Aboard the Geek Seeker, Merchman shares some of the best scenes from Assembly of Geeks this past year - including battles between GANNIN and Admiral Eighties, monsters like the one that attacked us, and explosions caused by experiments gone awry. If you've never listened to an episode of Assembly of Geeks before, this is a great way to find out why this show is truly a geeky podcast experience.
In the Assembly Hall, the topic of conversation is all about the SFX Magazine's 250 greatest moments in sci-fi, fantasy & horror. With only some of the list getting teased, the conversation branches out into other geek talk about Wash's death in Serenity, great moments from Firefly, what doesn't belong in the top 10 and moments we hope made the list.
This episode opens up with Merchman's wife setting off an alarm at The Fantastic Fortress, costing Admiral 80s a very important Jenga victory. Once inside, she gets her superhero name and steps in for Fangirl. She also brought Merchman's D-Tech Me X-Wing Fighter Pilot figure he made at Star Wars Weekends.
And speaking of of Star Wars Weekends, Aaron Harris from Coffee With Kenobi attended all five weekends. He joins us to discuss the memories, the fandom and the best moments from his time there.
Justin Cavender (JustInCredible) from Geek Legacy shares his biggest takeaways from this year's E3.
Other geek news and topic in this episode include, gamers foiling a home burglary, unique facts about the movie Gremlins, the backstory behind the Ghostbusters song and music video, details about a new Transformers animated series, storylines from the proposed live-action Star Wars: Underworld series, the release date for the Phineas and Ferb Star Wars special, a proposed Sci-Fi Museum, the possible DC Universe movie line-up and the casting of Aquaman.
We also announce the winner of our Star Wars Rebels drawing!
All this plus Merchman is launching another podcast!
Clone Wars is on Netflix? EXCELLENT! *Air guitar riff*
As Star Wars fans indulge in The Lost Missions, the Assembly gathers to celebrate...until Merchman makes a shocking Clone Wars revelation. The only thing that could distract everyone from that is a time traveling phone booth! Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure turns 25 and as a result, a lot of geeks feel old. However, that doesn't stop us from revisiting four other geek films that are also celebrating the anniversary.
With Clone Wars on everyone's mind, we look back on what a most triumphant character Ahsoka Tano has been for Star Wars and how the series impacted the Star Wars universe as a whole. We'll also discuss reactions to the latest Gotham casting and the new Transformers 4 trailer.
Finally, as opposed to discussing the Oscars we hand out our own Geek Oscar awards to Best Geek Character, Best Geek Sequel, Biggest Geek Disappointment & Best Geek Movie.
Join the adventure and remember...Joan of Arc is still not Noah's wife.
The introduction of Windblade has stirred up some debate in the geek community about Transformer (or robot) gender. Does the creation of characters like Windblade and Arcee mean there are male and female bots? Or is it just another way they're adopting to human life? We discuss Windblade, robot gender and emotions in today's assembly.
Also, why don't we have hoverboards yet? What about flying cars (like Admiral 80s has)? Why hasn't Jaws made 19 movies? We discuss Back to the Future II's version of 2015 and compare it with today's reality.
We'll decide whether or not Carrie Fisher's "confirmation" about Episode VII holds water or if it's just more trash compactor garbage. Other topics includeGal Gadot's Wonder Woman contract, the Harry Potter park expansion, a Frozen sing-along and the Batman movie we'll get to see this year.
And Merchman announces a very popular geek TV series that he plans to watch for the first time!
