Episode 150 - I Am Gout!

Welcome to Episode 150 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, the Geeks (Jeff, Jake, Nate and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

 

DC is putting out a Batman vs the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles and that got us all excited!  Jake talks about how aligned it appears to be with the comic book, and we discuss any possible changes.  This leads to us speculating about time changes across the dimensions, because Shredder gets to Gotham more than a year before the turtles.  Batman isn't happy when he first encounters them but when he realizes the true threat, they work together.  Do you think Batman likes one of the Turtles more than any other?  Which one do you think it is?

With the Disney acquisition of Fox properties now at a close, we talk about the implications of the next phase in the MCU. Thoughts are that the Illuminati will be a focus, which is a great way to incorporate Prof. X and even Namor.  However, will the Xmen being a completely new set of people?  Will they start them young, like first class? Will they have a new Wolverine, and who will it be?  Speaking of MCU, James Gunn is back at the GotG helm, but he is gonna be busy because he is also going to direct the Suicide Squad for DC!  Which movie do you think will be made first?

After a little discussion of James Van Der Beek, who we all kind of like, we talk about TV programming.  Lex Luthor is now on Supergirl though we're concerned that they are watering down Supergirl's importance by using Superman and his villains on HER show.  They should emphasize a whole new crop of villains for her.  We discuss Netflix programming, which will take a hit when the Disney+ streaming services comes out later this year.  We also talk about Kevin Smith making a bit of a resurgence with his meta Jay and Silent Bob reboot.  Somehow, we get into butt stuff but if you think about it, don't we all?

Episode 149 - You look Mar-Vellous

Welcome to Episode 149 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jake, and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

We saw Captain Marvel and did she kick some serious butt!!  Did she kick Kree, or Skrull, butt?   Well, if you want to know then listen to this episode because we pretty much spoil the movie.  This is the last MCU movie before End Game, and they show us what Thanos will be up against.  Firstly, there is a really cool tribute to Stan Lee in the opening title.  And his cameo is GREAT in the movie, making us think that he IS God.  What are your thoughts on it? 

The movie makes some minor changes from the comics, specifically with the Skrulls and Kree, and maybe also how she gets how powers. However, the changes work well and shouldn't bother too many purists.  We see Ronan, though he doesn't appear to be down with the clowns because he doesn't have his face paint on.  

We talked about space travel, and how some of these characters are doing it.  Its faster than light speed, but we aren't sure if it is straight up teleportation.  One of the Geeks thinks they are similar modes, which leads to some arguing and deriding.  Listen to see which one of us it was!

Episode 148 - Bake n’ Shake

Welcome to Episode 148 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jeff, Chris and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

We start our episode off with Doom Patrol, the latest live action offering on DCU.  It is a very non-conventional show, with weird characters, and it can be a lot of fun.  We talk about the characters, their powers and possible offerings later in the season.  We talk about the Titans connection as well.  

Next, we jump to Marvel and specifically of the Captain variety.  Jake was the only Geek to have seen the movie but he wasn't around to share his thoughts. We talked about the BS that Sam Jackson has been feeding us for years, making us think he was spoiling stuff but really he was just messing with our heads.  We started to talk about the next phase for the MCU, and how there is a long break after End Game.  We jump over to the Spidey verse, talk more about that movie and then how the new Spiderman movie will fit into the whole timeline.

For all you Trekkies out there, we give the Bakedown of Star Trek Discovery. Chris Baker gives us a complete synopsis of season 1 and a bit into season 2.  We talk about how the new Picard based show will play out.  He tells us how Discovery fits into the Star Trek universe, including the newer movies.  You won't wanna miss this section of the pod.

Lastly, we talk about the CW multiverse with attention to Arrow, which had just been announced will be ending after next season. We have mixed feelings about the news, as that show was what sparked our podcast!  Some of us think all good things end, and need to end to help it be defined as a good show.  Hopefully, his Green Arrow will be absorbed somewhere in the DCU on a new Justice League type show.  Who knows what other DC characters could start to get their own shows.  Who would YOU like to see get their own show?

