About Darryl Jasper

Darryl Jasper profile photo
From a young age Darryl embraced everything that was geek. His first true memory of the cinemas was seeing the line wrapped around the building for “The Empire Strikes Back”. The light sabers and the Force had him hooked. Though it remains his favorite sci-fi creation, Star Wars was only the beginning. Star Trek soon followed and his obsession with the various iterations of the Enterprise took him to an actual convention. Between these mega franchises, Darryl enjoyed all the geek cartoons of his era: Transformers, GI Joe, M.A.S.K. Bravestarr, Silverhawks, Voltron, and the like. An avid reader, it wasn’t long before his sci-fi and fantasy partiality in movies transferred to his reading. Star Trek was the beginning and in a strange twist, led him back to the novelized world of Star Wars. It has been non-stop geek since. Though comic books and action figures have all been a part of his menu, movies, television, and books remain his primary focus. Oh, and he’s a pretty avid gamer to boot (PS3).
Favorites: Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, BSG, Star Wars, Star Trek, Peter H. Hamilton, Stephen King, Terry Brooks, Jim Butcher, Lord of the Rings, Constantine and Hellboy (the movies), Joss Whedon, the X-Men…the list is long but distinguished.
Location: Cincinnati, OH

    We’ve reached the fall finale of the Heroes: Reborn miniseries and, while some things change, others remain pretty much the same.

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: Plush’

    Posted Thursday, November 19th, 2015 04:11 pm GMT -5

    Halloween may be over but that doesn’t mean Supernatural can’t pay homage to the ‘holiday’ of ghouls and ghosts. Well, more so ‘Halloween’, a season 2 episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It may not be the most exciting of episodes but it does bring us back to Minnesota. And with Minnesota comes Sheriff Donna […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: Gorilla Warfare’

    Posted Wednesday, November 18th, 2015 01:46 pm GMT -5

    Sooner or later, every super hero has a crisis of faith. Something they’ve done or failed to do eats at their confidence, making them question their worth as a person and, more importantly, one who is identified as a super hero. Throughout his journey as the Flash, Barry Allen has had his fair share of […]

    “I think I had a mother once.” It’s time to move on. For the first two weeks, Grimm Nick Burkhart has been running all over the place, trying to figure out this new mysterious Uprising, find the kidnapped Trubel, and get used to being a father. These events have effectively prevented him from mourning the […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Heroes Reborn: Sundae Bloody Sundae’

    Posted Friday, November 13th, 2015 01:40 pm GMT -5

    Time was designed to move in one direction…ever forward. Allowing our lives to be a series of choices—threaded—one after another. These choices define who we are. Whether it’s to protect the family we cherish, the truth we know and the memories we hold onto. The past we cannot leave behind. Or the search for the […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: Our Little World’

    Posted Thursday, November 12th, 2015 05:30 pm GMT -5

    The teenage years, it’s hard on parents and kids alike. No matter if you’re Goldie, getting the disapproving glares from your mother due to your choice of snacks, the resident King of Hell trying his hand at parenting or the ageless entity taking residence in a human girl’s body…yep, growing up is damn hard to […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: Enter Zoom’

    Posted Wednesday, November 11th, 2015 02:23 pm GMT -5

    “Zoom always wins,” Dr. Light tells the unconscious Flash as she rips the emblem from his chest. Can it be true? To find out, we rewind the clock… 72 hours prior Barry talks with the Earth-2 Linda Park, incarcerated in the Pipeline. She never wanted to kill him, instead willing to take the life of […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: Clear and Wesen Danger’

    Posted Saturday, November 7th, 2015 06:00 pm GMT -5

    “Cherish those who seek the truth But beware of those who find it.” When you have a season premiere so relentless that a man doesn’t have time to mourn the death of his mother or girlfriend—let alone the fact that he’s a proud papa and his protégé has gone missing—there has to be a modicum […]

Erica […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: Thin Lizzie’

    Posted Thursday, November 5th, 2015 01:00 pm GMT -5

    “Lizzy Borden took an axe And gave her mother forty whacks. When the job was finally done Gave her father forty one.” Most of us have heard some rendition of folk rhyme immortalizing Lizzy Borden’s alleged murder of her family. Despite all the ghosts, ghouls, and cultural lore tackled in the series, this week’s Supernatural […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: The Darkness And The Light’

    Posted Wednesday, November 4th, 2015 05:30 pm GMT -5

    We all knew that, with the discovery of Earth-2, it was only a matter of time before that world’s Harrison Wells entered into the life of Barry and the gang. We’ve seen him along the peripheries for two episodes now but this week’s Flash puts this newest version of Harrison Wells the center of attention […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: The Grimm Identity’

    Posted Saturday, October 31st, 2015 07:00 pm GMT -5

    “It is not light that we need, But fire.”  If there was ever a case of a show hitting the ground running, wow, the Grimm season five premiere does that and so much more, barely giving the characters and TV goers alike, not much room the breathe. The whirlwind begins seconds after last year’s finale […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Heroes Reborn: June 13th-Part 1′

    Posted Friday, October 30th, 2015 02:41 pm GMT -5

    The Unity Summit—where it all began. Fresh off the heels of—by far—the best episode of Heroes Reborn to date, Hiro and Noah traverse the crowds of the June 13th Odessa Summit in search of Erica Kravid and the bombs that will kill thousands and, worse, created cavernous divide between humans and Evos. Noah’s previous experience […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: Baby’

    Posted Thursday, October 29th, 2015 01:00 pm GMT -5

    Every now and then, a show takes an approach to storytelling so unique as to overshadow the plot lines and instead have us focused on the audacity and beauty of the artistic approach. This week’s ‘Supernatural,’ rightfully titled “Baby” gives us a glimpse into the everyday world of our favorite monster hunting duo from the […]
