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.

Episode 140 - Magneto Appleseed

Welcome to Episode 140 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 Carlos Madrid and are back in the space formerly inhabited by Sexpot Comedy, right above Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

We talked more Titans, because it SO GOOD!!  Seriously, this show has been delivering each week and it's gonne suck when the season is done.  Will Dick become Nightwing this season?  Who is the big bad?  Did Starfire just kill Raven?  We assume the answer to that one is no, but the show made it seem like its a possibility.  This last episode introduced Wonder Girl, Donna Troy, and mentioned both Wonder Woman and the Justice League.  

We're also excited for the upcoming CW crossover event, Elseworlds, which will introduce some new characters such as Batwoman and Lois Lane.  We know a little about the crossover, and talk as in depth as possible.  We also got news that they casted the role of Renee Montoya (aka the Question) in the new Birds of Prey movie filming next year.  Hopefully, DC can start making movies as good as their TV.  

Marvel, on the other hand, has no problem with their movies.  The new Captain Marvel trailer just dropped and we paused recording to watch it.  We've all seen it multiple times since because it looks real good.  We talk more about the character that Jude Law is playing, which is not the possibly hinted at Mar-vell.  Unfortunately, they wont be including any of the Netflix characters especially since Daredevil was just cancelled.  That leaves Punisher and Jessica Jones, both of which will probably be cancelled after their next seasons.  If they ever did use those characters, would they recast them?  We hope not with some, especially Punisher.  

It almost Christmas time, and Duck Tales (Woo Ooo) just had a great Christmas episode.  Turns it that Scrooge doesn't hate Christmas, its just his only day off each year and he wants to unwind with his buds, which happen to be the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.  This brought up everyones favorite version of the Christmas Carol.  Some say Scrooged, others say the Mickey Mouse version.  What is your definitive version?

We ended with discussion on the Caped Crusader, and his fighting prowess.  We wondered if Dick has ever fought Batman for any reason and, if so, could he beat Batman?  Could Batman beat Daredevil, or even Iron Fist, in a fight?  Listen and find out our thoughts!

Episode 139 - Does Wolverine Have the Stones?

Welcome to Episode 139 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 trio of Geeks (Jeff, Jake and Matt Orrin) are joined by Carlos Madrid and are back in the space inhabited by Sexpot Comedy, right above Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

 

It's all about Titans again this week as this show continues to rock!  We're seeing a much darker Dick Grayson work his anger out, and get him closer to Nightwing.  We don't know if he'll change during this season, but it is definitely going to happen at some point.  The upcoming (current?) episode will introduce Donna Troy.  We discuss her place in the world of DC, and how she compares to her more "adult" counterpart, Wonder Woman.  We also talk about the upcoming Swamp Thing as this remains high on our interest list.

We then talk about Venom and its worldwide financial success, especially for not being the next movie released in the last few years.  It's getting close to hitting $1billion!!  What does that mean for Spiderman going away from Sony and back to Marvel?  Well, it doesn't look that good.  If they can make a Spidey related movie, WITHOUT Spiderman, with this much success then who knows what they will continue to do.  The new Spiderman game came up next and it is so much fun.  Do you prefer to play games on Console or PC?  This could be a hotbed topic for the Geeks!

The CW-verse takes over the discussion next, and we talked about our favorite shows right now.  Arrow seems to be atop the heap for another week.  We're ALL anticipating the upcoming crossover event, Elseworlds, especially with the new trailer CW released.  We cannot wait to see Batwoman make her appearance.  Legends of Tomorrow, while not part of the crossover, is also worth the watch.  They have been doing a lot of fun, magical, stuff.  

We finish up with Sylvester Stallone and the next Rocky based movie, Creed 2.  This movie appears to be a double sequel, one to Rocky 4 and also to the first Creed movie.  Regardless, we're pretty excited to see Dolph Lundgren once again on the screen, big or little.  We started naming our favorite Sly films, as there are plenty of really good ones.  Which is your favorite?

Episode 138 - Curtis Has Terrific Balls!

Welcome to Episode 138 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 a trio of Geeks (Jeff, Jake and Matt Orrin) are back in the space inhabited by Sexpot Comedy, right above Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

Talk started with Titans, only available on the DC Universe streaming service.  This show has been great and we talked a lot about it.  The last episode featured Jason Todd, who appears to have some issues.  Was he a rebound for Batman after Dick leaves him?  We're looking forward to the Doom Patrol show, especially after their appearance on Titans.  We're also looking forward to Swamp Thing, which could change EVERYTHING in the comic book world we all love.  Will Constantine show up on the show?  Will there be other magic users such as Zatanna?  Guess we'll have to wait and find out.

