Weekend Discussion - February 18, 2023

Come for the vibes, stay for Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur appreciation.


The weekend is here! Before the start of NBA All-Star Saturday, let's jump into the Saturday edition of Weekend Discussion.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

Shut up and JAM!

The Slam Dunk Contest has been more miss than hit in recent years, but there's no denying that when it's on, it's on, so it's still appointment television.

Palming your basketball

Mixing professional basketball with all the awkwardness of a CES tech demo.

Measuring up to her Stature

MCU head honcho Kevin Feige and Cassie Lang actress Kathryn Newton were in attendance at the Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania screening in Hollywood last night, which I only mention because I was in the back row live. Go, me!

I still have Quantumania thoughts and as soon as I have a chance to stop running, I'll sit down and jot those down.

Speaking of Marvel...

No joke, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur might be the best Marvel show out there right now. Go watch this, if you haven't already. The first six episodes are on Disney+.

Weekend grooves

Speaking of Moon Girl, the music on this show is legit. Check out some of these songs.

That's it for this Weekend Discussion! We're excited to hear from you, too, so join the conversation and dive into the Shacknews Chatty comment thread below. I'll see you all next week!

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
