Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Egon Spengler & the Toy Story Theory Episode includes some fun Ghostbuster references in honor of Harold Ramis. They also talk Star Wars vs Star Trek, a theory about Andy’s mom in the Toy Story films, and some recent news and rumors for television and movies. Fun discussion as always.

Bill, Ted & Ahsoka’s Excellent Adventures Episode combines Star Wars: The Clone Wars with Bill & Ted. If you haven’t watched TCW Season 6 yet, don’t worry, they don’t dive into any of it so there’s no spoilers, but they do talk about the show. They also talk about Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the possibility of a third film, and the movie’s 25th anniversary. And speaking of 25th anniversaries, they cover what other geeky films are celebrating their 25th this year. Plus they talk GothamTransformers 4 and present their geek awards for 2013.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #14 features special guest Tha Mike Pilot (from Full of Sith podcast) and a very excellent discussion on the most iconic Star Wars character, Darth Vader. From the imposing figure in the black mask and the father seeing his son as a Jedi, to the young man who fell to the dark side, they cover all aspects of Anakin and Vader. Great conversation to listen to. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
