    WEEK IN GEEK: This week, Andrew finds progress in repetition as he plays the new indie video game hit, Loop Hero, by Four Quarters. D. Bethel, on the other hand, finds a lot of quirky charm––despite the somewhat very dark places the story goes––in the new SyFy show, Resident Alien, based on the Dark Horse comic series.

Super Geeks with Commas

For All Intents is a solid geek commentary show featuring two folks who really bring their A Game to every episode. I'm actually surprised that they can pack so much content and high level commentary into each episode. What's their secret? Probably mutant superpowers of some kind. Or maybe they just have great chemistry and have a lot of interesting things to say about the world of geekery, whether it's film, games, comics, etc.

If what you want is a really solid geek show, this one should do the trick. Give it your earholes.
