Episode 143: Syndicated Incorporated

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

Syndicated television shows really come in a few of different forms. There are the shows that were created for networks, first aired there, and then moved to syndicated after their run ended. There were shows that started on networks, but moved to syndication due to poor ratings and/or quality. And then there were the shows that were first aired on syndication. Well all three of these types will be discussed in Geek Salad episode 143: Syndicated Incorporated!

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they go over their many memories of syndicated TV. From the highs of Xena to the lows of Small Wonder and a whole lot of the in betweens, they go through both the joys and scars of their childhood memories of TV shows that couldn't quite make it to the big networks.

Be sure and stick around till the very end as the crew revives Trailer Park in honor of The Last Jedi trailer!

Episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

It's Holiday time once again, which also means that it is once again time for Geek Salad to present their annual Holiday episode. This time, they cover Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and the revenge of Tiny Tim in Geek Salad episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author).

Ever since it was first published in 1843, hardly any story in history has had as many adaptations as Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. While there have been a number of well-done faithful adaptations, and quite a few fun and different takes on it as well, there have also been more than a few versions that bring out the Scrooge in us. So join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Autumn as they experience both the highs and the lows.

They are also accompanied by three spirits: Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, and Mulled Wine.

Episode 133: The Sausage King of Little China (Part 2)

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Geek Salad is back with the second half of episode 133: The Sausage King of Little China!

We know you've all been waiting with baited breath to find out how they can possibly top the first half, so now I can safely reveal that they get to talk about some of their personal favorite films from the year, 1986. Will Big Trouble in Little China make someone's list (as if you couldn't tell from the episode's title)? Could Iron Eagle make the cut? And might we see a certain musical based on an alien plant?

Small hint, all answers point to "Yes".

Episode 133: The Sausage King of Little China (Part 1)

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Geek Salad's annual tribute to films of 30 years ago continues, and what a year they've gotten to this time! Join the regular crew as they chat about the awesomeness of the movies of 1986 in Episode 133: The Sausage King of Little China (Part 1)!

Yes, as you might have guessed with a year filled to the brim with film classics such as Labyrinth, Aliens, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, they went a bit long. So, to save a bit of your bandwidth, and for ease of listening, the episode has been cut in half. For the first half, they go down the list of the year's top ten highest-grossing films, at least highest-grossing in the United States. Can you guess the #1 film that year without looking it up?

Episode 95: Don’t Cross the Streams

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

30 years ago, a series of movies that were released that still resonate with the Geek public today.  30 years ago, we introduced the world to bananas in tailpipes, ritual heart removal, unlicensed/untested nuclear accelerators, and the PG-13 rating.  Now, the team of Andy and Mike G (along with special guests Joe and Autumn) parse the spectrum of the best movie year of the 80's.  Join in as they discuss (again) Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Dune, and Star Trek III, as well as new (old) favorites like Amadeus, Beverly Hills Cop, and, of course, Ghostbusters.

 

Then stick around for the Geek Salad review of The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, and some shills involving books, video games, the WWE Network, and a new musical about the EnglishShipBuilding industry in the 1960's!
