Darkness is the theme of the day at the Fantastic Fortress (and not just because Merchman is about to see Deathly Hallows Part 2). It is Halloween week and we've filled the podcast with talk of death and darkness.
First Taylor Lymbery (The 8-bit kid) joins us to remember the days of Saturday Morning Cartoons after they all officially died on October 4th. Later, Dan Zehr of Coffee With Kenobi joins the Geek Assembly to discuss those moments when darkness falls on our favorite heroes and characters.
When do the darker stories work best? When does darkness seem meaningless or unnecessary? How do character deaths positively/negatively impact a story? We discuss those questions and more.
We'll also react to the news of a new Harry Potter story that's coming out this Halloween & find out where the infamous Scream mask came from.
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.
GANNIN is determined to make this assembly meeting as Halloween worthy as possibly by continuously trying to spook the supergeeks. Meanwhile, we discuss the Halloween costumes we wore as kids and the ones we want to wear today. We also discuss horror movies that actually scared us in the movie theater.
We react to a Star Wars themed flyer that was handed out at a licencing show, rumors about the new Batmobile, the latest on how Shedder be portrayed in the new Ninja Turtles movie and how horror movies aren't bloody enough (according to reality).
The Assembly votes on this question, "If you had to become a creature of the night, what would it be? A vampire, a werewolf, a zombie or something else?"
