Adam starts off with his and Cristalle’s walking in the Waggin’ Trail marathon for the Kentucky Humane Society. In preparation for the season four airing of Arrested Development, he is rewatching the previous seasons. Aside from Elizabeth’s recital and catching up on TV, Christina hasn’t been up to much. Glenn had a wonderful Wonderfest, and tells of meeting the classiest Catwoman, Lee Meriwether, and scream queen Brinks Stevens. Everyone is looking forward to Derby City Comicon and Fandomfest. Brad is still pounding the virtual pavement for a job to suit his talents. He is excited to finally get his Ouya in the mail.
In a not-too-Guilty Pleasure, Glenn shares the retro-future of Manborg! Reveling in the glorious 80’s cheese, the green screen work shines for the era and the budget. Not taking themselves overly serious, the cast are a motley band of characters. In the previews on the dvd, Christina is horrified and intrigued to see Tommy Knight in Stitches. Brad noticed Michael Rooker in the preview of the Guilty-worthy movie, Hypothermia. In Guilty Pleasure gaming, Glenn talks about Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. He enjoys the retro feel and the great cut scenes.
Geek Cuisine has two of Brad’s favorite food groups this week! Snyder’s Bacon Cheddar pretzel pieces!

He watched the The Hounds of Baskerville of Sherlock and only has one left before he’s caught up. He is caught up on Teen Wolf and getting in to The Sarah Conner Chronicles.
