This week on the Educating [Geeks] drinking game podcast geek hosts Andrea, Cassie and Krissy create rules for the first two seasons of the SyFy original series Eurkea. Krissy starts things off with a mini game and everyone has something to say about Fargo.
Welcome to Geek [Supplies] — where friends help friends save the world from misguided, well-intentioned geniuses whose inventions almost destroy the planet (every week). Phew – I think that deserves a beer.
This week on Educating [Geeks] Andrea, Cassie and Krissy discuss seasons 1 & 2 of the SyFy series Eureka. The discussion covers how wacky time paradox stores can be so confusing, emotional vs logical decision making, how Sara in the bathroom freaks everyone out and Krissy creates the theme song for Eureka V2.0.
I fell in love with Avatar at the most unexpected moment, and that was when I was packing up my house in Flagstaff to move down to Phoenix. I wanted some noise in the background while I packed, so I turned on Nickelodeon. As I walked back and forth in front of the TV, I began to notice martial arts action happening on the screen, and as I listened, it piqued my interest. Before long I was watching in earnest. Nickelodeon was running a marathon of the show and my packing was abandoned entirely as I was sucked into the show.
I learned the show grabbing my attention was called “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” which originally ran from 2005 to 2008 on Nickelodeon for three seasons. As part of the marathon, they had “bubbles” of additional information display on the screen, such as a brief snippet of character history, or information on production, or identifying a creator’s favorite scene. It made the experience so much more engrossing. I was hooked.
Later, as my son got older and TV watching became a part of our routine, I was happy to find that the show was still being aired in re-runs. I don’t know about other parents out there, but I am always happy to find something that both my kid and I can enjoy, and Avatar fits the bill. If I am honest, I think I like Avatar even more than my son does. Why?
The naked butt love continues this week on the Educating [Geeks] Drinking Game when Bri, Char, Megan and Sara continue their 12 Monkeys discussion. The ladies try to figure out how they made Brad Pitt’s eye look so weird and wonder what kind of concoction they used to create Bruce Willis’ drool. They lament the loss of Nimbus Brewing Company while coming up with enough signature cocktails to inebriate a simian army.
