It's 2012. The world is probably coming to a fiery end soon. So where is our flying car? And while we're at it, are there going to be lightsabers? Or clones? Or hoverboards? Or any number of things that science fiction and pop culture have promised us? Paul and AJ ruminate on these questions of the future, discussing whether or not some of these goals are attainable or even desirable. And heads up: shit gets kinda bleak.

Your worst nightmares have been realized: Paul and AJ are back with another season of Gobbledygeek! To kick things off, the boys discuss two films released late last year. Though they are both very different, they're both about damaged women: Young Adult, the very un-Juno-like reteaming of Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody, starring Charlize Theron as a self-obsessed YA author; and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, David Fincher's adaptation of the first book in Stieg Larsson's blockbuster Millennium series, starring Rooney Mara as fierce hacker/investigator Lisbeth Salander. They clash over Young Adult's polarizing conclusion, and come together in defense of Mara's Salander who has not been softened or overly sexualized, thank you very much.


Next: the future, according to pop culture.
