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

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

      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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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: […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    What do you do when you’ve seen the face of the devil? Dr. Linda’s having quite a time wrestling with that very fact after Lucifer’s epic reveal in last week’s episode. But while the good doctor has seen the literal face of evil, Chloe Decker’s experience is a bit more human but no less jarring. […]

    It’s almost a statistical certainty that, if a show clocks in at twenty plus episodes in a season, there are bound to be a few clunkers parsed in with the drama-filled goodness. And despite a very strong start, The Flash briefly falters this week, giving us the first forgettable episode of its third season on […]

    Two seemingly unrelated murders perpetrated by a lone gunman, Maze being a Halloween chaperone for an eight-year-old, and the most infamous of punishers—and devilish antihero—dealing with the guilt of his actions gives us a multifaceted episode in this week’s Lucifer. Last week, after Lucifer was forced to kill his brother Uriel, I said that, in […]

    With two season arc-specific episodes under our belts, week three of Supernatural takes things back a bit to its root with an old school ghost story. It starts in St. Paul, Minnesota where two people follow the cries of a child into an abandoned house only to become victims themselves. A listless Mary discovers the […]

    With the first three episodes of The Flash in the books and angling more towards serious issues, it was time we had an hour predominantly composed of fun. “The New Rogues” does just that, trading in Dr. Alchemy and flubbed up timelines for the lighter fare of relationships, replacements and, as the episode title proclaims, […]
