We would like to thank our wonderful listeners for being with us in this podcast journey. Due to things outside of the podcast realm, we had to make this the last episode of The Geek Supreme. In this final episode, we discuss Spider-Man, The Muppet Movie, Stranger Things and Comic-Con.
Some adult references are in this episode. Regina is back this week, and she's just in time to judge a weird game developed by Darth Taxus. In it, Scott and Jeff had to take the famous Superman and Lois flying scene from Superman (1979) and put in their own, "Can you read my mind" speech. The daughters of Bill and Ted have been cast, and Taxus has questions about their intelligence. Also, there will be reactions to the Swamp Thing cancellation, E3 video games and The Banana Splits horror movie.
After a hiatus, we have some catching up to do. That means new trailers and a lot of them, including The Dark Crystal prequel series, Terminator Dark Fate, Toy Story 4, Rambo Last Blood and Spider-Man Far From Home. Plus, Stranger This is coming back and it's bringing New Coke with it. Will anyone drink it? All this, plus there's another Honey, I Shrunk the Kid movie is in the works. Jenn Murray guests hosts for Regina this week.
Flight delays and lost luggage kept us from recording this week. So, in honor of the upcoming premiere of the Disney Plus Streamcast, here is our November 2018 show about Disney Plus. FYI - Some adult themes are in this episode.
FYI - Some adult themes are discussed in this episode. First, we'll check in on everyone's Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Avengers Endgame. We'll remember the greatness of the original Chewbacca - Peter Mayhew. We'll share thoughts on the trailer and the title reveal of Episode IX and discuss recent Disney+ announcements. Finally, we'll discuss Endgame (including spoilers) and listen as Jeff makes Darth Taxus uncomfortable as revenge for texting a spoiler before he saw the movie.
Well, just like Infinity War, things don't always turn out the way you expect. We planned to record this week, but Regina had to work late and one of Taxus' Vader Tots got the flu. However, we see this as a way to give listeners more time to see Endgame, and we can have a spoiler-discussion next Tuesday. So, today, let's look back on our Infinity War reactions and what we thought might happen next. Did anyone make a good prediction? Probably not, but let's check.
The Geek Supreme returns with a new episode on April 30th. This is a repeat of one of our most memorable episodes from May 2018. It was our immersive roleplay game in which the geeks were playing for listeners. Listen as they fight their way through a dungeon while talking about the topics of the day.
Last week, there was a three-way tie for Geek Supreme, and that means each geek enters today's show with a special power. They will use these powers against one another in hopes of being the last geek standing. Along the way, there will be Shazam reactions (spoiler-free), silly superhero catchphrases, ridiculous scenes from upcoming movies, Joker thoughts and more! Plus, you'll hear Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Hellboy and Avengers Endgame.
It was a slow news week! So, instead of making up fake news, we just filled today's episode with games and challenges. Today's show includes geek list challenges, predicting geeky behavior, remembering Star Wars dialogue and roleplay scenarios. If that wasn't enough, today's final score tally presents us with something that has NEVER happened before! Game on!
Today we'll react to the Stranger Things Season 3 trailer and the announcement to Bill & Ted 3. Darth Taxus will challenge the geeks with a "strange 80s things" game and a time travel-themed "would you rather" challenge. We'll discuss some of the best Captain Kirk moments as well. Finally, with all of the Batman casting rumors floating around, Taxus asks the geeks to read Batman lines as different celebrities. How good are the impersonations? You be the bat-judge!
The World Wide Web celebrated 30 years last week, and we'll dial-up some early internet memories. A new Avengers Endgame trailer is out, and Darth Taxus asks for one-word reactions to some of the some of the scenes. There is news of a new animated series surrounding Marvel's "What If" comics, so we come up with some of our own storylines. Finally, we'll react to a Twitter debate about Yoda that included Frank Oz before Darth Taxus creates his own Yoda debates.
