Ever wanted to get away? Ever wanted to escape into a world different from your own, if only for a moment? Sure you have. Everyone has. In this week's episode, Paul and AJ ruminate on which fictional worlds they'd like to live in, even if, as their selections prove, the mortality rate would be fairly high. On our itinerary, there's Sunnydale, CA; Middle-earth; Toronto (though a very specific Toronto); even Sesame Street. You've also got news; upcoming DVD releases; AJ's reviews of the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost extraterrestrial comedy Paul and Stephen King's novella collection Full Dark, No Stars; and Paul's brief look at the Stand by Me: 25th Anniversary Blu-ray.

Endeavoring to enlighten the non-comics-reading portion of their audience, Paul and AJ offer up a sort of Comics 101 class: twenty-seven recommendations for beginners in five different categories. From superhero fare like Batman: Year One to webcomics like The Perry Bible Fellowship; from the engrossing autiobiography Blankets to the fantasy epic Fables; from the zombie opus The Walking Dead to Calvin and Hobbes; we've attempted to cover most of the bases. In addition to all o' that, you've also got your news, your upcoming DVD releases, Paul's takes on some brand new comics, and AJ's thoughts on a few movies.

To celebrate Gobbledygeek's one-year anniversary, Paul and AJ decide to reach back into the dusty, cobweb-laced corners of their minds to bring us their Secret Origins: their first geek experiences, what led them to becoming full-fledged geeks, what made them into who they are today. Such memories as paper-and-dice role-playing, live-action role-playing, and chat room role-playing are brought up...wow, that's a lot of role-playing. Never again question their geek credentials. Also, things like comic books, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, computers, and more. Plus you've got news; upcoming DVD releases; AJ's takes on The Troll Hunter, Another Year, and How Do You Know; and Paul and AJ's joint reviews of The Adjustment Bureau and Rango.

Episode 44, "Twenty Dollar Toilet Paper?!?"

So. I've got some good news and I've got some bad news. Bad news first: this week the boys talk about the Oscars. Again. But if I have anything to say about it this will be the last time. Possibly ever. However, the good news: no one mentions Charlie Sheen even once the entire show! So... there's that. Also there's news, some new release DVD picks, AJ reviews the new Dum Dum Girls EP and Tunes: A Comic Book History of Rock & Roll. And Paul says some words about Supernatural, the Rango soundtrack, and the 1977 Ralph Bakshi animated "classic" Wizards.
