Binary System Podcast’s Very Geeky Christmas

“All right, everybody, what do we all want to find under the Christmas tree?”

“MONEY!”

“Okay, yes, that would be nice, but what ELSE do we want?”

“BOOZE?”

“Oh for crying out loud…GEEKY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.”

In the spirit of a very sci-fi/fantasy/horror Christmas, here’s the BSP team’s recommendations for the perfect presents for the fangirl/fanguy in your life.

Review – DC Rebirth Holiday Special

If you need a break from all the gloom and bad feelings going around lately, the Rebirth Holiday Special is the way to do it. I liked some of the stories more than others, but I enjoyed all of them, and while some of them tended to beat you over the head with tidings of comfort and joy, they mostly did it with nudges and winks.

Review and Preview: Transformers Holiday Special

If you’re looking for one of those sappy, cheesy, awkward holiday specials, this is not that book. If you’re looking for serious, gut-wrenching, intense drama…this is also not that book.

The Transformers Holiday Special is ridiculously fun. It pokes fun at itself and any other holiday trope it can reach, but the writing and artwork are some of IDW’s best (not surprising considering who wrote and drew it.) Click the jump for preview pages and a review!

Not your usual Christmas stories

A very Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it from Kathryn and Elizabeth! And to everybody who doesn’t celebrate it, happy book-reading!

By this point most people have already read A Christmas Carol, or The Night Before Christmas, or any of a handful of great, classic Christmas stories. So we thought we’d list a few fantasy stories with a little bit of Christmas in them that aren’t usually thought of as Christmas books. Some of them are nice, and some are definitely naughty, so if you’re determined to read something Christmassy, you’ve got something other than The Grinch to curl up with.

Movie Issues: Jingle All the Way

The Christmas Season has arrived and here at Movie Issues HQ Leland the Grinch and his Elf Helper Spooky are getting into the the spirit with their first movie for the holidays, Jingle All the Way.  The 1996 Christmas “Classic” directed by the same man who brought you The Flintstones and previous podcast alum, Christopher Columbus, that guy who made the first two Harry Potter films.  These two cinematic “geniuses” joined forces to tell another tired tale of workaholic dad who learns that family is truly the greatest gift.  Listen in as Leland and Spooky complain about the inconsistent tone of the movie, how working dads get a bad rap, and all the other biggest movie news that’s dropped since last week!
