Episode 50 – Fall 2012 Geek Preview (a.k.a Manny, Pixie Dream Girl)

Holy crap, somehow we spent an hour just talking about the latest episode of Doctor Who and The Maryhill Museum before even tackling the Geek Week in Review or the much-delayed Fall 2012 Geek Preview. At least this is mixed with talk about why Anne finally gave up on The Casual Vacancy and general goofing off about Dishonored, Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Promise, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Freaks & Geeks/My So-Called-Life on Netflix, the most recent episodes of Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock, The Cloud Atlas and the new Universal Classic Monsters Blu-ray box set.

On the Geek Week in Review front: Nintendo’s sudden enthusiasm in releasing downloadable retail software for the 3DS and the Wii U, Assassin’s Creed III Evil King George DLC, The Wizard of Oz in 3D, Hermione Granger in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, Rian Johnson’s in-theatre commentary for Looper and Tig Nataro’s $5 comedy set about her cancer diagnosis.

Finally – at the 2 hour & 3 minute-mark of the podcast – it’s the Fall 2012 Geek Preview where we break down all the movies, videogames, books, comics and DVD/Blu-Ray releases between now and the end of the year. Enjoy!
