestly a mess right now. I do plan on writing up the episode and my feelings about certain things, but that’ll be a few weeks, so until I do write an extensive, way too thought driven post about how beautiful and wonderful Twilight of the Apprentice was, I thought I’d share my thoughts… in gif form. From start to finish, I was a mess who eventually cried and felt pain like no other. So yeah, here’s my reaction in gifs. Throw me in the dumpster when you’re done reading this.

SDCC 2015: Day 4 aka the Final Day Wrap Up

Can you believe we’re finally on our final day of SDCC 2015 wrap ups?! Makes me so sad, but also really happy because it means we’re that much closer to SDCC 2016. I’m very excited for 2016. I think the SDCC coverage on here will be better than ever and that makes me so so excited!

IMG_6763I don’t have much to say about the final day other than it was another press day, but also a farewell day. Most of my friends left Saturday, so I spent it wondering, eating (Syfy cafe = the best!), and most importantly, talking to the cast of Supernatural! It was such a fun press room. I made some new friends and enjoyed listening to everyone talk about what’s to come and what they hope for! (Watch all of my interviews here!)

IMG_6803The rest of my day, like I said, was spent finding friends, shopping a little bit more, and saying goodbye to not only SDCC, but California. We left the con around 4-ish and headed for the airport where we spent quite a few hours sleeping and eating. It was boring, yet fun.

IMG_6811And then it was over. This trip has been one of the best and that title doesn’t come easy. It’s never about the celebrities or press rooms, but about friends and fun! SDCC 2015 proved to top ALL past SDCC’s which was hard for me because 2013 was the best year, or so I thought. Yeah, we had a few MINOR hiccups on while in San Diego, but other than that, it was such a perfect 5 days. Now… let’s do it all again next year! 😉

SDCC 2015: Day 3 Wrap Up

I can’t believe I’m more than halfway through my SDCC 2015 wrap up posts. SDCC this year felt like it went by WAY too fast and looking back at everything I did, I understand why. I kept myself busy 24/7 and day 3 was no different!

IMG_6593The 3rd day of San Diego Comic Con was a pretty big one for me! Mainly because it was press room day for me. I’d never done a press room before SDCC, so the nervousness/excitement had gotten to me by morning. The first press room I did that day was Ash vs. Evil Dead! I was very grateful I grabbed that room this year because, incase you didn’t know, I’m obsessed with The Evil Dead! Ash is one of my all time favorite characters and the movies are some of the best horror films out there. Doing the press room was actually REALLY relaxing. You just sit and chat with everyone and make friends with fellow writers. I honestly didn’t expect it to be that relaxing, but I loved it. (You can listen to all of my cast interviews here!)

After that, I headed over to Nerdist Conival to hangout with the SDCC gang! We went for laser tag and came out with a beautiful new friendship! Incase you missed our flailings on Twitter and/or Instagram, we the cast of The Maze Runner play laser tag. We also said got to speak to Dylan O’ Brien. IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER!

IMG_6606After playing laser tag, I ran over to do the Supergirl press room which was probably my favorite of the con! I met some new friends and got to listen to everyone talk about the new show. You can watch all of my interviews that I did with the cast right here.

IMG_6661Another highlight of my con was talking to Robin Lord Taylor while at the Gotham signing! He was so nice and made my day! Seeing the rest of the cast was pretty damn great as well.

Speaking of casts, it was then time for me to run over to NERD HQ and see The Maze Runner panel which I was super lucky to get tickets to! It was a really fun panel and I actually shared more of my thoughts on it over at Agents of Geek, which can be read here.

IMG_6685You would’ve thought I’d have been worn out by the day, but nope because right after, my friend Joie texted me saying there was room in Hall H for the Warner Bros. panel. I ran and met up with Gladys and guess what?! We got in!!! We all got to see the cast of Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Gotham, and Supergirl. We even got to see the pilot episode of Supergirl. So worth the energy.

IMG_6752It was such a fun day! I didn’t have that much planned, but everything worked out perfectly and I was so so excited to see everybody! Till tomorrow… the very last day…

Agent Carter Google+ Hangout Announcement/Episode #1

Remember when Agent Carter premiered the other week? Remember how amazing it was and how no one could stop talking about it? Well, during my spoiler free live tweeting of the premiere, I put out a tweet saying I’ll either do a blog post about the episodes or a Google+ Hangout… I seriously thought I’d do a Google+ Hangout by myself because I really loved the show and thought it featured lots of things that are better spoken than written. Well, I got a few responses from my blogger friends, Gwen (The Geeky Squib), Joie (JoieFatale.com), and Usagi (Usagi In Wonderland)! They actually really liked the idea and thought it be fun. One thing led to another and now we’ll be doing it as a weekly thing! Yep, we will be doing a live Google+ Hangout every Saturday at 6:30PM PST/9:30PM EST. (Times are subject to change because adult responsibilities.) The link will be sent out hours beforehand if I can set it up on time. It will all go on my YouTube channel, Travis The Grimm.

Every week, we’ll each get a video! Basically this means that we’ll each make a post every week showcasing our Hangout for that week. So instead of writing it for ourselves each week, we’ll just share said blogs main post about. Was that confusing enough for you? I hope that made sense.

I’m so excited and I hope you’ll join us!!!

Here’s our first hangout:

Each week, one us of us will cover/upload the video. So one week, I’ll upload it to mine, write about, then the next it’ll be Gwen, Joie, or Usagi and etc,,, I hope that makes some sort of sense! Make sure to follow us all on Twitter for when we’re going live and for when our blog posts are up so you can watch the videos if you missed them the first time around.
