Arthur to Young Sherlock Holmes – 2011’s miscellaneous GeekDad stuff

In addition to the reviews and interviews I did for GeekDad this year, I also wrote a half-dozen posts about things like discovering the TV show Eureka, spooky Ray Bradbury stories, and attending the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 with my daughter. I loved writing these.

Eureka – I Have (Finally) Found It!

Young Sherlock Holmes Revisited

Pick A Doctor, Any Doctor, on Netflix

Harry Potter and the Nostalgic GeekDad (Probably my favorite GeekDad contribution this year.)

Ten Tales by Ray Bradbury to Get You in the Halloween Spirit

The 15 Geekiest Episodes of PBS’s Arthur

The Fellowship of the Ring and a Decade of Family Geekdom

GeekDad also featured my Delving Into Dungeons & Dragons As A Family post – originally from summer 2010 – as a “wayback machine” post this July. Since this is one of my other favorites, I was glad to see it up there again.

Neil Gaiman, Arthur, and Geekdom

Ā©2010 WGBH / Cookie Jar Entertainment Inc.

Sept. 2010 – Further update: This entry has seen a bump in traffic since I posted the first images of Neil Gaiman’s cartoon appearance on PBS’ Arthur over at WIRED’s GeekDad blog. For more art and details from the episode – which premieres the week of October 25, 2010 – you should go read the whole article.

Edit 2/5/10 – I wrote something. Neil Gaiman said he loved it. That’s kind of crazyawesome.

Kelsey and I have been fans of PBS’ Arthur pretty much since she was old enough to focus her eyes on the television. We quote lines from the show just the way we do with Star Wars or Fringe or Help!

It’s hard to say which of us is more excited that Neil Gaiman‘s going to be on the show, but the news inspired me to write this post for GeekDad.
