Friday Jambalaya: Star Wars Meets North By Northwest & Doctor Who Meets Shakespeare

Along with book recommendations, some Star Trek and a bit of Hamilton!

Another week down! Cole and Clarice started us off on Monday by attempting to make some sense of High Rise. Then, Tuesday, Cole continued his book recommendation series Training Your Baby Nerd. On Wednesday, Hanna gave us the next installment of Idols of Star Wars and then we finished off the week by reviewing the season three finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


  1. The Nebula Awards were announced this past week and women ruled the night!
  2. Some sad news: The Toast is closing.
  3. The potential cast of Black Panther is just getting better and better!
  4. It’s a goatman!
  5. A very, VERY simple teaser trailer for the new Star Trek show was released.
  6. We are unashamed Hamilton nerds so here’s a great interview with Lin-Manuel Miranda!
  7. Doctor Who meets Shakespeare! Russell T Davies is adapting A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the screen & David Tennant performs Puck!
  8. We’re always looking for new books, especially those of a science fiction and fantasy nature, and this list gives us options that take place all around the world!
  9. A great article about peak television and the difficulty of making a great show in that environment.
  10. And finally. Darth By Darthwest. Besides saying we totally love nerds, that’s all we’re giving you!