Episode 147 - Geeky and the Rippers

Welcome to Episode 147 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jake, Jeff and Nate) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

Word on the Comms is that nothing was accomplished this episode, however, if you are an ardent listener then you know that this is ALWAYS the case!  We got a glimpse of the blue Genie that is Will Smith and started talking about that.  As it normally goes in our conversation, we ended up a bit off track and discussed how Genies are created.  Were they people that became a Genie, or are Genies their own race?  Do you know any Genies that you could ask?

 

You can guarantee that we will talk about our favorite topics, such as the upcoming Marvel movies.  Captain Marvel is less than a month away, and despite silly fans trying to bomb review it, we believe its gonna be good.  Especially when it leads into End Game which is what everyone is still talking about.  DC has exciting news also, other than the upcoming Doom Patrol on DCU.  Aquaman seems to not only be ruling the 7 seas, but definitely still the box office!

John Stamos is our featured celebrity this week.  Are you a fan of his work, both on screen and behind the drums?  The Beach Boys were apparently.  Too bad he was never a leading man, or was he?   Let us know what you think!

Episode 146 - The No Food-Must Murder Cleanse

Welcome to Episode 146 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jake, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

We had to start on that Avengers teaser that was aired during the "Big Game" and was it a good one!  Although, it left us wanting more...both visually, and informationally.  We throw some theories around, maybe one of them will be right.  We throw a potential "spoiler" out there while Mitch covers his ears, but it isn't confirmed or even that big of a deal. 

Next, we jump to the DCU which is still our favorite streaming service.  We are pumped for the next round of Young Justice episodes, slated for June, as well as the Doom Patrol.  This led us to talk about the DCEU, which confirmed that Batfleck is out and someone new will enter the fray, possibly younger.  As much as we liked Batfleck, which oddly enough we did, we are excited for a younger iteration of the Dark Knight.  Maybe DC will realize that it's streaming service can blur the lines between TV and movies, eliminating the need for huge star power.  

We started talking about different shows and movies, such as the Ted Bundy documentary.  Apparently, Jeff shouldn't have watched it alone and he recommends you avoid doing the same.  He also told us about Russian Dolls, which is kind of like Happy Death Day.  We talked about Y:The Last Man being made into a show on FX.  Then, for some of our long time listeners we tried talking about Star Trek.  Unfortunately, the Geeks that were in attendance havent watched the new Star Trek, so we talked about Orville instead.  Essentially, Seth McFarland redid Star Trek and added some humor.  Isn't that good enough?

Episode 145 - Road to Nerdition

Welcome to Episode 145 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Nate, Jake and Matt Orrin) are joined by Evan Johnson & Reese Jenniges, back in the remains of El Charrito for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

First off this week is Young Justice: Outsiders.  This show, though filled with more characters than necessary, is great and is another reason why all geeks should have the DCU streaming service.  It is great seeing all your favorite, and somewhat obscure, characters get time but it is also cool to see some of the newer, less known characters such as Halo.  She is a bit OP though, as it seems that she is getting new powers daily!  This made us wonder if maybe she will become a multi-colored Lantern.  Do they even exist?  The action on the show is pretty solid, especially when Batman infiltrates Santa Prisca island with the Outsiders.

We jumped to Netflix next to talk about the Marvel properties, specifically Daredevil S3 and Punisher S2.  Reese got caught up on a bunch of the shows, but we all agree that it doesn't get much better then S3 of DD, from multiple aspects.  The fight scenes are top notch, as is the characters, but Vincent D'Onofrio steals it all with his Kingpin.  We'd love a show just about him, told from his perspective.  We'd talked about how relatable Punisher can be, and his second season.  Did you think it was as good as S1?

Mitch tells us the results from the online Magic poll, with the results being debatable.  Is it JUST magic, or it is Science that we haven't been able to describe yet.  Listen to some of us fight it out...verbally. 

