Assembly of Geeks: Geeks of Christmas Past, Present, and Future

Episode 14 of Assembly of Geeks celebrates the holiday spirit. From the show notes:

Today you will be visited by three geeks who want to talk about Christmas past, present and future.  You will also be visited by a voice named GANNIN who dabbles in Merry Christmas alarms and high-tech sleigh advancements.  Your day will be filled with candy canes, cookies and turrets that fire Christmas colors.  In other words…welcome to the Assembly of Geeks holiday show.
Today we look back on the fall TV season that was.  Have opinions changed about Agents of SHIELD?  Are there new show’s we’re still watching?  Meanwhile, there’s a new Terminator TV series in the works and we have to wonder if it can last.  We discuss Disney’s hint about the possibility of Star Wars on Netflix, the release date for the next Apes movie and how Batman fans can indulge in the holidays.We take time to think about our holidays of past and present and decided which was geekier.  We’ll also suggest three great geek gifts for this year’s holiday season.Finally we’ll highlight our holiday movie line-ups and Fangirl announces a new kickstarter project – Athena’s Daughters.