The geeks have all seen Captain Marvel, and they'll share their spoiler-free reactions. Then, it's time to react to the new Shazam and Cobra Kai trailers! After that, there will be discussions about new details on the Lord of the Rings TV series, as well as attempts to pronounce the races of Middle Earth in a LOTR-themed quiz game. The Geek Supreme assigns Darth Taxus, Jeff and Regina with new names. Find out who's going to be called Sexy, Dad, Curly and Greatness.
New details about the new Star Wars park were released last week, and we're certain we'll never want to leave that place. We'll react to the new revelations about the rides, the food and the merchandise. We discuss the rumored Gremlins animated TV series and think about other 1980s movies would make good cartoons. We come up with movie technology that would be good and bad for the CIA to own. The Geek Supreme tasks the contestants to work specific movie/TV/pop culture lines into their opinions.
We're having our own movie awards show today! So, if you're into long acceptance speeches, meaningless bits and excessive political statements, this might not be the awards show for you. Well, there might be a meaningless bit or two. However, this will be all about geek movie categories like best actor/actress, best director, best villain, best action scene, best picture and more. You're invited to this non-exclusive, but very hip and fun event! Join us!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, we're back with some aqua-talk! Today, you'll hear Aquaman reviews, Aquaman trivia (featuring Sponge Bob) and some nautical quiz questions. We'll also react to the announcement of the new Ghostbusters movie, discuss the anticipated movies of 2019 and play a "Would you rather" game.
It's 2019, and it's time to catch up on new movie talk and get Darth Taxus to quit writing "2018" on his checks! We'll discuss our reactions to Into the Spider-Verse and Bumblebee. Since we're in a reviewing mood, Taxus reads us a variety of liners from other reviews, and we have to connect it to the correct movie. Finally, we'll discuss the new information that was released (or squeezed out) about bathroom habits at Hogwarts.
NOTICE - Some content may be unsuitable for younger audiences. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and our last podcast of the year. We discuss the cast announcements for The Manalorian, react to the new Godzilla trailer, play a game of Holiday Geek Words, pick the best/worst movies we’ve seen this year and come up with our own “on the shelf” characters. At times, it might sound like someone spiked our eggnog.
Author and mega-collector Mark Bellomo joins us to discuss his new book The Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe 1982-1994 and to watch as we attempt to see if we know as much as him in a game of trivia. Also, we'll react to the trailers for Captain America and Avengers Endgame. Finally, we'll share who we'd like to leave off our geek Christmas List.Be sure to listen all the way to the end!
We're back, and so are the Fantastic Beasts! We'll discuss. Plus, we're adding general news stories to the show today! Not because you need it, but so Darth Taxus can ask how certain geek characters would respond to the stories. People are talking about that LOOONG Birds of Prey movie title, so we come up with some long titles and taglines of our own! Finally, we'll react to the live-action Lion King trailer and decide which Disney movies should NOT be made into live-action films.
It's Thanksgiving week, so our show is FULL of food, turkeys and geeks. In other words, Darth Taxus is turning Jeff and Regina into turkeys and letting Scott shoot at them. When that's not happening, Regina and Scott are serving Jeff geek-themed Thanksgiving dishes. Along the way, we'll discuss some Star Wars Galaxy's Edge news and take time to remember the great Stan Lee. We'll also make some Rotten Tomatoes predictions on some December movies.
ADVISORY - Some themes discussed in this week's episode might be unsuitable for younger audiences.
Disney Plus has officially been announced, along with Loki, Scarlet Witch and Cassian Andor TV shows. We'll react to those and come up with programs that should NOT be in the Disney streaming service. Speaking of Disney, they've teamed up with Google Home to provide music and sound effects for storytime. So, we'll tell some weird stories and see what sound effects come out of them.
This party is scary and a little demented. First, we'll discuss the buzz surrounding The Haunting of Hill House. Also in today's party, you'll join us for a scary guessing game and a horror character-themed edition of "F, Mary, Kill". The geeks will also react to the announcement of a Scooby Doo reboot and share the scary movies that terrified them as children. Join us, and don't forget which Han Solo mask you'll be wearing! Dennis Keithly subs for Jeff.
