We got ourselves a stunt Patrick! Super-producer Pattycakes from The Sci-Fi Janitors joins us and pretty soon is arguing with our Patrick about whether or not J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek reboot is really a Star Trek movie. You know, like geeks do. The gist of it is that Patrick hates fun.
We spend some time talking about TV. Fringe, which started life as a monster-of-the-week show with no mythology, has ended, and Crispy and Stephen make the case for everyone going back and watching it. (It doesn’t hurt that Jasika Nicole and John Noble from Fringe are attending Dragon*Con.) Community is coming back, and rumor has it that the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode will have all the doctors in it (sadly, not true, as we found out after we recorded this episode).
In videogame news, Patrick is addicted to FTL: Faster Than Light, Crispy is excited about Double Fine’s game The Cave, and Stephen is finally playing Arkham City. Wizards of the Coast is making all of the old D&D books available as low-cost PDFs, Patrick is curious about the new Facebook graph search, and Stephen loves reading scienctific concepts explained using only the 1.000 most common words in the English language.
