Do second screens really make playing video games and watching television that much better? And if not, how is Nintendo going to keep the Wii U relevant?

On this week’s episode we discuss Noel Murray’s recent article at Grantland on why he finds second-screen viewing so useless, and why Nintendo runs the risk of becoming a boutique gaming company (if it isn’t already). Finally we’ll take a look at Rob Thomas’ stunningly successful “Veronica Mars” movie Kickstarter, and what that does or doesn’t mean for producing movies going forward.
