What To Watch, Read & Play

During The Apocalypse

By John Andreula

Edited by Kodid Laraque-Two Elk


The current COVID-19 coronavirus catastrophe really sucks! It’s enough to make the gray hairs on our heads multiply with the quickness.

The most crucial takeaway we’ve gathered from the constant bombardment of bad news and misinformation here at 5280 Geek is that if we hunker down in our homes, lock our doors and shut off all the lights, the virus won’t be able to get us.

If you too are doing the right thing by staying away from others during this time of crisis we commend you. It sure isn’t easy.

Of course becoming a shut-in Morlock mole-person is only tolerable for so long. . .

If you read, watch, or play even a few of these you will arise from your shelter vault better prepared for whatever dystopian future awaits in the world outside.

And even though we are inching closer to how Del the Funky Homosapien envisioned the future in his legendary 2000 release Deltron 3030, at least us geeks can still be entertained.
