Pick of the Geek (August 20-26, 2017)

The Geekend Gladiators are listing once again this week’s most important stuff in the world of geek and pop culture. As always, we will provide a list of things to watch, read, play, and even important events to look out for.

Without further ado, here’s the Geekend Gladiators’ Pick of the Geek:

GAME OF THRONES “Beyond the Wall”

This week’s Game of Thrones episode is definitely a must-watch. Based on every season of the show, the penultimate episode is the most action-packed episode, and this season does not seem to buck that trend.

Jon Snow and his merry men/avengers/team are now beyond the wall and will face head-on with the Night King and his men. From what we’ve heard (from the unfortunate leaked episode), there will at least be one major death in the episode. And by the way, this episode is set to go for at least 70 minutes, based on reports. This is the final stretch, don’t you dare miss it!

SUITS “Full Disclosure”

Well that didn’t last long. After Mike’s admission to the bar and his coming back to PSL, it looks like there’s trouble once again in paradise. This time Mike and Harvey are at a crossroads, and it looks like there’s a divorce waiting to happen here. Will Mike stop being Harvey’s Robin and start becoming ‘Nightwing’? Let’s see what happens this coming week.


The latest anime/manga adaptation in Hollywood is Death Note. The difference here is that it will be released on Netflix. While suffering from some fan backlash, the trailer does seem to make the movie appealing to casual viewers.

Death Note revolves around Light, an unassuming guy, comes into possession of a notebook called Death Note. This notebook gives the possessor the power to kill a person who’s name is written on the notebook. The police must now solve these series of events.

UNCHARTED: The Lost Legacy

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is a spin-off of the successful Naughty Dog franchise, Uncharted. However, in this installment, we follow the adventures of Chloe. Seeing that this is the first Uncharted game that will not follow Nathan Drake, the game has a lot of living-up to do, and time will only tell if this game is worthy of sharing the same game universe as that of Uncharted.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy comes out on August 22 on PS4.



Geeks rejoice! Asia Pop Comic Con is happening this week in Manila, for the 3rd straight year. The APCC will take place on August 25-27 at the SMX Convention Center.

This year, guest stars include Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and Tyler Hoechlin (Superman), artists Alan Quah, Carl Potts, Rodney Ramos, Stanley Lau, and Whilce Protacio, and a rumored Marvel exclusive in Hall H, and many more.

The Geekend Gladiators will be there this week. We hope to see you!
