Top 10 Ways to Provoke a Geek Argument

I found this fascinating quote today:



Geeks, as a general rule, are pretty easy-going. We like to think things through, so passionate confrontations aren’t commonplace for us. When we get well and properly provoked, though, watch out! We won’t stop talking until every last point that we can think of has been made at least twice. So, what do you say to provoke a geek? Glad you asked!Top 10 Ways to Provoke a Geek Argument, Jun 2009

Star Trek!

That's right ladies, I saw Star Trek finally.  I had hoped to see it sooner, but my present medical condition made sure of me waiting a week after it's premiere to witness it's wonders.

Almost all of the cast was amazing.  Perfect casting for almost everyone.  My one question was about the Winona Ryder as Spock's mother turn, as she was always in age makeup.  Either something hit the cutting room floor, or we could be looking out for a pre-prequel.  Who knows.  

Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Sulu, etc...  All great casting.  Kudos.

I loved the action.  It was fun to see the Enterprise on the big screen in it's updated, yet still old school form.  And the best part, it was funny.  So much humor in the movie, it didn't lose the feel of the original tone and characters.

To address the time travel bit.  They had to do it.  Definitely a bit of "how convenient" and I'm not going to blow it by going on about it, but one scene wrote the filmmakers out of any present and future continuity gaffes.  Pretty interesting way around it.

Great movie, go check it out!  Now.  

I think I might go see it again... maybe in IMAX!

Catching up again...

So, folks, we're still waiting to hear if the geektastic shows we love like Chuck and The Sarah Connor Chronicles are going to get cancelled or not.

Get out there on the blogs and twitters of the world and make the networks hear us. Save the good stuff.

Meanwhile, I hear that Heroes is going to continue. Ugh... I am still a week behind, because my motivation to watch that show is so lost.

Hoping the Rumors are Wrong...

It sounds like our buddies over at Fox (notorious for cancelling great sci-fi shows), are at it again.

I will be very disappointed if this show gets cancelled, it's been consistently getting better, and better. The writing seems to improve with each episode.

Recently, it's been solidly having those WTF? style episodes where it completely turns you on your head, thinking it will go one way, and then going another.

Please Fox, change your minds about about this one!
