Two Years Ago Today – March 24
On March 24, 2015, we covered everything. We had tears, jeers, gaming, movies, Sci-Fi and TV.
Manny told us about the piccolo player that was saddened when her team, the Villanova Wildcats, were losing and how Jimmy Fallon cheered her up.
We learned that Nintendo was finally joining the modern age and partnering with a company to bring their games to mobile phones and tablets. They are slowly bringing them out and we finally started seeing some good Nintendo action at the end of 2016.
On the television front, we learned that Scully and Mulder were returning in the X-Files, and it was a series the fans eagerly waited for. It returned in January 2016 and fans ate it up, in fact it was such a hit that FOX is looking at possibly making another season for the 2017/2018 TV season.
We also learned that Chloe Sevigny was returning to American Horror Story, she remained for a total of 18 episodes, two seasons. Other names announced for that season included Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson and Lady Gaga.
When it came to movies, we had the release of the newest Fantastic 4 poster, which was probably the best thing about the movie. Any long time fan of the Fantastic Four had probably given up hope that the movie would meet our expectations, but there was still a faint glimmer of hope.
Boeing patented what they called a shockwave attenuation system, which resembles a force field. It was designed to prevent explosive shockwaves from harming a target. That means the shockwaves will be deflected, but a shell or grenade shrapnel could still easily pass through the field. How cool is that?
