2011 Look Back

American Chopper Live: The Buildoff

American Chopper Live: The Buildoff

So Q & I wanted to kick off 2012 aka Season 3 of EftRou by taking a look back at the highlights of 2011 and sharing with you a few things that stood out for us as interesting moments in entertainment and beyond.  Q has some TV/Movie highlights as well as some thoughts about the Live special of American Chopper.  I happened to go with my Geekier side talking some video games as well as sharing my thoughts on TV and the business of entertainment, including news that caught a lot of people guard this past year.

2012, To infinity and beyond!

Fringe On Fox

Fringe On Fox

Next up Q and I attempt to prognosticate about what will be the big highlights of 2012, including that pesky end of the world rumor.  Q thinks a certain comic book movie will be big.  Square plans on seeing a trio of movies including the last Dark Knight Saga movie, A Ridley Scott film and the return to the Shire (Which Q is now on the bandwagon with).  I managed to find 2 Movies that cause pause as the fact that Q hasn’t heard of either of them. Q thinks he’s found the stinker of the year remake movie.  Lastly I stick with 1 returning favorite TV show, Fringe and another new one from the mastermind of J.J.Abrams & Company.

We always hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on twitter via @entfortherest you can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q) and me SquareRoss (@SquareRoss).

Until next time stay safe and enjoy your entertainment!
