On this week’s episode of Entertainment Geekly — our new podcast devoted to all things science fiction, fantasy, and generally weird in an awesome way — Jeff Jensen and I tackle a couple of fantasy-themed projects, including the return of HBO’s Game of Thrones and the debut of Brian K. Vaughan’s new comic series, Saga.
There’s also a brief tangent on the release of the hotly unanticipated remake-sequel Wrath of the Titans, followed by a lengthy conversation about The Hunger Games. Having not read the books, Jeff enjoyed the movie and thinks it could be a game changer for Hollywood. I was a fan of the books — and a wanna-be philosophy major — so I think the film missed the whole point Suzanne Collins was trying to make. Bloodshed ensues. Actually, no, we just talk out our differences. Clearly, Jeff and I both play Paragon in Mass Effect, and if you understand what that means, you’re a total nerd and my soulmate. Listen below!
Be sure to let us know your own thoughts in the comments. We’ll see you back here next week!
