Otaku 5-0 Season 3: Episode 2

Aloha everybody!

For this installment of our podcast, we have a number of firsts. Not only did Mr. A put in his first stint as moderator, we also unveil two new topics for your consideration: DVD Grab Bag & How We Would Have Done It!

1. DVD Grab Bag
Suggested by Mr. A as a way for us to expand our movie-viewing palette, this topic will be executed in two parts:

*Part 1: A select group of staffers (in this case Mr. A, Jupiter, Maka and myself) will bring 3 DVDs from their personal collections, which will be put together in a vessel of some kind (in this case, a brown paper bag.) Then each staffer will select, on-air, 1 DVD that they MUST watch. However, a staffer may be allowed to re-select his/her DVD under special circumstances:

- the staffer has already viewed the selected DVD (however he/she must be able to recall specific information about the characters and/or plot.)
- the staffer has a serious objection to the DVD's content (i.e. Jupiter refuses to watch any horror film)

*Part 2: During the next recording session, the staffers will be called upon to give an honest review of their selected DVD. Once a review is given, the DVD is returned to its original owner, who shall then offer a new DVD to the grab bag to be used in the next installment of the topic.

2) How We Would Have Done It
Originally written by me as an expansion to Sequels That Should Not Have Been Made, this topic is executed by myself asking the other panelists to come up with ways to improve a selected piece of entertainment (in this case, the much-maligned X-Men: The Last Stand.)

Lastly, joining us on the panel are Maka (Otaku 5-0 Technical Director), Contributor-at-Large Smilex (who will soon be returning to Japan after vacationing in the Islands) and special guests Kekumanshoyu (Kawaii-kon Assistant Director of Registration & Assistant Director of Staffing/Operations) & Choco (Kawaii-kon Registration Director), who have some important announcements for next year's convention.

So, please sit back and enjoy the fruit of our labors as our 3rd season rolls on!

In retrospect, my favorite kids' movie is more likely Fatal Attraction.
