The Geekbox: Episode 101

No Geekboxies this week (mainly because I was dumb and unwittingly scheduled it on a holiday, which didn’t work out so great attendance-wise), but we’ve got a lot of good stuff to talk about. Side note: If you aren’t watching Being Human, you should — it’s awesome. More on the first episode next week!

  1. I merely wanted to inform you how much we appreciate every little thing you’ve contributed to help improve lives of people in this subject matter. Through the articles, we have gone out of just an inexperienced to a pro in the area. It’s truly a tribute to your efforts. Thanks

    Karen’s my #1 reason for listening to this podcast. She’s funny, enjoyably opinionated and, for all I know, highly Asian as well.

    People who write hate mail to people they don’t know personally are socially broken. Save that anger for the people you love or the guy who cuts you off in traffic.

  3. Marty says:

    The show is always much better whenever Alice and Justin aren’t on. I don’t think they contribute much to the chemistry or humour of the show.

    You guys got a shout out from Rebel FM this week. To paraphrase:

    Tyler: Hey do they still make that Geekbox?
    Arthur: Yes, they do.
    Tyler: Hey y’all should listen to that.
    Arthur: No, you shouldn’t.

    There was an American version of Fawlty Towers and it was as horrible as you would expect.

    Karen should feel kind of proud that her English is so good that some people don’t believe she lived the first 15 years of her life in Taiwan, but those people also need to stick their heads in the oven.

    Oh look, a douchebag from the forums strikes.

    Sorry guy – you can have it both ways. You don’t get to make decisions/judgement calls on other people’s claims to their ethnicity.

  8. sdf says:

    Karen described herself as being detached from her days in Taiwan just last week. She seems to reject everything non-Anglo in her daily life, her forum tag is “white dudes only”. Now she’s a blue blood Taiwanese. Can’t have it both ways.

    yeah Derpington, same thoughts here. Karen is cool in general, but sometimes she is an ‘abortion’… hahahaha…just kiding, of course

    good show guys. greeting from brazil

  10. Derpington says:

    Why does Karen make such a big deal about Ryan’s disgust for Rocky Horror? She even said she hated him for his opinion. (Jokingly, I’m sure.)

    Just a few minutes earlier Karen was saying she hated Ricky Gervais on the Golden Globes and thought Larry David’s humor was lame.

    Chill out.. diff’rent strokes.

    I so Being Human last night, it is possible the greatest show to ever be on syfy

    I knew it – Ryan’s so full of it.
