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.
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.
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.
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.
So, what was your reaction when you heard Jared Leto was getting his own Joker movie. Was it, "You must be joking?" (*RIMSHOT*) This week, the geeks will share their reactions and make plot pitches for the film. They'll also share thoughts on the trailers for The Lego Movie 2, Predator, Into the Spiderverse, Bumblebee and Ralph Breaks the Internet. Everyone had to something to say about Kelly Marie Tran's departure from Instagram, and the geeks have some things to say too. All this, plus Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Ant-Man & The Wasp.

People grew up watching Han Solo in the 1980s, and yet somehow we're going to see a younger version of him in 2018. The Solo trailer reactions kick-off our 1980s-themed show. A movie starring Han Solo isn't the only thing attempting a comeback. Kenneth Johnson is working on a movie trilogy based on the classic V series. The podcast is also loaded with flashbacks about Goonies, Bill and Ted, Spaceballs, The A-Team, Predator, Star Trek TNG, The Last Starfighter and more. So, put on your parachute pants and breakdance your way into this week's show!

Jenn Murray steps in for Regina this week, and that means she's playing for her (No pressure). She'll step into a Geek Supreme game loaded with news quizzes, Muppet Babies, Oscars and a mini-store. First, we'll try to make sense of a new study that claims it determined why people like/dislike the MCU and the DCEU. In a retro part of the show, we'll discuss the new Muppet Babies cartoon and clear up Scott's Skeeter confusion. We'll also talk about a man's mini-model of an old video store. Finally we'll talk about the blockbusters that The Oscars snubbed and try to predict Black Panther's Rotten Tomatoes score. There's so much fun to be had here, you might just say, "Oh god!"

The Geek Supreme is finally back! Today's episode was originally supposed to air on January 9th. In it, you'll hear how everyone is feeling about The Last Jedi one month later. Also, the DCEU is making more changes behind the scenes, all while Lindsay Lohan starts her online campaign to be Batgirl. Can either of those things turn into anything good...or disastrous? The Orville has been renewed for another season, and some are hearing rumors about a Family Guy crossover. Can a live action/cartoon crossover ever be a cool thing? We'll throw around some ideas. Jodie Foster has thrown around her ideas about comic book movies, and we'll respond to those.

Hey you guuuuys! This week, we'll discuss two new TV show ideas - A Lord of the Rings series and a Goonies animated show. Also, a company that turns motorcycles into speeder bikes has us wondering what other vehicles we'd like to drive around. Somehow Darth Taxus manages to trigger a discussion about which characters in fandom deserve to have an electrical plug shoved in their mouth. Is it a good idea to make a Red Sonja movie just because Wonder Woman made so much money? And just how many 80s action/adventure movies can everyone name? You'll find that out and hear Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Justice League. Sloth would want you to grab your Baby Ruth now and listen to today's podcast.

Last week, Darth Taxus asked the geeks to predict what My Little Pony: The Movie would score on Rotten Tomatoes. You'll hear the results and find out how much they know about the ponies. They'll also discuss the new Sigmund and the Sea Monsters show that's coming to Amazon. Plus, everyone will share what New York Comic-Con news caught their attention, including retro themes, comics, famous people in costumes, animation and more. Then, we find out who has had the most embarrassing experience at a convention (Scott and Jeff make that a close one). Finally, we'll play the geek version of Password - GEEKWORD.
