Geeks on Doctor Who : Season 6 : The Impossible Astronaut

This week we experience the season premier of Doctor Who, The Impossible Astronaut! Janet is still off in London, so we bring in Tom Merritt to help us wrap our heads around the craziness that ensues straight out of the gate!

We discuss the death of the Doctor, and whether thre was any real plot element there, Rory as a main character, River and the changes she’s making, and of course Amy with the bun in the oven.

We also geek out over aliens, Mark Shephard ( who Stephen keeps calling Matt Shephard ) and his older counterpart with the gasoline, and ponder why the writers seem to love creepy children.

So sit back, enjoy the ride and until next week .. don’t blink!

Geeks on Drinking : Lambics

This week we get into, what some people consider, a middle ground between beer & wine, the Lambic style of beer.

We talk about where Lambic’s come from, both regionally and historically, and some of the differences between Lambics that are brewed now, versus “back in the day”.

We talk appropriate glassware, and what you need for a Lambic, all while we enjoy a wonderful 2009 Cantillon Classic, a Kriek and a Rose de Gambrina.

So pop the cork of your favorite Lambic and until next week, now what you drink.

Geeks on Doctor Who : The Companions and Goodbye to Sarah Jane

Early Tuesday morning, April 19, 2011, whovian fans were saddened to hear that Elisabeth Sladen lost her battle with cancer, and passed away. We wanted to take an episode and pay homage not only to Elisabeth Salden and Sarah Jane Smith but to all of the companions of the Doctor. Well, at least the Companions that we can remember. ;)

Janet is in France, so we have a special guest joining us all the way from Australia, David Bryden. You can follow David on twitter over at twitter.com/DaveBinM .

This Saturday we will be watching the premier of Season 6, and immediately following will be recording, and possibly live streaming, an episode of Pandoricast with a very special guest Tom Merritt .. whom you can also follow on twitter over at twitter.com/acedtect

Until next week, Don’t Blink!

Sarah Jane Smith: No. The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love. Whether it’s a world, or a relationship… Everything has its time. And everything ends.

Goodbye and Godspeed Elisabeth Sladen, we will all miss you!

Geeks on Doctor Who : Torchwood

This week, while we wait for Season 6 to start, we talk Torchwood! We have a habit of divurging into Torchwood when talking Doctor Who anyway so we thought why not devote a whole show to it..

Since we have 3 full seasons to cover this show gets a little long .. but we have a blast discussing the parts we loved, and the parts we hate.

Stephen apparently is in love with naked Rhys, Janet misses Tosh but was not as heartbroken by her death as we were, and Aric decides, post season 3, that he now hates Captain Jack and that he is not the person for the world to turn too in time of crisis.

So join us in a bit of Torchwood talk, and until next week, don’t blink!

Geeks on Doctor Who : Army of Ghosts & Doomsday and a farewell to Rose

This week, Vinita joins us to complete the final two heart wrenching episodes of Season 2 .. Army of Ghosts and Doomsday, and say goodbye to Rose.

We toss out some pretty wild speculation about story arcs going from here to season 5, doctors in multiple universes and talk about how concepts in Sci-Fi routinely cross streams.

We determine that Aric is cold and dead inside, that Jackie is better with alternate universe Pete, and the time spent on the other side has done wonders for Mickie.

We continue to be excited for the premier of Season 6, and decide that next week we may just spend sometime talking about Torchwood while we wait.

Enjoy and until next week, Don’t Blink!

Geeks on Drinking : Absinthe

This week, we play a little joke on Bill, and then dive into Absinthe. We discuss the history of Absinthe, dispel some of the myth surrounding this mystical beverage, and greet the green fairies who bless this beverage.

We also talk about how it was banned, and why they originally decided to ban it.

Bill teaches us how to make an Absinthe beverage, the French method as well as the Czech method of making this drink.

So find a comfy chair, cook up some Absinthe, and prepare to converse with green fairies.

Know what you drink!
