Amazon’s running a Marvel digital comic sale that’s bigger than any Avengers movie today, with literally thousands of titles marked down to $5 or less. You’ll find everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to Darth Vader to Deadpool to Captain America in there, and every hero in between, so there’s never been a…
A new version of The Tick showed up as part of Amazon’s current Pilot Season. Basically the Tick is in a cage match with Kevin Bacon and Jean-Claude Van Damme to be the next Amazon series. Have you watched it and what do you think of this iteration of The Tick?
The Guardian has reported that Amazon CEO and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos has a cameo as a “Starfleet Official” in Star Trek Beyond. No word yet on whether he adheres to the Prime Directive?
I’m not a binge watcher so it took a while to finish The Man in the High Castle (Jessica Jones had priority). There hasn’t been a lot said about it here so I’m throwing out my two cents (and some extra change) about the show. Spoilers ahead including just who is the titular Man in the High Castle.
Here's an awesome 3D visualization from NASA that shows how the Sahara Desert helps fertilize the Amazon rainforest even though they're on two different continents that are separated by an entire ocean.
