First of all, I wanna ask that you all keep Boston in our thoughts after the horrific events today...
We are all obviously tore up over the Walking Dead season ending (October can't come fast enough). Thankfully Doctor Who and Game of Thrones is back with new seasons, and off to a Hell of a start, and fun shows like Warehouse 13 are coming back.
Tonight, we might have been introduced to the next big thing in SyFy's new series, Defiance...
I won't share any of the plot in case you haven't seen it yet, but....
Wow...I really enjoyed Defiance! A great mix of humor, drama, action, and fine ladies (human and alien). It was very visually appealing too. Definitely looks like they put a little money and effort into this show, unlike the movies and other stuff they put out. It's also helps that they had Face Off on the air a few seasons before, so we got to see the work that goes in to creating the characters. Let's hope the writing holds up its end of things. I know its only the pilot, but I think SyFy might have nailed it with this one!
The pilot was written really well due to the fact that the writers not only introduce you to the main characters, but sell them to the point that we can make actual emotion based opinions on the characters.

There have been a few other new shows I'm keeping my eyes on too. NBC's Hannibal , History's Vikings, and Bates Motel. Give em a shot and get back at me with your opinions!
Oh...and I went and checked out the new Evil Dead movie! Hands down, one of the best horror films in a while. I'm usually not a fan of remakes, especially of classics, but this film was its own movie. It had all the gore and laughs of the original. The only thing i feel it was missing was bones, in the amputation scenes, and a big group of squeamish friends to laugh at when things got too gory!
Well, its time to kick back and watch Castle, so I will leave you with a few thoughts...
Convention..I wanna make tis convention idea a reality, so give me suggestions. I'm not trying to make money. I just want there to be something to look forward to for people with similar interest here.
Header for this page..I'm working on ideas for a page header/logo. Give me ideas what would look awesome and attention grabbing on the page, and flyers and the such. You all know what kind of stuff I'm into by now.
I'm also working on some new Q&A's for the page with some cool guests. Can't say who, but some may have appeared on my favorite tv show, and another is a film producer that you might not know yet, but should and will.
That's it for me...join the Comic Book Swap Meet Facebook group and follow me on Twitter: @thestevestrout
Much love, geeks!
