1:10: So this opening video montage is talking about lawlessness… but technically, there are rules. There’s still some method to the madness. Not exactly lawless now, is it? Not the best video montage, either, thanks to this silly logic.
3:58: We’re opening tonight’s show with Jericho vs. Fandango. Better to get it out of the way now, I suppose, but jerking the curtain imposes an obligation on these two to deliver in some form or fashion.
5:38: Summer Rae is almost like Kelly Kelly 2.0, but slightly better in the ring from what I’ve seen so far. That said I do like (looking at) Fandango’s original brunette partner better. Summer Rae’s face does not cut it for me.
6:39: And here’s 2013’s Entrance Theme of the Year!
8:16: I don’t care what you say or what you think of this guy, but that giant Taker-style Fandango symbol hanging above the ring is fucking boss. It’s perfect for a smug show-off douche like ‘Dango, and it makes you wonder why Dolph Ziggler doesn’t have one of those with the outline of his carbonara hair.

I've always veered away from posting news on GeekOut. We're clear in our stance that GeekOut is a place for opinions, and not news. While we do share a news bit here and there, GeekOut has always been and will forever be an outlet for geeks like myself to... well, geek out. And that's exactly what I've been doing for the past couple hours while watching these two trailers - Batman: Arkham Origins and the new PlayStation 4.
I played the ever-lovin' daylights out of Batman: Arkham City. I loved every single second of it. Without a doubt, Arkham City and Arkham Asylum are the best video games based off comic book characters. What can possibly top that, right? Well, Batman: Arkham Origins will give it a good try. So far, I'm liking what I'm seeing.

I've had a little problem with Doctor Who's Series 7. Specifically Moffat's strict "no-two parter, no story arc" rule. Unlike Series 5 and 6, Series 7 feels a bit... unfocused. I come in watching and I end up wondering where the magic went.
There's no "what the hell are the cracks in the universe" or "how will the Doctor escape his death" central mystery. Sure, there's Clara, the impossible girl, who dies and shows up in another place and time with no memories of the Doctor and her adventures with him, or the central mystery of the Doctor's name, but these story arcs are not as explicitly stated as the previous series' mysteries.
Basically, there was no build up to "The Name of the Doctor" at all. And this worried me as I had no idea how the show will address Trenzalore, the Doctor's identity, the Clara problem, and the Great Intelligence in 45 minutes.
And then I watch it, and once again I realize I shouldn't be doubting Steven Moffat.
Spoilers from this point onwards!

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not exactly a Trekkie. I saw a lot of the original series reruns on Star World a few years ago, I'm familiar with the mythology and I know the characters and their quirks, but all I really have is a working knowledge of Star Trek. A friend of mine once said that my lack of sci-fi in my geek diet was disgraceful. He also noted that my playing of The Sims 3 made me a fake geek. With that said, take what I'm about to say here with a grain of salt. I may not be the best judge of sci-fi flicks, but I absolutely enjoyed Star Trek Into Darkness. As a movie, it satisfied me, and it played well to my limited knowledge of the franchise, enough to keep me smiling throughout the whole thing.
Let's talk about what I didn't like about it first to get that out of the way.
Star Trek Into Darkness went on a teeny tiny bit longer than it should have. Not by much, and the time wasn't taken up by some useless filler, but it just felt a little long for me. It even had a couple "oh wasn't that the ending already?" scenes at the end. It also had a few inconsistencies with the plot - nothing too jarring but there were times when I just had to accept them as miracle exceptions to justify it to myself. Otherwise, bits of it would've been way too ridiculous.
Some scenes felt unnecessary, but they were few and far in between. One such scene, which was almost cringe-worthy, was Spock and Uhura's love thing. I don't wanna spoil too much, but you'll see what I'm talking about when you catch the movie. Oh, and this:
