Big Bang Theory and Gotham on Assembly of Geeks

This week’s Assembly of Geeks episode is posted. From the show notes:


The new fall TV season is almost here and we’re getting excited!  This week, the spotlight is on an old favorite and a new geek TV show!

When it comes to the success of The Big Bang Theory, it’s amazing just how many different people love the show. However, not everyone in the geek community is a fan.  We examine why we love the show & some of the reasons others dislike it.

Gotham is bringing us a unique Batman TV series and we’re ready to check it out.  John and Derek from The Gotham TV Podcast join us to talk about the excitement and expectations leading up to the premiere.

Other geek topics discussed today include reactions tothe new BatmobilePeggy Carter’s appearance on Agents of S.H.I.E.D., Harry Potter movies Fangirl’s upcoming review of Star Wars Rebels and Jeremiah Stewart of Bombad Radio reports back from Salt Lake City Comic Con.

Plus, GANNIN tries to turn today’s Geek Assembly meeting into a sitcom.

You can also subscribe to the show on iTunes.
