Can Bruno out-Borat? Overlord 2 lets us get eeevil. Is 500 Days of Summer everything we hoped? The Mechwarrior franchise is back! Plus, Jeff's Rad Tour!
Sacha Baron Cohen created a new cultural icon in 2006 with Borat, and now he's back with another of his characters from Da Ali G Show. Are Alex, Dan, and Jeff gay for Bruno?
When they discussed the trailer for 500 Days of Summer back in episode 97, Dan and Jeff were certain it was going to be one of their favorite movies of the year, and Alex was unimpressed. But Dan's Doctrine states that whenever Alex dislikes a trailer, he ends up loving the movie. Which predictions are correct? Does the Doctrine hold up? Find out as the guys finally review the film.
This week in Video Games:
Not very many games allow you to be quite as evil as Overlord 2. Between commanding minions of the onderworld and clubbing baby seals, there isn't much left for a true dark lord to do. Can Alex, Dan and Jeff get into the mayhem, or does the RTS/3rd person action hybrid gameplay fail to excite?
The Mechwarrior series of PC games took the fictional world of Battlemechs and presented the action as if it were real, simulating the technical aspects of piloting a giant robot. The recent announcement of a reboot to the Mechwarrior franchise has the guys discussing mechs, simulators, and dormant genres.
It is time for the third in our series of Rad Tours. Dan and Alex have shown off their geek havens in episodes 113 and 117, respectively. Now it is Jeff's turn!
Submit your own Mission for the guys! Click here to find out how.

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.
