@syz: The film seems to be a continuation of the series post episode 24. I always took it as either the events of episodes 25-26 and EoE were happening concurrently, albeit one having a happier ending and happening in shinji's head. OR 25-26 was just how it was meant to be and none of the robot stuff mattered. Granted, Anno put the death threats he received in EoE as images, so that whole thing could just be a giant fuck you to the fans.
So does this mean all the current shows and the bombcast etc will be thrown out? I imagine they have some grand plan for all the new content the are gonna need. No more sports ql's with vinny and Jeff, no more bombast (even if they keep it going, I don't know if I could listen to it without Vinny there), no more vinny flavoured tri-caster craziness, no more FMVinny on UPF.... hmm.
I am glad for Vinny, but I hope the guys give us some more info soon on what giantbomb.com is actually going to be.
This no more bombcast talk is HERESY! Let it not leave your lips.
