After slogging through Westeros, I thought we could use a break and hit something a little lighter.

Episode IX, The Rise of Skywalker comes out this December. Enjoy picking it apart between now and then.
From Scientific American:
At six simultaneous press conferences around the globe, astronomers on Wednesday announced they had accomplished the seemingly impossible: taking a picture of a black hole, a cosmic monster so voracious that light itself cannot escape its clutches.
This historic feat, performed by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT)—a planet-spanning network of radio observatories—required more than a decade of effort. The project’s name refers to a black hole’s most defining characteristic, an “event horizon” set by the object’s mass and spin beyond which no infalling material, including light, can ever return.
Winter is Coming (seriously, we’re under a blizzard warning throughout the central US).
With the final season coming out, it seemed the perfect time to tackle the epic series (book and TV).
Rainy days getting you down? Check the closet and blow the dust off those old, tried and true games from your youth. Just make sure all the pieces are there.
Here’s the list of this year’s nominees. Discuss.
Want a look at Jordan Peale’s new version of the Twilight Zone? You don’t need CBS All Access to watch the first episode, “The Comedian.” Just head over to YouTube and watch it now (embedding is disabled, so you have to watch it on YouTube itself). What do you think? Is it a worthy successor to the classic?
We can’t always fit every question we want into a given episode. So those leftovers are stuck in a drawer to be forgotten and unused. At least, until today.
Join us for a little something extra.
A slightly different format for this week’s episode. We’re going with quotes from the Whedonverse. That is, films and shows from Joss Whedon. How well do you know your Buffy, Angle, Firefly, and Dollhouse quotes?
