If I had to pick one movie to forget so I could watch it again afresh I'd have to flip a coin between Groundhog Day and Shanghai Noon.

Mark Hamill was also in Darksiders as The Watcher.

Also, Amanda talking to the podcast after the trivia game:

Mark Hamill played the Trickster on the Flash TV show. Not the current Flash TV show, the good one.

I bought Meteorfall while it was being talked about, and I beat it before the podcast was over. It's pretty much the only time I've wished for more padding in a game.

Well actually, he is the Trickster, as the same character in both. And he is awesome.
Also the Flash in the old series is Barry's dad in the new one.

What's the guest's name? Aaron? Erin? Wrong line up on the show description.

Excellent guest nevertheless, get them back please!

If they'll have me back on, I'd love to talk games again. Anytime!

Well, over the weekend a rare event occurred. I found an episode of Columbo I'd only seen once. Most I've seen five or six times and I don't particularly want to watch them for a sixth or seventh time. A few I've only seen two or three times and I'm still happy to watch them.

As I enjoyed the episode and Columbo's polite but relentless harassment of another known murderer, it occurred to me that, out of all forms of entertainment, the one thing I'd like to forget so I could enjoy them afresh is all the old Columbo shows. I'd be set, entertainment wise, for a very long time if I could do that.

Argh, thanks. All fixed!

AMANDA IN THE FIRST SEAT, WOOHOOO!!!
Great episode, really enjoyed Aaron as a guest on the GWJCC and immediately backed the Kickstarter, it sounds like sooo much fun.
Was completely in stitches during the trivia. In STITCHES. Andrich, I'd promise to throw you a Mass Effect question, but when one did come up, you failed miserably. It's Eden Prime, Jenkines bites the dust (JEEEEENKIIIIIINSSS!!!!!) and guess what, Kaidan LIVES!
I was pretty happy with myself for remembering the Hyperion from SC2 and 158 from Myst.

About that "first time" feeling, I distinctly remember the feeling when I finished Frank Herbert's Dune books. I must've been about 12 or 13 and I remember sitting on the couch, in the living rom of the house I grew up in, closing Chapterhouse: Dune and feeling so sad, because I knew there wouldn't be any more books, since Frank Herbert had already passed away.
Then his son and his buddy went on to make more books which were awful, so that happened.

Also, ME: Andromeda, it just wasn't what people expected of the "Mass Effect" franchise. Take away that label, and people would've seen it differently.
