Now displaying: 2019

This week two of your favourite swashbuckling geeksplorers present their very brief thoughts on Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (General Chani was unavailable for this one, doubtless off training her minions in a secret location).

We'll return with a full reaction episode in a week or so, once we've had time to watch it again and gather our thoughts.

We're baaaaaaaack!

After a long hiatus, and a slight relocation of TWBG Towers (80m to be precise) we return with a look at the role of Area 51 in popular culture and find... a lot less than we thought we would. Maybe it's a conspiracy. Maybe the government really are hushing everything up. Maybe Naruto running at a secret base is a bloody stupid idea. Who knows? Well, hopefully after listening to this you'll be a little wiser. Or is that what they want you to think...?

 

All that, plus Chani makes mushrooms when she pees while ferrying a baby, Cav refuses to take his helmet off while making pew pew noises, and Mike answers the question about who watches the Watchmen (apparently it's him).

Watch the skies people.

This week, we've got to drag this one back to the precinct because the Lieutenant is breaking our balls. We're playing it by our own rules, busting the bad guys and chasing them down back alleys full of boxes and produce. Yes, for Episode 5-0 we're looking at Police Procedurals. We look at our favourite examples of the genre, and ask why they hold such fascination for us.

Plus Chani's jonesing for Borderlands, Cav's only joking, and Mike says the magic word.

Game be the game.

Do you like horror franchises? This week we have a doozy. Arnold Scwarzenegger as the Final Girl, Bill Paxton as annoying-douchebag-who-gets-killed, Topher Grace as Really? Him? and Olivia Munn being officially done with this shit.

Yes. It's the various permutations of Predator. We go as deep as we can stomach, and sometimes deeper than that.

Plus Cav gets Mouldy and Piratey, Mike gets into Ninja Sex, and Chani has epic ranty beef with RDR2.

This week we look at the often unsung heroes of small and silver screen, the Character Actor. We salute our favourite examples, and look at what makes them good at what they do.

 

Plus, Cav fiddles with his Dragonballs, Mike enjoys Discovery, and Chani goes Mads for Polar.

 

One of these days, the puns might get better. But today is not that day.
