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

    Mothers, sons, and rock and roll: maybe not the ingredients one would expect from Supernatural but if the last twelve years of this show has taught me anything, it’s to expect unexpected blends of chaos. Not to be deterred from her near strangulation at Sam’s hands or impressive resistance to pain, Lady Antonia gets a […]

    Two familiar faces, a new meta, fathers sharing quality talks with their kids, and a floating tanker stand front and center on this week’s The Flash. Building off last week’s big kiss, Barry and Iris start on their journey to something more. For two people who’ve known each other the majority of their lives, what […]

    Of all the things I didn’t expect to learn in Monday night’s Lucifer is that our devilish anti-hero’s never owned a smartphone? With all the decadently delicious options of modern tech, Lucifer’s never taken the Apple/Android plunge? Mind = blown. All is not lost, however, as Lucifer more than makes up for the jaw-dropping faux […]

    Every boy needs his mama. Our beloved Dean Winchester is no different. And thanks to Amara, he is gifted with the one thing he never would have expected: Mary Winchester, as he lives and breathes. Yes, even after twelve years, Supernatural, as much as any show out there, knows how to reinvent itself. As resurrections […]

  • TV Review: ‘The Flash: Paradox’

    Posted Wednesday, October 12th, 2016 07:44 pm GMT -4

    No matter what we may think at the time—especially when we aren’t thinking—our actions have consequences. It seems obvious enough but all too often it seems that our heroes, the ones that fight for the greater good, oftentimes forget this little nugget. And Barry Allen’s the biggest offender… The first words we hear from Barry’s […]

  • TV Review: ‘Lucifer: Sin-eater’

    Posted Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 02:30 pm GMT -4

    Apologies and purpose are the words of the day for this week’s Lucifer where our devilish bad boy is working on a case of social media vengeance while at the same time questioning his lot in life. It’s a bit ironic that a show about the devil starting off with a guy being burned at […]

  • TV Review: ‘The Flash: Flashpoint’

    Posted Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 09:00 am GMT -4

    “There’s only one thing I know about life. I know some things happen by chance. And some things happen because we make them happen.” The wait is over. The Central City Speedster is back, folks, and he better be ready to hit the ground running because, once again, our fleet-footed protagonist has flubbed up the […]

  • TV Review: ‘Lucifer: Liar, Liar Slutty Dress On Fire’

    Posted Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 06:30 pm GMT -4

    Mama Morningstar is back! After a surprisingly early skip week following the season premiere (thanks, Presidential debates), Lucifer is back on track and our titular antihero has the one person he doesn’t want back in his life on the other side of the table, so to speak: his Mum. But Mama Morningstar (or Mama M)–played […]

  • TV Review: ‘Lucifer: Everything’s Coming Up Lucifer’ (Season 2 Premiere)

    Posted Tuesday, September 20th, 2016 04:00 pm GMT -4

    When one thinks of Fall, the first thing through their minds is start of football (college and pro). While I do the same, for me, Fall also signifies the return of first run prime time television. Such an exciting time. This week brings us the sophomore season premiere of Lucifer and while “Everything’s Coming Up […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: Alpha and Omega’ (Season 11 Finale)

    Posted Thursday, May 26th, 2016 01:00 pm GMT -4

    When God and his biggest gun are taken out, you know you’re in trouble. Add in a dying sun and it’s time to crack open a beer and wait for the end to come. Sounds like a Dean thing to do, doesn’t it? And he’s not wrong. In the aftermath of Amara gaining her second […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: The Race Of His Life’ (Season Finale)

    Posted Wednesday, May 25th, 2016 01:00 pm GMT -4

    After a season of back and forth, death, and torment, it’s finally come down to this. Barry Allen. Hunter Zoloman. The Flash versus Zoom for all the marbles. At stake? Friends, family and, the multiverse. But first…the death of Henry Allen. We watched last week as Zoom, the Flash’s greatest villain (as of Season 2), […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm Beginning Of The End’

    Posted Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 12:00 pm GMT -4

    “It is better to die on your feet Than live on your knees.” The Grimm finale has arrived, capping  a season of shocking transformations, surprising betrayals, and more than a few unanswered questions. So how do you put an exclamation point to such a season? Why, more of the same, of course but this time in […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: We Happy Few’

    Posted Thursday, May 19th, 2016 02:00 pm GMT -4

    Finally, after eons separated by fatherly absence and the responsibility of running Hell, Chuck and Lucifer face off. But there’s a lot more going on in “We Happy Few” than reconciliation.  It’s about taking Amara down and to do that, our Winchesters need to broker some very unlikely alliances and hope it’s enough to take […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: Invincible’

    Posted Wednesday, May 18th, 2016 01:24 pm GMT -4

    Mayhem. Carnage. Central City is being torn apart by Zoom’s meta-army. This ‘metapocalypse’—thank you, Iris, for the terrible name—is a perfect test for Barry Allen and his returned to the land of the powered. But ever since his interaction with the Speed Force, Barry’s been a bit too sure of himself. It’s a direct contrast […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: Bad Night’

    Posted Sunday, May 15th, 2016 09:00 am GMT -4

    “We have to distrust each other. It is our only defense against betrayal.” As overly cynical as the introductory text seems to be, considering the empty home he returns to, Nick Burkhart can probably relate. The woman he (seems to) loves and his baby boy are gone, taken by Adalind Schade and into the arms […]
