So with the leisurely time that is my summer vacation, I have dedicated some of that time to catching up on some shows that I’ve been meaning to watch. These shows are on on Netflix, which I recently acquired. The shows in question are Jessica Jones and Daredevil and in case you don’t know both of these are own by Marvel. Goddammit Marvel! Why do you have to make such awesome shows. I really want to give DC a chance, but they are seriously lagging behind in the content department. Anyways, if you haven’t checked these shows out yet, you really need to. I will admit that the first season of Daredevil is a little boring but the second season more than makes up for it. Either way I am happily slipping further and further into my Marvel addiction. Please say a prayer for my poor husband who has to listen to me rant and rave over fictional characters. Ha ha
As you may know, I am a life long geek and proud of it. My childhood consisted of comic books, Lord of the Rings (the cartoons), Star Wars and Star Trek. I didn’t realize I was a geek at that time, I just knew that I had some epic fandoms I was apart of. I appreciated the artwork, the story telling, and the delivery. When I entered my teen years I discovered anime (thank you Adult Swim) and fell a little further down the rabbit hole. However, as I got older, these things got pushed to the back burner. It wasn’t that I was ashamed of them, or that I didn’t like them anymore. It just that it’s hard to keep up with these things when you’re in the military. It takes over your life and it doesn’t really release you until you leave the ranks.
Now don’t get me wrong, I loved my time in the Marines and I would go back to all that in a heartbeat, but I love having more time to enjoy the things that I love. Which brings me to the point of this post. I don’t know if I’ve already mentioned this, but I’ve started to get back into comics. Mostly Marvel, but some DC. My husband doesn’t really understand but bless his heart he does tolerate me. I’m already into so many things already it’s surprising that I find time for anything else. Oh well, at least I’ll be happy as I descend further into the many fandoms out there. It’s been nice know you all! Ha ha.
