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

    “Nothing is so painful to the human mind As a great and sudden change.” As we near the end of the 2015-16 network television seasons, most shows are slowly but surely leading viewers to a particular end game. For us fans of Grimm, while we may see the end in sight just over the horizon, […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: Good To The Bone’

    Posted Saturday, April 23rd, 2016 06:00 pm GMT -4

    “The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones.” For the second straight week, Grimm throws a half-dozen subplots at viewers and, not for the first time, I wonder how in the world all these strands will be tied up by year’s end. But, per the usual formula, […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: Versus Zoom’

    Posted Wednesday, April 20th, 2016 01:21 pm GMT -4

    Sometimes, terrible things happen to us when we’re children. Things that can define who we become, whether we want them to or not. Some of us become stronger. The people who took me in helped me heal and move past everything that happened. They’re responsible for who I have become today. But I know that […]

    Posted Saturday, April 16th, 2016 01:30 pm GMT -4

    “Revenge Is the act of passion, Vengeance Is an act of justice.” Nick and the gang are back, Grimmsters, and as we build to an inevitable firestorm waiting for us at season’s end, the Portland detectives are dealing with a murdered teen and a new type of Wesen ritual centered on honor and justice. Things […]

  • TV recap: ‘Lucifer: St. Lucifer’

    Posted Tuesday, April 12th, 2016 02:00 pm GMT -4

    Lucifer the philanthropist? Possibly the most self-centered character to grace the small screen channeling his inner saint? This week’s Lucifer showcases another side of the devil, one that Chloe, of all people, isn’t too crazy about. Speaking of Detective Chloe, it’s the morning after her drunken ‘come on, sleep with me’ debacle on the heels […]

    “We are each our own devil, And we make this world our hell.” A man preaches the word of God, using his Wesen state to instill hope while Nick and the gang continue to look for answers to the treasure of the Seven Knights while Eve takes extreme measures to find out what’s going on […]

Their first clue comes from the likeliest of unlikely foes…Crowley. Starting off in the last place one would guess for a Supernatural episode, we catch up with the […]

  • TV recap: ‘Grimm: Skin Deep’

    Posted Saturday, April 2nd, 2016 09:00 pm GMT -4

    “It is amazing how complete is the delusion That beauty is goodness.” Beauty, it’s only skin deep right? Unfortunately for Summer Blake, it becomes a life-draining experience when, after a marathon photo session with Malcolm Caulfied, Wesen, she gets her beauty (and age) sucked from her to the extent that when her roomie comes back […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Supernatural: Red Meat’

    Posted Thursday, March 31st, 2016 01:00 pm GMT -4

    What’s better than being thrust into the thick of a butt-kicking fist fight with a couple werewolves in ‘Supernatural’? How about ending the fisticuffs with Sam getting a bullet in the gut before a flashback to 48 hours earlier… It’s seems like the Winchesters have been spinning their wheels for the last few weeks, unable […]

  • TV Recap: ‘The Flash: Flash Back’

    Posted Wednesday, March 30th, 2016 02:00 pm GMT -4

    “I let it happen again. I trusted someone I shouldn’t have. Jay Garrick… Zoom. Just like I trusted Harrison Wells, or Eobard Thawne. You see what I mean? I made the same mistake twice; I thought they wanted to teach me how to use my powers, train me to get faster, but they didn’t come […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Grimm: Lycanthropia’

    Posted Saturday, March 26th, 2016 06:00 pm GMT -4

    “The world is full of obvious Things which nobody by chance Ever observes.” There are fillers and then there are episodes like this week’s Grimm — a filler of epic proportions that offers little in the way of forward progress for any of the current story arcs. With that said, there are a few sprinkles of […]

  • TV recap: ‘Supernatural: Safe House’

    Posted Thursday, March 24th, 2016 02:00 pm GMT -4

    For better or worse, nearly all hauntings start in a house. This particular one is in Grand Rapids, Michigan where Naoki and her baby girl, Kat, are still getting settled into their new home. In the middle of Naoki tearing down the living room wallpaper, Kat screams. Something’s in the house, she tells Naoki, and […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Lucifer: A Priest Walks into a Bar’

    Posted Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016 04:00 pm GMT -4

    A priest walks into a bar… But, before we get to the obvious joke, after turning down a chance at some routine debauchery, Lucifer has some couch time (of the professional variety) with Dr. Linda. She points out that he may be lonely, a prospect Luc scoffs at. “Being alone,” she says, “and being lonely […]