Talk of villians led us to the topic of modern day villians, such as Jeff Bezos.  He appears to be our version of Lex Luthor, bald head and all!  Hopefully, Elon Musk doesn't follow suit and continues to do the cool things he is doing.  Someone will need the resources to take down Bezos, and Elon could be the one to do it.  Speaking of villians, we switched over to the topic of Gifted and some of its high profile characters such as Lorna aka Polaris.  As the daughter of Magneto, will she take on his mantle?  Word is that she will put on the cool Magneto helmet.  Also, can the Strucker dad burn himself with his lava hands?  We talked about whether or not mutants can be effected by their own powers.  What are your thoughts?

Next up we talk about the CW shows, with Arrow still being on top.  Though, how does "evil" Laurel know how to do her job of DA?  She wasnt a lawyer, so is it something anyone can do?  We also talked about Curtis, aka Mr. Terrific, and how terrific his balls are.  His character is starting to get good again.  The other shows have been pretty good, with Black Lightning really turning it up. 

Our featured actor this week was John Ritter, starting with his role in the original IT.  He was a very underappreciated actor and had some really good roles.  Then we were all over the board talking about Agents of Shield, Flash Gordon, and Harry Potter.  Give it a listen and tell us what you think.   

 

Some episodes of Broadcast Geeks are recorded at the Comedy RoomRoom inside of El Charrito at 2104 Larimer Street in the heart of Denver’s ballpark neighborhood. Make sure to visit for brunch on Sunday’s at Denver’s only 5-Star Dive Bar.

Episode 137 - I’m the Man, Stan!

Welcome to Episode 137 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 in the space inhabited by Sexpot Comedy, right above Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

The Man known for bringing us many of our favorite Marvel comic book characters, Stan Lee, has finally left this mortal coil.  He passed away on the day we recorded this episode, and we gave him a rightful tribute.  We talked about our favorite characters, his impact on the comic world, and which was his best Marvel movie cameo.  Which is your favorite?  We also talked about the haters out there, those that talk trash about him.  We acknowledge that some people, such as Steve Ditko, might have gotten a raw deal.  No one is perfect, especially Stan Lee, but his contributions cannot be ignored.  

Afterwards, we went to our usual discussions about what we are watching.  Gifted has been pretty great lately, with a loss of a pretty cool character.  The CW shows have been good also, though it is hard to imagine that Arrow is top of the heap again!  Even though it isn't on CW, Sabrina is tied to the universe.  They have been getting some heat lately as the Satanic Temple is suing them over use of a statue.  

Disney is still working on their streaming service, set to release next year.  It sounds like their programming is gonna be pretty nuts!  Star wars shows, Marvel shows featuring Loki and Scarlet Witch.  Sounds like one more service we'll need to be subscribers of!  In the meantime, Disney has new Duck Tales episodes available and they are HIGHLY recommended.  That show is so good for all ages, and hopefully they'll put it on the streaming service.  

Speaking of streaming services, DC Universe has been killing it lately.  The live action Titans show has been a lot of fun, and a little dark.  This last episode introduces a NEW Robin, presumably Jason Todd.  We cannot wait to see how the two Robins interact.  Will Dick finally take on the mantle of Nightwing, or does he still need time?  If you haven't watched the show yet, you really should.  They also introduced the Doom Patrol, who are set to get their own show. 

We finish up with movie talk starting with Creed 2, the next movie in the Rocky universe.  How many Rocky movies does that make it?  We list them all, as well as our favorite parts and also our favorite of the movies.  Do you prefer Rocky 3, with Clubber Lang, or Ivan Drago, in Rocky 4?  We also talk about the next monster movie in the making, Godzilla vs King Kong.  That should be very exciting! 

Some episodes of Broadcast Geeks are recorded at the Comedy RoomRoom inside of El Charrito at 2104 Larimer Street in the heart of Denver’s ballpark neighborhood. Make sure to visit for brunch on Sunday’s at Denver’s only 5-Star Dive Bar.

Episode 136 - The Daily Bog

Welcome to Episode 136 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 full assemblage of Geeks (Mitch, Jeff, Nate, Jake and Matt Orrin) are in the nether region of Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

 

Daredevil is out on Netflix, and more of us have been watching.  We talk more about the second season, focusing on the great acting and choreography.  The Marvel Netflix shows have great villains and supporting characters.   Speaking of supporting characters, Dave Bautista has done an awesome job, especially as Drax in Guardians.  He was also a real good wrestler and apparently a really cool, shy, guy as demonstrated on a different podcast some of us listen to. We started talking about other wrestlers and how they came off in their day.  Whats your oldest memory of wrestlers when you first started following?  Possibly as a sign of the times, WE Geeks got political.  Do you think its OK that the WWE is still doing their show in Saudia Arabia?  We talk about the possible implications.  Tell us what you think.

Our TV shows are back in full swing, and we talked about them.  John Constantine, played by actor Matt Ryan, is starting to shine for DC.  He's a regular on Legends of Tomorrow, and he's doing the voice for animated shows.  Will he appear on the new Swamp Thing show, soon to hit the DC Universe service?  Will they connect those shows to the CW?   Stay tuned to find out!

