Issue 278 – Aaron Outnumbered

Greetings Programs. In this issue, Aaron runs the board while special co-hosts The Lovely Jenn and Beanerita take the show and run with it. But first, Aaron has some comments on the 2014 New York Comic Con. Then, Jenn talks about Crafty Fail and the potential of a Tetris film. Finally, Aaron and Bean fall down the Game of Thrones spoilers and what the heck is happening between the books and show. After listening, be sure to check out Drunk Game of Thrones for even deeper reviews of the HBO show. All that, and the berating of Scott Dally.

    Okay, so I went back and watched the Trailer #1 for the Dark Knight Rises and the rewatched the AoU Trailer and you are right, they are very similar… in that they are both movie trailers. But accusing them of “straight up cribbing” seems to me to be yet another tragic example of your ongoing Whedon-Tourettes.

    I tell ya, I was unable to see the Avengers movie for a long time. Reasons. Your spoiler free reviews and, in particular, spoiler warnings were great.

    Your spoiler-full movie reviews are really fun to listen to. So much so that a year after you posted spoiler-full reviews of the Avengers I went back, downloaded them and enjoyed them.

    I have never had to discontinue listening mid-episode for fear of unannounced spoilers – until this episode.

    While I read books, I’ve mostly moved away from reading fantasy. For most other known fantasy TV series/movie I’ve read the books or know the plot before it aired. But not Game of Thrones.

    Decided this time, given HBO’s rep, to see what they’d make of it. And BAM they made of it stuff better than found in Volstagg’s beard after an all-nighter.

    Which is all to say that I intend to watch GoT on HBO first and may never read the books and I don’t want that experienced spoiled by your show.

    I know you get it. I know. However, at least one of your guest hosts needs her eyes opened. She seemed to hold in contempt people who chose not to experience GoT as she does. There are many ways to enjoy geek culture with out preying on geek culture: “Dumbledore dies on page 596! HAHAHA!”

    Thanks for hundreds of otherwise great shows.

    Hey Ron. Sorry, we at least tried to warn folks about the spoilers. We don’t really delve into things that much, mainly commenting on the set pictures that hit the Internet almost 2 weeks ago now. And remember, what we say on the show is for entertainment. No one every truly is angry at people for not reading the books, so no real need to “eyes opening”, at least not in this case. As always, thanks for listening. We will always try and keep the show spoiler free, but sometimes, as fans ourselves, we want to cut loose. Hope to see you this week, where we’ll be back to our usual crazy.
