Back to Back Geek Actually - s01e7 & 8 Review


Maybe you missed my obsession coverage of ReMade, a YA weekly serial that I gushed over for 15 weeks in the fall/winter. NOT A PROBLEM because we are back today with another amazing serial - Geek Actually!

I missed covering last week's ep (but was covering Cathy Yardley's new book!) so I'm here today with a double dose of geek and rage (RAWR).

After last week's episode, I had a few thoughts:
  • Ted is a dick. I really do not like Ted.
  • I'm glad I'm not the only one whose standard coping response is to watch Supernatural. It seriously cures EVERYTHING 
  • Glad Aditi found an outlet. This is going to be an uphill battle but I'm here for it. 
  • Ruby is full of wisdom and we've only seen the beginning of it. 
Now, after listening to this week's ep AND attending SDCC:
  • I'm so angry at Michelle's female boss for putting her in that position and at the same time I wasn't surprised. We've seen these male authors time and time again, including recently. 
  • Christina is a bomb waiting to go off. Why do I have a feeling an intervention is coming?
  • Taneesha GET A LAWYER. Or a new job or both. Because these jerks don't know what they're doing and you deserve better. 
  • I would love to switch places with Elli and just go to cons. And watch Supernatural. Did someone say hot cocoa?
Come back weekly for mini reviews! As always, the first episode is free on audio and ebook - so you can try it out!

This is the 7th episode in the first season of Geek, Actually, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Rachel Stuhler. 

With Michelle pressuring her to write a blog post on one side, and worries about Taneesha pressing in from the other, Aditi channels both stressors into a searing, powerful blog post about safe spaces. The post soon goes viral, calling attention both to Aditi herself and the issues she wrote about. Elli has her own brush with the darker corners of the Internet as she helps Ruby manage her affairs. 

Join this tight-knit group of lady geeks as they navigate the ups and downs of their personal and professional lives. Michelle is a hard-nosed fantasy and sci-fi editor used to things going her way. Taneesha is a talented video game programmer used to being the odd (wo)man out. Aditi is a fantasy writer on the verge of her big break. Christina is a rebel on the sidelines of Hollywood. And Elli is a fan—of anything and everything that keeps her from “proper adulting.” They might live far apart, but through the power of the internet and a shared love of all things geek, they are ready to face the world together.
