Geek Actually Episode 21 – Klaatu Barada Nikto!

Geek ActuallyHosts: David McVay and Nicholas McVay with special guest Katrina Smith

Okay, first off, I know the episode is late. Sorry but all problems rectified and everything should be back to normal next week.

David and Nicholas (The Little Geek) fly solo in this episode as Mirren is busy with clients and Jacob is still away (this time in Melbourne).

David and Nicholas review Apple’s announcements at Macworld and the film “Madagascar : Escape 2 Africa” and David reviews Jim Carrey’s new film, “Yes Man”.

Katrina Smith (Stand Up Comedian, Actress, Singer, Songwriter) joins David in a pre-recorded analysis of the remake of “The Day the Earth Stood Still” that was supposed to go for 10 minutes and ended up going for 45 minutes! Interesting stuff.

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

    Love this ep. Discussion of The Day the Earth stood still was great. More of that type of format for the Showcase series would be good. Take a remake and the original and subject them to all the comparison, analysis, opinion and search for inner meaning you want without being too contrained by the clock. I’d rather eat glass than watch Keanu Reeves but now I I have to at least see this on DVD to see Gort. And Katrina Smith was fantastic, very funny, where can we find her in action on stage?

    I’d love to hear a Showcase ep on Jim Carrey. He’s done such a wide variety of films and really hasn’t recevied the recognition he probably deserves. I agree with the Little Geek, watch the Day the Grinch Stole Christmas – just genius. I’d watch a movie just to watch him act even if I was luke warm on the film itself.