Want something completely different? Okay, we give you that almost every week, but today it's a host shakeup! Scott steps into Darth Taxus's chair, and Dan Zehr (Coffee With Kenobi) steps into Scott's contestant chair. This week, topics include the a new Toys 'R Us store concept, cancellation of Iron Fist, James Gunn writing Suicide Squad 2, Star Wars-themed candles, Star Wars Resistance reactions and a Holiday Special Mandalorian weapon. All that, plus a Star Wars Holiday Special trivia game!
New York City Comic-Con 2018 has come and gone, and that means...MORE TRAILERS. So, we talk about Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina trailer and DC's extended trailer for Aquaman. Plus, we now know the title for the new Star Wars live-action series (plus we got a photo) - The Mandalorian. Jeff, Regina and Darth Taxus have had a chance to hear Scott's fiction podcast - The Crimson Files, and they share their thoughts on it. All this, plus fried food and puking! How can you turn away from that???
We react and discuss the trailers for Captain Marvel, Star Wars Resistance, Fantastic Beasts 2 and Bumblebee. We'll address the controversy surrounding the Nagini reveal in the trailer for Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald. In the spirit of prequel controversies, Darth Taxus challenges us to create an intentionally bad idea for a film. We'll also talk about the announcements of less Star Wars movies and Kathleen Kennedy's Lucasfilm extension.
It's our season finale (we're back on September 11), and we're ranking the top three most memorable stories that took place over the season. Plus, Darth Taxus makes it a challenge just to see how much we remember. Join us for that, as well as Rotten Tomatoes predictions for The Happytime Murders. FYI - Some adult themes are in this week's episode.
It's our most star-studded (or maybe we should say Star Trekked filled) episode to date. We'll discuss the latest Star Trek news, including the official announcement regarding the return of Jean-Luc Picard, the plan for year-round Star Trek TV shows and the break up between Star Trek 4, Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth. With that main course set, we'll give you some side dishes in the way of a high-budget Star Wars TV series, results of the Christopher Robin predictions and engines full of kittens.
NOTE - Some content in this episode may not be appropriate for younger children. As Geek Supreme, Jeff was given the power to make Scott and Regina think hard about a certain fandom. This is accomplished by playing a Muppet version of F***, Marry, Kill. Need we say more? Also, the geeks will discuss the Disney/Fox merger, as well as news about Star Wars Resistance, the Episode IX cast and The Flash movie plot change.
San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is in the books, and as always, there was plenty of trailers, showcases and announcements. That's why this week's episode is dedicated to the convention. The geeks will discuss trailers, TV announcements, apparel, panels, surprises and more. Plus, since it's Darth Taxus' birthday, they'll blow out candles and pick the best movies that came out during their birth month. Join us, and we won't make you sing "Happy Birthday".
San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner! So, we're going to spend some time discussing the exclusives we want and stuff we want to see. Is Thanos a big purple dumbass? Someone wrote an opinion piece saying his Infinity Glove plan was dumb. Joss Whedon is getting a new HBO series, and William Gibson is getting his Alien 3 script made into a comic book. All this, and we even throw in a Joker-themed Geek Word game.
This week, ants are back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they're in our podcast as well. If the geeks aren't careful, they could step in an anthill and get bitten. In the meantime, there will be reviews of Ant-Man and the Wasp, memories of Steve Ditko, new job ideas for Geoffrey the Giraffe, reactions to an 80s cartoon themes list and continued frustrations with some people in the Star Wars fandom (see Ahmed Best).
We're back from a summer break! Since there were so many topics waiting for us when we came back, Darth Taxus just put a bunch of them on a wheel. The results include discussions on the new DC streaming service, the possible return of Captain Picard, a new Overwatch hero/hamster and news about Indiana Jones 5 (coming much, much later to a theater near you...hopefully). We've missed you, so please join us for today's Geek Supreme match!
