As Derek continues his discovery of Mr. Bong Joon-Ho, TBS has finally premiered its long gestated TV show adaptation of his 2013 cult-hit Snowpiercer and what an appropriate time to ingest a movie about class warfare and the end of the world! We first get into Derek's thoughts on the movie (after 7 years), the changes made to the show, and our thoughts on the show in general. SPOILERS THROUGHOUT - mostly for the movie, but if you wanted to watch the show completely fresh, beware!

Longtime friend, and past guest, of the podcast Robert Bexar (of Bayou City Geeks) for some reason didn't watch Westworld season's one and two when they first came out - weird, especially for someone who we knew would have LOVED it. After a years long campaign by Derek we're here! Robert joins us to talk about his first watch of Westworld all the way through to the season finale! 

Be sure to check out www.bayoucitygeeks.com if you want to see more of Robert Bexar and/or watch our zoom recording of this episode!

Tigertail is the feature film directorial debut of 'Master of None's' Alan Yang and our non-spoiler review episode of it features the return of our friends from The Stuff & Junk Show, Albert Patrick and Jiaming Liou! We go over how this film hits our own experiences in the various different ways, why people choose to immigrate, and how this film works - or for some of us - didn't.  

Check out Albert and Jiaming on The Stuff & Junk Show at whowhatwhereswhy.com!

One of our favorite things about doing this podcast is getting to have in depth conversations with our friends in ways we normally don't get to, about things they've really geeked out about. This time we have Derek's old theater buddy Patrick Croghan! He talks about going from wanting to do a drunken cable access show with his friends to getting into gritty theatrical dramas. Then we get into everything we've been consuming lately!

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and God Hates Geek's own Travis Moody. 

Moody and Myke have set off on two very different paths when it comes to their quarantine gaming. While Myke is getting sweaty with Doom Eternal (which Moody got a little into), Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, and intense sessions of Warzone; Moody has taken the more chilled out JRPG approach playing Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age and Persona 5. We also get into the latest console reveals for the Xbox Series X and the PS5, trailers for upcoming games, and Myke's Gamespass backlog.

If you want to skip to a certain section here's some timecodes:

  1. Intro and the PS5 Dual Sense News (Start - 11:53)
  2. Final Fantasy VII Remake Review Roundup (11:54 - 21:44)
  3. Resident Evil 3 Nemesis Remake and RE VIII Rumors (21:55 - 35:31)
  4. Doom Eternal (35:32 - 56:12)
  5. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (56:27 - 1:10:50)
  6. Inside Xbox and Myke's Quarantine Games (1:11:00 - 1:35:24)
  7. Persona 5 Royal (1:35:25 - End)

As we continue to self isolate and stay at home as much as we can we check out a movie that was supposed to come to theaters that has thankfully been made available to everyone On Demand - The Hunt, but before we get into our non-spoiler review of that Derek talks about how he's catching up on last year's coming-of-age comedy PEN15 and Myke scratches the surface of the intriguing Devs. 

Mar 19, 2020

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and God Hates Geek's own Travis Moody. 

With the pandemic we're facing, big changes are happening everywhere - including the gaming industry. Moody and Myke get into E3 being cancelled and what that means. We then look forward to the releases this month, talk about the Geekdom Gamescast's GVO fighting tournament and then Myke gets into Call of Duty's new Free-to-Play Battle Royale mode: Warzone

Mar 19, 2020

Social distance with us as we get into Derek's recent trip to Portland, the crazy situation the world is in today, and then a full episode of a TV show?! That's right, we're doing a FULL SPOILERS episode review of the Westworld Season 3's Premiere! We finally reunite with Delores and Bernard and meet new characters outside the park. Derek and Myke theorize about the show, talk about the world building of the future, and how LA still kinda looks like LA!

Damian Holbrook, one of our favorite con panel moderators, TV Guide Network hosts, TV Insider writers, and TCA Board members, returns to the podcast just in time to help you set your DVRs for the upcoming year. We talk to him about the 2020 TCAs, the big television press tour for the Television Critics Association where networks, streaming channels, and premium cable channels show off what they've got going on!

This year Damian surprises himself with how much he loves the upcoming Alex Garland thriller Devs, speculates about the new Paris Hilton doc, and discusses the monumental experience of having Hillary Clinton show up for a visit!

Once again we've sent out our Batsignal to summon our favorite DC BoiZ, DJ and James from Gamesters Pairofdice, and we got a bonus guest in the process! Their co-host, and one of our first guests, Gabe joins us to get into the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn and her adventures with the Birds of Prey! Of course the show goes off the rails and is as long as the movie, and of course it's a load of laughs throughout, but we also really get into the movie. Gabe defines the distinction between a comic book movie and a comic book movie, we get into what makes the action work, the virtue of killing off villains in superhero movies, and DC's watering down of their characters.

Check out DJ, James, and Game on their shows Gamesters Pairofdice and Jamesflix, on the MetaSquid Studios feed on your favorite podcast app! 

Feb 20, 2020

Thanks to Derek's intrepid work, we were able to see two of the more under the radar movies that came out last week and we're here with host-only, non-spoiler reviews! First we have the new movie starring Zoey Deutch 'Buffaloed' about debt collectors and the American Dream. Then we talk about the new Nat Faxon & Jim Rash movie 'Downhill' starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell about the American family! 

Feb 13, 2020

The first Oscar's of the decade and history is already made. Great friend of the podcast Sherice joins us to talk about the ceremony that was still infected by a Parasite even though there was no host. We get into all of it. The weird speeches, random musical performances, huge upsets, and the TRIUMP OF BONG JOON-HO! 

