Welcome to our episode for August 08, 2014!

We review Guardians of the Galaxy, Sony makes questionable decisions, and DC finally changes the BvS movie date. Then in TV news, Sharknado 2 hits theaters and sparks a sequel, Arrow and The Flash will crossover with a returning villain, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. casts Skye’s dad.

In Talk Nerdy to Me, Sesame Street nerds up with a SDCC spoof, Disney plans new Star Wars rides, a long first look at Star Wars: Rebels, plus a video summing up the Marvel movies so far.

“My Geek Confessions – Watching Bad Movies, So You Don’t Have To!”

  • Sesame Street has made some great references to different properties over the year.  But now they take a shot at nearly everything with their SDCC spoof “Numeric Con.” The only downside is that we don’t know when the segment will air and it will be in September so it won’t be as fresh as it could have been. Tell us what properties you see them spoof in the comments.
  • The day that Guardians of the Galaxy was released, Marvel released this fun video the sums up everything so far, plus some new footage (that you see in Guardians). So take a look at Marvel Phase 1 & 2 – A Look Back.
  • Still not sure I’m sold on all the new Star Wars stuff yet, but here is a 7 minute preview of Star Wars: Rebels that basically makes it look like the main character is Aladdin
