Episode 150: Chimichangas and Shawarma, A-holes! part 1 (The Donner Cut)

Saturday, September 16th, 2017

After suffering through the horrors of the top 15 worst comic book movies of all time, it's time to step back into the light. Yes, once again, the Geek Salad crew of Andy, Mike, and Joe assemble to tabulate the votes and count down the top 20 best comic book movies of all time in Geek Salad episode 150: Chimichangas and Shawarma, A-holes!

In fact, this list is so superheroic, it had to be seperated into two parts. Thus, here we present part 1, affectionately known as The Donner Cut. Here we cover numbers 20-11. How many films from the countdown 100 episodes, and six years, ago will still be on the list? Will Superman soar to the top? Will Wolverine crawl past the others? Will I run out of superhero puns? Listen and find out!

Episode 149: Duck Boobs and Bat Nipples

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

We truly live in a golden age of Comic Book movies.  Much like the second golden age of comics in the early 1980’s, the Nerd Generation has never had such an embarrassment of riches….

 

….however, these are not the movies we’re discussing this week. We’ve again taken the votes of the Geek Salad listening audience and compiled the Top 15 Worst Comic Book Based movies of all time!  Join Joe, Andy, and Mike as they count down the head-scratchingly awful, the “How could they possibly continue to get Fantastic Four wrong???”, and Joe’s all but giving up on the DCEU…at least it’s getting harder for him to defend it!

 

Also, special thanks to David McLain, who lends his voice to discuss his choices for the mediocre movies of the genre!   Do him a solid and check out his book, The Time Traveler’s Resort and Museum, which is available to purchase at Amazon!

Episode 138: The Discount Defenders!

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Superheroes have been on television for almost as long as there has been television. However, things are considerably different now than when Superman would bust through cheap sets and Batman danced the Batusi. To go over the current crop of excellent (and not so excellent) superhero TV shows, join Andy, Mike, and Joe in Geek Salad episode 138: The Discount Defenders!

From DC's "Arrowverse" to Marvel's Defenders, the Geek Salad crew express their love, indifference, or dislike for all of the current comic-inspired TV shows (or as many as they can remember, anyway). Which Supergirl character do Andy and Mike completely disagree about? What do Mike and Joe think about the most recent seasons of Arrow? The answers to these questions and more (obviously) can be found within.

Sweet Christmas!

Episode 128: Uncle Ben Dies Again… and Again… and Again…

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

In 1962, the world was first introduced to a comic book superhero that was quite unique for the time, and who has since gone on to become one of the most popular superheroes ever: Spider-Man! His history has been long and not always bright, but thankfully, it has finally resulted in the beloved character finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In honor of this, Geek Salad is proud to bring you episode 128: Uncle Ben Dies Again... and Again... and Again...

Listen along as Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine go through Spider-Man's story, throughout all forms of media. They discuss the good and the oh-so-bad of his comic storylines, villains, video games, television appearances, and films. This all culminates in the group's review of Captain America: Civil War.

Episode 115 Deleted Scene (Comic Con Chat)

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Here it is, a little late, but still fun all the same. Cut from episode 115, but saved from the editing room floor (actually a hard drive), is the discussion the Geek Salad crew had on some of the trailers that had their debut at Comic Con.

Will Andy's ambivalence for all things DC keep him from enjoying the Batman v Superman trailer? Will Deadpool swear up a storm in his trailer? If you're listening to this clip, you probably already know the answers. Still, it's a fun conversation.

Episode 111: Shawarma…ASSEMBLE!!!!

Monday, April 27th, 2015

We're here to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative....

 

...and with those words, the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked into high gear!  From the 2008 release of Iron Man, to last year's surprise hit Guardians of the Galaxy, the MCU has been kicking butt throughout the movie industry. 

 

...and now Geek Salad is here to rank them...

 

 

Thanks to our friends on Facebook, the team of Andy, Mike G., Joe, and Katherine count down from 10 to 1 the favorite films in both Phase 1 and Phase 2, leading up to the May 1st release of Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Which movies will end up lower than expected?  Which movies got more love than usual?  And who will rank supreme?

 

Then, stay tuned for a trio of Trailer Parks, where the team discuss the latest trailers from Star Wars Episode VII:  The Force Awakens, Batman vs. Superman:  Dawn of Justice, and Ant-Man.

Episode 102: Infinite Crisis in the Age of Ultron

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

The battle lines are drawn! The normal unity of the Geek Salad crew is shattered! What could possibly cause such a rift? Why Marvel vs DC, of course. It's Geek Salad episode 102: Infinite Crisis in the Age of Ultron. It's Andy, Mike G, and special guest Katherine for Marvel, Joe and Mike C for DC, and Jim being the great and powerful Oz... or maybe just the moderator. Will Marvel come out on top? Will DC triumph? Who cares as long as it's entertaining!

Episode 99: Almost There!

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Superman had his origin told in the very first issue. Batman took six issues of Detective Comics before his backstory was relayed. Amateurs! Geek Salad has taken 99 episodes before finally giving their origin story in episode 99: Almost There! Join Andy, both Mikes, and Joe as they drink deeply from the chalice of self-congratulation and look back at the first 98 episodes of Geek Salad. The gang shares how Geek Salad came to be, some of their favorite moments, as well as moments they wish they could call "Do-over" on.

They do manage to squeeze in a quick Stupid Stupid afterwards on some action figures that should never have existed, as well as taking on a TV trailer for the upcoming CW show, "The Flash".

Monday, May 19th, 2014

In 1963, Stan Lee decided to create a new team of superheroes. Unable to come up with a unique way that they all got their powers, though, he just decided that they were just born with their abilities. He grabbed Jack Kirby for the artwork, and behold, the X-Men were born!

Now, 51 years later, they have gained the ultimate honor! They are the subject of not just a Geek Salad episode, but a two-parter! So come join Andy, both Mikes, Jim, and Joe, as they discuss and debate their favorite X-Men comic stories, the pros and cons of the first three X-Men movies, and also have some giggles coming up with the most useless mutant abilities. Then come back in a couple of weeks for Part 2.
