Episode 212 - Is the Magic Gone?

Welcome to Episode 212 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things pop culture provided that our DVR’s have space and our streaming accounts are paid up.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jake, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek.

Another episode, and another long winded discussion on the MCU.  Can they sustain the magic that has captivated us for the last 10+ years with the next phases?  This next phase is headed up by magic and the Multiverse.  Who will be the big bad in these upcoming movies?  There was also a cool theory about how the X-Men could be introduced, mostly from the world that Wanda created on her show...yes, think about that.

Episode 211 - Pulling an Albrighter!

Welcome to Episode 211 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things pop culture provided that our DVR’s have space and our streaming accounts are paid up.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jake, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek.

Mitch is binging Amazon Prime!  He has a month trial and is absorbing as much of their content as possible, which is to our benefit.  He watched the Tick and tell us what he thinks, which leads us all to talk about what we know of the Tick, from the comic book, to the cartoon, to the Warburton show, to the current version!  Which is your favorite?

In the Star Wars universe, we have Bad Batch which is essentially the A-Team in space.  Well, thats what it sounds like with the newest cartoon to hit the stream, involving some failed clones that aren't up to code...or something.

This was a special live episode and we were joined by Anthony Crawford. who always has the best questions, and Scoop Jenson, out of NYC.  Scoop is a long time fan and regular guest, while also being a Hollywood insider.  We had some great discussions, especially about which Superman has been the best.  Is it Cavill?   Does he get a bad rap because the movies weren't very good, despite him being good in the role? We also talked about the Golden Age of TV ending. Do you agree?

Episode 209 - Broadcast Leaks

Welcome to Episode 209 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things pop culture provided that our DVR’s have space and our streaming accounts are paid up.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jake, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek.

The band is back!  Jake joins us for more talk about Falcon & Winter Soldier, and some possible implications for the future of the MCU.  Is Chris Evans gonna reprise his role at some point, helping to align the next phase and are we gonna see Jackman as the Wolverine?  Are we gonna see Dark Avengers with John Walker and Val?

Before Jakes tells us his sadness from reading the TMNT books, on which he ruined with his tears, we talk about Tom Hanks and his brother.  Apparently he is one of a group of Hollywood siblings that fills in for his brother in voicework and select video spots.  How crazy is that?  Then again, are you really listening to US when you listen to the podcast? Hmmm....

Episode 207 - Time Patrol Squad (Snyder Cut Part 2)

Welcome to Episode 207 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things pop culture provided that our DVR’s have space and our streaming accounts are paid up.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek.

We're back to finish our review on the second half of the 4-hour beast that is Zack Snyder's Justice League. Matt was a little less enthused about it than in the previous episode but overall we come to the conclusion that it was better than the 2017 version, although that isn't a hard bar to clear. Some of the stuff didn't make sense at all, even if it was cool to include a Martian Manhunter cameo. There's also a bit of non-spoilery talk on The Falcon and The Winter Solider as well as Godzilla vs. Kong. Mitch also recommends watching Shin Godzilla, a 2016 movie where Godzilla evolves like a giant, gross Pokémon throughout the narrative.

We spend almost the entirety of this episode discussing the first half of Zack Snyder's Justice League. This movie is so chock full of superhero antics that it cannot be contained to just one podcast! We talk about what we liked, what we didn't like, the changes made from the Joss Whedon version of the movie, and much more! At the end we briefly chat about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier before calling it a night. We'll be back to wrap this review up on the next episode! Same Bat Time, same Bat Channel!

Episode 205 - Marvel’s Got a Bohner!

Welcome to Episode 205 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things pop culture provided that our DVR’s have space and our streaming accounts are paid up.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek.

We had a slightly higher level of nostalgia this episode, where we talked about 80's & 90's movies.  One in particular was Grease 2, not necessarily a major hit but impactful nonetheless.  And it had a young Michelle Pfieffer!  This lead us to talk about best sequel, not including Empire.  Do you have a pick?

We couldn't go a week without mentioning Marvel, and even Ralph Bohner.  We focused on their current direction, specifically with Falcon & the Winter Soldier, now out on Disney+, and how that might end up.  Also, how can Sam catch the shield when he throws it?  Its made out of Vibranium and he isn't superpowered, like Cap or Bucky.  Guess we'll all have to watch and find out!

Episode 204 - The Scarlet Mitch

Welcome to Episode 204 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things pop culture provided that our DVR’s have space and our streaming accounts are paid up.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek.

Wandavision has ended and man, was there a lot to talk about.  At least half of this episode was spent discussing the ending, of which was a sensitive topic amongst the Geeks.  We were split on the ending; half of us really liked it and the other half was put off by it.  Not the show, just the ending.  So many questions!!  What happens to Vision?  Where does Wanda go from here?  Will they be together again?  All of the inside stuff and fan theories were shot down and put to rest, such as the Pietro from the X-Men movies.  What a Bohner!

We continue the talks about MCU stuff, especially the upcoming Thor movie.  We also talk Samuel Jackson and his movies.  This was a fun episode!

Episode 203 - Discs & Balls

Welcome to Episode 203 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things pop culture provided that our DVR’s have space and our streaming accounts are paid up.  This week, the Geeks (Mitch, Jeff and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek.

Another episode, and we are still talking about Gina Carano's release, but now we have more info.  We know who she will be replaced with, or at least what character will take more of a spotlight.  We spend little time on it though, because with Wandavision there is so much more to talk about!  The MCU has a bunch of movies coming out that might ALL be connected.  Both Spidey and Dr. Strange are dealing with the multiverse, and Wanda should have a big role in Dr. Strange.  

Last, we discuss Burt Reynolds and his movies.  Many seem to revolve around a bootlegging theme, or at lest some of his finest works.  What's your favorite Burt Reynold's film?
