You Should Watch Spectreman at Least Once in Your Lifetime and Here's Why
In a recent nerdy conversation with my friend Shane, he suggested I watch a 1970s Japanese television show called Spectreman. Watching his face light up as he explained how much he loved the main character and the joy it brought to him convinced me I should give Spectreman a watch. He had me so interested, I told him that I would write an article about the show. So, after work, I went home, made a simple Google search, found the English dubbed episodes on a Youtube playlist, and sat down at my computer to watch the first episode.
Avatar Studios: Details, Daydreams, and...Another Stream Subscription?
Yip yip! More Appa? More Uncle Iroh? More Kyoshi, please and thank you! ViacomCBS announced the creation of Nickelodeon Avatar Studios! I have been an avid fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender since I watched it with my younger brother when we were kids.

It has become not only a shared interest but also a bonding experience. Her love of water-bending, however, has our bathroom a straight-up mess. The flooded tile is the only thing I would change about the new enthusiasm for Avatar inside my house, though. We have watched all of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra several times.

How WandaVision And Marvel Sparked The Growth Of My Wife's Nerd Flower
Buddha once said, "If we could see the miracle of a single episode of WandaVision, clearly our whole life would change." Ok, I admit, Buddha was talking about flowers, not a TV show. But maybe if he had watched WandaVision or any other Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, he would have had them in mind.
