The Assembly of Geeks Podcast Network

Salt Lake fought "The Con" and "The Con" won.  So, what happens now?  If San Diego trademarked "Comic-Con", how should other conventions respond?  We'll discuss.  We'll also talk about the prospects of a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie and who might star in it.  Also, we'll react to Wolverine heading to podcastland and Jessica Jones is back in March.  The show starts with Christmas present bribes and ends with The Force Awakens trivia questions.  That makes for a happy holiday episode full of toilet motivational, wiener cooking, time-turning fun with a dose of Kanjiklub and beasts.

Even though Stranger Things takes place in the 1980s, the success of the series is due to its broad appeal.  In this episode, we take a closer look at how the lives and relationships of the characters relate to real life.  Find out how Dr. Scarlet connects with Eleven and her struggles.  We'll discuss what might be happening to Will as he deals with flashbacks and episodes (PTSD? The Anniversary Effect?).  We'll take a close look at the relationship Max has with her step brother, Hopper has with Eleven and Eleven has with Dr. Brenner.  How could she remain attached to a man who tortured her?  Is it Stockholm Syndrome?  We'll also attempt to figure out what psychological representations could be found in The Upside Down.  Finally, we'll talk about what the series shows us about being a friend and a hero.

Justice League is out, and we finally get to see who made the best Rotten Tomatoes prediction.  However, was the final result an injustice to The Justice League?  What does this all mean for the future of the DCEU?  What should happen next?  We'll discuss.
