Ascension Episode One

Ascension1

Ok, I saw the first episode of Ascension.  Not many pilot shows hold my interest and even this one cause me to want to disregard.  The beginning felt a little slow and maybe I was expecting more sixties attitudes.  They did have the technology down.  But just in the 15-20 min. mark is when the show really picked up.  Now I will say this I was not born in the sixties, but I my thought about the attitudes of the era and what was portrayed seems disjointed.  I mean the there was no outside influences to change people’s perceptions of race, gender, or creed biases.  Although I guess the upper and lower deck references are the substitute of the social aspect.  But it is only the first episode and the twist at the end was very surprising.  So as of right now I will be watching the other episodes of the mini-series these coming weeks.

More of my thoughts on Ascension in an extra Solo Act this month.  It is good to see SyFy going back to producing sci-fi programs.

Upcoming Shows and Arrow

Xam'd

We have been working on some new shows, one of which is another Round Table.  In the upcoming Round Table it’s Mykey Fresh with friends Jamal and Frank, as they talk about The Flash.  In that discussion Arrow came up of course.  So there will also be a show covering along with a post on this site.  The Solo Act of this month belongs to BigL and it will arrive later this month.  So keep a lookout for these shows coming down the pipe.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3

microsoft_surface_pro_3

So, I have just received the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 from UPS today and as of right now I’m a bit overwhelmed. It has exceed my expectations. The functionality it is very impressive, as a tablet it is on par with any high end device on the market. When it comes to a laptop, I think it depends on what you need. Personally it will be my secondary laptop.  Although as a primary laptop you could get away with it, if you don’t demand a lot. I do think it matches up nicely against the MacBook Air. But this my first impression and I like it.  If you would like a little bit more check our podcast by the same name, click the link below.  There will be a review on this device later

Wakfu on Netflix

wakfu1

As of now Wakfu is available on Netflix, I have started watching the show.  So far it is ok, If you don’t know what Wakfu is, it’s a MMORPG.  At first I wasn’t aware of even the term (Wakfu) until last year’s comic-con, when a cosplayer choose one of the characters.  It piqued my interest to find out more, I found out it was a MMORPG.  I didn’t play the game, at that time (and still to some extant) I’m not a big MMO player.  So I happened upon Wakfu on Netflix, and I thought of that cosplayer.  You can check it out here

The anime originally came out Oct 2008 and ended Mar 2012, it has two seasons.  However Netflix only has the first season, it does have an english dub which was Kickstarted back in Jan 2014.  We will have a review of this anime later; but if you want more info check out. http://www.wakfu.com
