NOTICE - Some content may be unsuitable for younger audiences. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and our last podcast of the year. We discuss the cast announcements for The Manalorian, react to the new Godzilla trailer, play a game of Holiday Geek Words, pick the best/worst movies we’ve seen this year and come up with our own “on the shelf” characters. At times, it might sound like someone spiked our eggnog.
Author and mega-collector Mark Bellomo joins us to discuss his new book The Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe 1982-1994 and watch as we attempt to see if we know as much as him in a game of trivia. Also, we'll react to the trailers for Captain America and Avengers Endgame. Finally, we'll share who we'd like to leave off our geek Christmas List. Be sure to listen all the way to the end!
We're back, and so are the Fantastic Beasts! However, there are some not-so-fantastic complaints about it among fans. We'll discuss. Plus, we're adding general news stories to the show today! Not because you need it, but so Darth Taxus can ask how certain geek characters would respond to the stories. People are talking about that LOOONG Birds of Prey movie title, so we come up with some long titles and taglines of our own! Finally, we'll react to the live-action Lion King trailer and decide which Disney movies should NOT be made into live-action films.
It's Thanksgiving week, so our show is FULL of food, turkeys and geeks. In other words, Darth Taxus is turning Jeff and Regina into turkeys and letting Scott shoot at them. When that's not happening, Regina and Scott are serving Jeff geek-themed Thanksgiving dishes. Along the way, we'll discuss some Star Wars Galaxy's Edge news and take time to remember the great Stan Lee. We'll also make some Rotten Tomatoes predictions on some December movies.
ADVISORY - Some themes discussed in this week's episode might be unsuitable for younger audiences.
Disney Plus has officially been announced, along with Loki, Scarlet Witch and Cassian Andor TV shows. We'll react to those and come up with programs that should NOT be in the Disney streaming service. Speaking of Disney, they've teamed up with Google Home to provide music and sound effects for storytime. So, we'll tell some weird stories and see what sound effects come out of them.
We're off next week, so that's an excuse to celebrate Halloween early. This party is scary and a little demented. First, we'll discuss the buzz surrounding The Haunting of Hill House. Also in today's party, you'll join us for a scary guessing game and a horror character-themed edition of "F, Mary, Kill". The geeks will also react to the announcement of a Scooby Doo reboot and share the scary movies that terrified them as children. Join us, and don't forget which Han Solo mask you'll be wearing! Dennis Keithly subs for Jeff.
Want something completely different? Okay, we give you that almost every week, but today it's a host shakeup! Scott steps into Darth Taxus's chair, and Dan Zehr (Coffee With Kenobi) steps into Scott's contestant chair. This week, topics include the a new Toys 'R Us store concept, cancellation of Iron Fist, James Gunn writing Suicide Squad 2, Star Wars-themed candles, Star Wars Resistance reactions and a Holiday Special Mandalorian weapon. All that, plus a Star Wars Holiday Special trivia game!
New York City Comic-Con 2018 has come and gone, and that means...MORE TRAILERS. So, we talk about Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina trailer and DC's extended trailer for Aquaman. Plus, we check on how Vendom is doing. We now know the title for the new Star Wars live-action series (plus we got a photo) - The Mandalorian. So, we HAVE to talk about that, right? Jeff, Regina and Darth Taxus have had a chance to hear Scott's fiction podcast - The Crimson Files, and they share their thoughts on it. All this, plus fried food and puking! How can you turn away from that???
We react and discuss the trailers for Captain Marvel, Star Wars Resistance, Fantastic Beasts 2 and Bumblebee. We'll address the controversy surrounding the Nagini reveal in the trailer for Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald. In the spirit of prequel controversies, Darth Taxus challenges us to create an intentionally bad idea for a film. We'll also talk about the announcements of less Star Wars movies and Kathleen Kennedy's Lucasfilm extension.
It's our season finale (we're back on September 11), and we're ranking the top three most memorable stories that took place over the season. Plus, Darth Taxus makes it a challenge just to see how much we remember. Join us for that, as well as Rotten Tomatoes predictions for The Happytime Murders. FYI - Some adult themes are in this episode.
