We made it folks – 2017 is finally over and while it was a mess of a year, there were some real bright spots in Geek Media. Genre entertainment continues to deliver amazing content even in this darkest of timelines, so we’re here to tell you what we loved most in 2017 and recap of our year long reading challenge.
The Young Podawans’ Harry Potter vs Dark Tower Reading Challenge continues! This week we chat about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! For the sake of continuity (and because they are awesome) – be sure to check out the HP & DT Books 1-3 episode and the Wizard & Glass episode before venturing further!
It’s been over two years since Marvel’s Netflix series began. There’s been some highs, some lows, and some really, really yellow-glowy fisty lows, but now it’s come to this – The Defenders! After two years, five stand alone series, and four new heroes, did it all pay off in the end?
Much like the road leading here, there were many ups and downs in The Defenders, and we’re chatting about all of them. And much like the Korra comic we discussed last episode, it’s a bit of missed opportunity. One thing’s for certain though:
Way too many years in the making, the Wonder Woman movie is finally here, and it’s smashing box office records and both fan and critical exceptions. You don’t need a Lasso of Truth for us to confess we loved this movie – even though there are some problematic elements we discuss as well.
Plus more pronunciation arguments, but somehow we don’t debate whether it’s Gal or Jal Gadot… or Jadot.
Finally it’s our long awaited Steven Universe Season 2 episode! We get all the Peridot Feels, all the Peridot Giggles and every beautiful emotion in between! So strap on your paint can boots and join us for another Gem-tacular episode!
Hello friends! The Young Podawans are back with another super fantastic episode! Not only are we chatting about the brilliant new TV series LEGION, but we’re also geeking out about the Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer. And you know by now that we kinda freak out about anything new Star Wars related. Plus we talk about buying worms over the Internet.
The Young Podawans – Come for the geekery, stay for the worms.
We’ve got a wonderful new episode for you this week – something actually fun and upbeat instead of the usual grim shows/books/movies we chat about. We’ve talked about watching a new anime for some time, and that time has finally come! So pull up a plush couch, gather round the fawning young women and sparkly-eyed young men and enjoy!