So, what was your reaction when you heard Jared Leto was getting his own Joker movie. This week, the geeks will share their reactions and make plot pitches for the film. They'll also share thoughts on the trailers for The Lego Movie 2, Predator, Into the Spiderverse, Bumblebee and Ralph Breaks the Internet. Everyone had to something to say about Kelly Marie Tran's departure from Instagram, and the geeks have some things to say too. All this, plus Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Ant-Man & The Wasp.
In this week's episode we discuss a show about the later years of iconic characters and a movie about the younger years of iconic characters.

Plus, find out their Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Incredibles 2.
A repeat of the February 13, 2018 show that started with our first reactions to the Solo trailer and lead into an 80s-themed episode. (Our recording day is Sunday, and people were out for the holiday. We'll be back with a new episode next week).
It's the LUCKY LISTENER episode, and we have a good (maybe bad) feeling about this. The contestants trying to win a box full of Solo A Star Wars Story for one of our listeners, but it won't be easy. This week, Darth Taxus is transporting them to a dungeon where they will have to fight there way to the big treasure. Along the way, they'll also discuss Deadpool 2 (spoiler-free), Margot Kidder and the Happytime Murders trailer.
We're back from a programming break and an Infinity War heartbreak. This week we spend the entire episode talking about Avengers Infinity War in a conversation full of reactions, observations and MCU themed puns. So Parker yourself in a safe spot, Quill out and enjoy the show!
Scott gives a programming update, including details on the next Lucky Listener episode. That's followed by a repeat of the November 17, 2017 Lucky Listener Episode that features topics on Star Wars, Thor, Justice League and Stranger Things.
Superman celebrated his 80th anniversary. It might get really messy if he blew out all those candles...so, we'll do it for him. In this episode, we'll hear birthday messages from some of his most famous villains. Last week, we discussed how much we loved Ready Player One. So this week, we'll react to a commentary that hated it and react to the movie - The Quiet Place. Finally we'll discuss the upcoming MASK and Blackhawk movies. It's a party full of cake, candles and crazy closing questions.
We are ready to review Ready Player One this week. Meanwhile, more classic console games have been announced IRL. The Avengers are getting ready for the battle of their lives in Infinity War, and we're predicting who might die and the Rotten Tomatoes score. The Announcement of a new Rick and Morty comic-book has inspired Darth Taxus to turn the geeks into characters from the show and make them fight it out (oh jeez). Also, the reigning Geek Supreme gets to infuse his own MEGASEGMENT into the episode.
Just when you think things couldn't get better, worse or STRANGER...you have this week's episode of The Geek Supreme. It comes complete with stories about draining comic icons of their blood and forcing someone to say they love Michael Bay. It comes with interest in a Last Starfighter reboot and excitement about an upcoming Star Wars movie. To top it all off, we'll throw in some lyrics without singing bad karaoke, and play some comic convention geek word games.
In an all-new, but kind of the same as last week's attempt at a show (that some say never existed), this week's Geek Supreme is full of toys, games and cobras. We'll react to the Deadpool 2 and Cobra Kai trailers. Also, how did Toys R Us fail, and can K*B Toys make a comeback? We'll also work in some video game talk since a new e-sports arena is coming to Texas, and a Ready Player One is coming to theaters.
If you haven't seen Black Panther yet, the numbers indicate you might be one of the only ones. We've all seen it, so we discuss it in this week's episode. Don't worry, the cat themes don't stop there. They hang around as we discuss The Last Jedi deleted scenes, the early reviews of Jessica Jones, the future of the MCU and more. So join us as the cat gets petted and the Scott gets clawed in this week's Geek Supreme.
The Muppets and The Cobra Kai are coming back, so we have to make it weird. Aquaman seems to have had a really good test screening. So, does that mean is character is "cinematic"? We'll discuss that, as well as some of the new details about the Star Wars hotel. Join us for those discussions as well as a game of WWRS (What Would Regina Say) since Jenn is stepping in for Regina.
