Nerds Assemble episode 75: Second chances


This week: Elite Keyboard, Thor 3, JK Rowling and giving things a second chance.

Emily, Paul, Paul and Paul discuss:

  • Game devs concerned that the Elite Spectrum Keyboard will enable people to play unlicensed versions of their classic games
  • Thor 3 production kicking into gear, writers hired
  • JK Rowling regrets having Hermione marry Ron in the Harry Potter novels

We spend the final section of the show looking at the films, videogames and TV series that we’ve (for better or worse) tried to give a second chance to after being disappointed or put off the first time we encountered them. From Babylon 5 to Final Fantasy XIII-2; Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to Smallville; Kingdom Hearts to The Legend of Zelda Skyward SwordMario 64 to Halo and beyond – you’ll be surprised by what we’ve given the benefit of a doubt.

So, are you sitting comfortably?
