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 Review: ‘Grimm: Oh Captain My Captain’

    Posted Saturday, January 21st, 2017 01:30 pm GMT -5

    “You will face yourself again In a moment of terror.” The worm has finally turned. Backs against the wall, Nick and the gang are feeling the pressure of Renard’s crusade to take them all down. With few options, Nick embraces the age-old adage that ‘fortune favors the bold’ and revisits the ‘sorting hat’ transformation spell […]

  • TV Review: ‘Lucifer: Stewardess Interruptus’

    Posted Tuesday, January 17th, 2017 02:28 pm GMT -5

    After a month of waiting, we finally find out whether Chloe and Lucifer take a step towards being something more than friends and colleagues as Lucifer returns (albeit briefly) before enjoying a bit of a winter hiatus. On top of all that major UST (unresolved sexual tension for you fanfic noobs) we may have gotten […]

  • TV Review: ‘Grimm: Trust Me Knot’

    Posted Saturday, January 14th, 2017 02:00 pm GMT -5

    Man is not what he thinks he is, He is what he hides. Trapped like rats as a former ally closes in on them, Nick, Monrosalee, and the gang continue their fight against now-Mayor Sean Renard as he continues his insane obsession to see Portland’s Grimm dead and gone. Once again, we pick up where […]

  • TV Review: ‘Grimm: Fugitive’

    Posted Saturday, January 7th, 2017 05:00 pm GMT -5

    “Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.” Well, faithful Grimmsters, we’ve arrived at the final season of Grimm. Thirteen episodes to determine who wins Portland: Nick Burkhart or former police Captain/now Mayor Sean Renard. As it stands, an hour into the 13 chapter swan song of Nick and friends, it’s not looking too good from […]

  • TV Review: ‘Supernatural: Lotus’

    Posted Friday, December 9th, 2016 08:44 pm GMT -5

    I can honestly say I didn’t see that coming. This week was a CW mid-season finale palooza with The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (and other shows) officially calling it quits for the 2016 season. And while Supernatural didn’t have that WTF moment like Arrow, it did leave us wondering what the hell […]

  • TV Review: ‘The Flash: The Present’

    Posted Wednesday, December 7th, 2016 11:00 am GMT -5

    It’s The Flash midseason finale time and, as finales go—midseason or otherwise—“The Present” is somewhat of a mixed back. What it lacks insofar as a cliffhanger moment, despite a happy final shot, we’re left decidedly uneasy in the things to come… Whereas we’re left with the final thoughts of a deadly future, it’s apropos that […]

  • TV Review: ‘Supernatural: Rock Never Dies’

    Posted Friday, December 2nd, 2016 02:40 pm GMT -5

    Rock is dead…and the devil did it. Thanks to a pair of devil-romanticizing noobs and an actual feather from the Prince of Darkness’s wings, Lucifer is pulled from the ocean depths and back into the real world. Said feather allows him to temporarily heal his rotting meat suit (also known as the has-been rock star […]

  • TV Review: ‘The Flash: Invasion!’

    Posted Wednesday, November 30th, 2016 03:30 pm GMT -5

    Oh my stars and garters! When word first got out about the four night DC crossover a few months back, I was intrigued but not excited. Sure, anytime you get Barry Allen and Oliver Queen together—two guys who couldn’t be more different—there is fun to be had. Also, I thought the “crossover” aspects would be […]

  • Lucifer review – Quid Pro Ho

    Posted Tuesday, November 29th, 2016 01:18 pm GMT -5

      Finally, after a year and a half of speculation, we now know what makes Chloe Decker so special. Sort of… Before we get into the episode’s curtain call of a stunner, let’s start of where we left of last week: Charlotte ready to blow Chloe to ten hells. Before Lucifer’s mummy dearest presses the […]

  • TV Review: ‘The Flash: Killer Frost’

    Posted Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016 02:23 pm GMT -5

    If your excitement in this week’s The Flash was fueled by thoughts of seeing the full-on Killer Frost, I must warn you that disappointment may abound. However, if you get your kicks from Barry getting his butt outclassed, going all-in on that hero’s guilt thing, and getting hit with the least surprising end of episode […]

  • TV Review: ‘Lucifer: Homewrecker’

    Posted Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016 04:00 pm GMT -5

    A meddling mother, real estate wars, and a fallen angel still not ready to accept his newest lot in life…and, of course, only one person can find himself in the middle of it all (and more) than Lucifer Morningstar. Picking up on some of the developments from last week, Lucifer is trying to convince Amenadiel […]

  • TV Review: ‘Supernatural: Celebrating The Life Of Asa Fox’

    Posted Friday, November 18th, 2016 03:30 pm GMT -5

    So how do you spend your time after killing Hitler? For the Winchesters, it’s a quick visit with Sheriff Jody Mills that turns into a Manitoba road trip and a hunter’s funeral for fallen hunter Asa Fox, complete with a couple of uninvited guests. We start off in Manitoba, circa 1980 where a young Asa […]

  • TV Review: ‘The Flash: Shade’

    Posted Wednesday, November 16th, 2016 11:00 am GMT -5

    Wally’s dreaming big, Caitlin’s worse fears may be coming closer to a reality, and an ending more in line with a mid-season finale than the sixth episode of the season are all a part of this week’s The Flash. We knew it was coming the moment Edward Clariss had his visions of his Flashpoint life: […]

  • TV Review: ‘Lucifer: Trip to Stabby Town’

    Posted Tuesday, November 15th, 2016 02:46 pm GMT -5

    A celestial weapon in the hands of humanity, Lucifer making a deal with the exuberant Ella, and Chloe’s jealousy at her partner’s connection with said CSI are only a part of the fun and games we catch up to in this week’s Lucifer. Based on the title (“Trip to Stabby Town”), it’ll come as no […]

  • TV Review: ‘Supernatural: The One You’ve Been Waiting For’

    Posted Friday, November 11th, 2016 10:00 am GMT -5

    There’s not a show out there that does a better job of revisiting past characters or story lines than Supernatural. This week’s entertainment resurrects the Thule story line from season eight’s “Every Hates Hitler” (well don’t they?!). This time the boys find themselves headed to Columbus where an antique dealer and his customer were found […]
