Well that's a shame... I never felt the need to comment, but I really did enjoy this show.

Both of the escapist's science related shows gone in the same week... Terrible.

Happy trails Ashley! Bring back some souvenirs!

Huh, I never noticed this show even existed until now. I liked it! Too bad it's going away, best of luck!

Farewell Ashely, and while you're fixing Kepler watch out for Road Runners.

Guess I'm going back to slashdot for my geeky science news. Ashely was such a great host with a great sense of comedic delivery. Happy trails.

Damn this show was awesome. It was a really nice way to keep updated... If the escapist don't bring it back in this form, I would love to see something similar

Awww, don't go! I love the Geekend Update =(

This means I have to watch Wishlist more often to make sure Ashley stays around, and I don't like Wishlist all that much (except for Ashley hosting it); I either can't afford it or it's for North Americans only.

THE SACRIFICES I MAKE. /first world problems

aww. we'll miss you.

Be careful up there. Especially if the Tardis shows up. The Doctor has an iffy record where pretty blondes are concerned.

Why do you people not like Science?

Wait if Ashley is really going, does that mean the Wishlist is gone too?

Admittedly that show isn't great, but we need more Ashley!!

EDIT:

Hmm, so the problem could be one of web-design, and promoting your content, Escapist.

I wonder how much ad revenue this is costing?

First Reel Physics dies, and now the Geekend Update is going too? Does no-one on the Escapist like science or something? Both shows were just hitting their stride!

Good luck on your future endeavours Miss Esqueda.

Good luck on your new mission, Ashley!

You, (and your show) will be missed. :(

Enjoyed the show while it lasted. The Universe needs more science savvy shows if we're ever going to save the species from extinction -- hint: All our eggs are in one basket. The more aware the public is the easier it will be to save the Planet, you've been a part of that most epic adventure.

Godspeed on your travels, you are a fine host.

Sigh. (Scratches yet another awesome show off the list.)

You've been great, Ashley. Hope to see you keeping up the geek-talkin' science-reportin' ninjutsu elsewhere.

So its back to the depressing lunacy that is Game industry news? I can't say I'm looking forward to that.

You did great Ashley! Good luck in the future!

Last Episode? What? no way! This show has been awesome. Well best of luck Ashley, I'll actually miss your terrible puns.

Also little nit-pick on the episode. You said North-Western Canada while showing a picture of Ontario, which is where the news came from, but I don't think Ontario counts as North-Western Canada, 'cause Canada is really big.

Come on escapist, sing with me now

It's a shame, I liked this show
We will all be tang

Gotta admit, I'm mildly annoyed this is being canned. I rather enjoyed the presentation of this show, it was a lot of fun and, most of the time, had a pretty good sense of humor about it.

Ah well, best of luck Ashley. You've done good work here.

oh well, I hope you get another show on the escapist.

sorry to see the show go, thanks for all the work.

i'll miss you Ashley. good luck for the future, hope to see you doing something else really cool really soon. this was a great show, thank you for hosting it. you've done a great job.

ps. keep up the puns, you can never have too many puns.

I'll bring you back that reaction wheel!

Yeah, I'm bummed I won't be able to make the Geekend Update any longer -- but if it's any consolation, it's because I got a full time gig, and in the world of internet freelancing, that's like finding the Higgs Boson~

I'm bummed that you're leaving us...but relieved that you're moving on to something better (from the sound of it). Should we just Google your name in a month or so to find out where you'll be setting up shop or can you offer us some juicy hints?

In any case before you leave...

*rummages around in back room*



Th-the last...? B-buh...! Well, I don't suppose someone out there will keep trying to post science articles? Alas... thanks for the interesting and entertaining show while it lasted!

Just what I've always wanted!

Congratulations on the job, I hope you'll have a blast and make lots of content, whatever it may be :)

wait, are you gone from the show or are you going to leave the site entirely?

Wait, what? Oh...that's too bad. This show was awesome, I learned a fair bit and I loved watching it on the weekend! Any particular reason why?
I'll add you to my G+. I look forward to seeing what other shows you make :D

Aww, not you too! First Reel Physics and now Geekend Update... I'm gonna have to watch gaming news again, and that crap is depressing these days.

Fly safe Ashley, and say hi to The Doctor for me.

Gone entirely, I'm afraid (with the exception of E3 coverage -- but I'm done with The Wishlist and Geekend Update).

I can totally tell you guys where I'm headed. I'll be starting in a week (6/4) as the Senior Content Producer at TechnoBuffalo. We do have a science section there, but I'm not sure anyone can match the awesome of guys like Josh and Jon here at Esc. :) I'll be hosting, writing, producing, and doing all kinds of other stuff.

I also have a very NSFW tech podcast, filled with swearing and gadgets and weird, weird news. It's called Techfoolery, and you guys are ALWAYS welcome to listen and hang out with us:

I really meant it when I said this was the most fun show I've ever written and hosted in my career. I learned new things every week, and got to talk about things that make me excited to wake up in the morning. You never know when we'll get out of bed and learn our whole lives have changed because of science, and that's such a great, amazing thing to me.

That's quite sad. I liked this show. Good luck, Ashley!

Naww!
Come baack!
How am I gonna learn things without you!?

Sorry to see you go.

Best of luck out there. What am I saying? You don't need luck.
Besides, luck is just an abstract concept we humans came up with.

well, best of luck in your new job.

Quantum computer..... so google have created one under the rug while everyone else says we yet dont know how to do that? Are they time traveling wizards?
