By the Way...
I'm bringing reviews back to the Geek Bits since I never have time to do them on Saturday morning with the two kids. :) By the way, hundreds are playing Geek Madness. Are you?

9. ‘Star Trek’ Klingon Warnog beer invites fans to drink like warriors (Hero Complex)
CBS Consumer Products and the Federation of Beer announced the first official “Star Trek” beer in Las Vegas on Monday, and it’s the kind of drink designed to make fans snarl and growl as only a Klingon could. Klingon Warnog will be brewed by the Evansville, Ind.-based Tin Man Brewing Co. According to the announcement, the dunkelweizen style beer has an aroma that is “predominantly mild banana and clove” that is “supported by subtle sweet malt character from the use of Munich malt.”"Warnog was a traditional Klingon ale, clear in color. The clone of Emperor Kahless was exposed because he could not detect the difference between real and replicated warnog. (TNG: "Rightful Heir") General Martok often enjoyed warnog aboard the IKS Rotarran to keep him warm. (DS9: "Sons and Daughters")" http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Warnog
8. 11 one-season sci-fi TV wonders you can watch right now on Netflix (via Blastr)
While we wait to see if freshmen series like Almost Human survive for a second year, we thought it’d be a good time to take a look back at some of our favorite one-season sci-fi wonders.

4. ‘Terminator 5′: Arnold Scwarzenegger Details Terminator Aging, Hints at Various Incarnations (via /Film)
Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about his upcoming role in Terminator: Genesis:
"The director wants me to be exactly the same as I was in 1984. Because the person — I have human flesh, underneath is a metal skeleton — but the human flesh ages just like everyone else does. The skeleton doesn’t change. So it has to be the same body, physically the same thing, even though you may have show a little grey and all those things… So it’s very important that now I step it up with the workout. I [need to] gain an extra 5-7 pounds of pure muscle and get that body back that I had then so we can switch from Terminator to the character I play now, kind of a Terminator-protector character, so we can switch back and forth to a 25-year old versus a 35-year old versus a 55-year old, when it’s in the future of 2029. So all of this and then play around with it, the body will stay the same but the makeup will change and the hair will change."
3. Is a Dark Crystal Sequel Coming? (via /Film)
The long-gestating Dark Crystal sequel is still coming along, as revealed by Brian Henson in a recent interview. “We have one written. It’s really good,” he said. However, you shouldn’t necessarily expect it to come together quickly. “We don’t have a production schedule or anything. It’s a big movie to put all the pieces together.”

1. Transformers Age of Extinction "the biggest movie of 2014" (via /Film)
Mark Wahlberg is really excited about Transformers: Age of Extinction. So excited, in fact, that he’s prone to getting hyperbolic. Calling Transformers “probably the most iconic franchise in movie history,” he predicted that the upcoming installment would be “the biggest movie of 2014.”
“For moviegoers all over the world, I guarantee this will take it up a notch,” he said. “It is bigger and better than the other three (films) combined.” In Wahlberg’s defense, he has reason to be optimistic. The last Transformers grossed $1.1 billion worldwide to become the second-highest grossing film of 2011. [Yahoo]
Arrow (02x17) "Birds of Prey" (Not Recommended)
I love Arrow, but it's hit and miss. This one is a miss. Laurel's addiction storyline is getting ridiculous. She's a drunk for three months, hits bottom and then is brought back in the most inane way possible. At one point she tearfully talks about how she's recovered from addiction, but it's like that episode of Cosby Show when Theo has dyslexia for an episode and then they never talk about it again. The character is all over the place. On the other hand, Canary (not Black Canary) is awesome and is the best female superhero on TV. The island flashbacks are getting boring again and have no connection to the episode. Diggle fetches Arrow's clothes like a butler. Sigh.
