Disney's Aladdin

Tonight on GeekNights, despite having not seen it in over a decade, we review Disney's Aladdin. In the news, Miyazaki is (actually) retiring, and every one of you should read Trillium. We also discuss the rumors that Anno could get to try his hand at NausicaƤ (and how that would be HUGE for the anime industry), as well as how Attack on titan appears to be causing a resurgence in anime watching among previously "lapsed" anime fans.

Protip: If you need something to watch while you wait for season two of Attack on Titan, and need that cliffhanger fix, try (in this order) Madoka Magica, Vision of Escaflowne, Giant Robo.

Adventure Time!

Tonight on GeekNights, it's Adventure Time! (Scott wouldn't sing the song). In the news, Venture Brothers is starting up a new season soon, physical media continues to die, and Princess Knight is getting a remastered release (but dub only).

Gravity Falls

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the delightful Gravity Falls. But first, Scott is buying an new pillow, I want you all to contribute to #ikuharaWorld, we're not bothering with the New York Comic Con this year, the Madoka Magica movie did indeed make it to the United States, and we discuss Pitch inflation. Also, in the spirit of Halloween, prepare yourself for the visage of Frankenstein's Monster, aka a hockey goalie in the days before facemasks.

The GeekNights IRC channel is rocking! Also, we need to know if you want us to do one or more of: An episode-by-episode analysis of Shoujo Kakumei Utena, OR, Scott muckspreading. Finally: Ultra Relax!

Guest Hosts: Ub Iwerks

Tonight on GeekNights our guest hosts from Those Darn Cats! present Ub Iwerks, the largely unsung co-creator of Mickey Mouse. But before that, they GeekBite the obscure film "All This and World War II" and the anime Humanity Has Declined.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the hit new animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It's a reboot of the My Little Pony universe produced by Studio B Productions, and it has some surprising demographics. There's also a Thundercats reboot coming involving Studio 4C, and Bone is coming in color (again)!

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Tonight on GeekNights, we review with our guest Emily Compton the wonderful Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Scott geekbites The Walking Dead (TV), and Rym remembers the days of anime clubs as Mike Toole reminds us why we used to join them.

Looney Tunes

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. We also reconsider Eden of the East, now that Rym has finished it, consider reconsidering Trigun, speculate on the likely nomination of Summer Wars for the Oscar, and look forward to seeing Studio 4C's Japan/France anti smoking interactive short.