We jump into Disney, and the announcement of a rated R Black Widow movie.  An R rated Disney movie!?!?  Could this set a precedent for future Marvel movies?  Let's hope!

Episode 144 - Taste the Rainbow, MFer!

Welcome to Episode 144 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, a small subset of Geeks (Mitch, Nate and Matt Orrin) are joined by Evan Johnson, back in the remains of the Comedy Room Room for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

It looks like Thanos might have finally gotten to us, as only half of the Geeks were present but that void was well filled by the shoes, and Trenchcoat, of Evan Johnson (aka Constantine).  He shared any insight he had with us on all kinds of topics, even with the Flash.  How does Flash age?  If he is moving normally when everyone isn't, would he live for a long time or does that take a toll on his body and age him quicker?  We discussed Flash because the show is back on CW, and it hit the ground running.  Some of us think Nora needs to leave the show, as she is "slowing" it down.  Her arc continues, however.  

Next on to the new Spiderman trailer...didn't we just get a Spidey movie?  Well, Far From Home comes out in a few months and what a trailer it was!  We see Mysterio, which makes us wonder what his powers are in this movie.  Are they all just F/X or can he actually DO the things we saw in the trailer?  Also, where does this movie take place with regards to Avengers: End Game?  We float a theory that it takes place DURING that movie, possibly in an altered reality.  We'll have to wait and see. 

We can't go an episode without talking DCU, and this time we're still talking about Young Justice: Outsiders.  The show is adding a lot of characters and story, but it looks like they have converged to a nice plot point.  The show is getting pretty dark, with one character getting beheaded, though they don't exactly show that detail as it happens but they do show the aftermath.  They also show Halo practically get gutted, but her healing factor kicks in.  Halo seems a bit OP, but does a good job of representation in characters.  Stay tuned for the MAIN MAN to show in ep. 9 of the show.  

After a bit of Punisher, we talk about Fyre Festival which was a "high end" festival catered to rich millennials and internet influencers...and pigs!  Mitch tells us about two documentaries, one on Hulu and the other Netflix, regarding this fiasco of a festival that had many of us laughing at how bad things went for attendees and organizers...and pigs!  There were so many things that happened, or didn't happen, that make you question how this whole thing was even considered.  There were also pigs!  Watch them to see how the shitstorm unfolded.

Episode 143 - Poop or Get Off the Potter

Welcome to Episode 143 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, the Geeks (Jake, Jeff, Mitch, Nate and Matt Orrin) are joined by Reese Jenniges (sic), back in the Quantum Realm under Mutiny Info Cafe for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

Its a new year and a new episode!  Will we go for a new 52?  Probably more likely 42, but we'll see what happens as we aren't much for resolutions.  We ARE, however, into Titans as we continue to talk about how awesome the show is and how much we are enjoying it.  The finale was nuts, with lots of questions to be answered but it also felt like it would lead into one more episode.  Did it feel like a finale to you?

We had Reese Jenniges on and there was confusion as to whether or not he would be replacing a geek.  Are the Geeks being recasted for this new season?  Who will Reese replace, if so?  That led to discussion about Young Justice: Outsiders, which came out on DCU. The show takes place a few years after the second season, which you should have watched aleady!  Things take a weird turn, especially for member Black Lightning.  We're all excited to keep watching it, as well as ALL of the other great content on our favorite streaming service. 

Next, we talk poop.  It started with Supermans poop...is it powerful?  Would he destroy a toilet?  This led to someone saying that in the old days, Potter-verse wizards would just poop where they were and then magic the poop away.  Poof!  Matt Orrin wanted to know where the poop went, because it has to go somewhere! Do the laws of Physics have ANY role in Rowlings Wizarding World??

Jeff finally saw Venom, and like the rest of us seemed somewhat whelmed.  It was good but maybe not as good as its box office suggests.  Could we see Spidey interact with the symbiote in the future?  Do they need him for success?  Will we see movie studios combine these characters, as in the Avengers movies with Sony?  Stay tuned!

