GeekNights 20191016 - It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

10/16/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the 1966 Peanuts television special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. From an exploration of PTSD and the horrors of war to the inherent fanaticism of religion, it has some surprisingly nuanced elements. In the news, Makoto Shinkai's Weathering Skis will be in American theaters, but you can see it early at Anime NYC, and Disenchantment season 2 is surprisingly good!

10/14/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about low power modes. In the news, Facebook should be broken up for having destroyed Internet media, San Francisco explores regulating emerging technology, you probably don't care about AMP or OpenJS, and we hope you remember these things.

GeekNights 20191010 - The Logistics of Moving

10/10/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, Scott having just moved, we consider the logistics of moving. We did talk about this on a GeekNights episode from 2006, but we are older and wiser in this terrifying new age. In the news, the Blizzard situation continues to evolve, the impeachment of Donald Trump becomes more urgent by the hour, we learn about the Sergeant at Arms, all utilities should be nationalized, and we hope you enjoyed the meteor showers.

10/8/2019
More

GeekNights 20191002 - Promare (2019)

10/2/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Studio Trigger's first theatrical animated film: Promare. Go see it. It makes Redline look positively tame. It's Studio Trigger: The Anime. In the news, the Lupin III CG trailer looks hot, Carole & Tuesday is utterly fantastic so far, Rie Kugimiya will be a guest at Anime NYC, and the Vic thing is basically over. We've also reviewed a lot of anime over the last 15 or so years of GeekNights. So, here are just the reviews, without the other stuff, on youtube...

GeekNights 20190930 - GPS

9/30/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, returning from our hiatus for-real this time, we consider the wonder that is the Global Positioning System. In the news, the corrupt and treasonous president of the United States is being impeached, Richard Stallman has rightfully, finally, been pushed out of the open source movement, and you shouldn't vape any of that vape juice until it's properly regulated. Check out our new Main Bits feed on Patreon and GeekNights Anime Reviews on youtube! We'll see you next at...

GeekNights 20190916 - Smartwatches

9/16/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the smartwatch. What are they really, and do you really need one? In the news, Apple has brought us the expected updates, Rym is back from Europe with a story, and Scott went to a great concert. We are back from PAX West in all our glory!

Duration:01:02:02

GeekNights 20190821 - Dr Stone

8/21/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Dr Stone anime. If nothing else, it moves fast. In the news, Archive of Our Own won a Hugo, Sony keeps Spiderman out of Disney's monopolistic clutches (for now), BronyCon comes to an end, and if you didn't know, Neil Gaiman did the English adaptation of Mononoke Hime.

Duration:01:02:46

GeekNights 20190815 - Fruit

8/15/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider fruit (except apples). In the news, someone figured out how to dispose of old TVs for free, China's bot game is mad weak, Youtube's takedown policies have changed for short musical clips, and Scott has some chair woes. Also, Grapefruit.

Duration:01:07:12

GeekNights 20190813 - Mario Maker 2

8/13/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Mario Maker 2 on the Nintendo Switch. In the news, Loot Crate is bankrupt, Dire Wolf Digital is bringing, among other things, Root to digital, System Shock 2's patch history is fascinating, and it's getting an "Enhanced Edition."

GeekNights 20190807 - Urusei Yatsura (manga)

8/7/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the recently re-released Urusei Yatsura manga by Rumiko Takahashi. It's a fine read if you never got ahold of it the first time around. In the news, after some night market adventures and a search for yuzu paste, Aggretsuko is getting a third season, Megumi Hayashibara Joins the cast of Carole & Tuesday, Disney enters the fray (for now) at $12.99, Bananya gets a second season, and She-Ra is really coming into its own with its third season. Don't miss Rym and...

