Geek Actually Episode 18 – Cheer Up Emo Girl

Hosts: David McVay and Mirren Lee (with a special appearance by Nicholas McVay)

This week, Mirren and David review the new teenage vampire film Twilight, great if you are 15, not so great if you are older. David reviews the new smash Christmas movie Four Holidays (or Four Christmases if you are American). Jacob Oberman couldn’t join us this week due to work commitments.

We also throw down a bit of tech and film news and trivia including Britney’s boobs, a Facebook virus, Dell’s new supercomputer, Kate Winslet’s nubile nazi and Fran Drescher as a senator.

David has discovered a new podcast, Porn++ (get it on itunes), what fun.

Also, getup.org.au and stopthecleanfeed.com are organising protests on the 13th of December against the internet censorship issue. We give you the dates, times and locations in your state.

Nicholas pops into the studio to say high, because… well, he was bored.

This episode carries an explicit tag due to possible, infrequent, bad language.
