It's the first post-October episode. Instead of focusing on a month of thanks, it's just business as usual.
Week in Geek: Andrew plays some more Civilization: Beyond Earth and also finally gets his mitts on a copy of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS. Dan, on the other hand, talks about the new album from his newest favorite band, Dawnbringer, called Night of the Hammer. \m/
30 Years of Busting Ghosts: As children of the '80s, Dan and Andrew decide that this is as good a time as any to discuss why Ghostbusters is still so amazing.
Ladies Second?: Speaking of Ghostbusters, with the recent announcement of a likely all-female reboot of Ghostbusters––as well as the troubled all-female Expendables spinoff, The Expendabelles––Andrew and Dan discuss this very interesting version of the reboot––recasting nerdy franchises with a completely female cast. They discuss the pros and cons and the possibilities as well as any pitfalls that could come with such decisions.
The Master and The Mistress: As Series 8 of Doctor Who draws to a close, Dan and Andrew discuss one of the Doctor's most famous and notorious adversaries––The Master! Consider this discussion a primer for all things Master, just in case you need it.
Question of the Geek:
Who is your favorite villain, in any medium?
