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?

Episode 168 - Skillverine

Welcome to Episode 168 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, Chris Baker and Matt Orrin) are joined by Josh Skillman, and are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

D23 just passed and we were ALL a buzz over the news!!  So much Disney stuff to talk about, especially since they own everything these days.  Firstly, we had to talk about the Sony Marvel news, in which Spiderman will become disconnected from the MCU as a result of Feige not having involvement.  Disney wants a huge chunk (half!?) of earnings from the next Spiderman movie, as well as involvement in a Venom movie.  The question is:  Can Sony make a movie without Marvels help and still make a ton of money?  Based on past movies, it doesn't seem too likely.  Venom did fine, but Spidey must have ridden on the coattails of Endgame to pull in the kinds of numbers it did.  All other Sony superhero movies have pretty much flopped. 

Marvel on the other hand has a great track record of making superhero stuff, and it looks like more is on the way.  Between the shows coming to Disney+, and new movies coming out such as Eternals, we should be good for years to come.  They are also making a She-Hulk, which makes some (Matt Orrin) wonder if its be like Jessica Jones, but with less alcohol. We will also get more diversity, other than green, with the first muslim superhero, Ms. Marvel.  The Geeks are excited about that! We're also spreading the rumor that Nathan Fillion might play Booster Gold, though it DOES seem likely.  Fingers crossed!!

Ok, Star Wars.  New footage released, shows a darker Rey with a badass, RED switchblade lightsaber.  We continue to discuss her lineage...word is that she might be Hans daughter, but with another woman.  Qira from the movie Solo seems the most likely.  We also talk about the Mandalorian, which is shaping up to be interesting.  We talk about its time placement, and which bounty hunters we might see.  It looked like IG-88 in the picture, but who knows?  We also know that Ewan Mcgregor is back as Obi Wan, and Jeff was geeked about that!

Episode 167 - Jeff Never Took Math!

Welcome to Episode 167 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 Trio (Jeff, Jake, and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

A shortened group we were, but the content is still solid!  We started talking about Mind Hunters, which just released its second season.  We focused on the new AD on the show, which is some bald guy that has been on other shows we watch, like Fringe.  He's really good, as is the show.  Something enjoyable about watching shows on serial killers.

Next up: animation!  Apparently, Kevin Smith is working on a new He-Man cartoon, which might be related to the new She-Ra cartoon.  Its probably gonna be solid with Kevin Smith behind the wheel.  What about the old He-Man though, does it still hold up?  According to Jake, it doesn't!  None of the shows do, it sounds like.  Though the Transformers movie of old was solid, it should hold up nicely.

Jake leaves, but Jeff and Matt Orrin keep the talks alive with some more Mind Hunters, but also DCU vs Disney+.  A question came up, specifically whether the DCU shows were better than the Netflix Marvel shows.  Thats a toughie!!  Both have a different feel to them, though Matt Orrin feels the DCU shows are better at keeping the style of the comics, especially with the film quality.  We discussed where DC cities exist on a map, though for the longest time they used only made up cities.  How will Netflix hold up when the streaming wars happen?  Keep listening to find out!

Episode 166 - Namor Pyle

Welcome to Episode 166 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 Trio (Jeff, Mitch, and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

We start off with something we've never fully delved into...coffee!  Apparently, Jeff drank enough coffee that day to kill a large animal but he made it through the episode.  He shared all his knowledge from training about different ways to treat the bean and make coffee, labeling the segment Broadcast Beans.  It was very informative.  Somehow, as is our way, it provided a lead in to Jessica Jones.  We all agree that Trish sucks.  Not the actress, but the character portrayal.  Shes just an annoying character and despite that, the show was real good.  

Jeff has been on a big Documentary kick, excluding all his other shows to absorb as much Documentary as he can.  Of course, we talked about the Flat Earther one for a bit because the psychology of the people involved is interesting.   There is also one about a guy, Bob Lazar, who supposedly worked on top secret programs involving aliens.  He is discredited for "making up" stories and work history, but there are all kinds of clues out there which indicate he might be telling the truth.  The truth is out there!

We talk our usual MCU chatter, this time predicting the future of the franchise.  We think Galactus will have a major role, which could mean Silver Surfer, which could mean the Fantastic Four, which would hopefully lead us to Doom.  Doctor Doom, that is.  There is also some speculation about Namor, the Sub-Mariner, showing up possibly in Black Panther 2. 

We'd be remiss if we didn't talk DC especially because they seem to be killin it when it comes to non movies.  Their animation is superb and their TV programming is great!  They got it going on, for sure.  We finished with determining who would be the best Bat successor, since some news recently dropped about it being Damien.  We all agree that Terry McGinnis, of Batman Beyond, would be the best successor.

