Tonight on GeekNights we review the wonderful Castle Waiting by Linda Medley. Also tonight, consider Mike Toole's exploration of the late and great Osamu Dezaki and a fans' petition to bring back the OLD Transformers comics. We're also back from Anime Boston, and we're still taking panel/workshop submissions for ConnectiCon 2011!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review, under the auspices of the GeekNights Book Club, Michio Kaku's Hyperspace. Scott is happy about a surprisingly effective law against strangulation, and Rym is amazed at the fear young punk kids instill in the old and white of Ohio.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Yomi: Fantasy Strike (from the maker of Puzzle Strike). But before that, Rym has a geekbite on the Rush'n Attack reboot Rush'n Attack: Ex-Patriot (TL;DL: not enough rushing, too much Russian, and far too little attacking) and Scott considers Jane McGonigal's new game Find the Future.
Tonight on GeekNights, back from both PAX and Zenkaikon, we bring you our review of the surprisingly entertaining Spot It and highlights from PAX East 2011. We also have some thoughts on the Nintendo 3DS, having now finally manhandled one (though not, as it were, at PAX).
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)!
Tonight on GeekNights, we recall the surprisingly solid 90s OAV Mahou Tsukai Tai (including its adorable opener). In the news, the New York International Children's Film Festival returns with, among other wonderful screenings, Time of Eve and Welcome to the Space Show. Also, the Pokemon Trainer Challenge comes to be.
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.
