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.
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 most star-studded (or maybe we should say Star Trekked filled) episode to date. We'll discuss the latest Star Trek news, including the official announcement regarding the return of Jean-Luc Picard, the plan for year-round Star Trek TV shows and the break up between Star Trek 4, Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth. With that main course set, we'll give you some side dishes in the way of a high-budget Star Wars TV series, results of the Christopher Robin predictions and engines full of kittens.
NOTE - Some content in this episode may not be appropriate for younger children. As Geek Supreme, Jeff was given the power to make Scott and Regina think hard about a certain fandom. This is accomplished by playing a Muppet version of F***, Marry, Kill. Need we say more? Also, the geeks will discuss the Disney/Fox merger, as well as news aboutStar Wars Resistance, the Episode IX cast and rumored Flash movie plot change.
This week, ants are back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they're in our podcast as well. If the geeks aren't careful, they could step in an anthill and get bitten. In the meantime, there will be reviews of Ant-Man and the Wasp, memories of Steve Ditko, newjob ideas for Geoffrey the Giraffe, reactions to an 80s cartoon themes list and continued frustrations with some people in the Star Wars fandom (see Ahmed Best).
