He-Man - 082

BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL, WE HAVE THE PODCAST!!!!! Alex and Caleb discuss the action figure/cartoon crazy of the early 80s: He-Man. How did they come up with a character essentially named "boy-boy" anyway?

We delve into the nitty gritty and theorize on what those hairy loin clothes really were made of on this episode of GeekSquatch.

The Lion King - 055

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.

Tetris - 054

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!

The Crow - 052

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.

The NeverEnding Story - 051

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.

Gremlins - 049

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.
