Episode 133 - Ted’s Dead, Baby…Ted’s Dead!

September 30, 2018

Welcome to Episode 133 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, Nate, Jake and Matt Orrin) recorded at the Sexpot Comedy Studios, located above the awesome Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

The conversation always seems to come back to Batman.  We brought up the Dark Knight multiple times on this episode, in different contexts.  I guess with him exposing himself in comics, he is BIG news!  Though you might see the Bat-dong in comics, you definitely won't see it in the new Titans show coming to our new favorite streaming service, DC Universe.  However, it appears that Batman will appear in the show and we saw pics of his potential suit.  We're excited for Titans, especially since we know that Dick Grayson meets Jason Todd.  Can there be two simultaneous Robins in the Bat-world?

Speaking of Batman (see??), we've been watching more of Batman: Brave and the Bold.  That show is awesome, as is Diedrich Bader's voice work.  The format of the show and the characters really make it excel.  Is it as good as the Animated Series?  Some would say it is, but in a different way.  BTW, you can catch Batman:TAS on DC Universe in HD, along with a bunch of really cool stuff.  We talked more about the old Flash show and then into which is our favorite Flash?  Do you prefer Barry Allen on the CW, Wally West from the Justice League cartoon, or even Wally from Young Justice?  There are many to choose from in the Multiverse...what's YOUR choice?

Our TV shows are coming back soon, with Gifted already out.  Things are getting hot on that show, and we suspect they might do a House of M type situation.  It also seems that the Dad is getting his powers back and, since he is a Von Strucker, he could be pretty powerful. The CW shows are back in October, and the this year's crossover, called Elseworlds, sounds like it will be AMAZING!!  We should see Batwoman, Lois Lane, and Superman and Nora Fries (wife of Dr. Freeze)!  Stay tuned for that to drop in early December.  

Looking for good shows to binge on Netflix?  American Vandal sounds real good, and Jake speaks highly of it especially the second season.  The first season is about a film crew solving the mystery of a vandal that draws dicks everywhere, and the second season is about the Mad Pooper, someone who commits a prank that forces the whole school to have bad diarrhea at the same time causing a panic.  Maybe they did it for revenge?  Watch to find out.  Speaking of revenge, Nate talks about Mandy, the new Nicholas Cage film.  He highly recommends it.
