It’s the end of the year, which means it’s time for our third annual year in review episode! We discuss the best and worst 2015 had to offer when it comes to movies, new television shows, Anime, video games, comics and (of course) conventions! Find out what Nick, Trae and Pher really liked and what they really, really hated…
It’s super fun.
Also, someone finally guessed the damned book Trae’s been reading for so many months — and they went to too much trouble to do so. But we kind of love them for it, so it’s really okay.
On this bigger than ever episode, Vinnk (of FamicomDojo.tv) is sitting in for Pher. We talk about the current state of Pacific Rim 2, the cancellation of Mythbusters, Donna Noble’s Doctor Who Audio Drama return, K-9 getting his own movie, IfCon Victoria disappearing into the night, the 2015 World Fantasy Convention coming to its senses, and SXSW’s complete and total bungling of its anti-Harassment summit.
Earlier this week event organizer Bill Code collapsed and had to be taken to the hospital. Code had apparently been suffering from health issues for some time prior to the collapse, and even though a reported $84,000 (which is, y’know, a lot for a convention) of Code’s own money had been sunk into the event, the staff decided to shut down the event.
Bob Lynn confirmed on Facebook that the event had been cancelled, and that due to the non-refundable costs already sunk in, not everyone would be able to get a refund. The Facebook post announcing the cancellation has oddly been pulled, but Otaku No Culture has an archived copy.
