Hello old visitors and new readers,
The old Serg Beret site has come to a close with the new site emerging in the form of TheNewSergBeret.com. The site will retain it’s roots founded in the original site focusing on pop culture from the past and present. With that said, the name change is more for trying to reboot the site from the ground up, as well as create a new place to create in my downtime in my new day job life (along with the other hosts that will be joining soon). It’s a rebuild of the new by returning of the old. With that said, let’s get onto the exciting announcements for the future that will make this site more up to date.
This series is the true sequel series to the old Film A Week. A rundown of famous film franchises, one franchise at a time the series will run in a bi-weekly schedule to give insight on the franchises we all loved, hated or surrendered our hard earned wallets to (looking at you, Star Wars). This will solely focus on the films, unless a film from the franchise was previously covered. In that case, it will be re-reviewed and given an update. Following in tradition with the original series it was based off, the series will begin with a look at the adventures of Doc and Marty in the Back to the Future franchise with the first film on June 17th.
Back to the Drawing Board has been about two years in the making. The show will be a bi-weekly series that takes a look at animated features & shows with the brother and sister duo taking their knowledge of animation to the next step: podcasting. The pilot episode will be about Treasure Planet from it’s humble beginnings behind the scenes to its failure at the box office. It will look at the history of each film and be a review of them. All animation is on the table and we are ready to embark hopefully by June 24th.
Originally hosted by Serg Beret and Matthew Reveles, the New Friendly Film Perspectives show will now have a rotating round table of friendly guests or family to discuss films never seen before and film news to make a show that will run about one hour to a hour and a half. The projected start date is June 15 to get the ball rolling, but not expected to be on that date.
In our first true video series, hosts Serg Beret & Jerry Monroy (with cameraman Guillermo Morales) tackle different foods in this bi-weekly series that consists of trying new food items, blasts from the past, some homemade recipes and even venturing to the outside to try some local & SoCal based food. It is scheduled for June 22nd (after my birthday), but can be delayed.
And for the final announcement…
This new podcast series is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Tackling close to 32 WrestleManias, as it will last into the next year, this 33 (!) episode series that will run bi-weekly focusing on the grandest stage of them all. It will focus on the build-up to each event, a rundown of the card, the main event and the aftermath. The co-host has yet to be announced, so stay tuned.
TheNewSergBeret.com will be a place for me and my friends to grow and remind ourselves that life can be a bit fun. There will also be new poems, new Personal Ramblings and new Top of the Crop lists. Be sure to check back here when TheNewSergBeret.com kicks off around June 15. Thanks for sticking around.
