In this episode we talk about the things we’ve been geeking out on for the past few months and then play a cruel, cruel game of Spoiler Trivia. Ryan has to answer trivia questions and for every one he misses the questioner gets to reveal a spoiler about Batman v. Superman (because Ryan is so lame he still hasn’t seen it). Find out what happens after the break!
2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
This week on the podcast, there was no Jenny. That means a lot of boring stuff about box office numbers that haven’t happened yet.
I mean, yeah, there was some Mars talk that proves Watson is as bad at counting as Jenny, but at least they didn’t get into some really complicated numbers over how many rocks from the Sun Mars happens to be when Mars has two moons of its own to screw with his totals even more.
I’m sure Tom Kelly could speak to this much better than I can, and probably will in his podcast reaction column, but there seems to be some misunderstanding around the DC Multiverse and what the end of Convergence sets in motion.
Ryan is right that the original Crisis destroyed the multiverse. However, it hasn’t remained that way for 29 years.
Some weeks ago we started a discussion about how to handle spoilers after a GeekMail was read during our podcast that spoiled something in Avengers Age of Ultron. The podcast episode dropped 13 days after Age of Ultron came out, but it did spoil for at least one listener and was worth discussing. Because spoilers are a very real concern in our information age and especially among people who care passionately about the subject potentially being spoiled–which is, of course, you our readers and listeners. After giving the matter some thought, I believe I have come to a fair way to handle spoilers moving forward and so I am proposing the Gabbing Geek Spoiler Policy after the break. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
If you’ve enjoyed listening to the Gabbing Geek podcast, and judging by the traffic at least dozens of you have, then you might also like listening to an audio book. If the last time you tried listening to a book was by using a bunch of tapes or CDs, the technology is amazing now. Audible was purchased many years ago by Amazon but only recently did they finally connect Kindle books with Audible audio books. The result? The two formats perfectly sync. Find out what that means for you and how you can get a free audio book at www.audibletrial.com/gabbinggeek after the break!
This week on the podcast, Jenny and the guys were discussing nothing but the Avengers. They had spelling contests, some weird thing that involved guessing obscure Avengers heroes, and for some reason Madame Xanadu, and some running bit about Nick Fury being much more awesome that he’s been depicted to be up to this point.
Yeah, I think I’m with Jenny on that one. Nick isn’t really an Avenger.
