Join Lauren, Mon and Alex as they geek out about:

  • Weird Find of the Week: Tongue twisters courtesy of Coleman

  • Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate happened and Lauren went to the launch party at Loading Bar
  • Mon tries to convince girls that they should be watching Doctor Who
  • Alex went to MCM Comic Con and attended Con Man panel with Alan Tudyk and Nolan North
  • We also talked about books/comics vs movie/TV series adaptations (courtesy of  Cartridge Discount)
    • Losers
    • Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit
    • Harry Potter
  • Listener’s question: What game got us into gaming? (Thank you to Craig Hadley, we will return to this question again as we were running out of time on this episode)
  • Listener’s question: What’s the best way to kill time in a lecture? (Thanks to Simon! He is also to blame for wookie noises we were making this episode)

    I did the same as Alex back when HP 7 came out. I was on holiday in Italy and managed to find a bookshop with an English version on the day it came out. Finished it by the evening.

    The only film I watched and then decided I wanted to read the book was “The Shining”. Best decision I ever made. Screamed through the book, and although I do think the book is better, I can appreciate the film’s score and setting to create the atmosphere.

    My favourite quote that I think nails the difference is “Instead of a normal man who becomes insane, Nicholson portrays a crazy man attempting to remain sane.”. I’d love them to add the scene with the bushes into the film now we have that capability.

    Great show ladies!
