Superman is in theaters once again. This time, Henry Cavill (Immortals, The Tudors) takes up the mantle of America’s Superhero against Michael Shannon’s (Take Shelter, Boardwalk Empire) General Zod in this summer’s blockbuster, Man of Steel. Like all geeks, there were opinions that had to be shared. So, a council was formed at the RevolutionSF RevNews, including Gary MitchelBobby Nash (Earth Station One Network), Tegan Hendricks0n (Just Tegan), Shaun Rosado (Shauncastic) and myself, to address the strengths and weaknesses of the latest superhero film.

Earth Station One – Episode 156, Winter is coming to ESO

Category : Entertain Me, Featured, Geek Out, Guest Appearances, Literature, Reviews, Television

Loyal readers and listeners know I am a fan of the novels penned by George R.R. Martin, as well as the HBO television series Game of Thrones. When the Earth Station One crew put out a call for people looking to discuss this master work of fantasy, I prayed to the Old Gods and The Seven and even put in a word at the House of the Undying that they would pick yours truly. And they did!

On this episode, the ESO crew sing of ice and fire! Bobby thought this was another musical episode, so he steps away while Mike and Mike are joined by Jessa Phillips (GoodtoBeaGeek.com), Rita De La Torre (Transmissions from Atlantis), Tara (Ice and Fire Con), and listener Jon Kenoyer for a review of the novels by George R. R. Martin as well as the HBO series, Game of Thrones. We also review the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s third season. Plus, we strap the visionary filmmaker GB Hajim in The Geek Seat! All this and the usual Rants, Raves, Shout Outs and Khan Report!
