Looking back and looking forward! Cool shows on the schedule. Top performing Shane Plays shows, blog posts and YouTube videos for 2018. A legit peace overture from Muffin? How are the current geeky movies in theaters doing by box office and critics? Geek news including a comic book robbery that impacts charity. Was Loki mind controlled in the first Avengers movie? The Christmas Pickle epilogue. Bonus: a skit about giant spiders from Morrus’ Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk podcast. Plus all the usual nonsense and tomfoolery!
