S02 | E43 ‘Brown Bag Solution’| Diversity & Comics’ | The Orville | Gotham

Our Hero reluctantly dives into the latest comic book controversy involving Youtuber ‘Diversity & Comics, Mark Waid and a bunch of other comic book professionals and fans.

S02 | E40 ‘Thanks for the Memories’

Sal gets a little dark in the first half of this episode as he rambles on about the future of Apple products and the possibility of directly implanting memories and experiences into your brain for a small fee.

S2 | E39 ‘Baby Driver’ movie review

Fast cars, bank robberies and a groovy soundtrack - Baby Driver is not your typical heist flick.

Big Geek Show S2 | E36: A Little More Off the Top

While Rick and Morty always skirts the line between morose, absurd, and mind bending, I feel like this featured some of the more complex themes and a bleak reflection of our own world. THere is so much to talk about in this one episode that I decided to dedicate the full drive to breaking down all the intricacies of “The Ricklantis Mishap”.

Big Geek Show S02E34: Questioning Questions

Over his career, Frank Miller has uses swastikas and Nazi imagery time and again. Is it simply a way to push buttons or is there a point to it all? Street gangs and punks wore swastikas to shock the ‘normies’, but is Frank doing something else in his comic book work? Twin Peaks great art or nonsensical musings of a pompous con man? Great art asks us questions, but shouldn’t the questions be more about life than the art itself? Find out on another exciting adventure of the Big...

Big Geek Show S02E32: Gaming the System

The penultimate episode of Preacher’s second season is disappointing but that won’t stop Sal from talking about it. The makers of Bladerunner 2049 offer a short film to fill in the gaps but Sean McKeever isn’t having any of it while Sal thinks it may be the evolution of film as studios try and compete with Netflix. Meanwhile... did an unknown author game the NY Times Best Seller List? Find out on this exciting new episode of the Big Geek Show! Email YouTube...

Big Geek Show S02E27: Sympathy for the Devil

— SPOLIER ALERT — Do you find it hard to make small talk? I do but I try anyway as I realize that our conversations are much too one sided. Once Sal gets over that he talks about Jack Kirby’s influence and legend on his 100th Birthday, art and his mediocrity, how Rick and Morty is not appropriate for an 11 year old, but he lets his son watch anyway, and the latest episode of Preacher with a strangely sympathetic Adolph Hitler.

Big Geek Show S02E26: Cocks in the end.

— SPOLIER ALERT — Another season of Game of Thrones in the books. But first a little dirty talk about Jon Ronson’s latest audiobook ‘The Butterfly Effect’, then Sal gets into the meat of the Season Finale including the fantastic and the underwhelming. Cersei and Tyrion come to an agreement, Balesh chokes on his own lies, Jamie finally stands up for his honor, Daenerys and Jon Snow get Targaryengaged (heh) and the Great War begins just as the season ends. Honestly it was too much to talk...
