Geeking Out About: November

Nov 7, 2016

I recently took down all of my old 'Geeking Out About' posts and have been bummed about it ever since. It's one of my favorite segments, but I had to figure out a way to geek out without copyright infringement, so they had to go. This new format is inspired by Emma's 'Anticipating' and Victoria's 'Monthly Look Ahead' segments. Thanks ladies!

The Crown - Netflix is totally killing it with their Netflix Originals these days, huh? The Crown came out on November 4th and I've only gotten through a few episodes, but I'm loving it so far. It's about Queen Elizabeth II's life, starting from her marriage to Prince Philip and following her rise to power. Historical dramas don't usually do it for me, but each episode is so gorgeous and emotional that I can't get enough!

Westworld - Oh my gosh, have you seen Westworld yet?! It's mind-blowingly awesome, and last night's episode was no exception. In a nutshell, it's about a futuristic Old West-style amusement park with robotic hosts. I don't want to give away any spoilers so that's all I'll say for now, but you really need to check it out.

ARQ - I've only watched one movie over the past month since there are so many fantastic shows to binge on, but ARQ called to me. I didn't have high expectations for it but it actually blew me away! I can't even attempt to explain this one, but if you like time-travel and suspense, you'll love this movie.

Humans - I guess I'm on a robot kick lately, since this is the second show on my list that features them. Humans premiered last year and won't be coming back until February 2017, so now is a perfect time to watch. It's a sci-fi drama where people own synthetic humans, or Synths, to do their busy work. Things get crazy, and that's all I can say without spoiling anything!

Black Mirror - Because duh. I'm so bummed that I've already gotten through all six of the new episodes! Black Mirror is always incredible. None of the episodes in season three really floored me like the first two seasons did, but I still had so much fun watching them. If you haven't checked it out yet, you definitely should.

Vikings - The first half of season four aired earlier this year, and I've been waiting for the second half ever since! If you haven't watched it yet, Vikings is about Ragnar Lothbrok's rise from farmer to King...with some other crazy stuff happening along the way. It sucked my husband and I in immediately when we started watching it last year, so I highly recommend. New episodes are set to air November 30th.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - It's almost time, you guys. Fantastic Beasts will be released worldwide on November 18th! I probably won't go to the theaters to see it until a couple weeks after its released (I just hate movie theaters so much), but I know it's going to be amazing.

Overwatch's Sombra - After the Overwatch fanbase has been waiting for what feels like forever, the new character Sombra is finally being released. If you haven't seen the video from BlizzCon yet, check it out here. She looks like a badass and I'm definitely loving all the purple.

<3 as="" available="" br="" of="" on="" play="" ptr="" s="" she="" the="" to="" today="">Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life - November 25th can't get here soon enough, right? I'm pretty sure that most of us having been waiting for this revival, since the show ended in 2007. I can't wait to find out what life has been like for Lorelai and Rory these past nine years!

Gemina: The Illuminae Files 2 - Gemina was released last month, so I'm really falling behind on my reading list here. I have it on audiobook, but I know that won't be nearly as awesome an experience as reading the hardback version and falling in love with all of the graphics. I'm hoping to pick it up this month and to leave a review for you all!

Over to you!
