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 112: Can We Go One Episode Without Mentioning Mrs. Slocombe’s P****?!?

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

The United Kingdom has provided the world with many things, many of which we actually enjoy! Among them are British sitcoms (Britcoms). From the '60s to more recent times, sitcoms from the British Isles have made us laugh with their unique humor, and the crew of Geek Salad breaks down some of their favorites in Episode 112: Can We Go One Episode Without Mentioning Mrs. Slocombe's Pussy?!? (which seems a lot dirtier when taken out of context)

Join Andy, Mike G, Joe, and Katherine as they go over such classics as Are You Being Served?, Blackadder, and Red Dwarf, as well as more recent shows such as Extras and The Thick of It. Then stick around for the trailer for Jem and the Holograms in... no, not Trailer Park. It finds itself in Stupid, Stupid! They then wrap up the show with a spoiler-laden review of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Episode 61a: The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

A little over 20 years ago, a cartoonist named Matt Groening introduced the world to the hilarious Simpson family and all the crazy inhabitants of Springfield. Now, in time for the 500th episode, join Andy, Mike, Jim, and Adam are getting together to share some of their favorite moments from this, one of the funniest animated shows to ever grace television. The Geek Salad crew crack open many bottles of Duff beer as they painstakingly narrow down their lists of favorite episodes to five each, though they do go off on tangents about many more then that.

In fact, they go into so many tangents, that the episode had to be split into two parts. So sit back, relax, and remember the many laughs that the Simpsons have brought us over the years, then come back in about a week for part 2, and even more laughs. And, just to add to the humor, the guys also discuss the odd proportions of Andrew Garfield's head compared to Spider-Man's costume as Trailer Park covers the new Amazing Spider-Man trailer.
