We are on the brink of a fantastic month of geek ladies and gentlemen. I repeat a fantastic month of geek! Which is super cool to say in a month normally dominated by college basketball and currently dominated by the election of a new Pope. Let get through the minor news items, minor to me anyway, right away. The month kicks off with what looks to be a sweet retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk. Not my favorite of tales but it looks good enough to burn some greenbacks on some popcorn and I dig Ewan Mcgregor. Then just a measly week later we get the highly touted James Franco vehicle Oz: The Great and Powerful. A lot of people don't know that ole Frank L. wrote more than one book on Oz and although , if my memory serves, none of them where a prequel I am just stoked to see an expansion of this world. There, now that that's over with let's move on to what is truly making this month the magical month it is going to be, it's just a shame we are going to have to wait until the last two days. Saturday March 30 will see the return of the Doctor, complete with a new companion , resplendent in his bow tie. Admittedly I'm late to the good Doctors party but nevertheless the amount of weight this premier gives to March cannot be ignored. However geek just builds from there because the month ends with a battle royal , clash of the titans , two shows enter one show leaves , fist fight , title bout for the ages. The season three finale of The Walking Dead, and the season three premier of Game of Thrones arrive on our televisions at the same time, on the same day. A predicament placing all of Geeknerddom on notice . Who will it be? Tyrion Lannister or Rick Grimes, Jon Snow or Daryl Dixon? Thank God we have all whole month to make up our mind. Thank God for DVR.

Hello World! Geek Cast Live here with our first blog post ever. So here's our introduction. We're a group of friends with a lot of geeky pass times: Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and about a million other things (ask us we'd love to talk about it). We live tweet events like TV shows (The Walking Dead, Academy Awards, Game of Thrones), Comic Book News, Movie Reviews and other stuff that we think is cool (GenCon, SteamCon, Magic the Gathering). If you're passionate about anything geeky (seriously: Firefly, Torchwood, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along-Blog, Benedict Cumberbatch, Star Trek, Star Wars, need I say more?) then sit back, read our posts and follow us on Twitter. Our handle is @geekcastlive. Also feel free to enjoy content from any of our (currently 5) bloggers: @geekcastry, @geekcastbass, @geekcastjoe, @geekgurljo, @geekgurlles. Did I leave anything out? I don't know. You tell me. Comment below, or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And as always, #geekharder
Note: Almost anything we blog about is probably an opinion or a reblogged/reposted piece of the internet. We'll probably give you the link so that you can follow the river of knowledge to it's source.
