A look ahead to 2010 movies and games! What do we think of Reitman's newest? It's Up in the Air! Is Sherlock Homes more than just elementary? Do we still love King's Bounty? Is Pixel Junk Shooter on target?
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.

Alex, Dan, and Jeff certainly disagreed about Jason Reitman's last film, Juno. With all its positive buzz, will Up in the Air be just as divisive?
Alex and Jeff weren't able to see the new Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes before leaving for the holidays, but luckily Dan weighs in with a full report for the guys.
Speaking of favorite games, the Pixel Junk franchise has consistently raised the bar for downloadable titles on the PS3, culminating in last year's Pixel Junk Eden. Does the newest addition, Pixel Junk Shooter continue the trend?
The guys look ahead to some of the most interesting upcoming geek events of 2010 in the world of movies and games, and try to sum up their feeling about the top 10 in each category in a single sentence. This might get puny.
