Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2023)
Tonight on GeekNights we review the 2023 animated series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. The animation and style are fantastic, and if you have or know kids this is a show for them! In the news, Rym bought a new wallet, don't watch any more Made in Abyss, the NHL did a cool telemetry-driven hockey broadcast, and Ghibli Fest 2023 is on!
Sonic X (2003)
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Sonic X (2003). An anime TV series based on Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, adapted poorly by 4kids, it's not too bad. In the news, convention "leaks" are always funny, retroactive editing is becoming more and more common, someone leaked the entire 87 minute animatic of the (sadly) canceled Genndy Tartakovsky Popeye feature, and Anime Matsuri remains one of the worst anime cons in the world, and it's spinning off a "dubbing studio" with a known sex pest.
Cartoon Cartoons (1995-2003)
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the cartoons of Cartoon Cartoons (1995-2003). Dexter's Lab, Johnny Bravo, The Powerpuff Girls, and all the rest. In the news, Made in Abyss is returning July 6, Inu-Oh is coming August 12 and has an English trailer, and Scott geekbites Osamu Tezuka's W3 (Wonder 3).
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Centaurworld. It's on Netflix, Rym loves it, and it's a musical. In the news, Initial D is getting a successor anime with MF Ghost. The Ghost is selling cars too, Mr. Boop is getting a deluxe hardcover book, and Rym has some thoughts on SK8 the Infinity.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider The Simpsons. It looms large in popular culture despite its trendline, and was a formative part of both our lives.
In the news, don't go to anime conventions in April, Bandai Namco Holdings consolidates its overseas subsidiaries, Ikuhara's Penguindrum gets a compilation film project, Keanu Reeves stars in BZRKR, Wookieepedia is (correctly) forced to stop deadnaming actors, Voltes V continues to go hard, The Great Pretender is not being talked about enough, and King of the Hill, unlike the topic of our show tonight, was canceled.
Adventure Time: Distant Lands - Obsidian
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the second installment in Adventure Time: Distant Lands with Obsidian. In the news, Rym got his Index and finished Deca-Dence, The Art of Wolfwalkers is very good, Funimation adds many Gundams, Venture Brothers is cancelled (but also possibly un-canceled), and the publishing industry needs some antitrust action ASAP.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review The Mandalorian. It's some Star Wars. In the news, LEGO Super Mario is amazing but probably not for you, and Overwatch Hero Pools are already making big waves.
