FTW FRIDATY! NARUTO AND STAR TREK ARE FOR GEEKS!
Last time on Naruto: Shipoopooden, Sakura-chan ate a bunch of 7-11 hot dogs. Like way too many. Like a half dozen. And somebody stole the key for the bathroom! Meanwhile, Kakashi-senpai tries to ride his skateboard of the Devel's Gooch Canyon but Kabuto stole his wheels with the help of his cartoon dog, Mutley. Meanwhile, Sasuke gets the test results for his pregnancy! Who is the father? Naruto?! OR SASUKE!!!!
Familiar Faces is a fantastic series that takes a look at characters that are on the periphery and The Geek is definitely an outlier. This video is a testament to the special story-telling powers of comics that television and film is just now starting to embrace. Comic book publishers take risks.
If Riker was the main character of Star Trek: The Next Generation, it would be a far more disturbing look at bachelor life. There would also be more chair mountings and a good helping of Riker's "growing up in Alaska with a weird martial arts military dad" stories. I miss watching episodes of TNG I hadn't seen...
