Alice Liang joins the Geekbox since Karen is out this week and kicks things off by asking Higgins about Nick Simmons’ (son of Gene Simmons) blatant plagiarism of manga like “Bleach” in his personal comic book series, “Incarnate”. Things move on to the weekly discussion of Lost, covering last week’s Jack-centric episode “The Lighthouse”. Again, if you have some catching up to do on the series, check out the spoiler timestamps at the bottom of this post.
Video games come up next, with some discussion of the ApocalyPS3 (®), spearheaded one of Ryan’s conspiracy theories which quickly gets disproved by a Sony press release. The Geekbox forums are hosting an achievement competition (which I happen to be participating in), which unfortunately ends at the end of March and thus doesn’t allow for playthroughs of the March 31 release of Mega Man 10 on XBLA. Ryan has been playing the latest retro-inspired Capcom game and the conversation devolves into making fun of the game’s ridiculously named antagonists.
Burn Notice, Smallville, and a short listener mail segment wrap up a pretty good episode of The Geekbox.
