Episode 130 - DCU gets NO respect

September 2, 2018

Welcome to Episode 130 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 recorded at the Sexpot Comedy Studios, located above the awesome Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

We started off talking about the upcoming DCU, which is available to everyone on September 15th.  We have high expectations for this network, based on all the cool shows being advertised, and even though their movie output has been "slightly" disappointing.  Hopefully Aquaman is good enough to ease the load that Wonder Woman has been carrying for DC!  Out of curiousity, what Frat would you be a part of if YOU were at DCU?  Listen for our choices.

Who is in the new Star Wars movie??  Yes, Doctor Who Matt Smith was cast a role in the upcoming Episode IX movie.  We'll continue to speculate his purpose until we find out for sure.  Since we're already talking Star Wars, Baker gets us caught up on some of his friends experiences at Dragon Con, which just wrapped up.  Hey, remember Alf?  He's back...in POG form.  No, not really (yet?) but some of us watched episodes of the old Alf TV show and it still holds up!  Regardless. it sounds like they are rebooting Alf, or at least bringing him back in some capacity.  This led us to discussing the genius of Jim Henson, and the talented crew of puppeteers and writers that helped create the Muppet-verse.  His contributions to the world could never be measured, or equalled.  Can you imagine a gritty reboot of Super Gonzo?  *fingers crossed*

What's your favorite Schwarzenegger film?  The list it great, it could be one of so many!  Commando, Raw Deal, Last Action Hero, Kindergarten Cop or True Lies to name a few.  If Predator is your choice, then get pumped up because there is a new Predator movie coming out which apparently features a super Predator.  Stay tuned for more on that!

Dormam-who?  You know who, which leads us to wrapping up with the MCU, and the new phase after the upcoming Avengers movie.  We speculate all night long, even after we're done with this recording. Why did Thanos come to Earth at this time?  Was it because Odin finally died, along with some other key players in the MCU?  Could he have used a different garment for the stones, such as an Infinity Boxers?   They'd probably chafe a bit, and then what would he do to activite it?  You can use your imagination.
