Glenn opens up the evening with his review of Ghost Rider, comparing the movie adaptation to that of another comic blockbuster, Fantastic Four. Glenn also adds to his dvd collection with Ultraman, Series 1 volume 2, the Hellboy Collector Set, the third series of Millennium, Invincible Iron Man, and talks of Irwin Allen’s Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, as well as the Doctor Strange preview.
The triad thanks Mike and Steve over at Podholes for their review of the show.
The tube makes boobs of us all this week, as we gush about our favorite shows. We discuss (and differ) about Jewel Staite on Stargate Atlantis (SPOILER WARNING). Glenn enjoys the budding Chiller TV, showing a marathon of Friday the 13th The Series. As always, Lost, Battlestar Gallactica, The Class, and How I Met Your Mother get a mention. Brad and Christina are giddy with Whovian joy for the past episode of Heroes, and easily see Hayden Panettiere, as a recast of Buffy, in our fantasy universes. The trio introduce The Dresden Files into the roster, and anticipate Claudia Black making a cameo in the Dresden universe. Glenn compares The Prestige and The Illusionist.
Geek Cuisine this week is courtesy of one of our listeners in the form of curiously textured Gummy Luau Skeletons, and Glenn makes Christina’s day with a box of Morning Spark.
Music this week is granted to us from Jonathan Coulton’s competition to remix his song, “Code Monkey”. Tune in next week for another of the winners.
Class participation this week: If you could recast a new series of Buffy The Vampire Slayer today, who would you cast in each role, and why?
