Geek/CounterGeek – #44: Remembering Alan Rickman

Netflix has announced that Jessica Jones will be returning for a second season. Keith is decidedly more happy about this news than Elliott.

A teenage Princess Leia will be making an appearance on the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Plus, there are rumors out there that James Earl Jones will be playing the voice of Darth Vader again, this time in the spinoff movie Rogue One.

Plus, Alan Rickman died suddenly this week at the age of 69. Rickman had been battling cancer, but much like David Bowie, who also died this week, he had kept the battle out of the public eye. Elliott and Keith talked about the pretty monumental impact that Rickman has had on pop culture in the past twenty-plus years.

Each week Keith Conrad and Chicago’s Top Geek Elliott Serrano debate a controversial topic in contemporary geekery: Kirk vs. Picard? Was Douglas Quaid dreaming in Total Recall? No topic is off limits.

Geek/CounterGeek – #11: In Defense Of The Threequel

Fresh off of his trip to California for Star Wars Celebration, Elliott Serrano shared his experience and also his reaction to the new teaser trailer for The Force Awakens.

C2E2 landed in Chicago over the weekend, so Elliott is also taking one for the team by attending a second convention in as many weeks. If he doesn’t end up with Con Crud, it will be a miracle.

In other geek-related news, Netflix has announced that DareDevil will be returning for a second season. Skinner will be returning to The X-Files. Plus, we may have a title for the third installment of the Star Trek re-boot. Elliott has voiced his disappointed in Star Trek Into Darkness many times, so he isn’t optimistic for the third movie in the new series. But Keith Conrad does believe there is reason for optimism.

Geek/CounterGeek – #9: Will Jurassic World be “70’s era sexist”?

Daredevil is finally available for your binge-watching pleasure, but neither Keith nor Elliott has gotten around to watching it yet. Agents of Shield is getting its very own spin-off. Star Wars is available in digital form, but like every other re-release there has been a controversial change. Plus, the first clip from Jurassic World is online and writer, director and geek god Joss Whedon isn’t happy with what he sees. He says the clip is “70’s era sexist.”
