Anne’s away on break this week, so Daniel “Grumpyturtle” Rutis and Leland Radburn return to chat with Bill about Steven Universe, Star Wars comics, GTAV Online heists, David Lynch’s Dune and the special edition of The Abyss.
In the Geek Week News In Review: Nintendo goes mobile, Kojima goes away, the canceled Killing Joke Batgirl variant cover, Sony remaking Little Women, the death of Donatello, the rise of cord-cutting cable TV apps and how a roll of airport carpet became the Grand Marshal of Portland’s Starlight Parade.
Intro: Kill the Sexplayer – Girls Against Boys
Break: Mabe Village – DJ Cutman
Outro: Steven Universe (end credits) – Rebecca Sugar
This week: Bill fidgets about the end of Star Wars: Rebels, the old Star Trek movies and bitches about Agent Carter while Anne continues to grapple with The Order: 1886 and then dishes about The Last Man On Earth and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze before we Voltron together with Foley to gush about Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
In The Geek Week News In Review: The new Tomorrowland trailer, GDC/PAX news, our misgivings regarding all this new (and kind of unnecessary) VR tech, the death of Maxis and how crummy it is to be a game dev in general, the collapse of “The Sarkeesian Effect” and Harrison Ford’s golf course blunder.
Intro: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (theme) – dude from the trailer park & an autotuner
Break: Donkey Kong Country Jungle – DK & the DK crew
Anne’s away cavorting with eagles and seals this week, so listener Daniel “GrumpyTurtle” Rutis sits in with Bill to debate the merits of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (and a whole bunch of other Zelda stuff), with a side of Into the Woods and World of Warcraft talk. Lastly, Bill gives his own inarticulate reviews of Selma, Whiplash, Boyhood, The Princess Kaguya and The Boxtrolls.
