Episode 56: Blake’s 7

In this episode, Morgan teaches Tom all about the history of slightly-naff but underrated ’70s sci-fi gem Blake’s 7.

We look at the show’s amazing theme music (and how Pulp ripped it off), we record Tom’s live reaction to its iconic cliffhanger ending and Morgan gives a stab at recording the first Two Geeks single.

Episode 55: Legend

Following on from our Labyrinth/Dark Crystal episode, Tom completes his trio of childhood ’80s fantasy movies by taking Morgan through the history of Ridley Scott’s 1985 epic Legend starring Tom Cruise and Tim Curry.

We explore the insane techniques used to make the movie, Tim Curry’s iconic performance, TWO cracking soundtracks and why it didn’t exactly stand the test of time.

Note: This episode was recorded before the sad passing of Blade Runner star Rutger Hauer.

Episode 54: Nicholas Briggs Special

Morgan and Tom sat down with the voice of the Daleks himself, Nicholas Briggs!

Nicholas spoke in depth about his love for all things Doctor Who, including his work on Audio Visuals, Myth Makers and many Big Finish Productions audio dramas.

The geek hero reveals awkward moments meeting Doctor Who legends, how he assumed Andy Serkis would voice the Daleks instead of him, and the projects he’d love to make if he got the rights.

Episode 53: Sega Dreamcast

Our first video game-themed episode in a while, where Tom explains to the Morgan the short history of Sega’s final console, the Dreamcast.

We look back at its rise and dramatic fall, why it failed, its bizarre adverts, and its most memorable (and downright bizarre) games.

Episode 52: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

We travel back to the late ’90s and one of the greatest teen sci-fi shows of all time. Morgan reminds Tom just why Buffy and the Scooby Gang were so great.

We remember its kickass theme tune, our several man crushes and when Anthony Head made Tom feel very stupid.

Episode 51: Choose Your Own Adventure Books

Take two! We first recorded this episode ages ago, but Tom managed to not record it properly, whoops. So here we finally are!

With some tequila and more beer than usual, this may be the drunkest we’ve ever been, which will make for some adventurous storytelling…

Tom takes Morgan through a history of gamebooks, COYA, Find Your Fate and more, and we also test out three books based on past episodes.

Expect plenty of pageturning, regretful alcohol consumption and awful Snarf impressions…

Episode 50: Tom vs Morgan (Donnie Darko vs Temple of Doom)

For our 50th episode, we’re doing something a little different.

We picked a classic cult icon each that one of us loves but the one hates, in the hopes of convincing them they’re wrong. Considering we usually agree on all things geek, it was a hard task just finding two things in the first place.

In the end, we plumped for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (which Tom hates) and Donnie Darko (which Morgan hates). But… WHO. WILL. WIN?

What’s worse? Willie Scott screaming for two hours or pretentious timey-wimey nonsense?

Hear our pitches as to why the other one is wrong, and find out who came out victorious.