Last week, it was announced that the losing geeks would have to talk like Yoda during today's show. If they forget, it can cost them points. That can lead to anger, the anger leads to hate, and the hate leads to Yoda saying some evil things. Along the way, we'll discuss the Toy Story expansion at Disneyworld, plus, the good, bad and the smelly toys that came out of this year's Toy Fair. Plus, we'll pitch our own toy ideas. So, if you haven't guessed it yet, TOYS is the theme of the day.
People grew up watching Han Solo in the 1980s, and yet somehow we're going to see a younger version of him in 2018. The Solo trailer reactions kick-off our 1980s-themed show. A movie starring Han Solo isn't the only thing attempting a comeback. Kenneth Johnson is working on a movie trilogy based on the classic V series. The podcast is also loaded with flashbacks about Goonies, Bill and Ted, Spaceballs, The A-Team, Predator, Star Trek TNG, The Last Starfighter and more.
The show is off this week, but that doesn't mean there isn't something to hear. Check out some of the best segments from The Geek Supreme, featuring plugged up characters, lathered up Sith Lords, frightening childhood stories and more.
Jenn Murray steps in for Regina this week. First, we'll try to make sense of a new study that claims it determined why people like/dislike the MCU and the DCEU. In a retro part of the show, we'll discuss the new Muppet Babies cartoon and clear up Scott's Skeeter confusion. We'll also talk about a man's mini-model of an old video store. Finally we'll talk about the blockbusters that The Oscars snubbed and try to predict Black Panther's Rotten Tomatoes score.
We live in a world where people find it necessary to create all-male and all-female versions of Star Wars moves and declare unreleased films to be utter disasters before any footage has been seen. So, we need to have a podcast about it. Don't worry, we also talk about vampires in Law & Order and cardboard boxes that make great video games! However, the geeks have to weather it all effectively because Darth Taxus is going to reward The Geek Supreme and penalize the losers.
You'll hear how everyone is feeling about The Last Jedi. Also, the DCEU is making more changes behind the scenes, all while Lindsay Lohan starts her online campaign to be Batgirl. Can either of those things turn into anything good...or disastrous? The Orville has been renewed for another season, and some are hearing rumors about a Family Guy crossover. Jodie Foster has thrown around her ideas about comic book movies, and we'll respond to those.
In our last episode of 2017, we talk about The Last Jedi. Join us as we discuss all things Episode 8, including new characters, new force powers, humor scenes, character deaths, little porgs, Rey's parents and more. We'll also fit The Last Jedi into our Star Wars rankings and talk about what may or may not happen in Episode 9. Along the way, each contestant will be tempted by the dark side. Event though we won't serve green milk or roasted porg, we would be honored if you would join us.
If San Diego trademarked "Comic-Con", how should other conventions respond? We'll discuss. We'll also talk about the prospects of a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie and who might star in it. Also, Wolverine is heading to podcastland and Jessica Jones is back in March. The show starts with Christmas present bribes and ends with The Force Awakens trivia questions. That makes for a happy holiday episode full of toilet motivational, wiener cooking, time-turning fun with a dose of Kanjiklub and beasts.
People freaked when Daisy Ridley talked about being done after Episode 9. Was the panic worth it, or was it an overreaction? The first word spoken in The Last Jedi has been revealed, and we try to finish the sentence. Did you know someone is trying to pick up girls on social media by claiming to be Chris Pratt? We'll discuss the Avengers Infinity War trailer and the controversy surrounding Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot crates. We'll also predict Rotten Tomatoes scores for The Last Jedi.
Justice League is out, and we finally get to see who made the best Rotten Tomatoes prediction. However, was the final result an injustice to the Justice League? What does this all mean for the future of the DCEU? We'll discuss. Mark Hamill doesn't want people to spoil The Last Jedi, so Darth Taxus asks everyone to come up with the worst possible things that could happen in the movie. As everyone knows, when Episode 8 is discussed, there is a good chance the word PORG will come up.
It's our first LUCKY LISTENER episode, and that means our contestants will be playing for three listeners this week. We discuss the second season of Stranger Things and play a Geekword game themed around the series. We'll also review Thor Ragnarok and get quizzed on some trivia. We'll react to the Justice League reviews, plus the news about more Star Wars. You'll hear Star Wars stories that feature rebels, Volkswagens, toaster ovens, glue sticks, drooling Gammorean Guards, squash, and smelly bubbles.
