- #078: Reboot Rant, Into The Badlands and The Fate of The Furious

By | April 12, 2017 at 5:00 PM

It’s almost time… Geek Girl Riot is coming to the idobi Radio airwaves for a special episode tonight! After that tune in every Tuesday at midnight (aka Wednesday morning) for your dose of late-night geek madness, courtesy of our team of rioters. For now, here’s a teaser…

On this episode Geek Girl Riot’s Sherin, Kat, Meagan, Erin, and Joi talk (and by talk, we mean rant) about reboots, remakes, and reimaginings and how getting them right is harder than trying to get Thor’s hammer off the ground. Expect plenty of “hell no’s”, and also get ready to explore the wonderfulness that is “same universe, different story”. Then Sherin and Alex dive Into The Badlands to discuss the first three episodes of season 2 (no spoilers, we promise). Did we mention, we love this show? Oh, and listen out for a sweet clip from Michelle Rodriguez that’s pretty damn fast, and oh so furious… (Just so you know, we saw The Fate of the Furious, and we are so in.)

You can find everything our rioters ranted and raved about (but in case you didn’t get it from the chat, check out some of these reboots/remakes at your own risk. You have been warned.)
