daredevil and game of thronesThis past weekend, I was in a rare state of geekiness. Friday, Netflix released all 13 episodes of Marvel’s Daredevil. For Sunday, Game of Thrones Season Five aired at 9pm and watched it on the new HBO Go app. Going forward, in the coming weeks, there will be new episodes of The Flash, Arrow, Agents of SHIELD which I can see the next day on my Hulu Plus service. I have three different options to watch my favorite shows and yet, I have to make a conscious choice on how to view them; to binge or not to binge?

Back in ye olden days, when there were just the big three networks: ABC, CBS and NBC and programming that I wanted to watch had to be done on the networks schedule. There were no vcr to record and watch my shows later. Flash forward to know, the choices of how to watch programs are now in control of the viewers; or at least a definite shift in our favor.

The traditional formats of network shows stretch their shows over the course of 8 to 10 months. Granted, I love this free model but when a show is getting really good towards the end of the season but I can’t stand the long waits between new episodes. Luckily, I can watch it on Hulu Plus and can play catch up with a couple of episodes already in the queue. This is great to do some mini binge watching during the week for a geek pick me up.

With the HBO GO app, I was able to watch the stream of season five of Game of Thrones at 9pm. Now, before I got the app, I did watch Game of Thrones through other options which required time to find it in the first place especially since I did not have cable. I am thrilled at having the HBO access due to watching the first episode. There were some bonus materials that I would expect on a DVD box set. Being new to HBO, I’m hoping that HBO does not follow traditional networks and delays episodes. There’s no need to follow the traditional tv models and for $14.99 a month, HBO Go better deliver.

Lastly, Netflix has the entire Marvel’s Daredevil series already for me. 13 episodes of uber-geekdom at my control. I can choose to watch the damn series in one seating or watch it when I feel like it; this is more satisfying. Sure, it’s not going to be the water cooler talk with your co-workers the next day but that’s okay because of you now have the online communities that’s 24-7. Even better, there will be less spoiler accidents on social media; in my opinion. Sure the first release of Daredevil reviews were out in force but so far, I have not met the same problems like when I miss watching a Walking Dead episode. (Which I have not seen the 2nd half yet so don’t tell me a damn thing!!!)


Vodpod videos no longer available.

Hulu – Misfits: One – Watch the full episode now., posted with vodpod

Tired of the summer blahs even though summer begins tomorrow? I don’t know about you but I am in need of something big to rev my scifi appetite and having to wait for the next half season of Doctor Who was not making this fan happy. As I was reading the numerous blogs for my google reader, I came across this bit about Misfits. This show is not on cable or regular channel. Syfy or whatever the channel had better not monkey up with an US version like what they did to Being Human. No, this show in on Hulu. This online video content provider has always been a favorite destination to visit and now that I dumped cable several months ago, I am truly rewarded with a scifi series that has the right elements to make this a HUGE hit in my book.

When describing this series, I would have to do this kind of mashup – think The Breakfast Club meets Teen Titans meets X-Men. This is a must watch series and can rival my once beloved Heroes Season 1. (Still saddens me that the series never continued after that; I wonder why?) I really don’t want to get into further details because I don’t want to give anything else away. All I can say, if you follow this blog and recently noticed the lack of postings, this show has re-energized my passion for all things scifi. I hope you will agree with me.

Okay, ’nuff chat. What the show posted on the blog and tell me what you think. FYI – NSFW due to language and adult themes but then again, why would you be watching this at work?
