Tonight on GeekNights, we consider James Bond (in cinema). In the news, Rym is back from London, and New York has a lot of good options for connecting LGA to the rest of the city. Your regularly scheduled GeekNights should resume from this point forward!
The Alien Franchise
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the Alien franchise. While clearly the first two movies are the best the franchise will likely ever have to offer, much like Spiderman it is so iconic to be nearly universally recognized. In the news, Youtube is removing dislike counts, the economy isn't in great shape (in ways you might not even realize), and the Playdate is delayed.
Star Wars: Rogue One
Tonight on GeekNights, now that we can assume everyone has seen it, we talk about Rogue One. It's a Star Wars Story. Easily the fourth best Star Wars movie. In the news, the Superb Owl LI is coming, the hybrid icing rule change was a great idea, and you should call the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs to oppose Steve Bannon's role in the National Security Council. In a short span, NYC Taxis, NYC Bodegas, and Comcast employees have all struck, with the looming and hopeful potential of an anti-Trump General Strike.

The Jurassic Park Franchise
Tonight on GeekNights, Jurassic Park. From the good movie, to the bad one, to the SNES game. Also some other Michael Crichton stuff. In the news, check out the NYPD vs FDNY brawl, and New York moves a bunch of low level crimes from criminal to civil court.
The GeekNights Patreon continues unabated!
Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss horror and what we enjoy in that genre of media. In other news, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a powerful argument for both the expansion and embracing of a fair-use culture, and Nintendo unprecedentedly cuts the price on the faltering DSI. Also, Scott has never seen Mazes and Monsters, and he lost his fancy water bottle (which he really, really needed to share).
Tonight, get your aaasss to maaahs with the 90s classic Total Recall. But first, a brave man who fights the tides of Internet comments, a brave man shooting the moon on some Middle Eastern foreign policy, and some manufactured outrage.
Scott Pilgrim: The Movie
Tonight on GeekNights, we bring to you our thoughts on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. We also consider laws against talking to strangers or talking at all.
