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.
