I need you to tell me which of these is the one thing I should watch/read/consume! Let me explain...

I have a confession to make: as a twenty-three-year-old graduate of college I am officially an aging geek.  Now I know what you're saying: "Gabe, 23 is not that old."  And while that may be true in our universe, in the world of the classic film "Logan's Run" I would be just seven-years away from state-mandated death (NOTE: THIS IS THE KIND OF REFERENCE AN OLD PERSON MAKES)!  Is it hard?  Yes, yes it is.  Harder than anything.  Not a day goes by when I don't think back on my halcyon days as an 18-year-old male, when 95% of entertainment was made just for ME. Now, as a 23-year-old male, only a pitiful 94% is. How times have changed.

As a result of all this nonsense, I sometimes miss out on the hep new entertainment that just drives the kids wild.  Sure, I can talk your ears off about Batman.  But The Hunger Games?  Not as much.  The purpose of this column is to document my exposure to new kinds of geeky content I may have missed out on by virtue of being an old fuddy duddy.  This is where you come in.

I want you, THE READERS, to vote on what I should watch and/or read in its entirety.  I will then do so, and write up my impressions.  So what do you think?  Should I dive into...:

1.  The Hunger Games Series

2.  Sherlock

3.  Doctor Who (David Tennant - Present)

4. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

My next week's worth of time is in your hands.  Please do not lead me astray, or else I'll... write a bad review of what I watch, I guess?  I have very little power.