Episode 142 - Hyped on the Spidey-verse

Welcome to Episode 142 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, a foursome of the Geeks (Jake, Mitch, Nate and Matt Orrin) are joined by Evan Johnson and are back in the Comedy Room Room for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

 

We had just seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse when we recorded this and, boy-howdy, we were pumped!  The movie was so good, and was referenced by someone as the best superhero movie made, possibly both animated and just in general.  Everything about it was solid, especially the animation and the writing.  The story was great and so was Nicholas Cage, but we expected him to be great.  Who was YOUR favorite character?  We jump in and out of Spidey talk throughout the episode.  It was interesting how powerful a role guns played out in the movie, used by people that don't really use or need guns.  Curious?

All that talk about everyone's favorite NYC hero got us talking about other heroes in NYC.  Could we see some sort of Spiderham spin-off show, or other characters, that maybe aren't so popular.  We then started talking about Sesame Street adding a homeless character and realized they already have one...Oscar the Grouch, which might explain his demeanor. He lives in the trash, and bothers people walking by him all day.  Who knows what will happen if they continue to gentrify the Grouch.  

Back to the DCU, which is still our favorite streaming service.  Titans has reached its finale, and we discuss it a little bit.  We talk about Batman killing people, in any of his realms, because it sure seems to happen a lot.   Though some iterations of him are better than others, such as Brave and Bold which is way better a show than it should be. We're all getting stoked for Doom Patrol, which just recently released a new trailer.  

Anthony Crawford jumped in to give us a live Crawford-ism: Who would win in a race...Speedy Gonzalez or Roadrunner?  We discuss that, but do you have an opinion on it?  We transitioned into Glass, because that looks super exciting.  We discussed implications of that world, and does the villian create himself by creating a superhero?  It brings us back to the topic of whether Batman is responsible for his villians, or vice versa.  Give it a listen.

Episode 141 - Don’t Poop on the Tour Bus

Welcome to Episode 141 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others.  This week, ALL of the Geeks (Jeff, Jake, Mitch, Nate and Matt Orrin) are joined by Jeremy Pysher and are in the Quantum Realm, located below Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

 

Another episode and we are still talking Titans! We see the history of Hank and Dawn as they share a tragedy.  We see a lot more than that, in fact...its more like Hank and Dong!  This was a real dark episode, showing Hank take one for the team to protect his younger brother Donny from a preying, pedophile Gym Teacher.  This could help explain some of Hank's aggression.  The episode ends with Rachel calling out to them from inside their dreams.  We know Trigon is coming.  What does this spell for our heroes?

Speaking of heroes, James Gunn is producing a new film that looks like a horror version of the Superman origin.  This seems very exciting for some of us.  We talked about different kinds of superhero films, such as Super (directed by James Gunn) with Rainn Wilson.  I guess Gunn is into the darker side of superpowers.   

Idols.  Do you have one?  We talked about some of ours and how we acted when we met them.  Sometimes, you lose control of things when you meet them.  For example, Jeff stiff armed Nickelback singer, Chad Kroeger, when he met Sammy Hagar.  It's probably ok, since it is Nickelback.  Pysher told us about how he met Macauly Culkin, which must have been an interesting meeting. 

We talk a little bit of Kevin Bacon, and some of his better films.  Honestly, they are all pretty good.  How many degrees of Kevin Bacon do you have?  Jeff talked about how there was nothing to do in his hometown except go to see the movie She's Having a Baby.  That was the only film in town for middle schoolers.   

Finally, we talked Elseworlds...how could we not??  The CW is establishing themselves as WAY better than DC films when it comes to delivering what we want to see.  Our favorite DC heroes encounter, and enlist, Batwoman and Superman in their quest to stop Dr. John Deegan from changing reality and becoming a god.  But a more serious threat, or Crisis, is imminent.  We talked about how DC TV is matching Marvel with their output, obviously not on a grand scale, and making fans real happy.  However, Mitch has problems with some of their animation.  Listen to find out which ones the mild, mannered, Geek can't stand.
