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

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: There’s No Place Like Home’

    Posted Wednesday, January 28th, 2015 07:00 pm GMT -5

    “There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home. There’s no place like…” The loveable ginger Charlie returning and getting her torture on to some helpless judge? That’s not something you see every day. Neither is an egg-white omelet-making Dean who’s shunning booze and burgers (most likely boobs, too, but we don’t need to […]

    “Everyone has a hero, someone they look up to or admire. Someone they just wish they could be. It’s easy to believe in heroes. What’s hard is when our heroes stop believing in us.” The idea of heroes and their protégés has always been a big part in society and, like most things taken from […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Gotham: Welcome Back, Jim Gordon’

    Posted Tuesday, January 27th, 2015 07:45 pm GMT -5

    The heat is on in the city of Gotham, for the white hats and black hats alike. Jim Gordon’s back on the force while Fish Mooney, thanks to one Oswald Cobblepot, finds herself in the most precarious of situations, namely in the crosshairs of Don Falcone’s wrath. Both hero and villain take center stage this […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: Tribunal’

    Posted Saturday, January 24th, 2015 07:00 pm GMT -5

    “May the God of Vengeance Now yield me His place To punish the wicked.”  This week’s ‘Grimm’ wastes no time in connecting last week’s cliffhanger, opting to dive right into Monroe’s tribunal under the hateful gaze of the Wesenrein. Using the information they discovered on Acker, Nick and Hank bring Renard up to speed with […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Constantine: Quid Pro Quo’

    Posted Saturday, January 24th, 2015 01:00 pm GMT -5

    For the entirety of its limited run, ‘Constantine’ has provided partial back stories on two of its three main characters. This week, we finally get to see Chas’s accidental origins as he, Constantine and Zed race against time to save our favorite taxi driver’s young daughter. When bad guys start off summoning ill-favored clouds of […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: Revenge of the Rogues’

    Posted Wednesday, January 21st, 2015 08:00 pm GMT -5

    “My name is Barry Allen, I am not the fastest man alive. That title belongs to the man that killed my mother… “But not for long…” One thing is certain; now that he’s come face-to-face with the ‘Reverse Flash’ (a name even Professor Wells can get behind), Barry has been hell bent on improving his […]

    Bad tidings, both real and perceived, are haunting Dean and Crowley as they deal with unexpected events from their past. For Crowley, it’s his “evil bitch” of a mother, who’s plotting behind his back, putting the screws to his dreams via subtle witchcraft, while Dean’s trying to cope with the massacre at the cabin. He […]

    A week may have passed since ‘Gotham’’s 2015 mid-season premiere but the most recent big bad of Gotham City is keeping busy. Gruber’s first order of business is paying a visit to Irwin, an old colleague who have been keeping some of his tools safe. He’s a man whose purpose for the world becomes clear. “I […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Constantine: The Saint of Last Resorts: Part 2′

    Posted Saturday, January 17th, 2015 08:00 pm GMT -5

    There are just some things you don’t do. Picking a fight with an inebriated Hulk. Challenging Darkseid to a staring contest. Or trying to best the Flash in a race. Though all those examples won’t end well for the challenger, none are as bad as willingly inviting a demon into you, even if it’s to […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: Wesenrein’

    Posted Saturday, January 17th, 2015 06:00 pm GMT -5

    “He had them Brought before The court, and a Judgment was handed down.” Things are truly picking up in the wide world of ‘Grimm.’ When we last left our Portlanders, Juliette was undergoing a bit of a Hexenbiest facial, Wu’s Wesen experiences were driving him towards a second trip to the looney bin and Monroe got […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Gotham: Rogues’ Gallery’

    Posted Tuesday, January 6th, 2015 06:00 pm GMT -5

    After a month-long hiatus, ‘Gotham’ has returned to the fold and we’re immediately given perspective into how far Detective Jim Gordon has fallen for his defiance of the powers that be in an effort to clean up his fair city. Demoted to the most infamous of asylums (Arkham for the uninitiated), Gordon’s having the time […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Constantine: The Saint of Last Resorts: Part 2′

    Posted Saturday, December 13th, 2014 10:00 pm GMT -5

    Contrary to our beliefs and wishes, moving forward from past words and deeds is often a most difficult undertaking. This applies to life and, most specifically our titular anti-hero, John Constantine. His enemies are legion and mistakes that have damned his soul immense yet he soldiers on, fruitlessly hoping to one day atone for his […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: Chupacabra’

    Posted Saturday, December 13th, 2014 05:00 pm GMT -5

    “Cuide su rebano, nunca deje, Su lado. Cuide su sangre, El Chupacabra tiene hambre.” It’s the last ‘Grimm’ before the new year and, as any mid-season finale, we’re left holding the bag as we suss out the fates of Monroe, Juliette, and the disbelieving and fractured mind of Sergeant Wu. But first we need to rewind […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: The Things We Leave Behind’

    Posted Wednesday, December 10th, 2014 09:00 pm GMT -5

    The last few weeks of ‘Supernatural‘ has been a filler-driven ride of fun but meaningless hours (as it pertains to season ten’s narrative) but we’ve approached the halfway point, so surely there will be significant developments propelling us forward, right? Well, a bruised and bloodied Dean, Castiel revisiting the past, and Crowley still coming to […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: The Man in the Yellow Suit’

    Ever since we were introduced to Barry Allen’s horrific experience as he watched his mother die in a hurricane of red and yellow, we’ve waited for the moment Central City’s hero came face to face with his mother’s killer. Well, that time is now and, from the very beginning, we watch as the two speedsters […]
