Week in Geek, episode 10, recorded 10/26/17. News since last recording, including: Punisher versus Justice League; Thor: Ragnarok and the future of Thor; contenders for worst movie of the year; more is coming from the Dark Tower; Pandemic Legacy Season 2; quick TV show news including Star Trek Discovery, Doctor Who, and Daredevil; and potential movies coming up including X-23 and Deathstroke. Oh, and libraries are not dead.
This week we had a new (to us) YouTube channel recommended to us. The channel is ScrewAttack! and the show is Death Battle. In Death Battle, they pit two fictional characters who are fairly similar to each other against each other. It’s easy to imagine this being done poorly, but they take their time, do their research, and give the characters all their best chances to win.
I am impressed with how faithfully they represent the characters, and really consider them. The first one we watched was Toth, from Avatar: The Last Airbender, versus Gaara, the overpowered sand ninja from Naruto. Evenly matched and powered characters, and they really gave them each a lot of thought. Then, after exploring each character and their strengths and weaknesses, they animate a battle between them, with voice acting and all. Quality Internet video! Check out the battle:
One more video after the jump! We haven’t watched too many yet – they’re longer than we expected! We’re certainly not going to watch all of them, but for all the characters we know? Heck yeah.
