GSFN Show 25: The X Files, the Robot Chicken and The Dark Knight

In yet another packed one hour show, Skip and Drew get dark and dirty as they discuss why the gays put the ‘homo’ in homocidal in film, as currently the main bad gays in The X Files: I Want to Believe. A listener points out a few overlooked gay facts from The Andromeda Strain with a character in the extreme opposite of gay killers, the token gay guy “but let’s not talk about it”.

Find out what we think of Robot Chicken: Star Wars as we shamelessly give the UK DVD release yet a another plug, which it rightly deserves. The most notable skits include Darth Vader’s collect call to the Emperor informing him of the destruction of the first Death Star; A Day in the life of Ponda Baba as we find out what exactly he was saying to Luke Skywalker in the Cantina before Obi-Wan Kenobi slices his arm off with a lightsaber; and George Dubya Bush as a Jedi.

Finally Skip and Drew talk about their trip to the big smoke that is Gotham, well actually London, where they saw The Dark Knight on the UK’s biggest screen, the IMAX at Waterloo… At 2:30am. After which only having had 2 1/2 hours sleep they manage to stay awake through the Red Bull Air Race at the O2.
