We Be Geeks 194: Something Good Comes Out Of Today

This week on We Be Geeks: The entire team is back together and ready to talk geek! Something good comes out of today! Wizard World was on Julz’s radar as she attended this past weekend. While there were great things about Wizard World Pittsburgh, it sadly isn’t returning. It’s not on the list for next years shows. It still may be possible, and we are hoping so. Speaking of Wizard World, Stephen Shamus (former Chief Marketing Officer) was recently fired for obtaining autographs from the celebrities, and selling them. He is no longer with Wizard World, but one wonders how much this has hurt them. Is Jessica Jones, Daredevil, or Luke Cage a better show? We discuss this much more in depth on this show. Speaking of Netflix, Stranger Things is adding some new cast members. Still no word on when the hit show will return, but we are all waiting patiently. Pacific Rim has begun filming it’s second movie. It has hit some bumps in the road, but is on its way to us in 2018. Out 200th episode is coming up very soon, and we have some very cool prizes to one lucky winner. Stay tuned for your chance to win.

Flash may be returning a character to the show. Patty Spivot may be returning for the third season. although it id not totally confirmed yet, it is a possibility. Speaking of TV shows, Gotham is also on our  radar. They supposedly are aging Poison Ivy to make it easier for them to make her more of a seductress. Not entirely sure that they needed to do this to the show, but we will see how it plays out. Profiles in History is having a Hunger Games auction part 2. There are many auction highlights, including:  Katniss Everdeen Victory Tour ensemble, combat wetsuits, Peeta interview suit, and much much more. The auction is available to anyone worldwide.
