Geek Actually After Show Ep104 – Ankling

Hosted by: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Shane Gregory

Welcome to the Geek Actually After Show. This un-stuctured and un-planned podcast is what what you get after we finish recording the two main shows Tech Actually and Film Actually. We basically just leave the mics on and record whatever we feel like talking about. This show gives us a chance to talk about anything that didn’t fit into the format of the main shows.

The Geek Actually After Show is recorded live on Saturdays around 2.30pm (AEST UTC+10). Go to geekactually.com/live to watch it live.

You show notes follow:

This week our ramblings included:

A discussion about ‘Ankling’, or in layman’s terms, walking out of a movie before it finishes. Listener Geek Betty sent us an interesting email with this link:
http://m.smh.com.au/entertainment/movies/super-stinkers-movies-our-critics-walked-out-on-20101014-16lf3.html
The story is all about various film critics and their opinions on leaving before the end of a film and their policies on the matter. This gets us talking about our views on the subject.

Also on the show:

After years in movie purgatory, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson returns to action, we watch the ‘Faster’ trailer.

And listener DeltaKnight sent us this great geek picture and we had to share.

    Two words in support of ankling: Mama Mia. Now there’s one hour and forty five excruciating minutes of my life I’ll never get back.
