Okay, this isn’t a regular podcast, but a bit of an experiment from the mind of Pat. This one is somewhat interactive in that in order to get the full effect, you’ll need to watch Aliens with us. Sure, you can just listen to us watching and discussing Aliens, but what fun would that be? Heck, it might not even be fun to watch Aliens and listen to us, but at least then you’ll have the movie to enjoy. But make sure you have the Special Edition handy, despite what the jackasses in the podcast say in the intro (aka Rus & Pat), with a running time of 2 hours 35 minutes. It’s mostly a good time… mostly.
Lucky 13! This is a weird one. Topics range from television shows like The 100 and the latest episode of The Flash to gluten, bullies, vegans and vegetarians (Pat’s one of ’em), comedian Maurice LaMarche, and a brief exchange about the incredible illustrator Drew Struzan and the documentary about his career, Drew: The Man Behind the Poster. Be sure to check our All-Things-Geek page for related posts, videos, and links! And as always, we thank you for listening!
An all-new, all-daring episode of Up Late is here! We eschew the usual Monday night recap of AMC’s The Walking Dead in favor of several geeky discussions about everything from the death of the ’70s & ’80s master TV producer Glen A Larson (Knight Rider, Battlestar Galactica, etc) to the scientific inaccuracies of the Jurassic Park movie (which we still love). Tangents abound as usual, so sit back and try to keep up!
Maybe our most fun episode yet? We’ll let you decide, but we really enjoyed making this one! We start off talking about algebra, rocket science, and the amazing event this week of the European Space Agency landing a probe on a frickin’ comet! Then we get all paleontological and debate how the dinosaurs went extinct about 65 million years ago (possibly from a comet impact). After we recap our feelings on the latest episode of the fun new CW superhero show The Flash, we take on a listener suggestion and recast an existing movie, in this case The Expendables! After you listen, check out our movie poster on our All-Things-Geek page and let us know what you think of our choices. While you’re there, take a look at our other posts related to this episode and previous eps.
Ten whole episodes! This one’s kind of long, so you may want to break it into chunks when you listen. We start off talking about the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, then we get into Star Wars films, which we fell in love with in 1977. Along the way, we somehow diverge into 1980s sci-fi films and the short-lived, early ’80s 3-D movie revival as well as discussing our appreciation for WWII veterans. There is some discussion of plastic surgery, and we make it back around to The Walking Dead before wrapping up with a jumbled mess of sleep-deprived rambling.
Number 9 is a Very Special episode of Up Late! For better or worse. This one’s a good 90 minutes, and we travel back to the ’70s again, make our way through the ’80s with a discussion of Diff’rent Strokes, but we then jump to the future with a discussion of the cool sci-fi adventure film Snowpiercer! Not only are the French responsible for Snowpiercer as it was originally a French comicbook, but Pat blames them for both creating Godzilla in the original film and for the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The episode wraps up with a discussion of the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead and what happened to Beth.

8 episodes in just over three weeks? Well, this time we talk about whether or not Michael Keaton is the Sean Connery of Batmans. What the hell does that mean, you ask? You’ll have to listen to find out. Rus declares his love for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Pat couldn’t care less, but we do agree on the awesomeness of Patrick Swayze. Road House! We also decide that with Highlander movies, much like the immortals themselves, there can be only one!
Right on the heels of episode 6, we’re live with Episode 7! Why record again so soon? So that we could discuss the movie schedule released yesterday from Marvel Studios for comicbook movies through 2019! We discuss upcoming superhero movies from Marvel, DC (Warner Bros.), Fox, and Sony. Actually getting to the topic of the day proves to be a challenge for us, however — once again — as we travel back to the ’70s to talk about childhood celebrity crushes, bad superhero shows, and Silver Spoons. For better or worse, this is our longest podcast yet, clocking in at 1 hour and 22 minutes, but there are plenty of spots to pause and resume listening later, so don’t be afraid to dive in!
Spoiler alert for Live, Die, Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (and others).
Watch for a new podcast later this week!
It’s mostly a zombie episode… mostly. We start out with a recap of previous topics like cartoons and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we dig into the latest episode of The Walking Dead, starting at the 12:45 mark, so stop there to avoid spoilers. We wrap up with a discussion about Zack Snyder & James Gunn‘s 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead.
Check out Panel to Screen for Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, comparing the comics to the tv show.
We’re back, lickety-split! This shorter, sweeter episode deals with comic book art and artists as disparate as Robert Crumb (right) and Walt Simonson, as well as our reviews of the latest X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, recently released on Bluray and DVD. We forget to discuss a few important aspects of that movie, like the breakout character Quicksilver, but we’ll try to get back to them at a later time. Also, we open the podcast with a new Red Hot Rebellion tune!
