The latest Geek Girl Riot heads to deep space for The Expanse S5 before getting into that huge Disney Investors Day flex…

Exploring The Expanse S5
Our Rioters are here to get you hyped for The Expanse S5, which is more fantastical space exploration. Sherin says of the season: “The Expanse is the most intricately complex show on television—full of political machinations and space booms and amazing characters from every culture. It is unstoppable watching. You just can’t get enough and S5 is the best of everything The Expanse has always been.” Catch it on Amazon Prime Video now!

Diving into the Disney Flex
Then it’s time for our Rioters to size up the elephant in the room (and no, it isn’t Dumbo). They’re talking about Disney who used their 2020 Investors Day on December 10th to flex on everyone & everything. There were so many announcements and new arrivals it felt like watching that final Endgame battle scene all over again. Sherin, Philip, and Julian buckle up and dive into the news, starting with their top Disney+ and Hulu picks.

FX + Lucasfilm + Walt Disney Studios
Up next is FX and Lucasfilm, which takes our trio on a rollercoaster of emotions. From the new Shogun series that’s got Philip’s attention to the glut of Star Wars spinoffs, our Rioters wade through it all…occasionally smashing the “don’t do this” button on some of the weirder choices. Plus they mention the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Production slate which Julian has some feelings about.

Pixar + Marvel
No Disney event would be complete without Pixar—from Domee Shi’s new film Turning Red to the new take on Lightyear, there’s plenty to unpack. Then it’s time for the big cheese: Marvel. Yup, the category we’ve all been waiting for and…well…our Rioters have mixed feelings. Could it be because there’s too much going on? Or could it be the choice of stories offered? Tune in and get ready to dissect with us…
