We probably spend WAY more time talking about the new cowboy romance movie The Longest Ride this week than any of us anticipated, but we offset that with talk about Bloodborne, the Mad Max and Godfather movies and feeling bad about feeling good about boobs.
Anne and Foley have watched most of Steven Universe, so we have a lengthy talk about that while trying as best we can to not spoil anyone about the show, and then Bill dishes about Fast & the Furious 7, Axiom Verge and Mario 64 before we finally fusion-gem together to yap about The Writer Will Do Something and Attack the Light.
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

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
