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

    For the last few months, we’ve all been wondering how Iris West—doomed to die at the hands of Savitar—would be saved. In that time, Barry and Team Flash have pulled out all the stops: tweaking small things, breaking the time travel rules, and even asking 64th century criminals for help. Desperation was sinking in within […]

    Time flies when you’re having fun. Or, when you’ve been somewhat disappointed in one of your biggest guilty pleasures. But, alas!   Faith, dear friends, in the things you like for they may eventually return to form and again bring you joy. At least for the most part. This week’s installment—and penultimate episode—doesn’t waste time as […]

    For twelve years, Supernatural has drawn its fans into a myriad of stories filled with adventure, laughs, pain, and heartbreak. Season twelve’s full-night finale offers every one of those Supernatural tenants and leave us fans asking the same question many of the previous finales did: What the frak just happened? Part One “Who We Are” […]

    24 hours until Iris West Dies Those words, coupled with Aurora’s ominous ‘Murder Song’ leads off the penultimate episode as Team Flash races against the seemingly inevitable moment where Savitar is born and Iris West dies. To save Iris, Barry must break a few rules, even one or two he’s sworn never to do. First […]

    The age-old question of what if God was one of us is answered in last night’s Lucifer when the petulant man-child Morningstar infiltrates a mental institution and comes face to face with his dear old dad. Well, sort of. Inundated with Maze’s overly exuberant desire to hang out, Chloe’s more than thankful to get out […]

    Well, we now know what that something is about Mary. In last week’s Supernatural, Mary Winchester discovered that those British Men of Letters (BMoL) arses were up to no good. Before she was able to get word to Sam and Dean, even though she could have dropped more than a “we’re in trouble” on that […]

    Cause and effect: it can be a real son of a gun, especially when you’re screwing with Time. And regardless of whether it’s for the greater good or not, we all know how much Barry Allen—no matter the iteration—loves dabbling with the timeline. We pick up where last week’s The Flash left off; with Barry […]

    Okay everyone, it’s time to talk about our feelings. Well, at least for Lucifer it is. Picking up minutes after last week’s revelation that Azrael’s Blade and the Flaming Sword of Eden are one and the same, Momma Charlotte begins her push for Lucifer to use the Blade to cut through the Pearly Gates and […]

    While it may have been a week for us Supernatural-ists, the events of last week occurred less than 24 hours ago for the Winchesters. A bit thrown by Castiel’s “Super Mario Power-Up crap”, Sam and Dean decide to head to Rock River, Wyoming after Alicia Banes—of the Banes twins (from “Celebrating the Life of Asa […]

    “I know who you are.” We knew it was coming this week but still, the Savitar lead-up and ensuing reveal was worth the wait. Taking place over a sixteen hour period where Wally’s gallivanting across Earth-3 with Jesse, “I Know Who You Are” deals with the future (obviously) and the core tenant of Barry Allen’s […]

    After several months in one of the weirdest scheduled hiatus moves for network television, Lucifer returned this week and we get the answer to the biggest question over these past few months: Though it’s been months to us, in the show timeline Lucifer’s only been gone a few weeks. While not earth-shattering in itself, he’s […]

    It’s a tall order for a show to affect me in a way that, the night after viewing, my dreams turn to it in a way to come to terms with what I just saw. Though one could argue there have been better Supernatural episodes this season, none have resonated with me like this week’s […]

    Back from the dead—or the annual Spring hiatus—The Flash returns this week with Barry doing what he does best: thumbing his nose at timeline etiquette. The good news is that, this time, he’s headed to the future: 2024 to be exact. Off the bat, we see that the future of Central City is far from […]

    A word of warning to all red shirt campers in the world of Supernatural: those that camp often die screaming. With Castiel in the wind and Mary in Texas hunting chupacabra (well, according to Ketch), the Winchesters are sent to Tomahawk, Wisconsin where they investigate a camper’s disappearance the previous night. One thing leads to […]

    So…that happened. If you thought Mr. Ketch was a heartless attack dog, well, he’s got nothing on the missus of the British Men of Letters (BMoL), who just so happens to be a her. There’s quite a bit going on in “The British Invasion”, with the primary story vein focused on the titular entrance of […]