GeekNights 20190805 - USB-C

8/5/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the cable to rule them all: USB-C. Note that this is not the same as USB 3 (or even 3.1). In the news, Cloudflare de-platforms the hateful and vile 8chan, followed quickly by Voxility de-platforming the equally vile Epik and Bitmitigate, Amazon continues to support white supremacist hate sites, Apple iPhone rumors are probably close to the truth, and there might be an almost usable Android smartwatch.

Duration:01:10:52

GeekNights 20190801 - Cheese

8/1/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider cheese. In the news, we wonder what the deal was with Rym's Christmas Cheese, Ninja leaves Twitch for Mixer, a bad person was rightfully denied a panel at PAX, and we remind you that GeekNights has endorsed Elizabeth Warren for the Democratic primary.

Duration:00:59:45

GeekNights 20190730 - The Wizard's Grimoire

7/30/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Vincent Baker's The Wizard's Grimoire. It's an RPG for one player and two volunteers, and it's definitely worth playing. In the news, professional Fortnite is still amateur hour (though this probably doesn't even matter), Bethesda Bethesda'd Doom on the Switch, the Overwatch role queue is a significant maturation of professional esports, and the 8BitDo SN30 might be the one controller to rule them all. Follow GeekNights on Patreon and see us live at PAX...

GeekNights 20190724 - Sarazanmai

7/24/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Kunihiko Ikuhara's recent Sarazanmai. This is not a show for children. You need to know more about Kappa than you think you do. It should be watched with the same care you'd use watching Utena. In the news, our hearts go out to the victims of the tragedy at Kyoto Animation, CATS is back, and Rym may test the waters of Fire Force despite how we may have JUDGED it. Also, read Lone Wolf and Cub.

Duration:01:00:17

GeekNights 20190716 - Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

7/16/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Koji Igarashi's Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. It's a fantastic addition to the Metroidvania genre, though it suffers from technical problems on the Switch. In the news, Overwatch takes an even heavier hand with cheaters, Overwatch League moves to a division format with some local home games, Civilization VI play-by-cloud has a lot of issues (try Giant Multiplayer Robot or Play Your Damn Turn for now), Fortnite joins the list of games banned in Jordan,...

GeekNights 20190710 - Judge Anime by its Cover: Summer 2019

7/10/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the entire upcoming Summer 2019 anime season... before we watch any of it. We've been doing this for a while as a youtube show! In the news, New York had another march through the canyon of heroes, Otomo has a new movie on the way, Akira is getting a 4k remaster, Promare is coming, Crunchyroll is partially joining HBO Max, and ConnectiCon is this weekend! Since Evangelion is available on Netflix, recall that we have previously reviewed Evangelion, and also...

GeekNights 20190708 - The Dark Web

7/8/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the Dark Web. In the news, our flights were late, youtube inconsistently enforces its "policy" on "instructional" hacking videos, 7-11 Japan had an egregious security breach, that Grubhub story you heard is more nuanced than you may expect, Grubhub overall is just the same conversation as Amazon is, and the kids are falling for 90s-era phishing attacks. Rym and Emily have launched a spinoff show on Disney theatrical animation!

Duration:01:10:38

GeekNights 20190626 - Bee and PuppyCat: Season 1

6/26/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the complete season one of Bee and PuppyCat. We talked about the first part of the season back in 2014, and we still regularly quote the pilot. Season two is still on the way! In the news, Vertigo comics is no more, Neon Genesis Evangelion is on Netflix with a few problems, we have an idea of what the canceled Mouse Guard movie could have been, and the Netflix Watership Down is... OK.

Duration:00:58:15

GeekNights 20190624 - Computer Mice

6/24/2019
More
Tonight on GeekNights, we reconsider a topic we talked about back in 2007 and explore the humble computer mouse. In the news, a big chunk of the Internet was down this morning, surveillance capitalism wants to make your life a living hell, and GeekNights endorses Tiffany Cabán for Queens district attorney in the Democratic primary tomorrow. (Go vote on June 25th). Rym and Emily have started a side-show exploring Disney theatrical animation, live now for GeekNights Patreon Patrons and going...
