Ten episodes ago (literally - Episode 151) we were challenged by our friends Jiaming Liou and Albert Patrick to participate in the /Film Summer Movie Wager. Collectively we each made our predictions of what would be the top ten movies, in their exact order, at the domestic box office from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Eventually our friend Tyler McPhail from The Grand Geek Gathering network joined us and we played a game of fantasy movie box office.
Now all three join Derek and Myke to assess the damage. We all comment on our biggest disappointments, what movies we personally loved regardless, how Pikachu pulled an unfortunate shocker, and how John Wick blasted his way through to the top.
Catch Albert on his many podcasts at whowhatwhereswhy.com including his show with Jiaming: Spoilers, Pleeze.

Now that our time with our favorite Losers seems to be done, we had to bring back our most read, hilarious and insightful friend of the show Dana Keels to talk about our collective return to Derry in Stephen King's IT Chapter 2. Dana takes us through the various changes in the book, for better or for worse, and what his own thoughts about the blockbuster horror sequel. Derek and Myke supplement their own God Hates Geeks written review and expand on how much they loved the performances, directing, while also going into more of their nit picks of the movie. We go into full spoilers off the bat, so if you haven't seen the movies stay away from this episode like a sewer drain on a rainy day.
Now that Labor Day has come and gone it's time to gear up for a new season of non-capes and tights movies and we could think of no one better to join us than past guest, friend of show, and film school alum JL Caraballo. We get into the spattering of movies that he's the most excited for including the new IT that comes out this weekend, Tigers Are Not Afraid, and more! Then Derek and Myke spare JL their own geekery and go over the rest of the movies that they're excited for up until Thanksgiving Day weekend.

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and God Hate's Geek's own Travis Moody.
The fall season has finally begun and we've got the games to prove it. First we get into all the news coming from this year's Gamescom and PAX, because we live in a world where there's a video game conference almost every other week. We then follow up with an update on Moody's time with Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and Myke's own Blue Lions run since getting the game right after recording the last episode. Then we get on another level, psychically, as we get into Astral Chain and the Astral Plane of Remedy's Control.
