2016… The Year That Failed

To be honest I don’t remember how I started 2016 but the months to come saw some major deaths in entertainment with the likes of David Bowie, Gene Wilder, Anton Yelchin, and Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. Those are just some of the names that 2016 took from us. In the wrestling business Chyna, Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten lost their life’s this year.

With the bad you also have the good… 2016 brought us some good movies like Rogue One, Captain America: Civil War, and Suicide Squad. But on the small screen Tv shows like The Flash was fantastic! and The Walking Dead introduced us to Negan, and now everyone can see how good an actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan is.

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla put on one hell of a three night event with BOLA. AJ Styles made his WWE debut at the Royal Rumble and in September saw Styles defeat Dean Ambrose to win the WWE Championship.

Side Note: CM Punk lost his first fight in the UFC. He’s a bit overrated when it comes to his stuff outside WWE or wrestling in general. And Lesnar-Goldberg had a shit match.

What’s to come in 2017? To be honest, I don’t see Ring of Honor lasting much longer. With their agent talents going to the WWE performance center to be trainers and people like Michael Elgin leaving ROH in a work-shoot gimmick then deciding to leave ROH all together in December.

On the WWE side of things… I’m loving the women’s division in NXT and I see it growing in 2017. I hope to see Samoa Joe, Johnny Gargano, and Nakamura make it to the main roster.

In Tv and movie, I have high expectations for Power Rangers but after seeing the promo figure for Goldar, I just don’t know now. Logan looks like it’s going to be good. I like the X-Men-Wolverine-First Class films. Hopefully we will see more or the rumored Tv series will be good.

And lastly, on a personal note. 2016 for myself has been good. Went to an awesome Halloween party at Ship’s Wheel. I learned how to two-step and haven’t looked back since. Thanks to Ashley, Reigh, Taylor and the one person that started it all Stacy. I can go to any honky tonk and have a ball… I also lived through the fall of Drunken Zombie, a podcast and blog site… somewhat all about horror. But it wasn’t long until I was writing again, right here at Geek-Nerdery! (Cheap Pop). But for a complete rundown of my year, just visit Doiner.com. and there you have it! 2016 is about to be over. Hopefully no more deaths! Massive!

first bridge crew member from Star Trek Discovery finely announced

many recognise her as Sasha Williams on The Walking Dead, Sonequa Martin-Green will be taking on a pivotal role on the crew of the starship Discovery. Playing Lieutenant Commander Rainsford who serves as “number one”, a position first established by Majol Berett in the TOS pilot “the menagerie”  and later as Captain Picard’s pet name for Commander Riker.

according to ex-showrunner Bryan Fuller, Rainsford will be the focus of Star trek Discovery. Describing her as a “lieutenant commander with caveats” he went on to tell Entertainment Weekly:

 We’ve seen six series from the captain’s point of view… To see a character from a [new] perspective on the starship — one who has different dynamic relationships with a captain, with subordinates, it gave us richer context.

At first it may seem a bit disconcerting to have a star trek that won’t focus on the captain, however, keep in mind that previous star trek incarnations have ultimately been ensamble shows so this could be an opportunity for a  unique perspective.

There has never been a star trek series without klingons. this will be no different as three Klingons have also been announced!

the status of forehead makeup is at this time unknown

From the highly anticipated “American Gods” adaptation Chris Obi will portray T’Kuvma and Shazad Latif (Dr Jekyll on Penny Dreadful) will play his protege Commander Kol, the two are apparently trying to unite the Klingon houses (to find out how successful they will be check out he TNG episodes “Sins of the Father” and “Reunion”).  Joining them is shakespearean actress Mary Chieffo as Battle Deck Commander L’Rell, at an imposing 6 ft Chieffo will no doubt channel a bit of Klingon antagonists Lursa and B’Etor into her performance.
