We breathe fire at Dragon Age: Origins and mix it up with DJ Hero. What's in The Box? Should you have a close encounter with The Fourth Kind? Plus, we build TIE-Fighter kites!
The Totally Rad Show is Revision3's explosion of movie, video game, TV, and comics news and reviews. TRS was born in the depths of geek culture, at an epic game of Dungeons and Dragons in 2006. Alex Albrecht, host of Revision3's Diggnation, and Dan Trachtenberg, former host of Revision3's Geekdrome, met Jeff Cannata, former video game columnist, at the D&D table, and became fast friends. Intense debates over Star Wars characters, late night frag-fests in Gears of War, Heroes- and Lost-watching parties, and the sharing of dog-eared copies of Preacher graphic novels followed, leading the guys to one clear realization: This is the stuff we love. This stuff is totally rad. Individually, Alex, Dan, and Jeff had always wanted to find a show that approached geek culture with as much fervor as they did, that wasn't embarrassed to roll dice or dress like Jedi, that realized that nerd is the new cool. Together, they decided to make it. But one component was still missing. Luckily, they turned to uber-video god and bona-fide geek in his own right, Steve Koncelik, to help create a look and feel that was as rad as the subject matter. Several months, and hundreds of exploding fist-pumps later, the Totally Rad Show debuted on Revision3. Four dudes in a garage. One green screen. A cubic ass-ton of enthusiasm. The Totally Rad Show is all about the feeling of sharing a great new movie, or video game, or tv show, or comic with your buddies. It is about the excitement in finding a piece of entertainment you love, or the pain in realizing something isn't as rad as you had hoped. It is about finding friends who share your interests and get just as excited as you do. If it is out there and it is Rad, it is on the Totally Rad Show.

As viewers of episode 36 remember, Alex, Dan, and Jeff weren't fans of Richard Kelly's last movie - and that's putting it mildly. But with The Box, the director of Donnie Darko returns to the kind of sci-fi, head-trip stories that made him famous. Can it possibly make up for Southland Tales?
The Fourth Kind is a new horror movie about alien abduction that makes some pretty shocking claims about the veracity of its story. Are the guys buying what its selling?
Even if it doesn't feel like Fall in LA, Alex, Dan, and Jeff set out to do a classic Autumn activity: flying kites! But not just any kites will do for the rad trio. Can you say... Star Wars kites?
A game studio known for deep, story-based role-playing experiences, Bioware returns to the fantasy setting with Dragon Age: Origins. Is it the must-play RPG of the year?
A high price tag, a plastic instrument, and tons of licensed music, it must be a new rhythm game. But DJ Hero changes things up by putting the focus on a whole different music culture. Are the guys hip to the DJ action, or do they think it is whiggity-whiggity wack?
