Ducktales (2017)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new Ducktales reboot. It's everything we could have hoped, and you can watch the first episode legally for free! Here's hoping it's the beginning of a new Disney Afternoon. In other news, Little Witch Academia is fantastic, Giant Robo is fantastic, Ghosts of Miami has launched, Flamecon is fantastic, and the Anime News Network hasn't gotten its domain back yet.

The GeekNights Forum is amazing, and you should join it! We will be back for our 42nd PAX Panel in a couple weeks! The next GeekNights book club book is The Fifth Season!
