2017 is finally here! Geek Hard is celebrating the same way they do every year: by taking one final look back on the previous year and declaring what was the Best of the Best.
Join us for a special 90 MINUTE episode where we count down the Best of the Best in comics, television and movies from 2016. What was the best ongoing comic series of the year? Batman, Saga, Thor, something else entirely? What was the best T.V. series? Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, The Flash are all previous winners. One hint though this marks the first year Mr. Green doesn’t have Last Week Tonight on his list. How ’bout the best film? With Ghostbusters, Moana, Doctor Strange and so many more to choose from. These questions are answered by Andrew, Mr. Green and our special panel of judges. So who’s on this panel? Why non other than two of Geek Hard best and brightest, we were joined by our expert panel: Adrienne Kress and Kris Johnson.
Adrienne is best known outside of Geek Hard for her middle grade and young adult novels. Here, she has many titles: The First Lady of Geek Hard, The Sentinel of Hope, The Highest Common Denominator….etc. The list goes on, and yes she gets another new one on this episode. Kris Johnson is a Jack of All Trades and has worn many hats on the show. He’s essentially the third man of Geek Hard. Green hates him……but then again, Green hates a lot of people.
You’re not going to want to miss this fantastic critique of entertainment from 2016. You might find out about a show or a book or a film that you missed. You could also get confirmation that you’re not crazy and that thing you loved this year was in fact the Best of the Best. Only way to find out is to listen.
It was a great show!
Plus for our Patreon supporters, our latest Geek Hard Extra After Credits segment where the four of us continue to talk about some other things that we liked but didn’t make our Best of lists for 2016.
