Could The Force Unleashed be better than the Star Wars Prequels? Does Spore live up to the hype? Which kind of Cohen Bros film is Burn After Reading? Plus, the first wave of TV pilots, Fringe and True Blood!
This week in Movies:
Alex, Dan, and Jeff named last year's Cohen Bros masterpiece, No Country for Old Men, the TRS movie of the year. The newest offering from Joel and Ethan is quite different. Are the guys as ebullient about Burn After Reading?
There are pictures of California's Governor on the set of the new Terminator film. The guys speculate on the merits of putting Arnold's head on another actor's body.
This week in Video Games:
Lucasarts has pulled out all the stops in making the newest Star Wars game, integrating the story into official Star Wars canon, and taking the usual limits off when it comes to using the force. As huge Star Wars fans, Alex, Dan, and Jeff decide if The Force Unleashed really is the video game experience they've always dreamed of.
No video game has generated more hype and greater anticipation than Will Wright's Spore. Now that the game is finally out, have the guys' opinions evolved?
This week in TV:
Is JJ Abrams newest series, Fringe a throwback to the must-see goodness of X-Files, or have Alex, Dan, and Jeff been there and done that?
After last week's review of Towelhead, and the guys' love of Six Feet Under, expectations are high for Alan Ball's latest offering, the HBO series, True Blood. How did the first episode stack up?

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.
