It's a hard-knock life in The Orphanage. Unreal Tournament 3 frags the PS3. Vader and Yoda in Soul Caliber IV? Plus Mad Men, and, because you demanded it, Dexter!
This week in Movies:
It is an international edition of the movie segment this week, starting with a review of the Spanish-language thriller, El Orfanato (The Orphanage), presented by Guillermo del Toro. One, two, three, the guys knock on the wall.
Meanwhile in Thailand, the Jackie Chan-esque legacy of stunt-laden martial arts films continues with Chocolate. Alex, Dan, and Jeff are impressed by the new trailer.
This week in Video Games:
Alex, Dan, and Jeff have played a bunch of Epic's newest frag-fest, Unreal Tournament 3 on both the PC and PS3. Does it compare to the great multiplayer experiences in Call of Duty 4 and Team Fortress 2?
One of Dan's favorite overlooked titles of 2007 was Stuntman: Ignition from THQ. Alex and Jeff give the game a whirl to see if they agree with Dan's high praise.
Namco-Bandai shocked the geek world this week, with announcemen of surprise characters in their upcoming fighter, Soul Caliber IV. The guys discuss the ramifications of playing Darth Vader and Yoda in SCIV!
This Week in TV:
Following the Best of 2007 episode , Alex, Dan, and Jeff received an overwhelming number of emails wondering why they hadn't included Showtime's Dexter in any of their top 5 lists for TV. Their reason? None of them had seen it! This week, they rectify the situation and give Dexter a proper review.
AMC's Mad Men has been receiving kudos from many critics, and even earned Golden Globe nominations. But is it rad?
The guys put-put over to the mini-golf course for an epic TRS showdown on the greens in the shade of the castle and windmill.
This week's email question asks the guys to look forward to the rest of 2008 for their most anticipated events. Expect some unexpected responses!

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.
