Here at Pop Geeks we love real science just as much as we love science fiction and all of that other geeky stuff.

He’s put a bunch of his personal belongings and memorabilia up for auction through Julien’s Auctions. Proceeds for some of the items benefit the Starlight Children’s Foundation, cause the Hoff is a mensch. There’s […]

NBC Releases First Photo of ‘Constantine’

John Constantine

Pretty cool, huh? Looks like it’s going to be about some kind of giant. Like, a really rich giant. That eats castles. Oh, they mean the guy in the trench coat. Not the emperor. Well.

However much affection you might have for Sharknado, or Sharktopus, or even¬†Piranhaconda if that’s your thing (no judging), you have to admit that most of what’s on Syfy (pronounced “siffy”) is stupid crap. A channel that once held the promise of expanding our geeky minds is now just another channel that makes us dumber with […]

Flash Flashback: How Does the New Costume Stack Up to the Old?

New Flash Suit

It stacks up pretty well. Not gonna lie. Personally, I don’t like the rubberiness of it, or the way it bunches up, and I think the colors are too dark. But I think the creators of the new Flash pilot, a spinoff from the CW’s popular Arrow series starring Grant Gustin as the Flash, have […]

Veronica Mars

Note: I tried several times to do this with a dry, objective approach, but just couldn’t do it. Screw it, here’s my love letter. Dear Veronica Mars, Oh, Veronica Mars, how I love thee. You’re Nancy Drew from a broken home, with no fucks given now or ever. Your sarcasm sparkles like broken glass. You […]

NBC Announces “Heroes: Reborn” for 2015

Yet another surprise in this still-young 2014. “Reborn” will be a 13-episode miniseries that will stand apart from the original 2006-10 “Heroes”, which depicted normal humans discovering that they have superhuman abilities.
