Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, The Mandalorian, season 3, and Flowerheart.

What’s Geeky in March 2023?

Winter is finally coming to an end and Spring is just around the corner. The birds are singing, basketball is playing, and there is SO MUCH that we are excited to show you this month!

Seriously, from a return of everyone’s favorite Star Wars father figure (after a brief stint as a father figure in the apocalypse) to a sinister fishing sim (you read that right), and to a new book in the Left-handed Booksellers of London series by dark fantasy powerhouse Garth Nix, it is time to get ready for some March Madness.

And by “madness” I do mean geekiness!

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

Movies and TV

March 1st:

The Mandalorian, season 3

Grogu in The Mandalorian.

Join Din Djarin and Grogu as they journey back to Mandalore, the ancient and now ruined home of the beskar-wearing Mandalorians, on Disney+. On a mission of redemption, the Mandalorian will come across the scattered remnant of his people and will have to decide what they can make of themselves. Meanwhile, the remnant of the empire has not been sleeping, pushing the galaxy into greater danger than they realize.

Say it with me now: This is the way!

March 6th:

History of the World, Part II

A screenshot from History of the World, Part II.

From the brilliant mind behind Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, and History of the World, Part I, comes this Hulu special from Mel Brooks. Come watch the wackiest retelling of the history of Harriet Tubman, Kublai Khan, William Shakespeare, Noah, and Sigmund Freud for his master—erm, well, you get the idea.

Perry Mason, season 2

Perry Mason, season 2 coming March 2023.

Okay, okay, so this isn’t a typical tv show found on a geeky news segment, but I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS! Seriously, this HBO show follows the career of the hardboiled defense attorney with a penchant for taking on unwinnable cases on behalf of the innocent. Starring Matthew Rhys of The Americans fame (and Disney’s The Owl House) this is set to be an explosive second season!

March 9th:

School Spirits

But as she digs deeper into her own life—and death—she discovers things that she was never supposed to know.

March 10th:

Future TX

A still from Future TX, a movie coming March 2023.

March 15th:

Ted Lasso, season 3

A still from Ted Lasso, a comedy/drama.

Ok, I already broke the rules for Perry Mason, so now I have to mention Ted Lasso, too!

Everyone’s favorite American soccer coach in England is back. But the game has changed as Rebecca’s ex-husband from hell, Rupert now has his own team with a very familiar face as his new coach. Ted’s got his hands full as the media predict AFC Richmond will be at the bottom but we all know better, we “Believe.”

A still from the TV series Extrapolations.

This AppleTV anthology show with an all-star cast features several interconnected stories of people in the near future as they grapple with climate change.
