Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Futurama in all its glory. In the news, there's not much to talk about in the anime world (though Urban Vision appears to be doing poorly), and Scott geekbites Strange Tales MAX.
Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss our disappointment with Gogo Miyazaki's Gedo Senki - Tales from Earthsea. In the news, there is no other news but the sad, sudden passing of one of the most important people in anime, let alone animation: Satoshi Kon. He will be missed. If you have never seen Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress, Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Godfathers, Magnetic Rose, or Paprika, do yourself a favor and seek them out.
Tonight on GeekNights, we present our final thoughts on Scott Pilgrim, the comic, in advance of Scott Pilgrim, the Movie, and Scott Pilgrim, the game. In the news, Scott is an old man, and Superman saved everybody (or something like that).
Tonight on GeekNights, a proper review of the excellent anime Durarara. In the news, we discuss the coming end of the anime industry, DiscoTek's coming English releases of the Galaxy Express 999 movies and Project A-Ko, the "stabbing" in Hall H at ComicCon, and Otakon is this weekend (though we will not be attending or performing any panels for the first time since 2001).

- Hush by Mara Sternberg
- The Art of Becky Dreistadt (Tiny Kitten Teeth)
- Shapes: The New Brethren by McQuade/Sallese
