The Witcher in 2020

I’m planning to read The Witcher series of books in 2020. I have 4 episodes of the TV series The Witcher completed ( I like to watch them with my nephew ), though the show, and I’m sure the books, are not for the young. My nephew is an adult and I am ancient. That being said, I may try the game and some comic books.

I’ll be reading Last Wish, Sword of Destiny, Blood of Elves, Time of Contempt, Baptism of Fire, Tower of the Swallow, Lady of the Lake and Season of Storms .

If anyone has a reading order for The Witcher please let me know ….

In Search Of.. **Other Voices**

A Gnostalgia reader mentioned this series in a comment today and I was thrilled to see that people still remembered this old show. It was one of my favorites back in the day.

While I may disagree with the conclusions in the episodes, I have to admit that it was shows like this that made me think of things that were bigger than myself.

Do plants communicate? I think so.

PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN #1

I have to admit that I am a little surprised by this news. I really thought that people were getting tired of the paranormal shows on TV but PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN (link) was the number #1 series premiere ever in Destination America’s history in several key demos Ratings. These ratings are for March 4th and I have not seen the ratings for the March 11th show.

So what does this mean? I would say that things are looking good for Nick Groff. Maybe Destination America is on to something.

Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever

Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever

As many of you know, I love scifi and as a child Star Trek was my gateway drug into the marvelous world of scifi. One of my favorite Authors is the loveable curmudgeon Harlan Ellison. Knowing that, it should come as no surprise that the story “City on the Edge of Forever” was a big hit with me. What some Trek fans may not know is that Ellison’s story was altered ( due to the drug angle of the story ) when developed into the Trek episode of the same name. This graphic novel provides us with a more Ellison-version of the well-known episode.

The artwork is fantastic. Ellison’s story is actually better than the original TV episode. Having said that, I missed the stone circle and the drugs looked like something from the game Bejeweled. I give it 5 stars out of 5 and recommend it for the Trek, scifi, and Ellison fans.

Expedition Unknown S01E06 Viking Sunstone

There was a time when I was very critical of Josh Gates and his methods. I really didn’t “get” his humor and I thought that it may not be taken in the best way by the various cultures. As time rolled by, I gave his show “Destination Truth” a chance and learned to love it. Gates has a new show, “Expedition Unknown’, which is very much like “Destination Truth”. In this episode, “Viking Sunstone”, Gates explores the myth of the Viking sunstone. Having some “Norman/North-man” lineage, I enjoyed every minute of it. I would love to have been on this adventure, though I may have passed on the herring.

Expedition Unknown S01E01 Amelia Earhart

The show is vintage Josh Gates. If you liked Destination Truth, you should like Expedition Unknown.

Expedition Unknown chronicles the adventures of Josh Gates as he investigates iconic mysteries across the globe. Gates begins by interviewing key eyewitnesses and uncovering recent developments in the story, then springboards into a fully immersive exploration.
