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!
San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner! So, we're going to spend some time discussing the exclusives we want and stuff we want to see. Is Thanos a big purple dumbass? Someone wrote an opinion piece saying his Infinity Glove plan was dumb. Joss Whedon is getting a new HBO series, and William Gibson is getting his Alien 3 script made into a comic book. All this, and we even throw in a Joker-themed Geek Word game.
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).
In an all-new, but kind of the same as last week's attempt at a show (that some say never existed), this week's Geek Supreme is full of toys, games and cobras. We'll react to the Deadpool 2 and Cobra Kai trailers. Also, how did Toys R Us fail, and can K*B Toys make a comeback? We'll also work in some video game talk since a new e-sports arena is coming to Texas, and a Ready Player One is coming to theaters.

Can K B Toys Make A Comeback
Last week, it was announced that the losing geeks would have to talk like Yoda during today's show. If they forget, it can cost them points. That can lead to anger, the anger leads to hate, and the hate leads to Yoda saying some evil things. Along the way, we'll discuss the Toy Story expansion at Disneyworld, plus, the good, bad and the smelly toys that came out of this year's Toy Fair. Plus, we'll pitch our own toy ideas. So, if you haven't guessed it yet, TOYS is the theme of the day. So, come play with us this week!

We live in a world where people find it necessary to create all-male and all-female versions of Star Wars moves and declare unreleased films to be utter disasters before any footage has been seen. So, we need to have a podcast about it. Don't worry, we also talk about vampires in Law & Order and cardboard boxes that make great video games! So, there's some normalcy here. However, the geeks have to weather it all effectively because Darth Taxus is going to reward The Geek Supreme and penalize the losers. However, neither the winner or the losers get a shirtless Jeff Goldblum Funko Pop.
