Chris and Sam return from their voyages out of town with Chris detailing his experiences at New York City and New York Comic Con while Sam reveals his respective adventures in Atlanta. In doing so, the discussion turns to all those personal anecdotes which should be at least slightly sexy but, in true Geek Out fashion, turned hilariously awkward. The stories range from East Coast strip clubs to European gay bars to the usual high school romantic awkwardness. Oh, and Jake vehemently defends the unfairly put-upon Aquaman. This time, things get personal.

The action-packed discussion that began last week continues here with Jake discussing why Skyrim and Madonna go together like peanut butter and jelly. From there, the conversation largely goes into a timely talk about the gang's favorite horror films. Chris talks about his love of the Nightmare on Elm Street series which has been reinvigorated by watching the critically acclaimed documentary, Never Sleep Again, tracing the history of the franchise. Sam reveals the types of horror movies he grew up with and how he didn't really start watching slasher movies until a bit later in life. Jake observes that he didn't start watching horror movies in general until the other Geek Out guys but has since embraced the genre, particularly the Halloween films. Finally, the entire gang reaches an agreement on how they view the Friday the 13th franchise. If you're looking for you autumnal horror fix, look no further, true believers.

It's been a fairly low key week for the Geek Out trio giving Chris the chance to revisit the Superman films he grew up with.
