This week's episode is all about reactions, predictions and throwdowns. Last week, there was a three-way tie for Geek Supreme, and that means each geek enters today's show with a special power. They will use these powers against one another in hopes of being the last geek standing. Along the way, there will be Shazam reactions (spoiler-free), silly superhero catchphrases, ridiculous scenes from upcoming movies, Joker thoughts and more! Plus, you'll hear Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Hellboy and Avengers Endgame.
It was a slow news week! So, instead of making up fake news, we just filled today's episode with games and challenges. Today's show includes geek list challenges, predicting geeky behavior, remembering Star Wars dialogue and roleplay scenarios. If that wasn't enough, today's final score tally presents us with something that has NEVER happened before! Game on!
Next summer, we get to hang out with time travelers Bill & Ted, but not before we go back to 1980s Hawkins for a third time! In his 88 years, William Shatner looks like he's time traveled to a younger age, and we know Captain Kirk has experienced a sling-shot around the sun. So, today we'll react to the Stranger Things Season 3 trailer and the announcement to Bill & Ted 3. Darth Taxus will challenge the geeks with a "strange 80s things" game and a time travel-themed "would you rather" challenge. We'll discuss some of the best Captain Kirk moments as well. Finally, with all of the Batman casting rumors floating around, Taxus asks the geeks to read Batman lines as different celebrities. How good are the impersonations? You be the bat-judge!
The World Wide Web celebrated 30 years last week, and we'll dial-up some early internet memories. A new Avengers Endgame trailer is out, and Darth Taxus asks for one-word reactions to some of the some of the scenes. There is news of a new animated series surrounding Marvel's "What If" comics, so we come up with some of our own storylines. Finally, we'll react to a Twitter debate about Yoda that included Frank Oz before Darth Taxus creates his own Yoda debates. It's not St. Patrick's Day anymore, but it was on our recording date. So, expect a few references to marshmallow cereal and gold.
The geeks have all seen Captain Marvel, and they'll share their spoiler-free reactions after checking their Rotten Tomatoes predictions. Then, it's time to react to the new Shazam and Cobra Kai trailers! After that, there will be discussions about new details on the Lord of the Rings TV series, as well as attempts to pronounce the races of Middle Earth in a LOTR-themed quiz game. The Geek Supreme assigns Darth Taxus, Jeff and Regina with new names. Find out who's going to be called Sexy, Dad, Curly and Greatness.
New details about the new Star Wars park were released last week, and we're certain we'll never want to leave that place - assuming we can get into it after it opens. We'll react to the new revelations about the rides, the food and the merchandise. Also, we'll discuss the rumored Gremlins animated television series and think about other 1980s movies that would make good cartoons. Finally, there's the CIA and their Black Panther tweets. Darth Taxus challenges us with coming up with movie technology that would be good and bad for the CIA to own. Along the way, The Geek Supreme has tasked the other contestants to work specific movie/TV/pop culture lines into their opinions.
We're having our own movie awards show today! So, if you're into long acceptance speeches, meaningless bits and excessive political statements, this might not be the awards show for you. Well, there might be a meaningless bit or two. However, this will be all about geek movie categories like best actor/actress, best director, best villain, best action scene, best picture and more. You're invited to this non-exclusive, but very hip and fun event! Join us!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, we're back with some aqua-talk! Today, you'll hear Aquaman reviews, Aquaman trivia (featuring Sponge Bob) and some nautical quiz questions. We'll also react to the announcement of the new Ghostbusters movie, discuss the anticipated movies of 2019 and play a "Would you rather" game.
It's 2019, and it's time to catch up on new movie talk and get Darth Taxus to quit writing "2018" on his checks! We'll discuss our reactions to Into the Spider-Verse and Bumblebee. Since we're in a reviewing mood, Taxus reads us a variety of liners from other reviews, and we have to connect it to the correct movie. Finally, we'll discuss the new information that was released (or squeezed out) about bathroom habits at Hogwarts.
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.
