Geek I/O Rants and Reviews: The Color of Magic

This week on the Geek I/O Rant and Review, we discuss 2008's TV miniseries The Color of Magic based on Terry Pratchett's Discworld book series.

Why was this movie so divisive?  What is the color of magic?  Why does Sean Astin age so slowly?  How many cheeseburgers has Tim Curry eaten?  Should David Bradley ever take his shirt off?  How many Excalibur references can your magic sword make?  Can you imagine (poor cgi) dragons?  Does your steampunk space suit fit?  Does an orangutan make a good librarian?  Why so serious, space turtle? 

Join us on Geek I/O, won't you?  We'll meet you at the circum-fence.
