Best of the Rest 2016
In this episode:
- Welcome to the Season 1 finale of the
Geek to Geek Podcast. It has been one heck of a year, and we could
not have done it without you fine folks backing us at every turn.
We did not expect the kind of response we’ve had to the cast, but
we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for listening to us
ramble about geekery and for being our friends (and not just
internet friends, either! Real friends!). Here’s to an amazing
2017, and Season 2 picks up next week! Keep listening and tell your
- Much like last week, we wanted to do
our Best of 2016 list. Whereas we focused on video games last time,
this week, we’re looking at pretty much everything else. From
movies to books to music to podcasts to YouTube videos, we break
down our top picks of the year so you can start 2017 off
- Once again, we look at the few
letdowns we had this year. This isn’t a negative podcast, so we
don’t dwell on it. Beej was disappointed in Batman v Superman. It
was a terrible movie that he knew was going to be terrible, but
despite his low expectations, it was even worse than that. Void
didn’t have much. So let’s get on to the awesome stuff, shall
- We did a huge list of honorable
mentions because we tend to sample a lot of stuff and try to
experience as much cool things as we can possibly fit into our
lives (hence the Weekly Geekery segment in each episode). A lot of
our honorable mentions match up, including fantastic Netflix
originals, superhero shows and comics, as well as some movies that
we rank differently but still considered some of the best things
that happened in 2016.
- And then there are our Top 6 picks of
the year, ranked in order of Supercoolitude (is that a word? It is
now). What’s fun about these is how different they are. It really
shows the different perspectives that we approach media and what we
consider worthwhile (you can also see this in our Star Wars: Rogue
One discussion a few weeks back). We very much agree that all of
our Top 6 are amazing choices, but the value we place on each entry
is decidedly different. We think you guys will enjoy the discussion
we have about each.
- Beej - Grabbed an iPhone 7 Plus
because Verizon had a deal and has finally realized how cool mobile
gaming can be if you have a device that’s worth gaming on.
- Void - Snagged himself an NES Classic
because he’s one lucky son-of-a-gun. His kids are enjoying it
almost as much as he is, and that’s staying a lot!
