Fox announced a limited series of ” The X-Files” We all reminisce our fondest memories of the show’s original run.

Seen:

Patrick watches the independent film “Spring” and it‘s terrifying. Patrick may give up on “Agents of SHIELD” if season 2 doesn’t pay off big time.

Christopher finishes season 3 of “House of Cards” and watches “John Wick”,  it’s just a very simple, well made revenge flick, immensely satisfying.

Read:

Andrew and Christopher both loving “Batman:Eternal”. The last panel of issue 51 was bonkers awesome.

Andrew read “Invincible #118” and encourages all to pick up the issue, it’s the perfect place to jump in. And just 25 cents!

Patrick finishes “A Dance with Dragons“. He freaks the F*ck out about the ending! And he has started “Leviathan Wakes” on Chris’s recommendation.

Played:

Christopher continues “Ori and the Blind Forest” The game is hard as hell and strikingly beautiful.

Andrew plays “Destiny” some more. He is working his first Exotic Weapon Bounty.

Patrick pulls an “Andrew” and has nothing to report. Andrew is pissed at the reference.

“Star Wars: Rogue One” news!  We tell you what we know, which isn’t much, admittedly.

Episode Thirty:”I have been, and always shall be, your friend”

SIZE

Episode 30 – “I have been, and always shall be, your friend.”
recorded March 1, 2015
We discuss the passing of Leonard Nimoy, a great artist and cultural icon.
We examine his legacy in our lives and the impact of his work.

Seen
Christopher continues to re-watch “Stargate SG1” with his wife, Susan.  He also watched “Batman/Superman: Public Enemies”, the animated DC feature.  He is surprised with how entertaining it is.
Andrew re-watches “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”.  All agree it holds up very nicely and Nimoy’s performance is perfect.
Patrick and Andrew finish season 1 of “Agent Carter” and wish it had finished a little bigger and bolder.
Read
Christopher is current with “Batman Eternal”, “Thor”, and has started “Star Wars: Darth Vader” “Vader” might be the best of the newly launched Marvel Star Wars comics.

Andrew is also current with “Batman Eternal”. His reading of “Dune” has slowed due to technical issues. He plans to follow “Dune” with “The Martian” and then give “Master and Commander” another try.
Patrick is 7 hours in the 48,920 hours of “A Dance with Dragons”. He is already in love, far and away better than “A Feast for Crows”.

Played
Christopher has been grinding on “Destiny”, leveling a Warlock. He plays “Evolve” and continues to be bad at it.  He had downloaded “Clash of Clans” and it is a welcome diversion.
Andrew plays “Destiny” with Christopher just today.  He reports on Daily Heroic Story “The Wakening”. He will start a Hunter and begin leveling in the near future.
Patrick-attempted to play “Destiny” but encountered major connectivity issues.  He downloaded the mobile game “Oregon Trail: American Settler”. It is a sequel of sorts to the game we all loved as kids. He feels a kinship to it as he himself is a settler of Oregon.
Special Report: Christopher’s daughter Kristin reports on Supernatural-Con, she fan-girls.  She reports on the “specialty convention experience”.

Trivia:

Which Harry Potter novel has sold the most copies, and how many?

The Boys are surprised with the correct answers.
