Episode 178 - Lil Yod & R2-2020

Welcome to Episode 178 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, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are back in the space known as Davey Jones Locker, formerly known as the Quantum Realm, to discuss all things geek. 

Nate Balding is back!  He returns to talk about different movies, such as Knives Out, and our usual geek related shows.  Once again, the Mandalorian and Star Wars talk take up a big chunk!  We get caught up on the events of everyones favorite new masked man, along with his little green sidekick.  Did Boba make an appearance on the latest episode?  Well, we dont actually see him but Jeff is pretty confident. 

Watchmen is progressing nicely and this latest installment features Dr. Manhattan, and gives a little bit of insight into him and his character.  This show is nuts!  The characters are cool, the story is heavy, and its got some good production.  

Crisis starts this week on CW, first with Supergirl.  This is an exciting time of year, with the CW crossover event and we're all excited for it!  Some of us plan to wait till its all over so we can binge, but others don't have that level of self control.  Do you?

Episode 177 - Dis(ney) is the Way!

Welcome to Episode 177 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 space known as Davey Jones Locker, formerly known as the Quantum Realm, to discuss all things geek. 

The Mandalorian is dominating our lives, or at least most of us!  Mitch is still holding out with his own private rebellion against the Disney Empire.  Fix the damn Simpsons people, so Mitch can partake in the glory of Disney+.  I have spoken!  

Joe Pesci and Danny Glover were the featured actors that we discussed, and we went through our faves of each.  They both have a decent catalog, both starring in recent films.  Joe Pesci was in the Irishman, the newest Scorsese film that was most likely NOT seen in the theaters due to a limited run, and was released on Netflix.  Lot of controversy toward that movie, and we talk a bit about it.

Lastly, Jon Favreau has become movie gold...GOLD!  His catalog of acting/writing/directing/etc is impressive, you see how he has helped shaped modern movies crossing over from Marvel to Sony (Spider-man) and now The Mandalorian.  Full Circle.  Give it a listen!

Episode 176 - Attack of the Conch

Welcome to Episode 176 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), joined by Roger Norquist, are back in the space known as Davey Jones Locker, formerly known as the Quantum Realm, to discuss all things geek. 

With Disney+ in our lives (not Mitch's!!) its hard to talk about anything else!  We spent the majority of this episode talking about the Mandalorian and the greater Star Wars universe.  What's up with that Yodito?  Is he a clone of Yoda, or an offspring?  We know so little about his race so it's all speculation.  However, we know it's about 50 years old, which would put him back to the time when Anakin was "conceived".  Coincidence?

We also talked more about the Joker movie, which Jake and Jeff highly recommend despite its "dirty" feel.  We also discuss whether or not we should expect to see that Joker appear in the new Batman movie.  It sounds like they might be doing a Long Halloween, at least based on the number of villains they have already casted.  Having a Joker in there would be great!

Lastly, Jake talks about the TMNT reunion of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird on the documentary, Toys that Make Us.  He was really excited, and a bit touched, about how they were gonna work on #100 issue of TMNT together in the future.  This shows balance in the Force!

Episode 175 - The Vague Escape

Welcome to Episode 175 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 Geek Power Trio (Mitch, Jake, and Matt Orrin) are back in the space known as Davey Jones Locker, formerly known as the Quantum Realm, to discuss all things geek. 

Another week, and apparently we're gonna get another season of Titans!  That show has been consistently good and we're all glad that it will get another season.  We do a slight recap and then talk a bit about HBO Max, which will also cover the DCUniverse.  However, we don't know how it will be available though current HBO subscribers will get a free year of HBO Max.  

Speaking of HBO, the Watchmen has also been really good.  A familiar character makes her way to the show as an FBI agent, dealing with a town wrought with decades old racial tension.  Is the show a continuation of the comic books, or the movie?  Or a combination of both?  Watch and share your opinions with us.

By the time you are reading this, and listening, Disney+ would have already dropped.  Isn't it great?  Other than the few glitches on day one with network issues, it has been real good.  SO MUCH TO WATCH!  Check out the Mandalorian and let us know what you think.

Episode 174 - Star Wars: Oranges

Welcome to Episode 174 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 Geek Power Trio (Mitch, Jeff, and Matt Orrin) are back in the space known as Davey Jones Locker, formerly known as the Quantum Realm, to discuss all things geek. 

We start our discussion with the new show on HBO, The Watchmen, which is a continuation of the story  but takes place in modern day, though we aren't sure if it is after the comics or the Snyder movie.  We assume it is more from the comic because of the squid stuff in it, but hopefully we'll find out.  Either way, the show is pretty intense with some strong societal tones in it, such as racism.  Don Johnson gives a pretty solid performance, and all we know so far is that police are allowed to hide their faces for their safety.  Seems good so far, and it also starts our featured actor this episode, which is Louis Gossert Jr., beloved actor who starred in a lot of greatness from the 80's and 90's.  Movies like American Eagle and Enemy Mine are specific standouts.  

Disney Plus, and its content, probably dominated the episode because they are becoming the main source of entertainment content.  There is a lot of excitement for the new Mandalorian show, as there have been new trailers and information coming out.  The service starts on Nov 12, and we are all excited for it!   We jumped into other Star Wars information, such as Episode 9: Rise of the Skywalker.  We talk about who the Skywalker in question is, Rey's possibly parentage and Palpatines role in all of this.  

We talk Titans, because it continues to impress, especially with their casting of Esai Morales as Deadshot.  We recapped Stranger Things, which had such a fantastic 3rd season!  And last, Jeff told us about his favorite recent documentary, called Murder Mountain.  It chronicles these marijuana farmers in Humboldt County, and apparently all kinds of people end of dead.  That's a simplification, but you should probably check it out.

