Summer Rewind – The Lazy Geeks Podcast #7: To The Gaming Grid

 

We have reached the halfway point of the Lazy Geeks’ Summer Rewind! This was one of the few shows that had complete shownotes. What does that mean? It means that many times Adam never prepared his shownotes until after the show. This was our show before Thanksgiving in 2010. So we have some recommendations for gifts. As well as reactions to Green Lantern and Cowboys and Aliens. So check it out!

 

Why is this news?

  1. The Engagement of Prince William. Why is this news? Because girls are heartbroken because now they won’t have a chance to be a real-life princess. Plus, he’s the son of Princess Diana.
  2. Doctor Who Christmas Special airing on Christmas. Why is this news? Because, before, the only way to see it around Christmas was to either live in the UK or find it online.
