Geek Speak 103: News Crash

Hello and welcome!

This episode of Geek Speak is a little bit different. Lauren was away working at Insomnia and Jo was participating in a 24-hour fundraising marathon for Special Effects, so Alex called on the old troops… or a troop (?), O.K. maybe just one soldier. She was joined by Julia (her Cookies & Booze co-host) for this episode to chat about some NEWS! That’s right, we are adding a news segment to our show!

Full disclosure, originally we discussed more topics on the show, including Glow (a high recommend from us all) and Alien: Covenant, but due to an audio hiccup, this has been cut out of the show. We apologize for that. However, we hope you enjoy this show and see you next week when the normal(-ish) service should resume!

Alex and Julia chat about:

  • Time-Waster of the Week: Just Write YouTube channel
  • There is a Joker origin story in the works
  • Death Note is live on Netflix and we are concerned
  • Hannibal is coming back!
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • We briefly chat about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Diablo III and Until Dawn

    I’m not sure what DC is thinking by making an origin story for and using a different actor to play the Joker. Seems to me they’d be better off making a Harley Quinn origin story with the Joker as a supporting actor/co-star. 

    In other DC news, it looks like Supergirl’s season 3 is shooting now, since Kevin Smith’s been posting some shots from the sets, some with some of the cast. Looking forward to that and the rest of the Arrowverse shows.

    They are thinking: ‘CASH! CASH! CASH!’

    Hi guys awesome show, don’t need more dc shows and not a joker one, eBay character is awesome and does not need explanations and origins, just needs to be insanity and in different versions different types of insanity. 

    But yes they are looking at all them dollars they can make lol. Love the idea that hannibal is back yes more please and more American gods lol. As for death note I agree with what wisecracks said about it and also agree with got guys saying it’s slow, and they cannot get the balance right or will be awful and went more the location just why.

    They should probably think about saving it because their cinematic universe hasn’t been doing well at the box office?

    Not too sure about others, but Wonder Woman definitely did well. Not that they will learn any lesson from that…

    I have just looked and all there films have made over 800mil at the box office each in revenue, so I don’t think they will be learning anything good from them lol.

    Just wanted to say I watched the death note movie, OMFG I don’t have the words, just S\*\*t.

    Yup, what we feared happened…. I’ll talk briefly about it on ep 104

    I really bespair at the fact that they thought that was okay, that that plot was meaningful in context of the source material. I will wait to see what you think but I I really disappointed.

    Fair point, but I think that might be because the DCEU is new, and people pay the monies to see the films hoping they will be good. But that goodwill will only go so far. Marvel’s been able to hold it for 16 films so far. I think DC has just one success (Wonder Woman) under its belt.
