Welcome to Episode 148 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, Chris and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.
We start our episode off with Doom Patrol, the latest live action offering on DCU. It is a very non-conventional show, with weird characters, and it can be a lot of fun. We talk about the characters, their powers and possible offerings later in the season. We talk about the Titans connection as well.
Next, we jump to Marvel and specifically of the Captain variety. Jake was the only Geek to have seen the movie but he wasn't around to share his thoughts. We talked about the BS that Sam Jackson has been feeding us for years, making us think he was spoiling stuff but really he was just messing with our heads. We started to talk about the next phase for the MCU, and how there is a long break after End Game. We jump over to the Spidey verse, talk more about that movie and then how the new Spiderman movie will fit into the whole timeline.
For all you Trekkies out there, we give the Bakedown of Star Trek Discovery. Chris Baker gives us a complete synopsis of season 1 and a bit into season 2. We talk about how the new Picard based show will play out. He tells us how Discovery fits into the Star Trek universe, including the newer movies. You won't wanna miss this section of the pod.
Lastly, we talk about the CW multiverse with attention to Arrow, which had just been announced will be ending after next season. We have mixed feelings about the news, as that show was what sparked our podcast! Some of us think all good things end, and need to end to help it be defined as a good show. Hopefully, his Green Arrow will be absorbed somewhere in the DCU on a new Justice League type show. Who knows what other DC characters could start to get their own shows. Who would YOU like to see get their own show?
