Episode 49 – Starting a Gen

On this fortnight’s excursion into the world of Geek, Gen Prock is sitting in for Nick (as his Skype just absolutely refused to connect tonight). We discuss the cancellation of Tron 3, the announcement of Fallout 4, the possible remakes of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Big Trouble in Little China, as well as Guardians of the Galaxy 2 getting a script.
