To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the premiere of the Battlestar Galactica reboot, Perry finally watched the entire series from beginning to end. He and Johnny discuss the things they liked about the show and then go on to totally eviscerate the cop-out crotch-punch of a finale.
It’s been a looooong time since our last episode, and we come back to catch up on news that you probably heard months ago. The boys also look at some of the trailers for big comic book movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain: America: The Winter Soldier (the latter two of which are already in theaters), debate the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and the main discussion is focused on the Marvel One-Shot All Hail The King, which the guys feel is a step forward in apologizing for Iron Man 3.
We start the New Year off wrong by watching Man of Steel, or as we prefer to call it, Man of Genocide. Both of us had a lot of problems with the new, darker Superman who is incapable of making decisions for himself, completely oblivious to his surroundings, and undertakes actions that feel like they’d be more at home on the rap sheet of a supervillain.
In the first episode of the Geek Screen, meet your hosts, Perry and Juan. Find out how they got into comics and all the media associated with that. Listen in as Perry and Juan discuss some of the latest news updates in the world of nerd-related media, including Juan’s thoughts on the casting of Aaron Taylor Johnson as Quicksilver in the upcoming Avengers sequel. And let’s not forget the main subject of the episode, which is Arrow, how it connects (or doesn’t?) to the burgeoning DC Cinematic Universe, and Juan makes a connection that will prevent you from ever taking Stephen Amell in a mask seriously. Plus, Juan may be responsible for your favorite TV show being cancelled. How? Listen and find out!
