The Only Reality Series I’ve Ever Liked Beginning To End
Just finished season one of ABC’s reality show The Quest! I can hardly believe I fell in love with a reality show.
What’s it about? Twelve contestants (Paladins) are transported from our world to a fantasy queendom called Everrealm. Everrealm is currently in dire need of a hero prophesized by The Fates that will save them from the evil Verlox. The Fates, pictured above, and Sir Ansgar, the swoon-worthy head of the queen’s army (2nd picture), are the ones who assign challenges for the Paladins to eventually end up with the One True Hero.
If you love fantasy epics, role-playing games, or just a fun ‘evil vs good’ story, you should definitely look up The Quest. Lots of diversity, good actors, cool contestants (for the most part- out of 12 I didn’t like two), lovely costumes and settings, awesome special effects makeup. VERY little or none of the back stabbing, haters, love triangles… all the things that keep me far, far away from reality shows. This is the type of show you actually want to be a part of.
I recommend not googling or searching anything on Tumblr because since the season is over, there are spoilers everywhere. Even some of the frozen frames that identify each episode are spoilery so you have to squint, haha. Definitely do not look up the show on the ABC website. The first thing you see is the worst possible spoiler, plus they no longer have the first episodes posted.
for those of you who have not yet seen the middleman - and there’s more of you than not - i wish i could tell you that it’s as easy as your nearest netflix streaming set-top box. sadly, it is very difficult to get single-season shows on streaming services without the kind of zeal usually reserved for the likes of mal reynolds… but all is not lost - here are three places you can find the adventures of the big green cheese and dubbie…
Okay, so I’m not sure why but for some reason there are a ton, a TON, of Princess Batman costumes, possibly more than the standard Batgirl costume. They come in 2 different flavors, bumblebee and hot pink. So, I’m just making one big Super Princess Batman compilation post (alternatively Ballerina Batman since those fluffy skirts can be ambiguous).
Don’t ask which Robin that is because I cannot keep track of all the dang Robins at this point… “Stephanie Carrie Graydrake-Waynetodd”
Two Puerto Rican teams were declared winners in the high school and college divisions today in the 20th NASA Great Moonbuggy Race at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
Team 1 from Teodoro Aguilar Mora Vocational High School of Yabucoa won first place in the high school division; the University of Puerto Rico at Humacao claimed the college-division trophy.
The winning teams outraced more than 89 teams from 23 states, as well as Puerto Rico, Canada, India, Germany, Mexico and Russia. About 600 student drivers, engineers and mechanics - plus their team advisors and cheering sections - attended the annual “space race” held Friday and today.
Organized by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, the race challenges students to design, build and race lightweight, human-powered buggies. The half-mile course simulates the cratered lunar surface so that race teams face many of the same engineering challenges dealt with by Apollo-era lunar rover developers at the Marshall Center in the late 1960s. The winning teams post the fastest vehicle assembly and race times in their divisions, with the fewest on-course penalties.
I would like to point out that a Puerto Rican team also won the Spirit Award “for overall team energy, enthusiasm and camaraderie” (because we are happy nerds).
After the long Easter Weekend, it was back to the grind today! Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and working with educators is a delight. However after the awesome weekend of gaming, specifically during the Geeknic XI on Table Top Day, I still wanted to be gaming.
If you’ve heard about Puerto Rico Role Players for the first time here let me share a couple of links:
Proving I spend far too much time online! I live and play in Puerto Rico. I mostly tumblr things related to pop culture, particularly science fiction and fantasy (but really a bit of everything). Welcome!
