The guilt comes first this week as one of Glenn’s Guilty Pleasures welcomes us all back into the studio!
This one finds us at “Doomsday”, to which even the salesman at Best Buy suggested, “Rent it.” The boys talk about Rhona Mitra, the original Con Model for Laura Croft. We muse about the future of Blu-ray content, and cross our fingers and click our heels that the likes of Wizard of Oz and other classic Hollywood musicals make it to the new medium.
Geek And Tell finds Glenn saddened at the prospect of now owning the last issue of Warren Ellis’ “Black Summer”, but finds solace in his new copy of “The Art of Witchblade”, and some of the great art by the late Michael Turner. Christina plans to pick up the dvd set of the Witchblade series, the gang talks about the anime, and Brad is surprised to find out that Yancy Butler is supposed to be a guest at Dragon Con. Brad has also added two new Green Lantern figures to the emerald fortress, with DC Direct’s Batman as a Green Lantern figure and an Infinite Heroes Guy Gardner Green Lantern figure. He’s also added Artoo Potatoo and a Spud Trooper to his shelf of plastic starch.
We wrap up this episode geeking about what the boys call one of the most beautiful games to come to a console in years, Soul Calibur 4. They’ve got it for the X Box 360, but do you have it for the PS3? Tell us what you think? We continue about the beauty of Bioshock and the beast of Thrill Kill. What’s your favorite, most visually stunning game?
Thank you so much to our fellow Louisvillian for the voicemail about the girly geekness of Colin Firth. Christina will have to watch Bridget Jones, Importance of Being Earnest, Pride and Prejudice, Fever Pitch and Love Actually, and get back to you. Oh, the things she puts herself through for her listeners!
