Another Friday, another Perpetual Geek Machine podcast!
If you’re anything like us (and if you listen to this show you probably are) then there’s a good chance you’ll be heading to Boston for the 2013 edition of PAX East. Well, if that’s the case we’re here to serve up this week’s podcast early to guarantee earhole delivery before you hit the show. For those of you not going to the con… well…. early show!
Over the last couple of weeks, I have had two very different encounters with the world’s greatest animated family. With it being Hallowe’en (side note: I still spell Hallowe’en with the apostrophe. I’m a purist), I allowed myself to look past my increasing apathy towards the Simpsons, and give my favorite yellow characters (except That Yellow Bastard, from Sin City), another try and check out the latest Hallowe’en “Treehouse of Horror,” episode.
Consequently, while preparing for another board-game broo-ha-ha with some of my local besties, I grabbed The Simpsons’ Clue, because one of our group has Clue on the short list of games she will actually play. Besides, since it’s the Simpson’s version of a classic board game, it’s inherently fun, right? I just didn’t realize how much more I’d enjoy the board game than the show.
