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!

Episode 89: Wilson SmogMonster Overdrive

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

(for Stitcher and iTunes users....due to issues with posting the episode, we're reposting...just for you!)

Imagine, if you will, you are stranded on a desert island.  Your sanity is only held in check by the 5 CDs that you’ve chosen to bring with you to live out your life with.  So what would they be?

Jim, Andy, and Mike took the question, first to their Twitter and Facebook audience, then, to Mike C. and Adam, who couldn’t make it record.  Then, they roundtable their 5 top CDs (and another 5 that came close) with discussions about College Alt Rock, Classic Rock, Country, and Charlie Daniels’ ability to appear during bar fights!

Then hang out for the Segments, when Michael McDonald reviews his Top 5 Desert Island CDs, a Stupid Stupid regarding Dino Porn, and a rundown of the trailer of “Thor: The Dark World,” and a run down of the first few weeks of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” in the Salad Shills!

A List of Demands for “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Okay folks….now that we’ve stamped out the final post orgasmic cigarette after seeing the super awesome “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” trailer, we here at Geek Salad have come up with a list of demands that will guarantee that the show remains awesome.

Alan Silvestri MUST do the opening theme.

I’m pretty sure that ABC already has somebody like Bear McCreary or W.G. “Snuffy” Walden on tap to provide weekly music to the show (although Michael Giacchino would be awesome), after the fanfare scored by Mr. Silvestri for “The Avengers,” every week must make us feel like we’re watching something awesome.

Female S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must be wearing skirts…like the micro mini kinds found in the new Star Trek flicks

It'll cause less outrage than the plunging zippered necklines showcased in “The Avengers.”

Now that Disney has the rights, would it kill them to get Punisher, Daredevil, or Ghost Rider right for a change?!?!

And while we’re on the subject, a few C-Listers won’t hurt either….I’m looking at you, Brother Voodoo!!!!

And to a far greater extent, how about GODDAMN MOON KNIGHT!

I realize that he’s really just a knock off of Batman, hence, while you’ll never see him appear in his own film (but Patton Oswalt’s version of Episode VII would put him front and center).

The less said about Coulson’s return from the dead the better….and for god’s sake, don’t give him PTSS just to give him a “flaw!”

Don’t water-down the characters from the movie Phases I or II by making them appear AT ALL on the series!

Speaking of watering down, keep us out of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent’s personal lives.  That includes any and all inner-office romances and issues with the kids!

If David Duchovney, Gillian Anderson, or any of the Lone Gunmen make so much as a cameo on the show, I vow on the lives of my children, that I will buy every season of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” on Blu-Ray!

….and finally…

Stan Lee absolutely MUST make an appearance in each and every episode either buying a hot dog from a street vendor, pulling a kid out of a busy street, or walking out of an elevator with Lou Ferrigno

Anything else I’m leaving off?
