Episode 161: Hulu and Screw

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

So you say you have too much free time? Well worry no longer! Geek Salad had returned with some great suggestions to while away an afternoon or two or ten binge-watching some streaming TV shows with episode 161: Hulu and Screw. If you think streaming services are only for catching reruns of The A-Team, then prepare for a lot of knowledge to be coming your way.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they list off some of their favorite shows which are available for streaming online somewhere and are eminently bingeable. Sure, there are the well-known ones like the Marvel series and Stranger Things, but the gang goes more into some shows that are great, but maybe are not as familiar as they should be. Never fear, though, for reruns of former shows do also make their appearances.

Episode 159: Who is Sally and Why Does She Like Mexico?

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Out of all the filmmakers of the past 50 years, perhaps of all time, few have been as popular nor seminal as Steven Spielberg. To celebrate the life and films of a man often considered one of the greatest directors of all time, Geek Salad discusses all things Spielberg in episode 159: Who is Sally and Why Does She Like Mexico?

Join Andy, Joe, and Mike as they discuss the many highs (Jaws, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park) and relatively few but still very lows (1941, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones) of Steven Spielberg. From his TV movie, Duel, all the way to Andy and Mike's *very* differing reviews of Ready Player One. They will delve deep and try and discover the identity of Sally!

Episode 157: Two and a Half Meningitis

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

 We all have TV shows that we absolutely love and go back episode after episode to follow along with the story and characters. However, we all also know of a show that we truly loved, but found it getting stale, dull, and/or just plain stupid the longer it remained on the air. In honor of those shows that refused to quit even after the writing did, Geek Salad presents episode 157: Two and a Half Menengitis.

Join Andy, Joe, and Mike as they discuss some of their favorite shows which slowly, or rapidly, devolved into some of their least favorite shows when they refused to end. Did ER really need to go 7 seasons after losing Anthony Edwards? Is Family Guy still on the air? And Heroes was only heroic for the first season of a 4 season run.

Episode 156: An American Werewolf on Golden Pond

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

While doing their yearly retrospecticons on the movies and musics of 30 years ago, Geek Salad had neglected to cover the movies of 1981. Well this oversight has finally been corrected as the crew finally brings you episode 156: An American Werewolf on Golden Pond. "The loons, Norman! The... AHHHHHHHH!!!" That might have made me interested in seeing that movie, if I'm honest.

Yes, from Time Bandits to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine tackle 1981's top ten grossing films before heading into some of the more memorable (for good or for ill) films of the year that also gave us Donkey Kong.

Episode 154: The Year We Were Introduced to Chinese Turkey

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

In 1983, a holiday movie was released that was only a modertate success at the time. However, that film has gone on to become one of the most beloved Christmas movies of all time. In fact, so many people enjoy this film that is has become an annual tradition for it to be played for 24 hours straight on certain cable channels from Christmas Eve to Christmas Day. Yes, this film is Bob Clark's "A Christmas Story", and here in Geek Salad episode 154: The Year We Were Introduced to Chinese Turkey, the Geek Salad gang show their own love for the film by providing a running commentary on it.

In this interactive episode, grab your own copy of this Christmas classic, pop it into your media player of choice, and listen along with Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they riff on the film, MST3K style. However, the crew spend about as much time praising the films various aspects as they do cracking jokes about them. All four of them quite adore this movie, too, after all.

Episode 153: Huked on Fonicks Wrked 4 We

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Honestly, who reads books these days? I thought books ceased to exist once you leave school. Well, apparently not, because the Geek Salad crew is getting all edumacated and literatical as they discuss some of their favorite books, book series, and authors in Geek Salad episode 153: Huked on Fonicks Wrked 4 We.

And if you don't understand the joke for that title, look up the commercials for Hooked on Phonics... or at least listen to Brian Regan's first comedy album.

And before you go thinking that we're just a bunch of weirdos (which we are anyway) for reading books, we got a TON of listener feedback for this episode, so we're obviously not the only one. So whether you've got a letter of admission to Hogwarts, are hiding from the dozen more monsters Stephen King wrote about this year, or just chilling the the Fremen of Dune, pull up a comfy chair and enjoy this latest episode before tackling the latest adventure in Tortall.

Episode 151: Nintendon’t!

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

Video game technology has certainly come a long way since its beginnings, and along that path, there have also been a large number of missteps. So break out your Atari Jaguars and Nintendo Virtual Boys as Geek Salad breaks down some video game fails in Episode 151: Nintendon't!

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine along with special guest Other Joe, Katherine's husband, and a triumphant return by original co-host, Mike C. They are pulling out all the stops to remember all the games and systems that brought us pain and misery through the years. Whether it was hours upon hours of dying in the original NES game of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles simply because my favorite turtle is Raphael, or trying to work out what kinds of drugs the designer of the Nokia N-Gage was on, they tackle the most memorable failures.

The Geek Salad crew has returned to finish off their countdown of the top 20 comic book movies of all time in Geek Salad episode 150: Chimichangas and Shawarma, A-holes! part 2 (The Whedon Cut).
