Episode 161: Good Grief

Welcome back everyone to your regularly scheduled week in geek.  This is one of those good o'll slow news weeks which means you, my dear friends, get a whole heaping helping of Bat and Hammer bullshitting.  But don't fret, it's the good kind of bs.  With so little happening with in the nerd world (that we were paying attention to at least) we talk about the future of gaming and what we want from it and what we expect.  We also talk about this weeks streaming review and go over our podquestion.

Last week's streaming review was The Peanuts Movie.  And I gotta say... what a disappointment it was.  I heard so much love for this movie that I was expecting a pretty fun romp, maybe even something that would sell me on the Peanuts for once.  But what I was left with was a rather bland tale with pretty minimal humor.  Bat said that he wished that they had taken out the Red Barron parts, stating that it detracted from the stronger main story.  But I have to disagree with him, I was just bored.  That isn't to say it's a horrible movie, just maybe not my type of movie. Then again we both are vocal about not being big Peanuts...nuts?  We both gave this one a 2/5, thinking you could better spend your time else where and avoid the not so good grief. 

Next week's streaming review is going to take us on a little bit of an adventure as we start our first Streaming Series review with Stranger Things. This little Netflix original series has been getting a hell of a lot of buzz and the look and feel of the show seems to borrow heavily from the 80's nostalgia we we so dearly love.  We're starting with just episode 1 but may try to fit in 2 episodes per a podcast if we can swing it.  If you want to watch along then make sure to join on in!

For next week's Podquestion I want to know if you could turn any comic strip(not comic book) into a movie which one would you choose?
