Korra-nt Affairs, Episode 1: "The Aftermath"


 This summer, Nickelodeon has been airing probably one of the finest animated programs in years in The Legend of Korra, a worthy follow-up to the beloved classic Avatar: The Last Airbender with a cast of amazingly-realized characters, thought-provoking story, and gorgeous cinematography. So what to do when faced with a show of such quality? I'm not sure but it's probably not what Bryan Carr, Steve Watts, and Nick Hurwitch did in this, the first episode of the new Geekspeak summer series "Korra-nt Affairs". Every week, join these three knuckleheads as they dissect the show, bringing you theories, commentary, and more. This week, the boys talk about "Aftermath", the seventh episode of the first season and what it means for the identity of mysterious Big Bad Amon, the romantic implications our heroine will have to deal with, and also how awesome it was when those guys fought those guys.

Geekspeak Supplemental #16: We'll Damn Sure Avenge It

 This week, long-time friend of Geekspeak Brian Swafford stops by to chat with Bryan about Marvel's superhero magnum opus The Avengers, which Bryan already reviewed for some Web site if you want to read that while you listen. Find out if this movie was worth the time, money, know what? No pretense. We basically spend 90 minutes  talking about how awesome it was and why it was so awesome. So if you like talking about awesome things, you'll like this. But make sure you only listen AFTER you've seen the movie because SPOILERS ARE PLENTIFUL AND WE BASICALLY RUIN MOST OF THE MOVIE. With that caveat out of the way, hear two guys take an overly academic approach to a movie about dudes in tights by clicking here.
