Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Emily review Bojack Horseman. The critics are right, and this show is fantastic, if dark. It's definitely worth watching. The first season takes some episodes to hit its stride, season two is a perfect arc, and season three is a series of largely high-concept episodes.
Tonight on the GeekNights Book Club, we review and discuss (with spoilers, obviously), Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake. We enjoyed it thoroughly, and had a lot to say. Gene-fueled science fiction dystopia, too-real commercialization of life itself, and a short read to boot, we had no choice but to make this - the first of the MaddAddam Trilogy) our GeekNights Book Club choice.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Flying Witch (ふらいんぐうぃっち). It's light, pretty, generally enjoyable, and otherwise inoffensive. In the news, Billy Bat nears its conclusion, the Queen Emeraldas manga is coming out in (hardcover) English, the GUNDAM movies are online for free (for now), a Mouse Guard movie is in the works, and an SDCC staffer hijacks the "Women in Feminism" panel at SDCC.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the largely mediocre anime: The Lost Village (迷家-マヨイガ-). It would be great if it were actually a parody of shows like this, but it is unfortunately earnest. Jeff Lemire's Black Hammer comes. The New York Comic Con's professional badges are as scarce as the fan badges (and that's a good thing). Change your passwords.
Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Scott have watched a bunch of different anime, but not much of the same anime. So we talk about some Space Patrol Luluco, Lupin, Joker Game, Erased (which Emily and Rym both reviewed and did some final thoughts for on the Patreon), Kiznaiver, Sakamoto, and more. In the news, Captain America joins Hydra, and the NYCC is trying something with its badge sellout problem. I guess, and
Tonight on GeekNights, with two and .25 plays respectively, we review Fast Food Franchise and Food Chain Magnate. Scott laments a cookie thief, Civilization VI is coming just as we start to get really into Civ V, and the 2016 Spiel Des Jahres nominees are now known.
The GeekNights Patreon is going strong with Rym and Emily reviews, bonus shows, and more!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review and discuss Miitomo. We could arguably have talked about it on basically any GeekNights night, but we chose Tuesday because while it is a social network, it is also a candy box. And, it was made by Nintendo. In other news, Rym is frightened and confused by Fast Food Franchise, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! has been reluctant to reveal its mysteries, and the worst people on Earth attack an indie game, while the zeitgeist of humanity attacks a random farm.
