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 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!!!!

Get your tickets and Fast Passes ready, because the team at Geek Salad is going to be taking you on a wild ride!  Relive the fun, the laughs, and the motion sickness when Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine discuss their favorite amusement parks. 

 

From the parks that the gang grew up around in New England, to some of the most head scratching “amusement” parks imaginable (Dollywood, I’m looking right in your general direction!) to the House of Mouse, the Geeks have you covered!

(For the parents out there, we would like to point out that, while we are discussing a whole bunch of Family FunTime destinations, this show is definitely NOT for your kids!!!)

Episode 118 (Part 2): Star Wars: I Would Have Preferred Order 69!

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

Welcome back to the galaxy far, far away as Geek Salad brings you the conclusion to episode 118: I Would Have Preferred Order 69! Join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, and Andy's awesome toy-making cousin Anna discuss the highs and oh-so-lows of Attack of the Clones, the Clone Wars TV series and movie, and Revenge of the Sith. If you're very lucky, they might even share some of their anticipation for The Force Awakens.

Aww, who am I kidding? Of course they'll gush their excitement about The Force Awakens. The trick would be to get them to shut up about it.

Episode 96: Terror Through the Lollipop Forest!

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

There has never been a term which has inspired more anger, hatred, and unbridled rage than 'game night'. However, showing true courage, Geek Salad is venturing into the realm of board games with episode 96: Terror Through the Lollipop Forest! Now I know everyone seems to remember board games fondly, but there are few other objects that destroy relationships, are rather perverse, and are only occasionally fun. So join Andy, both Mikes, Jim, and Joe as they bask in the joy and nostalgia.

After that, the guys discuss the qualities of the new Fantastic Four casting (as well as going off on a tangent about Maguire Spider-Man vs Garfield Spider-Man), review the new Maleficent and Godzilla trailers, and then shill evrything from TV shows to internet programs. Tons of fun all around!

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

When you woke up this morning, did you think you were going to get treated to a five minute conversation about Ric Ole?
