logoSorry it’ been a bit long between episodes but Jason and I both had to fly out of the country this past week so we could attend the Kanye/Kim wedding.   Well, I was attending, Jason was heading up the catering.   But a good time was had by all, and no expense was spared for this third sham wedding for Kim Kardasian and her baby daddy!   Actually, the delay was technical difficulties that we should have worked out now and we’ll be back on track.

We recorded this episode over a week ago, but are just now able to deliver it.  There was a LOT of geek news to cover that week, that might seem like old news now, but I like to think our perspective on it will all be a fresh take…   I don’t know of that’s true at all, but I like to think that.

Enough of reading this, let’s get to the meat of the podcast!

Welcome back everyone.  As we mention in the intro this is another episode of GSi after-dark: Evening Edition.   Listen close to your instructions on how to listen to this episode and the dress code.

At long last I have seen the new Captain America movie so that we can discuss it on the show.  If you haven’t seen it yet, I don’t want to be the one that spoils anything, so run out and see it really quick while it’s still in theaters and then come back and listen.


In this episode we discuss:

  • Daniel  re-watched ‘Batman Returns‘ and ‘Batman Forever‘ the other day for the first time in MANY years.

  • Simpsons Lego minifigure wave is out now
  • Jason picked up some new toy goodies.
  • Why do none of Hasbro’s 6″ Marvel Movie figures look like the actors anymore?  Are they even still trying for accurate likenesses?

logoWith episode 100 behind us we move on to episode 101, which I consider to be “well into our 100′s.”     Thanks everyone for all the great feedback on Episode 100.   We enjoyed reading all of the comments.

Now we hope to back on a more regular schedule.   By the time you read this and hear this episode we already have the next one in the can so look for it this time next week.   It’s mostly been the news of Letterman retiring next year that has thrown us off our game.   I’ve just found it so hard to get out of bed in the mornings since the announcement.   But I must soldier on.   It’s what Dave would want.

Everyone remember to turn your phone onto vibrate before listening to this episode.

In this episode we discuss:

All that and more in Episode 101!
