In this episode, the girls talk about some of the science fiction/fantasy/horror genres currently available on t.v. and in the movies; when they were growing up, they were hard-pressed to find more than a handful of t.v shows and now they can't keep up. In the crafting part of the show, they discuss the creativity juices that flow during the various conventions because of the interactions between geeky fans and how it continues afterwards -- from costuming to knitting/crochet to jewelry to LARP writing...or even creating a podcast.
