I wanted to get this post out at a time where more people, like me, will have seen Series 2 of Umbrella Academy and will already dying be for more! Safe to say that the members of the Umbrella Academy have all developed very drastically as characters over this second series, so I wanted to provide my new definitive ranking of the members. Here are the worst to best Umbrella Academy members according to, well, me.

A Geek’s Guide: Gatekeeping in the Geek Community
So often I’m met by people who feel they don’t belong in the geek community. People who are quirky, different and interesting but don’t feel welcomed, either online or in person. I’m here to tell you – your perceived “geekiness” is not a measure of you as a person, and your opinion is just as valid as anyone else’s despite how much gatekeeping there is. Here’s why…
A Geek’s Guide: How to Play a Bard in Dungeons and Dragons
My first ever character was a Rogue, but that just didn’t suit me. Being the stealthiest and the first to react was fun, but playing a Bard just levelled up D&D for me and turned it from something good to something great.

Geeking Out Loud: The Evolution of Sci-Fi Movies
I’ve always loved Sci-Fi but I never feel like I have seen enough! I wanted to explore as much as possible, from the first Sci-Fi Movie “Le Voyage Dans Le Lune” (1902), right through to the latest releases and sub-genres that have expanded throughout the years. Because, Sci-Fi always makes us question;

I’ve already considered what makes a good Sci-Fi story, and so I started doing a little research into the release dates of movies (and some extra reading). I realised that there is a pattern in what’s happening in society and science, and the types of movies that became popular at the time.
Where to start with Anime Part 2: Dreamlike and Whimsical

Where to start with Anime Part 1: The Dark and Dramatic
I can’t pretend that I am a connoisseur of anime, but I feel like I’ve at least watched enough (about 30 or so) different anime movies and shows to give you an insight into where to start with anime.
Anime is a style rather than a genre and so many people seem to mistake anime as a genre of movie rather than just a form. Just like other styles, it all depends on your mood as to what you can cope with or feel like watching – whether it be action, romance or something entirely different. Part 1 below is all about the dramatic or the dark anime, for those in the mood for action!
