12. Predator

12/12/2017
More
This year marked the 30th anniversary of one of the 1980s ultimate action films: Predator! Full of Schwarzenegger star power, lots of muscled manly men hunting and being hunted in a Central American jungle, and one of the greatest practical alien effects in cinema, Predator delivered many now-classic scenes and lines, including the (in)famous "Get to da choppa!" which even our kids have heard of, even if they don't know what it's from. - Predator...

11. Gearing Up For Last Jedi

11/22/2017
More
Chris, Nathan, and Dallas are getting excited for the next chapter in the newest Star Wars trilogy. They talk about what we know from trailers, TV spots, interviews, toys, and merchandising, and do some speculation. Figuring heavily in our thoughts is the theme of Luke being a broken man from dealing with Ben Solo's turn to the Dark Side and becoming Kylo Ren.

8/21/2017
More
In this episode, we talk about our favorite sci-fi TV shows, both current and in the past. Depending on your own age, you may remember some of these as well! *Note* Dallas made a geeky mistake. He mentioned The Expanse is available now on Amazon Prime, but unfortunately it hasn't made it to Prime yet (He may have been thinking of Mr. Robot Season 2). However The Expanse Season 1 is available. Season 2 is currently available to rent or purchase. Star Trek...

2. Star Wars, Star Wars, Star Wars

7/27/2017

The guys could have put this off, but given how seminal the Star Wars universe is for them as geeks, especially Chris and Nathan, they figured it was go big or go home. They touch on the entire franchise, but focus most of the conversation on the relaunching of Star Wars with The Force Awakens and Rogue One.
