Today, 49 Years and 11 Faces ago a New show aired on TV for the first time. That show was Doctor Who. Happy Birthday Doc.
Recently while watching an episode of the 1970’s series “Wonder Woman” I realised a very significant Superhero fact.
Wonder Woman is this attractive, super powered Hero until she puts on some normal clothes and a pair of glasses and becomes plain old Diana Prince Secretary.
Superman, The man of steel, A super powered Hero until he dresses in normal clothes and puts on a pair of glasses and becomes plain old Clark Kent reporter.
So working with these facts I reverse engineered the whole Superhero effect. And after hours of complex formulas and MATHS!!! I came up with the underlying logic of super powers. Glasses counter powers.
Armed with this knowledge I did the only sensible next step in testing my theory. I removed my glasses and put my pants on the outside, thereby granting myself Super Powers!!!
Turns out working backwards and taking a plain normal person, dressing them as a superhero and removing their glasses does not grant them superpowers 🙁
On a side note, I will accept full responsibility for the injuries sustained in this scientific experimentation. In hindsight, maybe the “Can leap tall buildings in a single bound” testing should have been jumping from the ground upwards, and not off the top of a tall building.
Also, Flying is not easy to learn when falling. Mother Birds are bitches for throwing their kids out the nest to see if they can fly!!!
Hopefully the casts will come off soon, and I’ll be back up on my foot, Who needs two legs really? I think I’m just one step closer to every humans goal of being a killer cyborg.
Mild Mannered Blogger and not super hero at all.
Today see’s the launch of a new Geek Youtube Media channel. “Geek and Sundry” Which promises to have some decent shows. Who needs a TV any more?
To kick off this new channel, “The Guild” released a new song/video that could be considered a geek anthem in the making!
William Shatner Star of Star Trek, TJ Hooker, Shit my Dad Says, Tek War, Boston Legal (& The Practice), And way too many other things to list here turns 81 today. Yes that’s right Kirk is 81, and I wish I look as young/good when I hit 81.
So we here at the Ninja Temple want to wish one of the big names in the Geek world a Very Happy 81st Birthday, and we look forward to seeing you on our TV’s for many more years.
Forty eight years ago today, a cranky old man who lived with his granddaughter in an old London junk yard, kidnapped a couple of school teachers who were just checking up on a pupils “What I did in my summer holiday” essay, and started an adventure that would last 48 years so far, become the longest running Science Fiction series of all time, and kicked of three spin off series (four if you count the failed K9 and Company).
What other TV show has had such impact on so many generations. With films, TV shows, Radio Plays, Books, comics, cartoons, games, etc. I can say not that many.
And in today’s climate when good shows get cancelled after one or two seasons, a show being able to span from 1963 to present day (Or the future really as they have already written the next season).
So we here at the Ninja Temple would like to raise our Sonic Screwdrivers in a sonic celebration of the Worlds favourite Doctor.
I have now finished watching “The Cape” and as such I need to revisit and update my review of the show. If you recall the original Review you will no doubt remember that I said “Anyone who likes action shows, or superhero shows will Like this show a lot. ” Well I need to update that view.
The show was originally designed to be a thirteen part season, unfortunately it was cancelled after just ten of the thirteen episodes were filmed. And as such they never made the extra three. And as such they never finish the story off, and leave many questions unanswered. You never see where they were taking different story lines, and it leaves you as the viewer unsatisfied at the end.
They start a Orwell ark with her loosing it slightly, painting everything white, and loosing herself in her mind. They start this just as season ends so never goes anywhere.
The Carnival of Crime are apparently training the Cape so they can use him in some big, dangerous, mysterious way that they hint at but never tell you.
In fact the final episode feels more like a penultimate, episode, or at least a penultimate to a two part season ending.
All in all I feel let down by the show, and would advise people not to bother watching it.
