Bee and Puppycat

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new episodes of Bee and Puppycat on Cartoon Hangover. It's a delightful show, and there's every reason to watch it. Rym also brings us some thoughts on the cartoons he's been watching lately (The Amazing World of Gumball, Steven Universe, Sailor Moon (again), Sailor Moon Crystal, and My Little Pony: Rainbow Rocks (don't watch that one). In Japan, the top two anime on TV are still Sazae-san and Doraemon.

What Phone Should Rym Buy?

Tonight on GeekNights, Rym debates what phone he should buy to replace his Nexus 4. The Sony Z3 compact is the smallest (smaller than the iPhone 6), but is still a god damned monster. In the end, the best cell phone to buy at the end of 2014 is either the iPhone 5s or the Nexus 4. In the news, you can sort of build an actual PC on Newegg, New York's gentrification monoliths are getting gigabit WiFi, Google Glass is "dead," at least for mass market consumers, but still has massive utility in professional spaces. Also, you can start to earnestly debate whether or not it's immoral to torture a simulated creature.

Apples

Tonight on GeekNights, in another of the ever-popular food shows, we talk about apples. Since is a very New York topic, we have a good deal of other New York talk as well. From Rym's encounter with a subway commotion to Scott's encounter with a little box on fire to the scaffold drama at 1WTC, it's a New York night! Also, Amazon and Hachette have apparently resolved their dispute.

Super Smash Brothers 3DS

Tonight on GeekNights, back from PAX Australia and resuming our regular schedule (as well as our ninth year of the show), we bring you our coverage of PAX Australis 2014, our review (and old-man talk) of and around Super Smash Brothers on the 3DS, discussion of cheating in tabletop tournaments, amazing competition at the Fantasy Flight world championships, Blizzard's Overwatch, Kotaku's unfortunate character count in the title of their recent article on it, and Five Nights at Freddy's 2.

US Midterm Election Special

Tonight on GeekNights, Rym is back from PAX Australia, and we're finally resuming our regular schedule next week! But, to get the ball rolling, and considering several of our friends voted incorrectly in the US New York State Midterm Elections of 2014, we discuss how and why we voted. (No on 1, Yes on 2, Yes on 3). Rym tells us a little about his time in Sydney before PAX, and Scott tells us about the Fantasy Flight streams and the Netrunner World Championships.

Sunglasses

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about sunglasses. Also a little at the end about roller coasters. Ecigs definitely leave an odor residue (distinctive of "brown permanent marker"). Apple announced some stuff, including a ridiculous monitor we both want but can't get. There was also a squandered incident involving a fan.

Anime We Never Reviewed

Tonight on GeekNights, as we struggle to watch enough new anime to warrant serious reviews in a timely fashion, we talk about some of the bigger shows we've, for various reasons, never actually reviewed. Roughly: Kaze no Yojimbo, Nadesico, KOR (Kimagure Orange Road), Marmalade Boy, Fushigi Yugi, Inu Yasha, Kodocha, MKR (Magic Knight Rayearth), Lodoss War, AMG (Ah My Goddess!), and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Conqueror of Shamballa.

In the news, Saturday Morning Cartoons are dead and Mathew Klickstein, now (thankfully) kicked out of presenting at the New York Comic Con, revealed through his bizarre and racist rant in a recent interview just how, well, racist he is.
