All aboard the Hogwarts Express! Today we take a break from discussing geeky topics, and play an exciting round of Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit. Also new for today's episode, we have our very first guests: Lindsay Dassau (wife of David and hardcore HP fan), Raegan Dillingham (good friend and hardcore HP fan) and her fiancé Aaron (kind of a HP fan).
For our "Nerdy News Update":
-Aaron informs us that you definitely should NOT lick the new Nintendo Switch cartridges
-Raegan lets us know that she's kind of disappointed with the new Kingdom Hearts game
-Lindsay is excited for Fantastic Beasts to come out on DVD
-David talks about Facebook's plan for a new AI that will hopefully prove to be helpful

Netflix has quite the abundance of viewing material, both from their streaming services as well as their DVD mail order service. However, their original series have taken over these past few years as their bread and butter. In today's episode, we discuss how Netflix has broken the mold as a streaming service, successfully transitioned into being a provider of original content, and changed the way we consume entertainment. We also came up with our own top 5 favorite Netflix Original Series.
In addition to today's topic, we started a new segment (name pending, Nerdy News Update maybe?) where we each talk about something that's been in the news of geek-media.

A few weeks ago, Nintendo had their big unveiling of their new console called the Switch. Although it seems pretty neat on surface level, once we looked a bit closer, we noticed a few things that could present some issues with the new gaming system. In today's episode, we decided to chat about the Switch, and speculate whether the interesting new features could in fact be game-changing, or just a ploy for Nintendo to bait and "Switch" you once more.

In episode 2, we discuss the future of the Star Wars franchise. First, Andrew gives us the skinny on what's been confirmed with the future trilogy films, as well as the spin-offs. We also talk a little bit about what we liked and disliked about The Force Awakens and Rogue One. Then, we cast some predictions on what we could see in the future with episodes VIII & IX, as well as the spin-off movies that we would personally like to see materialize.

Hello everyone! Our main topic today is about original films. I thought it would an appropriate topic since this is our first episode, and originals and beginnings kind of go hand in hand. We’re living in a world where original screenplays are few and far between. Most of what we see in theaters nowadays are movies based on books/comic books, reboots, or sequels. Don’t get me wrong, we all love these movies, and there’s very little that will keep us from continuing to see these films. However, it is a sad fact that original films could be considered a dying breed. Today, we’re going to dedicate our very first episode to originals in cinema.
