Episode 162 - Slocum’s Run

Welcome to Episode 162 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 Power Quartet (Jeff, Jake, Mitch and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

There is talk that the Office and Always Sunny in Philadelphia shows might have some sort of combined world action.  Would that be an Always Sunny show that featured some of the Office staff?  Which former cast members would want to be on that show?  It stands to reason that many would because it would be a lot of fun.  Wouldn't it be cool if the Office just released an one-time episode, featuring members of Always Sunny?  We talk about it.

Jeff talks sports and about how much he loves NBA basketball, especially with the draft stuff going on.  We jump into the Trinity of bad teams in NY and why they rhyme.  In our sports segment, we also address a new show called Holey Moley.  It's a mini golf show with a slight edge of MXC (Most EXtreme elimination Challenge) with a touch of Rob Riggle and its pretty funny. 

Tony Shaloub is the featured actor for the week, where we discuss our favorite roles with him.  He definitely adds positives to whatever film he is in, especially with his part in it.  Is he going to be in the newly stated plans for a Sandman series?  Probably not, but Neil Gaiman will most likely be doing the writing for it if it goes forward.  It will be REALLY expensive if this truly happens, considering the world Gaiman and his artists have created in the comic series, which Matt Orrin gives the breakdown of to Jeff. Lastly, Jake talks Mustangs.

Episode 161 - Visual Hoes and Bros

Welcome to Episode 161 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 and Matt Orrin) joined by Joel Vernon and Alex Creasy, are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek.

We were a bit packed this week in the basement of Mutiny, but that didn't stop us from doing what we do best.  We started with the new Child's Play, which Joel had just seen and enjoyed.  It has some fundamental differences from the original, and we discussed those and how they might have effected the movie.  Then again, Joel is apparently a big Youtube content consumer, so its hard to really trust his judgement!   He did share a show he geeks out on, about a thrift store shopper named Paul Cantu.  He sounds pretty obsessed with this show.

Alex Creasy shared some thoughts, which is always a gamble.  He wants to make a 4th Matrix movie, and tells us the premise of it.  It sounds very Meta.  We then jumped to Kung Fu movies, which is always a favorite.  Do you have a preferred Kung Fu movie, or director?  We talked a bunch about Kung Fu Hustle then somehow switched to our featured actor of the week: Dustin Hoffman.  Despite his prolific career, we discovered that he isn't immune to a bad movie.  Whats your favorite Dustin Hoffman movie?

Jake lets us know that he has caught up on Riverdale, which leads to a weird dream that involved Jughead getting killed for an overdue burger tab.  Should that have been Wimpy, instead?  Uh oh, Wimpy...Tuesday is coming!  Apparently, Riverdale finishes pretty strongly although doesn't pay too much tribute to Luke Perry.

Of course, our week wouldn't be complete without in depth discussion of Batman and who will be playing him next.  This time its Robert Pattinson, which makes some people cringe.  Who would be a better Batman?  Could Shia LaBeouf wear the cape and cowl?  We compare the two actors, though in truth we throw a bunch more into the mix!

Episode 160 - Hunter X Thompson

Welcome to Episode 160 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) joined by Net sensation Roxxy Haze, are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek.

Roxxy Haze, a self professed Blerd (Black Nerd), shined her special light on us and shared with us her geek factor.  Being a Marvel girl, she dropped her MCU top 3 on us, which says a lot about her personality.  In fact, she dropped all kinds of knowledge on us about a wide variety of topics, especially her fervor for Anime.  She also takes a crack at singing old theme songs, in the voice of Cher, which is apparently one of her superpowers.  Wanna know what else she can do? While we were deep in the MCU, we talked a lot about Endgame and which scenes made us cry.  Was it when Hawkeye lost his family? Or when Thor saw his mom?  Or, what about when Tony Stark left us?  There were so many opportunities to shed a tear, and we talked about most of them!  

Our featured actor this week was John Leguizamo, and all of our favorites movies that feature him.  There are so many that we enjoyed!  Somehow, as is our thing to do, we jumped back to fan of the pod, Keanu Reeves, and how much we all love him.  Not only do his movies rock, but he seems to also as a person!  What are your favorite Keanu or John Leguizamo movies?

Episode 159 - That’s a Bat Idea

Welcome to Episode 159 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, Mitch and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek.

Denver Pop Culture Con (formerly Denver Comic Con) has just ended and Matt Orrin talks about some of the finer moments for him, such as seeing Dave Bautista, Tom Wilson, and Christopher Lloyd.  The panels were fun and informative!  We moved on to DC and started talking all kinds of news, such as Robert "shimmery vampire" Pattinson as the new Dark Knight.  Hopefully, this one doesn't sparkle at night!  Are they gonna start to connect DC properties to the DCU?  This could help change the way actors take jobs and their contracts.  Speaking of which, Swamp Thing got cancelled ONE WEEK after it premiered.  Can you believe that?  We don't know why but there is lots of false rumors spreading around. 

Good Omens is on Amazon and its hot!  David Tennant is wonderful as Crowley and the interaction between him and Aziraphale, played by Michael Sheen, is delightful.  If you aren't familiar with this book/show, check out both.  You won't be disappointed.  This leads us into talks about all of the streaming services available and their content.  Who will survive the streaming service wars?

Again, the Darkwing Duck origin episode of Duck Tales is discussed and it is STILL fabulous!  Seriously, you'd be hard pressed to find a better written show.  And then, much like our normal way of doing things we switch over to cars.  Why?  Well, some geeks love cards and Jake loves Fords.  Whats your favorite Ford?

Episode 158 - That’s Ducked Up!

Welcome to Episode 158 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 splinter group of Geeks (Mitch and Matt Orrin) are joined by Evan Johnson at Aunt May's house, to discuss all things geek.

Matt Orrin saw Godzilla at a sneak preview, and then raced over to Aunt May's house to talk about it!  There shouldn't be any spoilers, though that depends on how sensitive you are.  Besides, what kind of spoilers could you really have in a monster film like that?  Just know that there are a lot of monsters shown, or mentioned in the movie!  The movie was fun and the Geeks talk about those kinds of movies, specifically about how big they must be.  For example, how big is King in his movies?  Turns out, he has been different sizes in all of the different iterations but we feel if he will face Godzilla in the future, he'd need to be at least 180 ft, or 60 meters.  

Duck Tales continues to impress and the last episode is no exception to that.  It is a Darkwing Duck origin story, but it combines many important elements to it.  Struggling aging actor trying to stay relevant in the role that made him, needing control over all aspects of the character and having a hard time adapting to change.  In all honesty, this episode deserves to win writing awards because it is incredibly well done!  If you haven't seen any other episodes, you should at least watch this episode and you'll be glad you did.

Netflix.  Can it survive the storm that Disney+ will bring with it?  Let's hope because their content has been real great, and we discuss some of their offerings such as Umbrella Academy and Tuca & Bertie.  With their acquisition of at least one movie theater, and maybe more in the future, they can set themselves up nicely to still exist in the Disney apocalypse. What kind of seating would they have in their theaters?  Did you know that a theater in Sweden has all beds that you can watch movies from?  Would you fall asleep?  Of course, this topic gets discussed.

After Doom Patrol (of course!), we shift to a story about a man and his dog...or multiple dogs!  That's right, we're talking about John Wick which might be a favorite Keanu Reeves movie!  We talk about our favorite movies of his, and there are so many to choose from! What is your favorite?

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?
