We start off this week’s episode by getting our guilty on with Glenn’s Guilty Pleasures. Inspired by Zero Woman, Glenn sends the WTF factor through the roof with Beautiful Hunter. They discuss the appeal of kickass women while Brad and Christina encourage him to buy the 3rd series of Angel in order to appreciate Amy Acker.

Geek Cuisine is generously sponsored by Jill at The Signal, with unbelievably decadant Leonidas chocolates from Harrods, at Knightsbridge. Rule Britania! Our most grateful thanks!

Toy Talk finds Glenn getting the RAM runaround from Tiger Direct after purchasing a new computer. Brad and Christina share their Valentine’s Day presents for each other as only geeks can. Christina received the Official Visual Companion of Firefly Volume 1, and Wicked: The Grimmerie, and she got Brad Stargate SG-1: The Ultimate Visual Guide, and a subscription to Playboy. Chicken soup for Brad’s soul this week came in the form of DC’s Showcase Green Lantern volume 2, and the Green Lantern Corps HeroClix set. The trio discuss the marketing tactics of World of Warcraft, while Brad and Christina talk about Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz for the Wii.

The ultimate new toy this week, however, is Brad’s new mixer!

As the show attempts to close, the trio discusses remakes and sequels. They note the classic Willy Wonka versus Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as well as Johnny Depp’s performance inspiration past, present, and future. Christina discusses her apprehension for the Tim Burton’s film adatptation of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. The conversation turns to mysteriously-present-during-murder characters such as Angela Lansbury as Jessica Fletcher from Murder She Wrote, and Sam and Dean of Supernatural. Continuing, they speak about War Games, The Producers, and the “new groovy” series Rules of Engagement.

Finallly, they wrap up the week with the upcoming Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and the soon-to-be released second season of Justice League Unlimited.

Promos this week are for The Scapecast and The 9th-A Heroescast, and our musical interlude is (Christina’s favorite) winner of the Jonathan Coulton Code Monkey remix contest.
