Episode 152: MU-TH-UR is a Bitch!

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

In space, no one can hear you scream….that goes double if you’re watching any of the “Alien” movies past 1986’s “Aliens.” 

 

So to celebrate Geek Salad’s 10th Annual Halloween show, Mike, Katherine, Joe, and Andy sit down to discuss the horror that is the “Alien” movie series.

 

From Ridley Scott’s tense 1979 entry into the series, to the clunky schlock-fests in the “Alien vs. Predator” series, and back to Scott’s navel-gazing into the prequels, we’ve got you covered!

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.

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

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).

Andy, Mike, and Joe are back and they're ready to reveal the top 10 comic book movies. Will The Dark Knight hold onto it's top spot from the episode 50 list? Where will The Avengers sit on the list (considering the last list was made before The Avengers came out), because we know it will make the list somewhere. That movie was awesome! <editorial comment>

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.

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!

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they discuss such gems as The Princess BrideSpaceballsErnest Goes to Camp, and... Jaws: The Revenge. Okay, so they aren't all gems.

Episode 147: Such Heroic Nonsense!

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Back in 1984, kids had lost interest in most of the toy lines of the day.  Then, Hasbro released the Transformers line, and kids now had toys that could be cars, trucks, jets, and guns, as well as kick-ass robots! Now the Geek Salad team of Joe, Andy, and Mike discuss the toy line, as well as the multiple cartoon and comic book series and the 1986 animated movie.

 

Then, they’ll put their film school nerd caps on to discuss everything wrong with the dumpster fire that is the Michael Bay Transformers series.  It’s at this point that Andy will go off on proper character motivation and action sequencing while Joe and Mike bang their heads against the coffee table trying to figure out how, in God’s name, you can screw up the Dinobots!!!!

Episode 146: Boombox Barbecue

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Ahh, summer! Kids are out of school, adults are still at work being resentful of summer vacation, and people generally want to be outside and go on trips or just relax by the pool. On those hot summer weekends, when you're firing up the grill and need some tunes for entertainment, what are some of the best songs to crank the boombox to? Well worry no longer, for the Geek Salad crew is here to give some entries to their summer playlists with Geek Salad episode 146: Boombox Barbecue!

Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine all have very different ideas about what makes a great summer playlist, so even if one song doesn't work for you, there is sure to be a better one around the corner. Who will have the most eclectic mix? Who's playlist was primarily picked by their daughter? If you've been listening for any length of time, you probably already know the answers. But if not, then let the burgers sizzle and enjoy Boombox Barbecue! And even if you know the answers, go ahead and enjoy anyway, because... what the hell? And be sure to stick around after the conversation as Andy, Mike, and Joe give their review of Wonder Woman.

Episode 145: Two All-Beef Patties…OF DOOM!!!!!

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Nothing goes hand in hand with Nerd Culture better than fast food.  Whether it’s a Big Mac, a Five Guys burger, or an Arby’s roast beef (if you’re a monster), nothing hits the spot while you’re arguing over the merits of Val Kilmer as Batman.

 

On this installment, Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine discuss their favorite (and, of course, their not so favorite) menu items at national and regional fast food chains, as well as some choice mentions from the counter service at Disney!

 

Then, stay tuned for the return of the fan favorite segment “Stupid, Stupid” where the team discusses the lack of accessibility to “The World of Pandora” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom (short version:  we blame James Cameron!)!
