Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the 1999 film The Matrix. In the news, nobody wins the Pokémon T-Shirt Contest we discussed on Tuesday, a bill to ban games that abuse children with loot boxes or pay-to-win has bipartisan support in the senate, and I'm Gonna Have Me Some Fun is one of our favorite movies. Also PAX West 4-day badges return, and you should be on HIGH ALERT starting Tuesday.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic 2019 horror film Us. In the news, after some bike fails and overheating, this amazing Super Mario Commodore 64 port is taken down, Star Trek Voyager is better than you remember, and GeekNights formally endorses Elizabeth Warren for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination.
Tonight on GeekNights, along with special guest Judith of Gay Breakfast fame, we consider the surprisingly common situation wherein one is confronted with water in the ceiling.

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about doing laundry. Yes. That is what we talk about. In the news, Amazon's scam in LIC comes to an appropriate end. Maybe one of the richest entities on Earth doesn't need tax incentives to want offices in one of the greatest cities on Earth. So that said... Laundry! Don't start fires.

In the news, Tumblr has destroyed itself for reasons, the Paris protests are more complex than you probably read, the Satanic Temple continues to do good works, and you must never under any circumstances eat marmite.
Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Emily talk about their recent trip to London. We're staying home for Thanksgiving and thus have no excuse not to do a show!
