062 - The Critic

062 - The Critic

It's good... in a bad kind of way... you could almost say IT STINKS! This week Caleb hosts as we talk about the Jon Lovitz failed adult primetime animated comedy called The Critic. The guys have an odd relationship with this cult cartoon as it should in theory be much funnier than it is, but it's dated references are probably keeping it from being timeless. Yet again we pitch a Netflix revival with some modern twists, will they listen to us? Hire us for millions?

060 - Big Trouble in Little China

Alex has apparently modeled his life after Jack Burton, and that’s... ok? It’s hard to say. Big Trouble in Little China may not be a financial success - but it’s a damn fun ride.

055 - The Lion King

The animation, the voice acting, the music, the feels.  The Lion King has it all and is one of the all time classics that came out of the resurgence that Disney has in the early 90’s.   

Brandon leads the stampede of memories as Geekquatch looks back at everything that made this movie great. Just remember to stay out of the elephant graveyard.  Hakuna Matata!

The Cryptogeekology: 20 questions category this week is movie.  It may or may not be a quick one, so listen closely if you want to beat the cast to the solution.

054 - Tetris

The history of this week’s subject is a murky tale of copyright law, Cold War drama, and psychological manipulation. It’s one of the most popular games of all time - Tetris!

Caleb crams as much as solid information possible into this week’s episode, Brandon tells a fun story about how his parents are thieves, and Alex has something to say about everything (as usual). Colin is out for the week, but he’ll be back!

Cryptogeekology is a big sad trash mess because Alex managed to save over his original recording of the game section - but luckily Heather joined them for a second round with a new subject. Let’s see if they can maintain the winning streak!

053 - Super Nintendo Games

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, S-N-E-S or Snes; no matter how you say it, the gray and purple video game box was an incredible evolution from the original Nintendo.  The new, more powerful hardware enabled developers to create games that were bigger, better, and more beautiful.  The library that accrued over its 10 year lifecycle is incredible.

052 - The Crow

The Crow is so much more than the film that took Brandon Lee from us.  It’s dark, grungy atmosphere set in a Detroit cesspool is the stage for a wild revenge tale that was inspired by the author’s personal loss.  

Alex resurrects this action classic as Geeksquatch hunts down all of the lesser known aspects of the film.  The gang runs down the film’s comic book source material, plot, special effects and cast of characters.  And, of course you’ll get the real story behind Brandon Lee’s death.


Video games are the Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions category this week.  Alex is on his way to stumping the squad, but there’s a glimmer of hope thanks to some knowledge nuggets that Caleb pulls out of thin air.

051 - The NeverEnding Story

Now that the film’s theme song is officially stuck in your head for the rest of the day, you might as well join Geeksquatch for a trip back to Fantasia. So, hop on the back of Falkor and let’s go!
 
Caleb steps up and takes you on a deep dive into the magical world originally created by German author Michael Ende.  Nevermind the fact that he didn’t actually like the film, because the gang covers all of the goodness crammed into its 93 minutes.  From Atreyu and Artax to Morla and Gmork, it’s all here.  You’ll even finally learn the name of Bastian’s mom’s name (Spoilers, it’s Moon Child). 


Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions closes the show with the TV category.  Heather’s win streak is on the line and it comes down to the wire.  Find out if Colin can save the team yet again.

049 - Gremlins

Popping into life from a script that was never meant to be made into a film, produced by Steven Spielberg and helmed by a rising horror director, Gremlins made a giant splash in the summer of 1984. Which is odd since it’s a Christmas movie. 
 
Colin hosts this week as he feeds the regular crew, sans Jaime, after midnight. The unlikely origins of the film, it’s cast, and production challenges are all discussed as well as that crazy ‘why I don’t celebrate Christmas anymore’ monologue that creeps us all out.


As always, we close the show out with Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions. Heather joins us again and the gang struggles with a new topic: Actor. See if you can guess who it is before they do.

048 - Dungeons and Dragons and The Satanic Panic

Dungeons and Dragons is a tabletop roleplaying game that took the world by storm. The Satanic Panic was a cultural phenomenon during the 80s and 90s damning nearly everything totally rad. This week the crew gets together to talk about both.
 
Alex hosts this week as he guides the cast through the history of D&D, Gary Gygax’s early career, how D&D works, and the causes of the Satanic Panic (as well as why D&D holds some of that stigma today). There’s also an impromptu dungeon encounter somewhere in there that no one was ready for.


As always, we close the show out with Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions. Heather joins us again and the gang crushes the new topic: Board Games. See if you can grab it before they do.
