“What would Sheldon say?”
This episode is mostly about catching up on the news. But we slipped into something that’s becoming a regular segment, the Game of Thrones check-in. And during this check-in, we created the future battle between the Na’vi and the Dothraki role-players. That’s right. We’re calling for a LARP-off. This is happening.
We also do a check-in on Paolo Bacigalupi’s Wind-up Girl, which we’ll wrap-up next episode.
