EPISODE 02/19/06

This week the Geeks break open the topic of alternate reality in movies, TV, books and video games. We define what differentiates alternate reality from genre pieces, such as straight Sci-fi, or fantasy, and talk about the mini-genres of Alternate Reality itself.

We also do our Movie-Mix-Up game, where we discuss creating new movies from two old movies that sound alike.

Get it all here on Geekson!
