And now for Daryll B's blog blast......

We'll call this blog "Daryll B, the Fall TV edition"....

Inspired casting on last night's Chuck. No not Linda Hamilton as his mother, but Robert Englund as the Scarecrow like scientist with a fear toxin. 6 days before Halloween and Chuck already gave me something better than candy.

Thank You Newsarama and iFanboy for this news: Jane Badler is going to be in this season's V. YESYESYESYESYES...*ahem* I mean inspired casting for us oldtime fans....


...and look in their video "tv" section for their interview with immortal "Diana" along with Laura Vandervoort and Morena Baccarin

Walking Dead is going to be big folks. I have people who usually frown at my comics addiction coming up to me asking about the show because of the buzz. Halloween Night 10pm EST...

Stargate Universe and Sanctuary both started this season running with the tension up high while Caprica was blah to tell the truth... (although I really liked the "cyber-life" daughter confrontation...) But according to Spinoff Online, SyFy is greenlighting ANOTHER BSG prequel. Talk about killing the property with information overload!


I know South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker stole lines from collegehumor.com for their Inception parody "Insheeption", but it was still funny and on point... and I loved Inception.


Finally, the five reasons I am totally loving Avengers on Disney XD so far....

1) The Past is Prologue: Did you see those mini episodes? Connections to no less than 8 important Marvel Storylines set up AND that was before episode 1!

2) We are all family: In addition connection were made not only to Avengers history but to the recently departed Black Panther and Wolverine & the X-Men cartoons... Also with tangents to the Spider-Man and Fantastic Four Universes....

3) No G.I. Joe/Transformers lasers: There were actual off screen (and two on screen) deaths. Bloodless of course but it reminds you characters are playing for keeps.

4) Hank Pym is likable.... come on...outside of Mighty Avengers, how many books in the last 5 years have done this? The cartoon does it in 2 episodes!!!

5) Hulk cracks jokes AND uses his brain when fighting: Dudes! Who needs Spidey on the Avengers when you have that?

Link Dump Time!!!!

Once again AfroNerd Readers, you are going to have to read this one yourselves. I speak on this, I'll be banned somewhere...


But on a lighter note AND in time for Halloween, check out this analysis from Chris Sims at Comics Alliance about the Tomb of Dracula Cartoon...


Here is an old article by Rich Johnson about Mark Waid's comments about High Rollers. What is significant about this are the different reactions from retailers. This indicates there isn't just one cause to the problem.... (which I am not going to let you in on so you'll have to READ the article. See? I can be sneaky too!)


OKIES, that it for me this week folks.... Until next time, Keep Fantasizing!!!!