This week, we'll discuss two new TV show ideas - A Lord of the Rings series and a Goonies animated show. Also, a company that turns motorcycles into speeder bikes has the us wondering what other vehicles we'd like to drive around. Somehow Darth Taxus triggers a discussion about which characters in fandom deserve to have an electrical plug shoved in their mouth. And just how many 80s action/adventure movies can everyone name? You'll find that out and hear Rotten Tomatoes predictions for Justice Leagu
It's Halloween, and some spooky stuff is taking place in this week's podcast. Points are not safe among the screams and scary stories that will be heard today. Also, how truly EVIL is Kylo Ren? How suspenseful is Stranger Things 2 (no spoilers shared)? Is the Pokemon movie really disturbing? Also, you'll hear the hosts share scary stories about nightmares, spooky events and weird stuff that terrified them. Join us for this Halloween edition of The Geek Supreme!
Can the solo Han Solo movie now titled Solo inspire other character movie ideas? We'll find out! Is comedy going to make the new Thor movie less Thorerrific? We'll discuss. Plus we'll have a tasty cereal discussion that involves old favs, new ideas, marshmallows and a nightmare! All this and more in this week's Geek Suprememe. ***This episode contains some adult humor and suggestive content that might not be suitable for younger audiences.
The Geek Supreme competition is back with a new round of questions. Should Marvel create their own convention? How scary was that New Mutants trailer? How scary was that Last Jedi trailer? Does Emperor Palpatine need to be greased up? (Wait, how did that question get in there?) Listen to find out, and try not to throw up a little.
Last week, Darth Taxus asked the geeks to predict what My Little Pony: The Movie would score on Rotten Tomatoes. You'll hear the results and find out how much they know about the ponies. They'll also discuss the new Sigmund and the Sea Monsters show that's coming to Amazon. Plus, everyone will share what New York Comic-Con news caught their attention. Finally, we'll play the geek version of Password - GEEKWORD.
Last week, Jeff and Regina engaged in a passionate disagreement about Star Trek Discovery. This week we find out how that debate continued past the show and into text messaging. So, why is James Cameron making continuously DUMPING on Wonder Woman? David Bowie could've been the new Blade Runner villain, so Darth Taxus wants to know what other musicians would make great villains. The geeks will also react to Danny Elfman's comments about his approach to the Justice League soundtrack.
Scott talks with Coby Bell about his role in the Fox/Marvel series 'The Gifted'. They discuss the challenges his character (Jace Turner) faces while tracking the Strucker family. They also work in some fun talk about comic-con and action figures.
This week's Geek Supreme is filled with comic book characters, science fiction and bullet holes (not to be confused with bullet hoes). Is Inhumans already cancelled? Are we sill angry about Firefly? How good can The Punisher series be when compared to the other Netflix shows? How much does Jeff know about Sabrina the Teenage Witch? And what did everyone think about the first episode of Star Trek Discovery? Who will have the best answers to these and other geeked out questions?
The battle for Geek Supremacy starts this week! Scott, Jeff and Regina compete for points as Darth Taxus asks them questions about JJ Abrams directing Star Wars Episode IX, the idea of a True Lies television series, pictures of the new Hellboy and more. Along the way, the geeks will put their own director into a Star Wars movie, change their body colors and try not to laugh at Darth Taxus's jokes. This first episode has a little bit of everything, including a very close game!
This week, Scott and Jeff discuss Weird Science, another memorable comedy by John Hughes. Also, Anthony Michael Hall talks about what it was like working with Hughes and having to play Kelly LeBrock's love interest at such a young age. If you choose to listen while wearing a bra on your head, we won't tell anyone.

Please join Scott Murray for a most excellent first episode of Blast From the Past! In this podcast, you'll learn enough about Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure to write a history report. You'll also hear an interview with Dan Shor, who played Billy the Kid in the film.
