Episode 157 - Commie Hummus

Welcome to Episode 157 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), joined by Michael Jeffries, are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

 

Back from a fun live show in Trinidad, we hunker down at our home base for more geekiness, starting with the ever great Doom Patrol.  The season is almost over and so much is happening on the show.  The last episode had a lot of ass in it, although probably not how you're thinking.  Tudyk continues to dominate on this show, though everyone does a real good job.  We started talking about Brendan Fraser movies, as we are wont to do.  What's your favorite movie of his?

The multiverse is a thing that is prevalent amongst Marvel offerings, most notably in the Spider-verse but also in Agents of Shield.  The new season features all kinds of twists, and also its separate from the Thanos world we know.  They apparently weren't told what would happen in the MCU so they have had to work around it.  There is a Coulson doppelganger, named Sarge, and he seems bad.  Real bad. What does this Multiverse mean for other Marvel properties?

That led us into casting for X-men characters, because they have to show up at some point.  Who would be a good new Wolverine?  We list a bunch of choices, so feel free to let us know which is your choice.  We're thinking someone about 5'3" and you wouldn't believe the actors of that height.  We finish up with small segment of Broadcast Sneaks, giving you what you need to know for your footwear needs.

Episode 156 - South West Chief Fest

Welcome to Episode 156 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, Mitch, Nate and Matt Orrin), along with comedian Dan Jones, gathered in Trinidad, CO to discuss all things geek.

We recorded in front of a live studio audience for this one, at the South West Chief Bicycle and Comedy Fest and it was great! We continued to talk about Endgame because, frankly, everyone is talking about it.  There are some holes that need addressing, especially regarding all the crazy time travel.  Now that the spoiler ban is lifted, everyone will be talking more about it.  Nate still hasn't seen it but that's his choice.

Our listeners then threw some questions at us, which we eagerly addressed, ranging from Game of Thrones to the MCU with some crossover ones. One of those questions involved a different article of clothing, other than a Gauntlet, to put the Infinity Stones.  Would it work with underwear, and how would you activate it?  Where would you put the Stones?

Episode 155 - Endgame: SPOILERS Assemble!

Welcome to Episode 155 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, Mitch, Jake, Chris Baker and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

 

Specifically, we talk Engame so be forewarned...SPOILERS abound!  We all saw the movie, as you probably also did based on the numbers it is pulling in. It went profitable after a weekend of showings!  There is a LOT to process after seeing this movie, and we did our best to do so.  We ask questions, because the movie does a good job of leaving certain things open.  So...if you've seen the movie, then give this episode a listen.

Episode 154 - The Endgame is near!

Welcome to Episode 154 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, Mitch and Matt Orrin) along with Anthony Crawford, are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

Endgame is upon us!  While we talk about other topics, the MCU dominates this episode.  We see a list of the MCU movies ranked from screenrant and we discuss them.  Some are on point, while others completely miss the mark...Ragnarok at 16, c'mon! Some are hotly contested, such as where the first Iron Man falls.  Do you agree with the current rankings.  

We also discuss the Flash and how physics still effect him.  Can he stop on a dime, or more specifically...a fixed point, or is there a slide?  Can he coordinate that slide to stop on that point?  If roadrunner could, then could he also?  We go deep on this one.

Lastly, we talk Star Wars trailer and the implications for the last movie. Is Palpatine back, and did he have anything to do with Rey's birth?  Or even Anakin's if we go back?  Who will end up the good "guy" at the end and who the "bad"?  Do the trailers show us misleading information?  We realize there are two many questions, so we just speculate.  Are you excited to see it?

Episode 153 - Broadcast Cleats

Welcome to Episode 153 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 and Matt Orrin)  are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

Doom Patrol takes a turn for the weird this week, which says a lot for this show.  Mitch gives us the breakdown of the last episode, which features the many characters inside the head of Crazy Jane.  Cliff gets a peek inside her head, at the Underground where they all live, to find Jane and bring her back to consciousness.  We talk about how good of a job they are doing with the Cyborg character, especially as far as keeping his powers manageable and somewhat believable.  

We take another stab at why Mitch doesn't like 'Horse & Sword' fantasy, with the origin story dating back to his football days and playing games in Kearney (prounounced KUR-NEE), Nebraska.  Did you know that our Mitch is a State Champion?  We didn't either, but it plays into why he doesn't like the genre.  

Next up was Star Wars talk, as there was a bunch to talk about.  The new trailer was released, giving us LOTS to discuss.  Is Palpatine going to have big role in the movie?  Will Rey turn bad, and Ben good?  Which Skywalker will rise?  The Skywalkers are terrible people and demonstrate bad personal traits, such as impatience, anger, and emotional immaturity.  Well, at least the men do including Kylo, who is the son a Skywalker.  Wait...could Han also be a Skywalker?  This brought us to bounty hunters, specifically the Mandalorian, which will be released on the Disney+ streaming service debuting in November.  Which is your favorite bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe?

Episode 152 - Papa Guido Pants

Welcome to Episode 152 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 and Matt Orrin) with Carlos Madrid are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

Endgame is weeks away and new trailers are coming out all the time!!  Some of us avoid them but the rest of soak in the glory of whats about to hit theaters.  We talk about what we know, and speculate about what we think, will happen.  Who will stop Thanos?  Will it be the newly introduced OP'd Captain Marvel?  Will it be The Hulk?  Or Ronin? Then, what will happen AFTER Endgame, as we start a whole new phase of the MCU?  Hopefully the Fantastic 4 and X-Men will be involved!

While talking about the MCU, we told Jeff the premise of Captain Marvel and he stated he doesn't like the Skrulls and might have an issue with shape changers.  We tried to delve in real deep to figure the extent of that dislike.  Does it apply to only Skrulls, or would Mystique also be in there?  What about Transformers?  

Back to Doom Patrol, and other DC properties.  This last ep of Doom patrol featured Danny the Street, a sentient street that is running from the govt.  The show is endearingly weird and we all really dig it!  Cloak & Dagger is back and when we brought it up, someone thought we were referring to the old Dabney Coleman movie with the same name.  Then we reminisced about Dabney Coleman and all of his fine roles.  What was YOUR favorite Dabney Coleman movie?

Episode 151 - You’re Merkin Me Crazy

Welcome to Episode 151 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 OGs (Jake, Jeff, Mitch, Nate and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.

Doom Patrol is up first!  Is Robotman also considered a cyborg, or would he be an android?  We talk about that, as well as whats been happening on the show.  The show is lot of fun albeit a little weird, and we speculate who else will appear on the show.  That brings us to the new Joker on Gotham, who looks kid of odd.  Odder than what you'd expect the Joker to look like, even if it all takes place years later.  We have so much discussion about the Joker in general, such as whether or not he is circumcised.  Also, it is canon that he wears a Merkin.  Do YOU know what a Merkin is?  

With Endgame around the corner, its hard not to talk about the MCU and what is coming down the pike.  We saw a pic of Paul Rudd wearing a hat, possibly with a new Fantastic Four logo.  Is this Marvel putting it out there?  Will we see them in the near future?  We speculate about the Illuminati showing up in post credits scene, introducing Prof. X, Reed Richards, and Namor.  Wouldn't that be cool!!

Prior to ending with talk about why some people (Mitch!) hate Horse and sword fantasy, we chatted a bunch about Conan O'brien and all of the cool things he has done.  Especially Conan 25, in which he release 25 years of episode material to the world for free!  We also talk about how loyal he is to his staff.  It made for a fun conversation.

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!
