Welcome to Current Geek: Autopilot Edition. A chance for us to go back and watch the pilot episode of an old classic/geeky TV show and talk about how it differed from the series it became and what we remember about that series in general! I’m Scott Johnson, he’s Tom Merritt, and this week, we’re talking about The Larry Sanders Show!
Nasa digitized a lot of audio for you and me. Lucasfilm confirms they will put Leia in episode 9. There are 45,000 year old worms among us. Netflix is making Locke and Key a thing. MoviePass might pass soon. Scott is rediscovering level 1 in WoW, and Tom loved MI:6. We will soon have trash bins that sort everything and keep all the good stuff in spools, and more!
Lando is coming back for number 9. Space stuff! HBO is doing a new Whedon show. Do NOT open that coffin. Y: The Last Man is coming to FX. What Star Trek ship would you live on? Echos but for dogs! Toto’s perspective and more!
It’s an AutoPilot episode, and it’s time to finally lay The Animaniacs out for all to see! Scott has issues. Tom has thoughts.
More star-trek? Sounds good! Lucasfilm is putting stuff on hold. Netflix shows a peak at Matt Groening’s new show! That guy did not lose his head as we thought! Russian billionaire wants to take you to space. FOURCAST: No hair in the future. BEST THING OF ALL TIME THIS WEEK: 1password 7 and Broadchurch. Your emails and more!
Our monthly look at the best films ever continues, this time with Singing In The Rain!
This afternoon, Scott Johnson and I sat down on a hangout to chat with the chat room, take some questions and even do some live brainstorming about the forthcoming return of Current Geek in 2014. The show will definitely be a weekly gathering of the folks you love talking about the geeky things you care about. Tech, movies, video games, comic books etc, will all be on the docket. Plus we talk about ideas for guests and segments and much much more.
The video is in two parts as we had a little hangout glitch in the middle. Other than that it went off without a hitch. Enjoy!
