Riker is a bad influence on Wesley. Erica took a field trip to the worst convenience store. Kevin finds a new music love with The Smith Street Band. Erica loves the 80s anime Saint Seiya and talks books with “Sleepless” and “Mirror”.
It’s a special pre and post-Rose City Comic-con episode. We saw so many things. Thank you to Weta Workshop and Miss Miniver for great presentations. As always, Kelly Sue Deconnick kills it at the Non-Compliant panel. Then we went to Star Trek improv musical. We got some new books and schwag. Thanks for listening!
Might be one of my favorite episodes. We explore Erica’s hatred of Hugh Grant and Kevin’s horrible gag reflex. Erica’s anime segment on Gate (anime) and Arppegio of Blue Steel (Manga). An update on Descender Volume 2: Machine Moon by Jeff Lemire (Author), Dustin Nguyen (Artist). And finally, our reaction to Star Trek: Beyond. Thanks for listening!
It’s a Christmas miracle. A new show. We talk about favorite Christmas music and movies. We have a review of The Force Awakens (skip 00:48:02-01:11:07 if you don’t want to hear). Erica has another anime and manga segment talking about Fist of the North Star and Mobile Suit Gundam. Then we finish it out with a reading of A Very Klingon Khristmas. (Listen to http://geekinthecity.com/2013/12/19/issue-241/ . They do it way better)

It’s been a while and this episode is short, but don’t let that be confused with bad. Kevin introduces Erica to the Academy award winning movie (at least is should have been) Bloodsport. Her commentary on 80’s racism and love for martial arts and silk pajamas is priceless. We also talk about Shatner possibly being in Star Trek 3 (boooo) and giving comics legend Jack Kirby his due, finally.
First Show! Picard with Data remote, Sopranos, old people on Facebook, embarrassing pump-up music, first screen names, and Wes Craven vs. Wes Anderson. Sorry for some of the sound issues. We’re trying to get it together.
