Anomaly: Sci-Fi / Fantasy Geek Chats
Fun, conversational episodes since 2007 on Sci-fi / Fantasy and geek culture. We cover: fan conventions, sci fi fantasy TV, book, movies and more. In addition to the 50 episodes available here, you'll find many, many more at anomalypodcast.com.

Are you overwhelmed with the shear amount of choices when browsing Netflix? Do you often get so confused that after 30 minutes of looking you just watch Parks and Rec or Star Trek TNG for the 25 time? Is it time for you to broaden your horizons and find something new on Netflix Originals? Great! You are in the right place.

No, we have not been able to watch every show, but we do have some ideas you might like. In this episode we cover the shows that caught our eyes, and give our honest opinion. As you know Jen and Angela usually cover genre entertainment, but we also discuss muggle shows in this podcast. 

What are your favorite Netflix Originals? Let us know!

Do Picard and Crusher ever find happiness together? If you’re like me, you’ve been asking this question for decades. Fret no longer, shipper! There are books that develop the romance between them! We’ll explore them all in this new Anomaly series all about the Picard/Crusher relationship. I kick off the series with a review of the Star Trek The Next Generation novel: Death In Winter by Michael Jan Friedman. 

Find a link to the novel, the Tumblr blog, The Star Wars Stacks, and the Sub Rosa review, mentioned by Jen, in the show notes for this episode (listed below). 

If you have insights, feedback or suggestions to share, please email me at girlygeekz@gmail.com.

I hope you’re enjoying our Wizard World Austin booth chats (DAY ONE and DAY TWO). If you haven’t already listened to Day ONE and TWO, be sure to check those out first. You don’t want to miss them, lots of fun things happened.

As I mentioned before, we recorded reports each day at our booth, along with a few mini skirt topics like “what real life super powers do you have?”, and a Star Trek Discovery Fall Finale discussion. All three of the reports are available now in our feed. This is the last of the live reports.  The Star Trek Discovery Chat will be uploaded tomorrow and a Felicia Day’s panel will be added next week.

We also have a recap video coming in the next week or two that will feature photos and video of all the experiences we talked about in this report, as well as commentary from me and Angela describing everything that took place. Subscribe to our YouTube channel or to our website so you know when it’s ready to watch.
