Geek Fights Best Holiday Special Or Movie 2013 Edition

We weren't joking. Every year, we are running this episode just like real holiday specials on TV. We'll add something, first it was Allen remastering the audio and adding an intro and easter eggs. Then it was Mike doing a commentary on the episode. This year we added a little something new too. The old stuff as always is Damon Shaw, Mike Ortiz, Kathy Lehman, Tess Craft and Allen discussing the BEST HOLIDAY SPECIAL OR MOVIE. 


Bah humbug!

Into Trekness II: The Wrath of Harrison

Join Damon Shaw, Mike Ortiz, Chris Mitchell and Michael Felsher as they share their thoughts during a commentary and discussion of the most successful and controversial Star Trek movie to date, Star Trek Into Darkness. The fan community has been divided by this movie, with much of the conversation dominated by critics of the movie. We present a counter view, focusing on the strengths of the movie as a reminider that geeks do not all think with one Borg-like mind.


IDIC bitches.

Geek Fights 152: Best Sci-fi/Fantasy TV Show - C2E2 Drunk Show

scifi_fantsy_tv_c2e2.jpg

On the off chance, that the idea of listening to us get together in one room and get drunk while we record still appeals to you after the previous two C2E2 shows, Damon Shaw, Mike Ortiz, Christy Wooke, Jerad Formby, Karin, Dave Gill, Tess Craft, Kathy Lehman, (spoiler alert) Anne Geyer, Allen (via Skype) and the incredibly handsome Matt do their best to make sure you never do again. Its less hate crime-y than before, but also somehow less coherent. The first half isnt too bad, but clearly the sharing of the microphone and the random choices (man there is some crappy shows on this list) and the booze and the brownies all lead to a hot mess by the end. It doesn't really even end, which is ironic as it probably should never have begun.

Geek Fights 136: Best Of Firefly

best_of_firefly.jpg

The Browncoats are coming, the Browncoats are coming! And Damon Shaw, Mike Ortiz, Jerad Formby, Patrick McCartney, Kirky Wade and Gary Tognetti are with them! They are talking about the BEST OF FIREFLY. Hear them wax poetic about the short lived show that only seems to become more powerful in death than it was in life. Just like Obi Wan Kenobi and Jesus. I'm not sure if this episode will make Firefly fans happy or angry, probably both, but more angry.

Turns out they can take the sky from you, but not the brackets. PDF and Excel format.

Chris Reads Volume 5: Pretty In Pink

From Wikipedea:

"Pretty in Pink" is a song by the English rock band The Psychedelic Furs, originally released in 1981 as a single from the band's second album, Talk Talk Talk. The song inspired the 1986 film of the same name and a re-recorded version of the song was included on the film's soundtrack.

Release and reception The original version of "Pretty in Pink" peaked at number 43 on the UK Singles Chart in July 1981.[1] Allmusic writer Bill Janovitz credits producer Steve Lillywhite for finding "the ideal sound for the band, with a perfect blend of classic pop, punk, and art rock elements".[2] Janovitz called it "the definitive take" of the song.[2]

Thanks to Greg Blanchard of the Inappropriate Conversations podcast for the suggestion.

Geek Fights 133: Best Santa

best_santa.jpg

Once a year an elderly fat man in red traverses the globe violating airspace and nearly triggering a nuclear holocaust just to bring toys to mostly undeserving children. You know to cover that much ground he must be either traveling at an incredible velocity, risking massive shockwaves or using some sort of warp technology and risking a wormhole implosion that could suck the entire planet into a black hole. All in all a pretty risky endeavor any way you slice it. Sounds like some sort of thrill seeking adrenaline junkie to me. In honor of that spirit, Damon Shaw, Mike Ortiz, Allen, Brian Townsend and Josh Vanvalkenburg bring you BEST SANTA.

Ho ho ho.
