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

    So what’s a world where a decorated police captain is a Capone-like smooth criminal, an assassin who doesn’t miss is now a cop that can’t hit water from a boat, and Barry’s greatest motivation for becoming his heroic self is alive and well? Welcome to Earth-2, ladies and gentlemen. After closing all but the single […]

    What does a virginal sports star, a Hollywood ‘fixer’, and the Prince of Darkness getting his identity stolen have in common? Why, episode three of ‘Lucifer’ of course! Off the bat things feel a bit different as Lucifer whispers in the ear of a lovely lady, coercing her to take the plunge. Said plunge is not […]

    “A sucker is born every minute.” Secret wars going on across the world and lake monsters snacking on tourists? Sure, one is a bit more harrowing than the other but both are at the forefront of this week’s Grimm. But before breaking down the remainder of the Diamond Lake monster tale, rewind back to the […]

    There’s no show out there that keeps in touch with past characters like “Supernatural.’ The aptly titled ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ brings it in spades as it puts the not-so-nuclear family of Sherriff Jodi Mills, former vampire lure Alex, and Claire (daughter of Castiel’s host, Jimmy Novak) at the forefront. With nothing doing on the […]

    Two years ago Two thugs hold a colleague over a vat of tar, demanding he give them some bank account information. After he does, they send him down, down, down into the pit and…moments later, the Particle Accelerator explodes. NOW… “There’s this song lyric I like: All the broken hearts in the world still beat.

    Ripped from the headlines, the son of a movie star killed trying to escape the ever watchful eye of the paparazzi… Okay, so maybe not “ripped” from the headlines. More likely cut and pasted. But anyhow, in our second of thirteen episodes of the ‘Lucifer’‘maxi-series’, we get more Lucifer goodness, some backstory on Chloe Decker […]

    “I have been bent and broken, But, I hope, into a better shape.” It’s official, ladies and gentlemen…Juliette’s back! Sort of… Well known for hitting the ground running, the first Grimm episode of 2016 picks up where last year left off. Nick, Hank, Wu, Monroe and Renard were surrounded by nearly two dozen members of […]

    What do you get when you mix a banshee, Viagra, a Golden Girls reference, and a dangerous, unstoppable attraction? Other than the beginnings of a bawdy joke, “Into the Mystic”, the latest episode of Supernatural pitting Sam and Dean against the Ireland beastie. The story begins 30 years prior when, in County Cork, Ireland, a […]

      “There are many reasons why we run. But usually, it’s to avoid what’s right in front of us; a decision to be made or a dilemma we have to face. Lately, for me it feels like running is all I’ve been doing.” As Barry’s voiceover explains, if he’s not running to or from danger, […]

    In the beginning… The angel Lucifer was cast out of Heaven and condemned to rule Hell for all of eternity. Until he decided to take a vacation… And with that simple lead-in, topped with Cage the Elephant’s “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” blasting from the stereo, Lucifer has entered the building and quickly steals […]

    Project Reborn The end is nigh. After months of buildup, we’ve reached the conclusion of Tim Kring’s ‘Heroes Reborn.’ And despite the up and down nature of this revival, there was a sliver of hope the finale would be able to recapture the glory of a ‘Heroes‘ show of years past. We pick right up where we […]

    So what happens when you’re trapped in the Cage with ole Scratch, nowhere to go and no one to get you out? For Sam Winchester, you get ready to endure some less than fun times with the Man himself, Lucifer. And just when you get ready for the worst, he throws you a curveball. Now, […]

    “I know I’m moving pretty fast, but stop me if you’ve heard this before: boy meets girl. Happens every day…except this boy was struck by lighting and became the fastest man alive. So, nothing is ever that simple.” If Barry’s got one thing right, it’s how things are never too simple. As with Arrow, just […]

    It seems like we’ve been at this forever, but we’re entering the stretch run for Tommy, Luke, Malina and our protagonists of the Heroes Reborn revival. Sadly, this week’s effort falls too much in line with the majority of episodes from 2015. We start in Bedford, Missouri where Luke and Malina pull up, still unsure […]
