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.

Geek/CounterGeek – #39: USS Enterprise vs. Millennium Falcon

Keith is impressed with Jessica Jones on Netflix, but Elliott wishes they had been a little more faithful to the comic books.

Elliott is getting caught up on Star Wars Rebels and wonders if Ezra is being brought along a little too quickly. Keith meanwhile wonders how they are going to tie Ezra and Kanan into the existing universe, of if they are both basically doomed.

Meanwhile, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s show on NatGeo set off a firestorm of Internet Fanboy controversy, when he told a viewer that the USS Enterprise would clearly win in a fight with the Millennium Falcon. Keith agrees, and while Elliott concedes that’s probably true in a fight, he believes the Falcon is superior in other ways.