Episode 165 - The Tricycle of Justice

Welcome to Episode 165 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 Trio (Jake, Mitch, and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

After a week off, we start off with technical difficulties but we persevered and here we are!  Andy Serkis comes up first because he's directing the next Venom movie.  Who is the villain in it?  Could it be a Sinister Six character, or are they keeping it separate from the rest of the Universe?  We list through some Spidey villains

DC is killing it, not quite like the MCU, but in their own way with a lot of different properties.  They are very loyal to their stars and are bringing back old actors for the upcoming Crisis Crossover this fall.  Kevin Conroy will be doing the voice of old man Bruce Wayne with hopefully a Batman Beyond.  Will he be visiblly voicing Bruce, or just hear his voice.  Can't wait to find out!!  Speaking of Batman Beyond, Jake tells us how it was a knockoff of Spiderman.  

How long could a movie be?  Could you make a movie as long as the Crisis event will be, and would people stay in a theater to see it?  If they did a 12 hour marathon, what would you stay for?  We talk about the longest movie ever made, called Ambiance.  It is 30 days long and the teaser for it is one hour and twelve minutes long!!

Episode 164 - American History Hulk

Welcome to Episode 164 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 Sinister Six (Jeff, Jake, Mitch, Nate Balding, Matt Orrin and Chris Baker!!) are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

The Sinister Six has assembled to take on the new Marvel threat...Phase 4!  This topic will be discussed for weeks, maybe months and it gets some time on this episode.  A list of movies and shows, connecting to each other, for the next 2 years between theaters and the Disney+ streaming service.  Gonna see a Hawkeye show, hopefully based on the Matt Fraction comics, and a show called WandaVision on the service, though first in theaters is a Scarlet Witch movie.  Also, a scary Doctor Strange movie and, kung fu movie hero, Shang Chi are on the lineup for Phase 4.  SO MUCH MARVEL!  

First, however, we talked Star Trek.  Specifically, the new Picard show coming out on CBS All Access in the Fall.  Jean-Luc is back, and he has some of his old friends to hang out with including Data, Riker and Troi.  Jeri Ryan is also back.  Has she ever met Picard before?  Do they know each other because they were both part of the Collective?  Lots of questions and excitement for this show!

Truly first, however, was Duck Tales because that takes precedence and when Jake brought up some great news then the crew needed to stop everything else and hear it out!  Sounds like Disney is building up their cartoon output, in a Disney Cartoon Universe, where Duck Tales will be bringing everything else to the fold.  We've already gotten DarkWing, which should be built up in the next season, but in a released poster there is Chip & Dale in the bottom corner.  Also, it looks like Kit is all growned up on his air foil with the Sea Duck above him leading up to a TaleSpin.  

We talk a bunch of different things, like Midsommer and Horror films.  Marvel also announced a new Blade, which is also super exciting.

Episode 163 - What Was His Name?

Welcome to Episode 163 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 Trio (Jake, Mitch and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm to discuss all things geek. 

After a week of technical difficulties where we lost a Spiderman spoiler episode to Thanos, we return to spoil the new webslinger movie.  We don't give too many details but we definitely discuss the post credit scene and its implications of the next phase of the MCU.  With the recent announcement of a new Thor movie, it looks like Chris Hemsworth is happy to stay aboard on this crazy ride.  We wonder how deep into the next phase he will be, as we still don't fully know the direction Marvel will be taking.  It does seem as if they will continue to have creative control over the next Spiderman movie because Far From Home is close to breaking the billion dollar mark, which seemed to be a stipulation between Marvel and Sony.  Regardless, it benefits everyone to have this union between the two studio houses. 

On the DC side, we talk about how we will consume DCU after the new WarnerMedia streaming service, HBO Max, is released.  Will it be an a la carte service so we can buy pieces or will we have to get ALL of HBO Max to enjoy it?  We assume we could just get the parts we want but we'll have to wait till next year to find out.  Then we imagine a Batman Beyond movie, and talk about who would play the old Bruce Wayne.  While conventional thought is Michael Keaton is perfect for the role in many ways, Jake suggests Kevin Conroy for the role and it just makes sense.  We all agree that when we read Batman, his voice is what we hear for the Dark Knight as Mark Hamill is what we hear when we read Joker.  Kevin Conroy IS our Batman!

Netflix is still going strong with their content, and there is lots of clamour about Stranger Things.  Mitch gives his opinions on Stranger Things, despite not finishing the 3rd season yet.  How much longer can this franchise go on?  Will they be able to maintain their hold when the other big streaming services release in the next year?  Stay tuned to find out!

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?