Episode 173 - The Righteous Geekstones

Welcome to Episode 173 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, & Jake) are joined by Piper Shepherd, in the space known as Davey Jones Locker, formerly known as the Quantum Realm, to discuss all things geek.

Another week with the Righteous Gemstones on the docket.  The never ending drama of everyone's favorite world-famous televangelist family continues to enthrall people, especially the Geeks.  With that much talent on the show, how could it not?

For the DC portion of the show, we talk about Titans.  Second season has been great, with all kinds of new characters being introduced and the Titans deadliest foe, Deathstroke, really asserting himself.  He's been a huge disruption in the lives of all the characters.  Conversation shifts to the NEW Batman movie, with potential casting such as Jonah Hill as the Riddler.  We discuss in more length.  

Star Wars has their latest trailer, and all jaws hit the floor!  There is a lot to unpack in this trailer, and we try to do it diligently.  So much excitement to contain!

Episode 172 - It was a Big Rock!

Welcome to Episode 172 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, Jake, and Matt Orrin) are back together, in the space known as Davey Jones Locker, formerly known as the Quantum Realm, to discuss all things geek. 

We start off the discussions with Jake and Mitch geeking out over the Righteous Gemstones, and its most recent episodes.  We slowly make our way over to Titans, which has a LOT going on.  We talked about Connor being on the show, and how they handled his origin.  He has the memories and abilities of both Lex and Clark, who are both his dads.  He has a bunch of mishaps and has interesting encounters.  Apparently his shirt is bulletproof because his wardrobe stays intact, despite the number of bullets show at him.  Must be nice, wonder what kind of material it is.  

The CW shows are working their way back, which means the Crisis is imminent!  We are SUPER excited for this year's CW crossover event, Final Crisis.  The sheer amount of people that will be on this crossover is a little outrageous, and we hope not in a bad way.  Actors from different DC related properties are expected to be in the event, though we don't know in what capacity.  Guess we'll ALL have to tune in!

Episode 171 - Uncle Baby Billy Butcher

Welcome to Episode 171 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 OG's (Mitch, Jeff, Jake, Nate and Matt Orrin) are back together, in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

Werewolf Radar lent us our old friend, and Original Geek, Nate Balding to record with us once again.  Mitch and Jake fill him in on The Righteous Gemstones, which is where we get this weeks title.  The show has a stellar cast and delivers the laughs, as awkward as they might be.  

We jump into the world of DC and it looks glorious!  Titans is back and its been great!  The conversation jumps to Crisis, which might be the most anticipated show of the year!  It signals the end of Arrow, but more importantly it might include a certain Terry McGinnis.  Hopefully the Bat Gods are on our side!

Disney+ is a couple of months away and we started talking about Marvel properties.  The Netflix characters are in some sort of stasis, which makes us think we might see more of them.  We're also expecting a Young Avengers show.  In fact, it seems like that streaming service will be offering a ton of content across different Disney spectrums, so keep those DVR's ready!

We'd be remiss if we neglected Duck Tales, so we talk about the finale of the last season.  The first Darkwing Duck episode, which establishes the Scroogeverse, is the finale and we're expecting a few other shows to spin off.  Sad news is that Launchpad will be leaving the show.  The good news is that Launchpad will be on the new Darkwing Duck!   Let's get dangerous.

Episode 170 - Being Johnny Mnemonic

Welcome to Episode 170 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, Jake and Matt Orrin) joined by Reese Jenniges, are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

Quentin Tarantino dominated the conversation for a while, listing of his films to determine his best one.  Hateful 8, Pulp Fiction, and Kill Bill get their due respect.  How could you talk about his movies without talking about his regular actors, such as Samuel L. Jackson and Walton Goggins...well, you can't so we did a plenty!

We talk Disney, because we are their slaves like Leia was to Jabba.  We talk about their inevitable cartoon hour and when would be good times to show certain shows, like Duck Tales!!  Apparently, they pushed out an entire season in 2 weeks, showing new episodes daily.  Jake drops a bomb shell about the last episode that gets Matt Orrin all aflutter. Let's get dangerous! 

Mitch watched Batman Beyond, and then shared that with us.  We talk basketball movies, comic books, and the Jetsons meeting the Flintstones.  Supposedly, they live way way way high in the sky, and down below on the ground (after the fallout???) is a prehistoric world with Fred and Barney.  Pretty wild, eh?

Episode 169 - Bachelor in ParaDePysh

Welcome to Episode 169 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, Mitch, Chris Baker and Matt Orrin) joined by Jeremy Pysher and Rebecca Robinson, are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

The table was full this week with guests and good conversation.  We talked Disney+ and also what shows will end up on there, hopefully including Duck Tales which has been releasing episodes every day it seems!!  The show is still so good and Jake breaks down the new episodes for us.  Disney+ is months away and some of us already have our subscriptions ready.  We talked a lot about a Lizzy McGuire reboot, then more about the generational differences of TV shows from our youths.

Next, Jake and Mitch were GEEKED out over a new show on HBO, Righteous Gemstones.  Anything with John Goodman is worth it, but this has a solid supporting cast.  Its about a family of Televangelists that get caught up in a sticky situation.  After switching to the return of Titans, we somehow end up on Reality shows, specifically Bachelor of Paradise.  Rebecca Robinson gives us her analysis of the show and why its so good. 

We wrap it up with a breakdown of the Joker film reactions, a film which doesn't come out for a month, or so.  Some of us are reluctant to see the movie in the theaters, due to the increasing number of weirdos and incels out there, ready to act on any whim.  A theory about how Open Mics are gonna be affected after the movies premieres, makes for an interesting discussion.  What are your thoughts on the movie?