If you haven't already checked out Denver Open Media, and what they have offered then go to https://www.denveropenmedia.org  As you might already know, we'll be on Tuesday nights at 10pm.  Some episodes of Broadcast Geeks are recorded at the Comedy RoomRoom inside of El Charrito at 2104 Larimer Street in the heart of Denver’s ballpark neighborhood. Make sure to visit for brunch on Sunday’s at Denver’s only 5-Star Dive Bar.

Episode 135 - Mary Ponzi Scheme

Welcome to Episode 135 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, Nate, Jake and Matt Orrin) are joined by Monica Nevi, a comic and film maker based out of Los Angeles, at the Sexpot Comedy Studios located above the awesome Mutiny Information Cafe for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

Monica, much like Jeff, is a big basketball fan so we talked a lot about the NBA and the WNBA.  We talked about the greatness of old teams, the movement of teams like the Seattle Supersonics, and her documentary webseries 80 for 80. On it, she interviews octogenarians with sports related questions.   Well, you can't talk about sports, like basketball, without mentioning Space Jam.  Monica shared her favorite line from that movie, which involved a conversation between Bill Murray and Michael Jordan.  Could we see more basketball related movies, or TV shows?  Maybe we could get a new channel, such as The CWNBA?  

Daredevil season 3 has been released on Netflix and the man with no fear definitely doesn't disappoint this time around, neither does Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.  This all happened at the same time that Netflix dropped Iron Fist, and Luke Cage, from their roster of shows.  The last came as a surprise to all, and we throw our thoughts out on why this happened.  Is it because of Disney releasing their own streaming service in the near future?  Does it have to do with ratings?  Listen to find out.

Matt Orrin just got back from the Telluride Horror Show, a horror film festival set in one of the most beautiful parts of Colorado, and talks about the fun times he had.  He met Stephen Chiodo, director of Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and even hung out with him over the weekend.  They were Festies!  There were a lot of fun, and some scary, movies at the fest and they talked about one call Mega Time Squad, which allows a person with the cursed amulet to create a copy of himself and go back in time.  Not exactly like Madrox, the Multiple Man, but that led to interesting conversations about him.  How many copies can he make of himself, and does he lose strength and power with each copy?  If you could copy yourself, how many would YOU need to get through each day?  We put the magic number at around 3-4 copies.  

We finish up with the regular topics, such as CW shows, comic books, new movies, and Clint Howard.  We also talk about the new Halloween movie, which Nate saw and enjoyed.  He talks about it but there are no big spoilers.  

 

If you havent already checked out Denver Open Media, and what they have offered then go to https://www.denveropenmedia.org  As you might already know, we'll be on Tuesday nights at 10pm.  Some episodes of Broadcast Geeks are recorded at the Comedy RoomRoom inside of El Charrito at 2104 Larimer Street in the heart of Denver’s ballpark neighborhood.

Episode 134 - Fins of Anarchy

Welcome to Episode 134 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 joined by Apples, a Comedian from northern Colorado, at the Sexpot Comedy Studios located above the awesome Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

 

Venom is in theatres and some of us went to see it with funny man Apples.  Can they make an entertaining, functional Spider-man based "villian" film without the webslinging hero?  It appears that they did!  We all pretty much liked it, though it had some trouble spots.  It seemed no one dug the Eminem song at the end, but you decide for yourself.  However, it is top of the box office for two weeks in a row, so it might have staying power...like a turd in the wind.  

We couldn't just talk about Venom, as there is a WHOLE world of content out there! Some of it is spooky, like clowns.  We talked about that clown from Poltergeist and Apples taking Mitch ghost hunting.  Listen to hear what they found on their hunt.  We also created a new show, Poltergeists & Pies which has the participant baking for a spirit, trying to figure out what baked good they might want.  

Onto the DC Universe, we talked about the new Aquaman trailer and Jake noticed Sea Bikers, riding on giant sea horses.  Fins of Anarchy!  Also, James Gunn seems to be coming over to DC to work on Suicide Squad.  This could be very exciting if it really happens.  Titans is now officially out on DC Universe streaming service, so make sure to check THAT out!

Apples is apparently a big Transformers fan, from back in the day, so we needed to talk about that Bumblebee trailer.  Its weird having a movie about a peripheral character, but we will say that the old-school look of robots was great!  Bumblebeem, Soundwave and Optimus Prime look like they should, and that makes this very exciting.  The original Michael Bay Transformers movies have merit but this new movie seems to lack the Bay-os of those films.  

If you havent already checked out Denver Open Media, and what they have offered then go to https://www.denveropenmedia.org  As you might already know, we'll be on Tuesday nights at 10pm.  Some episodes of Broadcast Geeks are recorded at the Comedy RoomRoom inside of El Charrito at 2104 Larimer Street in the heart of Denver’s ballpark neighborhood. Make sure to visit for brunch on Sunday’s at Denver’s only 5 Star Dive Bar.
