Episode 190 - Was Porkins a Poor Pilot?

May 21, 2020

Welcome to Episode 190 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, Chris Baker and Matt Orrin) are virtually together to discuss all things geek. 

The Quarantine is still upon us, but that doesn't dampen our spirits...or our consumption of them!  It also hasn't stopped our viewing, which is good because there is definitely an abundance of shows to watch.  We start with Harley Quinn, as it is the most consistently fun show to watch right now.  It's well animated, well voiced, and consistent with the humor and violence.  DC has always had great animation, as we transitioned to JL Dark: Apocolips War, on the DCU.  It's a mashup of hero and villain groups taking on Darkseid and it looks pretty solid.  

Star Wars news!  Taika Waititi is slated to direct a Star Wars movie, which many of us are hoping doesn't involve a Skywalker.  Regardless, everything he does is real good so it is exciting!  Ever notice how everyone we "meet" in Star Wars is a great pilot?  Maybe not Porkins, but every other named pilot seems to be the best and has flown in some tight situations.  

Recommendations are thrown around the circle, especially with some of the documentaries like the Beastie Boys one on Apple+ and the Michael Jordan one.  However, some of us are catching up on shows that ended years ago like Breaking Bad.  What shows did you not watch when they were out originally but you are watching now?
