This week: We dive into Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Miracle Laurie joins us to talk dolls, acting, Uke Box Heroes, and the return of Dollhouse for its final run. Audra chats lit with the Tolkien Professor. And we run down the week in geek, including Comcast’s NBC purchase, a sad SETI@Home user’s professional peril, the new Star Trek MMO, and the awesome (and regrettably-named) new Firefly-meets-Ocean’s 11 sci-fi show Slingers reel.
I’ve never played an MMO, but I’ve played excellent pen and paper RPGs that had little or no combat in them. If they could manage to achieve that the game could be great. RPG fun = fighting is a bit unimaginative.
