Episode 204: The Night the Reindeer Died!

Sunday, December 20th, 2020

On the 12 days of Christmas, the movies I will see... have been voted on by the listeners of Geek Salad, the crew themselves, their friends and family, and anyone else they could badger for votes. But from all those votes came a list of 70+ films. And the top 12 movies get revealed in Geek Salad episode 204: The Night the Reindeer Died!

So join along with Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, and Todd as they count down the list. Whether the movie was solely focused on holiday themes, or took place during the holiday season, people had multiple criteria for what they considered to be a Christmas movie. As long as the movies were theatrically released, though, they were eligible. So what movie hit #1? And what movies might the crew disagree on?

And thanks to everyone for making a tough 2020 into a slightly less tough year.

Episode 176: Goofy’s How to Host a Podcast

Sunday, April 7th, 2019

In 1928, Walt Disney created a cartoon mouse which he named Mickey, and in doing so, he changed the world as we know it. Now, 91 years later, Geek Salad is honoring that legacy with episode 176: Goofy's How to Host a Podcast.

Andy, Mike, and Joe go through the main cast of Disney's classic characters, from Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Daisy Duck and more. They discuss the characters personalities, their voices, how they've changed over the years, and other interesting little foibles they may have noticed. So break out your Mickey ears and give your best Goofy "Yah-hoo-hoo-hooie!"

Episode 173: The Fleem is Okie Dokie

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

It's the Muppet Movie show, with our very special guest stars, Geek Salad! YAAAAAYYYYY!

Yes, after far too long without an episode on the Muppets, Geek Salad is rectifying that by going over the movies made my Kermit the Frog and company in Geek Salad episode 173: The Fleem is Okie Dokie.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they cover all the official Muppet movies. From 1979's The Muppet Movie all the way to 2014's Muppets Most Wanted, they discuss all eight theatrically released Muppet films (sorry all you fans of The Muppets' Wizard of Oz... if there are any). Did they truly lose the Muppet magic once Jim Henson died, or was there still some quality to be had? And was Muppets from Space really so bad? You'll have to ask Katherine about that last question, as I don't think any of the others actually bothered to watch it.

Episode 172: The Wishbook of Shattered Dreams

Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

It’s the Holiday Season! And the Geek Salad gang is sippin’ on eggnog and reminiscing about Christmases past….most specifically what they circled in their favorite department store Christmas wish books….and what they did (or didn’t) get under the tree in their respective years! 

 

So gather around the fireplace and ask yourself one question:  “How much would any of this stuff that I demanded from Santa actually end up costing my parents?”  The answer will make you weep….

 

Also, stick around for a quick wrap up of this interminable year of 2018, including a discussion about The Avengers: Endgame trailer!

Episode 171: The Green/Bonham-Carter Chronicles

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

There are a number of unique and stylized directors in Hollywood, but very few are so stylized that they have adjectives made of their names. One of those lucky few is Tim "Burton-esque" Burton, and the Geek Salad crew examines the many ups and downs of his career in episode 171: The Green/Bonham-Carter Chronicles.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they discuss the oeuvre of Mister Burton, from his debut in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure all the way to next year's Dumbo. Did he ever reach higher than Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands? Did he ever fall lower than Planet of the Apes? Many a good natured debates will be had.

Episode 164: The Nakatomi Family Christmas

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

When you think of some of the truly excellent and beloved movies of the late 1980s, it is genuinely shocking how many came from 1988. From Die Hard to Beetlejuice, some real gems came out of this year. Of course, there were some stink piles, as well. To help sort through some of these, the Geek Salad crew has returned to cover the movies that came out 30 years ago in episode 164: The Nakatomi Family Christmas.

Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine go through some of the most memorable films of 1988, for good or for ill, listing out the top 10 domestic grossing films of the year along with others that stand out in their minds. So if you had your sexual awakening to Jessica Rabbit, or simply believe that perhaps we didn't need a sequel to Crocodile Dundee, than sit back and enjoy. Even if those two qualifications don't match up with you, you can enjoy it, as well.

Seriously... what did Jessica see in that rabbit?!?

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.