Feb 6, 2020

We're spicing things up with Derek's latest fanboy expedition. This time he went out to Las Vegas to check out the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo! We first get into his experience walking around the con, how it's different from other conventions, and what his highlights were. Then we get into on the floor interviews with actresses, directors, and models about what they geek about, what they like about AVN, and what stereotypes they want to break! 

Special thanks to AVN, and to:

  1. Alexis Fawx (heard from 33:38 - 41:06)
  2. Ricky Greenwood (41:07 - 50:26)
  3. Jane Bee (50:27 - 56:29)
  4. @lily2silly (56:30 - 1:04:08)

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and God Hates Geek's own Travis Moody. 

It's the premiere of our second season of the Gamescast and we're starting out with a BANG. Moody gets into his recent visit to the mecca of video games - Tokyo, Japan! From arcades to game stores to - basements? He gets into some new discoveries, a little bit of what the gaming culture is like, and the massive haul that he brought back to the states. We then have to talk about all the huge delays that have staggered the video game releases for 2020. 

Jan 30, 2020

With Derek away this time Myke gets to helm the ship with the return of our now go-to host replacement Ana Mendoza! We get into all the things that Derek doesn't usually care about podcasting about - theme parks and anime! Okay, maybe not all the things. Luckily Ana is a specialist on both! We go through her latest experience getting to ride the new Rise of the Resistance ride at Galaxy's Edge! Then we geek out about Disneyland in general. 

Finally Ana and Myke saw the new breakout anime movie 'Weathering With You'! It's one of the few anime movies that gets an actual release in a good amount of theaters in the US, and is a blockbuster success in Japan! We go in spoiler free for the first part and you'll be warned when we get into spoiler territory! 

Jan 23, 2020

With the Oscars right around the corner, and the Golden Globes in our rear view its about that time we check into the new decade to see what movies are coming out! Friend of the show, Jason Avalos, joins us to give our thoughts about all the movies that are coming out from now until the end of April! There aren't any obvious standouts, but there's a few surprises along the way!

Jan 9, 2020

As we start of a new decade we look back on the last year of the old one and go over our favorite movies and TV shows of 2019! Then, as a bonus, we each chose our 10 favorite films of the decade!

Jan 2, 2020

As a treat for you we're starting off the year with an exclusive gift! Derek recently had the opportunity to attend a special screening of Avengers: Endgame and recorded the panel post-movie featuring Kevin Feige, the Russos, the screenwriters, Alan Silvestri, and MORE! It was recorded off of his phone, but Myke tweaked it to make sure that everything is completely audible, but forgive us for the lack of studio clarity. Happy New Year Everyone!

Dec 26, 2019

Nothing quite caps off a year than watching a new 'Star Wars' movie and yelling about it with our friends, and this might be the episode to end all episodes for the movie to end all the movies. That's right, with the end of the Skywalker Saga its only fitting that we reunite with the geeks that we started it all with! GHG-family, and good friends of the podcast Eva Ceja and Travis Moody join us to talk about Episode IX 'THE RISE OF SKYWALKER'! We go FULL SPOILERS RIGHT AWAY so, if for some reason you listen to this podcast but haven't seen the movie yet, save it! Then come listen to us talk about it with our favorite geeks! 

Dec 19, 2019

We've been invited back into the View Askew-neverse once again to visit with our old friends Jay and Silent Bob. Going with us on this journey is friend of the podcast Matt Man from Deep Fried Geeks! We of course get into our reviews of the Popeye's Chicken Sandwhich and how it compares to Chick-Fil-A before getting into the newest offering from Kevin Smith - 'Jay and Silent Bob Reboot'. 

Dec 11, 2019

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and God Hates Geek's own Travis Moody. 

Although it's weird to think about how long 2019 has felt (Apex Legends came out this year) it's even weirder that we're already talking about our Game of the Year. So many titles have come and gone, so we take a look back on the year in the Gamescast, all the games we somehow missed, and all the games that made news. We then get into our top games of the year! After some honorable mentions, Myke and Travis countdown their top five games of 2019 - some that we've gone into great detail about, and some that we're deep diving into for the first time.

Dec 5, 2019

Although we've been able to preview an entire season worth of movies in an episode, for some reason this December is stacked with enough exciting movies to spend one episode discussing. Sherice joins us to talk about some smaller movies that aren't getting enough hype, some movies Derek and Sherice have already seen that are amazing, and of course - Star Wars. 

Nov 27, 2019

Myke is back before the Thanksgiving break to join Derek for a quick recap of all the movies they've been watching! Derek has seen Waves, Harriet, and more while Myke talks about Ford Vs Ferrari and Knives Out.

Then we get into a NON SPOILER review of the new Scorsese movie, The Irishman followed by a spoilers up until episode 3 review of The Mandalorian. 

Nov 22, 2019

It's a takeover!! Derek invites Ana from the PopPrismPower Podcast to join him since Myke is galavanting. They talk about Booksmart, Charlie's Angels, and how hot Zendaya is! Ana also trashes Game of Thrones once again!!

Oct 24, 2019

Did you think we were going to let a DC movie come and go without bringing our favorite BoiZ back onto the show? That's right - from Metasquid Studios - James and DJ, our DC Boys, are back on the podcast to talk about the latest offering from Warner Bros and DC, Joker. Coming along for the ride is our favorite actor/writer/director/producer/everything Jason Avalos! We get into spoilers for the movie from the get go so WARNING, if you have yet to see the movie and do not wish to hear what happens then maybe download this one for later! 

Check out DJ and James on their shows Gamesters Pairofdice and Jamesflix, respectively, on the MetaSquid Studios feed on your favorite podcast app!
